Ever since she was a teenager, children's book author Molly Somerville has been infatuated with handsome Kevin Tucker, quarterback for her sister's Chicago Stars football team. Unfortunately, Kevin doesn't know she's alive until one fateful weekend when they're marooned together at the family vacation cabin. When Molly gets carried away by her creative imagination and compromises Kevin, the results are disastrous and before the dust settles, Kevin's in trouble with his boss, Molly's in deep trouble with her emotions and both of them are in danger of losing their hearts. Their journey to a happy ending is dicey, at best, and even if they can get past their outrageous and painful beginning, whether these two can lower their guards and let the other into their equally wary hearts, is questionable.
Bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips makes her hardcover debut with This Heart of Mine, a wonderful contemporary tale that features two familiar faces from prior novels as the hero and heroine. The characters are complicated, with difficult pasts that have shaped the adults they now are, and Phillips uses a deft touch in sketching their personal growth as they're tested with tragedy and bound together with love and a healthy dose of humour. As always, Phillips brings her delightful wit and a warm family setting to this novel that is sure to captivate readers. --Lois Faye Dyer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Funny, sexy, wonderful - and hilarious! If you can read Susan Elizabeth Phillips without laughing out loud, check for a pulse! (Elizabeth Lowell)

Molly, the main character, actually the sister of Phoebe from It Had To Be You, goes through infatuation, anger and fear to get to the man she loves. Ever had your heart broken so badly you couldn't get out of bed in the morning? So does Molly. And she stays in bed until Kevin comes to get her for some well-deserved R&R. Of course, he also happens to be the one who actually caused her hear to break, so...
Molly is no push-over, even though she has inherited from her sister the weird habit of dragging her little mutt around everywhere she goes.
The dialogue is a killer and sets this novel apart from any other romantic novel stuff. I found myself laughing out loud at three a.m. with this book. Very good book if you need to relax and feel good!
However, after that ~thing~, the book did get better and was, in parts, actually enjoyable but that ~thing~ means it cannot rise above 2* for me. Sadly I lost all respect for Molly after the ~thing~ and I definitely didn't feel any empathy for her and her situation.
Finally, please please please can someone tell me whether there is a way to tell whether a SEP is going to be an amazing 5* read or an absolutely infuriating disappointment? Because the way I see it, reading this series is like a rollercoaster.
Just in Heaven, Texas before, this time I, again find most interesting the romance between the celebrities; Kevin's mother and famous artist.
This one is not a real disappointment but, consider your time and preferences as well as money before ordering it.
