Publisher's Summary

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

Lucy Jorik is the daughter of a 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 and is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache. 

But even though Meg knows that breaking up her best friend's wedding is the right thing to do, no one else seems to agree. Faster than Lucy can say "I don't", Meg becomes the most hated woman in town - a town she's stuck in with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. 

Broke, stranded, and without her famous parents at her back, Meg is sure she can survive on her own wits. What's the worst that can happen? Lose her heart to the one and only Mr. Irresistible? Not likely. Not likely at all. 

Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers and listeners have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy", the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy", the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now - along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.

SEP is Back In The Game!! Loved It!

I can't tell you how mad I was with the length of time that we had to wait for a new SEP book. I was completely filled with righteous indignation and was all prepared to scream long and loud if the book was not worth the wait or if a sub-standard narrator had been selected...but oh was that NOT a problem.

I loved this book...and here comes a shocker...I LOVED THE NARRATOR!! I didn't think an SEP audio experience would ever be the same after Anna and I still miss her narrations dearly, but Shannon Cochran who holds her own. And is a reader more than capable of allowing the listener to experience the tale. I hope she is the narrator for the next book. I will definitely be looking for more of her work.

Typically, SEP usually gives us the primary couple's story and then there is a secondary couple...that was missing from this book...and I'm glad...because I wanna know what Lucy was up to...and I want ALL of the details.

I did love the individual characters in the town...but even more so that the town itself took on the role of one of the main characters in the book and not just a setting. There were several characters from previous SEP books that we were able to catch up with...the only one that came off a little different to me was Kenny; I'm not certain what happen there he was a little too "grown up" for me.

There is not much I can say about this book that I didn't like...but SEP be warned...don't make us wait this long again! :)

Disappointing

I was eagerly waiting for this book to come out. Ms Phillips as been one of my favorite writers - I have read every book she has written, but I have to say that I was very disappointed. The main character seemed to be a weak copy of Blue from Natural Born Charmer with more of a victim personality. There was almost no development of Lucy, who dropped out of sight almost immediately. In past books there were multiple stories going on and each one was a mini story in its own right. A lot of the same characters were in this one, but it was almost token representation. I will listen to this once more at a later time - sometimes a re-read will bring out things that was missed, but will probably delete from my library.

Strike three

I have enjoyed so many SEP books, especially It Had To Be You, Heaven Texas and Natural Born Charmer -- they are full of wonderful characters, crazy situations and the funniest one-liners ever! I laugh just thinking about them.

What I did for Love and Glitter Baby weren't even in the same league.

Still, like Charlie Brown, I fell for the trick again hoping the last two were just aberrations. I???m just so sad. I don???t have anything good to say about this book,,,, not the characters, not the story, nada.

It???s a third strike, though

I think this book is a five star book...

I was not sure about this book By Susan Elizabeth Philips , but you know I loved it, This was a different twist on romance it was messy and more realistic than most, I liked the small town ladies and the real life characters in this story line, I laughed and got angry at the characters and to me that is a sign the book is worth the effort to Liston to, I finished this book in two days i could not put my I pod down, Not good when you need to see clients.. I hope you try this one it is a must read in my opinion and I have allot of books in my library..

The rating says it all for me

SEP was my first enjoyable introduction into listening to books. If I didn't own all of the others I would have thought this was her first attempt.
I cannot figure out if it truly was the story or if it was missing the remarkable Ana Fields but whatever it was I found this story...tedious. If you want to own all of her audible books...that would be the only reason to purchase.. But that is just my opinion.

Not so irresistible

Like some of the others I'm a big fan of SEP and I have every one of her books but this one is a repeat. Female character has no money, won't accept help from anyone, lives in poor conditions and falls in love with the rich handsome man. Won't let him help her or take anything from him...do you think you have heard this story before, well you have, just read her other books. Breathing Room, Natural Born Charmer, etc. I also don't know if it was the narrator or just the bad story but the interaction/attraction between Meg and Ted was missing. Ted was boring and had an unattractive personality and that is so different of how he was in Fancy Pants. There was very little chemistry between Meg and Ted and for him to get left at the alter and then 2 months later be having sex with the person who the town says "broke up the wedding" is nuts (but so is the idea that it would be Meg's fault and that an entire town would turn ugly towards her.) Also crazy that Lucy (who left Ted at the alter) thinks it is great that Meg wants to have sex with him. Really?


I normally love SEP books but I wish I had not used my credit on this one. Next time I will wait until more reviews come out before jumping in and buying something just because she wrote it. Narrator was okay...no one can replace Anna Fields she is truly missed.

The title is perfect, as is the book!

The minute I see a new book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, I order it immediately. I don't even have to read the synopsis because I know I'm going to love it. This one is no exception. Maybe I was just starved for one of her books, but it may have been my favorite.

There is never a dull moment in a book by SEP! They are always impossible to put down. I've read every one and several I've read twice! As I finished this "irresistable" book, I realized I had a big smile on my face. The narrator was wonderful, too. She really understood the characters and made them seem so alive to the listener.

Please give us another book soon, Ms. Phillips!

Fun and entertaining!

As always SEP entertains. I enjoy her books because they always have a happy ending, are very funny and quite entertaining. This is a great book to snuggle under a blanket with and just relax.

I loved it!

I loved the book, and the narrator did a great job. It is a real pleasure to have a new SEP book. I will listen to it several more times.

Irresistible this book is not!

All of SEP's books are eagerly awaited, but this story was such a disappointment. It has stellar characters who did almost nothing. The heroine whined a bit, and there was almost no motivation to explain the hero. I truly missed the secondary romance that are in most of Phillips' books. The new narrator was flat so much so that times her voice pulled me out of the story.
Far from irresistible.

Vintage SEP

I think SEP is a genius. Heard this as an audiobook and will definitely be buying a copy of this book. The performer - Shannon Cochran is brilliant, managing to do all the different voices very well and bearing in mind the ensemble scenes in this book, that's no mean feat.
The story is vintage SEP - down on her luck girl finds herself at the mercy of quite a malicious town who will do anything to humiliate her becos they blame her for destroying the life of their golden boy mayor. Girl manages to find herself, get the mayor, earn the respect of the town - it sounds so clich?d but SEP manages it brilliantly.

I stayed up till 4:30 and 2:00 in the morning on consecutive nights to hear this - it's that good. And the last couple of minutes - brilliant - one of the best endings I've ever read.

Ok, but not as good as Chicago Stars series

This book was ok but the story and the characters in the town were just ridiculous and I just kept rolling my eyes. They all need a slap upside the head. The Chicago Stars series by the same author is so much better!
