What’s a girl to do after being ditched at the altar by text message? That’s right. Text. Message.
How does she pick up the pieces and move on? I’m no Dear Abby but here’s a little free advice…
Advice #1 – First, purge your apartment of all things him—by tossing his belongings off the balcony.
Advice #2 – Do not, I repeat do not, throw anything out into the hallway because you’ll injure your hot new neighbor.
Advice #3 – When said neighbor brings over Chinese Food do not let him stay and keep you company. It’s awkward when you realize he’s your boss.
Advice #4 – Accept his offer to help you with your side business but think twice before using a date to his sister’s wedding as collateral.
Advice #5 – Investigate who your mystery neighbor really is. Don’t trust his word even if he’s the world’s best kisser.
If you listen to nothing else, pay attention to that last one. It’s the most important and will save you a lot of heartache.

Advice from a Jilted Bride is book 2 in The Bailey’s series and it did not disappoint; I cleared my schedule because I knew that once I started reading, I wouldn’t surface until I was done.
Brooklyn was left at the altar, scorned and wanting to leave it all behind her she starts throwing her ex’s belongings out of the apartment they shared. Wyatt was not impressed, continuously trying to prove his worth to his father hoping that he holds up his end of the bargain which means spending 6 months in the small-town Lake Starlight. What he did not expect was the book throwing, jilted bride bringing down his walls and making him change his outlook; or has she?
Brooklyn and Wyatt grow so much throughout this book I fell in love with both of them from the beginning. Piper Rayne have paved the way for an amazing series dishing out drama left, right and centre. Dropping a large bomb in my lap for book 3 not knowing if it will be about Denver or Rome is going to keep me on the edge of my seat until I have it in my hands.
I personally loved this book and I have pencilled in Birth of a Baby Daddy; Count down is on till May!
Writing Style: 5/5
“Slow burn, 5 stars”
First off, Piper and Rayne warned us in advance that Advice from a Jilted Bride was their longest to date story. Well let me just say that they can keep on giving us long stories if this is what happens. I absolutely adored Advice from a Jilted Bride. The slow burn between Wyatt and Brooklyn is off the charts. It doesn’t move too fast or too slow, just the perfect speed. This is the second book in the Bailey’s series and each book has gotten better and better. So much so I’m afraid of how much I will love the books to come. And the lead in to the next book? Freaking perfection. *sigh*
Brooklyn was clearly left at the altar. Her ex is the kind of guy we all hate. What she didn’t expect was to be stuck in an apartment she can’t really afford or have an incredibly good-looking neighbor. But here she is living the life. What starts out as a friendship between her and Wyatt slowly shapes into something else. The question is will Brooklyn be willing to take a chance on love again?
Wyatt has always known who he was and where he stands, especially when it comes to relationships. He doesn’t plan to marry or really have a life outside of work. Then he gets sent to Alaska as a test before the job he really wants. What he didn’t expect was Brooklyn. She is everything he is not. She makes him want to be a better man, the question is will he follow through?
Wyatt fit in with the rest of the Bailey clan flawlessly from the very start. The Bailey clan is something else entirely. They are family goals and I can’t help but want to demand to have them all now, screw waiting. But good things come to those who wait, so I will wait. But in the mean time I will just continue reading Lessons from a One-night Stand and Advice from a Jilted Bride over and over again.
Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have "Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle" (okay...you caught us, that's our tagline). A little about us... We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
