Well first of all I enjoyed this story, it's a fairly long book so be prepared. It's starts with Bethany, she meets a gorgeous guy on a business flight and the electricity is instant. She can't get enough of Adam, and they spend a hot steamy night together, but that's not enough so Adam makes contact with Beth and they make a deal. Sex no emotions. Easy right well I'm not sure about that and it becomes obvious shortly into reading their story that Adam is inves

Loved it!!

Adam is one sexy man and knows how to win over a room with just one smile. Bethany is a strong independent woman and hopes to keep him in her grasp. But will the "Skirt chaser" keep his hands on only one woman? Dive in to find out. I did and holy moly every page I could not flip fast enough!

This was a fun and sexy read. Fun concept, sex without it that easy? Not so sure when it comes to Adam.

Adam and Bethany, neither really wanting a relationship, (view spoiler), can a deal while made in bed with lipstick and chocolate sauce really hold up for these two?

I liked the characters, both very strong and independ

The book starts off great Bethany Drake is a owner of a graphic designer and Adam a big time divorce attorney. They connected and the deal was strictly sex. The more they had the emotions was there. She has put her emotions in check but Adam has not but does what he canto show her love. This book is a great way of showing how love can creep on you and if your willing to open up and feel it. I loved how the book flowed and it is a great read. Thank you Deborah Ann.

Hot story that makes you want more of Adam and Bethany

"The Deal" is one of those books that makes you feel good all over and I mean ALL OVER.

Bethany and Adam meet by chance as passengers on an airplane. Bethany gives in to a weird connection with his stranger and allows him to get to know her better on the flight. This is so unlike Bethany but she is able to walk away from him when their night of passion is over, heart in tact. Clean break or so she thinks.

Adam, the high power divorce attorney

I won a signed copy of this book through a giveaway on FaceBook. The following is my honest opinion for the book

I enjoyed reading this detailed fictional memoir of Bethany Drake and the relationship she had with her polar positive Adam Blaire. While she had no problems developing relationships with men who she’d had in her mind would ask her to marry, her last breakup wound up creating a complete mental turnaround and now has sworn never to get involved with another male.

This book starts out hot and doesn't offer much cool down time. I can honestly say it gets your engine revved and keeps you going hot. No cool downs in this book- best you can hope for is the lower simmer.

Bethany and Adam meet on a plane. She allows him to own her body on the plane. They go to a hotel and have a night of life changing, mind altering sex that leaves both speechless. Then they go about their lives.

If you love romance you need to read this book. It is filled with intense chemistry, an alpha male and strong willed woman. Along with that some sensual scenes, that are so well written. I am looking forward to more books by Deborah.

The Deal is a panty melting, erotic romance by Deborah Ann.
Bethany Drake (Beth) and Adam Blaire met on a business flight from Los Angeles to Toronto a month ago, where they shared the most amazing sexual escapade either had ever experienced. A one-night-stand, that neither would soon forget- if ever.
Bethany has sworn off men, after finding that her ex had been cheating on her. She hasn’t had a good track record with men and so decided she was better off without them. She owns a very succ

The Deal is the sequel to First Sight by Deborah Ann. This is my second novel by this author.

A few weeks after the one night stand, Adam contacts Bethany though she isn't sure how he got her number. The two form a deal of having a sexual relationship only. No dates, no sleep overs, with monogamy if the other so wishes. Though they both agree they do not share.

Lizzy, Bethany’s friend and business partner, is divorcing her husband and seeking full custody of their three kids together. Her husband

This book takes off straight after the Prequel First Sight.
Bethany and Adam resume life after their one night of passion. They are under each other's skin in the best way. Adam is more aware of the rarity and validity of their connection but is up for the challenge of getting Bethany on board.
The prequel was all about the instant connection and first moments between these two and I'm happy to say you get a great insight into their personalities and character. Adam was like a flower slowly blosso

Adam and Bethany met on a fateful trip to Toronto some time ago and shared a passionate night in Adam’s suite. Their deal was to be together for one night and move on. However, Adam just had to have more time with Bethany and she happily compiled to a new deal, sex devoid of all emotion. They set down the rules and began their non- relationship. What Bethany didn’t expect was to let Adam into her life in such subtle, but massive ways. The deal was no intimacy, no courting rituals, not a ...more

This book was almost everything I had hoped for. After reading the prequel I couldn’t wait to read the main story. I wanted to know what makes Adam and Bethany tick, and this book certainly delivered that, although I would have loved to learn even more about the sexy divorce attorney.
The deal is simple, sex with no strings, no emotions, no intimacy. Just the way both of them like it. But what happens when the intimate moments sneak in anyway? What happens when you realise that you do care? That

Bethany is a strong, independent woman with no time for love. Deciding that she is unlucky in matters of the heart and meant to be alone, she has sworn off lasting relationships. (Not surprising when you find out the man you’re living with is a lying cheat.) Running her design business, and the occasional one-night-stand, is all she needs. But can a steamy encounter on a plane change her mind and lead to something more?
