The Arrangement by Robyn Harding | Review

This was a quick and easy entertaining read!

The Arrangement is a story about the sugar baby world, and its infatuation, deception, and betrayal. I thought the premise was quite creative, I’d never read a book so far that revolved around sugar babies/sugar daddies.

I ended up really liking Gabe’s character, even more than Natalie’s character. I tend to get annoyed when character because really obsessed in books, so I was getting a tad annoyed with her character, but overall was really fascinated at where the story was going.

The ending for me fell a bit flat and left me with many questions remaining. Overall, great fascinating story, and includes a few twists! For me, it was just missing a bit more ending development to cover those plot holes.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


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 favours 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. She begins drinking heavily and stalking him: watching him at work, spying on his wife, even befriending his daughter, who is not much younger than she is. 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.
