Publisher's Summary

A full-length standalone romantic comedy from USA Today best-selling author R.S. Grey.  

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.

OMG . . . LOVED THIS BOOK

What can I say about this book to truly convey how amazing it was? I do not often get a chance to review a book, but after reading this one I knew that I had to make sure that everyone knows how funny it is.

This was my first R.S. Grey book and I loved it. Aiden Snow is wonderful. I don’t think I have ever listed to any of his narrations. But I can now add him to my list of narrators that I will look for. Aiden’s deep voice made Jack sultry and mysterious, bringing him to life.

Carly Robins always does a great job as a narrator. She brings a vibrancy to her characters. Jack’s grandmother was the best. I loved her interfering in their relationship.

I absolutely loved the story. I loved that Meredith walked away from a life that she realized limited her and led her to blaze a new path, and the path took her to Cedar Creek, Texas. This is a must-read. Funny, engaging and sheerly entertaining.

Entertaining Story!

Once I started listening, I couldn't stop. This story was frustrating at times, and funny at others. This is a riches to rags story, and I couldn't be more pleased on how it developed. At some points I wanted to throttle both main characters, while still rooting for them. There was a special character (shotgun toting grandma) that I loved - she was my favorite. A very entertaining story.

Witty and wonderful!

What a fantastically written story! And the narrators were so perfect for the main characters. There was some serious verbal sparring happening between the characters of Meredith and Jack. And we cannot leave out Edith! Such a special brand of prickly she was; truly, the story would not have been the same without her. I really loved the uniqueness of this plot line and could not quit listening to it. If you like a happy ending to a story that makes you smile and feel all warm and fuzzy inside then get this book! It’s sort of a being mean to each other to friends to lovers kind of read and I loved every spicy word.
Kudos to the narrators too! I loved the way they read Meredith and Jack and Edith etc., etc. All of the characters really. Of course, they had a wonderfully written story to work with!❤️

So much fun!

The woman can write a damn good book! I smiled through 90% of the book and when I wasn't smiling I was laughing. Such a great read. Er... or actually listen. I listened to the audiobook. It was fabulous. R.S. Grey has a way of picking the best narrators. They were so good. I loved their voices and delivery. Really well done!

This is a light read, not something to be taken too seriously. I'm not going to nitpick the hell out of every detail and complain about the characters I hated or try to pick apart the abuse aspect (like so many other reviewers want to do).
Fact is, the villains were great villains and the heroes were great heroes. In my opinion, it was perfect. The characters were perfectly imperfect and human. That's what I want. I want to read about imperfect people who don't always say or do the right things. So, yes, Jack was a jerk in the beginning. Guess what--people are jerks in real life.
So, yes, Meredith didn't have a plan when she left. Guess what--people leave bad situations without a plan all the time. It's real life.

Bravo, Ms. Grey! Loved this book! It's a solid 5-star read. Now I'm off to grab Make Me Bad, and then to devour all your other books. Please keep doing what you're doing!

Great

I loved the reader story characters. Just a fun read and great escape. I don't write long detailed reviews just a yes or no. No review's if I really didn't like story and if I didn't like the reader.

Another Amazing Story

R.S. Grey really knows how to choose her narrators for her books. Each one is able to bring them to life. I love the humor in her stories. I find myself laughing out loud, and then rewinding to hear it again.

What is hotter than a cowboy? That has been a fantasy of mine since I was a little girl. So, to say that this book wasn’t a fun one for me is an understatement.

This book really hit home with me as I was in an verbal and emotionally abusive marriage. I completely understood when Meredith said that it’s very hard to explain why you end up staying in a relationship like that. There were times when I wished my ex would just hit me so that I would have proof of the abuse. To this day I still am insecure about certain things.

Yassssssss

Great book. Seriously recommend. Anyone who had the courage to leave an abusive relationship no matter the type of abuse is strong. And deserves to be happy and loved. I loved that the Grey took their time with the storyline. Not rushing to anything. Taking time to build the characters and creating such an amazing personality for Meredith. Loved it!

Funny and entertaining

When you find yourself cracking up due to the character dialog while walking down the street or shopping, you know that it is a good story. This is a fast read, heart-warming at times and frustrating at other times. Definitely worth the read, especially if you are an R. S. Grey fan.

Amazing from start to finish!

I just recently discovered audiobooks and decided to give it a try with my favorite R.S. Grey book! I was hesitant at first but now that I've finished the story I realize that there was nothing to worry about. It was absolutely amazing! Loved the narration of Aiden Snow and Carly Robins! They made the listening experience very enjoyable.
