Wow. This was great! When I read the description on the back, I thought I knew what it was about. I was wrong. It was better. You go through a range of emotions reading this book and I couldn't put it down. Ignore what your gut tells you when you read the title. This is definitely one of those "you can't judge a book from its cover" types.
This is Kleypas' first outing in the contemporary market. She does not disappoint.
I won't say what the book is about, but it's not what you think. Give yourself plenty of time to read it because you are not going to put it down. It's a really great book and I truely hope that one character gets his own story.
I am a big fan of her historical romances and this was another great book by Lisa Kleypas. I have to say though that I think one of the characters change in personality at the end was a little unbelieveable, or maybe it just didn't end the way I wanted it to end. Definitely worth a read.
First off, this was a really good book. No question. But it was a lot more than a romance, somebody told me it was more chick-lit, but I don't agree with that either. There was just a lot going on in this book. Liberty is an incredibly strong person and I admire her tremendously. I really did not undertsand the relationship with her sister and mother, and probably never will. But, that's okay. Gage was incredible too. I wish there was more detail in how their relationship began. That's always the sweetest part of any love story. Then there's Hardy, a lot of people said they didn't get him in the end. I did. It wasn't really hard to understand for me. I loved him in Blue Eyed Devil, and nothing's changed for me, I still liked that book better.
I read Blue-Eyed Devil fisrt and I adored it, it was one of the best books I've ever read. This was a great book but I can't give it as high of a review just because I like the next one better. Lisa writes heart wrenching and warming stories, I love the drama, the heat and the realism of her contemporary series. I highly recommend this series, even if you don't read them in order!
Currently 5/5 Stars.
