5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, stunning and totally absorbing 15 Oct 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thanks to the doubtful reviews I almost didn't buy this book but I am so glad that I did. Isabel is not at all like me so it was interesting to identify with such a diffent character and Ren is just sexy...I don't like their initial encounter but I'm a hardcore romantic so that doesn't count! All hang-ups are explained...the part about oral sex is because she doesn't like to lose control. If you like SEP buy it because it's high up on my list of favourites and if you've never read SEP before if you are looking for romance, laughs and men you just want to take home with you BUY THIS BOOK!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The necessity of having breathing room. 25 Sep 2003
Format:Paperback
I always enjoy Susan Elizabeth Phillips books and this is not an exception. The humour is there as well as the tolerant way she has of looking at people and places: this is probably why I like her so much i.e. her positive way of painting pictures of life without becoming too shallow. SEP's books are usually very 'American', but I thoroughly enjoyed the setting of this book in Italy. Being a European I think it's very interesting to see how American writers look at some aspects of today's Europe. All the books in this genre are essentially escapist and that's probably the main reason to why we buy and read them. And I really believe that we all need breathing room now and then; this book may be an inspiration to listen to yourself and realise it might be a good idea to - if possible - get away from it all and do something completely different for a while. The love-story is a good one: some tantalizing sex-scenes, some ups-and-downs and finally a happy ending and - as we are to understand - a continued inspired, active and imaginative sex-life between our heroine and hero. We like that!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! 20 Jan 2010
By Maria
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I almost didn't buy this because of the negative reviews but I really enjoyed it. I love the dialogue and exchanges between the two main characters; they had a sizzling energy running between them. The story line is a bit daft but I don't read SEP for hard hitting reality.
One of my favourites.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not the best SEP book 10 May 2009
By lmh
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read most of SEPs books this is a pleasant read but the characters just didn't grab me the way that most previous ones did. I think I would have enjoyed the book more if I hadn't read all the others first (The Stars books in particular had me laughing out loud by the end of the first chapter).

That said this wasn't bad but the story and characters seemed to drag - until Ren's ex turned up - the book got more humourous at this point but the fact that this was mid book and the Ren/Ben/hen typos mentioned by a previous reviewer also let it down (especially as my copy was a 2008 reissue, woud have thought the typos would have been removed).

If this was by any other author may well have got more stars but other SEP books have spoilt me being longer/funnier and Breathing Room didn't quite match up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic escapism 8 Oct 2003
By Miss LJ
Format:Paperback
I have to agree with Carina, and I haven't even read the ending yet. A great read to escape with. Beautifully descriptive with scenery food and the sex scenes! Quite light hearted which is nice as it doesn't take it's self to seriously! There are some wonderful tips hidden in this book if you are having relationship problems!
The only negative thing I can say about this book is the typos! Ren - the attractive actor in the love story has he's name spelt differently many times and it can be a bit confusing! Especially when one chapter starts off with a romantic scene and Isabel is lying on a table with Ben?! Where did he come from?!
But all in all a great easy read but it is quite a girly book!

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice coffee table read 23 Sep 2013
By Tanu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is quite humorous, full of sarcastic retorts !! A definite read, however the ending is not as impressive as expected and hence I chose to give it 4 stars! otherwise this one for sure deserved a 5 star (first 3/4 part)
