Deal Breaker
Billionaire Bosses #2
By Tara Leigh
Releasing November 14th, 2017

In Deal Breaker (Billionaire Bosses #2) by Tara Leigh, Nixie Rowland is determined to outrun her past, but it might not be that simple, especially when she's making stupid mistakes like taking a short-cut to the Subway. Luckily though, Nash Knight rides to her rescue. However, Nixie isn't about to trust a guy that reminds her of her ex. Yet, the more time she spends with Nash, the more she realizes how wrong she is about him in that he's nothing like her ex. Will Nash be able to win Nixie over before her past catches up with her, or will they lose their chance at happy ever after?

This is a story that can easily be read as a stand-alone, and it's a story that was completely riveting from start to finish, especially because of the way the story starts with the heroine finding herself in trouble and Nash coming to her rescue. Will he get to her in time before anything really bad happens to her? However, it was from that moment where the hero and heroine meet where this story really takes off and gets very interesting because the heroine is determined to be an independent woman that doesn't need a man after all she's been through with her ex while the hero isn't ready to give up on her because it's palpable she needs help or at least a friend.

As for the dialogue, it flowed really well and had me hooked due to the main characters back stories, their growing relationship and I loved every moment Nixie and Nash converse, as he's confident and a total smooth-talker, and yet, his charm doesn't work on Nixie like it does on other women including his sister-in-law. Moreover, the heroine has been through a lot and I felt sorry for her when it came to her ex, as the guy is controlling and just expects her to fall into line with what he wants from her. Will she ever be able to break free from him? However, she's resilient, courageous, independent, sassy and I liked how determined she was to resist the hero, even though their chemistry is strong and giving into it is inevitable. 

While the hero, he's worked hard to get to where he is in his life, and I liked that he was determined to win over a client because he wants the man's company, even if it means deceiving the man. I also liked the hero's confidence, his charm and his determination to win over the heroine because she's unlike any woman he's ever been with before and he wants more from her than he's ever wanted from the numerous women he's been with in the past. 
Overall, Ms Leigh has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was  strong; the romance wonderfully written to show how good these two are togther; and the ending had cheering for this couple's happy ever after as the hero does everything in his power to prove to the heroine that they belong together. I would recommend Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh, if you enjoy the opposites attract trop e or books by authors Siobhan Davis, Clarissa Wild, Am Brent and Mia Ford.

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?

More about the Billionaire Bosses series:
 This series offers a passionate peek into the tumultuous world of New York’s most beautiful bankers. Stocks and bonds aren’t the only commodities traded on Wall Street. Money, power, prestige, sex—they’re all available to the highest bidder. Each book in the series will feature sexy scions of Manhattan moguls struggling to find love and success on their own terms.

“Can I have my clothes now?” My throat was so tight, each word emerged strangled.


No? I’d swallowed my pride to sound appreciative, practically begging for my clothes back, and he had the gall to say no? Who the hell did this guy think he was?

Beneath the covers, an indignant shiver trembled through me. I couldn’t see much in the dark room, but I assumed he was the same man who’d come running into the alley last night. The memory of him was permanently ingrained in my brain. Tall, at least a foot taller than me, with close cropped dark hair and olive skin. Pale green eyes that sat above high cheekbones, fringed by long eyelashes that didn’t soften his hard edges one bit. “Listen, if you’re expecting some kind of open-armed, grateful—”

“From you?” He made a noise that sounded like a snort. “I’m getting the feeling you don’t do grateful.”

I winced, taken aback by the blunt honesty of his observation. “I never asked you to come running into the alley after me.”

“So you’re not glad I did?”

With my track record, of course I wouldn’t wind up with a run-of-the-mill good samaritan. No, instead I fell into the hands of a cocky jerk with extra time on his hands, looking for an appreciative female to stroke his ego. “How do you know I wouldn’t have been just fine on my own?”

“You’re right. I don’t.” His swift capitulation surprised me, and I sagged back against the pillow. “Next time you have your head in the clouds and don’t notice two thugs hot on your tail, looking to rob or rape you, probably both, I’ll let you take your chances.”

“Fine. All hail the conquering hero. Happy now?”

“Are you admitting that you needed my help?”

So damned smug. “Listen, we can debate my self-defense capabilities all day—”

“Night. It’s the middle of the night.”

“Whatever. All night, all day. There’s no difference. What I’m trying to say—”

The arrogant man with a white knight complex interrupted me again. “Actually, there is a difference. The difference is—it’s nighttime, and you’re in my bed getting all hot and bothered about nonsense. Either go to sleep, or we might as well channel your energy into something more productive.”

I snapped my sagging jaw shut, feeling a rush of heat between my thighs that rivaled my burning knife wound. Jeez, Nixie. Get a grip. This guy is clearly an asshole and you are not an asshole magnet.

Not anymore.

His low chuckle sent the hair at the back of my neck standing on end. “So that’s what it takes, huh? You know, most women would consider sex with me to be more of a bonus than a threat.”

Jesus, this guy had quite a set of balls on him. “Don’t flatter yourself, big shot. You could have called nine-one-one. Or dropped me off at the nearest hospital. I’m in your bed because you brought me here. And now I want to leave.”

Tara Leigh attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia Business School in New York, and worked on Wall Street and Main Street before “retiring” to become a wife and mother. When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.
