Ringer - C.J. Duggan
Released: April 2, 2014
SynopsisThey say it’s the quiet ones you have to worry about, and she was quiet, very quiet—when 
she wasn’t busy despising me with a burning passion.  Ringo ‘Ringer’ James has a no-strings-attached policy.  Love them, leave them, and remain the eternal bachelor.  After a summer in which every one of his mates has succumbed to settling down, or so it  seemed, Ringer is on the lookout for a quick exit. Having had enough of the stomach-turning 
love fest witnessed over the past three months, Ringer jumps at the opportunity to help out 
his mate, Max, by heading to Max’s dad’s property for a working holiday.  It’s just what he’s looking for. A remote, dusty homestead in Ballan, with only hard work, a cold beer and a comfy bed to worry about – no women. Until Miranda Henry. 
The privately educated daughter of his boss has returned home from overseas and things 
are about to get very complicated, very fast. As summer draws to its end, Ringer is about to learn that sometimes attraction defies all logic, and that there really is such a thing as ‘enemies with benefits.’

What I Thought: OH MY LORDY. Every time. EVERY SINGLE TIME. You think you know which is your favourite Onslow boy, BUT YOU DON'T. Sure, you have seen enough of each and you love them all and you might even think you love one more than the other, but really you are just kidding yourself. Duggan keeps bringing us closer, deeper to these swoon-worthy boys she has created, and each time I fall for them a little bit more. 

This time was no different. Ringer is sick of the love-fest in Onslow, and he takes the first opportunity to get away for awhile. But of course, things are never quite that simple for the Onslow boys and for Ringer it is no different. Once he meets Miranda Henry, the games begins. She may look like an angel but it's the devil she has in her eyes as she and Ringer go down a path that there is no coming back from. There was a lot of fun, jokes and craziness but in the end, there is the love that we want to see and we sure do get it.

Ringer is similar to the other books in the summer series - as in there is hot man-candy, crazy women and sexy moments that make me blush like a little girl. But Ringer is a different Onslow boy and that makes his story different to the others. If you love the Summer series, then this one will be no different. If you haven't read the summer series, then unfortunately we can't be friends.

The Good: Ringer the sexy bad boy, who does naughty things, who learns to love - it's absolutely gorgeous to read.

The BadI STILL CAN'T DECIDE WHO MY FAVOURITE ONSLOW BOY IS! Maybe after the series is completely finished I will be able to decide... But the thought of that day coming upsets me greatly - I won't ever be ready to leave these boys (and girls) behind.

  1. I love this series and didn't realise Ringer had been released. I'm pleased to hear this was just as good as the other books in the series.

    A great review! :-)
