Publisher's Summary

R.S.V.P. to the most riotous wedding of the year....

Lucy Jorik is the daughter of a former president of the United States.

Meg Koranda is the offspring of legends.

One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas. The other is not happy about it and is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.

But even though Meg knows that breaking up her best friend's wedding is the right thing to do, no one else seems to agree. Faster than Lucy can say "I don't", Meg becomes the most hated woman in town—a town she's stuck in with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom.

Broke, stranded, and without her famous parents at her back, Meg is sure she can survive on her own wits. What's the worst that can happen? Lose her heart to the one and only Mr. Irresistible? Not likely. Not likely at all.

Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers and listeners 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.

    "I think this book is a five star book..."

    I was not sure about this book By Susan Elizabeth Philips , but you know I loved it, This was a different twist on romance it was messy and more realistic than most, I liked the small town ladies and the real life characters in this story line, I laughed and got angry at the characters and to me that is a sign the book is worth the effort to Liston to, I finished this book in two days i could not put my I pod down, Not good when you need to see clients.. I hope you try this one it is a must read in my opinion and I have allot of books in my library..

    Story
    "Pre Req's not Required."

    I have grown to love SEP books. They are fun, easy reads with strong female leads. I hadn't read Fancy Pants or the other book that followed so I was a little worried that I'd be lost. Not so. It's an easy listen, the narrator is great and SEP provides enough background info on the characters that the story is easy to follow. I loved meg's character. She is smart, strong and determined to make it on her own after her family cuts her off. Ted is just hot! I loved their chemistry and I loved the characters in this small texas town. I was sad when the story ended.

    "disappointed"

    I usually love SEP books especially on audio. I did not enjoy this one though. Anna Fields is deeply missed. Natural Born Charmer will always be my favorite be my favorite and Anna Fields was a part of that. I also enjoyed What I did for Love which had a different narrator. This was a deep disappointment for a SEP fan.

    "The title is perfect, as is the book!"

    The minute I see a new book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, I order it immediately. I don't even have to read the synopsis because I know I'm going to love it. This one is no exception. Maybe I was just starved for one of her books, but it may have been my favorite.

    There is never a dull moment in a book by SEP! They are always impossible to put down. I've read every one and several I've read twice! As I finished this "irresistable" book, I realized I had a big smile on my face. The narrator was wonderful, too. She really understood the characters and made them seem so alive to the listener.

    Please give us another book soon, Ms. Phillips!

    "Disappointing"

    I was eagerly waiting for this book to come out. Ms Phillips as been one of my favorite writers - I have read every book she has written, but I have to say that I was very disappointed. The main character seemed to be a weak copy of Blue from Natural Born Charmer with more of a victim personality. There was almost no development of Lucy, who dropped out of sight almost immediately. In past books there were multiple stories going on and each one was a mini story in its own right. A lot of the same characters were in this one, but it was almost token representation. I will listen to this once more at a later time - sometimes a re-read will bring out things that was missed, but will probably delete from my library.

    "Good story....bad narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator!!! She makes the characters sound angry all the time! The women come through as whiney and hateful in their tone!


    What other book might you compare Call Me Irresistible to and why?

    The Great Escape! Same narrator!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Shannon Cochran?

    Rebecca Lohman


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Different narrator!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    New narrator please! I have listened to many, many audio books. Few are more difficult to listen to! Takes away from the story!

    "Thoroughly Enjoyable!"

    I totally enjoy all Susan Elizabeth Phillips books! Her stories and characters are so fun, I love them! However, the narrator makes the book for me, and with the passing of Anne Fields, I thought I would never enjoy Susan's books as much as I had in the past. But I must say that Shannon Cochran did an awesome job with the narration of this book, and I enjoyed it very much! It took me some time to realize that there are other great narrators that are as enjoyable as Anne Fields, and while I miss her narration soooo much, this book is a great listen! I highly recommend it!

    "SO FUNNY!"

    Read a couple of reviews that were SO off the mark, jaw dropped. Yes, this one didn't have a zany opening, like many of hers, but it was SUCH a great listen. Listened to it for the first time on a long drive to doctor's office, and swear that people on the road passing me or driving beside me thought I was insane, I was laughing so hard. Surprised, really, that someone didn't report me as a crazy person on the road. Continued while walking dog, same thing. I'm pretty certain neighbors thought I'd lost it. SO GOOD. And can't say enough about the reader. She handled Texas Southern, UK English, no accent US English, and male sexy (and there were LOTS of sexy males) so perfectly. She came as close to Jim Dale doing Harry Potters as I've ever listened to, where she didn't really need dialogue tags, because I knew instantly from the voice who was speaking. That's truly my test.

    I've now listened to it about 8 times, mostly the others while I turned on friends and family to SEP books. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM went out and found the audio some other way, as my evil plan was to give them a taste, and let them take it from there. My father, not even a romance fan, asked me the day after he listened to part of this, to go online and find a list of SEP in order of release, and then mark the ones that were golf and football related. He's since listened to at least three, and keeps going back for more. His health is shaky right now, and listening to SEP is a respite, and, I THINK, wonderful for his health.

    "good book"

    it took me a while to decide to listen to this book. Had since it first came out. It was good.
    It did not have any one else's point of view except Meg until the very last when we had Ted's point of view
    which is different from any other Phillips book . Usualy it is the two main characters and another secondary set.
    But it was good. Nice -- I liked having all the old characters from the earlier books
