Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh
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?

3.5 “Anything for another chance” stars!!

Nixie Rowland was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Completely unaware of her surroundings, she turned down an alley and was followed in by two thugs. Lucky for her, a knight in shining armor caught the action about to happen and saved the day. Nash Knight rescued the damsel-in-distress who ended up injured and brought her to his home to recover. He didn’t expect to love seeing her in his space, a space he never shared with anyone. And that’s just the beginning…

Nixie has only known loss. She lost her family in 9-11 and now the man she thought was the love of her life turned out to be someone else. She’s not interested in another relationship. She’s just trying to keep her head above water and hiding from one who wants more from her than she’s willing to give. Nash doesn’t know anything about relationships and doesn’t care. His true loves are his work and his brother’s twins. After losing his brother to the war, his perspective on life changed. Who needed love? But meeting Nixie throws his whole life out-of-whack. For these two, most resistant to love, it couldn’t have hit them harder.

Tara Leigh did a fantastic job of illustrating the push and pull between Nash and Nixie. Their chemistry was undeniable but the fight that Nash had on his hands to earn a chance with her was hard to handle. While I was frustrated like crazy with Nixie, I was rooting right until the end for Nash. In the end, this manwhoring billionaire found his heart and became a swoon-worthy hero and that’s a win in my book.
