This is the story picks up just as Lucy Jorik decided to run out on her wedding and jump on the back of a beat-up motorcycle to embark on The Great Escape. The Great Escape take her to Great Lakes island where she hopes to find direction for her life and where she meets a dark brooding man name Panda with a mysterious past.
The book was not as fun as Call Me Irresistible but since I was listening to it in the car – it entertained me. What struck me was I felt like I already read many of these story lines in other SEP books; such as going to the Great Lakes in Michigan (This Heart of Mine), Mike and Brie we dislike us theme (Natural Born Charmer), Temple – the overzealous fitness guru ( Match Me if You Can).
The one redeeming factor was that Shannon Cochran narrated this books and I enjoyed almost as much as I did Call Me Irresistible.
Love Romance, Suspense, strong character development a must. Authors I go to: Erik Larson (NF), Stephen King, Suzanne Brockmann, Susan Elizabeth Phillips,
This is a perfect summer read. Lucy escapes the alter on the back of his motorcycle. All that togetherness leads to some steamy nights. Lucy is not ready to return to her "real" life and heads to a summer vacation community. There she meets new friends, all colorful characters fully developed by Ms. Phillips. But the crux of this novel is the heat between Panda and Lucy. Can the former first lady's daughter capture the heart of one damaged, former cop and soldier?
Definitely worth finding out for yourself.
Narration is good.
Having been a fan of Anna Fields, I was deeply saddened to learn of her death. Shannon Cochran has a tough act to follow but does an admirable job.
One of my top favorite audiobooks. I have listened to it twice.
When Lucy was Viper at the beach house when Panda showed up.
When Bree found Toby and told him how much she cared for him.
This a such a great continuation Mr. Irresistible. You got to find out what really happened to Lucy.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
I love most (but not all) of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' novels. Her characters are well written and the dialog is witty.
What I liked about this one is that it is taking place at the same time as Meg and Ted's story, though the only interactions are the ones described in Call Me Irrisitable. Lucy and Panda's story is so different, and I have to admit that I lost sleep over it (as with any good book). The settings and secondary characters are also compelling. I also like it that SEP usually has a secondary story going on in the background that intersects, but does not interfere with the "main event". I liked those characters and the conflict in that secondary background plot.
The narration was smooth and the differentiation between characters was evident in the reading. Overall, I enjoyed this one and will listen to it again.
I love all of phillips books this one is no different
It is worth the credit
Just what you'd expect from Susan Elizabeth Phillips, or for that matter light and frothy romances in general. Generally enjoyable while doing mundane chores but not overly riveting. The narrator did a respectable job. But...I found her voice very similar to Martha Stewart's, except with more warmth and emotion. I could never shake the disconcerting feeling that I was listening to Martha -- of whom I am not a great fan. Just listen to the sample first.
I have loved all of SEP books and this one ranks up there.
I would compare this book to "Call Me Irresistable" and it falls a little short.
Panda is my favorite. So strong, sexy, but still messed up.
When they brought up the counseling for vetrans.
I was a little upset with all the physical damage that Lucy felt she had to do to herself and distracted me from her purpose to "find" herself. However, SEP did a great job with the story and I would recommend it.
