My Review

3.5 Balls to the wall stars 

"Okay, here's the thing. I'm a virgin. And you need to relieve me of that."

"Riley! Stop staring at my boobs!" I throw my hands up in frustration. "Tell your boobs to stop staring at my eyes!"

Deal breakers is a cute friends to lovers romance. I really liked it, but I would have liked more character & relationship development. 

What this book is about

The minute Riley lays eyes on Devyn he wants her, but when Riley asked her out Devyn made it clear that all she was looking for was friendship. Devyn and Riley become best friend after that and are so close that they spend like every day together for the next 4 years of college. Right before graduating college Devyn ask Riley for a big favor. Sleep with her so she doesn't go into the real world with her V-card. Riley having always wanted her says yes and they spend one magical night together. While they make love to each other they both realize they have been in love with each other for years. Devyn tells Riley she loves him and Riley chickens out, acts like he is sleeping and then the next day he runs. They don't talk for 5 years. Riley knows he made a huge mistake. He is still in love with Devyn and wants her. So he moves to her town with plans to win her back and make up for past mistakes, but Devyn has been hiding a big secret from him these past five years and she has a boyfriend. Can Riley get past the life changing secret and convince Devyn that he is the man for her?

He smiles. "Ah, I get it, brother. You've been touched by the Magic Pussy." "The magic what?" "The Magic Pussy," he repeats. "Pussy that is so good you can never get enough and it's impossible to forget. An Urban Legend in my opinion, but you sure do have all the pathetic signs."

"Then what do you want, Rye? What the hell do you want?" "YOU! All I've ever wanted since the day we met was you!"

Riley is fun, sweet, but a total man slut! He is an only child and with his good looks and charm things come easy to him. Devyn is a good girl who aways follows the rules. Both her parents are dead and she only has her brother Drew. Devyn is very down to earth and doesn't know how good looking she is. Riley and Devyn together are smokin' hot. They have a cute friendship that makes them a cute couple but I hated them being apart for 5 years. 

"I'll give you time to get your shit together, but don't walk away from this, Devyn. Don't walk away from us."

He shuts my bedroom door and turns the lock. "Take advantage of me, huh?" I laugh. "Oh yes, absolutely. And I'm going to objectify the hell out of you."

I really wished this book would have went a little deeper. I feel like I didn't really get to know who Riley and Devyn are beside the man slut and good girl tom boy. And while their relationship was cute it was superficial. I don't feel like I got to see them fall in love or hurt over their time apart and secrets. There are some really sweet moments in this book and some very funny ones as well. The ending was swoon worthy! Deal Breakers is a cute, quick read!

"For the record, my wee wee has grown quite a bit since then." My mom pats me on the cheek. "I'm sure it has, dear. If you take after your father, Devyn is quite the lucky lady." I cringe. "Mom! Gross! I didn't need to know that!"
