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.

All business but contemporary fun!
I absolutely loved Meg's discovery of herself, in a true SEP fashion of a rich girl becoming broke and developing her self esteem. Her spirit is bright, her heart in the right place and her sassiness the perfect balance between honesty and bravado. Her love for Teddy is making her an even better person which is wonderful to experience with her.
I cried when Meg told Teddy how she felt about him. Her words (spoiler alert) "you make my heart sing" squeezed my heart and made me feel every bit of her lover for him.
While this story is classic SEP, the loss of the wonderful Anna Fields hits home. Don't get me wrong, Shannon Cochran is very good. But when you're used to perfection, even very good is disappointing.
i would and i have already. The characters are as always easy to relate with. The story is so cute and funny.
I loved the journey Meg took finding herself and proving to herself that she was a capable person. I loved how Meg and Teddy interacted. I loved how it was real life, with the bickering and the way that love just happens.
She had a lot of feeling in her words not just reading off a page.
Don't go just by reveiws in your decision to listen. The reviews of some almost made me skip this amazing book
Former Waitress, Chargeback clerk, Clown, Florist owner, Clergy. Love series, humor, twists, history, mysteries, not into witches/bondage.
Makes you smile
No, a good stop and starter.
Story line keep you entertained and involved.
Say something about yourself!
As I say ??? I usually wait for a little while before I write a review. Every time I notice I have not written a review on this book (I know there are plenty) I have to go to the summary to remind me what it was about.
I didn???t care for any of the characters and won???t purchase any more of the Wynett, TX books. I don't want to know anymore about any of them.
She's back to the writing style we all know and love. Love the characters the story-line, the flow. This is not a five star book- I only give five stars to book I have listened to more than once.
NOTE- I have listened to SEP's Natural Born Charmer and "Match Me..." no fewer than
6 time each. Don't be afraid to down load Call me Irresistible if you've listened to any of SEP's early works!
I've enjoyed Phillips' past novels very much, mostly the way she brings two opposites together gradually and seamlessly. Not in this book. I found it choppy and inconsistent - frustrating. Lots of loose ends, wondering why and how the characters apparently changed their minds/lives from page to page without any development. It made the ending trite and unbelievable. Not one of Phillips' good efforts. Even the good performance couldn't make this book good for me.
This book was very enjoyable just like all the other SEF books I've read so far. If you want a great story about sexy Texas men with some erotic vibe to it, then this book is for you cause you're like me lol. If not, try Diana Palmer's 'Lawman', 'Dangerous', 'Heartless', 'Merciless' or Lisa Kleypas' 'Blue-eyed devil' or 'Smooth Talking Stranger' :D
Meg, the main character is delightfully offbeat. Dialogue is witty, setting is unique, themes are contemporary, and erotic scenes are well-written. Shannon Cochran really brings the story to life with her characterizations of the nasty Texas women that Meg has to cope with after her BFF leaves the town's mayor at the altar. Length is just right for the plot. No dead spots...listeners won't need to fast forward.
I enjoyed Shannon Cochran's various Texas accents. Susan Phillips' cast of characters were entertaining. If you liked the TV show Dallas, you'll like this. Won't change your life, but won't bring you down while you're laying by the pool.
