Never Kiss A Duke by Megan Frampton | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To Never Kiss A Duke by Megan Frampton?

Never Kiss A Duke by Megan Frampton is the first of the Hazards of Duke series. I started by reading the second book from the series, Tall Duke And Dangerous. I know, reading them out of order is kind of weird. Alas, them’s the breaks. Anyways, I had decided to listen to this book to A) get it off my TBR cart and B) get the context for the beginning of the series that I may have been missing by reading the second book first. Also, I had listened to the second book and thought it was a good idea to keep consistent with the format.

What’s The Story Here?

Sebastian is the Duke of Hasford. He’s got it all – wealth, privilege, you name it. That is, until he finds out that he isn’t actually a duke. So, Sebastian has to get a job which is a completely new experience to him. He ends up hired on the spot while in a gambling den owned by Miss Ivy. She gambled it all and won her gambling den. Ivy is actually really awesome – a working woman with her head on straight. However, there are some sparks between her and Sebastian and she has to keep it business.

How Did I Like Never Kiss A Duke by Megan Frampton?

I thought that Never Kiss A Duke was an okay read. Admittedly, I was not all that invested. However, Ivy is an excellent character. I am always down for a competent business woman as main character. She is really likable and someone you root for. Also, I liked that Sebastian had to figure out working for a living. It made this romance a little bit more relatable. The adult scenes additionally were decently written as well. Overall though, I just felt a spark missing from this book for me.

How’s The Narration?

Just like Tall, Duke And Dangerous, Megan Frampton’s Never Kiss A Duke is narrated by Jilly Bond. I don’t love the narration, but I also don’t hate it. Bond has a proper sounding voice which works for historical romance but doesn’t always hold my attention well. I had to listen to this audiobook at 1.25x speed because it is impossible to understand at a higher speed. That lead to me feeling impatient. If you aren’t an impatient listener, give this audiobook a shot.
