Mine Till Midnight (Hathaway Series #1)

Mine Till Midnight - Lisa Kleypas My Rating: 3.5 I've always hated trying new authors that write historical romance novels for two reasons: 1)The writing is awkward and not engaging or 2) The romance isn't satisfying - there might just be tons of romance and nothing else or the other way around. When I first saw the high ratings of Lisa Kleypas' The Hathaways series, I was skeptical. Should I have give her books a chance? After reading Mine Till Midnight, my answer would be yes, although, like every other book, there are a couple of things I could have done without. Amelia, the heroine in Mine Till Midnight was such an easy character to relate to (possibly because I have a younger sister that constantly needs worrying after). Being the eldest, Amelia was constantly worrying about her family, which was sweet. I bet if I was in her situation, I would be a controlling, worried mess like her. And Cam, Cam, Cam. He was so sweet. I love how he knew Amelia wasn't as experienced, so he took his time with her. I love how he took most of the burden off her shoulders and showed her what true love and happiness is. I love how he snuck and stuck his ring on Amelia's finger after their first time together. He also managed to grab an unexpected chuckle out of me several times, a task that is no easy feat. I hated it when people were so discriminated against Cam just because he was a Gypsy. Why don't people get that they can't control the race in which they were born under? To make matters worse, Cam didn't act like the Gypsy stereotype; he was rich, well-respected, and three-fifths a gentlemen, so there's no reason why people should discriminate against him. When people just bash on him for being a Gypsy, I just wanted to reach into the book and shove their head against the wall. A bit violent, but that's the price of being so judging. I will definitely check out Lisa Kleypas' other historical romance novels, like now. (I already reserved six of them.) I can't wait to see what's in store for the Hathaways next. ohdamnbooks: mine till midnight
