I had never read anything from this author before and I'm so glad I've discovered her. The best way to enjoy her books is to read them in order. I would recommend starting with this book, Sugar Daddy. Then go on to Blue Eyed Devil and then Smooth Talking Stranger. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book, which I'm hoping will be about the youngest brother. These books are nice, relaxing and enjoyable. If you like romance books, then I think you'll like this series.
This was one of my first Audible purchases and I've listened to it many times over the years. It's like comfort food- nothing fancy but always satisfying. The narrator leaves something to be desired- reads too fast and her voices are strained. Despite that, it's a good rags-to-riches tale, and I enjoyed the sequels too.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
One of the good audios I listened to . I stopped reading contemporary romance and been addicted to historical . This book brought me back to contemporary . It was a bit distracting at the first half ofthebook. But it caught up and the second half was amazing.
I always adore incorporation of family ties and paternal emotions and struggles into a story. So I loved Liberty's interaction and struggles to take care other younger sister.
She was a really good narrator !!! I enjoyed her voice for both males and females and also children. She is so animated
I recently fell head-over-heels in love with this auther's historical romances, but few of these have been available on audible, so I decided to give "Sugar Daddy" a try. This book is AWESOME. This auther captures her characters with such a natural and authentic light--I feel like I'm there, and I don't want to leave! I haven't even finished listening to this book for the first time and I'm already looking forward to another go-around.
rags to riches story. young love , possible second chances. growing pain, developing character. this story is very touching. it covers different types of loss and shows how struggle can have different impact on each individual.
I either read or listen to this one over and over it is certainly a go-to of mine. The whole series really. the narrator is perfect.

Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Jeannie Stith
The Travises #1
I really enjoyed this book. Had life not gotten in the way so much, I would have finished it sooner! I did not read the synopsis before starting this book, so I didn't have any real expectations, other than a few good reviews (which I only glance at as I hate spoilers.)
In the beginning I had started to wonder if it was a YA novel, as by chapter 5 the leads were still sophomores in high school. Liberty was a strong leading lady. Her persistence and caring for her sister were admirable.
I thought Hardy and Liberty together were great, and as things started to happen and change in the story, I kept waiting for him to show up in the book more. Until Gage entered the picture that is. The chemistry between these two… whoa! It was awesome. Then Hardy shows up. Oy! Talk about a hard decision!
While I wish there was a bit more romance in this story, what was there was well written. Most of the book is spent reliving Liberty's story (from her point of view), and all the trials and such that comes along with being a guardian of a young child, at a young age, while not having access to a lot of money. Don't misunderstand, this is not a bad thing. It kept me listening and I never found myself feeling bored. I will definitely read the next book the series.
Jeannie Stith did a good job with the narration, her southern accents were great and brought me into Texas. I would listen to a book she read again.
I listened this complete in one sitting. Could not put it down. This is the best audio I ever listened to. I have read every book Ms Kleypas have ever written. I truly enjoy every word, they let me escape all my pain and worries. Also I need to commend Ms Stith, she is the best narrator of the female gender I have ever heard. I look forward in hearing her again. Thank you Lisa for writing a great Travis series. Submitted by Regina McCort.
Probably. I loved the narration and story so I'll likely listen to it again in a year or two.
I loved all of the characters but my favorite was Carrington. She was adorable and funny and the narrator did her voice and reactions perfectly.
I haven't yet but I plan to at some point. I noticed that she hasn't narrated very many books (13) so I'm hoping that she will be adding to her audiobook work in the future which will increase the selection available.
I plan to read/listen to the whole Travis Family series. I just wish that the same narrator had done all of them because I loved her performance.
