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.
“My God, woman.”
“Too much?” She crosses her arms over her chest. “I wanted something that made me feel sexy. It’s stupid and trashy, isn’t it?”
Uncrossing her arms and nodding towards her body I say, “That could never be considered stupid or trashy. I’m pretty sure it’s the best damn idea you’ve ever had.”
She laughs. “Really?”
I nod enthusiastically. “Uh huh, definitely. Best. Idea. Ever.”
****MY TAKE ON DEAL BREAKERS ****
Devyn is a practical beauty who has no time for boyfriends. As an orphan, she only has enough funds to get her through college on the four year plan. Riley is a lady's man who is also a rule breaker.
The story is an engaging one with Riley willing to stay in the friend zone and actually becomes the friend Devyn needs. He lays off his player ways and quits trying to bed her. Everything cruises along until graduation looms on the horizon. Devyn who was always the rule follower decides it is time to break a few.
Wow! I'd call it a New Adult romance, which is more realistic and sexier than a Young Adult novel. Both Devyn and Riley share the first person narrative, this sounds difficult, but it is easy to differentiate who is talking. Ms. Lee packed both characters with specific traits and speech patterns that won't have you mistaking one for the other.
This is a fun, fast read that sounds as if it could have been penned by college kids. ( I do mean that as a compliment.) Romance fans of any age should enjoy this sassy, spicy tale.

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!
