Pippa Grant and her zany romance style are here with this romp, a Rom-Com Fake Marriage, where two of the most unlikely puzzle pieces fit.
Hot Heir reintroduces us to Viktor and Peach, the bickering and baiting pair who are more likely to light one another on fire than be caught in a hot air balloon over Goat’s Tit. However, as luck would have it, they are afloat over a peach orchard and arguing the finer points of sandbag babies at the opener. From that point on, you should know Pippa Grant is not here to disappoint.
I don’t know how to rate this. Is it really good? YES. Is it much the same formula that Piper Lawson tends to use in her other series? YES. I give it a 5-star rating for the story and a 3-star rating for the originality and come up with this 4-star rating.
Beautiful Enemy brings back two characters introduced to us in Piper Lawson’s last series, The Rivals Trilogy, Rae and Harrison. Rae has trekked off to Ibiza to recover her reputation after outing Harrison on social made her a pariah. Little does she realize that she’s walked into the lion’s den, and she’s about to be at her enemy’s beck and call for the next month because she just signed a contract to play at one of his venues.

No spoilers here: I’m not too fond of Letty. Unlike the previous two MKU installments, I finally liked Kane–for a little bit.
A little reminder. Letty dropped the bomb on Kane as to what their puddle loving resulted in, and that literally put him in a tailspin at the end of the book. So this one begins with him in the hospital and with Letty in the arms of another dude.
Really, now? How many dudes do you need? I know, all of them. Because Letty only knows what she wants when forced to admit it.
3. Don’t ever, ever let anyone know you’re friends.
For three years, I followed the rules. Vicky and I met once a week at the diner where I worked. I was her slice of normalcy, she was the one person I could confide in. It might have been unconventional, but it worked for us.

After fighting for my life and proving myself worthy, they brought me into their deadly world. It was glamorous but twisted. Torture, death, and crime followed me everywhere I went, chiseling away at parts of me until I wasn’t the same anymore.
Slowly, I betrayed my best friend, and fell in love.
Chances are they’ll ruin me. This thing between us has deadly consequences. But in this criminal world, I’m learning that the rules don’t apply when you’re the boss.
