Review: Million Dollar Devil by 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 man—it’s like she’s making the man of her dreams. How can she resist?
Though Lizzy loves seeing James in his clothes—and out of them—he 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…

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 were more interesting 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 her more emotional 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 was more on 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.
