Deal breakers is a cute friends to lovers romance. I really liked it, but I would have liked more character & relationship development. Riley is fun, sweet, but a total player! He is an only child and with his good looks and charm things come easy to him. Devyn is a good girl who always follows the rules. Both her parents are dead and she only has her brother Drew. Devyn is very down to earth and doesn't know how good looking she is. Riley and Devyn together are smokin' hot. They have a cute friendship that makes them a cute couple but I hated them being apart for 5 years. I really wished this book would have went a little deeper. I feel like I didn't really get to know who Riley and Devyn are beside the player and good girl tom boy. And while their relationship was cute it was superficial. I don't feel like I got to see them fall in love or hurt over their time apart and secrets. There are some really sweet moments in this book and some very funny ones as well. The ending was swoon worthy! Deal Breakers is a cute, quick read! *ARC Kindly Provided By Netgalley In Exchange For An Honest Review* Check out my blog for my full review on this book at

Favorite Quotes: “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!

This is one of those books that I consider “cute”. It was quick, easy to read, flowed easily and had a solid storyline. You could feel the chemistry between Devyn and Riley. I was able to finish in less than a day. Devyn and Riley met in college. While Riley was definitely interested in more, Devyn did not want a boyfriend, she just wanted a friend. So they agreed to just be friends. Throughout, their four years of college, although they secretly had feelings for each other, they remained good friends. Just as they were about to graduate, Devyn asked Riley to take her v-card. Let’s just say Riley made it memorable for her; in more ways than one. Out of this encounter, came a son. A son Riley never knew about. Not able to get Riley out of his head for five years, he decides to get a job to be closer to her. As luck would have it, they lived in the same town. When he first found out he had a son, of course he was angry. But they both handled in a mature, responsible way. They decided the past was the past and what was more important was their son Nate. Nate was a hoot. All I will say is little ears pick up a lot. The only thing I was say that needed work was the ending. While it wasn’t necessarily rushed, it was not that satisfying. I think if we had a look more into their future that would have been better. If you are looking for a book without a lot of inner turmoil, drama and a pretty clean story then this is for you. This is the first time I have read book by this author. I would read others. Looking forward to maybe Brody and Rainey’s story next?

Sweet romance, funny, with a lot of heartbreak and lovely characters. Although it was a good read, it didn't completely filled my measures. It was fast paced and it missed what I like to call 'The Sparkle'. This is one of those books that I have a hard time reviewing because it took me a while to warm up to it. But it still goes home with a rounded up four star, because I love a good laugh, and this book had plenty of it.

Deal Breakers by Laura Lee broke several of my “not to include in a romance ever” list: #1. A hero who is not likeable through most of the story. 1a.) He parades his revolving door of girls he uses, without remorse, right under the nose of the heroine, who he supposedly wants to be with/cares about. 2a.) After their first time together, she tells him she loves him. He then immediately treats her like she has just become infected with the black plague. Apparently, he thinks you can catch it over the phone, because he won’t even take her phone calls/texts. Even years later. Eventually, after five years, he redeems himself by going after his girl. That, my book-loving friends, gets me every time. Love it when the hero is determined to win back the girl, no matter what. Yes, I found myself forgiving him, even though I really didn’t want to. #2 Too much completely, unnecessary crass language. I swear (no pun intended) at times the secondary characters felt like they were on loan from a motorcycle club romance. It didn’t add to the story. Certainly didn’t coincide with the innocent looking book cover. In fact, it also made the writing seem so immature I was surprised this was not a debut author. No, it wasn’t overly done, but it simply should not have been there to begin with. #3 Never try to make it seem funny/cute when a toddler uses crass language, especially repeatedly. That just never works out well. What the author did right was transform a stupid, naïve heroine into a strong, capable single mother. Yes, I also liked how protective Drew was of her, even though he was one of the instigators of the bad language just mentioned. Also, liked the heroine’s other boyfriend, who stepped up to the plate for two whole years, when said hero was nowhere to be found. He felt like the unsung hero to me. Hope he gets his HEA one day. Overall, my prediction is this book will appeal only to a very young adult audience. More mature, experienced romance readers, who sometimes delve into this genre, will likely find themselves disappointed. For example, I found the couple’s first time together too detailed, drawn out, and, frankly, poorly written. Deal Breakers did not stand out as a particularly good romantic read for this NetGalley reviewer. I struggle whether to give it a below average or just average rating. Title: Deal Breakers, Series: Dealing With Love (Book 1), Author: Laura Lee, Pages: 192, HEA, very graphic/steamy scenes, crass language, stand-alone, geared to young adult only.
