In Dallas Beaudine, gritty and handsome, lies the answer. He stops his car to help Francesca, whose life needs a tune-up, as well as her car. Stopping could lead to the biggest mistake, or best time, ever.

"Pure unadulterated fun! Riches-to-rags, then back again." (Rave Reviews)
"This delectable confection offers unadulterated entertainment. Sleek romantic comedy." (Publishers Weekly)
I am glad the negative reviews didn't keep me from purchasing this book. It is a feel good book that makes you laugh throughout the story. All of the books I've purchased by Mrs. Phillips never disappoint me.
A great early SEP. A large portion of the book is spent on back-story, but it pays off in the end. This time I listened to this, then Lady Emma's book, then Teddy's book -- a nice progression, and fun to re-visit familiar characters. Anna Fields does a fabulous job with narration, as always. Still missing her in new releases!
Depth of the characters
She's INCREDIBLE! Seriously, I'm going to start listening to books she reads rather than authors I like. Such great tone and variety and she doesn't read too slow. I get annoyed by slow readers. She's fantastic.
Great story, great narration - a fantastic "listen"
SEP's, Lady Be Good or Lisa Kleypas's Blue-Eyed Devil because of the strong male leads.
Anna Fields was the perfect person for this story and all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips's books. She is sorely missed.
Any book with a line like, "damn he like the way she drove a car" is a book for me.
This is another great book by SUsan Elizabeth Phillips. I have listened to all of SEP's Chicago Stars books. Nobody's Baby But Mine has been my favorite so far, but this book is as good or better. As always I also enjoyed listening to Anna Fields.
This book has it all. Love, laughter, and tears
Not one of SEP's books have disappointed me yet, especially with Anna Fields narrating--she makes a book even better (missed her reading in What I Did For Love). I am hoping with SEP's new book coming out in January, the narrator is just as good as Anna Fields. SEP can really write--I found myself laughing out loud while listening more than one time; good romance scenes as well.
I love these characters in this book. Worlds apart and so different but you can relate to all of them. This book is written so that you feel you really know these characters and know exactly what all of their surroundings look like without being too bogged down in too much detail. This book could have gone on another few hours and I would have gladly kept listening. Very funny!
This book is extremely long winded...going into every possible subplot and previous parentage. We learn the entire history not only of the main characters but of Francesca Days Mother and grandmother in great detail....It is not as funny or well written as her other books. It is great disappointment.,. Not worth reading.
I have enjoyed all of the other SEP audiobooks I have "read," but the characters in this one are unlikeable and the story is silly. The worst part is that this one cost two credits, which I noticed afterward.
