One night, Molly's penchant for running into trouble runs her right into Kevin himself, turning her world upside down. Heartbreak follows, and just when she's certain things can't get worse, Kevin forces his way back into her life. She and Kevin battle their attraction while trying to cope with an aging sexpot actress and a pair of teenage newlyweds.
Their careers and lives are in crisis, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Sometimes falling in love hurts; sometimes it makes you mad as hell. And sometimes, if you're very lucky, it can heal in a most special and unexpected way.

"Susan Elizabeth Phillips writes a story that wraps around your heart and doesn't let go." (Oakland Press)
I loved this book. Molly is quirky, awkward, and simply irresistible. The narrator does a fantastic job reading this book.
Yet another fantastic SEP book! I cannot get enough of her books!! Great narrator, and I love the fact that you know the family from other books!!
This is Molly's story (first introduced in It Had to Be You.) Just like the last story I was laughing out loud. There were a few parts that could have been better written (like the romance between Kevin's real mother Lillian and Burt) but I still enjoyed it. Just love the narration by Anna Fields.
The 5th installment in the SEP's Chicago Stars is as heart-achingly sweet as the previous four books. Unlike so many romance novelists, SEP doesn't let her characters take an easy or overly-corny path to true love. In this book, good girl Molly Somerville finally gets, or perhaps snaps up, the chance to do something about her long time crush on bad boy Kevin Tucker. But their relationship ultimately reveals that Molly is more of a bad girl than her family ever realized and Kevin Tucker's past as a preacher's kid has made him more of a good guy than his bad boy antics would lead one to believe. It makes him the perfect guy for Molly, not because opposites attract but because her insecurities as an unloved kid means she needs someone who can prove their love to her.
Like pretty much all of the other books in this series, This Heart of Mine also features a sub-plot love story that, while less detailed, is just as important to the plot. Featuring a Hollywood actress and well-known painter, this secondary love story is as over dramatic and explosive as you'd expect.
But perhaps the best part of this book is the Daphne the Bunny excerpts from Molly's children's books. The voices Anna Fields does for the various characters are delightful. And the inclusion of these sections will satisfy your inner writer.
I haven't read the print version, but I have listened to the audio at least a dozen times, I absolutely love Anna Fields reading and SEP's humor.
This book is similar to Natural Born Charmer. It has the same author, narrator and is part of the same series.
Anna Fields brought this book to life. I could almost feel the characters roll their eyes, that's how good she was.
Anna Fields did a great job narrating, loved her change in accents.
When Molly put the salmon in the lake to change the guys mind about buying the Bed & Breakfast.
The moment that Kevin decided that Molly meant more to him than football.
I could not stop listening.
This book had a great story line and I really loved listening!
I REALLY LIKE THIS SERIES OF STORIES ABOUT THE CHICAGO STAR FOOTBALL TEAM PLAYERS AND THERE LOVE LIVES. IM SAD, I LAUGH OUT LOUD. SOME STEAMY LOVE SCENES, AND WHO DOESNT LIKE A BOOK WITH A HAPPY ENDING. I RECOMMEND THIS SERIES.
I love all of the Susan Elizabeth Phillips books and I love the reading by Anna Fields.
Story line great, reader superb, characters addictive. It is a page turner that you don't want to put down.
Had read others in the series and was really wanting to read about how Molly fits in.
Learning the depth of the characters makes them feel a part of your real life.
The narrator's performance is flawless as always. She does the voices great and adds so much to each character.
I feel saddened by our loss, as readers, of Kate Fleming. She is already dearly missed.
This was my very first Susan Elizabeth Phillips read. I was listening at work, and actually voluntered for overtime because I didn't want to stop. SEP is so talented, she gets me. As long as she writes, I will continue to read and or listen. Molly and Kevin had such a unique beginning and an overall touching and witty connection.
