Out of the three books so far in Lisa Kleypas Travises series this is by far my favorite. I am happy that I started reading this series from book three though. If I would have read book one I would have never read the others. I really love the way Lisa Kleypas wrote this book. Everything fell into place and though it was a bit predictable, it was perfect. Haven falls in love with Nick who asks her to marry him only Nick has not asked her father for her hand in marriage.
Haven dances with her father and explains to him or at least tries to that she loves Nick and wants to marry him. Of course the dad disapproves and tells her that if she marries Nick he will cut off her funds and pretty much take her out the will. Haven decides to take a chance on love and eloped with Nick.
She loses touch with her family and moves to Dallas Texas with her new husband. Of course things start out fine, but soon life takes a toll on Nick and he changes with Haven. The things Haven goes through with Nick brought tears to my eyes about five different times while reading this book. Not only was she abused physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
I cried because it is so sad and women go through this all the time. They lose themselves in what they think is love and because of fear. Some where down the line Haven finally has had enough and decides to reach for help. She goes back home and starts her life over. She meets Hardy, who is in the book Sugar Daddy, and instantly she feels something for him. Because of Hardy's past though and her past Haven tries to keep her distance. She does not feel she is ready to let another man into her life or even have a little fun with a man.
It is very hard for Haven to get close to Hardy for a while, but Hardy who feels this pull to Haven does not give up even though the family hates him and thinks of him as the enemy. They both learn that they have similar baggage and learn to let go and move on together. I don't think either one of them expected anything to really kick off with one another.
This book can be a true story and a lot of women can relate to this book. I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it. It has a little bit of drama, obsession, a little action and love and romance. It is one emotional ride good and bad with a happy ending. Haven Travis is surrounded by powerful men; her dad and her brothers. All her life she has struggled to find her niche in the Travis family and more often than not, what Haven wants and chooses, ends up singling her out, or causing a rift.
Such is the case when Haven marries who her family warns her is the wrong man. Two years later, tail between her legs, Haven comes back to the family after that marriage ends. Coming home with more emotional and physical scars than one woman should carry, she struggles, once again, to find her niche in the Travis family.
All that looks to be shaky again when she finds herself falling for Hardy Cates, the Travis family enemy number one. Haven is a heroine you can really admire and cheer for. She makes some mistakes, owns up to her share and does what she can to better herself. She doesn't make excuses and goes for what she wants. She is a smart and determined young woman that even after getting her spirit stomped on, lifts her chin and keeps on keeping on. I adored her. We finally get some insight into what makes Hardy tick and Lisa Kleypas makes him even more delicious and desirable than he was in the previous book.
Considering his appeal broke the loveability scales for this reader, I didn't think it would be possible to like him more, I was wrong.
The exciting sequel to Sugar Daddy did not disappoint at all. I flew through both books this past weekend and was treated two very well rounded and different tales about fabulous characters.
There are some frightening and very emotionally challenging moments in this book; a few parts had me holding my breath in shock and shedding some tears. But there was also a lot of humor and the chemistry that smoldered between Hardy and Haven and the witty repartee they treated us to made it all worth while. This book has easily shot up the ranks to one of my all time favorite reads and it is one I will revisit again and again. Lisa Kleypas goes to a very hard place.
Anytime you describe domestic abuse, especially violent abuse, it's going to press people's buttons - there were cries of why did she stay, it isn't believable, she would never have done that, but that's what every outsider thinks when they look in.
It is unbelievable, illogical and awful. So Haven, is Gabe sister. Gabe was the hero of Sugar Daddy and this book picks up slmost where the other left off. However she is already engaged to Nick and off with Nick she goes, not into the sunset, but into a very dark night. I actually believed the abuse and thought Kleypas described it well. With a dominating distant father and a disapproving mother, Haven was an easy mark, desperate to prove how much she loved Nick, and unable, until almost too late, to see w hat was going on.
That part I had no problem with. Ironically, t he part I had difficulty with was how quickly she managed to find love again. I would have made her work for a year before bumping into Hardy Cates, and I would have found a way for her to grow and fight for herself against the manipulative female boss, and through that experience, be ready for a man in her life. I just felt she went from 'broken' to well too quickly, and she didn't really find her feet as find another strong and this time sane man to lean on.
But I did stay up to 4am really! I enjoyed it and think it's a keeper. Haven Travis is the only girl in the wealthy influential Travis family. Against her family's wishes, she marries Nick, someone she met at college. When Nick turns out to be an abuser, she returns to her family, feeling ashamed. Her family loves her and helps her try to recover from the devastation of the experience.
Then she meets Hardy Cates, a rough-neck oil man from a poor family who has made his fortune the hard way. Hardy helps Haven learn to trust men again, but Hardy has demons of his own and when Nick returns to Haven's life, she has to stand up to him on her own.
Haven and Hardy are both stong-willed and the romance between them is hot. It's fun to meet characters from Kleypas' former novel, "Sugar Daddy". I wonder if we'll see more of the Travis family in future novels. A great, entertaining read.
