About The Deal
On my eighteenth birthday my father, the senator, gives me the gift he thinks every little girl dreams of.
The man of my dreams, and the wedding to match.
Stefan Zoric is heir to an elite worldwide modeling agency. Practically a prince.
My arrangement is simple, as far as sham marriages go.
I give him my virginity, behave as the perfect wife and he'll pay for the college degree my father found irrelevant.
But I don't want to be the perfect wife.
I want him to want me the way I want him.
I want him to confide in me.
But Stefan has secrets that he holds close, dangerous secrets.
And soon I'm wondering what kind of devil have I made a deal with?
Book One in the Arranged Series.
I really liked this story however I would’ve liked more chapters from Stefan’s perspective.
This was really good.
"We don't deal in regrets." I started and finished this book in a day. I absolutely loved it. 100% recommend it if you're into arranged marriages and a bit of an age gap. Also, one thing to keep in kind is that the Female MC is a teenager. She's not the most assertive character. Victoria, aka Tori, is turning eighteen in the beginning of the story. She's the daughter of a senator. For her eighteenth birthday, her father gifts her a man and marriage. This man is Stefan. He's the son of the owner of KZ Modeling. Victoria is immediately attracted to him. She tries to please him in every turn. Stefan is a workaholic. He, of course, is attracted to her because doesn't act on his desire until layer on. He doesn't even take her virginity during their honeymoon. He's also a bit of an arsehole. He's "hot and cold" as Victoria puts it. Victoria notices strange actions in the models of KZ Modeling doesn’t think much of it until shs over hears a conversation between Stefan's father and brother. It's mostly told by Victoria's POV with a few chapters being told in Stefan's POV.
I felt really sorry for Victoria during the beginning of the book. However, I was deflated when she thought she would find safety in the arms of her father. BUT.....her father never was the fatherly type. I didn’t see that coming. However, I recognized that the modeling agency wasn’t all it seemed to be.
The dialogue between the characters can get really dull at times. The characters are written to be fascinating, cultured and worldly but the book doesn’t manage to embed that into the characters. Also there’s other supporting characters that I don’t understand their connection or importance.

I want to read the other books to see what’s going to happen next PLEASE give us more...thank you so much for making this book IT IS EVERYTHING
Couldn’t put it down. Read it all in one night. I can’t wait to see what happens to Tori and Stefan.
Enjoyed the story of Stefan and Tori. Did have times of moving slowly but ended leaving you hanging, wanting to know what happens next! On to The Secret.
Good story line from the beginning but it dragged out at some points with no purpose. The lead female was just too naive and has no backbone. I thought she was catching on and making smarter choices but NOPE. Just ruined the rest of the books for me. I won’t be reading the rest of them.
Ahhh loved Stephan and Tori’s story and can’t wait to read the rest! Three cheers for this amazing book. 💕🖐👊
This is a great read with an awesome storyline that has well developed and engaging characters that have lots of chemistry. The smooth flow of the storyline makes for a good reading time. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Victoria was a pawn at the hands of her important Senator father and the man he arranged to marry her. The fact that Stephan was everything she ever wanted in a man and husband clouded Victoria usually sharp but innocent mind. Stephan was always in control, and when Victoria broke that control, he continued his own brand of torture by withholding his affection and care. As their relationship slowly deepened, Victoria found out some evil truths behind her father and her marriage deal with Stephan. This first book ended in a huge cliffy with Victoria on the cusp of a huge discovery and a life changing decision.
