⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great writing and a quick, sexy story

The Deal (London Suits, #0.5)

As a novella, The Deal is a complete story told at lightning speed. I loved The Truce, the first full-length book in this series, and we’re introduced to Ethan and Avery there so I was intrigued to read their story. This certainly doesn’t disappoint, though it also doesn’t hold a candle to The Truce. Filled with drama and steam, The Deal is much more about how two coworkers can make the transition to lovers than it is about them actually falling in love. The writing is great, the characters are likeable, the steam is incredibly sexy, and while the story does move quickly, it also feels complete.

The Deal follows Ethan, a workaholic whose main focus in life is building his business. With his sister’s wedding coming up, his mother is meddling with his love life so he decides to take a fake date to act as a buffer. He thinks Avery is the perfect person to take because they have a great working relationship and he knows they won’t need to worry about getting attached. But seeing each other outside of work makes these two total opposites realize there might be something more there, and Ethan isn’t sure how to handle that.

Anyone who liked The Truce will love seeing how Ethan and Avery fell for each other, but this can easily be read as a standalone. Chronologically, this story comes first but I consider it more of a bonus to the series so they can be read in either order (and I loved seeing a few of the characters we came to know in The Truce). Steele’s writing style is so easy to read and get lost in that I can’t wait to see what she writes next. There are plenty of stories to be told in this series and I’m hoping we’ll get many more.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
