If you’re keeping up with my reviews then you’ll know that I’ve just recently become obsessed with all things Piper Rayne! After devouring this author duo’s Blue Collar Brothers series, I got my hands on an early copy of 𝗟𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗮 𝗢𝗻𝗲-𝗡𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱, the first book in a brand new series by the incredibly talented duo.

This book was everything I love about Piper Rayne books. If you're not already on the bandwagon this is a good place to start. When I first read the blurb for this story I didn't realise it was the kick off for a longer family series. But I am so glad it is.

This book not only was a super sweet romance it also was a great introduction to the family and town and has me so excited and invested in everyone else's story.

Austin was the perfect boyfriend in so many ways that I really loved him but dam

It’s been a very long time since I’ve been excited about a new to me author, but Piper Rayne has drawn me in and I want to should her name from the rooftops. Lessons from a One-Night Stand is the first book in her new series The Bailey’s and if it is indicative of what’s to come sign me up and take my money. The book has everything I love about contemporary romance; intriguing characters from the two primary to the supporting cast, an intriguing storyline, enough conflict to keep it interesting
Lessons from a One-Night Stand was the first book in the Baileys series by Piper Rayne. It was my first book by the authors.

The Baileys were the heart and soul of Lake Starlight, Alaska. There were nine siblings: Austin, Savannah, Brooklyn, Rome (twin), Denver (twin), Juno, Kingston, Phoenix (twin) and Sedona (twin). Austin was the oldest at thirty. Their parents died when he was twenty one and he became the guardian to the seven youngest. He returned to Lake Starlight, accepted a position at th

Another winner from Piper Rayne!

I loved the family dynamics in the Bailey family! What a great bunch of people. It took a minute for me to warm up to Austin, but I ended up really liking him. And I liked Holly even more :)

So much love for Lesson from a One-Night Stand by Piper Rayne!

I loved the storyline, it's well written, highly entertaining and I seriously couldn't put it down.

I enjoyed getting to meet and know the Baileys, they are a fun and a little crazy family that have had to overcome losing their parents at a young age, deal with their pain but also be their for one another.

I loved Austin and Holly, they have amazing chemistry and I loved watching their relationship develop. I found them both li

Piper Rayne delivers the first book in their brand new series, The Baileys, and it did not disappoint! I’m a sucker for a family saga—add in a charming hero and witty heroine, I am sucked in for the long haul! These characters were funny, relatable, and real, making it an addictive page turner I couldn’t get enough of! I’m literally so obsessed, I dreamt about them and have a huge book hangover! 5+ Stars from me!
So much fun. Can't wait for the next one.

I'm always incredibly excited whenever I see that the amazing author duo of Piper and Rayne have something new when I first heard about their upcoming series, The Baileys, centred around nine siblings from a small town in Alaska called Lake Starlight...I was immediately intrigued! This is Piper Rayne's biggest planned series yet and the entire series sounds so fabulous!

You know how when you find a favorite author and all of a sudden you have run out of everything of theirs to read and you want more.

I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to try this new series by Piper Rayne. I didn't love the Blue Collar Brothers Series but when Dani from InkSlinger told me that this one was so much fun yet packed with emotion, I couldn't say no... and did you see that blurb? How could I resist?!

Lessons from a One-Night Stand was a fun, sexy, and entertaining standalone romantic comedy and intro to The Baileys series, and I really enjoyed it!

The storyline and characters were wonderful. The plot of Lessons from a One-Night Stand was very enjoyable, and I liked it a lot. Austin and Holly were extremely likable characters, and I really enjoyed reading their love story. There were a few aspects that I didn’t like as much as others, but overall I was happy with the conclusion to

The Bailey’s are like my new favorite family. They’re crazy and fun and loyal and I want to be a Bailey... preferably by finding myself an Austin because *SWOON* I’m addicted to that man!

This is a book (and series) that I’ll be revisiting time and time again!

GAH!! Lessons From a One-Night Stand was funny, delicious, emotional and so sexy. I enjoyed Holly and Austin so much. It had a fantastic family dynamic and a heat level that could melt the buttons off your kindle. I loved the small-town feel and can't wait for more of the Baileys!

This book was so MUCH FUN TO READ! I am thankful I received an ARC because I was dying to already read it just from the blurb!

When Austin realizes that his one night in the back of his jeep stand is walking right towards him, of all places but his work. Not to mention the fact that he just somewhat inappropriately introduced her to the school. You'd think a man would ask more than a single answer questions in one night stands? Nope they don't so note to self for the future!

I. Love. All. Things. Piper. Rayne.


I loved everything about Austin and Holly's "friendship" (I call it friendship because whole "We got this" and moving forward with all the hot sex!)

I loved that Austin was man enough to deal with his loss, man enough to take care of his huge family, man enough to give up his dream, man enough that Holly being his

Gah! This story was so sweet, fun, and I’m head over heels in love with the entire Bailey family!

Austin and Holly had my heart and I was cheering for them from the get-go. Holly is spunky, funny, outspoken, and full of passion about her job and those she cares about. Austin cares more about his family than anything else. He has made some big sacrifices. Then, his life is turned upside down when he realizes who his hot and steamy one-night stand is.

Austin Bailey is Lake Starlight, Alaska's beloved baseball coach and high school teacher, who very rarely finds time for a hook-up. And as luck would have it, after the hottest one-night stand in history, he finds his mystery woman a lot closer than he is... comfortable with. 

Holly Radcliffe came to Alaska to fill in as temporary principal at the local high school. Running into her one-night stand is definitely... inconvenient... but being featured in the local gossip website is by far,

Lessons from a One-Night Stand bored and annoy me at the same time. Although there were some great moments in the book, it wasn't enough to hold my attention. Instead of making me enjoy my reading time, it was slowly sucking the will to live out of me.
The family (no matter how diverse—in chosen careers—it was) felt unimaginative to me. To the point where I had to ask myself, "Really, do they need to be that obvious?" Not even one of them spoke to me in a way that would make my heart racing, know

I can't remember the last time a book has made me this frustrated throughout reading it. Don't get me wrong I loved Holly and Austin but their relationship or rather everything else but a relationship was nearly killing me. At the time I just wanted to throw up my arms and say screw it they will never get each other anyway, they will never end up in a relationship!

In true Piper Rayne style, this book is now my favorite. It seems they can't get better with their writing but they always do. This is a new series unrelated to all the rest of their books. And i loved it!
The Bailey's are a big deal in their small Alaskan hometown. The business that was started generations ago, made the town. Everyone was employed by the company in one way or another. And the company is still family run. The nine siblings had to make it work after their parents were killed in an

Austin Bailey is the older sibling of a family that is as good as an institution in a small town in Alaska where he’s also a teacher and baseball coach at the high school. A beloved member of the community, he wants to be seen as something other than a man who sacrificed a bright future for his family. When a new Principal arrives at the school, Austin will be put on the spotlight when he realizes that this is the same woman he had a one-night stand with the previous weekend.

This was so freaking good! I’m giving this 5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion.

Let me just start by saying that I’ve loved all the Piper Rayne books I’ve read so far, but this might be my favorite series yet! I loved the Bailey clan, and I can’t wait for a million (okay 8) more books to come from this family. I don’t want to spoil anything of importance, so I’ll just say Austin and Savannah are the oldest siblings, and these two have a lot on their shoulde
