I read Blue-Eyed Devil so long ago I forgot about the last Travis brother, Joe.  How could I have done that?  I love the Travis family and all the drama that comes with the famous Travis name.

Avery Crosslin became a Wedding Planner in recent years and she is an up and coming star in Housten Society. Celebrities and rich families alike are hearing wonderful things about Avery and her amazing planning skills.

Avery could not be more thrilled for all the publicity that her business was attaining. Everything sounds magical until you factor in, Avery does not believe in love.

Shocking, I know. How can someone who comes up with beautiful ideas for people's wedding not believe in the magic of love is confusing, I know. But as you get to know her, you will understand and totally love Avery.

It was at one of these weddings that Avery ran into Joe Travis.  She accidentally mistook him as one of the wedding photographers that she hired.

She realized her mistake soon enough and even though Joe pulled out his Travis charm, Avery was just not falling for it.  Unfortunately, Joe is not one to back down and he takes her on a ride that Avery could not resist.

Telling herself that it was only one night, Avery indulged and tried to walk away but Joe was not having it.  The Travis's men know how to go after what they want and Joe wants Avery.

Unfortunately for him, Avery is also determined to have nothing to do with him, since in her mind, a man like him spells nothing but trouble for her and Avery cannot afford the distraction. Especially since she got the job to plan the wedding of the year- which so happen to be a make-or-break event.

A big job like this comes with its own complications, but the complications that came with this wedding was putting Avery in a moral dilemma.  Adding her own complications on top of that when Joe made it abundantly clear that he was not giving up on her.  This forces Avery into looking at the origin of  her insecurities and her beliefs, which is a scary thing to do.

Will Avery find a way to overcome her insecurities?  Would Joe find a way to break down all of Avery's defense walls?  What is so bad about the wedding that Avery was conflicted about what to do?  Find out in the fourth installment in the Travis Family Series, Brown Eyed Girl.

+Lisa Kleypas is such an amazing author.  She is one of my go-to author that I can pick any of her books off the shelf, without reading the description on the back, and know that I in for one emotional roller coaster ride.

This is the first book in a long while where I did not feel irritated with any of the characters.  I completely understood why Avery acted the way she did and it made me love her more.  I admired her for not being affected by Joe's sweet charm and fortune, but by the person he is.

Yes, there was an instant attraction, but it was refreshing to see that Joe and Avery did not immediately jump each other's bones.  (Even though Joe really wanted too).  Joe had to work for it, and boy did he work for it.

I love all the Travis's men, and sister.  The stories on how they all found love was just so beautiful to read about.  My favorite book in the entire series is Smooth Talking Stranger.  I can't help it, I love books with children and animals in it.

This book was inspiring, lovely, beautiful and amazing to read.  I just could not put the book down until I had too.  This was a sad event since this meant that the end of the book was here.  For once in what feels as forever, the ending did not give me diabetes with its sweetness.

Thank you +Lisa Kleypas for this amazing read and I can't wait to read one of your amazing works of art again.
