Preview — Because You're Mine by Lisa Kleypas
Because You're Mine (Capitol Theatre #2)
Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom—which is why, to avoid a marriage to an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott. A torrid affair with the notorious womanizer would surely condemn her in the eyes of good society.
Though a legend in ...more

I was very surprise to see this book sitting on my TBR shelf and it being a Lisa Kleypas book to boot! The horror! But it was worth the wait as like all of Lisa Kleypas works, I was quickly drawn into the story. ...more
***Might be some general SPOILERS bellow.***
I wasn't disappointed in this story at all. It was entertaining and engaging. But the characters! They brought me no end of grief. I just couldn't empathize with either of them!
I kept judging them over and over.
Here's all the terrible things I thought of Madeline:
You might not think that the last one is an insult but in this case it is. Her ...more

This was such an incredible read!
Why the hell didn't I read this book /series before now?
(But, isn't it wonderful to find a series you've had on your TBR list for a long time, and then just start reading the first book only to discover that you've had a gem in your possession all along?)
Beautifully developed and engaging characters.
I loved how edgy and sinister Logan Scott could be in order to protect his heart, and Maddy was just a brilliant character to wa ...more
La prima parte è molto bella, con questa ragazza che si ribella a un matrimonio combinato e fugge nella Londra della perdizione per farsi rovinare la vita e conquistare la libertà. Ok, detto così il piano sembra piuttosto ingenuo, e in effetti naufraga miseramente.
Però Madeline si organizza comunque per ritagliarsi un posto a teatro.
La sua preda è Logan Scott, che in realtà è abituato a fare il lupo o il ...more
The second half is a whole different story. The "hero" Logan became such an ass that I could barely finish this book.
I know I'm alone on this according to the Goodreads ratings but I do not enjoy forcing sex on someone in the name of romance no matter what his true feelings are and even if her body betrays her and she enjoys it in the end. I found the whole thing t ...more
Esta segunda novela de la serie ha devuelto mis esperanzas y ha sido todo un placer leerla. Me ha fascinado Logan Scott, ese hombre en apariencia frío y distante que solo expresa sus emociones en el escenario. Un hombre que se ha hecho a sí mismo, con éxito y con un aura que atrae a todos hacia él y ...more

Did not really enjoy.
- too trusting
- self sacrificing (to her own detriment)
- too forgiving
- verbally abusive (literally threatens her physically and sexually)
Basically, Maddy does Logan The Big Hurt and he "can't get over it" even though the hurt honestly wasn't as terrible as he made it out to be. Then he exacts revenge by treating her like shit, saying terribly hurtful things to her, all the while fucking her and tre ...more
I loved this book so much! It was full of angst and love! Logan was such a tortured soul in need of love but just couldn't allow himself to love or be loved in return. Once he met Maddy, he was a goner but he fought against it. Poor guy, he was in desperate need of love and ughh! Yes, he was cruel to Maddy but she did break his trust and he had his own reasons for being the way he was.
Maddy, Maddy, Maddy.... I got so much second hand embarrassment from this one... She was such a na ...more
Second in the Capital Theatre series

Logan Scott isn’t like any man she’s eve met and from the start it’s obvious that her scheme of seduction won’t be as easy as she hoped it would be. Logan Scot...more
This is one of LK's older works and I think it shows, the writing is stiffer and the execution is not as smooth. Many of the circumstances seemed to happen too easily and unrealistically - one instance, namely, being Madeline's plot to run away from school and go to London. I felt that she found Logan too easily and accomplished everything too readily which is shocking considering she should, technically, be quite naive and innocent given her sheltered upbringing. I can't really fathom she'd ...more

Es hasta que se casan cuando todo cambia y se vuelve aburrido y ya no tiene mucho enganche. Me gustó más la primera vez que lo leí hace varios años.
One thing you can guarantee and rest assured in when reading in the Romance Fiction genre is that you're going to get a happy ending. Just like watching a movie with a superstar cast, you know the headlining actors, whatever the story's direction, won't be eliminated before the end. So is a similar knowledge for the Romance novel. There will be love, passion and a happy ending. Thankfully, as I've seen so far, Lisa Kleypas novels have a bonus, a good story.

I loved Logan. I ADORED Logan and Maddy together. They made a heavenly romantic couple. From the first book I knew Logan had to have his happiness. He needed love then and he needed love now. Maddy was a perfect cure for his aversion of love. Maddy was reall ...more
#BookLove2017: Logan Scott
Nunca he visto un personaje tan reacio a amar, como este. Después de haberle propuesto un matrimonio por conveniencia a Julia en el libro anterior, nada me sorprende de Logan para evitar los sentimientos. Claro, no me esperaba ese pasado en él, tampoco me esperaba su relación con el conde. Y ahí es donde entra ella y su plan de arruinarse a sí misma. Me da risa porque pese a todo, ella no es más que una niña en comparación a él.
Su primer y último amor ha sido el teat ...more
I think my favorite thing about this novel is how early on the couple commits to one another.
I love Logan. Love him. There's something very compelling about his strength. Especially once he falls in love with Maddy. All that protective masculinity focused in one place...hot.
Maddy was somewhat misguided in the beginning, but she was the perfect match for Logan. I loved how she made herself vulnerable to Logan ...more
Perhaps I've read almost all books from Lisa Kleypas and this book in comparison is not her best. But the fact that some scenes really made me touched was undeniable.
I liked the times when she had to choose between her direction and Logan's life. I loved the character of Mrs Florence but I have issues on Andrew's ...more
Other books in the series
“It used to be love.” He brushed his lips over her closed eyelids. “Now there's no word for it.”
“You once told me that you thought love was a weakness.”
“I was wrong,” he whispered, kissing the corners of her mouth. “I've discovered it's my only strength.”
