The Arrangement by Robyn Harding

Natalie is a young art student living in New York City, struggling to make ends meet when a glossy friend from university makes a suggestion: Why doesn’t she sign up to be a sugar-baby? Sex doesn’t have to be involved unless she wants it to be. At first, Natalie is dubious, but soon she meets Gabe and it feels like she’s living out a scene from Pretty Woman… That is, until she’s making her one call from a police station, whispering: “I killed someone.”

The Arrangement is among Kathleen Barber's eight novels that will make you never want to look at your phone again.
