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.

A Terrific Read!

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!

Makes me wish I was in Texas & had me a cowboy

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.

LOVED it! Follow with "Blue-eyed Devil"

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!

Light Entertainment

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.

A little disappointing...

I thought this book was supposed to be about Liberty, Hardy AND Gage, but it was more like the Liberty & Hardy show. Gage wasn't even introduced until the last 3.5 hours of the book. It was a good book overall, but I feel LK went a little TOO in-depth into Liberty's past and didn't really give enough time to Liberty & Gage to grow their relationship.

Excellent!

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!

Great Author, Good 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!

3.5 Stars

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!!

Sugar Daddy

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.

Fun and Easy reading!!!

This series is a fun, easy read, essentially great entertainment. The stories are quick paced, dialogue is great, and character development is really good. Romance is true blue! Love the Texas slang and sayings...will order all in series.
