My Wishlist: Susan Elizabeth Phillips Edition

Filed in My Wishlist , The Sexy Lover Posted on February 17, 2011 @ 7:00 am 8 comments
Hey all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Welcome to another edition of my wish list segment. For all lovers of romance this one is for you… Whether you happily involved or single… I hope these book choices will be enjoyed by you all.

Since its still the month of love I decided to pick a few contemporary romances I am hoping to get and I also look forward to seeing what you all think as well.

Now you might call me lazy but seriously to me no one does angsty contemporary romances like the one and only Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

First up is the one that hooked me the world of SEP. And ever since then I have become a huge SEP fan for life. I want to say that yes, I have both the hardcover and paperback but I just have to get this one in ebook as well. 🙂

Chicago Stars Series Book #7

ISBN-13: 978-0060734572
Available at: Amazon, B&N, More info at: Goodreads

It wasn’t every day a guy saw a headless beaver marching down the side of a road, not even in Chicago Stars quarterback Dean Robillard’s larger-than-life world. She was definitely a girl beaver because her beaver head was missing, revealing sweaty, dark hair pulled into a scraggly ponytail. He’d been praying for a little distraction from his own depressing company, so he threw open the door and stepped out onto the shoulder of the Colorado road … The unforgettable love story of a golden boy who might be losing his luster and a spirited woman who’s learned never to depend on anyone but herself.

  Never have I laughed as hard or cried as much when I first read this book. Natural Born Charmer never gets old and is one the few books I cherish and keep on my night stand. 😀

ISBN-13: 978-0061351525

Lucy Jorik is the daughter of the former President of the United States.
Meg Koranda is the offspring of legends.
One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas.
The other is not happy about it. Not happy at all….


I received this and devoured it. I couldn’t put down.. but then again, I think SEP has such an amazing writing skills that anything she writes is simply magical. She is so the queen of romantic angst and romantic comedies. 

ISBN-13: 978-0066211244

More Info at: Goodreads

Sugar Beth Carey, the one-time “wild child” of Parrish, Mississippi, returns home to face a slew of old enemies lining up to get even. Worst of all is Colin Byrne, the man whose career Sugar Beth destroyed. Now he’s a famous novelist living in Sugar Beth’s old mansion, and he’s using his writer’s imagination to figure out how to bring the town’s former princess to her knees.

Another one of SEP novels that made cry so hard yet it was just to awesome that I couldn’t stop reading until the very end. *sniff* 

After these three I am on the quest to get the previous six novels in the Chicago Stars Series

    I'm a big SEP fan and read all of her books however her last two novels disappointed me a lot. Especially CMI made me not happy because the story was unlogical, most characters were mean and the hero acted at times more like a pimp than a nice guy. I guess this book was just not for me.

    My favourite SEP books are "Match me if you can" and "Natural Born Charmer". I already reread these two books several times.

    Although her last two books disappointed me I'm still excited for the next book by SEP and hope for a new story and not the usual woman ends up in small town without any money, etc. .

    I've read a handful of SEP books but AIN'T SHE SWEET? is my favorite. I remember thinking how perfectly written it was. SEP nailed every single, multi-faceted character to perfection. I loved the Heyer quotes at the beginning of each chapter too.

    My favorite contemporary series, hands down, is Victoria Dahl's, Tumble Creek trilogy. Especially Bk 2: Start Me Up and Bk 3: Lead Me On. It has everything…humor, fun, poignancy, great lovin' and heart.

    I also love Rachel Gibson's hockey series. Simply Irresistible & Nothing But Trouble are my faves.

    I adored Match Me If You Can! It was my favorite of her's 🙂

    No, I don't think I've read any books by SEP. The one's you have on your wishlist sound good so maybe I'll pick one up in the future.

    We are sharing the same SEP reading experience! Natural Born Charmer was my first and I loved it. Call Me Irresistible was so good. Better even that I thought it possibly could be. Ain't She Sweet remains one of my favorites from SEP. You're so right–laughing and crying go hand in hand for SEP's books. Thanks for the fun (if a bit eerie for me) column.

    I've only read two of SEP's books, but I loved both of them. My favorite was Dream a Little Dream – incredibly emotional and angsty. I tend to only read one or two from any given author, but I've read all of Victoria Dahl, Lisa Kleypas, Marie Force, and Meg Benjamin's books.

    It has been ages since I read a book by SEP. After reading this post I MUST seek more out.

    I've never read any SEP books but the ones on your list sound great, I'll have to check if my library has any of her books.
