Deal With The Devil by Diana Duncan

To be honest, because I have read some self-published books that I could barely finish and could not in any way write a review for, I was a leery about reading Deal With The Devil. Color me excited to read it and find out DWTD is another great example that a book can be self published and a great read!!!  The price is great at only $2.99 on amazon

Book Summary:
When Irish eyes are smilin’…beware! Because trouble—and love—isn’t far behind!

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 Cynthia has mistaken for hell is actually the heaven she’s been searching for?

Naughty D's Review:
I am totally in love with the ENTIRE Devlin clan.  Ms. Duncan has created a contemporary romance that not only let's you see the relationship between Rory and Cynthia develop, but you get to see how 10, yes 10, siblings interact in a not so perfect family. The Devlin's are rowdy, headstrong, stubborn, but most of all loving.    Kelsey, Dylan and Brendan steal every scene they are in.   Then there is Bridget, who by description, reminds me so much of my furbaby, but in the female form, that I couldn't help but smile and laugh every time she was in a scene.

Rory has got to be one of the sweetest, sexiest heroes I've read in a long time and when he turns on the heat..OMG!!!  Everything about him makes me swoon, hell all of the Devlin men make me swoon.  Cynthia could come off as a "poor, little Rich girl" but she doesn't, she is definitely a great example of not judging a book by it's cover.

Deal With The Devil had me laughing for most of the book. There are so many touching but funny parts, the family interaction is great and there are a couple of twists in it that I totally did not see coming. 

DWTD is NOT an erotic romance, it is a great contemporary, steamy, funny romance that fans of series and family stories will enjoy.
