I can not recall another time when I read three books in a row in a matter of few days, but I just couldn't put them down.
I'm totally devastated that Smooth Talking Stranger was the final book in the series. I'm begging that she writes more! How could she not?! There is still another Travis brother left and he deserves to have his story!
Jack Travis is every woman's dream. He's rich, confident, tough and always in control and did I forgot to mention...he's incredibly SEXY!!! Ohhh the things he can do!!! In fact, he should come with a health warning: Spending time in Jack's company irrevocably leads to multiple orgasms and broken hearts! He goes through women like he goes through his socks. But one day a woman shows up in his office with a baby, claiming it can be his and he must take a paternity test.
Ella Varner aka Miss Independent is finally enjoying her life away from her crazy mother and sister, whom she hasn't seen for a long time. She's in a great relationship with Dane and loves her job. But one day she gets a call from her mother to come and pick up her sister Tara's baby and look after it, because no one knows where Tara is. Ella didn't even know that her sister had a baby, but the circumstances are rushed before she can ask any questions. According to her cousin who knew Tara, Jack Travis can be a potential baby's father and Ella is determined to get him to do a paternity test.Read more ›
This is the third in Lisa Kleypas comtemporary novels (following Sugar Daddy and Blue-eyed devil, both also fantastic books). The characters are lovable and the story is compelling and very sweet. Highly recommended.
I have never come across a storyline like this before so it was a real change!!
Thoughts on the characters - When you learn about Ella you find out she hasn't had the easiest of lives and when she has to take her sister's baby she doesn't know what to do as she has tried to stop sorting out her family's problems but she knows she has to look after the baby. She is scared of falling in love cause that means losing them to her so it is quite a emotional time when she agrees to take on the baby knowing she would lose it at some point. She finds help in Jack who shows that he is nice guy by helping her find a place to stay and help with the baby. This shows a different side to Jack who is portrayed as a charmer womaniser to everyone around him but the real caring side is shown when he is with Ella and the baby. It kinda makes him the perfect man!!
Thoughts on the writing style - The book is written in the first person style with Ella telling the story and you don't miss anything that you would get in a third person style as everything is detailed and you can follow the story easily and really get into Ella's character and what she is seeing and feeling the whole time.
Overall thoughts - I really enjoyed this book and the other two before this one and hope Lisa Kleypas explores more of the family. Being that the book is in the first person it makes it different reading and helps you keep interested as it is different from other books in the same genre.
The heroine Ella has her own fears with trust and intimacy but tries her very best to be strong for her family until she meets Travis and her world is turned upside down. Travis is not one to shrink back from a challenging situation and taking control making for a superb hero...
in a light modern way. She usually writes very very sexy historical novels - a far cry from Georgette Heyer!
