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.
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.
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.
Hilariously funny! What does a man do when his lifelong dream is about to come true? Anything at all in order to make it come true!
Vance is a successful Hollywood producer. Now he is ready to write his own script and using his real name, make the movie he was meant to do. One catch, his investor wants a specific actress for the lead... and she might be trouble.
Layla is about to divorce her estranged husband. She holding on by her fingernails as she continues to work in supporting roles and raise her two young children. One in particular, Payne (yes, just like pain) is acting up because of the divorce. Three nannies in one week and they all left running! So what does Layla need in order to sign on to Vance's film? She needs a Manny ~ a man nanny~ who will watch over Payne while she finishes her current film.
I was roaring out loud as I was reading this book. Great for an escape and tingling with sex appeal.
I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I thank the author for sharing a copy with me.
