REVIEW – ARROGANT DEVIL by R.S. Grey

SYNOPSIS

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.

It feels like we’re going fast, but there’s no slowing down, no going steady. This moment has been weeks in the making. I’ve written a thesis in my head about the things I’d like to do to her body.

 

 

I am an R.S. Grey “fangirl” for LIFE!! I love her stories and ”ARROGANT DEVIL” is going up there as one of my top favorites by this amazing author!! No one pulls off the ”enemies-to-lovers” trope as perfectly as she does! I devoured this book!! Absolutely loved the heck out of it! The chemistry between Jack and Meredith is ”WHITE HOT” from the start and Grandma Edith was a true spitfire and an utterly endearing character!

Meredith has always been considered a ”pampered princess”. It seemed that things always came easy for her. When she married one of Hollywood’s most successful producers and was living a glamorous lifestyle, she was the envy of everyone. Then one day she goes from having it all to basically only owning the clothes on her back. She’s left her husband who spent the better part of their marriage verbally abusing her and tearing her down any chance he got. During the five years with her husband, she isolated herself from family and friends because she didn’t want them to know how truly miserable her life was. Now, with barely any money on her, she has no choice but to seek help from her older half-sister who lives in Texas. Unfortunately, her sister is in Paris on a month long vacation with her husband and while Meredith may not have a close relationship with her sister, she does help her get a job at Blue Stone Ranch.

Blue Stone Ranch is owned by Jack McKnight, a handsome but insanely arrogant man. He’s overly abrasive and feared by most of his employees and the residents of the small town of Cedar Creek. At first, he’s anxious to hire Meredith because her sister is her personal assistant and one of his most valued employees, but when Helen paints a less than favorable picture of her sister, Jack is reluctant about hiring her. He goes out of his way to be extra rude and mean towards Meredith but there’s nothing he can do or say to her to make her quit because she needs this job more than anything.

As time moves on, Jack starts to see what everyone in Cedar Creek and his grandma Edith has noticed from the start—Meredith is a sweet gal with a warm heart. Her personality shines brightly and she even wins the heart of his dog Alfred.

For most of the story, Jack tries to keep his distance from Meredith. He’s got a misguided opinion of her, thinking that she’s a poor little rich girl that is messing with the heart of her devoted husband and that any second she’s going to run home to her posh Hollywood lifestyle. But he’s not the only one who’s got the wrong idea about how things really are. Jack has suffered tremendous loss in his life and he carries the pain deep in his heart. He’s built up walls to protect himself from ever letting anyone become important in his life so that he never has to suffer that loss again. Meredith starts to see that deep down, Jack is a really good guy who would do anything for his loved ones.

There was an extremely slow build to the romance between Jack and Meredith. I’m not going to lie, I was nearly dying for things to finally happen between them, but boy was it worth the wait!! I actually think the anticipation made the story even more entertaining!
