[Review] ARROGANT DEVIL by R. S. Grey

Source: Received a copy from the author to
give an honest review.
Release Date: May 10, 2018


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 first stumbled upon R. S. Grey during the Rio Summer Olympics when she wrote two Summer Games titles. I absolutely LOVED them, so I quickly one-clicked some of her other titles, and I haven't looked back since! She quickly became one of my favourite rom-com authors, and her books always have me laughing, smiling, and swooning! As soon as I heard she had a new book coming out, I added it to my to-read list...I have to admit that with Arrogant Devil, I didn't even read the description...just automatically added it on Goodreads. That's how much I love her books...doesn't matter what she writes, I'll read them, and she never disappoints!

Just as I expected, Arrogant Devil was absolutely wonderful! From start to finish it was extremely funny, and it constantly had me laughing. When I was reading it on the bus, I was struggling to keep a big goofy grin off my face almost the entire time. I didn't realize just how much I was craving laughter and something a bit lighthearted until I started reading Arrogant Devil and it instantly made me feel more relaxed and refreshed...even though I stayed up way too late during the work week because I didn't want to stop reading. ;)
One of the things that I always love about R. S. Grey's books is the fact that she really, really knows how to write dual POVs. She does an amazing job of showing both characters and she manages to make sure you get both sides of the story while never making a story feel repetitive! In the case of Arrogant Devil, Meredith and Jack were fantastic! I absolutely loved Meredith! I wanted to hug her close and I wanted to protect her from everyone who was judging her. She was so sassy, and sooooo funny! I loved her snappy lines, and I really loved how she interacted with Jack! And Jack...holy hot cowboy! I'm a sucker for an amazing rom-com...throw in a sassy heroine and a sexy hero...especially one who's a bit broody, distant, and so, so, strong and I'm so there for it. Chemistry-wise,  Meredith and Jack were absolutely off-the-charts! Their dynamics were fiery and I loved seeing them battle each other with their banter! I also loved the calmer moments between all left me feeling so content and happy! I finished Arrogant Devil with a seriously big grin on my face and I'm already looking forward to the next R. S. Grey book that I read!

Overall, I loved Arrogant Devil! It was hilarious, sexy, and packed full of so much swoon-worthy goodness! Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop! I'd recommend Arrogant Devil (and any of R. S. Grey's other wonderful books) to readers who like stories that are full of humour and heart with some good ol' steamy sexiness thrown in!

So I guess I'm just going to sit here and eagerly wait for R. S. Grey's next rom-com, but while I wait, I'll just have to keep encouraging all of y'all to read her books! (Couldn't resist the y'all after reading Arrogant Devil. :P I've always wanting to "say" it you know. haha)
