Trying to decide whether I d rather spend time with Gabe or Natalie is like asking whether I d rather be shot or stabbed Both of these people are hideous and it s fabulous.This book is like a Lifetime movie on a Saturday afternoon with a big bowl of popcorn, some Hot Tamales, my kids doing something else and my husband off golfing It s indulgent and too much but in that great way that goes so well with slouchy socks and sweatpants.Gabe is a vile, disgusting 1 percenter looking for a young side piece and Natalie is a desperate 21 year old with a
Welcome to the sugar bowl I really, really wanted to read this I made a special trip to NetGalley to request it and of course, because I can never request just one, I now have like 12 arcs than I need or have time for, but so it goes I loved the idea of a sugar daddy sugar baby relationship I wanted to read about that dynamic and feel it and love it in all it s twisted glory.But something important is missing for me here, and I ve decided it s authenticity.Nat, our protagonist, simply does not read like a desperate 21 year old sugar baby I couldn t help but think people this age don t speak like this through so much of this, that it really took me out of the story Also I can t respect her at all Not because she s a sugar baby I will never find this phrase less ridiculous to type , but because she has no regard for anyone but herself When she finds out her sugar daddy is married, she fights to make it work behind the wife s back Her oh so close friend who introduces her to the sugar baby life has an awful situation, leaves town, and though she s a big part of the first half, Nat literally never thinks about her or mentions her again She s kind of not a human being I can root for And that s what he needed blind devotion He got off on it His enormous ego could only be fed by pure adoration.He was a narcissist A sociopath A monster So why did she still miss him I also felt the writing was odd and stilted in a lot of ways And
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 bills Nat is stressed, her roommates can t stand her and she s worried about being kicked out After venting to her classmate, Ava, about her current situation, Ava tells her about a Sugar Daddy website Nat wants nothing to do with it at first but she comes to realize she doesn t have much of a choice.Enter Gabe the no strings sugar daddy to the rescue I loved hearing Gabe
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 relationship gone haywire, I knew I needed to read it It s not every day when you read about these kinds of relationships but they re really everywhere The Arrangement showcases how common these types of arrangements truly are, but this time, we get a voyeuristic view into a world that is uncommonly talked about The Arrangement is truly Robyn Harding s best work yet.Natalie Nat is an art student at NYU, living in Bushwick, Brooklyn with her two roommates, and living paycheck to paycheck Nat is behind on her rent, and utility bills, and her roommates are not as supportive as she would like them to be They feel as if she parades men around the apartment too much, and her drinking has spiraled out of control Nat needs money, and she needs it fast While at school, Nat befriends a fellow colleague in one of her classes This colleague is dressed impeccably, and when they study together at her Chelsea apartment, Nat realizes that this chick is rich When she finds out that her classmate has
I am so excited to share this book with all of you I hope you ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it Thank you 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 was really neat the author mentioned in the acknowledgments that she actually set up an online account and was able to interview actual sugar babies It s funny because for me to love a book I usually have to like the characters but none aside from Oleg were very likeable OR I have to connect with at least one of them which I did not BUT the storyline had me absolutely hooked By the time I hit around page 200 there was definitely no putting the book down and I knew I was in for a late night.After reading two five star books in a row from Ha
Damn that was like a cool drink of water in the middle of a desert I raced thru this in a matter of hours never getting bored for a second No bookmark needed You hear a lot about these type of dating sites Some may say they are not safe Some use them and have no issues Harding took a look at these dating apps and developed a story that may freak you out a bit.It started out with a solid development and slow build into the main plot Gabe was a decent guy Treated his girls right Stand up family man with issues he had to deal with at home Nat is an immature girl learning to live in the big city Lost Impressionable Broke.What I liked about the story was the fact it is not a far fetched idea The author subtly built the plot, dripping hints and issues here and there The dating and how sweet Gabe treated Nat Then we get the feeling of little bit of mental instability here and there You know something big is going to happen.And then it starts going downhill.I have to say I was very disappointed in the last quarter and the ending While there were several surprises and turn of events, it just felt very fla
The Arrangement was exactly what I needed a quick read with an intriguing premise and a satisfying twist at the end Natalie is a 21 year old art student in New York City, who is struggling to pay for her rent and tuition even with her part time job When her friend suggests she consider becoming a sugar baby, she is immediately repulsed by the idea But when a series of events leave her even desperate for cash, she decides that a couple of no strings attached dates with wealthy older men might be the solution to her problems One date with Gabe, an attractive and powerful attorney, turns to two, and eventually to an arrangement and maybe even Until the relationship spirals out of control I loved the glimpse into the taboo sugar daddy baby world, and it was obvious that Harding did her research prior to writing this book I could have read just about Nat s initial experiences and dates, but I understand why Gabe was introduced so quickly Both Nat and Gabe are unlikeable characters Nat because she is immature and only thinks of herself, and Gabe because he is downright vile but their unlikability is almost necessary to the story This book is light and entertaining, and while I found Nat and Gabe s relationship and chemistry a bit rushed, the rest of the story was satisfying and compulsively readable Harding is a master of writing books that are impossible to p
