When he takes charge, I’ve been known to do a lot of stupid shit, despite the fact that I have a genius IQ. Case in point: How I met the woman of my dreams.

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t regret that moment of idiocy one bit. It may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of my life, but you know wha

Chris Hemsworth for being the perfect Thor. #HaveYouSeenTheSizeOfHisHammer


Laugh Out Loud and Slap Your Thigh kinda RomCom which had me hooting with laughter at EVERY PAGE! First of all I think Laura is Leroy, hear me out, cause how do you think like a man SO PERFECTLY. It's like she grew D and Balls just for the book! Omg it was so typically authentic Male POV, it was freaky. I come from a family of pompous, cocky men and they all speak and think like Brody Harris !! So on that count....WELL

OMG!! I did it! I popped my Laura Lee Cherry <3

This book…was the perfect book I needed to read today. From the opening scene…

“I took some Iagra-vay and I think my ick-day may be oken-bray”

It’s from this opening scene, we truly get a grasp for who Brody Harris is. A 24-year-old playboy. One that has no filter and tells everything the way he sees it. He’s a playboy attending graduate school, studying to become a Aerospace Engineer. So not

Deal Takers is the second book in the Dealing with Love Series by Laura Lee, but fear not if you have yet to read Deal Breakers, the first book, no worries this book can be read as a standalone. I will warn you though once you read this book you will want to go back and read Devyn and Riley's book.

“I took some Iagra-vay and I think my ick-day may be oken-bray”

Can you tell by this tiny excerpt that this was a fun read? The banter between Brody and Rainey was great, I mean sometimes I had tea

If you would’ve told me a year ago that I’d be driving to the beach, my Suburban loaded with baby gear, I would’ve said that you were certified batshit. The kid’s not mine, but his stuff is taking up half the cargo area nonetheless. Drew appointed me chauffeur this weekend because I was the only one with a vehicle that could accommodate everything. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. I’d prett

Oh man, I got my hands on an advanced copy and I could not put this one down! Let me just say, don’t start this one if you have stuff to do because you won’t want to be bothered. Brody is the kind of guy you want to dislike but can’t. It’s not often that I find a book where the characters can do things I don’t like, but I find them charming anyway. The main characters had such GREAT chemistry. I REALLY enjoyed this one!! Laura Lee is a fantastic romance writer and this book had it all - humor, S ...more

Brody has always been a ladies man, and ending up in an embarrassing situation because of women isn’t a surprise, the surprise was meeting Rainey.

For four years Brody and Rainey build a weird playful sort of friendship where he hits on her and she rejects him, till her engagement falls apart. Maybe it’s time to put his money where his mouth is.

I laughed, had a few tears at her insecurities and rolled my eyes at these two. They were made for one another. It made a younger man, older women scenar

From the cover to the synopsis, Deal Takers had me hooked from the very beginning. The first sentence in the opening scene had me laughing and excited to keep reading until the very end. The story was full of charm and second chances that will leave you wanting for more.

As I mentioned before, the story starts off with a hilarious scene where we are introduced to Brody Harris, a grad student who was just looking to have some fun and ended u

Deal Takers is the second book in the Dealing With Love series by Laura Lee. OMG! I laughed so hard at points through this book that I had tears streaming down my face. This is one of the funniest and best RomComs that I have EVER read! (And I have read a lot). But, there is a lot more to the story than just some fun and giggles. There is passion, pain, emotion, chemistry, and tension- with a story that really coaxes you in, grabs you by the hair and then won’t let go! I wouldn’t have put

Cute, light hearted, and funny Deal Takers had me jumping back and forth between giggling and swooning on every page. Brody and Rainey have a bit of a slow burn, which isn’t typically my favorite, but the banter and chemistry between them was so insanely good I didn’t even notice. Actually, that banter with those sparks was nearly like foreplay for these two.
I really enjoyed starting from the past and seeing every bit of all Brody and Rainey went through. From the seriously hilarious to the hea

I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time! From the first sentence I knew this was going to be a book I enjoyed. I absolutely love Brody, he is a walking talking sexual innuendo and super hot, so exactly my type :) Rainey is just as hot as Brody, and together they are explosive. This book has more than just laughs though, there is some pretty angsty moments thrown in there. But really Thor is the reason I kept reading, j/k, maybe ;) This is my first book by Laura but will not be my last. Thanks H ...more

I don't think their will be one woman that reads this book and wouldn't want their own Brody the guys hot and super funny with a slight bit of cockiness about him!

That's what makes this a very good rom-com book, Brody who you could say is a bit of a man-whore and Rainey who's pretty unlucky in love that is until Brody and Rainey meet under very embarrassing circumstances and Brody is immediately enamoured by her looks she's the whole package for him.

Hilarious, hot, sweet, and perfect!

This is my favorite rom-com that I’ve read this year! As soon as I started it I was laughing my butt off and couldn’t put it down. I was hooked on the story line and invested in the characters.

Brody is the typical bad boy, playboy. He has an ego to match the size of “Thor.” He, as proven in his history, can get whatever girl he wants. That is, until he meets feisty, confident Rainey on an unexpected trip to the ER. He refuses to give up without a fight! I coul

This is the second book in the series and I have to say that I loved this one more than the first because HOLY HADES does Laura know how to write from a mans perspective. I have never ever laughed so damn hard in my life but this book is so damn funny I was laughing so hard I was crying.

These characters are nothing short of ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I was drawn into this story immediately. The guy was hilariously persistent and absolutely dreamy. The stubborn heroine was his perfect match. This is a top read for me. It had everything you need in a love story. Angst, steam, twists, and parts that leave you giggling and gasping for air. I will be recommending this story everywhere!

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I loved this story. Great characters and storyline, plus the chemistry was great. The story is about Lorraine, Rainey and Brody. Rainey is a nurse in the OB Ward at a hospital in Seattle, The Day The Story begins she's actually working in the emergency room because they're short-staffed. She has been dating a guy named Adam for a while, technically they are engaged but she can't tell anyone because they work together. Brody is in grad school a ...more
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)
When Rainey attends to a hot guy in the hospital where she's a nurse, she's quite amused at his predicament. A predicament he never would have been in if he hadn't taken a certain blue pill before his night with two women. Yep, it's as bad and amusing as you can imagine. But when that hottie hits on her, it leaves her with a less than amused impression of him. So then imagine her surprise, and distaste, when she's introduced to her new friend's brother's friend, yep, you guessed it, the annoying ...more

If a guy looks like a Hemsworth brother (seriously, that gene pool is sheer nirvana) and names his "hammer" Thor, it's pretty much a given I'm going to like him! Book two of Laura Lee's Dealing with Love series starts off with a bang and I haven't laughed so hard in quite a while!

Brody and Rainey meet in the most awkward, and memorable, meet cute of all time when he is forced to make an ER visit on behalf of...his hammer. Falling in instant lust with your nurse while in his predicament isn't th

5 out of 5 stars

The story Deal Takers (Dealing With Love Book 2) by Laura Lee is a romance book that when reading I had a constant smile on my face and frequently laughing out loud. The story got my attention from the first chapter and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. This is a book that has plenty of sarcasm and innuendos. There is plenty of bantering/dirty talking between the two main characters. They have a strong

Holy hotness overload! This book took my breath away in so many ways. I think it would be more proper to give this FIVE Thor hammers, rather than stars, but nonetheless it gets FIVE! I am a cemented fan of Laura Lee now and I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series!

So in all we get a great rom-com out of this. It isn’t the average rom-com mistaken love type of novel. Instead it’s a slow burn, slow build, romance with lots of comedic relief to keep you balanced while reading. I felt the

This is the first book I have read from this author and she blew me away. I love a good friends to lovers story but this book exceeded all my expectations. This is the second book of the Dealing with Love series. This book can be read as a stand alone but there are prior characters in this story as well. I was hooked on these characters right from the start. I was so interested in what would happen to these characters I read this book in only one day.

This book! Laura managed to nail the male POV in the novel perfectly, I loved everything about Brody after meeting him and Rainey in the previous book Deal Takers there was a clue they at least have a casual hook when Devyn catches them getting up close and personal in her kitchen one morning, but their story goes beyond that. So Deal Takers is set in the 5 year gap we have in Deal Takers (Book 1) before it catches up to present time. The opening chapters set the tone for the book perfectly and ...more

As a first impression this is a doozy! Brody Harris first meets Rainey O’Neil in the ER. He thinks it’s a prime opportunity for him to ask her out. Rainey pegs him for a player (you’ll laugh when you read why), and turns him down. Thus begins the start of their journey, and, boy, what a trip! Brody thinks there’s nothing sexier than a pissed off Rainey, and he loves to see Rainey at her sexiest. Although he’s made it his mission to get under her skin, he’d really like to get her under the covers ...more

Brody, and aerospace engineer, meets Rainey, a nurse, when he decides to go into the emergency room after taking a viagra pill. LOL. There is an instant chemistry between them but Rainey does not want to get involved with him because she is engaged to a doctor. However, Rainey turns out to be the best friend of Brody's friends sister so it's basically impossible for them to avoid each other. After a few years, Brody continues to pursue Rainey but she tries to avoid him because she is still engag ...more

Laura Lee takes you on a whirlwind of a love/hate relationship between a nurse and a playboy with the mind of a 13 year old horny boy with Deal Takers, her second book in the Dealing With Love Series.

Now, you absolutely can read this one as a stand alone. Rainey and Brody’s story is almost completely separate from the original book Deal Breakers. Just some reoccuring characters over all.

Lee really made me laugh with this book. Brody’s constant chase of Rainey was absolutely as hilarious as it

I LOVED this story!! I literally laughed out loud reading the beginning. That’s what snuckered me in. From the first page to the last i was entranced. This is exactly my kind of book. This is written with humor and snark. Each of these characters are filled to the brim with each one. Brody is actually fuller then brim he probably has a second cup full. The things that boy says? I’m never know if I going to be shocked or just in awe. H

I so completely loved this book I cant even explain in words how much. I want to read the first one now as well and will, but in saying that you don't necessarily have to read them in order, I wish I had just to have the history on a couple of the characters.
