REVIEW - Betting the Bad Boy (Destiny #2) by Sugar Jamison
Release Date: 2 February 2016
The Bad Boys of Destiny are back and this rugged Alpha is in for the surprise of his life when he comes back to town.
Ten years ago, Duke King knew that getting involved with Grace Truman would only bring trouble into his already hard life. After all, the son of the town drunk has no business falling for the judge’s daughter…a passion that led to disaster and ended with Duke serving a ten year prison sentence. Duke never wanted to return to Destiny, especially now that he’s built a multimillion dollar custom car empire with his brothers. But when his sick aunt calls him home, he must face his past and discover a secret that instantly changes his life.
Grace never thought she would see Duke again, especially after years of silence. But when Duke comes storming back into her life, looking hotter than ever, and determined to get to know the son he never knew he had, she realizes that maybe she’d been wrong about him so many years ago. So Grace decides to make Duke a bet. If he can stay in the house with them for the next thirty days and prove he’ll be a good father, she’ll agree to letting him be part of his son’s life. If not, he’d better be prepared for a fight.
Going from single guy to family man isn’t going to be easy for Duke, especially with the still sexy, now fiery, Grace clouding his every thought. Can Duke be the man he never thought he could be or will his old bad boy ways be too much to conquer?
My Opinion 4 STARS
Overall i loved this book, however i had to give it a lower rating as the book overlaps the previous book, therefore a fair amount of the test has already been in the previous book. It has just been updated with the new perspective and the new female main character.
Duke is a good guy banged up for nearly killing a man after he disrespected a woman, a thing no King man will tolerate.
Both characters a pretty strong, however things could have been sorted a little faster if they had talked to each other. Duke also seems pretty bullish in that he gets whats he wants.
Very glad that they get their happy ever after, but it was expected.
