I’VE OFFICIALLY SCREWED THE POOCH.
I mean, not literally, because that would be disgusting. But I did break one of the cardinal rules of Bro Code, which is equally appalling. You see, I fell in love with my best friend’s sister after he explicitly forbid me to go near her. As if that weren’t bad enough, I went ahead and married her while sh*tfaced in Vegas.
I know that I should get an annulment and forget the whole thing ever happened, despite the fact that our wedding night was the hottest thing I’ve ever experienced.
The last thing I should do is go back for seconds.
Or thirds.
Or…you get the point.
And what I definitely shouldn’t do, is say f*ck the consequences and give this marriage a real shot.
But here’s the problem with that: I’m pretty sure that Charlotte Harris is the one. And if that’s the case, nothing is going to keep me away from her. Not even her brother.
*Deal Makers is filled with lots of laughs, drunken shenanigans, and a sexy romance. It is the third installment in the Dealing With Love series but each one can be read as a standalone.

My review:

Charlee and Drew barely know each other, but they have been fighting an attraction to each other since they met a few months prior at the engagement party of Drew’s sister, who is also one of Charlee’s close freinds. Drew is the best friend of Charlee’s brother Brody, who has forbidden them from seeing each other. Not wanting to jeopardize their friendship, and respecting the ‘bro code,’ Drew agrees. Now the whole bridal party is on a weekend trip to Vegas, where Charlee and Drew end up drinking too much and waking up married. After a panic, and realizing they don’t have time to get an annulment before heading back to Seattle, they decide to keep the marriage a secret from everyone (especially Brody) and take care of it once they are home.

Back in Seattle, firefighter Drew and chef Charlee blend into each others’ lives perfectly. Every time they are together they end up forgetting to take care of the annulment and grow closer to each other. Finally, after several weeks, it all comes to a head with Brody, who is still insisting they cannot date each other.

What I liked: Charlee and Drew were both great characters. They really are good for each other. I also liked the other characters, especially Devyn, Riley, and Rainey. Another aspect that was entertaining was the lack of “fourth wall.” Drew and Charlee both address the reader directly and it’s actually quite entertaining.

What I didn’t like: Brody’s over the top protectiveness and ultimatums. He was an ass, and his excuse was way too flimsy for me to believe that everyone accepted it so easily.

Overall: Cute, fun read.

Laura’s passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story. She won
her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!
Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit
smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and
her music turned up loud. When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s
reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances,
especially those involving vampires, bad boys, or cowboys!
