✯BLOG TOUR:✯ Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh {REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!}





Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh

Release Date: November 14th 2017 by Swerve
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

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?

My Review:

Not having read the first book in the Billionaire Bosses series, I didn’t know what to expect when reading Deal Breaker. At first glance the cover the synopsis completely hooked me in, and after reading the book I can say that I cannot wait to read more from the author in the future. 

At the very beginning we get to see Nash Knight and Nixie Rowland’s first encounter. After being chased by two suspicious looking guys, Nixie is ready to defend herself when Nash comes rushing to her rescue. Not being used to being rescued, Nixie wakes up in Nash’s house after suffering minor injuries. It is when she is ready to go back home that Nash’s protective instinct kicks in and wants to protect her. He doesn’t know that she has been running away from her past, but neither that she know the demos that he works so hard to hide. When Nash is ready to close a deal, he bumps into an obstacle when he is questioned about being single and not settling down. In the world of business everyone still sees him as someone who is not committed and he wants to change that. When he makes a daring proposition to Nixie; a marriage in name only. She doesn’t know what else to say or do, but a marriage will help her save enough money to start a fresh life. Little did she know that her marriage in name only would turn out to be so much more as soon as the two started to get to know each other better. Now it’ll be up to them figure out if taking a change on a relationship is worth the risk or not. 

I very much enjoyed the overall story, it’s evident that both of the characters are still working on their pasts and that has made it difficultly to move forward. Nixie has been trying to escape from an abusive ex-boyfriend and now that she has a good life it has suddenly come back to haunt her. On the other hand, Nash has been through a lot emotionally. He lost his brother and he is able to connect with Nixie as she has lost her parents as well. He is a total alpha male and wants to protect her no matter what which can be sweet and a bit overprotective at times. I liked how their relationship progressed over time and the ending was a sweet. I do wish we could have gotten more on their pasts and the pace felt a bit rushed, but it all still worked in the end. I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a quick romantic read. :)

HOLLY'S JOLLY CHRISTMAS

by Raya Love

"Oh, you are in for it now, babe," he said in a deep, desire laden voice. And that was all the warning that I got before his mouth was on mine, giving me a scorching kiss that left my head spinning more than the eggnog had. I leaned into it, lifting one leg over his lap to straddle him, my arms now around his shoulders.

I could feel his considerable hardness pressed against me as our hips ground together. His hands found the zipper of my snowsuit and hastily pulled it down, allowing him to reach inside and slide his palms over my breasts.

I was getting desperate to feel him inside of me, the longing becoming stronger and stronger until I couldn't stand it a second longer. Freezing weather be damned, I tore myself away from Jasper's crushing kiss, pulling my arms out of the snowsuit and adjusting myself so I could slide the rest of it down to my knees, taking my leggings with it and leaving me completely naked from the waist down. I threw the blanket aside and turned to position myself on my hands and knees, looking back over my shoulder and watching the look of raw hunger that danced in his evergreen gaze.

"Holy fuck," he said softly, his tone filled with reverence. "You are the hottest fucking thing I have ever seen."

"I want you Jasper." My voice sounded ragged , husky, pleading almost. I moved my face forward again, the view of the whole valley so far below us making me feel as though I was on top of the world. I could hear him moving behind me, but I couldn't see anything he was doing, which was making the anticipation build to a crescendo. I was almost to orgasm and he hadn't even started yet.

His ice-cold and snowflake tattooed hands gripped my hips with a bruising strength, sending goose bumps racing across my skin. I could sense him inching closer to my sex, preparing to enter me. I was aching in need, wanting him to fill me with his thick shaft more than I'd ever wanted anything in my life. When he finally pushed into me, I let out a triumphant scream of satisfaction, my voice echoing through the woods around us. He moved in me roughly, the force of his thrusts rocking me to my core.

We rutted like wild beasts on that cliffside. A gentle snow began to fall, dusting us with powder and making the whole world look clean and new. The sharp breeze was howling against the stones, a mirror of our own cries of passion. Both Jasper and I had let loose our inhibitions, our primal instincts driving us in unison.

My release was close; I could feel it coiling inside of me, on the verge of explosion. One more thrust of his diamond hard cock into my heat and I was pushed over the edge, my pussy convulsing around him and drawing his own climax out. He dug his inked up fingers into my hips with a fierce brutality, holding me against him tightly as he spilled himself into me and let out a deep, possessive cry into the starry night.

Holy shit. That was a wilder ride than the fucking snowmobile could ever give me.

Tommy

Seven years ago, I thought I could save Beth, the girl I loved from the monster who was supposed to take care of us. I thought I could keep Beth and all the other kids at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles safe.

I failed. Badly. Now we all have blood on our hands and owe a dangerous man a very dangerous debt. We don’t know when he’ll come calling for payment, but when he does – we pay, or we suffer.

When my turn comes, I’m ready for anything.

Except seeing Beth again.

LOVE IS NEVER FREE

Beth


No one ever tells you that the cost of having your dreams come true is literally every single other part of your life. Yes, I’m a huge pop star these days, but I’m pretty much a mess, too.

I’ve spent my life hiding behind disguises, make-up and costumes, all to protect myself from the kind of pain that comes from revealing your true self to someone.

I did that once. With Tommy. The only person I ever loved. It didn’t turn out so well.

And now, with everything else falling apart around me, I’m suddenly in the backseat of his car.

Being kidnapped.

And the past we’ve both tried to run from is catching up with us.

Contains The Debt: A Prologue and 50,000 more words in the continuation of Tommy and Beth's story.

After her latest disaster, Pepper moves across the country to start over but, as usual, her life has other plans, namely in the form of Derek Cashette, her former teenage crush and now ridiculously handsome friend of her older brother.

Derek is determined to salvage the train wreck of her life and Pepper’s determined not to let him. Her life is her problem and, dammit, why can’t she be her own hero?

But sometimes fate has other plans. Or maybe it’s hormones. Especially when her rescuer comes with a killer smile, a chest Thor would be jealous of, and a butt that any girl just wants to—

{EXCERPT}

So why in the world did this rough-and-tough Costa enforcer come to my rescue?

As I make my way up his arm, scrubbing gently at the bloody lacerations and dark bruises, I come across a familiar sight. A tattoo. One I have not seen with my own two eyes in many years. The sight of it instantly throws me back, and a tidal wave of confused emotions overtake me. I freeze up, staring at the intricate lines of the tattoo, suddenly remembering all the things I have tried so hard to forget, dark things that time has buried.

And with it, an overwhelming sense of urgency to ask, to know for certain that this man is who my heart wills him to be. By chance, by fate, by magic. By whatever means necessary for him to have walked back into my world again, albeit beaten down and roughened up and subdued.

I look up from the tattoo to meet his eyes, and the answer to my question is there in his pale green eyes long before the words even leave my lips. It’s him. I know it is. But I still can’t stop myself from asking, just to be sure.

“Bruno? Is… is that you?”
