Deal Breakers (Dealing With Love Book 1) by Laura Lee ~ My Review


What happens when your best friend accidentally becomes your baby daddy?  Find out in this hot and hilarious second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author, Laura Lee.


What respectable guy could say no to that? Yeah, she was my best friend. But she was also the hottest chick I’d ever known. I thought it would be simple. I thought we’d have a good time, then pretend like it never happened. 

It turns out, I was an idiot. 

Now, she wants nothing to do with me, but I’m determined. I’ve spent the last five years without her and I refuse to waste another day. I have a solid plan. All of my figurative ducks are in a row. I’m going balls to the wall, and I’m not stopping until I win back the only girl I’ve ever loved. 

Too bad for me, Devyn Summers was sitting on a secret that nothing could’ve prepared me for. 

Deal Breakers is a best friends-to-lovers / second chance / single mom romance filled with lots of laughs, hot sexy times, and an overflowing swear jar. It’s the first installment in the Dealing With Love series, but each one can be read as a standalone. 

I fell in love with Laura Lee’s writing when I found the Windsor Academy series and I fell even more in love with her words while reading Deal Breakers. There is a vast difference between bully romance and the sweet heartfelt story in the second-chance, friends to lovers story in Deal Breakers yet Laura Lee does a fantastic job of weaving together stories that grab your attention and steal your heart.

Devyn and Riley had an adorable meet cute then they were quickly placed in “the friend zone”. The chemistry between Devyn and Riley was clear the moment they met and with each glimpse of their friendship over the years it continuously grew stronger. They made a deal, one night and that one night made the chemistry explode between them.

I adored Devyn and Riley from the very beginning. The easy way they became friends and the banter they shared made me giggle. Riley was sweet but he also had some alpha tendencies that mostly showed when he finally realized he was up to the challenge of a second-chance with Devyn.

I’m was already looking forward to reading more of this series since many of the secondary characters enhanced my enjoyment of Deal Breakers then I read the sneak peek of Deal Takers that made me laugh out loud and made me want to start it right now.
