Review: The Devil You Know by Elizabeth O’Roark

There’s a devil on my shoulder, and every Monday morning she announces herself. She’s this delicious flame in my chest, a flurry of whispered suggestions in my ear. Suggestions I ignore…because every single one of them is about Ben Tate.

Ben—Stealer of Clients, Evicter of Homeless Women, Nemesis. Sitting across from me every damn Monday with his lovely, smug smile and his too-perfect teeth, the living symbol of everything I hate.

It’s been my policy to avoid him, but when a case comes into the firm—one that could change his career and mine—I make an exception. It means weekends and evenings by his side. It means enduring his smirk and his smart mouth and never taking the bait.

Until the night Ben says “Beg”…and that devil on my shoulder decides to make a few demands of her own.

This is a sweet yet steamy enemies-to-lovers full of fantastically snarky banter and hate-to-love-you sentiment, so just my thing. Gemma was a little tough to warm up to at first because she’s very cold and callous, but I do like her despite her flaws. She’s harsh, which I guess makes her great at her job, but she can be hard to take. Luckily for her, Ben has known that since before they met, and he’s prepared to take all of her abuse until he can convince her to open up. Ben is sweet and patient and everything you want in a book boyfriend – although he’s no Josh Bailey, who still has my heart. Gemma is a bit of a sourpuss, but he brings out a better side of her and their story is a fun read.
