Publisher's Summary

In This Heart of Mine, you met Kevin Tucker. Now meet Kevin's shark of an agent...and Annabelle Granger, the girl least likely to succeed.

Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement. But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.

With his money-green eyes and calculated charm, Heath Champion is the best sports agent in the country. He's wealthy, driven, and gorgeous, so why does he need a matchmaker, especially a red-haired screw-up like Annabelle Granger? True, she's entertaining, and she does have a certain quirky appeal. But Heath is searching for the ultimate symbol of his success: the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right?

If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town, a man who's beginning to ask himself...exactly how perfect does perfect have to be?

    "Sweet"

    Sweet characters, fun story. This is the first book by Phillips that I've listened to. It's good. I have since listened to a few more but was disappointed by their similarity. So if this is your first Susan Phillips you'll likely enjoy it.

    Story
    "Very good, as usual."

    I truly enjoy Susan Elizabeth Phillips books. All her famale characters are great, and Matchmaker Annabelle, the heroine in this book, is one of her best. The male characters are also very interesting and likeable. This book takes up where this Heat of Mine and Kevin Tucker leaves you. Now you read about Kevin's agent, "The Shark" (Heath Campion) and Annabelle. The dialog between Heath and the little girl (she calls Heath "Prince") is hilarious.
    Anna Phillips does her usual fine job. A credit well used!

    "story better than narrator"

    I liked the story, it was amusing, the characters were engaging. It's light, breezy and fun. I got it because I wanted something light and the ratings were all so good. But I had a couple of problems with story in general and the audio book in particular.
    1. I don't care for sports, especially American football. But to her credit, the author made these characters likeable, so that was a pleasant surprise, still there was too much sports in this book for me.
    2. I think the book might have done with an edit to tighten it up - awfully long for a romance.
    3. I really did not like the narrator. As another reviewer said, she doesn't do men's voices well. Her women's character voices, especially Annabelle were quite good. But her general narration was flat and I wish she would do narration with the same spark she did Annabelle. As far as men's voices, we know the narrator is a woman, she's not going to sound like a man - by forcing her voice so low, the men are hard to listen to.

    "First read by Susan Phillips."

    When I purchased this book it was on sale and I didn't realize it was a series. After listening to it I became a Phillips fan and starting to listen to her other books. She has a way of making her characters real.

    "Happy romance"

    I read Susan Elizabeth Phillips Chicago Stars series a while ago in Japanese and got hooked. Since then I've devoured most of her books. I still think her Chicago Stars series books are one of the most funny, heart-warming, character driven contemporary romance. I read mostly regency romances but Nora Roberts, SEP and Suzanne Brockmann are exception.

    As with her other books (unfortunately not the recent ones) this book has wonderful witty dialogue, charming and funny characters that will take you away from your daily woes... While reading this book I can pretend I'm with the handsome and buff as well as smart and funny Chicago Stars' gorgeous menfolk!

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read "happy romances!"

    "Spot on!"

    I absolutely loved this book. It takes you on a fantastic roller coaster of emotions and you can't help but feel attached to the characters. This was my first SEP book, but will be reading more, I'm hooked!

    "GREAT"

    This was my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book and it made me a fan! Annabel is a funny, quirky leading lady and I was cheering her on through the whole book. I loved it so much I now have a huge wish list for all of Ms Phillips books!!!

    "Still laughing..."

    I have listened to three SEP books and this is still my favorite, likely because Annabelle is my favorite heroine. She's funny, witty and irreverent. The narrator seems to key into her really well.

    There are some fall-down funny moments in this book that you will want to hear again and again.

    I also love the little "bonus" romances in SEP's books. Once you've read some of her stuff you will know what I mean.

    "Entertaining, but kind of meh."

    I've listened to a couple other books about this family/ group of friends, and I guess I'm growing tired of it. It's a cute listen, but super predicable.
