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 HEARTS' DESIRES OR WILL HEARTBREAK TEAR THEM APART?


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.

The blurb wasn't kidding when it said "A love story you'll never forget" because I have NEVER forgot this story...It is one of the best books I have ever read...as is the rest of the series.  (Smooth Talking Stranger being my favorite...I know...but Jack Travis is just dreamy....swoon)

I was reminded of Sugar Daddy this morning after lending it to a co-worker who finished it in a day and then told me how much she LOVED IT!!  Which always puts a huge smile on my face.  I love when I recommend a book to someone and they fall in love with it as much as I had!!
"Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humor, giving you the thing you always wanted at the worst time possible."
Sugar Daddy starts a lot different from most romance books.  Some may be turned off by the beginning, which is full of A LOT of back story.  I was almost turned off the first time I read the book, but I tell you .....KEEP READING!!  The book is SO MUCH more than what you can imagine, with a fun, supportive cast of characters!!

Liberty is SUCH a strong heroine, you can't help but feel for her from the start.  She is just amazing and so deserves EVERYTHING that she had coming to her.  You will follow her through the trenches of life, love and heartbreak, and you won't stop reading until THE END!!
 "But I think if it's the right person, you wouldn't have to work so hard at intimacy.  I think..hope that it would just happen naturally.  Otherwise, opening up to the wrong person..."  I made a face.
"Like putting ammo in their hands." 
I don't like to give too much away when I review because I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but Gage Travis with the flu has to be the cutest, grumpiest, most adorable hero EVER!!

WARNING:  You will need to just purchase the whole series at once because when you finish Sugar Daddy...You are going to have to find out what happens with the rest of this amazing cast of characters!!  And Don't fret ladies...this is not the last you will see of Sexy, Hardy Cates.

I read all 3 books. "Sugar Daddy" was the best. I didn't like the second book, "Blue-Eyed Devil". It just didn't work for me. And the last one was really good, too.

Natalija....Jack Travis is the MAN!! Blue Eyed Devil is very HEAVY for a book, but I have to say I loved it!! Lisa Kleypas did an amazing job with the book and the delicate subject matter!!
