Married by Morning (Hathaway Series #5)

Married By Morning - Lisa Kleypas Kleypas is always a favorite and I was especially looking forward to this book. The tension between Cat and Leo has been building for 3 books now, and I was very interested in seeing where she was going to take them.Cat has a secret and Leo wants to know what it is. He wants to know all of her secrets, especially the ones hidden under her clothes. But he knows it's a bad idea. Cat is scared to death of Leo finding out her secrets, because she knows once they've been revealed she'll have to leave..and she isn't ready to give up the Hathaways just yet. But they both surprise each other. Cat isn't the uptight spinster she pretends to be, and Leo isn't as callous and shallow as Cat has always thought him. Although this wasn't my favorite Kleypas, I did enjoy it quite a bit. The end bothered me, mostly because I felt like it was thrown in almost as an after-thought, just to add conflict. Plus, the conflict so paralleled that of Tempt Me at Twilight it was like I experienced deja vu. That aside the book was very well done. I loved the banter between Marks and Leo and how they constantly surprised each other. I also liked that Kleypas included the other Hathaways in a believable, yet unobtrusive way. They didn't take over the story, but enhanced it with their natural flair.
