A Deal With the Devil by Elizabeth O’Roark is now live!
He might not be the devil, but working under him for six weeks is my idea of hell.
Hayes Flynn is an arrogant jerk known best for his scotch habit and the way he spreads his British “charm” all over Hollywood, never with the same woman twice. He’s the last person I want to work for, except he has a face I can’t look away from, and the longer we’re together, the harder he is to hate. Because under that smug exterior is a heart he doesn’t want to show—one that was badly broken a decade earlier.
A part of me wants to fix it for him before I leave…but can I do it without breaking my own in the process?

This grabbed me right from the start. Beautiful people with tragic love stories. Well, Hayes’ is really tragic while Tali’s is just sad. She stood by a loser for lots of years before she finally saw his true colors. It leaves her struggling though. Struggling to get on with her career as a writer with writer’s block. Her bestie offers her a chance to grab some easy money until she gets back on track. Her new job as assistant to the sought after plastic surgeon is not what she expected. Tali knew that the doctor was a too handsome playboy but his life is crazy. Drunken nights with a new woman, or two or three, every night and days full of home calls to the beautiful people of LA where privacy is demanded. Hayes and Tali are just as beautiful as the stars he treats. Their outsides draw them to each other but Tali is not enamored by his lifestyle. She’s full of sass and spunk as she puts him in his place with her banter and seemingly unaffected stance to his charms. I was drawn in to her slow change to him and her realization that there’s more to him than just his beautiful face and body. They slowly reveal themselves to each other and it’s sad and charming and ultimately sexy hot. It was a little slow around the middle and a couple of the plot points weren’t my favorite but they did reveal a good side of Hayes. I did enjoy the fake girlfriend/boyfriend portions of the story. Some of the superficial elements were a little on the nose and had a Cinderella feel to them. Ultimately, Tali’s needy family comes first and tears her away from LA and Hayes. How will he respond is the question. Let the vibrant young beauty go or go after her? I love the changes to Hayes in the story and how he supported Tali. I liked this author’s writing and will read more from her. Her storytelling drew me in and kept me turning the pages to see how this sizzling romance between beautiful people concluded. Worth the read!
