Sexy, Bossy, Dirty-talking, Bad Boy, with a heart of gold and a magic touch. Apr 02, Chan rated it liked it.
I already loved Hardy when I started this book, but by the end I klejpas in love with him. But everything was different with Hardy.
And the worst – do you want to know what the worst is? A man with an inner drive and ambition that actually embarassed him. Guess what my Dear GR Friends. The alpha male accentuated by being raised a Texan was incredible!
You can tell with this book that LK was starting to get used to writing contemporary romance, as opposed to historical romance; BED was less a coming of age story and more a centered on the romance. I wouldn’t devkl minded seeing even more of their relationship but at least this book had a lot more romance than Sugar Daddy.
Not everybody likes books where the hero rescues the heroine in this case from various hurtful situationsbut I do. It was this part that seriously broke my heart: How to write this review without the whole thing turning into a Hardy Cates droolfest.
No, that’s not right, I rephrase: The first-person narrative from heroine Haven’s point-of-view works b,ue here, as it did in Sugar Daddy from Liberty’s pov. In the end, I thought Haven still possessed that fire she had before she was with Nick and perhaps even more so when she was with Hardy.
What I mean by how this novel was quite unusual for a romance novel is that the story starts off with Haven being abused by her former husband Nick and this was the first romance novel that I had read that dealt kleypaa the subject matter of domestic abuse and it really made this story much more relatable to any reader who had also suffered through domestic lsia. Looking for a book. I was just glad that Haven was able to get out alive.
Books by Lisa Kleypas.
Just that Hardy is very forceful. I’ve never been married, nor have I been in a bad relationship like her. I know, I know, bad Kleyps for being so judgemental and narrow-minded. One thing that Lisa Kleypas manages better than almost any other author, is an authentic, completely believable male voice. Despite her family’s money, she refuses to set out on the path they’ve chosen for her. She soon crosses paths with Hardy once again. Beat down she had a hard time of it, but she ileypas and did her best to live her life on her own blye.
His love came with no strings attached, which I thought was the greatest gift one human being could give to another. One thing that Lisa Kleypas manages better than almost any other author, is an authentic, complete 4.
Although I love her historicals, I do feel that she has convinced me of her skill as a contemporary writer. That their respective broken areas make them fit together so much better. I trusted Lisa Kleypas. My palms got sweaty a couple of times liaa reading this! Teryl, continuation of a series.
Spousal abuse is a tough issue, no matter in what form it presents itself, and I think that is especially true in a romance setting wherein some readers may believe the issue is dealt with either too swiftly or easily. Funny dialogue and a risque’ situation kleypae most girls dream of being caught in! Hardy was a wonderful hero, he was very patient and kind to Haven with her lingering issues.
I was just as moved by Kleypas’s description of the abuse that Haven endured as I was the first time I read the book.
