Real Deal (Single Dads Club #1) by Piper Rayne


Goodreads Review



Red Flags…

Too loud.
Too clingy.
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 six 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.

When we’re together all the complications fade away and I have to keep reminding myself, even if I can have her— I can’t keep her.






Goodness gracious me! Does liking the cover help me in any way for what I’m going to write now will most likely not make me popular.

Well I finished the book and I really do not know what to say. Not what I expected to be honest. I struggled with the beginning and the middle immensely and found it to be tedious and tiresome. On top of that my believability muscle wasn’t really working when it came to the story. Or maybe I also just don’t have humor.

It felt week and flat and at times I wanted to DNF. It picked up at the end of the book. Maybe because it was the end. The couple just seemed to plod along the whole time really with nothing happening.

I love this trope but I expected more with Marcus and the whole disaster of that he turned her down at the age of 18 and then suddenly he has the hots for her. This takes place six years later.

I liked Cat and that she stood by what she wanted and that she deserved the real deal which means that Marcus needed to get unstuck. He sure did have his head stuck in the sand and if he gotten his finger out of his arse sooner than it would have been better at least IMO.

I would have liked to have seen the outcome of Cat’s family a big deal was made about it and then nothing.

The one person I despised in the book is Dane. God help me I wanted to punch him every single time he opened his mouth to give advice.

I haven’t read any of their other books and for the moment it’s a maybe I also requested book 2 and for the moment I’d rather stick needles in my eyes.
