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.

I usually do not choose to read contemporary romance but SEP was when Diana Gabaldon recommended ‘Natural Born Charmers’ I thought I would given this author a try.
This by far was one of my favorite Chicago Stars books – the other being No Baby But Mine. I loved the 2 main characters in this book .. they have great chemistry together .. SEP makes you cry and laugh all in this one books.
Anna Field's narration is superb and her death is a great lose. There were several recording issues – lines being repeated.
I have since listen to ALL the Chicago Stars books – have enjoyed them all but they do tend to follow a similar story line.
I always rate a book by how much I miss the characters when I've finished reading it - SEP books always exceed my expectations and I miss her characters terribly at the end of a story! I LOVE how she doesn't reserve passion for "the young" - it is so refreshing! In this story I often laughed out loud - quite embarrassing when walking alone!
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
I love SEP books. Anytime I don't know what I want to listen to, I will pull up a SEP novel and listen to it, regardless of whether or not I have heard it before. The female characters are always fascinating. Molly, in this book, is no exception. I was reluctant to get this book at first because I read in the "blurbs" that Molly had given away her inheritance (which was millions) and did not know if I could tolerate someone that stupid, but as it turns out, Molly is sometimes rash but she is not stupid. This is the fifth book in the Chicago Stars series. Molly is the sister of Phoebe (featured in the series's first book , It Had to Be You). Molly writes Daphne the Bunny books and the way SEP weaves in parts of the Daphne dialog into the This Heart of Mine storyline is very clever.
This is not my typical genre but sometimes, you just need an escape... this is one of my favorites! Molly is probably favorite romantic heroines of all time. Honest, cute and sassy!! I've read/listened to several of Phillips books and this was the best of those. The narrator is top notch!
This is one of my better picks of Audible I have just started to listen to my downloads, this book for some reason has me going I really like the way the narrator reads this books with both male and female parts Job well done This book keeps you wanting to know more so off I go into my own space again to find out what happens next...
SPOILER: the heroine rapes the hero. That's how they hook up. They both KNOW it's rape and even talk about it being rape, and she says that she was just behaving "outrageously" and can he forget about it.
I still love romance but I'm going to be a lot more careful about SEP books (and I loved her before this one!)
I'm not a fan of this narrator. I'd even forgotten I'd returned another book in this series because of the narrator. I stuck it out for this one until the rape scene.
I can't believe this was ok in 2001.
This was an excellent read. The narrator was convincing in both the male and female roles. Another winner by SEP. If you haven't read the other Chicago Stars books you are missing out.
Wow!! I loved this book! There were no boring parts or dull moments. I was intrigued the entire book! I am going to download more from this author!! Exceptional book!
"A really enjoyable read"
My first book by this author but I really enjoyed it. Once I'd started reading, I couldn't put it down. The story held together really well and made my smile on more than one occasion. I didn't want it to end. It was so good that I've just downloaded another book by the same author.
"Lovely story, but male voices badly done"
Same problem as with my other purchase by the same narrator... a lovely story but I really don't like the way she does the male voices and haven't been able to finish listening to it because of this
