For Sophie, crushing on her best friend’s brother was old news, and Max never stopped thinking about what could be even though his sister’s best friend was off-limits. When they find themselves at a destination wedding, does their first kiss end up being their last? Readers will devour this best friend's sibling romance from Julie Archer. The Holiday Springs Resort series open for the holidays and DEAL BREAKER is now live!
Your best friends’ brother is off limits, until love is in the air at a wedding and their long-time attraction cannot be fought.
I loved the fun and humor in Deal Breaker. I mean the romance was great, but I laughed so many times. The first kiss, the sister’s response, the kind of morning after, and so much more. Deal Breaker is a fun and entertaining book to read. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. The story was not long but it gave a whole story of the childhood of Sophie and Max. It then continued into their adulthood and the wedding where it all came to happen.
Holiday Springs Resorts is a fun location and I love that a series of books is being set there. I cannot wait to read more of this wonderful series.
Copyright @Julie Archer 2020Autumn’s voice chimed from the depths of my bag. “Soph? Sophie? Are you still there?” I scrabbled to retrieve the phone. “Yes, sorry. Did you hear that? It’s totally unheard of for him to offer me an early finish.” She laughed. “You should have taken it. We could have had coffee, and you could give me tips for my date.” I echoed her laughter. I was the last person she should be taking dating advice from. “Now, where were we?” “Travel plans for the wedding. You, me, Jodie.” And Max, I added silently. Ugh. Why was I thinking about him now? “Max has to be there early, for the rehearsal dinner or something, otherwise he’d drive us.” I drifted off into a fantasy of spending several hours in a confined space with Max Coady, watching him drive, the muscles in his forearms working as he took control of the wheel, breathing in his aftershave…reluctantly I shook myself back to the present. Seriously, I had to get this crush under control. Maybe I’d meet someone at the wedding who would sweep me off my feet. I sighed. Who was I kidding? Unrequited love was a bitch. Of course, I couldn’t tell Autumn this. Not since she’d decided at the age of fourteen that I couldn’t ever—EVER—date her brother. I’d had to keep my fantasies under control since then. Maybe that was one of the reasons I hadn’t managed to find a serious boyfriend. Because no one ever compared to Max. “Soph? Where are you?” Autumn’s voice broke into my reverie. “I asked what time you want to meet on Friday. It’s going to take us around an hour and a half to get there.” “Ha, longer if Jodie’s in charge of directions.” I half giggled, half grimaced. I’d been on enough road trips with Jodie to know we needed to add at least another half an hour onto our trip time. She had an uncanny knack of getting close to a place, but not actually to it. There had been plenty of times we’d driven past where we were meant to be simply because she couldn’t work out how to get us there. “Do we have a map?” “Didn’t you get the ton of information Brianna sent with the invite? I reckon there’s a map in there with directions from every state in the US!” Autumn laughed. I thought back to the day the invitation pack had plopped onto my doormat. Thicker than a college acceptance pack, it contained every single piece of information about the day. Not to mention a few pictures of throwbacks to the proposal, engagement party, and bachelor and bachelorette parties. Apart from finding out the date, I’d shoved the rest of it in a drawer in my kitchenette. I was still finding glittery horseshoes in my apartment weeks after the damn invite had been delivered. “Well, good. Because with Jodie driving, we’ll probably need them!”
About JulieJulie Archer is the author of contemporary romance featuring rock stars, small towns, a healthy dose of angst, some steamy times, and always a happy ever after! When not writing, she can usually be found binge-watching teen drama series on Netflix, or supporting Spurs (the English Premier League football team, not the American basketball team!) from my armchair, and running around after her two feline children, Corey and Elsa. Real angst. Real romance.
