Author: Tara Leigh
Release Date: November 14, 2017
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press, SWERVE
Series: Billionaire Bosses #2
Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat… And everything to set her heart on fire.
Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted… And exactly what he needs.
With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?
“God help me, I wanted to grab hold of a sword and slay whatever dragons dared turn their fire on her.”
Deal Breaker was a quick and easy read for me and follows the story of Nash and Nixie. Nixie’s life is anything but perfect. Her luck is terrible and she is about to find out how bad it is. Just before things can really take a turn for the worst, she is rescued by a handsome stranger. This stranger though is anything but perfect. He’s rich, cocky and doesn’t take no for an answer. The last thing Nixie needs is to get involved with a man like him. However trying to stay away might prove to be harder than she originally thought. Will Nixie take a chance on this mysterious stranger or will her past catch up to her and ruin everything? You’ll just have to pick this book up to find out for yourself….
Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. This book pretty much hits the ground running and never looks book. The story-line is intriguing and fast-paced. I enjoyed the chemistry between our two main characters. Their lives are complicated and while is should make things extra messy, I think it only makes things interesting. My only complaint about this book was that is was a little too fast paced for my liking. I would have liked to have seen the characters really get to know one another and really work on their relationship. I feel like their issues got resolved a bit too quickly. And in the end, I just needed more.
Even though this book wasn’t a complete hit for me, I’m still glad I checked it out. I think this author has a ton of potential and I look forward to checking out more from her in the future.
