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 am a middle school reading teacher who loves to show students the wonder and joy of reading.
Typically wonderful! I love these books for pure enjoyment. I wish it didn't take her so long to write each book. I would like a new one each month!
I really enjoyed reading this book. So many characters from previous stories. Susan Elizabeth Phillips is great, she never dissapoints me. I can't wait for her next book!!!
I was worried about whether I would like the new reader who replaces the late Anna Fields. Anna/Kate had such a remarkable voice and had read so many of Ms. Phillips books. I wasn't sure I would adjust to a new voice.
I needn't have been concerned. Shannon Cochran is excellent and remarkable in her own way. I'm glad her voice is low pitched as Anna's was. I don't think I could stand hearing a high-pitched voice for these books. Ms Cochran is amazing with her range of voices & accents. She nails the Texas twang pretty darned good if this old Texan may say so.
And the story itself is fine as wine. It took me a bit to get past how everyone was so mean to Meg and what a pity party she had going. However, it was fun to watch her come out it and grow into the woman she needed to be. I was more iffy about Ted Beaudine. He comes across as a cruel person for awhile. But all is well at the end. I thought this book was better than "Natural Born Charmer". I just didn't care for Blue Baily there. To each his/her own, I guess.
Where SEP comes up with her ideas for a story line are beyond me and that is why I personally LOVE THEM. And the author's tongue-in-cheek runs satisfyingly high in this novel. Expect to laugh, snicker, guffaw, and even cackle through out the listen. The romance builds up in a unique and satisfying development. The heroine is spunky but not smug. No excuses are made for her flaws; real life flaws that we can all relate to --- so you can't help but champion the heroine's endeavor to overcome.
Adding her own distinct mark, Shannon Cochran fills in beautifully for the dearly missed Anna Fields. In my humble opinion, should now and forever be THE voice of an SEP audio production. Her voice is natural and she is very adept of giving each character their own unique tone. She conveys ALL the emotions, especially humor with excellent timing.
It was a great story that kept me entertained through the whole book, Just never new what to expect. I could not turn off my ipod , Loved how the woman in the story was consistently unsettling the man and vice versa. I would recommend it to anyone!!!
I thought this book was great! I didn't want it to end! Please SEP write faster! I love your books!
LOVED IT.. And expected nothing less.. She's an amazing author and one who always lives up to your expectations!! I've read everything of hers, so I enjoyed how some of my favorite characters came together.. Hope the next one comes out a lot sooner than this one took. I'm hooked.. again!
I am a huge fan of romances and happy endings. I like books that take me away from everyday life and into the land of romance, some adventure and of course happy endings.
This author never lets me down. I love all of her books. I think with this book she was able to capture some of the humor she lost in the last few books that she has written.
This book had me scrambling to reread some of her earlier books and I enjoyed them as much as I did the first time around.
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.
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.
