ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review I think the premise of the story was interesting, and I looked forward to reading how everything would play out However, it felt a bit monotone to me I couldn t really get into the story, I was reading without being engaged with the characters Especially, Lizzy Banks was someone I could not relate to or find sympathetic I also didn t like the whole transforming the daredevil into a gentleman I think it was a bit too much in regards to marketing men s suits The attraction between Lizzy and James was there from the start but the hot and cold attitude of Lizzy got old quick I didn t really connect or care about their relationship They didn t feel like a good match Also the drama towards the end was a bit too much and that didn t help the story for me either On the other hand, James was a very intriguing and great hero, I think I would ve enjoyed reading about him in a different book and with a different heroine He has gone through some very horrible things and does his best to take care of his younger brother The scenes where he was in his natural environment wereinteresting to me The scenes where he was together with Lizzy, didn t grab me as much.There are many books I read and loved by Katy Evans, especially heremotional ones But there are a couple of them I just won t pick up because I know I won t like it It really is a matter of taste, and I should ve known I wouldn t like this one Honestly, Million Dollar Devil was just not my cup of tea It wason the light and fun side, and for me those reads are mostly a hit or miss Unfortunately, it was a miss this time, and maybe I wasn t in the right mood So please if this book sounds like something you would enjoy reading, then I definitely recommend you to pick it up. I don t think this is news, but KE s books have become sexier with each year.And Million Dollar Devil is no exception The couple might not jump into bed until later in the book, but all the talk of sex, and constant thinking of sex makes this book sinfully SEXY Truly, the simmer is INSANE There is no letup The constant level of sizzle should satisfy any romance reader who likes their books to be HOT.Surprisingly daredevil James, was much sweeter, honorable, and waydevoted than I expected No bad boy alert this time Just a guy that loves dares, adrenaline and a good time But on the inside he was loyal, and a guy you could trust and depend on And apparently he looked HOT in a suit Would have loved to see the ad campaign pictures for sure.The story on its own wasn t 100% believable Yearlong habits are hard to break in only a couple weeks Speech, mannerism, and personality can t just be swiped clean and reinvented But I took it for what it was a romance novel with a HOT lead who had the hots for the heroine.Because that was clear from the very first moment they laid eyes on No surprise there.The heroine wasn t exactly my type of heroine Her father was one of the reasons why she wasn t as strong as I like them She was missing a bit of spine and I like my heroines feisty and ball kicking awesome.But all in all it was a decent story Entertaining, and the simmer definitely worked for me, even if the constant sex talk got a little on my nerves at the end Because if you boil it down to the heart of it, the story started to feel two dimensional it was being reduced to a couple that wanted to have sex, until they finally got to it Since that s pretty much all they did thinking and talking about sex until they finally had sex lol.ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest

please her father, so she does not want to disappoint him when she decides to look for a model for the new line of formal menswear But instead of getting a millionaire, Elizabeth gets James Rowan who is dedicated to performing risky physical challenges on YouTube in exchange for money.The story starts well, and I liked it at first, but then she continues playing up with her zero self esteem and becomes an unbearable character.James, you are an awesome character man James is view spoiler a hardworking, decent man who takes care of his brother and even welcomes his cousin to support her It does not fit in my head how this woman who has had her daddy all her life, and does not even manage her accounts because daddy pays them, and allows her dad to manage her life , can despise him and treat him like James is worth nothing hide spoiler 4.5 STARS ARC Generously Provided by Author He s beautiful, and though I should feel some pride in paying a part in bringing out this man s beauty, all I can feel is a knot in my stomach A knot I can t quite seem to loosen, no matter how much I try It s starting to hurt to look at him.I had a hard time putting this book down The story and characters grabbed a hold of me from the prologue and I found myself enjoyably lost in this incredibly steamy and angsty romance Katy Evans has created yet another Hero with devilishly handsome looks

sees Lizzy in his friend s bar, he recognizes the Banks heiress He s instantly intrigued and undeniably attracted to her James agrees to become the new model of her clothing line for a million dollars, which he plans to use to provide a better life for his younger brother.James doesn t hide his attraction to Lizzy, and while she is beyond tempted to take him up on his offer, she tells him that they can never go beyond an employer employee relationship because her father would waste no time in getting rid of him if he ever found out about them Eventually, the temptation becomes too much

beyond disappointed with the outcome I am truly saddened about the outcome of this novel Maybe it s because I hyped it up too much, but I knew that at 12% through I would not be able to get through it But because I have so much respect for Katy, I just had to continue I almost threw my kindle to the wall at 33% through, but I kept going This was my head at that pointI finally made it to 58% and I had to stop Gosh, it hurts writing this soooo much because I am or maybe I used to be A fan of Katy s work After this book, I think I will have to take a break from her writing It would not be fair for me to rate this novel and talk about it in thorough details since I did not finish it Maybe this will be the ideal novel for other book lovers and Katy Evans followers, but for me I had to pass out on it I did not want to drag it out and let it sit on my shelf collecting dust ARC galley kindly provided by Montlake Romance, in exchange for an honest reviewFollow Me On Blog Instagram Facebook
