Deal Breaker: Billionaire Bosses Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I read it because the excerpt was from the hero's pov, and I liked his voice. The whole story alternates between hero and heroine, with headings letting us know who's turn it is.
Both Nash and Nixie suffered loss from 9-11; Nixie lost her parents and went to live with a family friend, and Nash lost his brother to the Air Force and the war on terror.
Nash was an interesting hero, who started as an unpleasant controlling steamroller and emerged as more of a complicated man trying to outrun his demons. Nixie, on the other hand, became isolated and non-confrontational, which led her to run and hide when her ex became stalkerish.
A wrong turn into an alley, Nash saving Nixie from muggers, and the tale of the Knight in tarnished armor and the pseudo-maiden in some stress begins.
The author took her time getting them together, even though there's plenty of insta-lust running through both their minds from the get-go. Both Nash and Nixie had to work through their hangups to get to the HEA. Even though Nash came off as a domineering bully at the beginning, as we got to know him better, his intentions and why he acted thus made him more sympathetic. Nixie bothered be more. She had a TSTL moment towards the end, but her background made her reactions more believable.
Despite the cliches mentioned above, this turned out to be an interesting story with complicated characters. Overall, I really liked it.
In this book Nash Knight is a self-made billionaire and part-time boxer. He has come from nothing to something earning him the title the Black Knight of Wall Street. He is cold and calculated.
Nixie is running from her past and she happens to run into a dark alley unaware of the dangers that are following behind her. When she is attacked a good-looking man comes to her rescue.
Nash sees what is transpiring as he is leaving the gym. Rushing in to save the damsel in distress he finds her being attacked and rescues her. She starts to yell at him and then she passes out from blood loss and shock. As Nash carries a unconsious Nixie to his home to be looked at by his on call doctor, he struck by how beautiful she is. He wonders what else she may be running from.
When Nixie wakes in a strangers bed all she can think of is how to get away. She is scared and this beautiful alpha male is more trouble than she needs in her life.
This book was fantastic. The characters were so charismatic and I just fell in love with their story. I believe Eva is delusional and I wanted to slap the crap out of her. I really wished that Nixie did not back down from her the way she did. But Eva knew what she was doing. Very conniving.
Nash is that perfect knight in shining armor. "Nash, my knight in shining armor who insisted his cape was black despite it being as white as his perfect teeth." He has a very hard time admitting that he can and is in love with Nixie. Nixie is a very stubborn and strong-willed individual with a run for the hills approach to anything that scares her. Together they are perfect for each other.
This book was a page turner from the very beginning. I was hooked easily. It had loads of drama, suspense and humor. I am looking forward to reading more by Tara Leigh. Even though this is a second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone. A very entertaining and exciting read.
