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.
I am ashamed to say that this is my first ever R.S. Grey book 🙈 As soon as I finished I proceeded to purchase all her writing goodness that I have missed out on before now.
This book had a little of everything that I enjoy in a good romantic comedy. Meredith married right out of college and when she realizes her life has been defined by the mental abuses that has becomes her normal she runs away to find a new start. Here’s where the arrogant devil Jack comes in. As a favor to her half sister he hires Meredith as his house keeper. Of the bat he doesn’t trust her pr want her there when he’s told she’s a spoiled princess just having a fit. There is more to the life Meredit’s trying to escape than others know, but she doesn’t let there misconceptions hold her back.
“But for some reason, around Jack, I play defense. I get angry and snappy. He rubs me the wrong way, gets under my skin. It’s his arrogance, his utter lack of sympathy for somebody clearly down on their luck. I can’t stand him , which is a problem considering he’s my new boss.”
“She laughs at that— a rich, warm laugh that stops me in my tracks. My gaze hitches on the deep dimple dotting the left side of her smile. When she notices me staring, she clears her throat and motions back to the house.”
Arrogant Devil had enemies to lovers, intense passion, hilarious inner dialogue, and a take no crap grandma. R.S. Grey is officially going to be an auto buy author for me. I recommend this book to all romantic comedy loving readers. Now excuse me while I go read all her other books
