Amy's 3.5 star ARC Review of Real Deal (Single Dads Club) by Piper Rayne

Red Flags…

Too loud.
Too clingy.
Too much make-up. 

I could go on and on. The other guys in the Single Dad’s Club would say I’m obsessed with finding them. But none of their kid’s mothers call a maximum-security prison home either, so their opinions mean shit.

Caterina Santora has her own list of red flags…

She’s too young.
She’s my client’s daughter.
She’s my five-year old’s camp counselor.

Even after repeating this mantra to myself every morning on the way to Lily’s summer camp, guess what happens the moment I see Cat? Yeah, that mantra turns into ride me, doggie style and reverse cowgirl. 

Every. Damn. Time.

The fact that she doesn’t remember me from six years before grates on me until I don’t have it in me to leave her alone any longer. I have to have her. But our lives are opposites in every way. In no way compatible.

When we’re together all the complications fade away and I have to keep reminding myself, even if I can have her— I can’t keep her.

Marcus is a single dad raising a daughter as best as he can. Lily is adventurous and spunky which unfortunately she gets from her mother. Marcus is all business and his daughter comes first. You figure a single dad will swoon you and make you want to find one for yourself but this character was lacking at times. I found the secondary characters more interesting -- Garrett. Very interesting to say the least. Dane got on my nerves and I wanted to slap the pages every time he came into the picture. 

Cat threw herself at Marcus when she was just 18. He embarrassed her and she has never forgotten it. Now they are face to face at the single parent camp for kids where she will be teaching art. Best thing to do -- act like you don't remember the man. 

The storyline is pretty as you figure -- not a lot of depth but I did keep turning the pages due to Garrett and another character name Ava and also Charlie. Things are happening there and these girls and that man kept my peaked.

This isn't a bad story I just wasn't over the top in love. However I will keep reading the series to see where the other characters take us. Thank you for the ARC
