I was given this book in turn for an honest review.
Brie is nearing the end of her college graduation at long last. With the uncertainty of her future; she discovers a much bigger change than she ever saw coming. Kellan a Duke; a Prince, is happy to live his playboy life until he sets his eyes upon Brie. Will they discover their path to happiness or will their two worlds collide and leave devastation in its wake…?
Xavier Neal has left my heart broken and myself in complete tears. I devoured this book in less than twenty-four hours. I had fallen in love with the characters and their story so much I was completely invested. She built my heart up, piece by piece, giving Brie and Kellan the happiness and beautiful story they both deserved. Showing the world that two people from completely different backgrounds and up bringing’s can fall in love with the blink of an eye; to then leave devastation in its wake. Xavier Neal has talent and with each story she writes it shines through, more and more.
Brie is smart, witty, fun, outgoing and loyal to her friends. She works hard to get what she wants and to where she wants to be.
Kellan is a smart-arse, with great intentions. He not only has a heart full of love and care buried deep down that is crying to break free, he also has goals to help the less fortunate and not for the fame and spotlight it could give him.
Brie and Kellan’s story doesn’t have the typical push and pull that many others do and it’s a refreshing change to read a couple who are heading the right direction, without the drama and for all the right reasons. With this said, yes Duched does end on a cliff hanger but not your typical cliff hanger and one that shows the true love and beauty these two share.
If you love romances with plenty of humour and fun; you will absolutely love Duched by Xavier Neal.
