    Davie—an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi—is positive her life couldn’t be any worse. She has the meanest mother in the South, possibly the world, and on top of that, she’s pretty sure she’s ugly. Just when she’s resigned herself to her fate, she sees a movie that will change her life—Sixteen Candles. But in her case, life doesn’t imitate art.

    Stephanie says: "WOW."

    Overall

    I seriously loved this book! From the Southern narrator, to the clever writing I was hooked. I blew through these 32 Candles only to be saddened that it was over. It is exactly what you expect it to be, and yet the unexpected is there too. Ernessa Carter rocked my world! Molly Ringwald would be proud, I'm sure. Great story of self actualization, even in the face of misfortune. I highly recommend this book.

    Georgie York, once the costar of America's favorite television sitcom, has been publicly abandoned by her famous husband, her film career has tanked, her father is driving her crazy, and her public image as a spunky heroine is taking a serious beating. What should a down-on-her-luck actress do?

    Michelene says: "Good not Great!"
    "One of the BEST SEP novels ever..."
    Overall

    I have listened to almost all of the SEP books and I can honestly say this one is in the top three. This was a great love story painted in a hollywood type setting. Georgie is a very likable character that I connected to instantly. I think I listened to this is 2 days because I just wanted to find out what happened next. Note that Julia Gibson reads this one instead of Anna Fields. There is also some weird music going on, but I think Julia does an excellent job overall and the novel is great.

    Jane Darlington is a genius at physics, but there's one problem she can't solve. She yearns for a child, but wants to spare it the pain of growing up as...well, a nerd. And surely any child of Jane's would be a little too brainy for the playground set. So she sets out to find a special man to father her child, someone without too much gray-matter between his ears: in short, a big, strong dope. Cal Bonner, legendary pro quarterback, seems to fit the bill. But there's something Dr. Jane hasn't counted on.

    Ella says: "Lots of Fun"

    Overall

    I listened to this one while I was at work, and I was impressed at how much research SEP must have had to do to portray Jane the scientist. Another great book here with the awesome Anna Fields narrating. Funny at times, and as always SEP delivers a great love story.

    The War Between the States may be over for the rest of the country, but not for Kit Weston. Disguised as a boy, she's come to New York City to kill Baron Cain, the man who stands between her and Risen Glory, the South Carolina home she loves. But unknown to Kit, the Yankee war hero is more than her bitterest enemy; he's also her guardian. And he'll be a lot harder to kill than she's figured on.

    Laura C. Pailler says: "Susan Elizabeth's great formula"
    "This was a weird SEP book, but still pretty good."
    Overall

    I have listened to almost all of SEP's books so I thought this one was going to be the same as the rest. Boy was I wrong. I had a hard time getting into this one because it is set post civil war and starts out with a stable boy who is really a girl. Strange beginning. But once it gets moving this is one of the best love stories SEP has ever told.

    It seems like an easy assignment for an assertive but sweet woman like Gracie Snow: track down her friend, Bobby Denton, a famous ex-jock, and bring him to Heaven (Texas, that is) to shoot a movie. How could he refuse a glamorous offer like that? Easy....

    Diana says: "If you haven't met Bobby Tom . . ."
    "Awesome!"
    Overall

    I've listened to almost all of SEPs books but this one was one of my all time favorites. I highly recommend this one if you like a good love story with a lot of comic relief.

    For Francesca Day, it's not the end of her world, but close to it. She's London-bred, wealthy, and sophisticated, but fate leaves her flat broke and stranded on a back road in Texas. Now she's got to deal with reality without her rich girl props. How can she do it? In Dallas Beaudine, gritty and handsome, lies the answer. He stops his car to help Francesca, whose life needs a tune-up, as well as her car. Stopping could lead to the biggest mistake, or best time, ever.

    Donna A says: "Unlikable Main Character"
    "An awesome love story"
    Overall

    SEP and Anna Fields are an awesome combination. I thought this book was really great. I enjoyed the story of Dally and Francesca. It drug on a bit at times, to the point where I was like, GET TOGETHER ALREADY!! But as always, SEP does not disappoint.

    Lady Emma Wells-Finch comes to Texas on a mission: she has two weeks to ruin her reputation. The only thing that will save her from losing everything is complete and utter disgrace. World famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into chauffeuring Lady Emma around. He needs to prove himself completely respectable to get back into his game. And when a gorgeous man who can't afford another scandal meets a hardheaded woman who's determined to cause one, anything can happen...even love.

    Pat says: "Delightful"
    "Cute, funny and enjoyable."
    Overall

    I enjoyed Lady Emma as she tried to be "Bad" even though she was good to the bone. Very cute story and as always, a great love story from SEP.

    Rachel Stone is a widow and single mother, broke and alone. Worse, her late husband, a televangelist, stole five million dollars, none of which came to her. Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

    Gina says: "Read Nobody’s Baby first"
    "Good listen."
    Overall

    I enjoyed this SEP book. Anna Fields as the narrator is always good. I really felt for the main character in this book and I was rooting for her all the way. Her little boy was a sweetheart too.

    Sometimes in life you need a little breathing room, especially when your life has just fallen apart. Dr. Isabel Favor, America's diva of self help, knows this all too well. She's lost her fiancé to an earth mother, her accountant has absconded with her money, and her self-help empire is in shambles. She flees the country to Tuscany, waiting for life to settle down, but the biggest disaster lies just ahead. On one unforgettable night, she's about to meet Lorenzo Gage, Hollywood's favorite villain.

    Brenda says: "An enjoyable read."
    "Okay..."
    Overall

    I love SEP but this book was a little too predictable. Just a simple little love story. If you like good love stories then this should do the trick.

    Dangerous sex, family secrets, irresistible power, mega money, and two murders equal one reckless week in New York. Lovers and Players takes you on a high-powered trip from Park Avenue to Brooklyn. Jackie Collins is back in her most deliciously scandalous novel yet. And she's giving her readers a revealing look into the private realms of her fabulously rich and sexy cast of characters.

    D. Arena says: "Perfect as usual!"
    "Pretty good book!"
    Overall

    This book kept me interested and I would have given it 5 stars if not for the horrible narrator. She was HORRIBLE at all of the accents to the point where it was distracting and almost racist. Anyway, the content of the book was good so if you can overlook the bad narration then it is worth it.

    Arranged marriages seldom happen in modern America, so Daisy Devreaux hates her father's ultimatum: marry the humorless man he has picked for her, or go to jail. It's not much of a deal for Alex Markov, the prospective groom, either. He's got no time to indulge an uptown girl. So Alex puts Daisy to work in his traveling circus, expecting the harsh realities will break her. Instead, he finds she's got heart enough for both of them.

    Loy says: "classic Susan Phillips"
    "Circus themed love story"
    Overall

    I like SEP, and though the circus theme was a little strange, she still managed to pull off a great love story. If you like SEP you will like this one too.
