Tempt Me at Twilight by Lisa Kleypas
“In the fairy tale you mentioned last night, I would probably be the villain. But it’s possible the villain would treat you far better than the prince would have.”
Not bad…. but also not amazing. I’ve been on a Lisa Kleypas binge and I’m on the Hathaway’s series. I actually am liking it more than the Wallflowers (please don’t throw the tomatoes!) but this one wasn’t as good as the others. I’m not saying it was bad either, but it fits perfectly into a 3.5 rating where I did enjoy the book, but it’s nothing special to me.
The premise is amazing, a secretive rich hotel owner falls in love with Poppy Hathaway and will literally do anything to have her. Tricked into a marriage she didn’t expect, Poppy tries to make the best of her situation, but may be dealing with a man she doesn’t understand.
I thought this was a sweet story, but it really could have been developed a lot better than it was. It went from distrust to love way too quickly to me. I felt we could have gotten more on Harry’s background to understand how he was. But it felt like one sob story and one confession and suddenly everything was resolved.
I am very much looking forward to the next book because it’s Leo and Miss Marks, hopefully it lives up to my expectations.
“I want you any way I can get you. Not because you’re beautiful or clever or kind or adorable, although devil knows you’re all those things. I want you because there’s no one else like you, and I don’t ever want to start a day without seeing you.”
