Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun?   Was the one night stand a good idea?   Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.   In my defense I had just moved back into my grandparent’s house, I’d lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped ‘LOSER’ on my forehead.   So when the guy behind the bar started giving me THE look…you know, the one that promised I’d be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he’d earned in the sack…when he gives you that look, you don’t bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!   Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate by the way.   I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I’d figured out WHO the bartender was, I was already falling for him.    


Amazon/Goodreads Rating:  5/5
In Patti's Imagination Rating:  10/10

Whitney’s life is not going as she had hoped and she feels as if ‘LOSER’ has been stamped on her forehead.  The latest downward spiral was losing her dream job and having to move back home to her grandparents home.  Of course she loves her grandparents, they raised her but she is an adult who should be able to take care of herself.  Then, after moving back home, the guy from Tinder stands her up, which isn’t the first time a date has stood her up, but it drives her into a one night stand with the bartender wasn’t such a great idea, especially since she wakes up and can’t remember a thing.  So who was this bartender and what happens when she finally figures out who he really is?
Of course there is this complicated relationship with Cole, the bartender.  Cole isn’t who you think he is which only adds to the story.  The way Whit and Cole meet up again, after that one night stand is great.  There are a couple of twists to the story, but for the most part this is a great romantic comedy.
Whitney and her two besties, Lennon and Tahlia, bring some great laughs to the story, as well as, awesome support for each other when things are difficult.  Then all the added laughs the dog brought to many of the scenes make for a hilariously enjoyable story.

First off, if it wasn’t for the little note from the authors, I would not have know that Piper Rayne was actually Piper and Rayne writing this book.  Who Piper and Rayne are I have no idea, but they make a great writing team.  This book was so much fun to read and many times found it difficult to want to put down, because I needed to know what was going to happen next.  I am looking forward to reading more from this duo as both Tahlia and Lennon stories are yet to be revealed.



Three Signed Paperbacks for The Bartender

About the Author

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.
