    Re read 21719 Ten years after my firstoriginal read5 stars – Contemporary RomanceThis still remains one of my absolute all time favorite books I especially love the last third of the story from page 274 418 which I've read countless times The romance between Liberty and Gage never fails to make me swoon and cry I really hope Lisa Kleypas writes Carrington's book one day And I would love to see this made into a movie Edited 82413 5 stars – Contemporary Romance Sugar Daddy is the book that initially made me a Lisa Kleypas fan but I love everything she’s written I’ve reread this several times now and it’s still one of my top all time favorite beloved romances I can’t wait for Joe’s storyI really wish this series would get made into a movieOriginal Review 42409This is the first novel I have read by Lisa Kleypas and I mainly read it in order to have the necessary background to read “Blue Eyed Devil” and “Smooth Talking Stranger” both of which had sparked my interest I honestly didn’t have very high expectations of “Sugar Daddy” based on the mediocre book jacket description after reading some of the mixed reviews referring to it as chick lit rather than romance and that it’s written solely in first person point of view which isn’t my preferenceNeedless to say I was very pleasantly surprised and completely blown away by this book I read it on a plane and made an utter embarrassment of myself because I cried and laughed out loud through the entire book often feeling both emotions on the same page It’s extremely funny touching and emotionally moving I simply adored Liberty’s character and found myself rooting for her like a bubbly cheerleader She goes through so much pain turmoil and hardship and yet maintains such a positive outlook on life Witnessing her transition from an awkward shy self conscious adolescent to a strong independent courageous beautiful woman is heartwarming especially since she always remains true to herself and her roots and puts her sister Carrington’s needs before her own Liberty is funny brave selfless almost too much so caring loyal and innocent yet wise She’s one of the most lovable heroines of any book I have ever read I agree that “Sugar Daddy” is perhaps chick lit than romance considering that the romance element doesn’t pick up pace until about a third of the way through the book but I loved sharing Liberty’s life journey so much that I really didn’t mind it Once the romance factor does heat up it takes center stage in the story and although it’s PG 13 and I usually prefer my romance to be a little okay a lot steamier it’s absolutely engaging and beautifully written There were moments when I would have liked for some of the narrative to come from Hardy's and Gage’s points of view but the bottom line is that it’s Liberty’s tale and her life struggle and perspective are what drive the story As far as romantic interests for Liberty there are two main hunks in the story Hardy and Gage and initially I thought I would be a Hardy fan but I found myself being Team Gage all the way at least as the best love interest for Liberty Hardy might be sinfully sexy and devilishly charming but I found myself rooting for steadfast Gage He treats Liberty with so much respect and tenderness that it melted my heart like butter He’s an absolute dreamboat once she manages to get past his tough exterior and defenses The romance between Liberty and Gage is syrupy sweetI couldn’t get enough of itHere are some randomfavorite things that I loved andor laughed about in “Sugar Daddy” the emu story Liberty giving her mom’s delivery nurse a folder with birthing instructions and preferences the tender sister moments references to how Texans love to deep fry everything very true and southern cooking and recipes including my own sister’s favorite red velvet cake accurate depictions of the differences between people from Dallas Austin and Houston the sign “property of Liberty Jones” moment when Liberty gets custody of her sister serious tears shed there the relationship development between Liberty and Gage and there are so many great life uotes and valuable life lessons in this book that it’s impossible to mention them all I grew up in Fort WorthDallas have spent time in Houston for work have lived in Austin for the past 8 years and have family fromin various parts of Texas and I can tell you that Kleypas’s portrayal of Texans and Texas culture in all three of her Travis’s series books “Sugar Daddy” “Blue Eyed Devil” and “Smooth Talking Stranger” is uite fair and accurateTammy’s review here on GR is great and includes a spot on story background so I highly recommend checking it out“Sugar Daddy” is an utter delight full of laughs and heartwarming moments with characters to love and cheer for and terrific writing I absolutely loooved it and I would give it much than 5 stars if I couldso big 5 Texas starsThe Travis’s series has turned me into a big Lisa Kleypas fan and I plan on reading all of her historical romances now as well

    425 stars This was once again a book I would have never picked up had my favorite book pusher not recommend it to me Thanks Rachel When she heard I had never read Lisa Kleypas she demanded I read this one as soon as possible I picked up the audio shortly after and was so happy I did I fell in love with the writing and with Liberty Jones story Liberty Jones is a teenager living in a Texas trailer park with her momma Life takes her through a lot A baby sister her momma passing becoming guardian of said sister All Liberty wants is for her sister to have a good life and she is great to her She meets the Travis family and things really start to turn around in her life Especially when she becomes romantically involved with the oldest Travis son Gage Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humor giving you the thing you always wanted at the worst time possible Once it finally feels like all is coming back into place her first love comes back into her life and she’s got a huge choice to make I was very happy with how it all turned out After reading this I am definitely looking forward to reading from this author especially the other Travis brothers and Hardy I’ve already gotten book 2 loaded on my audible and am going to get to it as soon as I can A wonderful contemporary romance I highly recommend

    With already 446 reviews of this book I'm sure everything's already been saidbut I'll add in my 2 centsI've had this book on the TBR pile for years and I don't know why I love LK's historicals she's one of the few historical authors I read so I don't know what kept me from trying this one Maybe I didn't have faith that Kleypas could weave her magic with a contemporary as well as a historical? Well was I ever wrong I thought this book was just wonderful Yes there were just a few things I wish I could change but for the most part this book was perfection It had me in its grip from the first page and I enjoyed the sometimes sad sometimes triumphant but always compelling journey that our heroine Liberty Jones who aged from 14 25 in this book took from an East Houston trailer park to a Houston mansion I adored all the characters but OMGHardywords cannot describe how I loved this young manAs usual Kleypas's storytelling is first rate Her characters her dialogue her descriptions her plottingwell I felt I was there right along with young Liberty experiencing all her trials and tribulations right along with her And her description of East Texas? Well I've never been but she made me feel like a nativeI don't know if I can add anything else or convince someone who's at all hesitant about this book to give it a try But if you already have it on your TBR pile please pick it up If you like LK's Wallflowers or Hathaways series pick it up I guarantee you'll admire Liberty Jones you'll fall in love with Hardy Cates is there a mature understanding compassionate young man than him? and you'll swoon for Gage Travis You'll probably shed a few tears for Liberty and Hardy and what could've been and maybe even be a bit upset with the direction that LK steered this couple But no worries things had a way of working out the way they were supposed to and I was satisfied I will admit at one point I thought How can she keep these two apart how can she do that to me? But then I met Gage sigh and it was almost Hardy who? for me Gage If I had one thing or things to nitpick over things that held this back from being a 5 star read it was this I thought Gage got a little short changed on his back story and I would've liked to read about Gage and Liberty as a couple They didn't actually meet until late in the book and didn't get a whole lot of pages devoted to them as Liberty and Hardy's early years did I also thought the book wrapped up a bit too uickly I'm guessing that with over 400 pages something had to give but I sure would've enjoyed about 50 pages devoted to Liberty and Gage's story So my complaints had nothing to do with the uality of the story but rather the desire for Another thing I should mention was that this story was told in first person from Liberty's POV This didn't bother memuch But boy I would've loved to hear what Hardy or Gage was thinking Even a chapter here or there from their perspectiveit would've made a great read even greaterAny story that can entertain and keep me reading late into the night losing sleep as well as this story did is a winner in my book It left me wanting and luckily I am fortunate to have Hardy's story Blue Eyed Devil all set to read If it's as awesome as I suspect it will be I will be one happy reader 4 12 stars

    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humor giving you the thing you always wanted at the worst time possible The irony of it split my heart open setting loose bitter regret than I could bear Be aware that my review is a little bit spoiler ish; nothing major thoughAbout my ratingWhen you read my review you will ask yourself why I rated this book so high Well even though I dislike chick lit I think it wouldn't be fair to give it a low rating That's a personal preference and has nothing to do with the uality of Sugar Daddy Ms Kleypas is an excellent author and as a matter of fact this story is very well written It's absolutely engaging and Sugar Daddy kept me turning the pages Further I adored Liberty and I LOVED the extremely charming Hardy dreamy sigh Liberty is a very strong and determined heroine She showed some spine Kudos On top of that there are many interesting and complex secondary characters You see many reasons to justify a than average ratingI LOVED Blue Eyed Devil which is my absolute favorite then Smooth Talking Stranger loved it too and far behind Sugar Daddy I'm sure that Joe's story will take third spot pretty easily Conclusion I don't like chick lit★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩★✩Jeez I'm so very very glad that I read this series out of order If I'd've started with Sugar Daddy then I'm not sure if I'd've gone any further At the moment my feelings are so ambivalent On the one hand I'm pleased for Gage and Liberty but on the other hand I am incredibly disappointed for Hardy and Liberty After reading the first few chapters I thought they'd be the perfect couple I found myself thinking how sweet these two were together and they were supposed to end up together Their chemistry was great and I wanted Hardy to be her first lover Well this was not going to happen Unfortunately Then again I'm glad that Hardy found the perfect woman in Blue Eyed Devil I just can't help it but Sugar Daddy feels kinda wrong I'm not really happyIt didn't help either that Gage and Liberty didn't get enough page time By far not enough The focus of the story is not on Gage and Liberty's evolving relationship I wouldn't even call it an evolving relationship and Sugar Daddy is not my usual romance Well Sugar Daddy is not a romance story That's the moment to admit that I don't like chick lit Even though I adored the heroine I don't particularly like it when a story revolves MAINLY around the heroine and her family and friends I want to see the heroine together with the hero and that's the reason I love to read romanceGage made a bad first appearance after I hit the 57 % mark In fact when I was 59 % done he said Look he said curtly I don't give a damn if you're banging the old man That's not my business You're right I said But I draw the line when you bring it into this house It's not your houseSeriously?

  6. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) says:

    Sugar Daddy was one of those books that I dreaded reading in all honesty Let me tell you why1I do not like chick lit or women's fiction I like a story that has a defined beginning and a defined end that has landmarks and ends on a happy note To my understanding chick lit and women's fiction does not need to meet these expectations2I was dismayed that one of my most beloved authors was leaving the historical romance scene my most beloved subgenre within my favorite genre to write contemporary novels I feared that the amount of uality historical romances would be that much diminished than before with her leaving it behind3Because I am such a big fan of Kleypas I was afraid I would read this book and truly hate one of her books for the first time4Let's be honest I abhor love triangles Whenever I pick up a book and it has the phrase 'torn between two lovers' it goes back on the shelf I won't buy it I like my romance predictable in this sense I want to know who the heroine ends up with before I start the bookSo having said all these reasons I put off reading Sugar Daddy so long I am very glad I read it and I found it to be an excellent book Was it perfect in meeting my expectations? To say yes would be a lie I did have the following issues with Sugar Daddy1The beginning seemed drastically different from the end The book starts out as a coming of age story about a young woman Liberty and her journey through life the good and the bad and her all encompassing soul defining love for her sister The end becomes a romance story in which Liberty has to decide which man was right for her The large shift was uite jarring for me as a reader Although I dislike chick litwomen's fiction I am a great big sucker for a great coming of age story I read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte last year and that is probably one of the best I've ever read I'd also put forward Where The Heart is by Billie Letts I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou and of course To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee as my top list of coming of age stories I loved this aspect of Sugar Daddy I was transfixed by the story of this young girl and how her life evolved Then all of a sudden it became about which man would she end up with One could argue that this was part of her story and yes it is But I felt the focus had shifted from Liberty's journey to explaining which man was right for her almost a bit of show and tell to me as a reader I would have liked to see of Liberty putting the pieces together and coming to a organic understanding of the man she belonged with Also there seemed to be less focus on Liberty's relationship with Carrington towards the end of the story It was noticeable because of how prominent a character Carrington is earlier in the book It's not that I didn't want to see Liberty have a life and a love outside of her sister but I thought the tone should have remained consistent Fundamentally I was left with the feeling that I didn't know what kind of book Ms Kleypas was trying to write here 2This evolves out of my first issue I felt that the romance aspects were slightly underdeveloped In my opinion time should have been spent on developing the romance between Gage and Liberty In my opinion much time was spent on the romance or at least the evolution of Liberty's love for Hardy between Hardy and Liberty I could see in a general way why Gage was right for Liberty but I really needed for my heart to accept on a deep level that he was the right choice Part of this unsureness came from the fact that I think having Hardy betray Liberty was a bit of a cop out Yes we know that Hardy was committed to getting ahead by any means necessary But it didn't uite ring true for me Hardy was shown as a very good honorable person growing up even if he didn't believe it about himself Yes he was a bit of a skirt chaser but he stuck with girls who were up for the game His caring for his family and for Liberty and her family didn't match up with how he acted when he returned to Liberty's life So I was left feeling that perhaps Liberty would have chosen Hardy if he hadn't betrayed her that way That didn't convince me on the romance between Gage and Liberty Don't get me wrong Gage was definitely the right man Although I didn't get uite as much of a fix on him as I did Hardy I could see his appeal and why he was the man that Liberty would fall in love with as an adult But narrative on him definitely would have been appreciated3I really disliked the scenes in which Liberty was exploring her sexality with Luke who was her high school boyfriend and the guy she dated as an adult before Gage Now I will admit that this ties into my dislike of chick lit I like to see a romance between two people the heroine and the hero I don't want to see them having sex and being involved with other people If they had other relationships before then I'd like that to be in the past and not revealed during the book other than a couple of lines of exposition or through something that is revealed in dialogue I knew that Liberty didn't love those guys and she was a woman who wanted love So it felt wrong to me I especially hated the scene when she lost her virginity I was really mad at her for that decision although I could understand the pain that drove her to it This would have went over better with me had the women's fiction aspect of the story been continued through to the end without the shift to a romance But since the last 14 of the book was written as a romance this left a bad taste in my mouth I really didn't like the way things unfolded when Hardy returns into her life The passionate kiss with Hardy felt wrong Could you do that with an ex if you were deeply in love with a new man? Liberty wasn't the flighty kind of person who would do that It felt out of character to me Also the part in which Liberty decides to spend time with Hardy to find out if there was anything there In my mind if her feelings for Gage were so strong would she have felt right doing that even if he was a good enough man to let her? I don't know the right answer but it didn't feel right to me I think this is something that I would expect in a chick lit novel and not a romance One aspect of the book that I didn't really love but I could see why it was done was the attention to detail on the accoutrements of the upscale life that the Travises and their associates had I think Ms Kleypas did a great job of describing this through Liberty's eyes but I was kind of 'meh' about it To some degree those of us who grew up with modest surroundings do have a wide eyed awe at what those who 'have' possess But it is only so interesting I think I would have preferred time spent on showing Liberty's emotional interactions with Gage and his family to a greater degree Maybe dropping a designer name here and there and describing things as needed could have sufficed Perhaps this is unfair of me to comment on this considering that Ms Kleypas's phenomenal ability as a writer of beautiful vivid description is one of her strong points for me as a reader I think in this instant it was too much of a distraction from the emotional focus of this storySo you may ask how this book garnered a five star rating I have to give it five stars because it's a really good novel It really affected me emotionally as a reader And that is one thing that will always have a writer coming out ahead for me I found the love story between Liberty and Carrington to be the most beautiful and profound aspect of this story The scenes in which Liberty takes on this responsibility and shows her love for her sister excelled I cried numerous times reading this book Other reasons I give this book a five star rating The beginning is excellent The way in which Ms Kleypas describes Liberty's life in a small town in Texas really resonated with me It took me back to my time at this age Hot lazy summers kooky relatives and neighbors Having a family that wasn't always perfect but loving them hard and strong regardless The awkwardness of being a girl who is in that stage where she feels ugly and invisible This book could have been about a girl I knew growing up Maybe a little bit of me as well That identification factor was so powerful that I was sucked in as a reader I wasn't going anywhere and doing anything until I finished this story And then there's Liberty She's an unforgettable character She had grit and determination She had a uniue way of looking at the world She approached situations with the tenacity that I could not help but admire Her strength was the best kind of strength to me Not cussing out people or fighting at the drop of the hat but hanging in there enduring doing what had to be done to keep going and to achieve one's goals I loved Liberty being that kind of person And I wanted her to be happy I cheered when she did get her happy ending That's what I read this books for after allAlso there are few writers who can create such appealing heroes as Ms Kleypas Gage had a magnetism that reached out of the book and slapped me in the face in a good way for all the short time he had in this book Although he was a jerk to Liberty initially you could still see his appeal I wanted of him And then there's Hardy Well I fell in love with Hardy as a young man I could see why Liberty loved him so hard and so long That's why I had some issues with the way he was written when he returned because he made such an impression on me initially in this book I know that I definitely have to read Blue Eyed Devil to get of him and to see him become the man he should be not who he thinks he isWell for all the rambling that I did in this review I feel that I could not have possibly expressed my feelings for this book with the clarity that I wish I could It's so hard to unravel something so complex in such a short time for a review But I feel that I have captured the essence of my feelings about Sugar Daddy I do have to say a few things to Ms Kleypas to end this reviewThank you for having the courage to write this book Thank you for stepping out of the box and pouring your heart into this bookI'm sorry that I doubted that you could write a contemporary romance with heavy chick lit leanings that I could enjoyWill you please continue to write excellent books that challenge me as a reader make me cry and keep me up late at night because I can't bear to put the book down?Lastly I say from one huge Lisa Kleypas fan to another if you have not read Sugar Daddy read it I think you will find much of value in this book

    Buddy Read with the lovely people at the Unapologetic Romance Readers in April 2016Last night I would have given Sugar Daddy stars This morning refreshed and having thought about it I'll settle for 2 Gage starsSeriously Why was Hardy in this book to begin with? He was barely there for Liberty during her childhood And he couldn't help scratch her itch And don't give that I won't be able to leave if I have you nonsense because I don't buy itAlso the next book in the series Blue Eyed Devil is about this Hardy personRight Because I want to know him better He just seems such a nice guy and allOn the other hand the guy who actually loves the girl gets barely any screen book time And he always feels in a rush After all that long crap about Liberty's childhood we barely get a few pages that explain her adult life or her love choiceIn the spirit of this book I'll rush the end of my review and say I choose not to read the next one

  8. Geri Reads says:

    The first time I read this book I wasn't too enad by it First of all the hero and heroine didn't meet until halfway through the book Second I thought another guy was going to be the hero and I was rooting for him Turns out he wasn't the hero The latter turned out to be a blessing in disguise since this guy became the hero in the second book which is my favorite in the series So it's not surprising that I liked this better the second time around because I've gained some perspective on a few things especially with the author's decision to pair Liberty and Gage instead of Liberty and Hardy That said I would suggest that to enjoy this book you have to throw aside a few expectations For one this isn't a romance book Not really It does have romance in it but it's not really the central theme I'd say this book is like women's fiction or chick lit Sugar Daddy is all about Liberty's journey of finding her identity her strength and ultimately finding her one true love Two this book like I said is heroine centric Gage and Hardy still stood out to me but this is Liberty's story To expect anything than that would invite disappointment

    This is my first book by Lisa Kleypas I stumbled upon it a few days ago and when I realized a lot of my GR friends loved it I decided to give it a go When Sugar Daddy starts out we meet a young Liberty Jones She is living with her mom trying to find her spot in world dreaming about her future and falling in love like any other teenager She doesn’t have much but she surrounds herself with people that matter knowing that someday her life would be differentWhile fluttering through her young life she meets Hardy Cates There really wasn’t anything not to love about Hardy He was sweet sexy in his own right and he stole Liberty’s heart It may have been innocent love but Hardy held a big piece of Liberty’s heart that she wouldn’t get back until much later in her life Liberty would soon find out that the life she was living wasn’t going to get any easier But she was a fighter and a dreamer When she finds herself becoming the sole care giver to her younger sister Carrington Liberty has no other choice to grown up fast Liberty’s struggles would only shape her into the strong and independent woman that she becomes and when her life changes yet again she meets Churchill Travis He was her Sugar Daddy Churchill wasn’t your typical Sugar Daddy Their relationship was never sexual He filled a part in her life that she always missed He was the father she never had But there was to Churchill that Liberty would soon find out With Churchill in her life she is also connected with his family Gage Travis was the oldest of his boys When their paths crossed things were a bit stormy Gage was a bit surly you could say He had his reasons Liberty wasn’t about to let him rattle her though and soon enough she would get under his skin A place Gage didn’t allow many to be Sugar Daddy was definitely a great read I loved watching Liberty grow and change I loved watching her falling in love get her heart broken and fall in love again And ladies Gage is AMAZING I just love a guy that calls his girl darlin It just melts my heart every single time I really enjoyed it I’ll be starting Blue Eyed Devil book #2 right away I need a little Hardy ❤

    This is my favorite LK series Yes I know I know I'm mainly a historical romance reader Plus I've never really been thrilled over first person POV but these books sold me This book leading the series is truly wonderfulI still remember when I first saw the paperback was finally out in the bookstore and being so disappointed because yet another one of my favorite HR authors was bowing to pressure and going mainstream I wasn't reading contemporary romances at the time so I actually hesitated over the purchase of Sugar Daddy In addition I really loathed the title Ugh I started reading it standing there eventually grouped blindly for a chair while I kept my eyes glued to the pages then went running to the cash register my heart pumping erratically with adrenaline coursing to unmentionable pulse points for poor Liberty the pit bulls and Hardy Man oh man Don’t you love finding a worthy new book by a great author? I'm having the Big O just recalling itBTW at the risk of sharing too much I was right there with Liberty and the whole 68 thing and started reviewing my past loves Oh and the part about the emu? Absolutely killed me I was laughing so hard SPOILER added 41011view spoiler I liked what Kleypas did with though it certainly ruffled a few feathers and made people call it chick lit instead of contemporary romance I think it's a brilliant blend of the two but maybe I'm repeating myself AnywayzI think most of us have a first love or close to first love; one that was bittersweet; an if only young love if you will In this we can all empathize with Liberty I was right there with her falling hard for young Hardy gee why did she name him that? Kleypas wanted us toAnd young is the operative word here We do things in our youth and feel things so differently that the passions of youth can resonate still years later This theme is also accented with Churchill's enduring love of Liberty's mom Diana Jones However after Liberty’s journey I was ready to fall for Gage in all his sophistication and power and I did totally; he’s perfect for Liberty Yet just like my first love I wanted Hardy to be happy I think that is a true sign of love though certainly morphed into something else when you want someone's happinessKleypas gives that to Hardy – and us too – in Blue Eyed Devil where he struggles with the meaning of mature love and sacrifice too hide spoiler
