Review- Break Even by Lisa De Jong

Title- Break Even 
Author- Lisa De Jong
Genre- Contemporary Romance 
My Rating- 4.5 Stars 

Break Even


My story isn’t a love story … not the typical kind anyway.
As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming. 

Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons why I can't. Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I tried. 

Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed. I never knew two people who lived together could be so distant. But I’m not ready to give up on him.

One man wants to break me.
The other is just trying to get even. 

Both are lying to me.

***This is a standalone contemporary romance (though a little unconventional and twisted!)

My Review

Another great story from Lisa De Jong that I really enjoyed. 

The story is about Marley. She is married to Cole and together they run a law firm. Cole is determined to make the firm bigger and better and has been spending a lot of time away from Marley. She is beginning to feel a little neglected by Cole. Then enter River who wants some help setting up a nightclub and Marley came recommended by her husband. There is chemistry and attraction straight away between Marley and some great banter between them as Marley try's to fight the attraction, however she just can't seem to get him out of her head. He challenges her in way Cole hasn't for ages. Marley develops somewhat of a friendship with River when her husband isn't there but what happens when she learns the secrets both her husband and River have been keeping. 

Yes this is a love triangle romance story and I know some are put off reading such stories but I absolutely loved this one. It was so well written that you can't help but be sucked in. I was hooked from the beginning and was rooting for Marley to get her HEA. Marley was such a likeable characters and River was very swoon-worthy. 

Overall a great fast past, sexy read , with lots of twists and turns that will keep you hooked throughout. 

* I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review 


My eyes never leave my guest who’s dressed in a crisp navy blue suit, white shirt with the top two buttons undone, and expensive brown leather belt and shoes—the kind Cole works so hard for. River carries the look with ease.
“I hope I didn’t interrupt,” he says, sauntering toward one of my guest chairs.
“You’re early.”
He shrugs, relaxing into his seat. “I was bored, and I’ve noticed you like your coffee, so I thought I could buy you a cup. It’s the least I can do since you’re going to have to put up with me all day.”
“Who said you could barge into my office?”
He smirks. Stupid dimple. “Your secretary was missing so I helped myself.” His eyes stare into mine—too long and far too intense. “I didn’t mean to interrupt your phone call with Mr. Mason, by the way.”
“Something tells me you’re not feeling all that guilty.”
“You’re right, but I did learn something about you.” His elbow rests on the arm of the chair, index finger brushing his chiseled jaw.
“What’s that?” I ask, unable to look away.
“You profess love with indifference.”
My mouth falls open before I realize it. I quickly recover, searching for my voice. “What do you know about love?”
“Enough,” he says simply.
