He’s the arrogant Manhattan realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in negotiations.

I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall from his office.

From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client comes to me?

Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.

Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us, the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against each other.

Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.

Game on.

My Review

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have "Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle" (okay...you caught us, that's our tagline). A little about us... 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.

Where do I even start to review this book? 

I guess it all starts with Piper Rayne. If you've read them before you're probably already a fan and if you haven't I can honestly say there isn't any one book to start with. All of their books rock. They have great characters, both leading and secondary and they know how to write romance. 

So this is the second book in the White Collar Brothers series and although it can be read as a standalone I loved knowing the story of Annie and Enzo. And I really loved that they were such a part of this story.

Carm was exactly what I expected him to be at the start and I kind of went back and forth on him. I wanted him to fall hard with a bang. And he kind of did but as always I wanted a little more. 

Bella was perfect for Carm but I wanted her to get more in general. Her mum sucked and I really wanted her to get her head out of her arse. Luckily for Bella I have no doubt mama Mancini will love her but it sucks we didn't get to see it.

And although I loved the epilogue it has left me obsessed with Dom and I can't wait to get my grabby hands on it. And I love that it looks like we will get a whole lot more of Carm and Enzo.

Title: Sweet Promise
Author: Jennifer Woodhull
Genre: Contemporary Romance



About Sweet Promise
Sexy, British celebrity chef Lucas Nash is bringing the heat. I just hope I don't get burned.

  When I won the Southern Baking Championships right out of high school, I never imagined how far that success would take me. The first season of my baking show was a hit, and I love what I do.

I'm almost twenty-one, not a teenager anymore, and as it turns out, my agent thinks my girl-next-door image needs to grow up a little, so she sends me on an audition for a new show.

When I find out that I'm auditioning to co-host with the sexy British celebrity chef I've admired for years, I can't believe my luck.

Lucas has had a lot of trouble the past couple of years, though. A nasty divorce. Binge-drinking. Partying. We won't even talk about those pics of his impressive package that were splashed all over the tabloids.

I'm supposed to be the solution to all Lucas' problems. Meeting him, though, is just the start of mine.

When we set off on a European filming tour, sparks fly.

Lucas is definitely bringing the heat.

I just hope I don't get burned.

Plenty of heart, sexy heat, and full of international destinations and some exciting twists and turns, Sweet Promise delivers a satisfying happily ever after between a sweet, Southern baker and a sexy, British alpha male chef. The first book in the Promise Series, this book can be read as a standalone romance - no surprise cliffhangers.

The Promise Series


Exclusive Excerpt
We got to Jerry’s, the Borough Market cafĂ© frequented by most of London’s food scene elite for the early morning shoot. The camera crew had been on-site for hours, getting some atmospheric shots before sunrise. The restaurant had been closed for us, which John had arranged, with only a few local chefs and neighborhood regulars were allowed inside for filming.

  We walked into the kitchen to find the crew set up and filming. I sat on an empty counter while the makeup artist tended to my face and hair. Lucas had not acknowledged me when we walked in. Instead, he stood in the back, chat- ting and laughing with his chef buddies while the crew set up for the recipe shots.

  When the set was ready, I joined Lucas behind the counter.

  “Morning,” he said boisterously. “Good-mornin’,” I retorted coolly.

  “Someone got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning,” he said playfully.

  I just looked at him without saying another word. He shrugged as if unbothered by my demeanor. He started the recipe, and I tried to be charming on camera as I read my lines, but my sour mood was making me come across as stiff and unnatural.

  We took a break, and I walked out through the alley door to stretch my legs and regroup. I put my palms on the back of my hips and paced back and forth. I was facing the street when I heard the restaurant door behind me open and shut. I knew who it was without turning to look.

  “What do you want?” I didn’t care if he could tell I was annoyed.

  “Whoa, what’s your problem today?” Lucas strode up to me and put his hands on his hips as he faced me.

  “What’s my problem? You’re the one with the problem!” I crossed my arms in a huff and turned away from him. He threw his head back, laughing wildly.

  “What are you laughin’ at?!” Growing angrier by the second, I spun to face him, hands on my hips, my brow furrowed.

  “Georgia, you are absolutely precious, do you know that?” He towered over me and tried to take me by the shoulders, but I shrugged him off.

  “Stop it!” I said, “You don’t get to do this!”

  “What on earth are you talking about?” I tried to wrig- gle away from him, but he took my shoulders in his big hands and held me fast. His grip was firm, though he wasn’t hurting me.

  “Georgia, why are you angry with me?”

  “You sent John to get me this mornin’. You didn’t even acknowledge me when I came in.” My eyes were begin- ning to well up in spite of myself. Damn it! I hated, hated, hated it when I couldn’t control my emotions. He put his arms around me and tucked a curl behind my ear.

“And you don’t know why,” he said. I shook my head indicating no, more confused than ever. My bottom lip pouted just a bit as I stared up at him, betraying all my hurt and disappointment. He gave me a look that flashed between concern and attraction.

  “Oh, sweet Belle. What am I going to do with you?” He shook his head a little. “You don’t know what you did last night.” I looked into his eyes, not understanding.

“You didn’t know what I was asking you to do when I asked you to come with me after the shoot, but you didn’t even seem to care. You just came because I needed you. You stayed with me, and listened to me…,” he put his hand up to my jaw, running his thumb across my lips, pulling the bottom one down slightly.

  Despite my anger, his fingers left a trail of electricity behind them on my skin everywhere he touched me.

  “You didn’t want anything in return. You held me as if… well, anyone who was looking on from the outside might have thought you really did… care for me on some level.” He said the last part carefully. He looked at me like he wanted to kiss me and run from me all at the same time.

“So, you’re sayin’ I gave you what you needed, and you – what? You punish me for it? You shut me out? That’s what you do when someone cares for you?” He looked a little surprised at my choice of words. I was trying so hard not to show my hand, but it had to be evident that I was starting to have some sort of feelings for him.

  He was gorgeous, of course, and any woman would be attracted to him. This, though, was something more than that. The time we had spent together on set, and when he had taken me to dinner and toured me around the city… little by little, he had shown me another side of himself. It was a side I didn’t know if anyone else saw, and that guy was someone I could definitely fall for.

  Lucas put his face down, resting his forehead against mine and stood there for a moment. “I’ve never met any- one who excites and terrifies me so. When we get togeth- er…,” I started to object, and he put his thumb to my lips again, and this time, I didn’t argue. I knew the decision was already made and though the good-girl upbringing in me wanted to fight it, the woman I was becoming wanted to embrace it, and in the end, the woman was far stronger than even I had given her credit for.

Lucky Suit...
I'm breaking up with set-ups. No more “can I introduce you to my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” Machines know what’s best, and I’ll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find the ideal man, thank you very much.
Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him -- his nickname is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted and full of heart. But when I finally get together with him in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before.
Turns out there's more to our meeting than I had thought, and when we discover what truly brought us together, all bets are off.

Once Upon A Red-Hot Kiss...
A man needs to stay far away from falling into bed with his best friend.
Even if she’s sexy as sin, sweet as candy, and damn near irresistible every single day.
But not only are Macy and I best friends, we’re also complete opposites. She’s perky, upbeat, outgoing and I’m . . . how shall we say . . . a little bit broody.
Then, she reveals something to me that just might lead me to revise all my rules on friends in bed...

Too Good To Be True…
To say I’m wary of love would be an epic understatement. Keep that four-letter word far away from me.
But then a matchmaker friend insists she can pair me with the perfect man for me.
Even when sparks fly and chemistry crackles from the first date, I refuse to believe this kind of insta-connection can be the real thing.
Even though for the first time it feels like it could be.
Or is it just too good to be true?

Strong Suit (a short story)…
From the day I meet Ginny in the conference room, I’m smitten with the co-worker who’s ten years my senior. And I’m going to pull out all the stops to win her over.

This book was exactly what I didn't know I needed. So this has been a super stressful, bad week and I picked this up thinking it would be funny along the lines of the pucked series. And when I first started it and realised it was a little more serious and emotional I was a little disappointed. 

Then once I stopped worrying about what it wasn't like I was so involved. I adored Cosy. She was such a great character. I really loved everything about her, she was just so much her own person I felt like I could reach out and hug her.

Griffin was awesome too. He was so upfront with his feelings and what he wanted. I loved that he didn't play games or try to play it cool. Maybe he didn't communicate some things very openly but it wasn't done to hide things it was purely to prevent Cosy from freaking out and I liked that he was worried about her. And as soon as it came out he apologised and explained.

So even though I didn't get what I wanted I absolutely got what I needed and I ended up loving every word. And now I am even more excited that netgalley has granted me Handle With Care so I will be trying to find a quiet corner to read in.
