Thank you to the author for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Everyone in Cedar Creek, Texas, knows Jack McNight is an arrogant devil. Physically, I get it: he’s tan and fit, with coal-black hair that’s clearly been scorched by hellfire. Oh, and his personality? It burns just as hot.
When I show up on the doorstep of Blue Stone Ranch, I’m run-down and rockin’ my last pair of underwear. I’m hoping for a savior, but instead, I find him.
My opinion of Jack is marred by a dismal first impression, but his opinion of me is tainted even before I arrive. He’s heard I’m a spoiled princess there to take advantage of his goodwill. To him, I’m more trouble than I’m worth.
Our button-pushing banter should get under my skin. His arrogance should be a major turn-off. Problem is, devils are known to offer their own form of temptation.
Every one of his steely glares sends a shiver down my spine.
Every steamy encounter leaves me reeling.
Sure, it could be the Texas heat messing with my head, but there’s no way I’ll survive the summer without silencing him with a kiss and wrestling him out of those Wranglers.
Who knows…going to bed with the devil might just be the salvation I’ve been looking for all along.
Ok, here are the things I say about R.S. Grey every time I read her books:
- I laughed more times than I can count
- Strong, fierce female characters
- Personalities that clashed yet meshed perfectly
- A storyline that sucked me in and kept the pages turning
And they’re all true again. Arrogant Devil has all of the features I’ve come to love about Grey’s writing, and it rocked my world.
That being said, I loved that this book felt grittier, and a bit tougher than her previous books. Meredith and Jack really didn’t get along. They butted heads so hard you could hear their horns smashing from miles away. And I absolutely loved it. I’ve read some books with characters whose arrogance or stubbornness did not mesh at all with the storyline and other characters, but Grey made this work. One of my favorite parts about it was watching Meredith’s sass come out (strong personalities are one of my biggest draws into a book). I got everything I wanted from this book, and it reiterated why I keep coming back to her writing.
Highly recommend ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
