All Scot and Bothered is the second book in the stunning Devil You Know series by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!
They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…
He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who’s made his own way through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London’s most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he’s ever met.
IN THIS GAME OF LOVE, THE RULES DO NOT APPLY
Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother’s scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to a prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips…Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women…and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?
As always a thank you goes to NetGalley and St. Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Oh Cecelia is probably one of my favorite characters so far from Ms Byrne. The things she survives as a child and then uses it to make herself a better person while at the same time not losing the sweetness inside is amazing. She does so much for her friends without any expectation of something in return. I love that she doesn’t loose herself in all the things she needs to handle. Cassius on the other hand doesn’t make the best of choices when it comes to how he handles his past and is unnecessarily hard on Cecelia at first. Sadly there are people who aren’t always what they seem and put Cecilia at risk. When her life is on the line that is when things really get interesting between her and Cassius. This is definitely the book for those who like a little adventure with their romance.
I gave this book 5 kisses.
Happy Reading… Adri
