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

DNF-ed this novel at 58% and I am 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 point...

I finally made it to 58% and I had to stop... Gosh, it hurts writing this soooo much

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
Mindy Lou's Book Review
This had equal amounts of good and not so good for me. In the beginning, I enjoyed their banter and how easy they were with each other. I loved how James was in hot pursuit of Lizzy from the moment he locked eyes with her. His constant flirting was fun.

I didn't like how tongue tied Lizzy kept getting. I just don't think smart women get stupid because of a mans looks. I did like that she didn't hide her returned attraction to him...too much. She resists due to the situation they were in but

Elizabeth Banks lives to 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

I am such a massive fan of Katy Evans and I was so excited to receive this book but having read it, I'm not sure what to make of it.
I really did enjoy the book but then there is a part of me that isn't so thrilled about it either.
So my opinion on Million Dollar Devil is smack dab in the middle...50/50.

I enjoyed the pace, I love the banter, I love the sexual chemistry but I felt like there was something missing in the storyline.

Overall, A solid 3.5 stars.

I am always ready for whatever this lady writes and Million Dollar Devil did sound right up my alley. I mean a sexy YouTube daredevil making a heiress to a fortune and business fall in love not with the perfect guy she has created but the actual man inside of that? Sounds great, right? And it surely was entertaining and sexy, as any word written by Katy Evans.

I loved the concept of this story. Take a average jimmy and turn him into the next best thing. But don't sleep with him when he turns out to be desirable and smoking hot.

I quite enjoy Katy Evans' Alphas...they're always so possessive and so extreme but it just wasn't the case with this book. I "think" that made me happy but one thing that did make me happy was the interest that was shown when James and Lizzy first meet.

Lizzy works for her Dad who owns a men's clothing line, mainly suits. She's tasked with finding the next Mr. It and is having trouble. She finds herself at this low end bar and that's where James shows up and immediately gets into a fist

Gosh this book was terrible. Has it really been so long since the release of Real , that my tastes have changed, and I can't stand Evans' writing anymore? Because I honestly cannot stand the writing, and the characters and literally everything, because even the worst books have something redeeming, and this had nothing.

MY RATING: 3/5 Stars

I received a copy from Thomas Allen & Sons in exchange for a honest review.

I'm not sure but I think this is my first Katy Evans novel and while I enjoyed the majority of the book, it's always disappointing when you know it could have been wrapped up faster than the execution. For example, our heroine, Lizzy needs a model fast for her father's billionaire dollar suit business so when she spots the hottest man alive, she goes in for the kill. James, a man who does stupid

If that's the blurb to catch the reader's attention, it had the opposite effect on me. What a ridiculous blurb. And there's this reviewer I follow who gives 5 stars to every single book. When she she gives a low rate, it's 4 stars and she didn't finish the book. I can only imagine the snooze fest. LMAO

And the heroine here is the kind that ruins the book. The author decided for a self enthralled snob bitch. Read this review and see for yourselves, saying she saved someone from the garbage; this

I am sad to say that this didn't work for me on any level. I didn't like the characters, the story had potential but it wasn't realised and the heat was on overload. I found I just couldn't continue. I have much respect for Katy Evans work that I have loved but this was not of the same brushstroke.

I was so happy to be able to review "Million Dollar Devil" - as I loved previous books by Katy Evans. And I know you can feel the BUT come - so here it is ...

BUT I am not sure what happened to the feelings ... this author was always about deep feelings for me - I can still remember crying over "REAL". Sure an author is allowed to change his style or genre. But there are different types of changes and just a little more than a week ago I was having a discussion with an author that felt her

I had a hard time believing this story. My first issue was that James and Lizzy were such dissimilar characters, I didn't believe they would have anything in common to sustain a relationship. I did not like how James's diction made him seem like an unintelligent jerk. I also did not believe the plot line. I immediately thought that a good way to go for the suit line was make an ordinary man extraordinary. Why would Lizzy even consider millionaires as models? Lame. Then Lizzy's father did a ...more
Million Dollar Devil is a sexy contemporary romance. The story takes place in Atlanta.

The narrators are Elizabeth/Lizzie and James/Jimmy (1st person POVs).

Lizzie (25) works for her dad. They are very rich (her nickname is the heiress). She is in charge of the launch of their new line of men's designer suits. She needs to find a model/spokesperson.

James is a daredevil who will do any dare for money. He has a youtube channel with lots of videos.

When I first read the blurb for Million Dollar Devil I was already sold on this story. Sadly for me, this novel didn’t entirely convinced me. I had difficulty for the first quarter of this book to be captivated by the storyline, but persevered in my reading. It paid off because I gradually connected more to the characters and enjoyed this book. Not my favorite from this author, but still pleasant.

This was an okay read. It had its moments and some likable characters, but there were also moments that fizzled our or seemed to be over the top.

My favorite part of the story is the daredevil. James was utterly delicious. I liked his persona and how he loved Charleigh. His ethical struggle made sense, and his insecurities matched his character. As with most heroes, his bedroom skills were in point, and the bedroom scenes with the heroine were

Hot damn! Who wants a gentleman when you can have a #ManBabe like him? Excuse me while I fan myself... Jimmy is a daredevil who has a YouTube following. He takes dares for money and he's not afraid of anything. But, will he do anything for money? A million dollars is a lot of money, right? Will he allow the beautiful heiress to polish his ruggedness into within an inch of its life, give him a makeover, and drape him in

Million Dollar Devil by Katy Evans was just one of those stories where you either love it or you hate it.

The author and the blurb was what quickly drew me to the book but I was completely let down with the heroine. She's an heiress trying to please her father. No backbone. The things she said about the hero being "garbage" and a "sewer rat" among other names and multiple times throughout the novel was uncalled for. Even though she apologizes at the end, the damage was done.

I'm a fan of Katy's books and have been looking forward to this read but it didn't consume me like I was hoping for. I did enjoy this book, James "Jimmy" was a cocky, sexy, flirty YouTube daredevil that caught the attention of Elizabeth the gorgeous, sweet, heiress looking for the next face of her father's company. These two were full of witty banter and explosive chemistry that you felt in every interaction, yet Lizzy tried to fight the connection at every turn until she couldn't. Plus you get ...more

You take risks, and you show people who you are and what you stand for, and if they don’t like it, fuck ’em. You make every day mean something.
