REVIEW – MILLION DOLLAR DEVIL (Million Dollar, #1) by Katy Evans




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 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…

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 and heart melting charisma. The chemistry between James and Lizzy just about had me dying with anticipation for them to finally give in to the temptation. They might be from completely different worlds but there’s no denying how they fit perfectly together.



Elizabeth Banks is in line for the role of CEO of her father’s corporation, Banks LTD. Her mission is to find the face of their new men’s clothing line. But when all of her top candidates reject her offer she’s almost at the end of her rope, until she meets a ruggedly handsome bad boy on the wrong side of town. She thinks he has the potential of being the next face of Banks LTD.

James Rowan is somewhat of a local social media celebrity. He performs outrageous stunts for money on his YouTube channel which has over 200,000 followers. The minute he 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 for the two to ignore and when passion takes over and lines are crossed, will the end game be the same for James and Lizzy? Can they go back to the way things were? Or will they risk losing everything for love?

Here are my overall ratings:

Heroes: 5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
