I love love love stories like these! Lisa Kleypas has slowly turned into one of my estatf contemporary romance novelist. I need more stories like this, any ideas for similar novels?? I could get the first 2 books of this series first, but this looks so much better!
Would the plot make sense if I read esstate book first before the other two? As per my understand, one of the protagonists are from a rich family – the “Travises”. If that’s the only estqte that links them, would it be ok to read this out of order?
Jaimie I read this one first too – it made sense and even though dalda had some references to the other Travises, it wasn’t confusing. I also thought this book …more I read this one first too – it made sense and even though it had some references to the other Travises, it wasn’t confusing.

The hero was little more than a cardboard cut-out, and it was never clear why he was initially attracted to the heroine.

He does her some significant favours klepas the basis of an implicit attraction that we know is there simply because it has to be, but we get very little sense of what’s causing it. The heroine also mostly feels like a paper cut-out. Even though the narrative is in first person from her perspective, there seems to be little depth to her character.
Not that she herself is shallow, but that we only superficially get to know her. Her sister and initial boyfriend, both of whom play important roles in the story, do not come across as real people, which doesn’t help us get a sense of her as a person.
Also I didn’t find the heroine assertive enough when her sister makes completely unfair accusations about her being selfish and controlling – we’re told the sister is in a mentally and emotionally vulnerable place and I respect that, but I think the heroine does herself and her sister a disservice by letting the truth slide on this issue.
We’re told that she herself has had helpful therapy and we can see that she’s still got things to work out and that the romance is supposed to help her with it, but it was cald to see how little self-respect she still seems to have in dealings with unw family. I expect a romance heroine to have her issues mostly solved or at least addressed by the end, otherwise the happy ending isn’t believable. This heroine is in some ways still too fragile at the end.
The plot was a standard-feeling mix of stock situations, un-exciting but competently handled. The ending was utterly lacking in heft, though it did tie up loose ends as needed.
Good shorthand source for klehpas elements of dramatic tension. She was sometimes good at lkeypas boundaries, so points for that, and it does make sense that she kldypas learning to adjust those czlda. And of course the romance plot had to move forward. But none of that excuses the slightly skeevy feeling of the hero ignoring her when she says she wants to stop kissing etc. This hero has IMO the proper kind of history for a historical romance rake, or at least he felt that way – fleetingly involved with lots and lots of women who are mostly easily accessible to him, knows his limits ie is scrupulous with regard to estahe ie not taking advantage of the drunk sister Mostly in it for the pleasure, but the whole thing is framed by that disappointment.
Hna was just alright. I was pretty bored throughout the whole thing but kept reading because none of the books I put on hold at the library have come in yet and I have nothing else to read right now.
Ultimately, my main qualm with this book is the lack of emotional depth between the two main characters. Like I definitely appreciate a bit of fun instalove in YA or erotica, but this is literally a romance. It’s main objective is to tell texad two people falling in love.
Alice (Italy)’s review of Una calda estate in Texas
But both cha dnf at pg But both characters were painfully forgettable, and despite their strange situation with the heroine’s sister’s baby, there was no buildup.
Isn’t that the point of these books? Like it’s not focusing on sex or some fantasy realm. It’s just a boring romance with no character development. Just bland, plain girl with a stubborn attitude and fancy, smokin’ hot millionaire man who just randomly falls head over heads for this boring lady. Maybe I’m also a bit too young to like this generation of romance authors? Idk, it doesn’t seem like an absolute, but I find them harder to relate to generationally. Basically I’m just rambling here at this point and hoping that my books come in at the library.
Before I give my review I have to state for the record that I was already biased against this book. And my reasons are this: I don’t like romance novels with babies in them. You give the heroine a child, especially a small one, and I immediately am annoyed. I work with children all day, I read romance novels to escape. I don’t wanna read about no damn babies.

I didn’t like the fact I had to wait a year to read this book. I know I could have paid 25 bucks for the hardcover, but my money tree Before I give my review I have to state for the record that I was already biased against this book.
I know I could have paid 25 bucks for the hardcover, but my money tree isn’t as fruitful as I’d like it to be, no matter how much I let my cat poop in it. I have a hard time justifying the 8 bucks I did pay for this. Unless it’s done well, and I have seen it done very well.
I don’t like romance novels told in the first person. I like to know what the hero is thinking. I do have to say, out of all the ‘Travis’ Novels, I liked this one best. Babies and first person aside. I liked that Ella was funny, and that Jack was manly enough without getting on my nerves. I do have to say, however, that I just finished the book 5 minutes ago, and I just had to look at the cover to remember their names. It’s late though, so I guess I can’t blame Kleypas for that. Some of her books will go down in the history of my favorite romances of all time.
Una calda estate in Texas
Yet, lately she hasn’t been doing it for me. The book started out great, I loved the characters, loved that I could feel every emotion. But something changed over halfway through the book. I can’t really put my finger on it why. I guess it was because at that point the book focused more on the hero’s posessiveness and the heroine’s whining over everything than on the actual story. When I first read this book, more then 3 years ago, I rated it 4 stars but I did not write a review so I don’t know what made me give such high rating.
I just finished listening to the audiobook version and it definitely wasn’t a 4 stars read this time. I was probably blinded with the sweetness overload caused by little Luke I can’t explain it otherwise. I have 2 main issue with this book: I know I was supposed to feel for her and empathize but I couldn’t connect with Ella’s character.
