Blue Eyed Devil 3. Sugar Daddy 2. Logan wasn't just a "tortured hero" in romance for me. I LOVE the tortured hero. But in the long run, I found Logan's basically "clinical" self-protectiveness to the extreme. What does that mean for me as a reader? It means he rejected our poor undeserving heroine stringently and often Talk about the punishment not fitting the crime! As for our heroine, she was beginning to turn into one of my least favorite Julia Quinn heroines from "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever," referred to me and a few others as "Miss Amazing Doormat"!
Maddy could definitely fit that mould right up to around What the?!? This imbalance on his judgments made absolutely no sense to me in the context of the book.
In the end, although I felt sorry for Logan and knew he'd had a rough life I felt it was time for him to be the grown man he was and put it in perspective instead of constantly taking it out on Madeline! I know this is the 2nd book in series. I didn't read the first book in the series and even though the characters from the first book were a part of Because You're Mine this book can be a stand-a-lone.
She would do anything to avoid marrying him. Maddy devices a plan to seduce the famous actor and owner of the Capital Theatre, Logan Scott. Logan Scot. It seems that every time I pick up one of her books, it makes me wish I lived in the Regency era that her characters are portrayed in. I stole this book from my mom one morning waiting while eating breakfast because I was in the mood for a historical romance novel and I fell hard for this masterpiece and its characters.
The main female character is Madeline, but we know her as Maddy for most of the book. The main male character is Logan. Instead of being a tortured war hero he was an actor.
This book was definitely different from what even I usually read in historical romance. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions.

Seriously, all of you out there, LK fans, what's wrong with you? Knowing I'm such a freak when it comes to LK.
I had postponed this series because it was supposed to be not as good as the rest but IMHO it was one of the bests and I definitely expect more books in it in the future.
I really enjoyed the first installment in the series, the introduction to this world which goes around the theater life was exquisite and most interesting. It was OMG! It was refreshing to read about more normal and common people and not always have nobles as heroes and heroines. But this book, OMG, I have no words for it. It definitely became a fav from this author. I couldn't put it down and the whole time I felt I had a fist around my heart squeezing it harder and harder with every page.
What an emotional roller coaster. I just can't understand how so many gave a lower rating to this book than to most LK books. I just adored it. Straight to my favs shelf. View all 54 comments. Oct 03, K. Okay, I know I gave this book 3 stars, but that's only because LK kept "playing" with MY emotions by adeptly keeping my hopes up: About 20 times she had me wanting to throw something at the I'm SOOO glad you've ditched this kind of back-and-forth angst beyond reason over the years.
This book definitely staked your writing talents and ability to manipulate a readers emotions, but I'd just as soon not be subjected to this "type" of "romance" manipulation again. Her parents have betrothed her to a man of the peerage in his 50's who, shall we say, is neither dashing nor well-preserved for his age. In fact, he's a loathsome, arrogant toad of a man!
Could it be any worse for her?! She skips out on her over-extended stay at school due to her parents not allowing her to have an "actual" season - husband in place and all to carry out her plan.
She of course never expects to fall in love along the way Logan has had a rough life, to say the least. He was brought up in an abusive home where he was targeted in particular, while his siblings escaped the wrath of their father and complete neglect of their mother. His father being the steward of a wealthy lord -- he was raised alongside the lord's heir as his playmate and best friend on their estate.
As Logan grew up and withdrew from that life, managing against all odds to acquire fame and considerable fortune, he was ever supportive of his friend Andrew who, although privileged, fell into a pattern of considerable debauchery and ruin. Logan never abandoned him despite all the disloyalties Andrew subjected him to, bailing him out both literally and figuratively at every turn. When Logan crosses paths with Madeline "Maddy" as she takes a job incognito at his successful theatre, he's attracted but completely repels her advances as he does pretty much all women.
Needless to say, she grows on him and he eventually comes to trust her. I don't think it's a spoiler to say that she obviously eventually is found out as to her plan of seduction, and Logan finds it yet another deceit in his life he can't bear.
He instantly goes into rejection mode with Maddy and puts up all his barriers despite his growing feelings for her. Logan wasn't just a "tortured hero" in romance for me. I LOVE the tortured hero. But in the long run, I found Logan's basically "clinical" self-protectiveness to the extreme. What does that mean for me as a reader? It means he rejected our poor undeserving heroine stringently and often Talk about the punishment not fitting the crime!
As for our heroine, she was beginning to turn into one of my least favorite Julia Quinn heroines from "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever," referred to me and a few others as "Miss Amazing Doormat"! Maddy could definitely fit that mould right up to around What the?!? This imbalance on his judgments made absolutely no sense to me in the context of the book. In the end, although I felt sorry for Logan and knew he'd had a rough life I felt it was time for him to be the grown man he was and put it in perspective instead of constantly taking it out on Madeline!
Not really hero material. In summary, the book was a weird dichotomy of both liking it for LK's on-going ability to evoke my emotions on cue, but in the end I felt over-manipulated and less than satisfied. By the time the hero came around and Madeline grew a back-bone I knew it just wasn't a favorite romance no matter how talented LK can write it. Bottom line: I suppose if your "cuppa" is the tortured beyond reason hero who lashes out at the "ONE" i. For me View all 14 comments. Jul 22, Rane rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. Second of the Capital Theater series, Because You're Mine picks up with Logan Scott and Lady Madeline Matthews, Madeline the youngest of Matthews family, forced to marry a man older then her own father, decides to find a way out of the engagement.
When she comes across a picture of Logan Scott, she comes up with a plan to have him ruin her! As she slowly learns about cold Theater owner, she starts to fall in love with him putting herself at risk of having her plan found out but having her heart broken.
Logan is shocked how drawn he is to Maddy, and does everything to find a way to get her to leave. Logan is a cool operator , but very passionate about his acting and later Maddy. While in second half of the book Logan made me mad, I sill liked him in the end.
Maddy acts very immature at the start, she becomes a mature woman whom puts up with a lot of crap from not only her family, but later from Logan. Instead of crying over it, she takes it on the chin and keeps her head up and her faith that things will turn out okay. With a few great surprises and characters that drawn you in and keeps you reading. Thankfully, Maddy has enough and Logan opens his eyes with a little help from everyone! View all 33 comments. How terrible of me. Giving two stars to Lisa Kleypas.
I'm awful. 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: Naive Indecisive Stupid Pushover Self sacrificing You might not think that the last one is an insult but in this case it is.
Her How terrible of me. Her "patience" with him got on my nerves like crazy!
She let Logan be a complete ass to her! And Logan. Can some fictional character show up and strangle him to death for me, please! At first I was understanding. I was.
