    It's Dan Calebow's worst nightmare: Phoebe Somerville, a trendy New York knockout, inherits the Chicago Stars, the football team he coaches. And she wants to help him run it. Phoebe's sure he needs her. He's a sexist good-ol'-boy jock with a one-track mind. Surely she can straighten him out.

    What made the experience of listening to It Had to Be You the most enjoyable?

    The book was an easy read/listen. Romance/Drama with a bit of mystery. I totally enjoyed it although it certainly wasn't intellectually stimulating (not what I was looking for). there was a bit of mystery and drama in it. I can't say the story was all that believable, but if you are looking for a book to simply 'take you away' and entertain you then I would recommend this.


    Would you recommend It Had to Be You to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes ... I would recommend it as long as others realized it is chic lit ... easy read.


    Which character – as performed by Anna Fields – was your favorite?

    Love Anna Fields as a narrator!

    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    Would you listen to Me Before You again? Why?

    I enjoyed the story and could truly understand the differing points of views of the characters. The book was written with great detail... Al though a couple of times I felt it dragged a bit.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Louisa was my favorite character because I enjoyed her wit and also enjoyed seeing her develop and enjoy new experiences.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last night in Mauritius with Will and Clark.... Before Will said "no"...,also the last scene in Paris.


    If you could take any character from Me Before You out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Will.... If he was willing to talk I would love to hear of his adventures.
