Tempt Me At Twilight by Lisa Kleypas

I haven't been hopping around blogland much but I don't recall seeing too many people talking about this book.

I'm loving it!!

I have the last few chapters to read but I can't see where it can go wrong. Unless the H/H die then I'm all good.

Harry is such a SOB and I love him! I think he's giving Sebastian a run for his money but then I never read the book where Sebastian was the villain.

I love it when you get characters that just don't fit any expectations.

Harry isn't a hero although I can't help but get all mushy about him now. I do think there is more that we could have known. He's not exactly forthcoming even in his own thoughts. He just knows what he wants and grabs it.

I would have liked to see him thinking about his hobby while working through something. I think there is a lot assumed about who he is (and I don't doubt he's every thing imparted) but it's not shown in his thoughts or actions for the most part. I think people who have active minds can't help but get distracted by seeing something new or interesting to them.

I guess it's just that Poppy is the new and shiny.

I can't wait to get to Beatrix's story although I imagine Leo will get his HEA before she does.

Okay, I didn't see the time creeping up on me and bedtime is calling!

But I can definitely call this one a KEEPER, KEEPER, KEEPER, KEEPER, KEEPER!!!

I just got this one. Not sure when I am going to be able to read it, but I definitely have high hopes for it.

Tempt me at Twilight was a keeper for me too. I was just wild about Harry :-)
I loved how he wanted Poppy and wouldn't let anything get in his way.

Reading that makes me want to catch up on that series now so I can read this book. I think I follow too many series...

Marg - I hope you enjoy it!

Kristie - I know! And he won't apologize which I love!

Lynn - you can never have too many series ;)

So happy you're enjoying it Cindy! :D We're buddy reviewing it soon over at Breezing Through :) So make sure to let us know if you agree or not :D

Harry, my kind of hero :)

I loved Harry! There's something to be said for a hero who is so very focused on his heroine. :)

I'm thinking Leo might give Sebastian a run for his money, too, when his book rolls around.

I remember when this first came out some people thought Harry was too much of an SOB... Me? I liked him.

I'm with Rosie - I liked Harry. I kept seeing not-so-great reviews for this book before I read it, but I don't really understand why. I really enjoyed it.
