Product Description

Review

Susan Elizabeth Phillips writes absolutely splendid women’s fiction. Her books are infused with wit, heart, insight and intelligence. They delight and entertain on every level. A book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips is always a sparkling tonic for the senses. (Jayne Ann Krentz)

...Susan Elizabeth Phillips at her very best. Romantic, funny, sexy, and poignant.... If you’re down or busy or distracted, I have the cure: Call Me Irresistible is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I loved this book. (Kristin Hannah) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

R.S.V.P. to the most riotous wedding of the year!

Lucy Jorik’s the daughter of a former U.S. president.
Meg Koranda’s the offspring of legends.
One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas.
The other is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.

Meg knows breaking up her best friend’s wedding is the right thing to do, but no one else agrees. Faster than Lucy can say “I don’t,” Meg’s the most hated woman in town—and stuck there with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. Broke, stranded, without her famous parents watching her back, Meg believes she can survive by her own wits. After all, what’s the worst that can happen? She’ll lose her heart to Mr. Irresistible?

Not likely. Not likely at all.

Miss Phillips never fails to captivate her reader from the first few pages of any of her novels and this one is no exception. I could not put this down once I started and actually finished the book in a day and a quarter. Having read all her previous books which included many of the characters in 'Irrisistible' and told their own stories: I was drawn into the storyline needing to see the outcome of these wonderfully complex and larger than life characters especially Ted who I first read about in 'Fancy Pants' and Meg who was originally in 'Glitter Baby'.
I love the fact that Ms Philllips' plots are not easy to work out from the start and she takes her readers on an emotional roller coaster of a ride in which she so cleverly brings tears one minute then out load laughs the next and all entwined with great drama and original story lines.
I cannot recommend this writers' work strongly enough. Yes it is romance but of the highest quality. She has made me laugh cry and suffer in suspence and fear for the characters she has so lovenly created. Cannot wait for the next book!

I have read all SEP-books, and even re-read most of them. This is not a book that I will read again though. Although a pleasant story, the characters were too one-dimensional in my opinion. And too much semi-royalty, in the shape of mega-rich or mega-influential parents such as the mother of the bride (ex-president of the US), the parents of the heroine Meg (famous actors) and the parents of the hero (dad famous golfer, mum famous tv talk show). Yes, these parents were all beloved characters in previous books, but all brought together in one book is too much and even became annoying.
The fact that Megs parents are famous/rich, never made her being destitute really believable, contrary too heroines in previous SEP-books.
But one big pre; reading about all these characters from previous books, made me re-read their stories again (Lady be Good, Fancy Pants, First Lady). Great stories, better than this one! Maybe because they also had other lovestory's in it, besides the love story of the main characters.

Ok! i should have known that i was going to be disappointed when i had such high expectations to read this book!
When the book arrived at my door, i thought YES! its finally here and i can get cracker lacking in reading it. I have always loved reading Susan Elizabeth Phillips books especially the chicago star series, so it was highly unlikely that i be disappointed with her new one right..? Wrong!
i thought the character of Ted and other side characters were very one dimentional. They were too plain and boring. The plot line dragged trimendiously and became unexciting in some aspects of the plot. Also for the first time ever i could actually put the book down without the urge to pick it up. It was like the author was just writing to fill the pages. I execpted there to be more growth in the storyline before anything happened between the two main leads.
However, having said that i did enjoy reading about Meg and able to explore her mind throughtout the book. There were times when the book evoked emotion in me but this remained low.
Overall, if you are a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips then i would say read this however i would recommened another one of her books of you aren't.

What a fantastic book!! I have long been a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, she is my favourite author, by a long way. Having said that, I was a unsure whether I was going to enjoy this one as much as some of her classics. I had read the first chapter on her website and was concerned that I would find Ted too bland, Meg too flaky and I couldn't figure out what I was going to think about Lucy jilting him at the alter. I should have had more faith!! This was fantastic. I laughed out loud (repeatedly), I got sentimental at parts, angry at others, and I am even ashamed to admit I had butterflies in my stomach listening to the last couple of hours after Meg left town. It was also great to catch up with characters from some of SEP's previous works. The only people missing from the guest list at the wedding were the Chicago Stars!

As any fans of the audio versions of SEP's books will know, the author and publishers had an immensely difficult task in replacing the late, great Anna Fields / Kate Fleming as narrator. She was fantastic, and was most definitely 'the voice' of SEP. While Julia Gibson did a reasonable job with Glitter Baby and What I did For Love, she never quite captured the essence of the books in the same way her predecessor had. I think though, we can say the search for the new voice is over. Shannon Cochran was brilliant, I really loved listening to her, and it actually 'felt' like I was listening to a Susan Elizabeth Phillips book. Maybe its because (in my opinion at least) her voice sounds a little like SEP's own voice, that in parts it felt like it was the author herself that was narrating the story.

I totally recommend this book (either printed or audio) to anyone who wants a funny, entertaining, satisfying romance. I can't wait for Lucy's story and am desperately hoping we don't have another 2 year wait!!
