Demise of a Self-Centered Playboy: The Baileys Series Book 5


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 his 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.

My Review: 4 stars

Denver Bailey. The Playboy. The brother who will never settle down.

Cleo Dawson. The mentors daughter. The rival of Denver Bailey.

When Cleo’s dad passes away, he leaves his business, Lifetime Adventures, to both Cleo and Denver. Rivals. People who hate each other. Now Cleo and Denver have choices to make.

Do they sell that the business? Do they buy the other out? Or do they try and make it work to honor her father?

As they begin to make decision, to start to work together, feeling start to get involved. But are those real feelings or are those feeling just because they are working together everyday?

But everything will change when Cleo finds out some information that changes her life. But can Denver help her with these changes? Or will he back down and not fight for her?

Denver and Cleo are a great enemies to lovers book. People who are made to work together and realize maybe they don’t have to hate each other.

I love the Bailey family. Only 4 more books to go.
