Just about perfect. Such a rich story! Kleypas clearly knows East Texas and its people. ( )

The Travises #1

4.5 Stars

I really enjoyed this book. Had life not gotten in the way so much, I would have finished it sooner! I did not read the synopsis before starting this book, so I didn't have any real expectations, other than a few good reviews (which I only glance at as I hate spoilers.)

In the beginning I had started to wonder if it was a YA novel, as by chapter 5 the leads were still sophomores in high school. Liberty was a strong leading lady. Her persistence and caring for her sister were admirable.

I thought Hardy and Liberty together were great, and as things started to happen and change in the story, I kept waiting for him to show up in the book more. Until Gage entered the picture that is. The chemistry between these two… whoa! It was awesome. Then Hardy shows up. Oy! Talk about a hard decision!

While I wish there was a bit more romance in this story, what was there was well written. Most of the book is spent reliving Liberty's story (from her point of view), and all the trials and such that comes along with being a guardian of a young child, at a young age, while not having access to a lot of money. Don't misunderstand, this is not a bad thing. It kept me listening and I never found myself feeling bored. I will definitely read the next book the series.

Jeannie Stith did a good job with the narration, her southern accents were great and brought me into Texas. I would listen to a book she read again.

[Monday, September 19, 2011] Every time I pull this book from my collection and start reading, I reach chapter 3 or 4 and I can't go on! And it's very depressing because I usually love Lisa's books... And I read great reviews about it, but I simply can't push my way through it... Maybe I will try for the fourth time later on.

[Monday, April ‎16, ‎2012] So a few days ago I gave this book another chance and now I can't stop thinking about it. I LOVE Lisa's writing. Every chance I get at my job I open the book and read on... I'm so badly in love with the story now, I can't wait to see what will happen next. Some scenes even made me cry.

[Sunday, ‎April ‎22, ‎2012] God!! I LOVED this book!! Though I wanted Liberty to be with Hardy but I have to admit Gage won me over, he is perfect. I totally loved the story. I can't wait to read the second book. I just ordered the third one, I hope there will be more stories about the Travis family. ( )

Not my favorite, but still a really solid contemporary romance from Kleypas. ( )

When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty finds herself alone with a young sister to raise.
