Suddenly You – Lisa Kleypas

Lisa Kleypas. Suddenly You. (New York: Avon, 2001). 0061259357.

Main Characters:Amanda Briars and Jack Devlin

Description from the book:

She was unmarried, untouched and almost thirty, but novelist Amanda Briars wasn’t about to greet her next birthday without making love to a man. When he appeared at her door, she believed he was her gift to herself, hired for one night of passion. Unforgettably handsome, irresistibly virile, he tempted her in ways she never thought possible . . . but something stopped him from completely fulfilling her dream.

Jack Devlin’s determination to possess Amanda became greater when she discovered his true identity. But gently bred Amanda craved respectability more than she admitted, while Jack, the cast-off son of a nobleman and London’s most notorious businessman, refused to live by society’s rules. Yet when fate conspired for them to marry, their worlds collided with a passionate force neither had expected . . . but both soon craved.

My Thoughts:

I found this book a better read than I had expected. I actually couldn’t put the book down for very long without going back to it. It was very different given that the female lead was thirty years of age and a writer. I definitely chuckled when it was revealed that Jack was actually only 25 years old.

Read first: January 15-16, 2007.
