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.

When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
I was not expecting much of this book, maybe an easy romance. I was surprised of the depth of emotion that it contained! The story rhythm reminded me of reading a diary, so much information is given. It takes a while for the romance to really begin, it was about 2/3 of the way through before things started heating up. The story it's is amazing however, I was thoroughly enthralled by the life experience Liberty has at such a young age. I loved the relationships that she has formed and how she handles love lost and found. Truly an amazing book!
11th/12th Grade Reading Teacher Love reading and love listening to audio books in my car.
The men in this series are too hunky for words. This is the kind of lignt, no-brainer books I love to "read." It's a little hard to get used to having the love/sex scenes read to me, but I'm lerning to deal with it.
Can Lisa Kleypas write or what?! The woman puts other authors to shame in this novel. If you???re looking for a classic romance you???re in the wrong section. However, this book only gets bonus points for bringing the reader through the journey of a woman???s life so that not only are you emotionally invested in the story, but you truly understand the decisions she makes when deciding between her two alternate endings. To say it???s one of the best books I???ve read would be an understatement. The narrator performs an authentic Texas accent (coming from a born & raised Texan - that???s sayin??? somethin???) and really does the book justice. Can???t go wrong ??? buy-on-with-your-bad-self. It???s well worth the credit.
I have listened to this book twice. Loved the story line and characters. Follow these characters in "Blue-Eyed Devil". What a wonderful sequel to Sugar Daddy. Buy it!
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 !).

Lisa Kleypas quickly became one of my favorite romance writers after listening to this book. This book has a mixture of difficult topics, sadness, and joy. Great book all around.
Make sure to "read" _Blue Eyed Devil_ which is the follow up to this book - great book as well!
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.
Sugar Daddy was an ok book. I enjoyed Liberty and the way the book took us through her growth. I just wish Gag would have shown up earlier in the story. The narrator was ok...just a little too high pitched. However, Blue-Eyed Devil(next book in the series) more than made up for this slow moving story. It's narrator and story were wonderful!!
I enjoyed the story. The second half was better more because it moved faster. The first part was way too detailed. Enjoyabe...like a good B movie. Reader's voice was way too high...good for child's voice but couldn't pull off mature voice.
This is the first book of a series and I loved it. The narrator is great and the story even better. It is so well written that you can really get a feel of who each character is and how they lived their lives. I have listened to all of them and I can say the story of Liberty and Gage is the best. Don't miss it!
