I just think that the earlier books in the series are excellent books that should not be missed. Joe, while very masculine, is much more easy going and in touch with his feminine side than his brothers or brother-in-law. Brown-Eyed Girl is the highly anticipated fourth book in her Travises series. Wedding planner Avery Crosslin may be a rising star in Houston society, but she doesn’t believe in love-at least not for herself.

My only regret was not knowing how one situation affected Avery’s career in the end.

Were gifted with two love stories. Her jaundiced cynical views on love and handing out ill advice to her sister about love and marriage not being forever was just annoying and absurd.

As for her mother, she had a revolving door of marriages that left an even more permanent stain on her perception of romance. Avery is a no nonsense kind of person who is focused on work and getting things done. The eyes were heavy-lidded, the lips full and slightly parted. Given her background, there are reasons, I guess why she was sooo reluctant.

I abso-friggin-lutely loved and adored Joe! As a reader you never get the feeling that Lisa Kleypas’s heroes or any men are over-the-top or unbelievable. Yet she has never been tempted to embark on an affair, until now. Jul 15, Amanda rated it really liked it Shelves: It wasn’t just Gage, Liberty, Haven, Hardy, Jack, Emma, and Luke, but it eywd seeing their strong bonds with each other kleypax how their families had grown with time. There was some suspense in this story, but for the most part it is character driven.


Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite authors and it was wonderful catching up with the Travis kleypss again. He was a sexy bronw. Joe is actually a photographer, but not for weddings. I loved the tension between Sophia and Steven. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire.

But when Phoebe attends a family wedding, she encounters a dashing and impossibly charming stranger who sends a fire-and-ice jolt of attraction through her.

Apparently a boot keypas better than hairspray. Lisa Kleypas Fans, Romance. The woman in the photo was seductive, inviting, radiant.

I could understand if he was clear about why, or if he expressed some angst about it. I want to go to gorl bedroom, lock the door, throw the key away and stay between the sheets for a couple days and exchange bodily fluids until we are dehydrated.

Avery also meets Joe Travis, another member of a Texas royalty famil I received this gidl for free in exchange for an honest review.

The wedding planning aspects felt a little too detailed and are included too many times for my personal reading tastes. All I saw was a very capable young woman who underestimated what she had to share with someone else.

Someone to Watch over Me. What I do have a problem with is that if she wanted to be with him, that was her only choice. Ratings and Reviews 9 99 star ratings 9 reviews. An interesting cast of secondary characters I loved barbed and witty Steven and the added bonus of meeting the characters of the previous books again, gave this story a well-rounded and satisfying feel. He’s scrumptious and just screamed ‘write me a story’ right off the page. Avery is not someone who is looking for a romance.

I definitely saw it there.

I would have preferred if Joe was willing to support her and willing to work out a relationship long distance, even if Avery realized she didn’t want to go. I love LK, love her.

He is a perfect hero! I wonder why that sounded so…er…sexual? Sitting and chatting with Joe causes Avery to feel those sparks and when he asks her to dance She had a career, she was trying to rebuild her life from the shambles of her dysfunctional background and create happy for others with her wedding planning business. No way did I believe he loved her! The wait is over and Brown-Eyed Girl has arrived! I did like catching up with the Travises. And together, she and Joe made one mesmerizing couple.

More interesting that the main characters romance was Avery’s sister, Sofia and Stephen’s troublesome relationship. When the mission goes wrong, it will take all of Garrett’s skill and courage to save him.

BROWN-EYED GIRL by Lisa Kleypas | Kirkus Reviews

Recommended for lovers of contemporary romance with minimum angst, a lot of heart and with a hero that make you swoon over. She did it to please others. If it were me I would have been all over that like white on rice.
