I’m really looking forward to this! My introduction to O’Roark’s work was the slow burn, enemies to lovers goodness that is A Deal with the Devil, and it remains one of my favorite romances of the year. We briefly met the heroine of The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea in that book, so my interest is piqued already. And this great blurb (and gorgeous cover)? Has me very excited to get reading! It sounds like another complicated romance with a relationship that I shouldn’t be rooting for, and I’m all for it. The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea releases in January – details below!

You don’t really know a guy until you’ve vacationed with him…
When Drew Wilson’s ex-boyfriend Joel “Six” Bailey asks her to go on his family trip to Hawaii with him just as her life is falling apart, she decides it’s the perfect time to give him another chance.
The hitch? The Bailey family includes Six’s rude older brother, Joshua–a hot-nerd doctor who has hated Drew since the moment they met and once suggested she’d steal the family silver.
Drew is determined to win the Baileys over and give this thing with Six a fair shot…but Joshua is making that difficult. Not simply because he is in her way at every turn, but because–as one tropical adventure leads to the next–she’s beginning to wonder if obnoxious, odious Joshua might be the brother she actually belongs with.
Read while you wait!
I wouldn’t really call these two books a series, but we DID meet the heroine of The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea in A Deal with the Devil, and got to know her relationship status. The two books really have nothing to do with one another otherwise, so it’s certainly not required reading. HOWEVER, A Deal with the Devil was EXCELLENT. I loved the slow burn, enemies to lovers vibes and the hero is such a lovable jerk. The book is in contention for my Best of the Year list, and – considering it’s now halfway through November – that means it was a pretty great read!
He might not be the devil, but working under him for six weeks is my idea of hell.
Hayes Flynn is an arrogant jerk known best for his scotch habit and the way he spreads his British “charm” all over Hollywood, never with the same woman twice. He’s the last person I want to work for, except he has a face I can’t look away from, and the longer we’re together, the harder he is to hate. Because under that smug exterior is a heart he doesn’t want to show—one that was badly broken a decade earlier.
A part of me wants to fix it for him before I leave…but can I do it without breaking my own in the process?
