Elizabeth's 5 Dirty Truth Stars Review - Good Reads Link

This is the First in the Dirty Truth's series for Piper Rayne... Vance is funny, charming and will do anything to get his leading lady for his script.  

On stage right you have, Vance Rose... he is an out of work producer, who is really a screenwriter.   Here comes Vance's big chance, and when the film investor agrees to finance his script only if a certain leading lady is cast as the lead. He must do anything to get her, ANYTHING. Even keep a secret.

Enter stage left, Layla Andrews... the actress that always gets the role of the best friend, never the leading lady.  So when she is in the need for a nanny for a week (or two) she makes a deal to get what she needs and scoop up a role for leading role. THIS IS HER CHANCE!

When the sparks fly with Vance and her kids, she finds herself falling hard. What could go wrong?

On a side note: when a leading man can make you laugh while changing his first diaper (yes there was poop!) and in turn make your own son laugh so hard when you read him the scene he can't speak... you know that this story is a winner.


Heather's 4 Star Review

When a Hollywood Screen Writer needs to make a deal for the project of a lifetime, he becomes... The Manny! I'm a huge Piper Rayne fan and I'm so glad I had a chance to read this book early. I love the fact that they have a new series that can be read even if you've never read anything else of theirs. However, if you have, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Vance is a mess. A hot mess. Normally I'd say this about the female lead, but it's the only way I can describe him. His hot mess makes him a bit awesome. What kind of man agrees to be a Manny just to get his way? Layla is determined. She's a sassy, fun, working mom. I loved her spirit and outlook. I can handle anything for a week. Seven days. Easy peasy. <--- Famous Last Words! Anyone who says that doesn't have much experience with kids. Thankfully, this book allows us to to experience all the sexy, hot, humor that Piper Rayne is known for with this book!


Lana's Review of The Manny : Good Reads Link

Vance Rose can be my Manny any day of the week!!!- Lana @White Hot Reads

This sexy screenwriter needs Layla Andrews to be his leading lady in his script and in order for her to star in it, he agrees to become her Manny and not tell her his secret. He is not sure what he is doing but is determined to figure it out while getting her to star in the role. 

He is unprepared to say the least in being the Manny. I laughed so hard at some of the scenes he was involved in. He soon realizes that he made a mistake and tries to make it right all the while not losing Layla. No one said being the Manny was easy.

  Blurb:     Secrets and lies are a killer way to start any partnership—especially a horizontal one.    Now, I’m a glass half full kinda of guy, so, after the ‘you’re fired’ speech was directed at me, I figure now’s the time to be the screenwriter I came to sunny California to be. Unfortunately, there are about as many people trying to sell a script in L.A. as there are vegans in the pacific northwest. &nbsp;    But lucky for me, a few weeks ago my agent found an investor for my script. Hooray, all my problems are solved! NOT.    Because the investor will only agree to fund my film if I use one specific actress. And that one specific actress? Well of course, it just has to be the same actress I screwed over only months before. But she doesn’t need to know about that one tiny detail, does she? All that matters is getting her to agree to do the film and I’ll do whatever it takes. We can leave the past, in the past, right?    I thought my charm would win her over. Never would I have been prepared for the terms she laid out on the table.    She needed a nanny.    I needed a lead actress.    Somehow I became The Manny.

Meet Piper Rayne...

or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?
We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.
What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
