The Duke Effect by Sophie Jordan

Avon, 2020


Sophie Jordan has never let me down before and that held true for her latest. A bluestocking heroine and a stuffy, reserved hero will always bring me running. And also, if you read her previous book, I’m sure you’ll be delighted to know that a certain love potion makes another appearance. *eyebrow wiggle*

I will say that the pacing of this book felt a little unbalanced for SJ book. She’s usually spot on all way through but I did find myself nearly 80 percent through this one  and wondering how she was going to hit certain beats before the end. And I also wanted a little more of the hero’s POV. But, generally, those are minor quibbles. This book was a perfect escape from the current hellscape that is our reality.

Thank you Netgalley and Avon for the opportunity to read an advanced copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
