Worth Any Price (Bow Street Runners Series #3)

Worth Any Price - Lisa Kleypas As I started to read Worth Any Price, I kept flipping back to the cover to make sure I was reading a LK book and not another author by mistake. I’ve read a good amount of LK books and enjoy her style of writing greatly, but with Worth Any Price it was very unusual style that differ from other LK books I’ve read so far, one with more of a teasing sensual level,. I’ve only found in one other of her books. Rating this book was also tough, as it was a different take on LK’s style, but not in a bad way. LK always seems to make the best memorable heroes and Nick is right up there with the best, he was like quicksilver at times, always moving, thinking , trying to move on while fighting against the flow and the odds. At times I wanted to push him away and other times I wanted to hold him close, he was teasing with a devil may care smile and other times so very lonely and lost trying to find a new way in his life. He had one of the highest sensual levels that at times I did feel got in the way of finding out more of what’s going in his head , but it only went to show you a deeper meaning behind his actions and open his thoughts. Lottie was gentle and kind on the outside with a core of steel on the inside, while Nick came to be know as strong and reckless, Lottie really was the leader of the relationship, opening up to Nick and giving him the support he needed to face his past demons. While I enjoy the sensual level between these two, I did feel Nick’s lack of tack did get in the way, comparing his wife to his old lover/teacher. But taking a big grain of salt with that I looked at it at a different angle. Nick wasn’t raised to be a gentleman and was very blunt and truthful to a point of being hurtful and only had one lover beforehand so that pretty much made his a novice in a real relationship. A novice with expressing feelings and emotions toward his wife Lottie. I don’t think he really saw what he was doing until later on. Lottie took a lot of things in stride with Nick which I thought was really the only way to get though to him and which did in the end. Lottie knew when to be tough and when to be gentle and had a lot bucket load of common sense that many romance women lack at times. Worth any Price was a deep character driven story as the rest subplots were dealing with one or both Nick and Lottie. I liked how the story of the Bow Street Runners tied up nicely with the New Police coming into play finally shutting down the once famous Bow Street Runners. Giving everyone a fresh start at life, mostly Nick. Giving closure to not only the Runners but the series as well. Overall: I enjoyed Worth Any Price with two wonder leads that really drew you into their story, LK really showed another side to her writing that I couldn’t help but love in the end giving it high marks. A great ending to the Bow Street Runners series.
