The Cover: I love this cover so much! I think covers that have couples on them are so much fun and I love to try and catch the character’s personalities on them from the book. A+

Description: The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer.
Burned the T-shirt.
I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.
Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.
Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.
In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.
You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate éclair and my willpower is fading fast.
The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…
He was the best man at my wedding.
Overall thoughts: One of my goals for book blogging this year was to read and promote authors that I haven’t read before. I read the synopsis for Piper Rayne’s Manic Monday, was immediately intrigued and signed up to review it. I am SO glad I did! This was my first Piper Rayne book and honestly I am very impressed. These two authors team up well write and they certainly know how to write a funny, romantic, heartfelt story.
Victoria just came back home to Chicago after a bitter divorce with her young daughter. Taking care of her ill mother, seven year old and spirited daughter and starting a new job is a lot, so she definitely doesn’t need a man or any sort of romance in her life. No way Jose! However a chance meeting from the past could change everything for Victoria, but there are a few problems. Sure Reed is gorgeous, hard working, funny and successful but Victoria definitely doesn’t want to be with a lawyer like her ex. There’s also the issue of how Reed was the best man at her and ex husband’s wedding years ago too.
Nevertheless Reed is persistent to try and date Victoria, much to her objections. She believes there are too many check marks in the con column of this budding relationship and isn’t too keen on starting over with someone, being still bitter about her divorce. But above everything, Reed might be exactly what she needs to being happy again. Can you be happy after a divorce with several responsibilities in the way? You’ll have to read Manic Monday to find out!
Reed and Victoria are probably going to be one of my top couples of 2018. Victoria is a hardworking, resilient, strong willed, funny mother who just wants to build a good life for her and her mother and daughter. She’s completely focused on them and creating a future for them which is great but it made me a bit sad that she was okay for that. Being successful, a good mom and daughter are great, but everyone deserves their own happiness. Fictional or not! That is where Reed comes in; he is such a GREAT leading guy! Oh my goodness, I seriously have heart eyes as I’m typing this right now! I adore him! He’s funny, kind, persistent (in a very good way!), hardworking, caring, smart, sexy! He really is a good match for Victoria and I love their banter between each other and their chemistry just sizzled right off the page as I read their wonderful story!
I loved Manic Monday so much! It will be one of my top reads of 2018 and I will certainly be on the lookout for future Piper Rayne releases!
