    Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy," the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy," the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now—along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.

    "Great Book--Loved It"
    Overall

    She (SEP) did again, another good book I would give the book 5+ stars if I could. Many funny spots in the book and I loved the story and it was realistic--sexy scenes were great also.

    The only thing that would have made it better is to have Anna Fields reading it (which can't happen) or someone that gives that "oomph" that Anna did. Shannon Cochran did a pretty good job (I give her a 3+), but I did not get that feel I wanted to hear when you listen to Anna. I kept hearing someone with a northern dialect trying to portray a southerner and it was not all that convincing, but she still got her funny jabs in when required. While I think Anna was a northerner (from Seattle--right?), she got that southern accent down perfect. I suggest to whoever makes the decision to try Therese Plummer or Anne Dawe next time. I wonder if anyone from the Audible reads the ratings.

    Despite my critique of Ms. Cochran's reading, I will listen again.

    I can't wait for Lucy's story. SEP, hopefully it will not be another year before you write her story. And another Chicago Stars story as well.

    What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he's been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He's always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem. So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack's pushing for more.

    Great Series!! I've enjoyed the whole family, small town, everyone knows everybody. Never realized that a hero would go through so much but it happens. I look for books narrated by Amy Rubinate. She can changes those voices so well.

    I look forward to Connor's story. Not sure if he is next but I am going to keep looking for KH's next book.

    Lacey Daughtry's perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother's murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother's best friends and fellow officers for protection...and comfort. Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she's dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she's harbored for so long.

    Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

    He's a reclusive writer whose imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill his characters with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill an audience with laughs. But she's not laughing now.

    The book was good but not my favorite SEP. No matter I am waiting on her next book already. I am going to listen again to make sure I am judging it right.

    But you know what is missing is a narrator that can pull off a punch line. Amanda Ronconi would be so great. I have suggested it more than one time, but they aren't listening.:) While Erin Bennett (much better than the previous narrator) was good, I still miss Anne (may she rest in peace) so much (she was the original narrator of her SEP books). She could pull off SEP's sarcastic punch lines and have you laughing out loud. No matter I am waiting on her next book already.

    I suggest to the powers to be to get Amanda Ronconi to narrate the next SEP book--hope it is soon.

    When Samantha Cross goes to her brother's employers to ask for help, she had no idea that it would change her life forever. To repay their debt, they both have to live and work at the Dakota Ranch for one year. Samantha has no option but to accept.

    Her brother's employers, Shayne and Jackson Montgomery, are not what she expected. Jackson, the younger brother is too handsome and charming to resist, especially when he sets his sights on her.

    Lisa Jackson's novels of romance and suspense race up the best-seller charts. In Left to Die, the Pinewood County Sheriff 's Department is on the trail of a cold-blooded killer who acts as a savior to women stranded during terrible mountain snowstorms before stripping them of their dignity and leaving them to die, a victim of the elements. But the killer's latest victim managed to escape, leading some to believe there may now be an imposter on the loose.

    I enjoyed, but I think it went too extreme especially towards the end. But when you think about it psychos are ridiculous in what they can think up so maybe not as extreme as I thought. I will say there was a great twist in the book that I did not figure out until we found out the actual person was. I do think the narrator got a little tired of it close to the end-maybe he should have taken a break in between--just kidding. Don't think he was a bad as some of the other reviews were.

    I am still debating as to whether I will get the next in the series, but know I am not going to go straight and get it. Going after something calmer first.

    Good series. Romance scenes were good, although sometimes you got the impression that they did "it" every singe day they were together and we know that is not believable. I enjoyed how the narrators were broken up and they both did a good job. I heard one opinion that they thought that the male character sounded a little nasily (? spelling), but I thought they did a great job--everyone is entitled to their opinion. I am sure I will download other books from Ms.Cates and look for other books narrated by these two.

    Jack McLachlan is a winemaking magnate and easily one of Australia's most eligible bachelors. His success and wealth makes him no stranger to the complications of romantic relationships and that's why he goes to extreme measures to avoid the hassle. He prefers simplicity in the form of a beautiful female companion with no strings attached. He arranges relationships like business deals and they're always the same. No long term relationships. No real names.

    When lovers Christian and Joel advertise for a cleaner, they aren’t expecting - or wanting - Mrs. Doubtfire, although one of the applicants could double as Mrs. D’s sister. But when little Susie Hood walks into their lives, scraped knees from a tumble with her bike and with the looks and heart of a broken angel, the attraction is instant and irrevocable and it’s all they can do not to lock her up and throw away the key. They want her in their bed, their lives, now…forever… She is everything they wanted, needed - but she has to want both of them.
