Blog Tour: Deal Breaker

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?

Out of all the stories about penthouse players and young billionaire entrepreneurs, Deal Breaker has been the most interesting. In the second Billionaire Bosses novel, Tara Leigh brings two lovers together by the connection of tragedy and the hope of happily ever after.

Nixie is on the run from her ex-boyfriend who planned to marry her for the money she'll receive when she turns 25. Nash is a hardworking mogul who's hobbies are work, work, and women. The two are in different places in their lives. Where Nixie plans on putting down roots, Nash does everything in his power to avoid a committed relationship, even when it comes to the mother of his adored niece and nephew.

The story is crafted excellently. I was intrigued by the way the two characters were brought together. They both suffered tragic losses that affect their actions in the present, yet Nixie and Nash work their way toward a happy future. I did expect there to be a little more drama to shake the emotional aspect of the plot. There is some drama that stems from Nash's ex, but it seemed mechanical as though it was only added to thicken the plot. I didn't really get engaged in that part of the story. I was more focused on how the marriage of convenience trope would play out in the story. Tara Leigh does a marvelous job of throwing that into the story to provide the ultimate challenge for Nixie and Nash.

Overall, Deal Breaker is a sizzling romance, both cozy and steamy that will keep you wrapped up until the end rooting for Nixie and Nash.
