She’s his obsession.
He’s her downfall.
Raised in a remote town by men who would die for her, Shanna can’t wait to escape years of being babysat by the archaic mentality of the men her father’s MC. They live by a code. A code she’s done being part of.
But even in isolated places… there are people dying to take you down.
Duke and Shanna must decide if they are going to fight for their love or watch it crash and burn when both of them are forced to make choices they can’t come back from.
How far would you go for love?
I stopped in on a whim to see the old dive bar where my old man used to spend his days–getting drunk with his boys from the MC. But when I walked in and saw her… I knew I would be back and not just for another round, but to make Shanna mine.
She’s asking for trouble teasing me the way that she does.
She’s made a mistake.
A bad one.
I’m not like the pathetic boys at her college. I’m an ex-marine, and I’m gonna make my BAD GIRL pay. But I wasn’t expecting her to put up a fight. Taming her just might be the biggest battle I’ve faced yet, but I’m determined to make it the sweetest victory for us both.
She’s my angel, but I’m her devil.
Together we’re gonna burn.
“Duke” is the first book in a new MC series and got to say I really did enjoy this one.
It would have been a much higher star rating for this but there were a few instances here that really set my teeth on edge; which was a real shame as the writing style used here was so easy to get lost in and relate to.
So I will start with the good; this was well written, emotive and heartfelt.
I loved the main characters; both Duke and Shanna and was rooting for them all the way.
I adored that this was an age-gap romance; they are so my guilty pleasure; this was the ultimate cherry on the cake for me.
This was plenty smoking hot and the chemistry between Duke and Shanna was off the charts.
In fact, this was rolling along quite nicely and all was good with my world until; and here’s my bad; things went to hell in a handbasket.
Everything was so good and hunky dory; then major car crash moment or several of them.
“Duke” then changed dramatically for me.
we are now introduced to a bit of a love triangle and nobody has the patience to just wait a damn second for things to get back on track.
I’m talking about both Shanna and Duke here; both needed their heads banging together.
This kinda spoiled event’s slightly for me; I’m an all in sort of girl and not a big fan of my lovers getting their juice from elsewhere.
This didn’t actually go all the way here; so I could still kinda deal, but it was enough that it pissed me the hell off and ultimately spoilt my enjoyment Of Duke.
Was not a happy bunny at this point; thankfully our pair of lovers do eventually pull themselves together and get back on track; so I forgave them after I’d finished cursing their arses of course.
Despite my above moaning, this was still an excellent read that was easy to get lost in and enjoy.
The author did a fantastic job of reeling in the reader and managed to keep my interest throughout.
Another Dual POV tale which is by far my personal preference and Duke also came equipped with a great cast of secondary individuals which also added to the overall experience.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “Duke” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
