Release Blitz: Demise of a Self-Centered Playboy Piper Rayne

You might be wondering how you’ll know when your playboy ways are coming to an end. For some it might be an unexpected pregnancy (ahem… you know who), for others it might be finally landing the one woman you’ve always wanted (cough… I won’t mention any names). For me, it was the death of my mentor and the subsequent reading of their will.

The signs were there, they always are. But I didn’t notice them until it was too late, and my demise was complete.

Demise Sign #1– You find yourself thrust into the land of responsibility and you don’t immediately hightail it out of town.

Demise Sign #2– Despite being stuck with the world’s biggest Jekyll & Hyde, some sadistic part of you actually enjoys spending time with her.

Demise Sign #3– Your family suddenly stops wanting to weigh in on every decision in your life.

Demise Sign #4– Somehow you end up being the voice of reason in your tumultuous partnership.

Demise Sign #5 –You start thinking of other people before yourself.

Demise Sign #6– You agree to put yourself in the middle of an Alaskan reality TV show that has both of you sleeping in the same tent. 

Demise Complete.

Review by Jen Skewes

I love the Bailey series.  It was this series that introduced me to this fantastic writing duo.  With each book I fall more in love with the entire Bailey clan and become a bigger fan of Piper Rayne. It’s the humor and with that I love, combined with the emotions that they make me feel.  Demise of a Self-Centered Playboy has the banter and funny moments that I love but this is Denver’s story, and we see that there is more to him that you think. We get to go a little deeper into the heart and soul of this playboy.  

Denver, just like the rest of the Bailey men is hot and sexy but also a really good guy, despite his playboy ways.  Yes, he’s a no strings attached kind of guy but has never led women to believe otherwise.  He has no plans of falling in love or being in a relationship.  Until he is forced to work with the one woman that manages to get under his skin. 

When Cleo’s father dies, she finds herself in the small Alaskan town, Lake Starlight, listening to the reading of his will only to find out that her father left his company to her and Denver Bailey, the guy who pushes her buttons and the last person in the world that she wants to work with.  Cleo grew up in Dallas and while she did visit her dad and she loved him; she didn’t have the best relationship with him.  Denver on the other hand was very close to him, he was his mentor and a father figure after he lost his dad.  They seem like an unlikely pair to tale of the business, but Chip had his reasons for leaving int to the both of them. They may not agree, or like each other for that matter but they can agree that selling the company or buying the other one out is out of the question.  They agree to make it work and revive the company they just inherited.  Wil this bring them closer together or drive them farther apart?

Denver is in a way the troublemaker of the family, the one who refuses to settle down and tends to use humor to avoid his feelings.  Losing chip hit him hard.  He lost his parents at a young age and now he lost his mentor.  What I loved about Denver’s story is that we get to see another side to him,  softer side it you will.  He is caring and pays attention and while he wasn’t Cleo’s biggest fan, that soft side had a tendency to come out around her.  She was going through her own issues.  Losing a father that she wasn’t even sure how he felt about her.  She had no idea where she fit in, both in Lake Starlight, her father’s business and in Denver’s life.  They both had a sarcastic way about them, and Cleo was the perfect match for Denver.  She knew how to handle him and give it right back.  The banter between the two of them made me smile but it was the moments where they opened up to each other, where Denver really showed that he cared, that got me.  Those moments were everything.  

Piper Rayne has done it again.  I love how the other family members are weaved into each other’s story, because aside from the romance side to this series it is also about love, family and friendship.  I love how they welcome Cleo with open arms.  While reading I always feel like I am submerged in their world and a part of the Bailey family.  I cannot wait for the next one.
