Review: Sugar Daddy – Lisa Kleypas

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. 
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. 
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.
My thoughts:
I usually know that yes everything will be all right, but here I was unsure. I knew there would be a HEA, but would I get what I wanted? I just did not know.
The beginning was slow. Yes I know we had to see her grow up in the trailer park, meet first crush Hardy who she can’t forget, and get a new sister. But the whole start was moving slowly and then I realized this was more a book about her whole a certain point. Also the title seems misleading, there is no real sugar daddy. Disappointing.
It’s more a story about Liberty who is a strong young woman and who wants to make it on her own. She is protective of her sister, has a major crush on Hardy (which I never really got, no sparks there), and we see her grow up and start a life. Also seeing her sometimes unlucky in love, not a lot of romance in this one. Which makes me unsure what to make of the genre, it can’t be contemporary romance when there is no romance.
But when it picked up it picked up and I kept wishing the best for her and when the end came around I was happy.

    I have not read this author yet even though I keep meaning to, It seems that her books are really good or they aren't I am glad that you got your HEA. I love your verbose descriptions of the covers they always make me laugh!

    I was so disappointed with this book. I do love her historical romances, a lot, but her contemporaries, they just lack for me. I still have not read the next two books in this series, though I bought them 5 years ago or something like that.
