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?
I had the same problem with this book as I did with The Bad Boy CEO. I just didn't like the these characters and the description of this book is pretty much the book. It was predictable and (again) boring. I thought Grace was weak and a pushover and Duke was rude to EVERYONE!! And I HATED how he always called his son "boy". He has a name...
I really skimmed through this book.
So far, each of the these brother's stories are happening at the same time. So I can only assume that that will be the same for Luke, the final brother's story. Luke story also seems to have the most promise for me. He has been the only one I've liked through both books.
