Publisher's Summary

She was unmarried, untouched, and almost 30, but novelist Amanda Briars wasn't about to greet her next birthday without making love to a man. When he appeared at her door, she believed he was her gift to herself, hired for one night of passion. Unforgettably handsome, irresistibly virile, he tempted her in ways she never thought possible . . . but something stopped him from completely fulfilling her dream. 

Jack Delvin's determination to possess Amanda became greater when she discovered his true identity. But gently-bred Amanda craved respectability more than she admitted, while Jack, the cast-off son of a nobleman and London's most notorious businessman, refused to live by society's rules. Yet when fate conspired for them to marry, their worlds collided with a passionate force neither had expected . . . but both soon craved.

Contains mature themes.

Sweet a bit racy but sweet none the less

There is a bit of sex during the story because that IS the story. If the readers didn't get it, it is about two people that shut themselves off feeling for anyone and the intimate moments broke down the barrier and in such proved what was said that when you leave this world the most important thing is in life - is to Love and be loved
I would recommend this for someone who wants a sweet love story
Lisa Kleypas did it again

Now this is how you write a romance story!

I loved the characters, Jack and Amanda. I was able to visualize the story very easily. I must say I’ve become a fan of Lisa Kleypas’s work. I would recommend “Suddenly You” to anyone that loves a good 5 Star romance book.

Too much sex

I know some people won’t feel this way but there was so much sex it kind of cut into the story. If that’s what you’re looking for you’ll enjoy the book I prefer the story with just a little bit of sex

Too modern

Modern story set in Victorian England. No research and not believable. Just write a modern story rather than revise history. I miss actual historical romances.

There was a small story line amidst all the sex scenes.

If all you like are sex scenes with little to no historical references this is the perfect book for you.

Finally!

I have been waiting for years for an audio version of one of my favorite Lisa Kleypas novels! Great, intelligent romance with great dialogue and interesting characters and good performance as well! Thanks Audible!

Finally

I've been waiting on this story for a loooong time. I was ecstatic when it finally came out. it's my favorite stand-a-lone story by Lisa.
I would have preferred another narrator. DON'T GET ME WRONG, she did a good job. I will definitely listen to it again and again, but it wasn't SPECTACULAR. When I pictured Jack and how he sounded, it was more deep and rich. The narrator used a higher register which was average, and to me, Jack is not average. At any rate, it was well done overall and I'm just happy it's on Audible!

Narration kept this from being 5 stars

The narration was too fast. I lowered the speed to .75 but that was slightly too slow. Very distracting and made this book hard to listen to. Also the narrator wasn’t the best even if the speed was corrected. She wasn’t the worst I’ve heard but not good enough to really make this book as enjoyable as reading it.

NO NO NO

I love Lisa Kleypas and this book may have been good. But the narrator was SO BAD it was unlistenable. Wish they would have this book redone but Roz Landor or Mary Jane Wells or anyone. Skip this. The Male voice is so bad! AVOID.

Can't believe I'm only now listening to this book

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! I'd say it's one of Lisa's best and I know I'll be listening over and over again. Yeah it's full of lusty sex, and that is just fine with me. I think the narrator did a great job as well. If you like a lusty book with a devilish Irish rogue then this book is for you! If you like Lisa Kleypas then don't be stupid like me, and wait several years before listening. Get this book now!!!!
