M.O.M. - manager of mayhem!
I love Kleypas! but this is not her best story or even characters...
Kleypas is a great romance writer... unique stories and great characters
The story made me laugh, cry, and of course there were romantic scenes but they were well done and did not make up half the book: which happens in so many of the books I've read more recently, form different authors,
Roslyn Landor always gives the characters their own voice and their personalities really come alive.
There's a part in the book when the main character's best friend does what he thinks is best for her. This tells you so much about this character and how smart or foolish he really was.
I always like listening/reading to Lisa Kleypas books knowing I won't be disappointed, The Story had enough spins to make it unpredictable. I hope the rest of the series are avilable in audio books.
After the first 10 minutes, I honestly wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but I ended up really enjoying the characters, the story and nearly everything about it. I didn't like the "bet" (don't want to spoil the story) and I thought the hero could of been much more decent and gentlemanly about that, but I ended up really liking the story and will definately listen to it again at a later date.
I especially like the stories that include humor and quirky characters. If you liked the dialog from Leo in the Hathaway Series or Sebastian in "What Happens in London", you will like this book.
There was a pretty good story here, but endless, needless, sex scenes that didn't further the story. If I wanted to read porn, I would order it. I'm not bashful of sex scenes in books, but once they started (in the second half), it seems that was all there was! To the point where it really detracted from the story.
Unlikeable, self-centered heroine is annoying. And when she hooks up with hero she continually tells him "no" and he doesn't stop. "No" means 'No". I couldn't finish this one and I love her Wallflowers and her Hathaways series.
Everything I read by Lisa Kleypas is wonderful. I especially enjoy that it is ready by Rosalyn Landor. She is one of my favorites as well.
She has so many different voices she can do. It's just so enjoyable listening to her.
As usual, Lisa Kleypas delivers a great story. Rosalyn Landor brings it alive with her reading/performing of the characters. Couldn't stop listening but was sad to hear it end. I will listen to this one again and again.
I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
Oh dear, for all Lisa Kleypas fans, she has outdone herself with this book. It was absolutely a marvel to read, I could picture everything in my mind as it was being read and the narrator Ms Landor did a fabulous job with the character and voices. A truly must read!!!!!!

I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
Lisa Kleypas has one of the most entertaining stories. This is one of my favorites. From start to finish i was entertained. I laughed through out the story. I enjoyed the storyline. I loved the narrator.She made this book awesome! Looking forward for my next book!
