Publisher's Summary

She's from the wrong side of the tracks....

Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas - if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty Jones is a complication he doesn't need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them.

He's the one man she can't have....

When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty finds herself alone with a young sister to raise. Soon Liberty finds herself under the spell of a billionaire tycoon - a Sugar Daddy, one might say. But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family's past.

Will they find their heart's desires?....

Two men. One woman. A choice that can make her or break her. A woman you'll root for every step of the way. A love story you'll never forget.

    "Characters Come to Life!"
    What did you love best about Sugar Daddy?

    I had read and LOVED the book before purchasing to the Audible version, so I was hesitant to tarnish these wonderful characters with a narrator who might not be up to snuff. Jeannie Stith was amazing! At first, I thought she sounded a little young, but as Liberty aged, Jeannie's voice progressed also. Jeannie's version of Liberty was by turns sweet, touching, sassy, flirtatious, hilarious and just the right amount of sexy. Her interpretation of Gage was just downright hot, something I could never have envisioned from a female narrator doing a male part before I started listening to books (as opposed to reading them.) Similarly, her translations of Churchill, Carrington and Gretchen were spot on. The Audible version of Sugar Daddy (a title I hate, by the way, and think detracts immensely from this wonderful book) cemented its place in my top 5 list.

    Story
    "It just dragged on."

    Let me start by saying I love Lisa Kleypas but this book just seemed to drag on. The part of the would be love triangle didn't come until the last few chapters and was pretty uneventful compared to what I was looking forward to. If you read Blue eyed Devil and Smooth Operator you would probably want to read this one to complete the Travis tales so to speak. Even thought these stories aren't like the Wallflower to Hathaway series. Anyway I wouldn't say "Don't bother with this one" however it's a let down compared to her other books especially Blue eyed Devil which was so very good.

    "Cute story."

    This wasn't what I expected - title doesn't fit. It was a cute story. The narrator's voice fit what I imagined Liberty to sound like.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    Story
    "Alas, not up to her usual standards"

    Lisa Klypas can do no wrong for me and I usually listen to her Historical Romances so I was surprised and excited to see her delve into another era. Unfortunately I was disappointed - most of part 1 was taken up with too much of Liberty's childhood and love for Hardy that it became boring then suddenly at the end we meet Gage and the story seemed to speed up and then finish. You could actually just listen to part 2 only and nothing much would be lost.

    Narrator was just too young, which was fine at the beginning for the age she was but not all the way through.

    Message to LK the saying "if it ain't broke then don't try to fix it" applies - you had a winning formula and it didn't need fixing.

    Worth a credit? I liked the end so, for that it would be a Yes - but for the whole book then I'd have to say No keep your credit (and I thought I'd never say that about a LK book !).

    "Typical, but Very Enjoyable"

    This is the first book by Lisa Kleypas, I think. I enjoyed it so much, good story line. I went right on and purchased the next book in this series, Blue Eyed Devil and will get third installment as well, but no historicals. I always want to know what happened to characters in the first book as well as the books following. I did not think I was going to enjoy the narrator in Sugar Daddy, but she turned out to be good. I was reading reviews under Blue Eyed Devil--some were not to pleasing; I am hoping she does not disappoint me. Narrators can make or break a book. No matter, I do enjoy Ms Kleypas' writings.

    "Story WAY out of proportion"

    The first 75 percent of this story reads like a teenage girl's diary of her struggles and disappointments and is suitable for a middle school audience. The next 20 percent is the same thing, but during her twenties. The last five percent deals with her love life and plays more like a soap opera. I wouldn't label this a romance but more of a human interest story focusing heavily on one young character. Narrator did have a little-girl's voice but it fit the adolescent theme. Glad when it was over.
