Publisher's Summary

Molly Somerville knows she has a reputation for trouble. She did give away her $15-million inheritance, but, hey, nobody's perfect. Yes, Molly's happy about almost everything...except her long-term crush on the daredevil quarterback for the Chicago Stars. That awful, gorgeous Kevin Tucker, a man who can't even remember her name!

One night, Molly's penchant for running into trouble runs her right into Kevin himself, turning her world upside down. Heartbreak follows, and just when she's certain things can't get worse, Kevin forces his way back into her life. She and Kevin battle their attraction while trying to cope with an aging sexpot actress and a pair of teenage newlyweds.

Their careers and lives are in crisis, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Sometimes falling in love hurts; sometimes it makes you mad as hell. And sometimes, if you're very lucky, it can heal in a most special and unexpected way.

    Story
    "Rape and shotgun weddings are not entertaining"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the type of story that turned me off of romance novels decades ago - rape and a forced wedding that turns into love. The concept is incredibly repulsive - even when the roles are reversed as they are in this "updated" twist on the theme. Once I saw the path that this story was taking, I stopped listening.

    "One of my favorite Stars books"

    This is my fourth listening of this book. I really enjoy the development of Nightingale Woods. And nobody read them like Anna Fields. I miss her voice.

    Time spent commuting passes by much easier listening to books. I prefer romance books but I do enjoy other books as well.

    "Fun and Touching Read"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm trying to catch up on my reviews. I actually listened to this quite a while back. I think it might be time to listen again because it's a really nice read. SEP can always be counted on to write good, fun stories and this doesn't disappoint. I probably should have been a little put off by the way it started and maybe I was a little the first time I listened, but I'm not. The way the story develops the relationship between Molly and Kevin is very real to me. Molly seems a little pathetic at first, but she quickly come into her own and she became completely relatable to me. Kevin was strong from the beginning. You could certainly understand why he would be so upset with Molly in the beginning. As the story progresses and Kevin starts to get to know Molly you will totally fall in love with him too.

    The Chicago Stars series are all wonderful books. I wish SEP would consider adding more. Although, I do understand it wouldn't be the same without Anna Fields as the narrator. Anna Fields was one of the best narrators out there. Sadly, she died in 2006 in an accident in her home during a storm.

    Any additional comments?

    Kevin & Molly come together at a true SEP fashion, under very random/ hard to believe situation that results in a terrible hardship early on. However the heart breaking experience forged a deep bond between the two that make them stick together as they try to fight the attraction to each other in the most fun, witty and charming way. Another stunning book by SEP.

    I listen to novels for distraction and entertainment and rate them on the experience, not literary merit. I prefer to read good literature.

    Story
    "Rape is not Romantic"

    I've really enjoyed SEP's books until now but do not find the act of rape to be an engaging catalyst for a romantic comedy. An unrepentant, mentally ill heroine just doesn't work for me.
    Anna Fields was teriffic as usual, but I really don't care to continue with this book.

    Story
    "Another heartachingly sweet tale in this series!"

    The 5th installment in the SEP's Chicago Stars is as heart-achingly sweet as the previous four books. Unlike so many romance novelists, SEP doesn't let her characters take an easy or overly-corny path to true love. In this book, good girl Molly Somerville finally gets, or perhaps snaps up, the chance to do something about her long time crush on bad boy Kevin Tucker. But their relationship ultimately reveals that Molly is more of a bad girl than her family ever realized and Kevin Tucker's past as a preacher's kid has made him more of a good guy than his bad boy antics would lead one to believe. It makes him the perfect guy for Molly, not because opposites attract but because her insecurities as an unloved kid means she needs someone who can prove their love to her.

    Like pretty much all of the other books in this series, This Heart of Mine also features a sub-plot love story that, while less detailed, is just as important to the plot. Featuring a Hollywood actress and well-known painter, this secondary love story is as over dramatic and explosive as you'd expect.

    But perhaps the best part of this book is the Daphne the Bunny excerpts from Molly's children's books. The voices Anna Fields does for the various characters are delightful. And the inclusion of these sections will satisfy your inner writer.

    "Absolutely my favorite SEP book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of This Heart of Mine to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but I have listened to the audio at least a dozen times, I absolutely love Anna Fields reading and SEP's humor.


    What other book might you compare This Heart of Mine to and why?

    This book is similar to Natural Born Charmer. It has the same author, narrator and is part of the same series.


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    Anna Fields brought this book to life. I could almost feel the characters roll their eyes, that's how good she was.
