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 his 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.

    I thought it was very good. Proud of author to keep sex scenes non-nauseating.

    Another 5 star! I’m not usually one to stay interested in reading a series, but each book gets better and better! I’m hooked and wanting more Baileys! Cleo’s story took a twist that I sure didn’t see coming. Can’t wait to see what happens with Phoenix!

    One Day Can’t Put Down 5 Star Read! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read Denver Bailey has won me heart and soul! There is so much more to this Bailey twin than meets the eye! You are going to completely fall for him and then you have to deal with Cloe... but with the unexpected way these two seem to need each other you may just swoon and let her have him! I had lots of tears in this story but in the best way possible. 5 Beautiful Bailey Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ *Don’t worry... you get Grandma Dori too!
  • Love the Baileys

    I so love this family and the stories that come from the dynamic duo of Piper Rayne. This is Denver and Cleo's story... When I was reading, especially when Grandma Dori was talking about Denver in his childhood, I was thinking of the old Bugs Bunny cartoon when the abominable snowman has Bugs in his grasp, stroking him and saying "I will call him George, and I will love him and pet him and squeeze him..." Denver is slow to love but when he does, whoo wee, he loves hard and Cleo loves him right back. I had a special place in my heart for Denver, he was truly a self-centered playboy but I knew when the right person came alone it would change his world. As with all of the Baileys stories, you get a bit of a twist and hint of mystery in the story which just makes it all the more of a phenomenal read. I also love the fact that you get to see what the rest of the Baileys are up to, it's like a little family reunion every time you open a new story in this series.  I also enjoy the lead-ups to future stories!! I can't wait to read Phoenix's story next, it's gonna be amazing, just like the other stories in this series!
