5 Stars for Diana Duncan's Deal with the Devil!


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?

Looking for a fun feel good book?
Then this is the one for you!

Cynthia Wagner is a Game Designer who is at the top of her game until the company that employs her is bought out, now she has to create the game of games and make a bid to her new boss in order to keep her job.
She decides to move into a friends house while working on her game to get ideas and find some tranquillity,  only to find out that's not going to happen.  Her new neighbours will not let that happen.
Rory Devlin is taking care of his sister's kids while she's out of town, they're a rumbustious bunch and seem to get into anything they can.  They especially can't seem to stay away from Cynthia who seems to be quite a cranky lady.  Poor Rory has to corral the kids so Cynthia can get her work done but that's much easier said then done.
Attraction flares between Rory and Cynthia.  
Can they get through the crazy obstacles that keep jumping at them? (literally) Read and find out!

I adore this book, I laughed so much that my cheeks hurt.  My husband kept asking me what was so funny and I would tell him what had happened along with a little back story and he was laughing right along with me.
Cynthia seems like a person with a lot of drive and ambition, she's fighting to save her career and doesn't need any distractions and that exactly what Irish Hotty Rory Devlin is.  All hard muscles and great with kids, you will fall in love with this character right along with Cynthia.
Cynthia starts out as someone I couldn't really relate to since I'm a At Home Mom but as the chapters fly by I had no problem relating to her and her angst.  I really like her and wish she was a real person because I'm sure we would be great friends.
So all in all I had an awesome time reading this book and I really think a lot of you would enjoy it as well.  

This book will make you laugh and help you get lost in another place.  I think it's a feel good romance that will have you smiling for days.  I certainly did!
