REVIEW: Arrogant Devil by R.S. Grey

by - 8:00 AM

“I came to Texas hoping to find some comfort from my sister and instead I found him—the rudest, most inconsiderate man west of the Mississippi.”

Back of the book blurb:

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.

My rating:

            I just finished Arrogant Devil a measly two hours ago and my heart is still fluttering, my eyes aren’t quite dry yet, and I have fallen so deeply in love that I don’t think my heart will ever be the same after Jack and Meredith’s story. I’m so thankful to R.S. Grey for allowing me to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

If I’m being honest, I never thought I would love anything more than I love The Allure of Julian LeFray; however, Arrogant Devil now tops the list of my all-time favorite R.S. Grey novels. Arrogant Devil will make you laugh, make you cry, and everything in between.

“There’s half a country between him and me, and the only thing I have to worry about now is putting my next foot forward… well, that and the fact that I have nowhere to go, no money, no job, and no food. I’m also rapidly running out of sellable accessories, but let’s not get bogged down by details.”

            Arrogant Devil begins with Meredith, who just up and left her allegedly doting husband and ran off to Texas to try and build a new life. What she doesn’t expect when she gets to Blue Stone Ranch is the hotter than hell boss she will be working for or his shitty attitude. She also doesn’t expect to like the ranch, the job, and surprise, her boss so much, even if he is an arrogant devil.

I absolutely love Meredith. Her sarcastic sense of humor (which is a pretty consistent trait in most of Grey’s characters), her wit, and her grit all contribute to a hilarity and sense of heart that surpasses the rest of Grey’s novels and characters. Obviously, they’re all great but Meredith and her story stole my heart. (And honestly, I don’t care if I ever get it back.)

“I escape from hell just to run right into the arms of the devil.”

            Jack is also one of my favorite characters from Grey’s novels. The title is correct. Jack is an arrogant devil. When he first meets Meredith, he’s cruel and writes her off as a California princess who, at the first sign of trouble, will flee back to her husband. That’s not what happens, though. Meredith proves Jack wrong.

            Jack is so damn dreamy. All of my cowboy fantasies came to life in Arrogant Devil and god, I would not mind having a Jack of my own. His character arc is inspiring and beautiful and I’m honestly tearing up writing this because I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS AND THIS STORY SO MUCH.

“Now he’s looking at me like a man who’s a little bit angel and a whole lotta devil.”

            If you love a slow burn, then you are in for a treat. Arrogant Devil is the sweetest kind of torture in that sense. But trust me, the pay off is so worth it. By the time you finish, you’ll wish you had double the slow burn if only so the novel isn’t over yet.

            I’m a firm believer that a book comes into your life at the exact right time and that’s what Arrogant Devil was for me. I needed this book. It broke me and put me back together again as a new and improved person. And I really hope that you all will pick Arrogant Devil and experience the same bliss that I did.

“Love is supposed to make us fools.”
“Oh yeah? What does that make you?” He smiles and tips his head down to kiss me.
“The biggest fool of them all.”

            Arrogant Devil is out on May 10!

Happy Reading!
