In his father’s eyes, Dylan Deveraux is just a playboy spending the family fortune on prostitutes, alcohol, and fast cars. And it isn’t even with the cars his father produces. Because of that, his father forbids his presence at the ball that will mark the launch of the US plant of his company, strategically scheduled on Valentine’s Day.
Hayley Allen is a failing model with the worse luck in the world. She always ends up in the hands of cruel designers and photographers. At least, that’s what she tells herself. Better than admit having a weak nervous system that always reacted during her gigs. Desperate, she would do anything to help her career.
Dylan shows up at her door, wasted as usual. Friends for a long time, Hayley is the only one able to put up with Dylan’s bullsh**, and he appreciates that, but not the way her heart wants.
Even though he doesn’t believe in Valentine’s Day, Dylan has an idea for his father’s ball. When he suggests a deal to Hayley, a deal that could finally put her in the spotlight of success and help him impress his father, she doesn’t hesitate. Even if it means hurting her heart a little more.

About the Author:
While Juliana Haygert dreams of being Wonder Woman, Buffy, or a blood elf shadow priest, she settles for the less exciting—but equally gratifying—life of a wife, mother, and author. Thousands of miles away from her former home in Brazil, she now resides in Connecticut and spends her days writing about kick-ass heroines and the heroes who drive them crazy.

My Fair and Honest Review in exchange for an ARC of this fab romance novel!

Playboy millionaire bad boy. 
Struggling up and coming model with anxiety issues. 
What happens when they start becoming more than friends? This book, that's what! 
Juliana Haygert's New Adult novella is barely over a hundred pages long, which makes a perfect read for late night or while you're waiting for a couple of hours in a doctor's office (that's actually when I read this book, lol). It moves very quickly and I honestly was never bored with the story - which is one of the reasons I really enjoy reading novellas. You get right down to the meat of the story really quickly. 

I really felt for Hayley (other than the fact that she's a supermodel and I'm not, we could totally identify...yup) in the beginning, even though I felt like she was being a little difficult when it came to denying her feelings about Dylan. On the flip side, Dylan WAS a huge jerk. A womanizing, partying, spoiled rich boy. I never was really able to sympathize for him, because partying is a huge turnoff for me...but he did come to his senses in the end, and that's the kind of character growth I love to see! 
Overall, this is a satisfying NA romantic novella!


Get fictional - it's fun! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
