    4 Scars of the past Stars Again the Magic was a good read It s has two love stories in it This book kinda reminded me of 2 of Jane Austen s books Pride and Prejudice because it has two sister s love stories in it Aline reminded me of Elizabeth Bennet and Livia reminded me of Jane Bennet It also reminded me of Persuasion with the second chance love story about the hero being beneath the heroine s station in live so he goes off makes something of himself and comes back to rub it in her face only to realize he still loves her So yea I was feeling Jane Austen all over this book Which is fine because I love me some Jane Austen I enj...

    5 stars Historical RomanceI really enjoyed loved this touching, emotional read of two childhood best friends turned sweethearts of opposing social classes whose love is torn apart by unfair prejudices, society rules and expectations, secrets, lies, mistrust, pride, and vanity I loved McKenna, even when he was plotting Lady Aline s ruin and being a cruel alpha, and his volatile and intense emotional reactions were so brutally honest and heartbreaking Aline s staunch secrecy and foolish pride drove me nuts I mean really, come on You re apart from the man you love for 12 years and then you finally have a miraculous, magical second chance, only you re too chicken, distrusting, insecure, and vain to admit the truth and put your feelings out there Arrrgh Still, I was rooting for McKenna to soften his ways and for Aline to finally come to her senses and admit her big secret before it was too late because those two definitely needed and deserved a HEA And I really enjoyed the sweet, steamy secondary romance between Gideon and Olivia, too.It s a sad, beautiful, affecting love story that stays with you once you ve turned that last page.These poignant lines spoken by McKenna to Lady Aline brought tears to my eyes and pretty much reveal and convey the heart and soul of the story For thousands of nights I dreamed of making love to you No man on earth has ever hated sunrise as much as I do I want morning and noon and nightfall with you I want your tears, your smiles, y...

    Lisa Kleypas has done it again, and in a big way Again the Magic is a wonderful story with so many dimensions and so much depth that I was up until the wee hours of the morning, unable to put it down This story is actually a prequel to the Wallflowers series While I ve never seen it listed as a numbered book in the series, the characters in Again the Magic are featured heavily in It Happened One Autumn, book 2 of the Wallflowers, as well as in the other Wallflower novels.There are so many good things to say about this book that I don t know where to start As usual with Kleypas writing, we have characters who are so well developed that they cease to be words on a page and become living, breathing people We can imagine them as friends, family, lovers and even enemies Again the Magic actually tells 2 stories There is the main hero heroine theme revolving around Lady Aline and McKenna, and a secondary hero heroine theme revolving around Lady Olivia Marsden, Aline s younger sister, and Gideon Shaw, McKenna s American business partner However, I find it difficult to describe Olivia s and Gideon s part of the story as secondary because it was so full, so detailed, that it felt ...

    Boy did I love this one, but the TSTL heroine almost ruined it for me Oh Aline, what you put poor McKenna throughMy thoughtsI should have known what I was in for, after blubbering and sniffing my way through the first 3 chapters this was one angsty read I totally fell for John McKenna, who went from bastard stableboy in love with a beautiful, unattainable daughter of a duke, to millionaire American in 12 short years When 19 year old Lady Aline Marsden sent young McKenna away and how she did it after her father threatened to ruin him after their affair was found out, my heart broke for both of them And when McKenna came back after 12 years, so cold and with a plan for revenge against his first love, I was disappointed in him even though I could hardly blame him But what Aline put him through I wanted to shake that woman and tell her tell him already, tell him why you sent him away and for God s sake, tell him what you re hiding from him I wanted her to be honest and put it out there already, and to believe in his love for her But when she finally got McKenna to get over his revenge plan and declare his true feelings again, I thought this is it, this is what she was waiting for, to see if he still cared And then she did the most asinine thing Ugh I said Noyou didn t just do that to him again Well, luckily for Aline she has a smart brother, who knocked som...

    4 Stars An enjoyable, steamy escape This isn t exactly breaking news to romance readers, but Lisa Kleypas is a goddess in her genre She truly excels in her steamy love scenes which are as passionate as they are explicit Again the Magic is an edgy historical romance that offers a double dose of taboo love during a time where venturing outside of one s social class was not only unheard of, but inarguably forbidden Our main couple, Aline and McKenna, are childhood friends who gradually and helplessly fall in love But Aline is the daughter of an insufferable Earl who believes the only purpose his daughter serves is to marry well , and will not stand for her falling for a mere servant Aline has no choice but to crush poor McKenna s heart and send him packing But McKenna eventually returns with bitterness on his tongue and revenge against Aline in his heartAlongside Aline s and McKenna s romance runs a secondary love story, which is a little less forbidden but also holds a healthy level of taboo I initially wasn t sure I wanted my main couple sharing the spotlight, and although the additional romance ended up being a nice c...

    This really should be a five star book, but it had a few issues that make it hard to give it a five star rating Fundamentally, the secondary love story takes up way too much of this book I believe that McKenna and Aline s beautiful love story deserves time than was spent on it in this story I have nothing against Gideon and Olivia, but seeing their relationship unfold at the expense of McKenna and Aline was frustrating to me It was almost like LK was finding it too painful to delve into the angst of their story and switched the camera away to focus on Gideon and Olivia If I had my way, I would have introduced G and O in this story, and continued their relationship in a short story Instead, we see them go from strangers to lovers to in love in my opinion in a manner that is much convincing than the main couple s story But what about the characters that I read this book for Well, there is the beginning of their starcrossed love John McKenna as a lowly stable groom, and Aline as a shy, quiet teen who was in love with McKenna from the get go They were close friends who were on the cusp of being lovers and Unfortunately, Aline s awful dad finds out and kicks McKenna off the estate, and he s forced to make his way in the cold, cruel world He thinks that Aline didn t love him and easily forgot about him, so he has driven himself to get revenge against her by making himself into a very rich, powerful man, no matter what the c...

    3 1 2 stars but I m rounding it down to 3 stars because I didn t like it as much as the other LK books I ve rated 4 stars I m not going to write a review because there are already a gazillion reviews not only here but all over the internet I m just going to point out what I liked disliked in this book, since I seem to be in the minority for not loving it as everyone else.Likes McKenna, Gideon, Livia, Westclif In sum, every character but Aline and her father, of course The beginning of the story I could really feel how much McKenna and Aline loved each other, how hard it was for her to send him away and how devastated he became The ending of the story, when Aline stops being TSTL and McKenna lets her see how much she hurt him The love scenes, of course Dislikes Aline and her ridiculous excuses for sending McKenna away the 2nd time I was OK with her reason for sending him away the 1st time Two romances crammed into one book I wish LK had written Aline s and Livia s stories separately As it was, both romances fell short and slightly rushed to me I believe I d have been lenient towards Aline if I had spent time with her.Well, I think that explains why this book didn t wow me I liked it, but I didn t love it Interesting tidbit During their business visit to London,...

    5 TAKE ME AS I AM stars Since the day that John McKenna had been brought to the estate at the age of 8, he and Aline had been constant companions for ten years, climbing trees, swimming in the river, and running around barefoot But eventually things had begun to change between them No healthy young man could fail to be stirred and set off kilter by Aline, who at the age of 17, had become the loveliest girl on God s green earth.Lady Aline MarsdenWarm, high spirited, and beautiful in all ways Aline s looks were the kind that caused the heart to stop and the breath to catch.McKenna McKenna was her counterpart, her compass, her sanctuary Aline was his curse, his fate, his consuming desire.You think you want me now but you ll change Someday you ll find it damned easy to forget about me A servant..This story was so damn beautiful Young forbidden love It captured me completely and I was in love I found myself gripped from page one and I kept bawling my eyeballs out I love second chance epic love Their forbidden relationship was discov...

    If I were asked to choose one special book by my favourite author Lisa Kleypas, it would have to be AGAIN THE MAGIC, the prequel to her Wallflower series The emotional impact of this powerful and moving love story never diminishes no matter how many times I read it.Aline Marsden and John McKenna are young and passionately in love, but it s a forbidden love Aline is the eldest daughter of the Earl of Westcliff while McKenna is a mere stable lad on her father s estate Their happiness comes to an abrupt end when Aline s father discovers their liaison In order to save McKenna from her father s terrible retribution, Aline must ensure that when he leaves Stony Cross Park, McKenna will never return The only way is to convince him that she has never really loved him You re a bastard, McKenna you have no family, no blood, no means what could you offer me that I couldn t get from any other man of low breed Go, please Devastated, she can only watch him walk out of her life Shortly after McKenna s departure, Aline is injured in a terrible accident, which almost claims her life and leaves her badly scarred.Twelve years have passed and Aline is still living at Stony Cross Park wi...

    I ll marry no man but you McKenna And if you ever leave me, I ll be alone for the rest of my life Aline I would never leave unless you told me to go Aline was his curse, his fate, his consuming desire He would never stop wanting her, no matter what she did, no matter how many oceans and continents he managed to put between them No man on earth has ever hated sunrise as much as I do You sleep too, she said groggily, her hand creeping to the center of his chest No McKenna smiled and pressed a soft kiss against her temple His voice was husky with wonder Not when staying awake is better than anything I could find in a dream When I finish a book such as this I always ...
