If you're a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new boss—the school principal—in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here's a few takeaways based on my experience...

Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.
Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.
Lesson Three: Find out why she's moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.
Lesson Four: Don't alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.
Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you're sent to the principal's office.
Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.
Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this one—it's the most important of them all.
Don't fall for your one-night stand.

Class dismissed.

I'm always incredibly excited whenever I see that the amazing author duo of Piper and Rayne have something new planned...so when I first heard about their upcoming series, The Baileys, centred around nine siblings from a small town in Alaska called Lake Starlight...I was immediately intrigued! This is Piper Rayne's biggest planned series yet and the entire series sounds so fabulous! Now that I've finished the first book, LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND, which was all about the oldest Bailey sibling, Austin, I'm even more excited because this book was amazing!!! When it comes to characters, relationships, and dynamics between characters of any kind, Piper and Rayne are absolute experts! They have a way of crafting a world through their characters and all of their relationships, whether they're romantic, familiar, and filial (just about the friendship), and they always make them extremely well-rounded and never fail to compel me to want to read more. In LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND they're at their best! We saw nine different Bailey siblings and we got to see just how different each and every one of them was. I'm so excited to get a story for each of them...and I adore that Piper Rayne decided to focus each story around a well-known romance trope! Austin and Holly's story was clearly centred around the whole mystery one-night stand backfiring trope...and let me tell you it was executed to rom-com perfection! Austin and Holly themselves were amazing! Austin was a total fox and he was such a wonderful, thoughtful, and generous person. He had me swooning more than once, and I definitely can't wait to see him pop up in the future books. And I loved Holly, too! I loved how strong she was, and I loved that despite her strength she also had a vulnerable side. Together they were even better and I loved their steamy chemistry and I adored how they complemented one another! I also loved seeing how they fit into the Lake Starlight community! There's a certain gossip blog that seems like it's going to be pretty central to this series that I think everyone is going to get a real kick out of...I know I did! I also loved the Bailey matriarch, Grandma Dori! ;D Overall, I absolutely loved LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND! It's an extremely strong start to Piper Rayne's biggest plan series yet, and it has me tremendously excited for what's in store for this series yet! Next up is Brooklyn's story: ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE...can't wait! I've always loved Piper and Rayne's character dynamics the best so the fact that we're going to get to see all of these characters for nine books has me thrilled! If you're a fan of rom-coms, especially if you love intricate companion series that are able to be read as standalones, then I think you'll love this, too...and I definitely think anyone who loves rom-coms in general will absolutely adore Austin and Holly! Highly, highly recommend this one...and I definitely suggest all rom-com fans check out Piper Rayne's backlist, too! ;) *I received an early copy of LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND in exchange for an honest review.

If ever a book situated in a small town in Alaska could capture your heart and soul! This one will do it!!! Small town charm with a huge family feel!!! Im at a loss of words as to how emotionally wonderful this story was! There were so many elements of this book that tugged at my heart and the Bailey family are such a formidable force of the town! Holly is a relieving Principal at the high school but what should happen when she goes on stage at her introduction than coming face to face with her One night stand! Oh my do things get very interesting indeed as time progresses, drama, gossip, family alliance and steamy moments all come into play!! I loved Austin’s heart and drive! He really was the leading or driving force of his family and when Holly is in his life, well lets just say you are in for one hell of a ride! I definitely think the authors have another outstanding series up their sleeves! Bring on the next book!!

This synopsis pulled me right in! I love one-night stands that turn into more, I love women in power positions, and I love a good laugh in my romance read, and this has it all! But if there is one thing I love in general, it's great families, and the Bailey's are just that. I was so excited to jump into the Bailey's world and learn all about them. This is Austin Bailey's story, and let me just tell you, he has a HEART OF GOLD! He's definitely book boyfriend material. Seriously, he's just fundamentally caring and everything you could want in a man. Holly is a kick-ass Harvard grad at the top of her game. She's the principal, and a fun female lead. She's got her own story, and it's interesting to see how it unfolds. Don't even get me started on the town of Starlight! Not only is there a great family, but also the small town love. Just wait until you hear about the gossip blog! Small town vibes + loving family + romcom = one happy reader! Do yourself a favor and read this book! I CANNOT wait for the rest of the Bailey's to find their matches. Luckily, we're getting two more books this year! Special thank you to Piper Rayne and Ink Slinger PR for the free eARC in exchange for an honest review!

Straight off the bat, I want to know if there are any employment opportunities in Lake Starlight, Alaska as I am ready to pack my bags and go. Having read a couple of other books by Piper Rayne I immediately one clicked this little gem as soon as it released. I absolutely fell hard and fast for Austin and the entire Bailey clan. What a fabulous family they are and I wouldn’t mind being a part of it to be honest. Austin is the head of the family, he gave up his dreams to coach College Baseball after the sudden death of his parents 9 years ago and came home to raise his siblings. What an honourable man he is, totally swoon worthy. Of course he is a man with needs and he has a hot and sizzling one night stand. Only issue is the woman he has it with Holly, turns out to be the new relieving principal at the high school where he teaches. Complications arise as their attraction continues to grow. Can they hide their involvement and keep it under the radar? Both Austin and Holly plan to leave Lake Starlight for greener pastures at the end of the school year. Can they keep it casual or will their hearts become entangled and heartbreak ensure? Piper Rayne is off to a flying start in this new series if Lessons From a One Night Stand is anything to go by. There is nothing that I did not love about this book. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading this dynamic due, then do yourself a favour and check them out.

Where can I find a better one night stand romance? I can't!!! Piper Rayne have done an amazing job writing Lessons from a One-Night Stand. I adored Austin. He kept me smiling and swooning all over the place. I even had a few sleepless nights loving on this story hard! Holly is written to perfection as our heroine. I adore her personality and authority. Piper Rayne captures life with adolescents right down to the T! The Baileys have become near and dear to my heart. I love this bunch of siblings as they all have their own quirk. I am not sure how Austin can be surpassed, but I cannot wait to see what else awaits for us in this series. I am already hooked. The many many one-night stands turned out quite hot!! I loved everything about this book and I promise you will too!

Be still my heart! Lessons from a One-Night Stand is my favorite book by Piper Rayne so far. This story was filled with laughter, romance, family drama and enough steam to cook a lobster! I can't wait for more books in The Baileys series, as this is one remarkable family (and town) that you'll want to revisit again and again.

Awesome brand new series starting out. Lessons From A One Night Stand is the first in a brand new nine part series by Piper Rayne. Yes, you read that correct. We’re getting nine new books instead of the usual three, and from this first one, it’s going to be a cracker of a series. The Bailey’s, which is the name of the family and the series, btw, are a large family of siblings. There’s nine of them and each are going to get their own juicy, sexy piece of the Piper Rayne storytelling pie. We’ve moved location further north, yet again, with this book and now it’s the turn of Lake Starlight, Alaska to shine its beauty on us. It’s no secret that I love all thinks Piper Rayne related, and for the last two years, this dynamic duo have never failed to wow me, ever since they released their debut co-written ‘Charmed By The Bartender’ in 2017. This new series is no exception, other than to say that maybe, it’s even better. I loved the setting, loved the characters, and getting to know them all. This is a very close-knit family but they have had some heartbreak in the past that has made them who they are today. There’s a seriousness about the storyline as well as the expected humor, and I did find myself laughing, but also close to tears at times. The whole book was well written, the pace was perfect and the main characters brought it all together, but some parts were so beautiful and wonderfully played out on the page, I just sighed with pleasure. This book is set mainly in a high school as the leads are a teacher and a principal, but even here in this setting, Piper has planted seeds for more non-Bailey’s related stories to grow from this nine-parter, or I think so anyway!!! I’m already looking forward to the next installment in six weeks, when it hits our kindles.

The Baileys. Oh mylanta!! If this story is the beginning to this amazing family, I cannot wait for the next one or the next! Oh how I wish that Lake Starlight was a real town and it's residents were real.  And the "Buzz Wheel"! Oh that's a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Austin Bailey is the unorthodox patriarch of the Bailey clan.  He has to grow up way before his time and feels like he never had a chance to fulfill his dreams. Holly Radcliffe finds herself in Lake Starlight. She is the mysterious newcomer to the town.  What secrets does she hold?  Read this story! From the title you can tell that Austin & Holly's chemistry is off the charts! And a one night stand can turn into so much more. I floved the push and pull of their relationship.  It made me want to smack them upside the head and then hug the hell outta them! This is Austin and Holly's story but it is so much more!  This is the fantastical introduction to the whole Bailey clan and the lovely town of Lake Starlight!  I think this is going to be the best series from Piper Rayne to date, I can say that honestly because I have read everything that this dynamic duo has written! Get your hands on this!  Get submerged in the world of Lake Starlight and the Baileys....

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Piper Rayne has done it again! They've completely sucked me into their new series (set in Alaska!) and the Bailey family is going to be such a fun one to spend time with over the next several books! Austin Bailey is the eldest of the Bailey siblings. When the inexplicable happened, Austin did what anyone would do and came home to Lake Starlight to help his family. He's been the baseball coach and a teacher at the high school for the past nine years, but with the dynamics changing within the family, he's got his heart set on living out his dream of being a college baseball coach. The catch there, is in order to do that, he has to head to the lower 48. Holly Radcliffe needed a change of scenery, but not for the reasons or in the location that her mother thought. She's found herself moving to Alaska from Florida and filling in for the high school principal that has just gone on maternity leave. While she's really in search of a missing piece of herself, truth be told she's still not certain she really wants to find it. When Austin meets the new interim principal, little does he know he has already met her...just under very different circumstances. In a town where everyone knows everyone AND knows everyone's business, will these two be able to navigate not only the growing feelings between them, but also the gossip of Lake Starlight and the fact that both of them have "plans" for what is to come next in their lives? I really enjoyed both Austin and Holly. They were great together, but they were also just really great people all by themselves. There were moments that made me laugh, made me hurt, made me angry and made me hope. This was a fantastic start to this new series and I simply can't wait to see what is in store for the Bailey siblings!

I have been with this amazing duo since their very first book released and each time I read one they get better and better. Lessons from a One-Night Stand the first book in their new series The Bailey's enamored me from the beginning, so much so I had it read in less than a day. Austin and Holly were fun, sexy and swoon-worthy. Watching their relationship build was hot, hot, hot! How can you go wrong with a sexy Baseball Coach/Teacher and the school Principal...... you can't and it definitely makes for some steamy compromising situations. I absolutely fell in love with this family, the love and support they have for each other will pull you and have you begging for more. I am so anxious for each siblings story and how it unfolds, plus how could you go wrong with the juicy gossip from Lake Starlight Buzz Wheel! If you're ready for Austin and Holly plus the rest of the Bailey Clan grab this read now!
