Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Mass market bestseller Kleypas makes her hardcover debut with this entertaining chronicle of Liberty Jones's rise from the trailer park to life in a Texas mansion. The daughter of a Hispanic father (who dies during Liberty's childhood) and a white mother, Liberty pines for the hunky bad boy Hardy Cates while mom Diana has another daughter, Carrington, and scores the occasional windfall to keep the famil afloat. After Diana is killed in a traffic accident, Liberty raises Carrington, gets a beauty school scholarship and lands a gig at an exclusive Houston salon. There she meets investment mogul Churchill Travis, who takes a paternal shine to her. A horse-riding accident puts Churchill in a wheelchair, and he hires Liberty to be his personal assistant, with the catch that both sisters have to live with him. Churchill's oldest son, Gage, immediately distrusts Liberty, and their vicious bickering, as romance readers know, can lead to only one thing. Things get messy once Hardy, now rich, reappears and a Travis family secret is revealed. Though Liberty's plight and redemption are straight out of the soaps and the prose has its trite moments, Kleypas's many readers will root for Liberty, a fiery and likable underdog. (Mar.)

From Booklist

Money is tight while Liberty Jones is growing up in Welcome, Texas, but somehow she and her mother Diana manage. Having good friends like Miss Marva, Lucy Reyes, and especially Hardy Cates, on whom Liberty has a crush, helps. Then tragedy strikes and Liberty must take care of her younger sister and find a way to support them. Hard work and determination get Liberty through cosmetology school, then, while working in a Houston salon, she meets wealthy older businessman Churchill Travis, who offers her a job as his personal assistant. At first Liberty is reluctant to accept, especially since Churchill's son, Gage, seems to think she's a gold digger. Then, just as Liberty is settling into her new life and her initially frosty relationship with Gage is heating up and turning romantic, Hardy Cates, her first unrequited love, reappears. New York Times best-seller and RITA Award winner Kleypas moves from historical romance into contemporary women's fiction with an emotionally compelling and superbly satisfying tale of family, friendship, hope, and love. Writing with wit, wisdom, and warmth, Kleypas has created a book to treasure. John Charles

Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Jeannie Stith
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.

I'm a big fan of Lisa Kleypas and her historical romances, so I couldn't wait to see what a contemporary from her would be like. She writes this one in first person style, and at first I didn't think I would like the style at all. But I had to give it a try, and 3 hours later I was still madly reading! The story is powerful and heartwarming. You can't help but connect with Liberty as you travel with her from childhood to adulthood, I had to dry my eyes a few times.

I highly recommend this novel!

I can't wait for more contemporaries from this wonderful author.

Talented voice performer Jeannie Stith is amazing. Well remembered for her reading of My Sister's Keeper and The Secret Life of Bees, she also did a star turn as Bridget Jones delivering a perky narrative complete with British accent. Now, this gifted young lady has become the voice of Liberty Jones, a Texas gal with gumption. Her interpretation of Liberty's voice is a tad husky, fetchingly so, with a soft Southwestern drawl. (Think the speaking voice of June Carter Cash) Stith delivers a well paced reading ably reflecting with intonation alone Liberty's dreams and determination.

Welcome, Texas is home to Liberty and Hardy Cates. Both hope to see Welcome only in rear view mirrors. She has always wanted a family and knows very little of her own relatives. On her father's side they're scattered across the state, and for some reason Liberty's mother refuses to discuss the family from which she came.

One day as Liberty is walking along she is frightened by two pit bull dogs and begins to run. She slips on the pebbled path, falls, and covers her head with her arms fully expecting to be bitten to death. But instead of bites she feels two strong arms lifting her and she looks into Hardy's eyes. That chance meeting would change both of their lives forever. There is, of course, an immediate attraction and the two fall in love.

Hardy is an ambitious fellow and falling in love wasn't part of his plan for success. He leaves Welcome and a broken hearted Liberty. After some time passes Liberty also leaves Welcome and finds a job in a large city. Once there she meets and is befriended by a very wealthy older man, Churchill Travis.

First of the 3 part series. I Highly recommend all 3, and it's always great to read them in order even though they are great stand alone novels. Of course they are steamy with captivating characters. I love how Kleypas does research on a variety of topics and weaves it into her story, whether its her contemporary novels or historical romances. Never disappoints me!

Liked this book - great first book in the Travis family series. Kleypas brings both the depth of sibling love and the pain of unrequited love alive within the pages of this book. Well written, with a lovable, admirable heroine. Enjoy!
