Promo& Review: Deal Breakers - Laura Lee

Deal Breakers
(Dealing With Love, #1)
by Laura Lee
Release Date: September 1, 2015

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.

Laura Lee is the author of the bestselling Karli Lane series as well as the upcoming Dealing With Love series. She is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America focusing on paranormal, urban fantasy, and contemporary romance.

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!

Another new adult book with the recurring friends to lovers theme that seems so popular lately. I found Deal Breakers to be both predictable and sweet in that Must Read way.

From the moment he first saw Devyn, Riley could not take his eyes off of her. He knew there was something special about this hot blond that he just had to get to the bottom off. Unfortunately for Riley, he was friend-lined from day one. Devyn wasn't looking for a relationship of any sort, romantic or physical. However, everyone could use a new friend. For four years Devyn and Riley were inseparable. Now, finally graduating and getting ready to take the world by storm, Devyn decides there is just one last thing she has to do... she needs to lose her virginity. And of course who better to do it than her man-whore of a best friend, Riley. One night was all it took to change everything.

I have to admit that once I began reading Deal Breakers I just could not seem to put it down. Although the story line was predictable, the characters were engaging and at times made me laugh. I only wish we had gotten a chance to get to know the characters a bit more than one chapter to represent each year they had known each other. That one thing aside, I was rooting for Riley when he finally got his head out of his you know what and decided to go after the one woman he never forgot.

I would definitely recommend this to others. I've never read this author before however, if this is any indication of this author's overall storytelling capabilities and writing, I look forward to other books by her.
