by Laura Lee



How were they supposed to know that one night would change everything?

Devyn has life all mapped out. She just needs to accomplish one more thing before graduating college and becoming a full-fledged adult—lose her virginity. And who better to assist her than her best friend, Riley?

Riley is the self-proclaimed king of fling. His college years have been filled with meaningless hookups until the one night that ruined him for all other women. The one night he spends with his best friend, Devyn. Right before he screws it all up.

Balls to the wall, baby!

Now five years later, Riley is determined to atone for his mistakes and prove that he can be the man that Devyn deserves. Little does he know that Devyn’s been keeping a secret from him all these years. A big secret. Now he has to figure out how to win back the only girl he’s ever loved while navigating the pitfalls of her unexpected revelation.

Deal Breakers is filled with lots of laughs, a sexy romance, and an overflowing swear jar.


“Love deeper and laugh harder than you ever thought possible. Never settle for anything less.”

Devyn Summers has always been focused with school and hasn’t let much of the boys get into the way of her studying. Primary focus in her life; get good grades, finish school, land a good paying job. Sounds pretty normal for your typical college student right? It’s always been a goal though for Devyn since her parents died and it’s just been her and her older brother, Brad. Devyn has a natural beauty to her that most girls around the school don’t have. She doesn’t need all the make up or the fancy clothes for the guys to notice her. What makes her the ultimate package? She hangs out at the sports bars, drinks beer and is into all the sports known to man. Just like one of the guys. Enter Riley McIntyre.

“You should try being impulsive more often. You never know what could happen.”

Riley is screwed the minute he meets Devyn. He hasn’t met a woman like her, ever. Her natural self is what he first notices, but what fully captivates him is that she is like one of the guys. All the girls that he has ever met have only wanted one thing from him. I mean don’t get him wrong, he hasn’t denied any of them. He hasn’t found the need to since he isn’t in the market for giving anything else to them and they know it. But with Devyn, he feels comfortable opening up to her. He tries and tries everything to get closer to her but she constantly friend-zones him and that’s where they will remain.
“She challenges me like no other. She keeps me grounded. She makes me want to be the best version of myself. I know that I’d be an entirely different man without her in my life.”
For the next few years in college they will remain the best of friends. It’s not like Riley hasn’t tried to get past that stage. Devyn keeps on denying every pass he makes at her. He tries. She denies. So he sleeps around. It’s a constant pattern for him. The typical player. Plus she is in no place to commit herself to anyone. She is focused on school. He is focused on getting laid. I mean don’t get it wrong, Riley is a very intelligent student, he just isn’t a commitment type of person and Devyn knows it. She doesn’t want to be a notch on his bedpost like all the others. It’s as if you can sense the feelings for each other is there, but it’s like they are both afraid to admit it. But when it’s almost time to enter the real world, Devyn propositions Riley with something. She asks the one person she can trust in the world with one thing. To free her of her virginity.
“I’m done pretending that you’ll come to your senses one day and realize what you gave up!” “After everything we’d been through we knew each other better than anyone, yet you chose to run.”
Riley makes it the best night of Devyn’s night. Then poof! They move on with their lives and don’t speak to each other again. One of the biggest mistakes of Riley’s life. Five years have passed. Some goals have changed. Some goals have been achieved. Hearts are broken. Lives have definitely been altered. But mistakes are still being regretted. Riley moves back to see if he can win Devyn back after all this time, but realizes he could be too late.  Devyn seems to have moved on. Riley can’t move past the regret after all these years. He is still miserable over it. She was the one that should have never gotten away. He wants to make things right with her and will do him hardest to fight for her, even if that means fighting dirty. Riley feels that she’s settling with the guy she is with, that he can’t make her happy. But she won’t give him the time of day. She just can’t seem to, but yet he can tell he still affects her.
“Never sell yourself short and settle for someone out of comfort or obligation. Make sure that when you do settle down one day it’s with someone who knows your worth and makes you feel everything you’re supposed to feel with the person you spend the rest of your life with.” 

I loved absolutely loved this book. I felt bad for Devyn and the situations she had to go through in college, especially about her parents. But she met Riley and he was always there for her. Even though it was just as a friendship level. He made an amazing friend. He could have made an amazing lover if he got over that fear. They practically were a couple, which made it frustrating at times! This book has you feeling so many different emotions, it’s crazy. Some of the things Riley did, I wanted to kick his ass but I was still rooting team Riley all the way. I love the idea of fighting for a second chance in love. You have to give it your all to try to win it in the end. 

This review was done by Jenn. I was given an advanced copy for my honest review. 



“My God, woman.”

“Too much?” She crosses her arms over her chest. “I wanted something that made me feel sexy. It’s stupid and trashy, isn’t it?”

Uncrossing her arms and nodding towards her body I say, “That could never be considered stupid or trashy. I’m pretty sure it’s the best damn idea you’ve ever had.”

She laughs. “Really?”

I nod enthusiastically. “Uh huh, definitely. Best. Idea. Ever.”

Memphis banner

October 25th, 2007
(Unedited, copy written @ MJ Fields)

I look in the mirror one last time, my hair is longer on top that it is on the sides. The gel I use to style it makes it look messy and black instead of dark brown. With my black boots I stand six foot three. I having spent an hour at the gym every night after school, I finally have great definition. I’m stage ready.
I walk out on stage with my guitar strung around my neck, pick in hand, waiting for the nerves to consume me. But they don’t.
Why? Because I’m a damn legend, that’s why. The stadium is sold out and the crowd is going wild.
“Hello New Jersey!” I hold the mic out for the crowd’s roar. They give me exactly what I want.
“I am Memphis Black, lead singer and guitarist extraordinaire for”—fuck I hate this part. The band, what the hell is the band’s name?
“Black Hawks,” my sister Madison whispers.
“The Black Hawks!” I yell to the ‘crowd.’
“That name is so lame.” I hear my sister’s friend Tally giggle.
“You two, out.”
“No, you said if we video taped this, you would…”
“Come on, it’s our first dance, we need to learn how!” Madison stomps her foot.
“Well, you didn’t hold up your end of the deal, now did you?” I lift the guitar strap over my head.
“Come on, please,” Madison says, eyes huge.
“Yeah please,” Tally joins her.
I consider telling them to fuck off, but they’d tell Mom. I consider a simple ‘no,’ but they’d tell her that, too. So I choose the safest answer: “Fine. But you both have to shut the hell up.”
Tally covers her mouth, looking horrified. Girl is a train wreck in epic, adolescent proportion. She has kinky brown curls and a ribbon always wrapped around her head. Freckles bridge her nose and dot her face, and she always wears cartoon character tee shirts, today it’s Care Bears.
“What now, Tales?” I huff.
“You said—”
Hell?” I laugh.
“Yeah, you did.” She giggles again.
“You know what? I think the both of you should just stay home. All freshman girls do at a dance is stand in a corner, giggle, and look like dweebs.” I look at my sister. “Mads, a boy asks you to dance? You’ll start laughing and snorting.” Next, I point at her friend. “Tales, you’ll get some big ass grin.” I roll my eyes when she covers her mouth again—little girl can’t handle a curse word to save her life. “Just keep smiling and laughing, and they’ll think there’s something wrong up in those crazy heads of yours. Besides, you’re both in that—I don’t know, awkward stage: braces, boobs just budding....”
Tally covers her mouth again while Madison starts to get really pissed off.
“I mean, look at that hair. Mads, you’re so used to wearing a ball cap you have permanent hat head. And you,” I can’t resist taking one more shot at Tally. “How the hell are you gonna get a comb through that kinky mess before Saturday?”
That’s when Madison finally screams for Mom. Tally just looks at me like that cat from the cartoon, the one with the big green guy. Shrek? Yeah Shrek. Puss , Puss in Boots. That’s what her face looks like.
Looking back at her, I almost feel kind of bad for giving them a hard time.
Mom comes in then and gives me the third degree, She tells me, ‘Girls are sensitive when they’re going through changes,' and that I should ‘be more thoughtful.’
Finally, I can’t take it anymore. “Okay Mom, fine. I will buy into their little girl fantasies about that girl, with the blue dress, the one with the mice that turn into horses—”
“Cinderella.” In spite of herself, my Mom laughs.
“Yeah. Her.”
Her face goes from amused to suspicious. Mom face. “What exactly are they doing in your room, anyway?”
“They were supposed to be taping my performance.” I try not to smile as she gives me that look. I know exactly what she’s about to say—that my rock star fantasies are just as lame as some dumb fairy tale with talking mice. “It’s not the same thing, Mom. This is my dream, something I can actually make into a career one day.”

“I know, Memphis.” She pats my back, smiling. “But maybe their dream is to dance.”

USA Today Bestselling author MJ FIELDS grew up on a farm surrounded by her extended family. She attributes her ability to write a realistic male character to the fact that she had a large amount of male influences in her life... that and the dirty joke books she would steal from her uncles or the farms hired help and run away laughing while they chased her yelling obscenities trying to get her to return the books before her God fearing mother found out and spanked her butt with a flyswatter.

No she wasn't physically abused, she very openly admits that she deserved every imprint left on her ass from the flyswatter. (Could this be why she loves tattoos? Maybe.) After each spanking she would run away, usually through the fields and down to the falls where she would laugh because it really didn't hurt, while she read the book she had stolen and stashed when no one was looking.

When she wasn't misbehaving she was working side by side with her male family members learning what hard work, loyalty, and dedication was all about, spending time with her grandmothers who taught her all about love and blind faith, or dancing and singing in the kitchen with her four siblings while her mother gave them all a childhood filled with love and encouragement to use their imagination and follow their dreams.

Her love of writing was in full swing by age eight. Together with her cousins, she wrote a 'newspaper' that they sold for ten cents to family members.

Her school years were spent hanging in the principal’s office or a shit list somewhere. Weekends she could be found spending time with her family or hanging out with more males than females, in the fields with tailgates down and a bonfire burning while music played loudly in the background. Some of those times 'allegedly' had alcohol involvement, she will neither confirm nor deny.

As an adult she self-published her first New Adult romance in January 2013. Today she has completed six self-published series. The Love series, The Wrapped series, The Burning Souls series, The Norfolk series, The Men of Steel series, and The Ties of Steel series. She also just released a book she wrote with five, yes five, other authors. It is her darkest book to date. The Original Sin is available now.

MJ has been told by several readers that they had never read a book that involved a Prince Albert piercing and although she cannot claim the title, it is said she may possibly be "The Pioneer of the Pierced Penis", in the New Adult book world, of course. (Naughty naughty.)
MJ is a hybrid author who loves her readers and tries her best to write as much as she can for them. She believes she has the best reader’s crew in the entire world (many of us agree. Forever Steel baby). She publishes an Indie book almost every month. She is also signed with a traditional publisher, Loveswept, Penguin Random House, for her co-written series The Caldwell Brothers with Chelsea Camaron. Hendrix is available now. Morrison, the second in the series, will be released on December 22nd, 2015. And Jagger, the third of the series, will be released on April 19th, 2016.

Her next Indie series is Rockers of Steel. Book one, Memphis, releasing late August or early September 2015. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but really who doesn't want MORE STEEL!
There is always something new in the works and she has stories to write for her readers for years to come. Her alpha male characters are some of the best in the industry, but remember before they fall many of them can be considered crude, rude, pierced, and tattooed. (Just the way we like them!)

If you are offended by the 'F' word she advises you either take a pass on her books or pull up your big girl thong, sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the ride. If you can't handle the heat you should stay out of the ... well the Steel and Sin book worlds anyways. If heat is all you're looking for she insists you be warned the heat will draw you in, but the heart, depth, and emotion in the books will keep you coming back for more.

MJ was a former small business owner who closed shop after the success of the Men of Steel series so she could write full time.

MJ Lives in central New York surrounded by family, friends and fur babies. Ninety percent of the time life is a noisy, beautiful, chaotic mess but in the evening hours when everyone is tucked in tight you will find her with a laptop in her comfy chair writing about the men we dream will step off the pages and into our lives.

MJ believes in love and that there is someone for everyone.

REVIEW ~ Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines

About the book: 

The first novel in a brand-new series—from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines—about a small Southern town filled with cute boys in pickup trucks, Friday night football games, and crazy parties that stir up some major drama.

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…


“For all that I had lost. For all that I had found. For all I couldn’t lose now but feared I would.”
Until Friday Night was definitely a different story line from Abbi’s other books, but like Abbi fashion, she killed it! This was a page turner. I kept saying, just one more chapter and BAM! It was two am and I was forcing myself to bed. From the very beginning of the book, I felt every single emotion that Maggie and West went through, every gripping one. Keep tissues handy. Just saying. Abbi will toy with your emotions on this one, like put you on a roller coaster ride. She will make you laugh, she will make you cry, have your heart teetering, drop a little, make it fall in love, maybe a little crack, and maybe put it back together again and get the fuzzies. But in the end, reading this book will be all worth it.
“I needed someone to know my pain. Someone to understand it.”

After witnessing one of the most horrifying moments of her life and losing the person she loved the most, Maggie Carleton felt the only way she could cope would be to go mute. Her godmother finally shipped her off the only family she had left, the Higgen’s. Her Aunt Coralee is worried about her being in a new surrounding, in a new school with no friends, so she has her cousin Brady act as her babysitter since they are pretty much the same age. Maggie feels she can handle things on her own since Brady feels put off by the idea of having to watch her, but is grateful for his help once she realizes how lost she gets in the school. Maggie finally realizes that starting a new life in a new environment is going to be tough, especially when she doesn’t talk. Making friends is sure going to be a tough one. Getting her cousin to like her is going to be much tougher.
“This was the first time I really saw him, the guy he didn’t reveal to anyone. His mask was gone, and there as heaviness in his voice and darkness in his eyes.”
West Ashby is the go to guy. The one that every guy wants to be and the one that every girls wants to be with. He’s a star athlete, has a way with the lady, and is loyal to his friends and has a great love for his family. But under it all, he’s hiding it from everyone that his father is dying. The same father that loves football just as much as he does. He’s even kept it from his best friend, Brady, but he doesn’t know how much more he can hold in. As the days go by, he has to watch his father deteriorate and watch his mother cry over the fact that she will lose the love of her life. What will he do then? What will she do when that time comes?
“Don’t mind me. I’m just tired of acting like I give a shit out there. I needed to be alone. Since you don’t talk, that makes it better. Someone I can talk to who keeps quiet. Might be fucking perfect.”
West and Maggie seem like complete opposites to the public, but yet they hold such a deep connection to one another. A connection, no one but themselves can explain. West is going through some difficult times in his life with his dad that no one, not even his mom realizes that he is feeling. But yet Maggie sees right though him. It’s like she can tell just by one look at him. She can see right through him. She takes it upon herself to help him, even if that means breaking her silence.
“You’re talking to me. Why me?”“Because you needed me to. You need to know someone else has lived through pain like yours.”
“She gave me peace. She was the only thing that had given me peace in a long time.”
 West is surprised when she speaks to him, but it’s a secret that is shared between the two of them. He realizes that it’s her way of coping and he finds a way to help her heal from the past. The field is their spot, much different than the football field. But it's a place where they both can be themselves. They fall into a fast and easy friendship, providing each other comfort and peace. She is slowly making a way into his heart. Brady and their friends are shocked with this new friendship since West doesn’t do friends, while Brady warns Maggie to guard her heart constantly. As their friendship slowly develops, so do other feelings. West is known to use girls to help cope, causing insecurities to rise on Maggie’s end. But with everything that West is going through, she bottles them in and pulls through for him. He needs someone to be strong for him right now and she’s that person.
“I didn’t remember what hope felt like. It had been so long since I’d hoped for anything.”
What will happen to West and Maggie’s relationship? Will her insecurities get worse or will she fight them? Will they be able to work out their “relationship”/friendship and figure it out? What will happen to West’s mom? How will she end up coping? How does Brady feel about West and Maggie’s relationship? As well as her aunt and uncle?
“It never leaves you…The hurt.” “But you learned to live and you learn to deal with the loss. You do what you have to survive.”

I absolutely loved this book. There isn’t enough to put into words how much I loved this book and everything I felt about it. I’ll just have you read it for yourself. I’m hoping she continues more books about this series at a fairly decent pace haha. I would love to hear a story about Brady next…. Maybe??? Abbi?? Please???

This review was done. I was given an advanced copy for my honest review.
