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 s

Andrew Summer, 32, is fighting a strong attraction to his best friend’s sister. But Drew lives by the “Bro Code” so resisting Charlotte Harris, 31, is what he’s determined to do. Until alcohol and a night alone in Vegas takes away his inhibitions.

I give points to Charlee for not buying into this whole Bro Code that included her younger brother’s silly insistence that she’s off limits. I couldn’t agree more that he had no say in her love life so why she later let him manipulate things is

Omg!!! This is the first book I've read by this author, definitely not the last! My gah I was blown away with her writing!
This was also the best forbidden, best friends sister book I have read in a long time!

Charlee and Drew were amazing!
Charlee wants Drew and he wants her too but Bro Code is standing in the way!
A bachelor and bachelorette party in Vegas lead Charlee and Drew together for a while, they get totally wasted and end up married.

At first they both want an annulment, but as time goe

Laura Lee perfectly combines sweet swoony romance with laugh out loud hilarity like no one else! I’ve adored every book in this series so far, but Drew and Charlee’s story is definitely my favorite. They have this perfect mix of heat, sweet, fun, and a pinch of drama to really make things interesting. To say I devoured this book is an understatement. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything so fast in my life! I just couldn’t get enough of their story.
I loved everything about these two. Drew is se

Is there an option for more stars? I freaking LOVED this book!! I was excited to read Drew and Charlee’s story, especially after we got a glimpse of them in Laura’s Christmas short, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to love them as much as I loved Brody and Rainey in Deal Takers.

Well.... happy to report that I laughed just as hard... probably even harder during Deal Makers!

I love how the author totally takes us in the head of the characters. Drew and his conversations with his certain ^anatomy

I absolutely loved Drew and Charlotte's story and couldn't put it down.

This was book was a steamy read and is a definite mist read. This book could be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading the books in order.

I went backwards to begin with in reading the Dealing With Love series. I read this book first but then eventually read the first two and reread book three - because why not I enjoyed it so much the first time I knew I would love it again.
Drew is Brody's best friend and has only recently met Brody's sister Charlee. I loved how they couldn't stay away from each other, knowing that Brody would not be happy. I also liked how the story jumped from past to present. This was done seamlessly.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Deal Makers by Laura Lee is book Three in the Dealing With Love Series. This is the story of Charlotte 'Charlee ' Harris and Andrew 'Drew' Summer. I have read the previous books, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Drew is Charlee's brother good friend and so he has placed her in the off limits section but when they have a night Vegas they end up getting married. Thinking to get it annulled but their feelings and desires for each other start making that impossible.

I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book. I may have stalked Laura and bugged her until she finally gave in and sent it to my kindle.

Charlee and Drew... I don’t know who’s hotter. Their chemistry was off the charts explosive. Charlee is sexy, sarcastic, and just as big a perv as her brother. Drew, well Drew is kinda me in male form, it’s all about sex and food. And of course, Charlee.

This book came at just the right time to pull me out of a book slump. If you enjoy laugh out loud scenarios

He broke the "Bro Code"and dated his best friend's sister after a drunken night in Vegas but oh know he kept going back. This is a hilarious story with two individuals you will love to get behind because the characters are so deserving of each other. Will Drew and Charlee have their happily ever after?

Today I read many reviews and 99% of them said the books had either misunderstandings, miscommunication or immaturity. This one is the latter.
I have a horrible feeling this is going to be the new trend. 😱😳😟😖😣😫😩

Laura Lee has set the bar high for 2019. I could not of asked for a book better than this one, to start this year with. I am absolutely, positively in LOVE with Drew and Charlee's story. This Interconnected standalone was better than I could have imagined. Laura Lee completely captivates me with her writing. It is flawless, and so easy to read. Deal Makers is that book that hooks you from the very first page, and keeps you held hostage; willingly to the very last word that is on the page. I will ...more

This was acutely first read of 2019 so if this is any indication my year will be filed with light, funny and steam stories. I'm giving this one 4.5*

I loved Charlotte and her straightforward, take-no-shit attitude. When she sets her eyes on Drew she decided she'll have him no matter what. Saying that I was a bit disappointed when she tried to do the right thing – I mean who in their right mind would choose to leave a man like Drew??? I loved Drew – with all his musicales he really was one big

Drew is trying very hard not to violate the Bro Code, but Charlee is just too big a temptation. What could one night in Vegas hurt? After all what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, or not. When you are laughing before the end of the first chapter, you know you’re in for a great time. There is so much I could say about this book, but I don’t want to spoil any of this marvelous read. This tale is full of laughter, a few tears, and plenty of steamy romance, and in between a wonderfully engaging sto ...more

One of my favorite reads!

A definite must read! I'm not one to usually leave a review on a book I've read. But I absolutely love this series. Drew has always been in the background as one of the best friends, and I'm glad he finally got his chance at a story. Though I really like Brody and his jokes that had me cracking up in Deal Takers, I think Drew and Charlee are my new favorites! The chemistry that these two have.... all I can say is DAMN!!

Damn did I love this one! I LOVE best friends brother/sister stories, and this was a damn good one! I love the basis of these two not getting together was because of "bro code." Everyone knows that siblings are usually off limits, but sometimes you just can't help it!

I LOVED How Drew reacted to Charlee every time he saw her. It's as if she were his siren, even when she didn't talk. I thought it was funny that the best friend, Brody, hadn't ever brought Charlee around until recent years. Although

Oh My God, this book is so freakin hilarious!!!! Drew and Charlee bring the heat in this one!! I absolutely love brother's best friend/sister and this one was one of the best I've read. Even though it can be read as a standalone, each and every character bring something to the book. This one you have a crazy night in Vegas and now Drew and Charlee have to deal with the aftermath. It played out just like I thought it would but it was so much to keep reading to see how they got out of it. I must s ...more

The bratty Trio is back with the 3rd Big Peacock making an appearance -Andrew Summers. They are in Vegas for Riley and Devyn's kid free weekend.


His eyes land on Charlotte Harris, sister of his best buddy-Brody Harris and all his blood rushes to his little head!! This guy is HUGE, in all departments- North to South!! And since his 5th limb is bigger than his upper brain, it has a mind and thoughts of its own....seriously!

Dealing With Love has been an enjoyable series and I am sad to see it come to an end. I have enjoyed watching the friends and family come together to find their HEAs. Each book can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest you read them in order because each of the characters play a main role in all of the books.

Wow If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. I absolutely loved this book. Drew has always had an attraction to his best friend's sister Charlee. She's fun, very sexy and has a wicked tongue. But his friend Brodie would kill him if he got with his sister. They both want each other but they know Brodie would go nuclear if anything happened. But when they go away for a Bachelor/Bachelorette party in Vegas, all their resistance crumbles. One night of drinking and they end up married! Bo ...more

The thing I loved most about this book was the humor. I was laughing from beginning to end. This book left me in a good mood when I finished it. The characters are great and very entertaining. Plus we get to see how the couples from the previous books are doing. I so love that so much. Add in it's a brother's best fined troupe I was sold.

This is the third book in this awesome series, and is Drew and Charlee’s turn.

No spoilers; this is an absolute must read, you will not be disappointed!

Drew feels an instant attraction to Charlee, his best friend's sister when they meet. He tries very hard to keep the "bro-code" and stay away from her. When they are in Vegas, they get married and then have to figure out how to deal with the brother, their marriage and each other. This is a wonderful addition to the series!
