Book Review: Deal Breakers by Laura Lee 4


Deal Breakers

by Laura Lee






How were they supposed to know that one night would change everything?

Devyn has life all mapped out. She just needs to accomplish one more thing before graduating college and becoming a full-fledged adult—lose her virginity. And who better to assist her than her best friend, Riley?

Riley is the self-proclaimed king of fling. His college years have been filled with meaningless hookups until the one night that ruined him for all other women. The one night he spends with his best friend, Devyn. Right before he screws it all up.

Balls to the wall, baby!

Now five years later, Riley is determined to atone for his mistakes and prove that he can be the man that Devyn deserves. Little does he know that Devyn’s been keeping a secret from him all these years. A big secret. Now he has to figure out how to win back the only girl he’s ever loved while navigating the pitfalls of her unexpected revelation.

Deal Breakers is filled with lots of laughs, a sexy romance, and an overflowing swear jar.

Favorite Quotes:


‘The Magic Pussy,’ he repeats. ‘Pussy that is so good you can never get enough and it’s impossible to forget. An Urban Legend in my opinion, but you sure do have all the pathetic signs.’”


Uncle Drew, don’t you mean you’re going to make a chocolate sundae for the sewer monster?”


‘Kind?’ I sneer. ‘Wow, that’s not the word I’d want my woman to use when describing me… Kind is boring. Kind is safe. Kind is NOT passion. Fireworks. Kind does not get you off. Kind is the word I’d use to describe my accountant.’ Her eyes widen with that last word. ‘Oh my God, he’s an accountant?’”


Unca’ Drew bought me some big boy underpants but they made my wiener feel funny so Momma said to go put on my regular underpants but I couldn’t find ’em so now I’m not wearing any underpants! Unca’ Drew says that when you run out of underpants on laundry day, you just have to go free-balling.”


Were you praying in your sleep Momma?… Because you kept saying God’s name. Christopher says that his mommy and daddy always make funny noises and say God’s name a lot when they’re sleeping. He said that’s because they’re praying in their sleep.”


My Review:

My first Laura Lee read and I certainly picked a good one, thanks to NetGallery. I was totally entertained from beginning to end by this fun and vibrant story, that still managed to bring hits of steamy sensuality and considerable emotional heft. I enjoyed the humor and repartee, as well as the inner musing throughout this dual POV. The plot was interesting and relevant, and I enjoyed each and every character. The writing was crisp, easy to follow, and pleasantly well paced. A perfect way to spend an afternoon. More please!

Laura’s passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story. She won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!

Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances, especially those involving vampires or cowboys!
