REVIEW: All Scot and Bothered by Kerrigan Byrne

Title: All Scot and Bothered
Series: Devil You Know #2)
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 in the world 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 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? 


I got an ARC on Netgalley, thank you Ms Byrne and St. Martin's Paperbacks


I loved this book and it's so hard to review books that I loved, but I will give it a try! This is the 2nd in the Devil you know series and it takes place a few months after book 1. 


The hero and the heroine met before and they kind of like/dislike each other from afar. They are kind of pushed together when Cecelia inherits her aunt's business. She and Ramsey are on different parts of the law... It was fun to see them but heads, but also heart breaking...


This is one of Ms Byrne's lightest books, but don't think it's light. We have murders, tragic pasts, and lots of emotional characters and moments. I can't wait to read the last friend's book, Francesca, and read about her past.
