Publisher's Summary

It seems like an easy assignment for an assertive but sweet woman like Gracie Snow: track down her friend, Bobby Denton, a famous ex-jock, and bring him to Heaven (Texas, that is) to shoot a movie. How could he refuse a glamorous offer like that?

Easy, if you've got a big ego, a 1957 T-Bird, and prefer cruising the highways for girls. Still, Bobby can't get Gracie, an angel, out of his mind. Why not head to Heaven, raise a little hell, and let Gracie look out for the consequences?

Another winner

I just can't get enough of SEP. Although the sory ends predictably, I couldn't wait to get there.

So Fun and Sweet

I waited quite awhile to purchase this book because I didn't like the sample and I really didn't expect to enjoy. Maybe because I am from the same region I really enjoyed this story. I have listened to it several times and recommend it. I just wish the narrator would find out how Texans say pecans.

Picks up in the 2nd half

I've read all SEP books and LOVE this reader. After you get past the ugly duckling aspect and fact that the hero at one point even refers to the heroine as a mercy f**k, the heroine becomes more interesting and the story becomes very enjoyable.

Good read, reminiscent plot

Good read, don’t want to put it down, but plot reminiscent of other Phillips books.

Protagonist is a washed up pro quarterback Bobby Denton looking for a new career. (not unlike Cal Bonner in Nobody's Baby But Mine) who falls in love with a woman who is not his type on a car trip. (Not unlike Natural Born Charmer).He has an attractive single mother Sue (Not unlike Natural Born Charmer). Sue ends up falling for the town’s most hated person. (Aint she sweet is centered on a similar character.)

Even with the recycled plot, the book was worth the listen, Anna Fields is a narrator at home in contemporary romance as non fiction.

Fooled by the other reviews!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who like relatively plotless soft porn writing. This book started out ok but then degenerated into various sexual scenes separated by short bursts of plot.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Awesome

Catherine Anderson gives one of the best stories to read. This is a funny story and had me laughing out loud. The entire series is hilarious but this is one of my favorites. Thank you, Ms. Anderson

That Texas Twang

I did enjoy the book very much, but being a Texan it kills me how the outside world portrays our speech pattern...Hollywood is living proof of stereo-typing Texans...but this book was very good and I didn't mind the "accent" attempt ;)
