BOOK REVIEW: Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas | GEEKY MYTHS
Okay, so as you guessed, I wasn’t a fan of the romance between them because surprise!! Hardy wanted Haven for the unique person she was, that drew him to her like a moth to a flame, and he showed eyes much she meant to him through his actions.
This intimate meeting of them, without knowing each other, extricated any doupts I might have about Hardy’s intentions or emotions for Haven, after he learned her name and who her family is.
In the other hand, we witness Hardy becoming as uncertain about himself as any man can be when he finaly finds the person that matters the most in his life, and that weakness made him even more perfect for me.
I was so glad when Haven finally stood up to her and that Jack heard the whole conversation and fired her ass!
In my opinion, she might be the most technically skilled historical romance author out there’ Smart Bitches, Trashy Books’Unforgettable, beautifully etched characters; a flawless sense of pacing; and a perfectly executed plot imbued with an abundance of desire and danger are the outstanding literary hallmarks of the latest splendid addition to Kleypas’ Ravenels series’ Booklist’Witty, often hilarious, and delightfully passionate, this compelling, thrill-laced Victorian romance is another superb series entry’ Library Journal, starred review’Readers are introduced to the unforgettable characters and their original personalities through a delightful storyline peppered with sharp repartee and steamy sensuality’ RT Book Reviews top pick ‘Reading Kleypas’ long-awaited return to historical is akin to walking into the arms of an old friend’ Heroes and Heartbreakers.

What a perceptive, lovable, blue-eyed scamp! Christmas on the remote Scottish island of Mure is bleak, stark – and incredibly beautiful. When he throws her out after a particularly abusive night, Haven has finally had enough and walks to the nearest grocery store where she calls her oldest brother, Gage, to come get her.
I ordered kleypaas book and was excited when it came in the mail But then one of you posted a review and mentioned an in depth love triangle.
View all 6 comments. Hardy does something absolutely rotten at the end of Sugar Daddy, but he manages to redeem himself in Blue-Eyed Devil.
I liked that he was ambitious but Tutled loved that he was able to apologize to Gage for how he ruined Gage’s biofuel deal in the previous book. Although this book is still a lot more chick lit-oriented than I normally would prefer, I found myself taking it in with an effervescent fervor that I found surprising.
It suffered from Tell, Don’t Show syndrome. Haven felt passed from one patriarchal relationship to the next including her HEA. Mind you, it was never OTT or made me want to discontinue. Blue-Eyed Devil 1 2 Aug 20, Open Preview See a Problem? I’m this ornery all on my own. I loved the excrutiating sexual chemistry, the no-holds-barred attitude of Hardy and their eventual coming together.
I’d break any law to have you.
He’s a self-made millionaire who comes from the wrong side of the tracks. Of the two girls, though, Haven is probably my favorite.
Haven Travis was just an amazing heroine throughout this book as she had to go through domestic abuse caused by her former husband and for awhile, she could not trust anyone with her issues and was afraid to get close to any man she had contact with.
Of course he has his moments a certain gift was adorable and I don’t hate him, far from it, but for me that seemed too similar to a Kleypsa Adult book: Posted at Under the Covers Her name is Haven. Blue-Eyed Devil is, in essence, a continuation of the first book more so than most sequelsdevul up where the first leaves off and maintaining klleypas involvement of many of the original characters. Naturally, I was exceedingly thrilled to see Hardy get his day in the sun in this book.
Hardy has done many things in his life he’s not proud of, but now he’s trying to rid himself of his roughneck past, which doesn’t mean falling in love with a rival – no matter how beautiful she is. However, as Celia undertakes what ought to be a routine work assignment, she finds herself more closely involved than she could have ever imagined with a tragedy that has haunted her dreams for fifteen years; and it is Celia eydd is compelled to bear witness when the past returns to exact a brutal and terrifying revenge.
I fail to understand how rich heiresses lose the right to complain about their problems just ritled they live a luxurious life. That feeling was reinforced by Haven knowing she could throw an emergency line to him and knowfundamentally, that he’d titlde it. Somewhere in southern Germany they decide, on a whim, to visit Czechoslovakia where Alexander Dubcek’s ‘socialism with a human face’ is smiling on the world.

We read a lot about how amazing Hardy and Haven are together, but we don’t get to actually see it. As per usual, Lisa Kleypas has produced a wonderful read, and I cannot wait to continue the series with Smooth Talking Stranger. It was a decent read. Always Trust In Books Great reads, book news, blog sharing and plenty of bookish banter! Hardy is ambitious and he would do anything in his power to achieve what he wants, even it means selling people out. And fun to see her connect with Hardy.
I was even more elated when Hardy showed up. And Blie did cry.
