H&H Reads: Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas (Part 3 of 6)

Part 3 of H&H Reads Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas is available exclusively on Heroes and Heartbreakers to members. Please log in or register at right to read the rest!


Lisa Kleypas recently announced that the next book in the Travis Family series, Brown-Eyed Girl, will tell the long-awaited story of Joe Travis (!!!!!). Clearly a reread of where it all began is in order, right? And obviously nothing beats being able to read (and discuss) a book together! So with that in mind...

Today, we're excited to present part three of the brand-new program, H&H Reads, with the Travis story that started it all—Sugar Daddy!

Every Wednesday and Sunday from now until September 1, we'll be posting Sugar Daddy in six easy-to-read (if not so easy to wait for!) parts. Right before each new part goes up, we'll be taking down the previous one, so make sure you don't miss a single piece of the book. Whether you're a long-time fan of the book or completely new to the Travises, we hope you'll read along and then come discuss each section of the book with us!

Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas—if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty is a complication he doesn’t need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them.

When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty finds herself alone with a young sister to raise. Soon Liberty is under the spell of a billionaire tycoon—a Sugar Daddy, one might say. But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family’s past.


Chapter 10

The sight of a sullen teenager is common no matter where you go. Teenagers want things so powerfully and can never seem to get them, and to add insult to injury, people make light of your feelings because you’re a teenager. They say time will mend a broken heart and they’re often right. But not where my feelings for Hardy were concerned. For months, all through the winter holidays and beyond, I just went through the motions, distracted and gloomy and of no use to anyone including myself.

The other thing feeding my sullenness was Mama’s flourishing relationship with Louis Sadlek. Their pairing caused me no end of confusion and resentment. If there was ever a moment of peace between them, I never saw it. Most of the time they got along like two cats in a sack.
