Blog Tour + Review – Happy Hour (Charity Case, #3) by Piper Rayne


Happy Hour, an all-new hilarious enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling duo Piper Rayne, is NOW LIVE!


The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

Dating is hard.

Dating in your thirties is even harder.

Dating in Chicago is harder still.

I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I’m wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.

Truth is, there is one guy I can’t get my mind off of.

Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I’ve dreamed of running my hands through and I’m pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I’ve always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.

The problem? He’s the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…

His divorce attorney.

Happy Hour was a sexy, funny, and highly entertaining standalone romantic comedy in the Charity Case series, and I absolutely loved it! The storyline and characters were phenomenal, and I loved Piper Rayne’s writing style and sense of humor. I’ve truly enjoyed every book I’ve read from this amazing author duo, but Happy Hour has definitely been my favorite so far!

   The storyline was incredible. I honestly didn’t know what to fully expect with Roarke and Hannah’s story, but it was even better than I ever could’ve imagined. It was a sexy, sweet, and fun enemies-to-lovers romance, and had everything I wanted, needed, and so much more. I absolutely loved it from beginning to end, and couldn’t get enough. Piper Rayne completely knocked it out of the park with Happy Hour, and I truly couldn’t have loved it more.

   The characters were fantastic. Roarke and Hannah were even better than I hoped they’d be, and I completely fell head over heels in love with them. I loved their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. Roarke had many layers and was a lot different than I thought he’d be. He was kind, compassionate, and handsome, but a sweet/dirty talker too, which was a huge bonus. Hannah was strong and independent, but also kind and compassionate, and I felt an immediate connection with her. Roarke and Hannah were both stubborn at times, but they truly were a perfect match for each other, and I adored watching their love story unfold. Even though Happy Hour was solely written from Hannah’s point of view, I still felt a strong bond with Roarke. Don’t get me wrong, I would’ve loved Happy Hour even more from both of their perspectives, but Piper Ranye still won me over, and I absolutely loved the conclusion to Roarke and Hannah’s story.

   Happy Hour was a sexy, hilarious, and utterly addicting standalone romantic comedy, and I would HIGHLY recommend it and the rest of the Charity Case series! Piper Rayne did an outstanding job with this book, and it has been my favorite one from them to date. Happy Hour was excellent from start to finish, and I was ecstatic with the outcome to Roarke and Hannah’s story. Piper Rayne has done a fantastic job with the Charity Case series, and I can’t wait to read their next one, the Blue Collar Brothers series!

I press the numbers on my phone with shaky fingers, bringing the receiver up to my ear and release a deep breath.

He picks up after one ring. “I thought we were friends? Having your assistant call my assistant. Tsk. Tsk, Ms. Crowley.”

Aggravation fuses together every cell in my body until I become an impenetrable wall.

“First, we are not friends. Second, I would prefer to talk to you via our office phones.”

There’s a brief second of silence where he’s probably realizing I called him through my office line.

“Ahh… so now you have my number and I don’t have yours? That seems terribly unfair.”

“I didn’t realize you cared about fairness?” I lean back in my chair and cross my legs.

“You don’t know that much about me. It’s not like you know me intimately.” He lowers his voice on the last word and drags it out.

I roll my eyes, happy we’re not face-to-face so he can’t see the flush in my cheeks.

“You may have witnessed how I own the courtroom, but you know nothing about my private life. For instance, you don’t know if I like thrillers or comedies. Whether I prefer sorbet to ice cream or if I wear boxers or briefs.”

“I don’t need to know those things,” I say with frustration, shutting my eyes to rid the vision from my head of him in tight black boxer briefs—since that’s my preference.

“You want to know though.” A sexual innuendo pours out of his mouth and hits its mark between my thighs.

“There you go making assumptions about my wants.” I pick up my pen, shuffling through paperwork. Anything to distract me from this ache.

“I not only know what you want, I know what you need, Ms. Crowley.”

I smack my hand down on my desk. “Okay Rico Suave, let’s talk about this venue you have access to and keep the discussion of undergarments for another time.”

A beeping sound interrupts us.

“Hold all my calls please, Kristen.” Then nothing for a moment. “Sorry about that but you know how busy I am.”

“Yes, I’m sure destroying people’s lives takes a lot of time. So let’s stop the sexual innuendos and get down to business.”

“Let’s meet tonight. You frequent Torrio’s. I frequent Torrio’s. Let’s do something crazy and have a drink together.”

“I don’t need a drink at Torrio’s, Mr. Baldwin, I need a venue to house my gala. Now tell me your terms and I want the details of this venue you insist you can secure. I refuse to meet you until you supply me with that information.” I uncross my legs and tap my foot on the floor under me.

“So demanding. I like it.” I can hear him shuffling papers in the background. “I’ll have my assistant message your assistant with all the details of the venue. I’m sure it will be of your liking. Then we’ll meet tonight at Torrio’s. Seven sharp. Consider it our own personal happy hour.”

“I’m not committing to anything until I see the venue.”

“Then I’ll see you at seven.” The phone clicks and I stare at the receiver in my hand.

“Prick,” I murmur.

A knock sounds on my door.
