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.

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
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 !).
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.
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.
