    Thanks to Gallery Books #partner for gifting me a copy of The Arrangement by Robyn Harding! I really enjoyed Her Pretty Face last year so I was super excited to get to The Arrangement!First of all, if there is a Sugar Daddy / Baby involved I don’t care what the genre is, I’M READING IT! Well, not fantasy 👋🏼. Nat is a young artist going to college and trying survive in the city. She works in a bar for some money but can barely pay the bi...

    Robyn Harding's been in the game for a couple of years now, and she's become a mainstream success after her debut of the 2017 smash contemporary mystery The Party. I got around to catching up on Harding's work last summer after her other hit novel Her Pretty Face was released. Her writing was impeccable, and perfect for summer relaxation reading. When I heard Robyn was coming out with another book, this time being about a sugar daddy/baby relatio...

    Last year I devoured Harding’s book Her Pretty Face and was recommending it like crazy to anyone that would listen, so when I heard she had a new book coming out I didn’t even bother to read the blurb I just knew I needed it in my life. WOAH what a fun thrill ride this was. I am not super knowledgeable about the whole sugar daddy/sugar baby arrangement world but am always very intrigued to read about different lifestyles. I also thought it wa...

    Robyn Harding is my very favorite author and The Arrangement was my most anticipated book of 2019!! I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be gifted this Advanced Readers Copy.

Simply put...this book is AMAZING!!Here’s the plot...Natalie is a young, 21 year old art student in NYC. She struggles to make ends meet, pay her tuition, and not piss o...

    Thank You, Gallery Books for gifting me a copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.I love Robyn Harding, I love everything she has written, not only is she incredibly talented and a master of her craft, she is genuinely a very nice person. I have loved getting to chat with her! And how awesome is it, that myself and a bunch of my blogging friends are in the acknowledgements of this book?I was so excited to start...

    I was delighted to get this ARC as I have read Harding's previous novels and loved them! This one was decidedly different but SO interesting! I will admit to watching a couple of (poorly done) Lifetime movies about this subject but this book seemed so realistic as we watch college-student Natalie get drawn into the often-dangerous and seedy web of Sugar Daddies. Having already broken up with a nightmarish, stalker boyfriend, she just wants to be ...

    Robyn Harding does it again with an awesome domestic thriller! I loved the premise of this book, so different than the usual wife & husband/odd relationship plot. THIS book is about a young college student, and a wealthy, married man. The story starts off telling the reader that a murder has happened, but the murder of who?The protagonist, Nat, was such an unusual college student - dealing with school, no money, judgemental friends... but as she ...
  • Cathy Branciforte
    When I read the description of this book, I knew I had to read it and it did not disappoint! My first look into the Sugar Daddy/ Sugar Baby lifestyle was very interesting. The characters and their world were so well developed, that I was completely lost in the story and could understand how these types of situations could actually happen. Told from the different points of view of the different characters, the story moves along quickly to its (sli...

    Review to come closer to pub date, but I absolutely loved this book. My first 5-star read of 2019!
  • Janet
    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. A Pretty Woman tale turns toxic and deadly in this provocative and riveting thriller of sex, obsession, and murder from Robyn Harding, the “master of domestic suspense” (Kathleen Barber) and the USA TODAY b...
  • Andrea Pole
    The Arrangement by Robyn Harding is another five star offering from a writer who has very quickly established herself as a must read author for me. This is a pulse-pounding tour de force of intrigue, sex, lies, and betrayals, and I could not turn the pages fast enough. Natalie is a young college student living in New York and struggling to pay the bills, when a fellow student introduces her to the Sugar Bowl, a network that connects sugar daddies...
  • Nova
    I thought this book was perfectly crafted. Harding spent the perfect amount of time on all aspects; not dragging things out unnecessarily or being too vague. I love the way Robyn Harding writes her mystery/thrillers, if they could even be categorized as such. Her books always make sense. The resolution always seems realistic, unlike most other mystery/thrillers i've read. This book surprised me, engaged me and I read it in less than 24 hours. I c...
  • Lalitha
    Uneven characterization and pacing made The Arrangement a tedious read; I was also incredibly disappointed in the author's reductive depictions of social justice work and intersectionality. ***SPOILER***Now, these reductive descriptions of social justice, race, and intersectionality might've been Harding's way of portraying Gabe as unlikeable. However, given the weak and inconsistent characterization, it felt as though Gabe was simply a vehicle f...

    Edgy, unique with so many layers. I’m very fascinated by her writing because she creates such deep and dark characters. The topic is unique and its execution was well woven together.
