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 loved this book. I wasn’t sure at first whether I would or not because you hear about SO many books where the main characters absolutely hate each other at first then fall in love, but this one was a good one. That being said, I don’t believe I’ve ever read anything of R.S. Grey’s before, and I’m not sure how I came across this book but it was on my kindle so I decided to read it. I am glad I did. I quickly found my favorite character being Edith, Jack McKnight’s elderly grandmother. Her and Meredith hit it off really well. I also found some anger when it came to the way Meredith was treated, not only by her husband of 5 years, but also by her older half sister and Jack. Jack just took Helen’s word for how Meredith was and didn’t try to get to know her or form his own opinions of her. Meredith gave it right back to him though. I liked how strong she was in not really giving a crap about how people felt about her. Sure, I’m sure it wasn’t the greatest feeling, but she did her own thing and did the job Jack hired her for. Their happy ending was a slow one, but this book was totally worth the wait.
