Because You’re Mine

Because You're MineLady Madeline Matthews hatched a plan to get herself out of a marriage to a man who was older than her father. She was set out to ruin herself and knew the perfect man to do the job, Logan Scott.

Logan Scott did not trifle with young unmarried woman. He did not trust woman but there was something about Madeline that made him want to forget his rules.

Because You’re Mine is the second book to Capitol Theatre series by Lisa Kleypas. I really liked this book. Kleypas keeps you entertained with the couple eventually finding love and the little banter back and fourth. I liked that I got to read more with the actors that worked at the Capitol Theatre.

Kleypas writes the character of Madeline to be very entertaining. She is young and naive but she was also a very strong willed girl. Although when facing off with Logan she will find her courage and ache of love die as he does not reciprocate. Kleypas writes Logan sometimes to be a villain in a way. Though the reason for Logan’s anger is because he was betrayed by a woman, as I thought from the previous book, but there was more that was hidden about his life. Logan will be betrayed again and he will have to learn to forgive or ask for support. That support comes from Madeline even though he does not want it, he does but he wouldn’t admit it.

It’s hard to have the hero act like a villain sometimes because that will interfere with the happy ending. Although if there are not problems then the book can get very boring. For me Kleypas does not have that problem as all her heroes or heroines are flawed in someway but will always redeem themselves in the end. The romance reader in me cheers for those moments.

I am off to read another series from Lisa Kleyas which is Wallflowers.

Somewhere I’ll Find You

Somewhere I'll Find YouJulia Wentworth and Damon Savage had one thing in common, they were married to each other and had no desire to be. Their parents had married them off when they were children and as adults neither were wanting to be saddled with a spouse. Circumstances will have Julia and Damon finding each other and will be more shocked when they have feelings for each other. Though each are hesitant where that will lead them.

Somewhere I’ll Find You is the first book to the series Capitol Theatre. I found this book to be very entertaining. I was wondering in the beginning if I would like it. There are sometimes when you love the authors writing but on that particular book it just didn’t give you what you wanted. I thought that was going to be the case with the beginning but then you continue and it became engaging and I wanted to know more.

Julia and Damon were given a disservice with being forced to marry without having their knowledge when they were children. It made them become guarded and hesitant to trust. Neither will want each other in their lives until they meet each other and then they feel the desire. You felt for Julia who did want to be loved by Damon but feared that he would take away the one thing that she treasured. Damon was a bit of a player but you really couldn’t fault him too much. He was likeable but he should’ve made more of an attempt to find Julia, Julia should’ve done the same.

Needless to say there will be that happy ending that you long for, it will just take a lot of time persuading and some mending of hearts. I was interested in Logan Scott and what he was running from. I figured it was a woman who had broken his heart but it seemed even more. The answers will be given in the second/last book of the series which I will be reading next.
