Blue-Eyed Devil (Travises #2)
by Lisa Kleypas
MEET THE BLUE-EYED DEVIL - His name is Hardy Cates. He's a self-made millionaire who comes from the wrong side of the tracks. He's made enemies in the rough-and-tumble ride to the top of Houston's oil industry. He's got hot blood in his veins. And vengeance on his mind.
MEET THE HEIRESS - She's Haven Travis. Despite her family's money, she refuses to set out on the path they've chosen for her. But when Haven marries a man her family disapproves of, her life is set on a new and dangerous course. Two years later, Haven comes home, determined to guard her heart. And Hardy Cates, a family enemy, is the last person she needs darkening her door or setting her soul on fire.
WATCH THE SPARKS FLY....Filled with Lisa Kleypas's trademark sensuality, filled with characters you love to hate and men you love to love, Blue-Eyed Devil will hold you captive in its storytelling power as the destiny of two people unfolds with every magical word. (from Goodreads)
I'm not one for reading a series out of order, so I read all three books in the series. I enjoyed them, they were quick reads for me and entertaining stories. I love Lisa Kleypas's historicals and I had wanted to read her contemporary books for a while now, I guess I just needed a reading challenge to get me to pick them up.
I like how the series stuck with all the siblings, I just wish we would have gotten Joe's story. While he's not focal in all the books, he's still important in the family dynamic and it would have been nice to have his story.
Normally with family series like this there is at least one sibling, spouse, or other family member I can't stand and that wasn't the case here. While they were predictable I wanted to read the story to find out how each couple ended up together and Hardy and Haven were my favorite. Following Hardy from his roll in Sugar Daddy I couldn't wait to see how he ended up with Haven and I wasn't disappointed with their story at all.
