Title: Real Deal
Series: Single Dads Club #1
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Too much make-up.
I could go on and on. The other guys in the Single Dad’s Club would say I’m obsessed with finding them. But none of their kid’s mothers call a maximum-security prison home either, so their opinions mean shit.
Caterina Santora has her own list of red flags…
She’s too young.
She’s my client’s daughter.
She’s my five-year old’s camp counselor.
Even after repeating this mantra to myself every morning on the way to Lily’s summer camp, guess what happens the moment I see Cat? Yeah, that mantra turns into ride me, doggie style and reverse cowgirl.
Every. Damn. Time.
The fact that she doesn’t remember me from seven years before grates on me until I don’t have it in me to leave her alone any longer. I have to have her. But our lives are opposites in every way. In no way compatible.
This is the first book of Piper Rayne’s that I have read. It will not be the last. This is the first book in the Single Dad’s Club series. What’s better than a stingle dad that is awesome and takes great care of his daughter?
Marcus is that single dad. He loves Lily more than anything. She is five and she is his everything.
Caterina, or Cat, is an artist, but she’s a camp counselor for the summer. The summer camp is only for kids of single parents. She ends up being Lily’s counselor.
She is a blast from the past for Marcus. She was only eighteen when she met him six years ago. Cat is ten years younger than he is.
I really liked all the characters. Marcus does have some things to work through. The biggest being Gretchen.
These three single dad’s will give you some laughs. Each of them are so different.
This is a very good read.
This is a short prequel to Real Deal. It shows us how Marcus ended up in Climax Cove and the first meeting between him and Cat.
I’ll be honest, if I would have read this first, I wouldn’t have liked Cat when reading Real Deal.
“Real Deal is a super funny, sweet and sexy romantic comedy that will leave you satisfied from beginning to end!” ~Whoo Gives a Hoot (Aurora Hale)

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.
