4 Stars!

This was a really cute, easy read! I was able to finish it in about a day and a half. I really liked Riley. He was cute and had a great personality. I loved how sweet he was with Devyn. I loved the part where they almost kissed for the first time. I was really rooting for them! Their friendship was great as well. Right from the beginning, Devyn made it clear to Rylie that all she was looking for was a friend. Of course, Rylie had no problem being friends with her in hopes that she would change her mind. Right before graduating from college, Devyn asked Rylie to rid her of her V-card. After they are together, they head off in different directions to begin their new jobs. Even though it has been years, Rylie can't get Devyn out of his mind. He can't forget the night they spent together and is having a difficult time moving on. He wants her and will do anything to make her his.

Devyn has finally been able to move on with her life. She has a boyfriend, a best friend, and is working a job that she has always wanted. The last thing she expected, was running into Rylie when she meets up with her brother and friends. Once they see each other, their connection is instant. As if they haven't been apart for the last 5 years. The chemistry they have is stronger than it has ever been. The problem? Rylie never expected that Devyn would have a boyfriend that he would have to compete with! Which for me, was the best part. I loved it!

This was a great story! I really liked the characters. I loved Rylie and Devyn together, but I will say that I am interested to see if Brody will join the magic pussy club! HAHA! From the way it ends...I'm thinking he might be on his way! I would also like to read more about Drew. We all know there's nothing wrong with a hot firefighter story! So until then, I will be looking forward to reading the upcoming books in this series! If your looking for a sweet, easy read and you don't mind some steamy scenes...Deal Breakers is it!

Laura Lee is the author of the bestselling Karli Lane series as well as the upcoming Dealing With Love series. She is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America focusing on paranormal, urban fantasy, and contemporary romance.

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!
