    2. Okay. How to write this review without the whole thing turning into a Hardy Cates droolfest. It's going to be very hard, because I love the man!One Upon a Time, There was a Guy Named Hardy Cates:I met Hardy Cates in Sugar Daddy, and I have to say that I sure did fall hard for him. Big time! Hard as a young Liberty Jones did. I could see that beneath that mind-numbingly sexy bad boy veneer was a sensitive, loving, good-hearted person. My feelings never changed for him. (view spoiler)[ As much as [...]

    3. "Haven, you know I'm right. Let's talk about this.""If you don't want to have sex, I don't want to talk about our feelings."He scrubbed his hand through his hair, looking confused. "Well, that's for damn sure the first time a woman's ever said that to me.""I don't take rejection well," I muttered."It's not rejection, it's a postponement. And if Jack Daniel's makes you this ornery, I'm never pouring you another shot.""It has nothing to do with the whiskey. I'm this ornery all on my own.""Hardy," [...]

    4. I've been in a massive book hangover this week and I couldn't read anything new. Fortunately, this book got me out of my slump. Hardy CatesHe's everything that a bad boy hero should be. He's gorgeous, rich, charming with enough vulnerability to make you fall in love with his character. He's strong and heroic and there's no doubt to his love and devotion for Haven. Haven TravisDespite growing up rich and privileged, Haven's life is far from perfect. She made a really bad decision of marrying Nick [...]

    5. This is only my second book by Lisa Kleypas but I am here to say that I am really enjoying her books and I’ll be reading many more. I’m finding her writing to be so genuine. I don’t always end up loving stories that are told in the first person’s point of view but LK gives such a strong delivery and her stories are enticing and engaging. Blue-Eyed Devil was a bit of a surprise to me. I was preparing myself for all things Hardy Cates and yes I got that, but it was as much a story about Ha [...]

    6. Posted atUnder the CoversHer name is Haven. But it’s her last name that gets her noticed. Being the only girl in a family of men can be tough sometimes. With three overprotective brothers plus a meddling father, Haven has a difficult time finding a guy who can stand up to her family name, let alone her family. Haven falls in love quickly with a man who she thinks she knows. But, in the end, being married to Nick isn’t what she thought it would be.Blue-Eyed Devilmade me bawl like a baby. I’ [...]

    7. 5+ stars – Contemporary RomanceI wanted to read “Blue-Eyed Devil” because Hardy Cates seemed like such a sexy and magnetic bad-boy character. I mainly read “Sugar Daddy” in order to have the necessary background on him to read this, so color me surprised that I wound up not liking this as much as “Sugar Daddy”. Don’t get me wrong, Hardy Cates is everything I thought he would be and then some, but to me, this book is seriously inhibited by not having his point of view. It’s told [...]

    8. •● I'm on the fence with this one, and I don't know what to do with my rating. I'm leaving at 2, because while the first part did a very good job at portraying home life abuse, I wanted to slap the men more often than not and the romance didn't work for me. That's going to be long, and it might involve a lot of cursing. Sorry about that.●•This book starts like a cheesy tale - Haven Travis, spoiled daughter of a Texan millionaire, marries the guy she loves more than anything, against the [...]

    9. Blue-Eyed Devil would have earned a solid 5-star rating from me if it had been written from Hardy Cate's point of view. Don't get me wrong - I liked Haven Travis. I sympathized with her during the abuse scenes with her narcissistic, whack-job of a husband. But Haven was not the sort of person I could see myself becoming friends with. In spite of all the horrible things that happened to her and the way she started to turn her life around, her character still smacked of the poor little rich girl c [...]

    10. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.5 Stars!I have been in love with Hardy Cates since I first met him way back in 2007 when I first read Sugar Daddy. The teenage girl that now occupies this old ladies body still swoons a little bit every time I even think about Hardy Cates as a teenager. Where were the boys like Hardy back when I actually was a teenager? Even when Hardy does something a little wrong, I can forgive him. When this book came out in 2008, I drove to my local Borde [...]

    11. ¡Me encantó la historia de Haven y Hardy! ❤️Los primeros capítulos son durísimos, pero me pareció impecable la manera en que la autora abordó la situación de Haven, con mucha altura y sensibilidad. Adoré a esta pareja, y a toda la familia Travis. ❤️

    12. This won't be much of a review because I'm dying to get back to Smooth Talking Stranger (which I already started). Just some of my thoughtsHardyHardyHardy! God, how I adored this character (and his 'mink' hair--I think LK went a little overboard on that description)! I love all the good, and the wee bit of bad, in Hardy. I love his charming side, his teasing side, his sexy side, his compassionate side, and his roguish side. What a perceptive, lovable, blue-eyed scamp! I was a bit worried about h [...]

    13. Sometimes you come across a book that leaves you speechless. It leaves you empty upon finishing it because it was such a pleasure reading itIS WAS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS!Blue-Eyed Devil was my first LK novel and it left me wondering, agonizing, why it took me so damn long to read her work. She is a brilliant writer. BRILLIANT.She tells a story so evocatively, so intelligently it makes you wonder about other books you've read. I was amazed by LK's ability to use such descriptive language and witty di [...]

    14. *Unpopular Opinion Time*I find it hard to believe this was written by the same author, guys. Kleypas is a goddess, she knows how to write sexy times scenes and how to make you fall in love with her characters. Why one of those things was missing, escapes me completely.While Sugar Daddy was tragic and emotional, Blue-Eyed Devil is too predictable and beyond belief at the same time. It suffered from Tell, Don't Show syndrome. We read a lot about how amazing Hardy and Haven are together, but we don [...]

    15. Blue Eyed Devil was an awesome follow up to Sugar Daddy. I was disappointed that Hardy didn’t end up with Liberty in that one, especially after all of the background we get on him. Then he just leaves town, and comes back to pull a total a-hole move in order to get Liberty back. In BED, we get to know Haven, the youngest daughter of the Sugar Daddy, Churchill. She first meets Hardy at Liberty and Gage’s wedding and they have the classic moment. “Their eyes meet across a crowded room…usin [...]

    16. Wow! Can I officially say that “Blue-Eyed Devil” by Lisa Kleypas has now become one of my top contemporary romance novels of all time next to “Kiss An Angel?” “Blue-Eyed Devil” is the second book in Lisa Kleypas popular “Travises” series and this time, it stars the sister in the family, Haven Travis and the former bad-boy, Hardy Cates! “Blue-Eyed Devil” is a truly mesmerizing book that has drama, secrets and forbidden love rolled into one novel!Haven Travis is the only sister [...]

    17. ♦ ALL I WANT IS YOU ♦ JUST ONE LITTLE TRAVIS ♦Blue Eyed Devil starts off with Liberty and Gage’s (Sugar Daddy) wedding.Hardy party crashes the wedding where he and Haven notice each other and their attraction is undeniable. This is Haven and Hardy's love story. It wasn't an easy relationship because Haven makes a mistake by marrying Nick. Nick's true colors show once he is married. He inflicts spousal abuse upon Haven. After one horrible event Haven escapes back to her family. In the beg [...]

    18. Well, you guys, I mother-f-ing hated this book. I'm about to unleash spoilery spoilers, but I will start with a few status updates to illustrate:Oh the mansplaining.-First the overprotective, boundary-less brothers & father. Because they are Texas Men. No. (Although one it's well-established why). I don't know, trust your sister and empower her maybe after her life events (Adding: (view spoiler)[ Haven is the victim of an abusive marriage. And it's brutal. LK deserves credit for her vomit-in [...]

    19. The second time reading this story I enjoyed it even more. Somehow I noticed more details about the two protagonists, Hardy and Haven, that I missed the first time. This story is about two people who don't know their designated place in life, so they drift wherever the wind takes them, persuing random avenues and finally finding their place in it's other's arms.Hardy Cates is for me (and I guess for whichever read Sugar Daddy) a repressed desire. He may acted like an asshole in the end of that b [...]

    20. What can I say? I've been sucked in, into the wonderful world of the pure bliss that LK has created. Alpha males that are just too good to be true and wonderful heroines. This is my favorite, so far. Hardy you are a gem and you have found a beautiful heroine in Haven, who is such a sweetheart. A special thanks to Karla, for providing this wonderful image of Hardy, that is just sublime. Thank you my friend, it really enhanced my reading experience. *waggles eyebrows*Hardy CatesThanks again Karla, [...]

    21. Rather than berate myself for taking so long to read this, I'm glad to have finally succumbed to the awesomeness that is Lisa Kleypas.

    22. Loved it! The story just grabbed me from the beginning and kept me entertained the entire time. Hardy Cates is such a hot, sexy hero! Haven was a bit harder for me to identify with than Liberty was but I still liked her. Her horrible relationship with her ex-husband was hard to see but at least she was able to get out with the help of Her brother Gage who was wonderful in this book too. I enjoyed seeing more of Liberty, Gage and Carrington.Hardy was a wonderful hero, he was very patient and kind [...]

    23. 4.5 starsSugar Daddy the first book in the Travis series is great and 4 stars for me. But Blue-Eyed Devil book #2 is brilliant. The first-person narrative from heroine Haven's point-of-view works well here, as it did in Sugar Daddy from Liberty's pov. Although I loved this story a little more, it's still a toss-up as to my favourite hero - Gage or Hardy - and my favourite heroine - Liberty or Haven.One thing that Lisa Kleypas manages better than almost any other author, is an authentic, complete [...]

    24. “Who are you?""For you, honey . . . I'm trouble." Haven Travis comes from money, but she refuses to let it dictate her life. She’s never been the daughter her parents wanted, no matter how hard she tried to be, so she stopped trying. And when her family disapproves of the man she loves, she marries him despite her father’s ultimatum. Unfortunately her family was right, and the man she married was not who she thought he was. And now it’s two years later, and Haven has finally escaped and [...]

    25. As far as Lisa Kleypas's contemporary romance series goes, Blue-Eyed Devil was much better than Sugar Daddy. You can tell with this book that LK was starting to get used to writing contemporary romance, as opposed to historical romance; BED was less a coming of age story and more a centered on the romance. I still can't definitively come to terms with the fact that the book is in first person as I wish that I could have seen some of the story from Hardy's point of view (perhaps his encounter wit [...]

    26. Four and a half but rounded up for making me cry. This definitely has a better, more organic through line and ending than Sugar Daddy. It didn't start out as wonderfully (I really loved Liberty's coming-of-age in SD), but the story was engaging throughout. I loved Hardy and Haven as a couple. I thought their chemistry was great. I was plagued slightly with doubts by the way SD made Hardy so smarmy at the end, but he redeems himself well here. I wasn't sure I was going to like Haven as a romantic [...]

    27. ALL-TIME FAVORITE!!! Prepare yourself for one of the best books you will *ever* read. This story has the most memorable opening scenes. There are so many facets to this treasure of a novel. You really feel the heroine's struggle with abuse & trust. This book made my heart race, made me cry and definitely made me smile. This is hands down one of my all time faves. " The truth is, I've wanted you ever since I met you in that damned wine cellar. Because I got a bigger charge out of that five mi [...]

    28. If you must know, there were quite a few people that I wanted to strangle while reading this book. Two of these people were Nick, Haven's ex husband, and Vanessa, Haven's boss. God, these two people made me so mad because they kept on abusing Haven in every single way. But nonetheless, they both got the ending that they deserved and I am happy for that! It definitely took me awhile to finally read Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas, and I'm really glad that I did. Even if I did read the series out [...]

    29. Rereading series in audiobook in anticipation of reading Joe's book Brown-Eyed Girl (finally Joe get's his book)!!!!! Meanwhile, I get to experience yummy Hardy all over again.Originally read: June 2011

    30. Originally reviewed here @ AngievilleSometimes you come full circle with a certain author. My very first Lisa Kleypas novel was actually Sugar Daddy, the first book in the Travis Family trilogy. And I enjoyed it for the most part. But I started to grow fatigued near the end with all of the Texas good ole boy charm, enough that I figured I'd part ways with Kleypas at that point and call it good. Then, awhile later, I won a copy of the introductory novella to her magical realism Friday Harbor seri [...]
