About ARROGANT DEVIL
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 escape from hell just to run right into the arms of the devil.’
That’s a perfect description for where Meredith Avery finds herself when she finally gathers enough courage to leave her ‘fabulous’ California lifestyle and her doting husband who she is ‘nothing without.’
And even though Jack McKnight, the devil in disguise, may star in her cowboy fantasies, he’s more than proven himself to be a rude, arrogant, and inconsiderate man – one hellbent on making this ‘pampered princess’ realize, sooner rather than later, the error of her ways and return to her posh lifestyle and her heart broken husband because that’s Jack’s perception of Meredith before they even exchange words.
But here’s the thing about misconceptions…regardless of how valid one thinks the information is, if actions and demeanors seem to contradict the acquired secondhand information, only a jack hole would be unsympathetic towards a woman who clearly could use someone building her up instead of continuing the vicious cycle of making her feel inadequate, unintelligent, and worthless.
I have to admit…I did not like Jack, even a little bit, at the beginning of the story, but I don’t think I was supposed to like him…I feel like R.S. Grey meant for her readers to see Jack as the arrogant devil the title references. We were meant to sympathize with Meredith and champion for her to prove Jack wrong, and boy did I adore how well she handled herself with the cocky s.o.b.
Meredith Avery is a phenomenal heroine – one who is stronger than most people give her credit for because despite how defeated she felt and how false her bravado was, at times, she kept her brave face on, her shoulders high, and gave every ounce of attitude back to the rascally devil who turned her on as much as he pissed her off.
Meredith and Jack’s story is an amazing journey of self-discovery for both of them, especially because their initial meeting left them with such a negative first impression, both stereotyping each other due to that initial exchange, making it almost impossible for anything put hatred to define their relationship.
But the longer Meredith stays at Blue Stone Ranch and proves the kind of person she truly is, the easier it is for Jack to see the error of his ways, now he just needs to figure out what exactly he feels for her and how to make up for his asshole behavior.
I can’t not mention a certain feisty elderly secondary character. Edith McKnight is my kind of woman; she’s wiser than anyone else in Cedar Creek and even though she’s the devil’s grandma, she, and just about everyone else but Jack, sees who Meredith truly is and she works to mend Meredith’s heart and show her just exactly what she’s worth, which means that by the time Edith’s done berating her grandson and praising Meredith, it will be clear whose side she’s on and what she plans to do to ensure that satan himself is an idiot for misjudging a beautiful, bright, and worthy woman.
Without a doubt, I have a new favorite R.S. Grey story! Arrogant Devil has the perfect combination of heartwarming and heartbreaking moments as well as a cast of characters who help the hero and heroine realize that this angel and devil might just be perfect for each other.
