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 ..Show More »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!
This is another great book by Lisa Kleypas. It is the story of Churchill's second son, Jack Travis and Ella Varner. What I appreciate about this autho..Show More »r is that she spares her fans a repeat of the details of the stories of the rest of the family, providing just enough for new readers to place the family in context. Ella has always played the role of protector and counselor to her young sister Tara. So when the latter cannot handle her new born, it is Ella to the rescue. Believing Jack Travis to be the father, she barges into his office demanding that he takes responsibility for his child. Of course, this is just the beginning for these two. This has all the Kleypas trademarks, sparks flying, passion, humorous banter, a lot of heart, and of course a very dysfunctional family. I loved seeing more of Haven & Hardy (Blue Eyed devil); Liberty, Gage and even Carrington (Sugar Daddy). I listened to this book all day on saturday and could not put it down. I recommend it as well as the previous 2 before it by the same author. They are in this order: Sugar Daddy, Blue Eyed devil, and Smooth Talking Stranger. I can't wait for Joe's story now.
I read this thinking it would be the conclusion of a series. The Travis kids are all checked off the list..and that is how I think of this book. A box..Show More » is checked. The whole thing felt like it was just something to get through and get finished. Everything except the heroine's sister Sophia and assistant Steven. I would have preferred more of them and less of Joe and geez, I have already forgotten her name. I really like Lisa Kleypas' books and will keep reading her work, but this one was just half there.
