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 always like S.E.P but this one wasn't quite as fun as some of her others, this one was a bit too sinister at times. Mostly well written and funny and fun but occasionally not so much. would still recommned it and most likely listen to it again or get the book and read it myself this time.
If you like any of the charcaters in Texas from other books, like "Lady be Good", then do not listen to this book. Nothing is worse than having favorite charcters trade their charm for hypocrisy. This is a story about an entire town forcing a woman into an undesired sexual encounter with a snake of man, just for financial security...wait, isn't that basically pimping a woman out? How could SEP made such a severe misjudgement?
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.
I don't know.. maybe because I waited forever for this book to come out and that made my expectations too high?? Personally feel it is not as good as some of her others and I love SEP's books. I'll have to listen to it again, I guess. But hope Lucy's story is better.
I couldn't remember the detailed histories of the repeat characters but loved it anyway. It is always a please to read these author.
This was a great book. I listened to it in one weekend...I didn't want to put down my iPod! Better (to me!) than the last few SEP books.
She (SEP) did again, another good book I would give the book 5+ stars if I could. Many funny spots in the book and I loved the story and it was realistic--sexy scenes were great also.
The only thing that would have made it better is to have Anna Fields reading it (which can't happen) or someone that gives that "oomph" that Anna did. Shannon Cochran did a pretty good job (I give her a 3+), but I did not get that feel I wanted to hear when you listen to Anna. I kept hearing someone with a northern dialect trying to portray a southerner and it was not all that convincing, but she still got her funny jabs in when required. While I think Anna was a northerner (from Seattle--right?), she got that southern accent down perfect. I suggest to whoever makes the decision to try Therese Plummer or Anne Dawe next time. I wonder if anyone from the Audible reads the ratings.
Despite my critique of Ms. Cochran's reading, I will listen again.
I can't wait for Lucy's story. SEP, hopefully it will not be another year before you write her story. And another Chicago Stars story as well.
I think SEP is a genius. Heard this as an audiobook and will definitely be buying a copy of this book. The performer - Shannon Cochran is brilliant, managing to do all the different voices very well and bearing in mind the ensemble scenes in this book, that's no mean feat.
The story is vintage SEP - down on her luck girl finds herself at the mercy of quite a malicious town who will do anything to humiliate her becos they blame her for destroying the life of their golden boy mayor. Girl manages to find herself, get the mayor, earn the respect of the town - it sounds so clich?d but SEP manages it brilliantly.
I stayed up till 4:30 and 2:00 in the morning on consecutive nights to hear this - it's that good. And the last couple of minutes - brilliant - one of the best endings I've ever read.
Loved the story, the characters and the narrater! I could listen over and over again!
