About the Book:
Natalie, a young art student in New York City, is struggling to pay her bills when a friend makes a suggestion: Why not go online and find a sugar daddy—a wealthy, older man who will pay her for dates and even give her a monthly allowance? Lots of girls do it, Nat learns. All that’s required is to look pretty and hang on his every word. Sexual favors are optional. Though more than thirty years her senior, Gabe, a handsome corporate finance attorney, seems like the perfect candidate, and within a month, they are madly in love. At least, Nat is…Gabe already has a family, whom he has no intention of leaving. So when he abruptly ends things, Nat can’t let go. But Gabe’s not about to let his sugar baby destroy his perfect life. What was supposed to be a mutually beneficial arrangement devolves into a nightmare of deception, obsession, and, when a body is found near Gabe’s posh Upper East Side apartment, murder. Emotionally powerful and packed with page-turning suspense, The Arrangement delves into the sordid, all-too-real world of shadowy relationships between wealthy, powerful men and the young women who are caught in their web.

I love when I find new Canadian authors to enjoy and I have a feeling Robyn Harding is going to be one of my favourites!

This book was original and the story so unique. A twisty plot of love and betrayal written from two points of view, Nat the sugar baby and Gabe the sugar daddy. The main character, Natalie, draws you into her personal and social relationships and you’re compelled to keep reading to find out what happens next. The author did a wonderful job at sucking me right into the story and the twists that come along with it are unbelievably shocking yet refreshing at the same time. I honestly could not get enough of the book.

Stunning psychological suspense filled with twists and turn, and those twists intensify toward the end. It’s hard to be surprised anymore; this book surprised me and I was not expecting the ending at all. Well written, intricate, interesting and unexpected and the final reveal took me by surprise.

Thank you NetGalley, Robyn Harding Simon & Schuster Canada and Gallery-Scout Press for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
