Summary

“I’m a virgin. And you need to relieve me of that.” 

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 filled with lots of laughs, a sexy romance, and an overflowing swear jar. It's the first installment in the Dealing With Love series, but each one can be listened to as a stand-alone.

A lovely romance!

With a lovely romance at its heart, Deal Breakers is an audio which will make you smile and leave you content. It is well narrated by Reagan West, who brings emotion, warmth and character to her telling of this story. She is able to convincingly portray both Riley and Devyn showing a range to her voice talent. 💖💖💖💖💖

OH WOW....AMAZING!!!

I love this slow burn story, riley and devyn make my heart ache, I wanted them so much to be together, they were perfect. The passion, the intensity hooked me from the very first page It was sexy and sweet and everything in between. Just goes to prove that no matter where life takes you, love always prevails Cant wait for book two! Reagan west was a brilliant narrator, I didnt read the book first so relied on her to make the story come to life for me, for me to be able to feel all the hurt, love , angst and passion and she did that and much more.

Sweet, sexy second chance romance

I really enjoyed this friends to lovers, second chance romance. Ok, there were no real surprises as to where the story went, but it was humorous, well written and easy to listen to. Devyn and Riley both made their share of mistakes, which lead to heartbreak and a long seperation, but a connection like theirs could never be ignored forever. I listened to the audio version and the narrator was very good. Deal Breakers made me laugh and smile which was exactly what I was hoping for. It had some sexy, steamy times and I have to say, I wish my first time had had so much effort put into it!! I'm looking forward to reading/listening to more from this author.

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 A Heartfelt RomCom!

This is a great second chance romance, it is well written with interesting storylines that grabbed my attention right from the start and held it straight to the end. The characters are likable and easy to relate to. Devyn Summers and Riley McIntrye are freshman in the University of Oregon, Devyn catches Riley’s eye and he is determined to have her. I loved the way he manipulated their first meet. The two hit is off but Riley is not looking to date or get romantically involved. So they become really good friends throughout college. Just before graduation Devyn decides she wants to lose her virginity and she ask Riley to be the one. I loved how that played out, Riley the real romantic, who knew. Devyn was setting off to start an internship and Riley was heading east to Grad school, so their romantic interlude would not change things right? Wrong!! Devyn realized she has deep feelings for Riley but Riley freaks out and runs. They go off and live their lives, the story fast forwards to when Riley realizes he made a huge mistake not telling Devyn how he really feels, he is determined to win her back. So he moves back west with a plan. I loved how everything plays out in this book, it is plotted out nicely and there is never a dull moment. There is plenty of drama, some great humor and laughs, some heartfelt moments and some hot romance. There are some great secondary characters in this book too and I am looking forward to their stories as well. Laura Lee, thank you for this fantastic story, the laughs and the emotional rollercoaster ride. Reagan West is a talented narrator and voice artist. She does an awesome job portraying the characters and bringing them to life, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart she puts into her work as she captures the characters emotions and projects them into her performance. She landed all the humor perfectly too, never missing a beat. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

I LOVED this book!!

I loved everything about this book and the narration made it an even greater experience than reading it would have. Both of the characters were so likeable and their friendship and bond was amazing. I have no idea how a female narrator manages to make a male's voice sexy, but Reagan West did it. This was so great and I'm thrilled to see it's only the first in a series. I can't wait to read more from Laura Lee. This was my kind of book! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Devyn and Riley!

Devyn and Riley meet their freshman year in college and are instant best friends. Now senior year comes, Devyn asks Riley to take her virginity. And their story really begins. Laura Lee has written a love story that grabbed me and kept me interested. Not your typical best friends to lovers story, we are taken into their lives and get to see over the years the benefits and consequences of their decisions. It captivated me, had me full of compassion for both and loved the outcome. It's fun, flirty and the had me laughing out loud at some of the word choices!!! Meeting a variety of people in their lives from brothers to school friends to Nathan, it's a entertainment at it's finest. Reagan West always gives a wonderful performance and this one is no exception. She fit into the new adult genre with ease, and transformed from parents to young children in an instant. I loved it!

New to me author and narrator- so good!

In this second chance, friends to lovers story, Riley and Devyn are best friends, who are probably in love with each other from early on, but both are too young, and Riley is too much of a player, to admit it. Five years go by, surprises ensue, and they get their HEA. I loved this story. It was unique. It was believable. And sweet, not to mention hot at times. The narrator did well differentiating between male and female voices. She hesitated a little when it didn’t seem necessary but overall was great to listen to. Will definitely read and listen to more from these two!

Love me some Laura Lee!

I adore the combination of sweet, hot, and hilarious that Laura never fails to provide. I officially have a few new crushes 😉. Awesome narration by Reagan West as well. She does a wonderful job of handling both male and female POV with distinctive voices. Highly recommend this entertaining, sexy romp!

Second Chances

I enjoyed this friends to lovers story. Riley and Devin had a bestfriend relationship despite denying the mutual attraction. Despite the circumstances of their past, it was necessary for them to gain the maturity and acceptance of their true feelings if any permanent future is achievable. I enjoyed the zaniness of the secondary characters of Brody, Lorraine , and Drew. They were the much needed comic relief to a deep emotional story. The narrator waa clear, articulate and emphasized the key points by the use of vkice changes and inflections. I would recommend this audible!
