Good morning my dear, naive friend,

I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.


Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it's followed by “don’t stop.”

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.

Love,Regretfully yours,Lily

The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first. 

The Allure Of Julian Lefray is the only book by R.S. Grey that i love so much so I have a high expectation on the The Allure of Dean Harper. Unfortunately, it didnt manage to exceed my expectations.

I actually enjoyed 65% of it. (lol somehow that percentage is so irrelevant) Its funny and light and SO FULL OF FOOD THAT I WAS STARVING THE WHOLE TIME I READ THIS BOOK. Damn you and your fictional food, Grey.

I have some issues with Lily though. I understand that she is this one stubborn and strong girl that nothing can intimidate her. I get that demeanor, I do. But honest to God its too much. Shes too stubborn that its rude and annoying. She crossed the 'stubborn and strong hearted but insanely cool heroin' line. Shes overdone it that it doesnt look cool anymore. Whats worse is that for me, she radiates negative vibes with her. There are some scenes/parts in the book where she went overboard and outrightly rude. ITS INFURIATING OK. 

Also, i'm sorry but i cant really sense the chemistry between Dean and Lily. Sometimes theyre okay but sometimes its a bit.... off? Idk. maybe its just me. There are some Dean-Lily scenes that make me want to hit her head with a brIck and knock some sense into her. Seriously, what is she playing at?
