Author: Tara Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
About 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?

Exclusive Excerpt:

“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.”


Wow!  Just Wow!  What an amazing story!  I was so captivated by this book.

In this book Nash Knight is a self-made billionaire and part-time boxer.  He has come from nothing to something earning him the title the Black Knight of Wall Street.  He is cold and calculated.

Nixie is running from her past and she happens to run into a dark alley unaware of the dangers that are following behind her.  When she is attacked a good-looking man comes to her rescue.

Nash sees what is transpiring as he is leaving the gym.  Rushing in to save the damsel in distress he finds her being attacked and rescues her.  She starts to yell at him and then she passes out from blood loss and shock.  As Nash carries a unconsious Nixie to his home to be looked at by his on call doctor, he struck by how beautiful she is.  He wonders what else she may be running from.

When Nixie wakes in a strangers bed all she can think of is how to get away.  She is scared and this beautiful alpha male is more trouble than she needs in her life.

This book was fantastic.  The characters were so charismatic and I just fell in love with their story.  I believe Eva is delusional and I wanted to slap the crap out of her.  I really wished that Nixie did not back down from her the way she did.  But Eva knew what she was doing.  Very conniving.

Nash is that perfect knight in shining armor.  “Nash, my knight in shining armor who insisted his cape was black despite it being as white as his perfect teeth.”  He has a very hard time admitting that he can and is in love with Nixie.  Nixie is a very stubborn and strong-willed individual with a run for the hills approach to anything that scares her.  Together they are perfect for each other.

This book was a page turner from the very beginning.  I was hooked easily.  It had loads of drama, suspense and humor.  I am looking forward to reading more by Tara Leigh.  Even though this is a second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone.  A very entertaining and exciting read.
