Sugar Daddy – Review

img_2716That title threw me for a loop when I first read it. I would never be someone to read about girls with sugar daddies and be even remotely interested in that storyline. However, many of my favorite bloggers and bookstagrammers recommended this book and said not to judge it by its title. I searched my library’s catalog for it after their raving reviews and couldn’t find it, but magically when I showed up and looked for Lisa Kleypas’ spot on the shelf it was there! I took it as a sign, even though this book wasn’t on my TBR for the year (oops), and picked it up.

Guys, this book is amazing and so much more than the misleading title. I can’t express how grateful I am that I gave it a chance. I could have finished reading the story in a day, but instead gave it time to marinate and finished the next morning. I couldn’t wait long to finish Liberty’s story. This was a beautiful coming of age story, slightly more Women’s Fiction than Romance. But oh the slow-burn Romance in this book, it was to die for. I don’t want to give too much away in my review, because this is truly a book worth going blind into.


Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas—if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty Jones is a complication he doesn’t need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them.


When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty finds herself alone with a young sister to raise. Soon Liberty finds herself under the spell of a billionaire tycoon – a Sugar Daddy, one might say. But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family’s past.


Two men. One woman. A choice that can make her or break her. A woman you’ll root for every step of the way. A love story you’ll never forget.

This was my first Lisa Kleypas book despite having numerous books of hers on my TBR for countless years, I somehow ended up with her Contemporary series first. Now I want to absolutely devour everything she’s written. I felt like I was living in the book with her characters and those are truly the best kinds of reads. This was the type of book I long for with every book I pick up. I want to be captivated, I want to be absorbed and taken away from the world I live in to the world of fictional characters who feel like friends. This is exactly what was achieved with Sugar Daddy. Thank goodness I wasn’t a title snob!! Now I will further mutilate my TBR by picking up the next book in this series, because I NEED MORE HARDY.
