Five years ago, I spent the night with my brother's best friend.
Only he doesn't know it.
Now he's back in my life. In need of a phony wife.
And I know I'm going to sin again...

I enjoyed reading Marilyn and Jesse story.
The Deal is the third book in the Manhattan Nights series, it could be read as a standalone but I really recommend you to read the previous ones too.
Marilyn, an Hollywood actress, and Jesse, a lawyer, met at a party years ago,they instantly felt a burning chemistry but they chose to ingnore it because it was too complicated for Heath's best friend to pursue his little sister.
Now years later they meet again in Manhattan and they find out they didn't for
Marilyn is a feisty Hollywood star and man I do mean feisty, you can bet your best pair of Doc Martens on that one, she's left LA and fled back to the safety of Manhattan after a few questionable selfies are leaked to the press by someone who hacked her phone. There while evading the paps and catching her bre ...more
I really liked how the story progressed and we were able to get insights in to both characters:
Marilyn: We know from previous books is a close friend of Brett, sister to Heath, Hollywood Wild Child, and basically owns everything. The reader was able to get a much more detailed and in depth look, which I have to say I think tha ...more
This book was filled with secrets and angst and it took an emotional turn for Marilyn that I wasn't expecting but it made her become relatable and lovable to me, the reader.
Both characters have issues with their pasts and self-doubts that they try to overcome with their own vices. Who knew that what they really needed was each other?
This book sucked me in from the ver ...more

I snorted right along with Kayla!
But my point is that Jesse and Marilyn blew me away! Their secrets, their lies and their half truths all of it was exactly what made them uniquely them! And it was the second chance for them to get it right even if they didn’t get it right away! Jesse and Mare had their demons to fight, but even if their engagement was fake Jesse wanted to fight right along with Marilyn and actions speak louder th ...more

Seemingly everything but oh in the hottest way ever. I feel like I’ve been waiting for Jesse and Marilyn my entire life. Seriously. While they’ve never been the main characters, they’ve Leah’s been in the front of my mind. Natalie’s style of writing is a mix of sensual and angst. Guaranteed to make the reader squeeze their thighs, pant a little and be on the edge of their seat. This book has humor, ease of flow and certainly STEA ...more

And this brother's best friend/forbidden romance has been my favorite so far. I was so looking forward to getting more of Jesse after meeting him in the last book...and I was not disappointed. This one was steamy, intriguing, frustrating and fun.
It lagged a little, and I'm still feeling a little like I've missed something when it comes to how all of these characters fit together with the big bad father figure. But it hasn't diminished the HEAs.
I loved how this book follows the story line of the other two books. You already know the characters from the other books.
Definitely a good read!
