Betting the Bad Boy by Sugar Jamison
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 loved the first book in this series with Colt and this book is just as good, if not better! This whole book felt very realistic. What I mean by that is that the characters and plot are believable. I can understand why she kept the kid a secret and I understand why he is upset. It all makes sense and is believable!!
Watching this relationship grow was awesome! I felt like I knew them. I could feel their hurt, anger and love. There was comedy and drama. This was a very well rounded book and that is part of why it was so good.
Sugar Jamison is one of my favorite authors and this book was just icing on the cake. Now, can you please hurry up and release the next one please!!!
