Devyn has life all mapped out. She just needs to accomplish one more thing before graduating college and becoming a full-fledged adult—lose her virginity. And who better to assist her than her best friend, Riley?
Riley is the self-proclaimed king of fling. His college years have been filled with meaningless hookups until the one night that ruined him for all other women. The one night he spends with his best friend, Devyn. Right before he screws it all up.
Balls to the wall, baby!
Now five years later, Riley is determined to atone for his mistakes and prove that he can be the man that Devyn deserves. Little does he know that Devyn’s been keeping a secret from him all these years. A big secret. Now he has to figure out how to win back the only girl he’s ever loved while navigating the pitfalls of her unexpected revelation.
Deal Breakers is filled with lots of laughs, a sexy romance, and an overflowing swear jar.

Received an ARC off Netgalley, thank you.
Where to start with the Deal Breaker, I have mixed feelings. On one hand I enjoyed the storyline but unfortunately, I didn't love it.
In the Deal Breaker, you meet Devyn and Riley in their freshman year of college. Riley is instantly attracted to Devyn, but she puts him in the friends zone. Is there ever a right time to overstep the friend zone? This is the situation Riley and Devyn found themselves in.
“Okay, here’s the thing. I’m a virgin. And you need to relieve me of that.” Riley sprays beer from his mouth all over the table. “The fuck you say?”
Devyn: I liked Devyn, she's one of the lads yet with a girly side. I loved her sassy attitude and the banter between herself and Riley.
Devyn handles herself well. Very strong character.
Riley: Riley is a total man-whore yet I loved him despite his actions.
Deal Breaker is told in both Riley's and Devyn POV's, which I enjoyed. It's also a two part storyline. First you get to see when they first met then what happens after college. The storyline is predictable yet it will still make you laugh.
