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. 

            **** My Review ****

Deal Breakers is a really sweet friends-to-lovers romance that also includes second opportunity and secret baby elements. Everything is so cute, funny and charming, without too much drama or angst, which I personally would like more.

One look at her, and pure desire overwhelms him, the feelings are there, the lust ignites…but they somehow end up in the friends zone, which with the passing of time becomes too familiar, too comfortable and too much needed in order to be jeopardized. But one night, one touch…all limits and rules are forgotten… One irresistible offer, when all the brakes give way, when passion pulls everything  in its whirlpool,all  reason is lost and the feelings culminate. One night, that is the deal. But is it enough? Is this the end?

The storyline was truly solid, sometimes felt a bit rushed, like something was missing, most likely and a deeper emotional connection between the main characters. Disregarding that, the main as well as the secondary characters were nicely portrayed, maybe a more solid development would make the book more appealing. As I said it I really missed more angst and more emotions, but the hotness level of the book will definitely not disappoint anyone, the steamy sessions between these two will most definitely make you blush.

It could be also said that it was little predictable, but in a very comforting way. Simply while reading you do not experience a storm of emotions, but a gentle relaxation that overwhelms you. A cliché- maybe, but interesting enough to keep your attention to the very end.

Definitely, short and sweet, easy to read and with lots of swoony and funny elements, this book is a great choice for a lazy, relaxing read.
