Courte biographie
Lisa Kleypas began writing romance novels during her summer breaks from Wellesley College. Her parents agreed to support her for a few months after she graduated so she could finish her latest manuscript. Approximately two months later, at age 21, she sold her first novel. At around that time, she competed for and won the Miss Massachusetts title, and went on to participate in the 1985 Miss America pageant. She has been a full-time writer since selling her first book, and many of her novels have been bestsellers and have been translated into different languages. Though known for her historical romances, Kleypas announced in 2006 that she would delve into the modern romance genre. Her first effort, Sugar Daddy (2007), was a finalist for the RITA Award "Best Novel With Strong Romantic Elements." In December 2012, her book Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor (2010) was adapted into the Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie Christmas With Holly. She married her husband Gregory in 1998, and has two children.

Critiques

May 2023 partial re-read, downgraded to three stars: errr, this did not hold up - for me - on reread. I borrowed the audiobook from the library to listen to something while I worked on home projects and 1. the narrator really doesn't work for me. St Vincent's voice kept reminding me of how Toni Collette voiced Bryce, the antagonist of season 3 of The United States of Tara. . . iykyk because ICK! HISS! hate him! and 2. wow LK writes sex work/ers terribly. I got about 45% thru before I decided to move on with my life; there are other Sebastians to read about.

original 4 star (lol cringe) review: Anyway, St. Vincent is hot.

I am alone in my principles, but I hate epistolary deception. This series overall is not great and if I'm being honest Lisa Kleypas is not for me.

This book really put me through a lot lol and I have a lot of feelings about what I read. Content warnings at the end of review . This book gave me some similar feels as Sophie Lark's, "Brutal Heart" PARENTS ARE THE WORST!!!!! Or at least in this case, Haven's parents are the worst.

In my opinion, this book is not a romance rather it has some romance within it. This is a book about a woman who marries the wrong guy - and he's wrong for many reasons - and how she comes away from that relationship to live the life she was supposed to live.

We do not have a lot of interaction between the two love interests however each interaction leaves a huge impression and honestly my desire to see these two folks in another scene together drove me to devour this book. Kleypas is an amazing writer and she makes the pages burn when Hardy and Haven are together.

The last third of the book started to fall apart a bit - too many plot lines converging when I would have rather had more time dedicated to Haven making the life she wants.


CONTENT WARNINGS:
intimate partner abuse, gas lighting, physical abuse, on page rape, terrible family dynamics

2.5ish? I am glad the antiziganist slurs in this book were replaced, but that didn't solve the problem of the racist characterization of Romani characters?
