Big-city sophistication meets carnal hunger in this devilish contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

Heir apparent to her father’s company, Lizzy Banks needs a man. The perfect man. But when the rich “fundbabies” she usually rubs shoulders with prove impossible to hire, she takes a chance on a raw beast of a man salvaged from the wreckage of a bar brawl.

James Rowan earns a modest income as a YouTube daredevil, but he can’t refuse Lizzy’s million dollar deal. As she polishes his rough edges, creating a sophisticated gentleman fit for the highest circles of society, not only does she bring out the perfect manit’s like she’s making the man of her dreams. How can she resist?

Though Lizzy loves seeing James in his clothesand out of themhe isn’t the kind of man you bring home to Daddy. Her father’s disapproval and the pressure of the campaign have her eyeing the straight and narrow, but Lizzy’s finding it awfully hard to resist the devil on her shoulder

Lizzy is 25 years old. She's been groomed to be her father's heir at their man's clothing company all her life - even though she's 'only' a girl. She has to prove to her dad that she's really got what it takes. She needs to make this upcoming new line a mega success. She needs the perfect male model for these new suits. It pays one million dollars and all the rich suit-wearing idiots she asked didn't want the job.
Enter James. Jimmy. She meets him in a dive bar she accidentally stumbles into one night. He's a professional youtube daredevil. He's super hot. In a non-suit-wearing-non-gentleman kind of way. It would be a lot of work to get him to look like a million dollars ... but he's her last chance.
Let the fun times begin ...


Well, that was adorable. And funny and sparky and sexy.
I loved reading it!
Izzy and James are just too cute.
So not from the same world, but still perfect for each other.
I loved how James needs and wants to be there for his little brother and how he wants something better for the future. But he doesn't want pity and charity ...
Izzy could give them so much material things, but they just want to be loved. To belong to a family again. Ugh, it was so sweet.
I also loved the whole My Fair Lady / Pretty Woman / Cinderella thing of trying to turn a bearded hottie into a suave gentleman.
All very adorable - I wouldn't mind watching this on tv one day!
Hashtag Eyecandy Deluxe! ☺

I just saw all these not very flattering reviews on goodreads!? No idea why people don't like this story. Weird. Sure, it's not the next Great American Novel - and we've read stories like this one many times before - but it was really cute and fun and sweet ... no idea why all the hate. 

MILLION DOLLAR DEVIL was an adorable & sexy & fun love story! Run to your nearest amazon for your own James! This one is mine! MINE!!! 

Now I'm ready for Luke's book! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

I liked the premise of this book, and I really really wanted to love it.

However, I did like it, but didn't love it.

I think for me, the main thing I didn't like about he story was Lizzy.  I just didn't feel any kind of connection with her, just didn't really like her at all. And acting like a 3 year old chucking a tantrum when you get the sh!ts is not going to endear you to me - at all.

James.  Oh, how I loved the idea of James.  And for the most I adored the guy, I adored how he is with family and friends.  But man, FFS, the forever coming on the the woman just got to be too much, and I just wanted to yell at him through the pages - but this could just be me.

Yes, there was plenty of steam and attraction between the pair, but seriously, for me, they just didn't fit and no matter what, I could not see them together.

This is going to be one of those stories that Katy Evans readers are going to either love or hate.

This was an anomaly for me, as I have enjoyed all the other Katy Evans books I have read in the past.
