Break Even by Lisa DeJong…..Release Blitz & Review

Break Even-high

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!)


Amazon Purchase:








I don’t even know where to start with this one. Yes, there is cheating in this book. I know that is not everyone’s cup of tea. But I beg you to give this book a try even if you are not a fan of cheating. You won’t regret it.

Marley seems to have everything she always wanted – a great job, loving husband in Cole and a great life. However, she is becoming more unhappy with each passing day. She is starting to feel more alone than she ever has.

Cole is starting to put the job before everything in else in order to get them where they want the law firm to be. Marley just wants to come first in Cole’s life. In order to help her husband, she takes on a case he was working on.

River Holtz is the new client that Marley is going to be working with. River is cocky and arrogant and repulses Marley immediately. It takes everything in her to be able to continue working with him just so she can help her husband out.

And then….

The line between right and wrong blurred until I couldn’t see it.

I have always enjoyed Lisa’s books and this one is no different. It’s a different kind of story that she normally writes, but she wrote it exquisitely And yes, as I said before there is infidelity, but it’s not what you would expect.

Somehow, I became a pawn in two different games, and I wasn’t a willing player in either.

There are quite a few twists and turns in this story, a few that I had not expected. Lisa delivers a very quick and fast paced story that will keep you pondering the outcome. Trust me, this book will have your jaw dropping by the end.

Bravo Lisa. You wrote this story beautifully and as always, I can’t wait to read your next book!



“What?” he asks, leaning his elbows on the table.
“This,” I say, gesturing between us, “would never last more than one day.”
The ultra-cocky grin he had on his face the first day I met him in my office is back. “You might think that, but there’s something I know that you haven’t figured out yet.”
“And what’s that?”
He closes some of the space between us. “Every inch of your perfect little body is aching to know what my hands would feel like. Every. Fucking. Inch. You hold a shield up, thinking it will keep me away, but there’s nothing I don’t see.”
My mouth hangs open. He’s so wrong, but he’s so right. River is unlike anyone I’ve ever met. He’s untouchable—unobtainable—and I’m married. The holes in my marriage have led me to think about things—him—in a way I normally wouldn’t. When Cole touches me, he just doesn’t reach deep enough. It’s left a void. I hate to admit it, but that’s just the way things are.
Before I can come up with a rebuttal, the waitress brings us our plates and sets them in front of us. Staring down, I pretend my salad is the most interesting thing I’ve ever seen. The strawberries and blueberries make it pretty.
“Did I strike a nerve?” he asks, sliding the plate of fries so they’re within my view.
“You’re on every single one of them.”
He laughs sadistically. “But I’m right.”
“You’re wrong. I wouldn’t let you near me even if I were single.” I pick up a piping hot fry and carefully bite into it.
“If you were single, I guarantee I’d have you in my condo naked right now.”



  1. Alrighty then…I’m going to ponder over this. I’m not a fan of breaking martial vows, either. However, you review is most intriguing…hence the pondering….Thank you…
