It’s time.

Time to get a life.
Time to start over.
Time to move beyond the past.

The guys in the Single Dads Club would tell you it was time years ago, but until recently, the risk of hurting my little girl outweighed the benefit of getting a piece of ass.

Now that I have a tween daughter on my hands? It’s becoming more apparent with every poster hung on the wall, every fight o

Sexy Beast is just that. A sexy beast of a read that is EASILY Piper Rayne’s BEST BOOK YET!

This book is super sexy. I loved EVERY MINUTE  of it. Garrett is my FAVE single dad yet! Lordy, that man was insanely hot, moody, broody, delicious and hella dirty!

His relationship with Charleigh was EXPLOSIVE. The undeniable attraction and chemistry between Garrett and Charleigh was palpable.

This story well and truly packed a punch though, with an intense slow burn, alongside a heartbreaking past that

descriptionI'm not a huge fan of the covers for this series. The model on this one DOES actually look like the hero. So bonus points for that. The composition and typography are pretty good, and as I said with the first cover, I really like the series graphic.description

descriptionSo where to start with this one. I enjoyed it more than book one, but not as much as book two. Which is a HUGE bummer because Garrett has been the single dad I have been looking forward to reading about from the start.

Let us start with the positives.

4.5 "Take a freaking look at that cover" stars!!

Best book I've read from this duo yet!! This story was amusing, believable, charming and romantic. Shoot, it was too easy to imagine the cover model as Garrett.

Charlie: beautiful, kind, generous, sympathetic, patient, persistent, just plain awesome

Garrett: handsome, brooding, hurting, strangely charismatic, open and honest

I loved how smoothly the story and its dialogue flowed. The love between these characters gelled beautifully and I think the p

Since the first Piper Rayne book I picked up they have been an insta click for me. They are my go to for light hearted, funny, sweet and sassy romance. And I already know all about Garrett and Charlie from the last two books in the series. So when I picked up Sexy Beast I thought I knew exactly what to expect but I really didn’t.

I guess I will start with Charlie. I really liked Charlie but I would have liked her to show a little more backbone in the beginning. As we know she has crushed on Garre

I loved Garrett and Charlie. I think he was my favorite Single Dad. Syd was awesome even with her preteen behavior. I loved how she noticed more than anyone realized.
Charlie had this life long crush on Garrett and I was happy to see that he noticed her as well. She never gave up on bringing the man Garrett was before back out. After everything Garrett went through he deserves to love and have a second chance at a happy life.

Garrett is a sexy beast, the king of the beasts - and I'm keeping him!

The name Garrett means - Rules by the spear. Hard. Bold. Strong. That's exactly what he is - or so I thought. I had in my mind that he was this standoffish, quiet aloof, bearded, flannel wearing lumber sexual, but loyal friend to the Single Dads Club gang. He turned out to be the biggest marshmallow of the bunch! Dedicated to his now teenage daughter, he really doesn't have time or room in his heart for another female. He's h

Dang! Piper Rayne can close out a series! The trope is my crack and I was hooked from the beginning of this story!

We met Garrett and Charlie in the previous books and we have all sat around waiting for what we all knew was inevitable and man was it worth the wait!

"I'm damaged. Damaged goods. And she is the perfect package and should stay that way."

Holy Moses, did I flat out adore Garrett! I thought the other two in the Single Dads Club we amazing, but Garrett is hands down my favorite! Like if
Super into the good single dad thing, and I liked the teenage crush made real part. (Could have done without the overprotective sibling bit, but thankfully that went away quickly.) Loved Charlie having an independent relationship with Sydney.

I wish it hadn't ended with a surprise! pregnancy and then rushed togetherness, but I sort of get why the author did it. I'd be curious to see what it looks like if you don't do that, though.

Overall, fun read!

Out of all the books in this series, this was by far my favorite!

Piper Rayne found the perfect balance (for me) between Charlie being a dorm mat and her being patience with Garrett. It is obvious from the very beginning of series that Charlie has been in love with him since,...forever! What the reader doesn't know, is that Garrett has been interested in her too but I thing the reader discovers it in Dane's book.

From the start, Charlie decides she is going after Garrett and putting it all out

4.5 Missing Puzzle Piece CROWNS

Sexy Beast, the story of Charlie and Garrett, is one I have been waiting for since the start of the Single Dads Club series, and these two did not disappoint.

Garrett is just the gruff single dad I was hoping he would be. He has endless love for his daughter, which will make some ovaries explode. More than that, though, he is just a good man. He wants to do his job well, surround himself with the people he cares about, and be the bes

The third book in the Single Dads Club series, I have been eager to dive into this one purely for the hot and enigmatic Garrett. He peaked my interest way back in book one and I was hoping for a HEA for him and Charlie.

Garrett had always known his best friend, Vance’s little sister Charlie, had a crush on him. Even now as a beautiful grown woman, he sees her lingering eyes on him from across the bar. For the sake of the bro code he has always stood firm in his resolution to not go there, ever.
This is a double edge sword for me. I loved this book, the series and I hate that it’s the end of the series. I had so much fun hanging out in Climax Cove. Who wouldn’t when you could go to Nail Me Hardware! The innuendos get me every time! I have to say that this was my favorite of the three books. Loved Griff, Charlie and Sydney.

This book is an unrequited love story. Charlie has had a crush on Griff for a very long time. He is her brother’s best friend so they more or less grew up together. G

Title: Sexy Beast
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 4/5

This is the third and final book of Piper Rayne's Single Dad's Club series and in my opinion it was the best one.

A tale which started with unrequited love between Charlie and her older brothers best friend Garrett but over time blossomed into a love story so touching it would soften the hardest of hearts. It was a heart wrenching read but it also had the perfect mix of hotnes

Oh, Garrett Shaw, you had me snot sobbing as I read this. And it was worth every tear I shed to see you get your happily ever after :)

Garrett and Charlie were perfect together and I loved it. It was a little more angsty than the previous books in the series, but that is because Garrett is such a closed off, broody guy. There were tears, and laughs, I wouldn't change a thing about this! I really think this has been my favorite of this series :)

I loved the introduction to Charlie's brother Vance

3.5 Stars

For 2 books, we have been watching what is pretty obviously a connection with Garrett and Charlie; a connection that they have ignored, pretended doesn't exist, and just generally not acted upon.

This one is the book in the series I was most excited about, to watch Garrett realize what was right in front of him and that he didn't need to deny happiness to himself.

There were a lot of places where my heart broke for Garrett, where I wanted him to wake up an

ACK! I’ve been waiting (impatiently ha ha) for Garrett’s book. I knew he’d be my favourite single dad, just from the glimpses we got of him in the first 2 books, but I had no idea how hard I would fall for him and how close he was to shattering my heart. Garrett absolutely stole my heart.

He’s a giant teddy bear who is kind, sexy, quiet and sweet. He’d give a friend the shirt off of his back. He’s just a really, really good guy. Unfortunately life has dealt him a crap hand and he’s still sufferin

“Older brothers best friend, age gap, single dad kind of story, 5 stars”

*Sigh* If you haven’t read the other two books in the Single Dads Club Series don’t fret, but I recommend you do. If you have then be prepared to be surprised. We don’t know much about Garrett, but this book will blow your socks off. He’s the brooding alpha male we all love with three killer points going for him; 1) Single dad 2) Age gap 3) brothers best friend. Add those three together and what’s no

I’m always excited when a Piper Rayne book shows up on my kindle. Every single book I’ve read has been a fun journey. I have truly enjoyed every single book, from Marcus to Dane, but I was most intrigued by Garrett. The guy who doesn’t say much sure is one hell of a man!

Sexy Beast was amazing and I absolutely loved it! The storyline and characters that Piper Rayne created were beyond wonderful, and I truly loved reading every single page of Garrett and Charlie's story. Sexy Beast was my third novel from this author duo, and it has definitely been their best romantic comedy so far. I can't wait to read more from them!

Garrett and Charlie were phenomenal characters and I dearly loved them and their story. I loved their personalities and red-hot chemist

I liked this one, but not as much as the others in the series. The whole, you are my BFF's little sister, I have to protect you, can't even think about being attracted to you, got old fast. It was easy to see why Charlie crushed on Garrett for years, easy to see why Garrett didn't see Charlie for a few years. The age difference was big when they were younger, it would have been inappropriate and then there was Melissa, Garrett's girlfriend in HS, then wife. But she has been dead for over a decad ...more

Finally we have the story of broody, bearded Garrett. I've been waiting and waiting and waiting to hear his story. And it doesn't disappoint. I just have to point out the cover photo is pretty much exactly how I've imagined Garrett to look like. He's been this enigma in the series so far. The broody, man-of-no-words. My type of dude.

Oh, yes... this is series, but don't worry, you can read Garrett alone. He's soooo worth reading alone. Or with Dane and Marcus. But Garrett is my fav

OMG, Piper and Rayne knocked it out of the park with this book. I read a little about Garrett in the previous 2 Single Dads Club books and he always seemed disinterested. Little did I know the man has a past, and a sad one.
Garrett is a big brute of a man who comes off quite often as gruff. He's actually a sweetheart with a 12 year old daughter named Sydney and he is very protective of his little girl even though she's not so little anymore.
