Tall, Duke and Dangerous is the second book in Megan Frampton’s Hazards of Duke’s series. I very much enjoyed the first in this series Never Kiss a Duke, but this second entry in the series was just not my cuppa tea. Which makes me angry because I like Frampton. I think she’s an excellent writer, a great follow on social media, and an all-around badass lady.
There’s a lot of chatter in other reviews about what didn’t work in this book, so I won’t spend too much time on the things that didn’t work that have already been repeated several times over. What I will say is this book is another example of why you don’t always have to pair side characters for their own book. Neither of the two main characters felt fully formed and their love story was not as well crafted as I’ve seen Frampton is capable of.
The book got stuck focusing on the reasons why “not” that I never really understood the reasons “why”. These two both had horribly broken childhoods and I wanted them to get their ultimate HEA’s I just don’t think they belong together. And I have to wonder if Frampton even likes them because she ended the book so abruptly that I am curious if she bored of these two just as I did.
