    1. This book reminded me of the time when my prostitute twin sister let me be mistaken for her when I had amenesia after being attacked by her angry john (and father of her unborn baby). I was saved by an angry policeman who thought I was the hooker that once spurned him (no amount of money in the world! Not for every loose Canadian coin in the couch, etc.). Luckily, he had seen Overboard with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn (a classic film) and let me think we had a relationship where he wore the pan [...]

    2. 3.5/5I’ve been indulging myself in Lisa Kleypas’ books for the past few weeks and have come to appreciate her story telling talents. Perhaps because this is the first book in the Bow Street Runners series, it didn’t grab me quite the way her Wallflower series did. I didn’t find the characters quite as charismatic as those in her other books.It has an interesting plot – a courtesan with amnesia being pursued by someone who is trying to kill her and the man who saved her life and is now [...]

    3. "She was sore in places she had never been sore before.” Is this an awesome quote, or what?I think OD’ed on this girly porn, I had a good reason but I need to stop now and read some James Joyce or something.Spoilers ahead. I am not going to even officially mark it as a spoiler because if you didn’t see that coming from the very first page then you don’t deserve to be warned. A certain tall, strapping Bow Street Runner named Grant finds a nearly dead woman fished out of Thames. To his sur [...]

    4. OK, the "big twist" was obvious as was the "bad guy". Maybe I have read too many Romantic Suspense books over the years that I can pick up on these things! I loved Grant, a commoner, vowed never to wed but he is attracted to the lovely Vivien.I am really interested in the next book. Sir Ross Cannon sounds like an intriguing character. “His lips pressed against her forehead and she felt him smile against her skin. "Believe mee only place in the world I want to be is wherever you are."

    5. 3.5 Stars Not an all time favorite by this author, but that endingRIGHT IN THE FEELS!! I wasn't sure I'd like a story about a famous London hooker. I'm not one to be very forgiving of overly promiscuous leads, especially females. Those midwestern roots of mine are showing!! But this heroine won me over very quickly. She was a nice little mystery to unveil. The hero wasn't as charismatic as Kleypas' other men, so maybe that's why the story didn't grab me as much. Still, a nice HR with a great mes [...]

    6. This is my first historical romance book by Lisa Kleypas. I found a certain ease about her writing and I have to say I rather enjoyed it. Even though Grant was a bit of a brut sometimes I found him to be charming. And Vivien was sweet and kind. A perfect match for him. It had an interesting plot and I loved the ending!!I'm certainly looking forward to reading more of her historical romance books.

    7. Love / Hate Love / Hate Love / HateBut one cannot deny the ultimate apparent hotness of the hero. So, he gets a Daniel Craig. I mean he goes tearing after the bad guy, beats said bad guy up and is torn between giving said bad guy his final look at the world. Yea, he's alpha hot. But he's also an a$$hole. Don't be fooled. Setting / Time / Genre: RegencySeries: Yep and I think I very well may need to read the restSexy times: Yes, and in comparison to a Joanna Shupe being a 5 and Julia Quinn being [...]

    8. Estoy rogando a Dios que este sea uno de los primeros libros de la Kleypas pues a mí no me la ha recordado en NADA.Me pareció soso, aburrido y sin el sello característico de la autora. A los personajes les faltaba alma y la historia deja mucho que desear.El intento de intriga/suspenso fue solo eso un intento.No sé, amo a la Kleypas pero sus libros (los que he leído últimamente) me están dejando más bien fría y con grandes sentimientos de decepción.Por cierto la traducción? LAMENTABLE. [...]

    9. 3.5 The twist was everything stars Not one of LK's best,but nevertheless a well written read.

    10. 3.5 starsI liked this book, but the plot needed a deft hand to pull it off. Lisa Kleypas did in fact pull it off, but not to my satisfaction. It was good, it kept me reading, but I don't really think I enjoyed the hero of this book for at least 75% of the book. I did come to like him, but with all the descriptions of him as being large, hulking, a lummox, a thick pelt of fur (chest hair), having large hands, I just pictured him as Robert, the brother from Everybody Loves Raymond. I couldn't help [...]

    11. I read this book many many years ago and loved it. It is a wonderfully written book, definitely one of Lisa Kleypas' classics. Bow Street Runner rescued the virgin sister of a famous courtesan. The attraction is steamy and the lead characters very likable.What I find a bit unsettling is I never really knew whether the hero liked the heroine or her sister. The mistaken identity is naturally the big plot in the book. It did make me wonder, is he attracted to the heroin, really? Or it is her sister [...]

    12. Primero de una serie, y sigo con el resto. Me han gustado los 2 protagonistas, romance con suspense, aunque averiguan quien es el malvado en un plis-plas. Y voy a por Ross

    13. I´m a fairly new reader of LK´s books and I´m yet to read a bad one. STWOM is not the best I´ve ever read, but it´s very good.The "big mystery" involving the heroine´s identity was pretty easy to figure out, but I enjoyed following the hero try to solve it. I loved Grant, a working-class hero who was a welcome "breeze of fresh air" among the usual Lords that dominate historical romances. I loved Victoria too, an adorable "country girl" who was the perfect match for Grant. I truly enjoyed s [...]

    14. Reviewed for THC ReviewsI first read Lisa Kleypas’ Bow Street Runners series about ten years ago when I’d just been coming off a book drought that had lasted at least that long. I still marvel at how I, a self-confessed bookaholic, could have gone so long without reading much at all, but I guess becoming a mom can completely rearrange your life and priorities that way. In 2007, I promised myself that I would get back to reading regularly and I haven’t looked back in the decade since. If me [...]

    15. When Bow Street Runner Grant Morgan is called to the docks of the Thames River to check out a dead body, he discovers Vivien Duvall, the most infamous courtesan in London, affording him the perfect opportunity for a slight against him a few months before. When Vivien wakes up, though, she suffers from amnesia and is not at all the woman Grant remembers. She'sce? Against all odds, Grant starts to care for Vivien and devotes himself to finding the man who tried to murder her. They end up falling f [...]

    16. 2.5The good thing about this story is that the characters aren't the usual ones. They are not members of aristocracy and overcoming the issue of her being a prostitute should have been a problem then. The Runners are great choice.After Grant Morgan takes Vivien to his home to recover, remembering how she spread gossip about him two months ago because he refused her, all he wants is revenge. He doesn't expect Vivien not to remember who she is nor that she is completely different person from manip [...]

    17. Tres estrellas por la traduccion. Que haya tardado un año en retomarlo por la mala traducción de Zeta Bolsillo (Ediciones B) tiene narices. La historia en general está bien, me ha gustado bastante; con tintes de intriga y un ansia de venganza que poco a poco va cambiando a amor. No obstante, la malísisma traducción me sacaba una y otra vez de la lectura y es algo que no soporto. No le pongo un 1 porque la historia creada por la autora es buena pero los señores de la editorial en España me [...]

    18. Grant Morgan es uno de los detectives más afamados de Londres, uno de sus nuevos casos es conocer al hombre que intentó ahogar a una bella joven en las aguas del Támesis, para más Inri esa joven es Vivien Rose Duvall, una de las más famosas cortesanas por la que Grant no siente mucho aprecio. Vivien será toda una contradicción para Grant mientras que ésta no se reconoce en la joven que Morgan describe.Ésta es una de las novelas que estaría en mi lista de mejores novelas de Lisa Kleypas [...]

    19. There are two things I can always count on when it comes to LK's books: a great story and rememberable characters. While the story of STWOV was great I felt the characters were less then remarkable.Grant was a great hero with his strength in justice and his love for books was a total bonus, Sadly, I felt his narrow-mindness toward Vivien’s remarks were below him and dragged down the story at times making you wanna smack him over the head, even when something wasn’t right and staring him righ [...]

    20. "I think the truth is something you recognize with your heart, even when the evidence seems to prove otherwise."

    21. 4.5 starsI haven't read a Lisa Kleypas novel in a long, long time (the last book I read was "Love in the Afternoon" and I think I read it in 2009/2010) and I'm definitely not regretting buying and reading "Someone To Watch Over Me", although I initially wanted to read her newest historical "A Cold-hearted Rake". Unfortunately the more or less disappointed reviews of "A Cold-hearted Rake" made me starting an older series of her instead and I think I made the right decision. I will probably read " [...]

    22. A woman with no memories. A man with a grudge. When fate brought them together, can a case of mistaken identity be the path to true love?This is my third Lisa Kleypas book, and once again, it is the start of another series. Here we meet Grant Morgan, famous Bow Street Runner, as he was called to help rescue a woman, who looks like Vivien Rose, the London beauty that had humiliated him in the past. However, as he started to get to know more of his beautiful charge, he found himself attracted to h [...]

    23. I thought the big reveal was kind of a cop out in a way. As in the case of the heroes in some of Eloisa James' early stuff (like the Pleasures series), it was really hard to see Grant as this dreamy guy when he said, felt, and did some really awful things, but it was ok because(view spoiler)[the heroine is really just a sheltered FORGIVING country virgin who didn't at all mind being verbally abused, set up for ridicule and as bait for a killer, and then summarily deflowered! (hide spoiler)]Yeah, [...]

    24. A little different than the other Bow Street reads by LK. Did not have as much romance than first thought however the mystery and suspense in this story was there. Grant Morgan's Bow Street Runner reputation in London's elite group of detectives, now allows him to investigate someone who jilted him from his past hence enters Vivien a well known Madame in her own right. There is enough twists and turns in the story that allows the relationship between Grant and Vivien to develop. I enjoyed the re [...]

    25. Wow. I never thought I'd say this about a Lisa Kleypas book, but this one was just okay. Yep. With this series we've moved on to the Bow Street Runners and their paths to true love and we start out with adventurous Grant Morgan. He's called to a crime scene where a drown woman's body awaits him to be investigated with signs of strangulation on her neck. Only she isn't a dead body, she's very much alive! What? Oh yes. The people who are at the crime scene, including the one who rescued the woman [...]

    26. This book really didn't do it for me.Although I thought the initial premise was good, a beautiful courtesan found half dead in the Thames, and the subsequent quest to find her attempted killer, etc it all just began to fall flat for me very quickly.1. I thought Victoria's character just a terrible bore. Self-effacing, meek, weak, dependent. I couldn't see what he saw in her, except her looks. She reminded me of Emmaline in Devil in Winter, except unlike Emmaline, she doesn't come into her own by [...]

    27. Book 1 in Lisa Kleypas's Bow Street Trilogy. (Book 2 is Lady Sophia's Lover, Book 3 is Worth Any Price)Okay, perhaps my starrage is skewed. 4.5 stars! This is one book series where I'd say READ THESE BOOKS IN ORDER!! Because I read Book 2 first and I knew some key information that threw the surprise of this book completely off. So READ THIS FIRST!!Anyway, so Grant Morgan is a Bow Street Runner who is called to a case. A fisherman found a woman who had drowned in the Thames (pronounced TEMS, rhym [...]

    28. A different kind of historical here. Reads more like romantic suspense set in a historical backdrop at times so it’s not always focused on the love story like some of her other books. The beginning is good but somewhere around the middle I started getting a bit bored so it just makes a 4 star rating —more like a 3 ¾ (lol!). Kleypas still does a great job of making you feel like you can actually see what she’s describing but there were too many long narrative passages which dragged the boo [...]
