REVIEW : Demise of a Self-Centered Playboy by 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.

Yeah, I caught something. It’s called the feels.

my review

Oh Denver Bailey, how the playboy has fallen. I LOVE the Baileys. I think I fall more and more in love with this family with each siblings book, but Denver may just be my favorite. I devoured this story and didn’t want it to end.

Denver inherits his mentors, Chip Dawson, business when he passes. The downside? He has to split the business with Chip’s daughter, Cleo Dawson, a city girl that is pretty clueless when it comes to outdoor adventures in Alaska.

I loved Denver and Cleo. I loved their relationship, it was a very enemies to friends to lovers vibe. Denver has a reputation in town as a playboy, however, there is a reason for it and the man also has a super sweet, romantic side. These two had chemistry and I couldn’t get enough of it. I loved that the entire Bailey clan welcomed Cleo with open arms and made her feel instantly welcome into their family.

This is another MUST READ book in The Baileys series and I can be read as a standalone, however, reading the previous books in the series is 1000% worth it! I can’t wait to see what is in store for the Baileys in Phoenix’s book!
