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.

When it comes to RomCom, nobody does it better than R.S. Grey. Between her quirky characters, their quick-witted banter, and their absolutely winning personalities, it’s a recipe for success. I knew the moment I started Arrogant Devil that this was my kind of read. It screamed HEART and LAUGHS and SWOON and whoa, did it deliver. Meredith and Jack are enchanting as their distaste for each other turns into something so delightfully tender. Grey really infuses her stories with heartfelt emotions, realistic plot-lines, and the best dialogue EVER. Between the laughs, the tears, and the achingly sweet moments, I was won over time and time again, and I simply can’t recommend this romance enough. It’s without a doubt one of the best of the year.
Finally gathering the courage, Meredith leaves her horrible husband and miserable life behind. But with no money, no clothes, and absolutely no place to go, she’s in more than a bind. Contacting her step-sister, she ends up in Texas, at Bluestone Ranch. There she meets Jack, the biggest a-hole under the sun. Jack’s not thrilled to have Meredith on his ranch. However he owes Helen (Meredith’s stepsister) a favor, and so he gives her a job she desperately needs. However, tainted by preconceived notions of who Meredith is, he’s ready to give this California Princess a run for her money. He wants her to quit and leave him alone. But what Jack has to learn is that Meredith isn’t the woman he thinks she is, and he ends up with something completely unexpected.
And boy, is this romance ever swoony. Our strong willed, optimistic, and thoroughly enchanting heroine slays you. She brings so much heart to the story, maybe even more than our hero Jack does, and he brings a lot. Meredith’s like a breath of fresh air, like rain on a hot summer afternoon, always striving to see the positive in every situation. I loved her spirit, her zest to make her life her own. I found that so endearing, her so funny and so completely charming. Reading these two together was electric and energizing. The back-and-forth that happens, the heated moments, the moments that are packed full of passion and chemistry are sizzling. Jack is a moody hero, and his temperamental personality was out of control sexy, but also frustrating in the best way.
Overall, I think this is R.S. Grey’s best work to date. There so much goodness in Arrogant Devil, so much romance packed into such a smart and captivating story. With a wicked slowburn, dynamic characters, and a plotline that hits you in the feels, you truly can’t go wrong. It’s the perfect way to spend an evening or afternoon, just losing yourself in the pages of this great book. It’ll leave you happy and charmed, and there’s simply nothing better than that. This is must read recommendation, a top FAVORITE of 2018 for me! So great.

I wish I could give Arrogant Devil all the stars in Texas. This story of a woman setting off on her own to reclaim her life and the man who gives her a helping hand even though he believes she’s a spoiled trophy wife just became my new favorite RS Grey novel to date. (Okay, don’t quote me on that because it’s realllllllly hard to pick a favorite) but this book was EVERYTHING!!! From the first page to the very last, I was hooked. I could not get enough of this storyline, of these characters, of the deliciously slow burn, of the heartache that peppers these pages. I loved every single moment, every word, every bit of sweet romance and every frustrating bit of push and pull. Arrogant Devil is hands down one of my favorite books of the year and I can’t scream that loudly enough.
I don’t read a lot of Rom Com because often I think they’re just silly. I much prefer dry humor, witty banter, well timed sarcasm, and smart writing, which is why I’m such a fan of RS Grey. SHE NAILS IT. I recieved several funny looks from my family as I read this book because they’d catch me chuckling over the simplest lines, smiling from ear to ear over Edith and her deadpan one liners, or Meredith and her refreshing inner monologue. This isn’t forced comedy, this is a divine romance peppered perfectly with just the right amount of humor and adorable lightness even though the story can get heavy at times. It’s SO SMART and it’s so well done and it’s heartwarming and it’s so romantic and I don’t think I’ll ever come down from the high this book has me on right this moment.
I can’t find the words to fully encompass how much I adored this book. I want to shout out loud all the beautiful moments on these pages, all the sweetest scenes and the bits of delicious flirtation, the reluctant attraction between Jack and Meredith and the scenes that made my heart literally ache. I want to tell you that every single thing on these pages made me feel. If I wasn’t smiling from ear to ear or pumping my fist Jersey shore style in excitement about what was to come, I was trying to soothe the ache in my chest over how much I was hurting. The assumptions Jack makes about Meredith, Meredith’s palpable loneliness, the fierce attraction brimming between them, her heartbreaking past, his tangible loss, the way they’re both so misunderstood and all the beautiful things they find in each other when they’re not even looking… it all comes together in this addictive, intoxicating, unputdownable package of deliciousness and IT IS BREATHTAKING.
Arrogant Devil is Meredith’s journey toward finding herself, a journey that leads her straight to a ranch in Texas where a sexy, brooding arrogant devil changes everything. This storyline is so much more fantastic than anything I can possibly think to say about it. Grey delivers all the giddy feels I crave in this book with her painstaking slow burn of a romance, with magnetic characters that I couldn’t possibly love more, with her SMART writing and brilliant storytelling. Arrogant Devil is a feel-good romantic comedy balanced seamlessly with a good dose of heartache and it was PERFECTION. A TOP FAVORITE, a MUST READ, a story EVERYONE will love. I never wanted it to end.
