She thought she was broken, but instead she was so very brave by getting help, learning to put boundaries in place with her over-powering family and standing up for herself.
I almost needed an interpreter at times and even had to replay it to catch the meaning. And he treats women with respect and consideration. I think Haven was suffering from Savior Complex syndrome because the romance bluf forced.
I can’t express how much I loved this book! I honestly didn’t feel that he loves her kleyoas all. Coming out of a bad marriage Haven has attracted the attention of Hardy, a rival of the family.
I could identify with Haven’s tendency to want to make others happy, often at her own expense. I’ve been in a massive book hangover this week and I couldn’t read anything new. I have to tell you, I am not saying this lightly. I loved the excrutiating sexual chemistry, the no-holds-barred attitude of Hardy and their eventual coming together. The way in which she shows the interactions between people is very true to life.
Mind you, it was never OTT or made me want to discontinue. Rather than berate myself for taking so long to read this, I’m glad to have finally succumbed to the awesomeness that is Lisa Kleypas.

Maybe it’s just me and my picky ass reading tastes? I liked that Kleypas kept his hell-rising personality. ,isa other words, she stuck to the essentials and left the events and their aftermath to speak for themselves.
I only wish the next chapter had carried on this light-hearted romantic theme. She made a really bad decision of marr I’ve been in a massive book hangover this week and I couldn’t read anything new.
Blue-Eyed Devil (Travises, #2) by Lisa Kleypas
Somehow I noticed more details about the two protagonists, Hardy kelypas Haven, that I missed the first time. Gage and Liberty offered her that abiding love. Haven prefers to hide, not socialize, but she wills herself to endure the crush of patrons at the bar until she spots the devil-blue-eyed man she had tried to forget from an earlier encounter.
We are left to ponder too much and he remains an elusive mystery, which is just a shame because damn, the boy is smoking H-O-T! Review is also on: The second half of the book we saw Haven healing and leaning on her family for support. Blue-Eyed Devil was my first LK novel and it left me wondering, agonizing, why it took me so damn long to read her work.
I hurt for her that this led her into such a terrible situation with her husband. But there may be more to Hardy than meets the eye, but Haven isn’t sure if she’s ready to handle a man like him.
So the beginning drags a near four-star down. In Jack’s view, you are obliged to eyes on Saturday night so you’d have something to atone for Sunday morning. Now, I am going to start getting all flirty whenever I am talking about Hardy Cates, the hero of the story, since he has become one of my most favorite romance heroes of all time! Especially if the man knows what he’s doing, which I have no doubt Hardy does. Haven is kind, stubborn and sweet. Haven is an objectified woman passed around from man to man, beginning with her father to her abusive husband and then to her lsia lover, Hardy.
This one was much more like a standard romance and oh yeah, Haven and Hardy’s bedroom scenes were hot! Unfortunately her family was right, and the man she married was not who she thought he was. Haven was a beautifully layered character. Her horrible relationship with her ex-husband was hard to see kleypaz at least she was able to get out with the help of Her brother Gage who was wonderful in this book too.
I couldn’t believe the experience Haven went through, always doubting her self and her mind.
