    4.0 von 5 Sternen seichte Lektüre für den Arbeitsweg 7. August 2012
    Von JoeyE
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    Gut zu lesen und auch wenn man Englisch nur als Fremdsprache gelernt hat leicht zu verstehen. Als Lektüre für den Arbeitsweg ist dieses Buch optimal geeignet.

    Der Gehalt ist natürlich gering aber für einen Liebesroman sehr angenehm.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht so gut wie seine Vorgänger. 25. Januar 2012
    Von Magritte
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Seit ich Lisa Kleypas entdeckt habe verschlinge ich Ihre Bücher der Reihe nach.

    Eigentlich schreibt Sie eher historische Liebesromane, mit einem meist interessanten sozialen oder geschichtlichen Hintergrund.
    Nachdem Ich Ihren 8ten Roman in Folge gelesen habe, hatte ich aber Lust auf etwas anderes und habe diese Reihe begonnen.

    Die Travis Reihe
    1. Sugar Daddy (2007)Sugar Daddy
    2. Blue Eyed Devil (2008)Blue-Eyed Devil
    3. Smooth Talking Stranger (2009)Smooth Talking Stranger

    Als Ella Varner einen Anruf Ihrer Mutter bekommt das Ihre Schwester Tara Ihr Baby bei Ihr gelassen hat und Ella es sofort abholen kommen soll, nimmt sie sich liebevoll dem kleinen Luke an. Ihr Freund Dane will mit dem kleinen aber nichts zu tun haben und sie soll sich allein in einer anderen Stadt darum kümmern. Ella versucht den Vater des Babys herausfindet zu machen und geht zuerst zum Multimillionär Jack Travis. Dieser Schürzenjäger ist sofort von Ella fasziniert und hilft wo er nur kann. Es entwickelt sich eine schöne aber nicht allzu glaubwürdige Liebesgeschichte.

    Der Roman ist gut geschrieben aber mir scheint das alles viel zu schnell und einfach zu gehen, besonders im vergleich zu den beiden vorigen Romanen welche doch sehr tiefgründig waren. Es ist nett die Charaktere der vorherigen Bücher wieder zu treffen.
    Auch hat Mrs Kleypas das Buch über den letzten der Travis Geschwister nicht geschrieben. irgendwie hat man den Eindruck sie hätte die Lust an der Familie verloren.

    Viel Spaß auch Euch beim Lesen MBTM

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Smooth talking writer! 31. März 2009
    Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
    Ella Varner is a columnist living and working in Austin, Texas. She loves her life with her boyfriend Dane and is content in their relationship. Everything changes dramatically however when Ella's younger sister, Tara, has a baby, Luke, and Ella is forced to take care of him. Suddenly, Ella's neat and orderly life is interrupted with bottles, nightly feedings, little sleep, and a small but growing baby.

    Ella is determined to do her best by Luke and Tara and she decides the best choice is to find the father. When Tara names wealthy playboy Jack Travis as the father, Ella marches down to his Houston office to get answers. Jack denies that he is Luke's father straight away, but Ella wants a paternity test. Jack agrees knowing he is not the father. But he sure would not mind spending more time with the feisty Ella. Jack is used to arm candy in the women he dates. Ella is anything but that. She is intelligent, strong-minded, and determined to never truly lose herself to a man. Let the battle of wills commence!

    Smooth Talking Stranger is not as intense as the previous Travis story, Blue-Eyed Devil. There is more laughter and a lightness that Haven's story lacked, which makes sense given the very different plots of the story. While I definitely enjoyed Smooth Talking Stranger, it did not pull me in quite as much as Haven and Hardy's story. This is a romance that skims along the surface rather than delves deep into the characters' hearts and souls. This is not a bad thing but it is just a major difference. Jack and Ella's story is very enjoyable, and perhaps the most romantic out of all of Lisa Kleypas's contemporary romances but it just did not totally grab me.

    That being said, it is still a Kleypas story and considering some of the romance drivel that is published, this book stands heads and tails above others. Ella is an interesting woman to get to know. She feels the pull of love, not only for Jack, but for Luke, but she wants to heartily deny it. She plays her emotions close to the vest while Jack is very free with his feelings, letting her know just how much he has started to love her. Jack is definitely the charmer and rascal he was in previous books as a secondary character, but there is a more serious side that is a welcome addition to his character. He is not perfect and as some of his previous relationships come back to haunt him, he gets a better understanding for just why Ella is so much more right for him.

    Smooth Talking Stranger has its swoon-worthy moments and it showcases Lisa Kleypas's fun and unique writing style. I liked the characters and particularly the ending which just seemed very appropriate and wonderful for the overall tone of the book. Love comes in many forms as Ella is about to discover.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Book! 4. April 2009
    Von weathered1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
    This was by far my favorite of Lisa Kleypas' contemporary novels, which is saying a lot, because I've really enjoyed the others. I did not expect to love this book as much as I did, but Ella and Jack are such well-drawn characters - the reader gets a very real sense of who they are as people, and what has led to them being who they are. Both are flawed, but in a way that makes them all the more real, and they don't judge each other, but demonstrate a very real, very deep, mutual sense of understanding and acceptance.

    Plus, their banter is fantastic! They're both incredibly bright and funny, and a lot of their conversations and back-and-forth snark are a lot of fun to read. That said, Kleypas doesn't skimp on meaningful conversations, either; Ella and Jack have many serious, meaningful talks that give us real insight into their ever-growing and intensifying feelings for one another.

    The actual progression of their relationship is very well done. It does not move at a snail's pace, but it doesn't happen overnight, either. The reader is treated to seeing how their initial attraction to, and wariness of, one other develops into real friendship and trust, heat and passion, a breaking down of old walls and defenses, and a truly beautiful, strong love. Kleypas does all of this while managing to avoid a cliche or two that are repeated ad nauseum in books that feature alpha male playboys, and does so in such a way as to turn those cliches to her advantage, and strengthen the bond between the characters.

    Then, too, there is involvement by other members of the Travis family (particularly Haven), and their significant others/spouses. It was a great to read about how their lives have grown and changed, and Kleypas integrated them very well into Jack and Ella's story.

    This book was very good - in fact, it's one of the best romances that I've ever read. I *highly* recommend this book to all of those who are looking for a novel featuring real, deep love and romance; fun and playfulness; intense passion and need; some heart-string tugging events; and even some suspense. Kleypas truly outdid herself with this book!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Ten reasons you will love Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas 12. März 2012
    Von Mina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    When writing the review of a LK's book, the risk is to sound redundant because she consistently delivers with her signature style and she is always at her best whatever she writes, either historical or contemporary.
    So, let me give it to you straight and simple...there are at least ten good reasons to love Smooth Talking Stranger.
    1) The first person POV: Ms. Kleypas treats us to a smooth and flawless first person narrative style...what a pleasant surprise!
    2) The LK trademark descriptive style: Ms. Kleypas's highly descriptive prose delivers dramatic and effective characterization of protagonists and their (Texan) environment. STS, like many other LK novels, has a strong "film" quality. It would work beautifully on screen!
    3) The richly nuanced characters: whether main or secondary, they are all striking and tridimensional, believable and endearing. Our heroine Ella Varner, in particular, with her tragic family background, her narcissistic mother and sister, her bookish personality, her fears and inhibitions.
    4) The "on the mark" description of family dynamics, either normal or dysfunctional. You can't but relate to this fictional microcosm.
    5) The heart-wrenching storyline...I have to admit I got misty-eyed when the protagonist, Ella, heartbreakingly returns her baby nephew to the care of his mom. When a story is so well written, the suspension of disbelief kicks in...and you find yourself shedding tears, laughing and pining for these fictional characters and their fortunes/misfortunes.
    6) The love story, as much more emotionally charged as stronger is the reluctance of one of the protagonists to be sentimentally involved...because love means facing your biggest fears.
    7) Tasteful and sophisticated sensuality, building up through the pages and enhanced by a strong romantic tension.
    8) A great stand-alone novel, although embedded in a trilogy. And brace yourself, because a further installment of the Travises Series is in the works!
    9) Male characters to die for...if you don't fall in love with Jack Travis within the first one hundred pages, something is seriously wrong with you. Distractingly handsome and downright sweet...enough said.
    10) Heartwarming fairytale quality: yes, you could certainly put this one on your "modern fairytales bookshelf" and keep it, because it will give you sheer joy reading it over and over again. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen I want more! 8. März 2010
    Von Kathy L. Bender - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    I've read all three of Lisa Kleypas' contemporaries and I want more! Each one of these books were page turners. In fact, I left "Blue Eyed Devil" at a house I was visiting in another state. I was about half way through and had to go out and purchase a new one because I couldn't wait to finish the book. "Smooth Talking Stranger" was even better than the first two. I love the premise where the rich guy doesn't buy into the beautiful women who want nothing more from a man than sex and a thick wallet. Jack is probably too macho, but he makes up for it with his sincerity, his deep love and his ability to express that love in the most romantic ways. What a great proposal! I loved it and I didn't want to finish the book because I didn't want it to end. I've read the last three chapters five times since I finished the book a few days ago.

    I hope Lisa Kleypas continues to write about the Travises. Is Joe next?
