“I was disappointed with this book, I was looking forward to her first contemporary as I love her historical novels but the book did not meet any of my expectations. I hope that her next one isn't the same.”see full review » see other reviews »

When Liberty moves to trailer park, rescued from neighbor dogs by Hardy Cates, falls madly in love. when she gets contacts age 15 he becomes more aware of her but refuses to ever do more than kiss. when she sees him making out at party she hooks up with HS BF, not great. At fair he buys her necklace, makes out with her but leaving tomorrow for oil rig (dangerous job where her dad died), cant sleep with or wont ever leave and don't want to end up like his loser dad. Her mom dates trailer trash manager, dies in MVA with him. SHe gets guardianship of little sister. Gets free adm to beauty school, meets old tycoon who notices her and starts getting manicures. offers for her and sis to move in as personal asst. His son Gage is dick to her. When she makes chick/dumplins for him while sick he makes move on her, she denies him. when daughter ziplining she freaks, he consoles and they make out. He goes to break up with Barbie. Tycoon dad arranges dinner and they hook up after. Go to fancy party and Hardy shows up now wealthy. They kiss, Gage gets pissed, takes her home, they make out in limo.

“I like Lisa Kleypas's regency books. I liked the Wallflower series and adored the Hathaway family series, reading those books twice. I didn't think I liked this contemporary book Sugar Daddy. I even said out loud it wasn't a good book about halfway through. Kleypas seemed to have her heroine Liberty Jones narrating as if looking at her life from afar - as in "I did this. And then I did this. And after that I did this." Because of that narrative style even her hardship & tragedy didn't seem that trying or tragic. However, throughout the novel Kleypas would throw in real nuggets such as, keep from crying by putting your tongue on the roof of your mouth, or having me laughing out loud, as in when she named her sister Carrington after the family on Dynasty. By the end of the book I was hooked and immediately started the second book on the Travis family. So I give this book a begrudging 4 stars which it probably doesn't deserve, but which I feel like bequeathing it.”buckycatt wrote this review Saturday, September 7, 2013.

“I loved this story of a Texas girl who has to grow up way too soon. Her single mother struggles to rase one daughter then finds herself pregnant with another baby. Their lives get hard but then they get even harder when tragedy strikes. Liberty Jones is a woman I can respect, and I enjoyed her heart wrenching story.
Liberty has never been allowed to develop normal relationships, her responsibilities would make most adults run for cover. She doesn't, she works her tail off. Sometimes she gets nailed to the wall, but she unhooks herself gets up and moves ahead.
There are several men in her life, one breaks her heart, one offers her a future and one really loves her. I loved all three wonderful men with their stupid men problems. I do have to say I want my own Gage after meeting him.
I am already reading the next book.”
“Really good contemporary romance novel. Young Texas girl becoming woman
is torn by her poor upbringing and the rich people that she comes in
contact with. Liked the main character a lot, as well as the two main
love interests. ”
“Not my favorite, but still a really solid contemporary romance from Kleypas.”Lovelypenny wrote this review Monday, September 10, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

Definitely an ending that made me smile and sigh and want to read the whole thing over again! Must read! If you haven't, pick it up today.”Janelle L wrote this review Friday, August 3, 2012.

“I usually don't enjoy reading stories where love triangles are the premise because its usually clear to the reader which person the heroine or hero belongs with, but this story did not disappoint. There characters are great, and Kleypas has a way of making the reader grow attached to the characters she creates--Liberty, Carrington and the Travis family are no different. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.”MandyLou wrote this review Sunday, June 3, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
