Smooth Talking Stranger

by Lisa Kleypas

Read for Readers of Romance Summer reading challenge #13 title read and reviewed in Sppring challenge.

Rated 4.5 stars

Back Cover:
Jack Travis leads the uncomplicated life of a millionaire Texas playboy. He makes no commitments, he loves many women, he lives for pleasure. But no one has ever truly touched his heart or soul. Until one day, a woman appears on his doorstep with fury on her face and a baby in her arms. It seems Jack is the father and this woman is the baby’s aunt. The real mother has abandoned the child to her more responsible sister. And now, Jack is being called upon to take responsibility for the first time in his life.

My thoughts:
So, I have a minor issue with the story. (it's very minor) When ella first meets Jack Travis he gives her the time of day. Any Houston CEO would never have seen her, much less let her make accusations in his office, in front of his secretary.
Other than that, I loved it. Jack was so smooth and cool. He was super hot, and I loved that he was into Luke!! Ella was cool. She was pretty self assured and I hated Dane! What a wuss! I love these Travises.

I figured out the twist but who cares. It's not about the twist, it's about the folks. It's about the journey. I gotta say, Ms. Kleypas writes great emotional journey stories. Can't wait for Joe's story.

I really enjoyed this book and I'm glad that it's getting great reader feedback. There were things that got on my nerves in this book as well so I totally know how you feel.

Wasn't Jack a dream boat though?
