Susan Phillips is in my opinion the best contemporary romance writer of all times and 3 of her books are in my top 10 favorite books ever. I understand that this is SEP's first contemporary romance being rereleased. It is better than Fancy Pants, Just Imagine and Hot Shot, but not as good as Lady Be Good and Natural Born Charmer. The story lacks the humor of her Chicago Stars series, and the topic is more serious. Just like Honey Moon, it is the story of a teenager struggling to find her identity and dealing with becoming an overnight celebrity. Fleur is the bastard child of Errol Flynn and his groupie Belinda. She is dealt a selfish, manipulative mother and a cold souless and calculating step father. The love story in the book is very touching, the struggles facing the hero & heroine are tangible and real. The only thing that bothered me is the step father. He was a tad too creepy for me. While there may have been less humor in this book than her usual style, it is compensated by a lot of heart. Julia Gibson did a fabulous job narrating, even though she had big shoes to fill after the tragic death of SEP's usual narrator Anna Fields/Kate Fleming. I gave this book 4 stars only because I have a much higher expectation for SEP than any other author. Download any of her books and enjoy the ride. She is outstanding.
