Review – Deal With The Devil – Diana Duncan

23 Aug

deal with the devilDeal with the Devil
Author: Diana Duncan
Series: #1 in the Devilish Devlins series

Description:
Paradise for software designer Cynthia Wagner means uninterrupted solitude to invent a brilliant video game, and save her job. But renovations on her city apartment force her to seek refuge in a temporary rental in the ‘burbs.

The promised Paradise morphs into Purgatory when she meets her new neighbor, a deliciously tempting Irish rogue sporting a wicked grin and to-die-for body. Worse, the handsome bachelor has noisy, drooly, havoc-creating baggage on his hands for the summer… rambunctious five-year-old twin nephews, a baby niece, and the kids’ yappy dog. Rory Devlin is a dangerous distraction—and he’s hiding a naughty secret.

Jackhammers and contractors would have provided more peace and quiet.

Stuck in the Suburbs of the Damned with Mr. Uncle-Turned-Mom and his wild menagerie, Cynthia struggles to meet her deadline. But she struggles more with her undeniable attraction to her devlish-ous neighbor.

Could it be that what she’s mistaken for Hell is actually the Heaven she’s been searching for?

Review:
Sometimes the best or most entertaining books I find, are random ones that I pick up for one of my various reading challenges, this was one of them. I was looking for a book who had an author that shared a name with a character from a Shakespeare play, and I figured that Diana was a pretty easy name to find. And while searching amazon, came across Diana Duncan’s books. I’d never read anything by her, but I know I can for sure that it won’t be the last.

Deal with the Devil was a relatively quick read – I think it only took me 2 metro trips (about an two hours) to read. i had to laugh at some of the issues that Cynthia ran into during the course of the book – I think at some stage I probably would have said, obviously, I’m being told that I shouldn’t be doing this…it was like a calamity of errors 😉 But oh was it also spicy in a few places – and I really liked the fact that there was a bit of delay before Cynthia and Rory actually got together…

Then, there was Joy…aka, Crazy Stalker Bitch..oh where to start…lol! All I can say is that you need to read to truly understand her complete psycho-ness. Overall, I’d give Deal with the Devil 3.5 stars – and would recommend it to people who want a cute, smexy contemporary romance.

    Gotta admit…the Romance isn’t what piqued my interest. As soon as I read “psycho notch”….whoa, now we are getting somewhere…
