Hot Shot | [Susan Elizabeth Phillips]

Hot Shot

Her name is Susannah, but three men she brings together call her Hot Shot. She's the spark to a daring venture they start in a garage and build into an empire. For Sam, a rebel, the business is just the thrill he seeks; for Yank, an eccentric inventor, it's his vision fulfilled; and for Mitch, a starched marketing genius, it's a risk he has to take.

Publisher's Summary

Her name is Susannah, but three men she brings together in 1970s California call her Hot Shot. She's the spark to a daring venture they start in a garage and build into an empire. For Sam, a rebel, the business is just the thrill he seeks; for Yank, an eccentric inventor, it's his vision fulfilled; and for Mitch, a starched marketing genius, it's a risk he has to take.

But dreams can have a cruel price. For Susannah, daughter of a bigwig in a competing company, success means losing her family. The trade-off is unimagined courage and a passion that will enrich her dramatically. Is it worth it?

    "Fun"

    This was fun to listen to and brought me back to my early computer days. It may be most appealing to romance loving computer nerds such as myself. The comparison to Apple were obvious, but fun for reminiscing over those early days of the personal computer.

    "Not worth the 2 credits"

    I have listen to all but Glitter Baby - I held out on this one because it was 2 credits, personally this was not worth the credits - it was not one SEP better books. I did not find the story to be interesting and the characters mundane ??? I am a big fan of Anna Fields but even did not enjoy her reading this book. I wish I could get at least 1 credit back

    "Not One of Her Bests"

    Not one of SEPs best, but was still a good listen. I did find myself drifting off in the middle a little bit, but would still recommend this read - after you've listened to all the others!

    "Ok"

    This was not as good as the other books of SEP. I found myself fast forwarding at times. Her other books are much better.

    Story
    "Great love story, great sense of humor...."
    Where does Hot Shot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    one of my favorites


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Shot?

    the humerous bantering between the the two lovers


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    she is a great narrator for Suzanne E Phillips, always portrays her wit, and edgy remarks


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    had to read/listen to the enitre book in one sitting....

    Story
    "Not your average SEP But Still Very Good"
    Would you listen to Hot Shot again? Why?

    Yes, the book had a interesting plot and a complicated romance. I really liked the descriptions of all of the technical aspects and I felt like I had a better understanding of the early computer industry after listening to this book.


    Have you listened to any of Anna Fields’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Anna Fields was amazing as usual, I recommend all of the books Anna Fields has narrated.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Towards the end there was a lot of drama and it kept me riveted. I love when a book can accomplish that.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not SEP's usual book but it is one of her earlier ones and in my opinion one of her better ones. It doesn't follow the same format as some of her newer books and although I like those books too, this one has more substance.

    Story
    "Susan Elizabeth Phillips dose it again!"
    Where does Hot Shot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the top 5


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Susannah Faulconer over comes a number of issues and grows as a person. It was frustrating at times to watch her be defenseless against her father, her fiance and then Sam, then find her voice and her back bone!


    What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It took a little bit of getting used to that somewhat lock jaw tone in Anna voice but she did a great job of distinguishing each character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This would be hard to decide, the book covered the computer revolution, not just the revolution of its main characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips never disappoints! Her books are always fabulous! check out her match maker series. I love that her characters flow through so many books!

    I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.

    "Loved the story. Love the author, again and again"

    Go ahead, spend the credit. If you love SEP you will love this as well. As usual. I use her comedic comments in my social life. She is clever, therefore I get a double whamy!
