Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast.
Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her but reveals nothing about himself. As the hot summer days unfold amid scented breezes and sudden storms, she'll encounter a passion that could change her life forever.
In this dazzling follow-up to her New York Times best seller, Call Me Irresistible, Susan Elizabeth Phillips tells the funny, touching, enchanting story of a young woman searching for her destiny...and of a damaged man who doesn't believe in second chances.

Another well executed story with all the expected SEP charm. Not only would I listen to it again, I already have, several times. Any fan of her series will definitely enjoy this new addition.
Panda, except fpr his name. He was strong, lovable, and everything you'd expect.
A few times her character accents warbled, but generally I like her.
Yes, but it was too long. I had to break it up.
LoveSEP books..any narrated by Anna Fields....I own and listen to them all regularly.This new one is really awful,,not sure if I don't like the story, narrator, but I am sad it was written by my favorite writer. I think her genious died with poor Anna. So sad.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
SEP never disappoints! I was hesitant because I was so used to Anna fields narration of her books but Shannon was excellent.
everything and putting a romance for Lucy that is almost like the way her adopted parents met.
laugh and not knowing how everything was going to turn out. Loved it
absolutely, this story had many different plots to it and I just love Panda.
The banter between Lucy and Panda
Yes, very much
I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips writing style. Can't wait for another book.
(spoiler) I loved when Lucy told panda she was pregnant and then hung up on him
I have not, but she does a great job
The great book now a great moive
Character ,characters is what makes books great and this book is full of great characters. I have listened to or read all of Susan's other books and Lucy is my favorite female from her books panda is close to the top ( I still love dallie beauine)
What a great read
This is the story picks up just as Lucy Jorik decided to run out on her wedding and jump on the back of a beat-up motorcycle to embark on The Great Escape. The Great Escape take her to Great Lakes island where she hopes to find direction for her life and where she meets a dark brooding man name Panda with a mysterious past.
The book was not as fun as Call Me Irresistible but since I was listening to it in the car – it entertained me. What struck me was I felt like I already read many of these story lines in other SEP books; such as going to the Great Lakes in Michigan (This Heart of Mine), Mike and Brie we dislike us theme (Natural Born Charmer), Temple – the overzealous fitness guru ( Match Me if You Can).
The one redeeming factor was that Shannon Cochran narrated this books and I enjoyed almost as much as I did Call Me Irresistible.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is my go to for fun. Harry Potter - just because. Loved the Magic of Tidying Up and Shakespeare
This is a perfect summer read. Lucy escapes the alter on the back of his motorcycle. All that togetherness leads to some steamy nights. Lucy is not ready to return to her "real" life and heads to a summer vacation community. There she meets new friends, all colorful characters fully developed by Ms. Phillips. But the crux of this novel is the heat between Panda and Lucy. Can the former first lady's daughter capture the heart of one damaged, former cop and soldier?
Definitely worth finding out for yourself.
Narration is good.
Having been a fan of Anna Fields, I was deeply saddened to learn of her death. Shannon Cochran has a tough act to follow but does an admirable job.
One of my top favorite audiobooks. I have listened to it twice.
When Lucy was Viper at the beach house when Panda showed up.
When Bree found Toby and told him how much she cared for him.
This a such a great continuation Mr. Irresistible. You got to find out what really happened to Lucy.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
I love most (but not all) of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' novels. Her characters are well written and the dialog is witty.
What I liked about this one is that it is taking place at the same time as Meg and Ted's story, though the only interactions are the ones described in Call Me Irrisitable. Lucy and Panda's story is so different, and I have to admit that I lost sleep over it (as with any good book). The settings and secondary characters are also compelling. I also like it that SEP usually has a secondary story going on in the background that intersects, but does not interfere with the "main event". I liked those characters and the conflict in that secondary background plot.
The narration was smooth and the differentiation between characters was evident in the reading. Overall, I enjoyed this one and will listen to it again.
