Book Review: ‘Duke, Actually: A Novel’ By Jenny Holiday

by | Nov 24, 2021 | Books | 0 comments

I was a big fan of last year’s A Princess For Christmas and now author Jenny Holliday is back with the second book in the series. It’s as good as the first one. Well written characters from the first novel and a couple that you root for to get together. Dani Martinez is hoping to make tenure in a year at the college she works at. She’s in the process of divorcing her cheating husband, who she also works with. She’s sworn off of men and love. She’s looking forward to the wedding of her best friend Leo and Princess Marie of Eldovia (the main characters in the first book) in about a year. Then she gets a call our of the blue from Max (a Baron and someday a Duke and a player), Leo’s best friend. He’s in New York and wants to get together. She invites him as her date to a Christmas school function and they hit it off and become great friends. They open up about their lives and talk all the time, even when he has to go back to his home. Soon they become friends with benefits and we know how that goes. They both fall for each other but don’t want to admit it. Then a misunderstanding could end something great before it begins. A perfect read during the holidays for fans of rom-coms.

You can pick up Duke, Actually in stores now.
