My story isn’t a love story … not the typical kind anyway.
As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming.
Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons why I can’t. Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I tried.
Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed. I never knew two people who lived together could be so distant. But I’m not ready to give up on him.
One man wants to break me.
The other is just trying to get even.
Both are lying to me.
***This is a standalone contemporary romance (though a little unconventional and twisted!)
“Do you shower yourself in arrogance every morning, Mr. Holtz? You may want to use a little less next time.” My toes curl in the water, but I hold my voice steady.
He grips my hips, sliding my body close to his. If his cock is any indication, he’s just as turned on by this back and forth as I am. “Just admit you like it. You like having someone take care of your every need. You like having all my attention, and you definitely like my cock.”
“River,” I breathe as he kisses a line from my jawline to my shoulder.
“Admit it. You like me,” he says, his lips moving against my skin.
My fingers curl against his back. “Make me,” I taunt, enjoying the way he teases.
He groans, his lips pulling away from me. He stares, his eyes only inches from mine. He’s baiting the truth, but something tells me he already knows. And, I can’t stand that he’s not touching me, not when his words still play over and over in my head. I want to know what he’s capable of; it’s hard to believe I haven’t already seen and felt the best of him.
He cocks his head to the side, and I can’t take it. “I kind of like you. Now, kiss me.” As I hear my own words, I realize they’re true. I kind of like River Holtz, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about that.
“Kind of?” he asks, lifting his brow.
Damn him. If someone would have told me eleven days ago when River walked in my office that I’d be telling this man I like him let alone naked in his tub, I would have called them crazy.
“I like you,” I blurt before pressing my lips to his. I’m completely consumed. Addicted.
Whitney’s Four Star Review
I was pretty excited when I read the synopsis for Break Even. I have enjoyed all of Lisa’s other books and was ready for something a bit different than what I’ve been reading.
I’m sure you can infer that cheating may be involved in this story and don’t let that scare you away. I’m not a big fan of it in books but I can always make exceptions and this is definitely one. If you give the storyline and characters a chance, the author will bring everything full circle and it will make sense.
I wouldn’t necessarily say this is a love triangle, either. I thought it would be but it was clear pretty early on I wasn’t going to be losing sleep wondering which guy Marley should end up with. Not going to spoil that bit of information for you but I promise this book is worth the read.
It’s sexy and while there is some angst, I actually consider this a fairly light and quick read. The author does a good job developing each guy and I really liked Marley. She’s tough but has an air of sweet vulnerability as well. An easy four star recommendation!
