Review: The Devil Gets His Due by Elizabeth O’Roark

Keeley: Last January, I drunk-married my nemesis—hot, oversized geek Graham Tate. With no memory of how it came about, there was only one solution: run off before he woke up and pretend it didn’t happen. It would have worked perfectly if I hadn’t wound up pregnant.

Graham is the opposite of everything I want in a man—practical, disciplined, frugal—but living with him until the baby arrives has me wondering if, perhaps, I’ve been wanting the wrong things all along. And if that drunk version of me last January might have been onto something.

Graham: I never planned to have kids, and I certainly wouldn’t have planned on one with Keeley Connolly—a woman who does not believe in savings accounts or personal safety and thinks Lucky Charms is a health food because of the non-marshmallow bits.

A woman who also didn’t think twice about marrying me in Vegas and ditching me hours later.

I can’t wait to put this behind me and return to my careful, chaos-free life in New York. But the more time I spend with Keeley, the more I’m remembering the things that led me to marry her in the first place…and wondering if I can live without them when this ends.

An enemies-to-lovers, drunk-married-in-Vegas, accidental pregnancy romance between the grumpiest hedge fund manager and most irresponsible doctor you’ve ever met.

This one starts off with a bang, when Keeley wakes up hungover to realize she married a man she can’t stand, so she leaves while he’s sleeping. Her head’s pounding and this is just too much right now, so she’ll deal with it later. Except later comes much sooner than expected when she realizes soon after that she’s pregnant. Graham doesn’t know what to make of any of this because he’s still trying to come to terms with the drunk Vegas wedding himself, but he suspects Keeley needs a hand adulting so he heads to Cali. The agree he’ll stick around until the baby comes, if they don’t kill each other first, but they’re both terribly unhappy with the situation.

Keeley’s a doctor with a brutal new job and no support except for her overbearing accidental husband. She’s not sure what her life is going to look like through pregnancy and beyond, but she’s ready to find out, as soon as she can get rid of her bossy baby-daddy. Graham sees how unforgiving her career truly is so he’s determined to get Keeley to take care of herself too, not just the baby, but they butt heads a lot. I love the way these two interact because Keeley’s a girl after my own heart with all her sarcasm and barbed wit. Graham is sweet and thoughtful and everything she never knew she needed. Their story is full of bickering and banter but still sweet, angsty yet still steamy. I loved these two together and couldn’t get enough of their story. I received an ARC from Valentine PR in exchange for an honest review.
