About the Book

Wedding planner Avery Crosslin may be a rising star in Houston society, but she doesn't believe in love--at least not for herself. When she meets wealthy bachelor Joe Travis and mistakes him for a wedding photographer, she has no intention of letting him sweep her off her feet. But Joe is a man who goes after what he wants, and Avery can't resist the temptation of a sexy southern charmer and a hot summer evening.

After a one night stand, however, Avery is determined to keep it from happening again. A man like Joe can only mean trouble for a woman like her, and she can't afford distractions. She's been hired to plan the wedding of the year--a make-or-break event.

But complications start piling up fast, putting the wedding in jeopardy, especially when shocking secrets of the bride come to light. And as Joe makes it clear that he's not going to give up easily, Avery is forced to confront the insecurities and beliefs that stem from a past she would do anything to forget.

The situation reaches a breaking point, and Avery faces the toughest choice of her life. Only by putting her career on the line and risking everything--including her well-guarded heart--will she find out what matters most.

Avery...what can I say...she was a pretty cool heroine, and someone that I could easily relate to, I think I liked her from page one (see Scorpion scene). Insert Joe Travis (ahhh Joe), who is looking for a woman to finally settle down with, someone good, and kind and someone to have all those Travis babies...and of course he finds the one woman who isn't looking for love..at all...

What ensues is exactly what you expect from a Lisa Kleypas Novel...a wonderfully written story, with a classic and very sexy alpha hero and a heroine who you can't help but love...even when you wish the hero was yours instead. A secondary cast that has you laughing at times and crying in others...I felt like I was back with old friends while reading BROWN-EYED GIRL! To see all my old friends made my heart happy and that is the kind of reaction I want from a romance, one that leaves me with a huge smile and a warm heart.

Kleypas fills the pages with a love story that is realistic and a little old fashioned, and as always with a Travis man....very very sexy! I truly loved each moment, each page, each word...Truly Satisfying! 

Another winner for Kleypas!

And I got to see my Jack...Jack Travis...If you haven't read SMOOTH TALKING STRANGER...get on it!

I hope that Lisa is planning to write a love story for Ryan...he is the silent and sexy type and I would LOVE to see what he is all about underneath the buttoned up man!
