"Well written, funny, sexy, and altogether satisfying." (Publishers Weekly)
"[A] lively, well-written story. Phillips combines an unexpected premise with warm, appealing characters, and overlays it all with her zingy trademark humor and well-developed sense of the ridiculous." (Library Journal)
Good read! Started slow but once it got going, I loved it. Susan Elizabeth Phillips is becoming one of my favorite authors! This one was not as good as Glitter Baby but was right up there. You would not be wasting a credit on either of these books. They are the kind that you can't wait to get back to and are sorry when they are finished.
Yes, this book made me laugh and enjoy even the family fights.
I enjoyed this book as much as Bet Me by Jennifer Cruisie.
I love her stile. She took ownership over the characters to help us see each scene.
Yes, the description of each character was so good that I felt like if I knew them.
I will look for Susan Elizabeth Phillips's books and also for the books read by Anna Fields.
Funny, Romantic, and Lovable.
Field's performance was terrific. The voices were great.
Yes, I couldn't stop.
Spunky, funny and Delightful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kenny he was such a laid back wise guy!
Anna Field's is like no other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The humor found in the characters and the narrator's way of communicating that humor was so endearing. She made the characters seem so real. The minor characters were also enjoyable and brought extra humor and romance! I laughed out loud so many times.
Ms. Field's did an amazing job with her many accents, speaking with an English accent and then geniune Texas drawls. There is definitely a difference in a southern accent and a Texas drawl and Ms. Field's nailed it! Every character came to life; you could almost visualize each one.
Definitely worth a credit. There is not an overly use of descriptive sexual encounters which gets really old after awhile (I don't mind the innuendos).
I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She's one of my favorite and I especially love the witty and fun characters she produces! I only wish I had read this book instead of listening to it. The low, southern accented voice of the hero just made me wince so much I had a hard time even liking him. And being read by a female voice, I think I'd rather she 'played it straight' and just read in a normal voice. My imagination could have taken over. Our heroine's British accent was nice enough, but it seemed that all I could do when listening was try to block out the voice and try to 'hear' the story. Does that make sense? Anyway - next time I'll look for the STAR reviews for the audible version, which can be quite different from the paper version. And unless the reader is REALLY good at voices (like the wonderful ones in THE HELP), I would suggest they just read, not try to act.
I enjoyed Lady Emma as she tried to be "Bad" even though she was good to the bone. Very cute story and as always, a great love story from SEP.
I liked the story and characters, it was funny and I couldn't stop listening to it, however she kills the males voice, and made the english accent seem like the main woman character is an old lady (just being honest). I have heard worse though, so in the end I would get it again just be prepare.
This story is warm, charming, funny and wildly romantic. Vintage SEP at her best! I highly recommend it.
This is another cute story from S.E.P. I have read all except one of her stories, and she consistently writes good romantic, humorous stories. This would not be a wasted credit.
