My rating: 4 stars out of 5 stars
They 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.’

*I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

I was excited when I was offered the opportunity to review Ringer by C.J. Duggan. I am a fan of her Summer series and of her writing, so I jumped at the chance to read this novella and I wasn't disappointed. I fell in love with the characters and the story line.

This story was written from dual points of views. In this novella we are introduced to Ringer and Miranda who are two complex characters that have chemistry. I would like to call it love hate but there isn't much love in the beginning so to speak. But there is a lot of pranks and shenanigans that does happen which made the book that much better.

Ringer is a bad boy in the sense that he's known for sleeping around and not liking commitment. He's hot and needs an attitude adjustment, but he is like a teddy bear on the inside. I love that he is willing to push right back when Miranda gives him shit. I really enjoy Miranda's character, she seems all high strung but in the inside she's nice and cares a lot more than she lets on. Miranda and Ringer are perfect for each other and their pranks had me laughing all night long (cause of course, I couldn't put it down until I finished).

There were, however, some parts where I wanted to wring Miranda's neck, but other than that I felt that Ringer was a great read. I found it was funny, and quick paced, just what I needed at the time. This is the perfect read if you want to read a romantic comedy, don't put it off any longer.
