**NOT RECOMMENDED** Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas

Then Came YouThen Came You by Lisa Kleypas

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Sensuality Rating: HOT 

Reckless and wild, beautiful Lily Lawson delights in shocking proper London society--and will break any rule to flaunt her independence. And now she is determined to rescue her helpless sister from an upcoming, undesired marriage to Lord Alex Raiford, the arrogant Earl of Wolverton. Through fair means and foul, the headstrong hellion succeeds outrageously-but her handsome adversary is not to be outdone. A master gamesman, Lord Alex counters Lily's scorn with kindness, and parries her blistering barbs with gentle words and a soft, sensuous touch. For he has resolved to make the spirited miss pay dearly for her interference-with her body, her soul...and her stubborn, unyielding heart.

This book was my first Kleypas and I'm afraid to say that if all her books follow this writing pattern I won't be reading this author. The book was sweet enough substance about a girl that made bad decisions that followed her into adulthood. The relationship between Alex and Lilly could even be believed in a far fetched way but all the "love making"(if you could call them that) I found to be uncomfortable and extreme in amount and that was with skipping the scenes as best I could. I would not say that this book was erotic but Kleypas did write out specific acts and body parts and the total lack of sexual tension was the biggest downfall.
