Daring and the Duke- Sarah MacLean, Bareknuckle Bastards #3

Daring and the Duke is the third book in the serie Bareknuckle Bastards, written by Sarah MacLean

This book it about Grace, the third member of the Bareknuckle Bastards, and Ewan, The Duke of Marwick.
If you have read the first two books, you will already know a bit about Grace and Ewan.
They met as young teenagers at the old Duke of Marwick’s estate on the countryside. They where separated a night, when Ewan attacked Grace and his two half brothers. Since that night, Ewans goal has been to keep Grace safe and reunite with her once the situation was safe from the old Duke of Marwick.
There is a saying- This meeting could have been an email.
That is how I feel about this book…. It could have been a short story instead. I mostly got frustrated by Ewan. If he would just explain himself, what his motive was the night when Grace and his brothers had to flee, then everything would be solved so much faster.
Since the first two books in this serie are excellent and very entertaining, I had high hopes for this last book.

Daring and the Duke is a bit too slow, it takes too long time for the characters to say what they really think and explain them self. If you have read the other two books, it’s kind of a must to read this last one. What did you think about it?
