What the Critics Say

"Generously seasoned with plenty of tart humor and snappy dialogue, and graced with a delightfully amusing pair of protagonists trying desperately not to fall in love, Natural Born Charmer is simply irresistible." (Booklist)

    "Another CHARMER from SEP!"

    Although I read one or two of the Chicago Stars series I have really enjoyed the rest of the series on Audible and am glad I have them to go back to listen to when I want a fun, easy listen. The characters are flawed and have issues and that makes them more realistic. As in all of SEP books, there is fun and snappy dialog and good sexual chemistry. The sex scenes are steamy and fun without being unnecessarily graphic like a lot of authors are doing today. As I have noted with some other SEP books, there is a primary couple, but also a love story for a secondary couple. I think April Fields does a GREAT job narrating and changing voices. She even does a fine job singing a little in this one!

    "Very Entertaining"

    If you liked Match Me If You Can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, you'll love Natural Born Charmer! The characters were believable and down-to-earth, and the intertwining storylines kept me entertained. It was a quick listen-I just didn't want to turn it off! Very good narration and very good author. I thought this book was superb and would love to have a sequel to follow up on the lives of the characters!

    "Readers warning: You'll get sucked in.."

    First of all that beaver thing, and calling Blue(!) 'The Beave'... it was just wrong.
    That being said: I don't know what she does or how she does it, but SEP does it well. I just kept nodding off, lulled to sleep by the narrator's voice, and then waking up and rewinding the thing so I wouldn't miss one bit of the story.. A very weird experience. The story just felt like it was reaaally long, and slooow in it's development, but it didn't seem to bother me(?!)
    You just get sucked into the SEP world and don't want to leave.
    And it totally got me hooked on her Chicago Stars series.. That's some weird talent, ms Phillips..
    (The narrator did lull me to sleep, but that was because her voice was very pleasant. In all honesty I think she did a great job!)

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "Really enjoyed this book!"

    I thoroughly enjoy this author's writing. They're not deep thinking, heavy subject matter books, but pure enjoyment. I love the banter between Blue & Dean -- the reader is very good and has good tone changes for each character. I found myself smiling throughout. There are definitely some cheesy lines, but found myself happy overall during my long commute to work, so that's an excellent feat! Highly recommend this as well as the one before this, Match Me If You Can.

    "Laught Out Loud Funny, Fantastic Narration!!"

    I enjoyed this book. I LOVED the narrator and may well purchase other books just because she is reading them! She does 5 characters and each has their own "voice". This is a great listen when you are in the mood for somthing funny and light, may times I caught myself laughting out loud! It is also appropriate for young teens but with the caution of some mild sex scenes, but nothing that they haven't heard about from their friends yet I am sure! Enjoy!!

    "Cute"

    This is a cute story that is fun and romantic. The narrorator was good and the characters were interesting. I like how Susan Elizabeth Phillips ties the "Chicago Stars" stories together.

    "Typical SEP"

    Can't say I've ever read an SEP novel that I didn't like. I thought her last two works (Ain't She Sweet and Match Me if You Can) fell a little short of her earlier stories - but this one is standard fair that will leave you feeling upbeat, entertained and satisfied. A fun, quick listen/read.

    Knowledge is knowing the way. Wisdom is looking for an alternative, more interesting road to get there. Audiobooks are that road.

    "Pleasantly Surprised"

    I didnt really expect to enjoy this book quite so much. I knew it was chicklit when I decided to listen to it. I used it as a filler between heavier books. It was a great story!! Very light..sort of Sex and the Cityish. A love story between a hunky football player and a cinderella type girl who hit it off. Lots of bumps in the road and interesting eclectic surrounding characters to add substance to the story. I actualy found myself laughing out loud over and over.

    As for the narrator...BRAVO!! One of the best narrations I have listened to. A superb job of acting as well as reading.

    So it's not always necessary to read a heavy book to enjoy it. A lesson learned.

    "Enjoyable & Light entertainment"

    There isn't a lot of substance to this book, but it's perfect for an easy & enjoyable listen. It made me laugh and the narrator added to the fun with her various styles, especially with the dry humour in the book.

    A good, light, funny listen.

    "Just brilliant"

    I love all SEP's books - but this is my favourite so far. Wish all her books were available in audio on this site.
