I can't believe I gave 1 star to SEP's book.... But this book deserved only that.

The story line was so petty about the town folks who all were in love with Ted and hated Meg instantly when she supposedly broke his wedding. And they hadn't any qualm at all in pushing Meg into Spence's arms just so that they can have their golf resorts. And the story just kept revolving around the golf resort thing...

The characters were all very annoying and I hated them all. The town people were pretentious, Meg...more

I had book club on Saturday and we talked about the different types of readers and how what you read affects your ratings and reviews on Goodreads. If you are a heavy enough GR user, you know who the people are in every group— It’s funny to read the reviews of romance books that primarily lit fic readers write. It’s also funny to read the reviews of, well, more complicated reads done by people who do not usually venture into those realms. That’s why I am a fan of Vinaya’s “comparative 5 stars” s...more

*Swoon*

What an amazing ending. And by that I mean specifically the last 4 sentences.

5 stars for this one because I couldn't put it down and I really became consumed by the story.

It's been a long time since I've read a great book like this. SEP's better books are charming and hilarious but also a bit heart breaking. The storylines are dense and the characters are multi-dimensional, often making them annoying at times.

This was one of SEP's better books. And I haven't read one of her better books...more

5 Irresistible Stars!!

There is something to be said about reading a Susan Elizabeth Phillips's book that just get to me every single time. I don't know whether it's the humor, the witty dialogue, or the way you have to suspend reality and just immerse yourself in the story and get out of it feeling lighter with a goofy grin on your face. That's exactly how I felt after reading this book.

On paper, this is as far away from "realistic romance" as you can get. Not everyone happens to be the child o...more

Call Me Irresistible will be the best book in the Wynette, Texas series. Ted is amazing, I love him and it will ROCK! It will rock so hard the planet will shake, craters will appear everywhere and swallow all those people who hate this book. Craters will cleanse all the urban areas out there so that more trees will grow and we can have more paper in order to print more Call Me Irresistible books! And we will create a religion that reads this book non-stop. We will explore Mars (more thoroughly,...more

Lucy Jorik is getting married. To the most irresistible man in the world, Ted Beaudine. Meg Koranda, Lucy's best friend and bridesmaid is certain Lucy is doing the wrong thing. In Meg's opinion these two perfect people are not meant for each other. Caring for Lucy as she does, she advises her not to marry Ted. And Lucy agrees. She's known for a while that maybe Ted and her are not meant to be. So when Lucy finally pulls out of the wedding - at the church - the people of the small town o...more

Debating between ★★★½ to ★★★★ stars. I may revise my review after I sleep on it as I had mixed feelings on different things about this book.

This is a review of the audio version of Call Me Irresistible. It is narrated by Shannon Cochran who does a very good job with both the male and female voices and accents.

I’ve been meaning to get to this one and it was selected from my bookshelves for a “Pick It For Me” (PIFM) challenge. I just had to wait for the library to make it as available; due to po...more

As a devout SEP fan, I'm not always that objective about her work. With that disclaimer out there....I really liked Call Me Irresistible. The book is rated 4 stars because she has written some of my all time favorites (Kiss an Angel, Heaven, Texas, Glitter Baby and Nobody's Baby but Mine) which set the bar for my *5* stars. Call Me Irresistible wasn't quite up to par with my fav's, but it is definitely SEP and therefore COMPLETELY worth your time.

Here's what I loved:

I enjoyed this book because I enjoy SEP's sense of humor and how she can take two people who are total opposites and make their relationship work so well. However, I had two problems with this book:

***SPOILER***
1 - I didn't care for the heroine, Meg Koranda, at all. She meets her best friend Lucy's fiance, Ted, at the wedding rehearsal...is totally rude to him and then basically works on the niggling doubt Lucy supposedly has about marrying him and convinces Lucy not to go through with it. Funny...more

I loved this book! This felt like the SEP I love as I read this book. It reminded of such good books like To Kiss An Angel and Nobody's Baby But Mine. (There wasn't any side love story in this and I'm okay with that).

I read this book in one day and did not want to put it down. Ted and Meg were both great characters. Meg had it rough at the beginning of this one but I liked how she took control of her life. I wasn't so sure about Ted in the beginning. He treated Meg kinda rough at first. Although...more

Very enjoyable. I didn’t want to stop reading. Fun escape.

REVIEWER’S OPINION:
The author used a similar plot in several books. Heroine is down on her luck, in an unfriendly place, abandoned by family/friends, has no money. The locals bully, despise and/or humiliate her. She suffers, discovers things about herself, becomes responsible/successful, and finds love. If a reader complains that they’ve read this before, I say “Who cares. It’s a fun story and she does it well.” I’ve enjoyed every one of...more

Favorite Quote:
“This is America. We’re entitled to our opinions.”
“Wrong. This is Texas. And my opinion is the only one that counts.”

No real spoilers here but quite a few of my favorite quotes.

Call Me Irresistible is Ted Beaudine’s book. Ted (Fancy Pants & Lady Be Good) is all grown up and the ultimate catch. Good looks, money, famous parents, and a high IQ. Ted is getting married to Lucy Jorik (First Lady). But Lucy’s best friend, Meg Koranda (Glitter Baby & What I Did For Love) doesn’t...more

This time he risked messing up her makeup to give her a tender kiss on her lips. “The sooner we get through this, the sooner I can strip you naked, lose my self-control, and humiliate myself again.”

He stole another kiss. “You know how much I love you, right?”

“I do.”

“Good. Hold on to that thought.” He scooped her into his arms, and before she could tell him it was unnecessary—that she’d pulled herself back together and he needed to put her down right this minute. Before she could say any of that,

Its was a good read (obviously its SEP)but because its SEP i was expecting much more with the plot being what it is. its Teds book but its was like 89.96% Meg and 10.04% Ted. I know how she designed the book but i just did't like it. you can talk about someone all you want, say what you think they are thinking but its just not the same. i have read fancy pants and lady be good and saw Ted grow and i was expecting his book to be his book not Megs. AND its a SEP book where the hell was the drama,...more

Call Me Irresistible is probably the book I anticipated the most in this entire series as it features characters that have already been introduced rather than new and unfamiliar ones. SEP doesn't deliver this time, however.

I can't begin to express how disappointed I am with Call Me Irresistible , and by extension, SEP. The beginning was so awful, I nearly dropped this book several times. The only thing that kept me going was my loyalty to the author that initially made me fall in love with CR....more

I have two recurring issues with Phillips’ books and this has both of them in spades: 1) it made me squirm and 2) it’s very reminiscent of her other books. Call Me Irresistible has plot echoes of [deep breath] Ain't She Sweet?, Heaven, Texas, Lady Be Good, Match Me If You Can, Kiss an Angel, and the basic ending is found in so many of her books, I won't even try to list them all. It says something about what a good writer she is that I enjoy her so damn much anyway.

Along with being amused, as u...more

I love it when you read a book and it makes you experience a vast array of emotions - smile, laugh, cry, embarrassment for the characters, even to a small degree hate them, but by the time the final page is read, you need to see the main characters get their HEA. Any book that can wring all those emotions out of me gets the 5 star review.

Meg Koranda ventures to Wynette Texas for the wedding of her best friend Luck Jorik to Ted Beaudine. It doesn’t take long for Meg to stir things up, but really...more

Important note for those who are going to read this: I highly recommend reading the following books before you read this since there are so many cross over characters and backstory - First Lady Fancy Pants Glitter Baby Lady Be Good

As with most SEP books, I really loved the honest/raw emotions between the characters. I loved the animosity at times. It was a token SEP storyline. The plot was predictable, but still immensely enjoyable to read. I laughed. I cried. The only thing that would have made it better for me would have been if the...more

Harkening back to what made SEP the darling of witty contemporary romance for oh so many years- Call Me Irresistible starts with a bride to be running out on Wynette, Texas's favorite son, Ted Beaudine, and her best friend Meg Koranda stuck taking the brunt of the town's venom over the whole ordeal.

See Meg comes from money, being the daughter of The Glitter Baby - one of America's original Super Models- and famous actor and Pulitzer winning play-write Jack Koranda, she shouldnt have a care in th...more

one of the best books i've read from SEP. read it in less than a day! so love Meg. I hate Lady Emma, Torie and the rest of Wynette here. am definitely going to read this again. and again. and again. haha. S.I.Z.Z.L.I.N.G H.O.T.

Amazing read! except for those times (which is a lot) when the whole town was ganging up on Meg just because they can (and they will!), it was really enjoyable.

This author is an auto read to me, so often times I don't know what the book is going to be about as I don't read the blurb because it really doesn't matter as I will read it. But then I was chatting with some of my GR friends about this, all of us anticipating this book. At this point I thought, huh, maybe I should check out what this one will be about. After reading the blurb, I expected to hate this one.

I really loved the idea of Ted and Lucy together. They are some of my favorite characters...more

How have I not heard of Susan Elizabeth Phillips? HOW????

My husband bought this for me at Target instead of another book I'd asked for, but I didn't say anything because he's so awesome and does like a million things for me all the time.

I looked at the cover one day, a few weeks after he bought it, thought it was cute, and read the inside jacket flap. I was a little wary because it seemed like I'd have to know all about the characters from other books of Phillips' that I hadn't read, but the b...more

I've already read this book, but this time I listened to it. It was a different experience, this time, though my overall opinion of it hasn't changed much. Compared to the last time, I enjoyed the beginning, with Meg's struggles and weird relationship with Ted. Seeing Ted in a different light was also nice, though I wish we could have seen a bit of his perspective. It became insane after she told him she loved him - which understandably annoyed me. Anyway, the book was quirky and funny.

Now, the...more

I know it was my fault for starting this book with big expectations. Really big expectations. I was already in love with Ted in previous books that the Ted we get to meet at the start of the book was shocking and disturbing. Meg, for previously not caring about her at all, I found her very easy to relate to (though maybe not lovable, but I think that's because of her fashion sense).

Anyway, I'll start with the summary as usual. Lucy and Ted are getting married at crazy small town, Wynette, at the...more

I'm sitting in my overly comfy couch, my laptop placed oddly on a pillow and my fingers hovering uncertainly on the keys, as I am trying to recall everything I felt through this book and my page-to-page assessment of what I thought of it. *Deep breath* Okay, here goes nothing...

Call Me Irresistible is a really wonderful book that calls for a few laughs, few gasps of outrage and finally a sigh of relief and contentment... Or that's what happened with me.

I really enjoyed the story, and I loved M...more

Oy. SEP, this book was really off for me. This book seemed like is should follow the SEP formula. Heroine is in THE WORST situation ever, made worse by the hero. The hero has good reasons for being a jerk and, over the course of the novel, we come to respect both the hero and the heroine, forgive them for their flaws and generally cheer them on. In Call Me Irresistible, the heroine is in a bad situation and the hero only make is worse. But I never came to respect them. Or care for them. I finish...more

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, though.

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...more

The Huffington Post says the books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips provide a “gateway drug to the whole [romance] genre,” which she assumes is a good thing. Bookpage magazine calls her “the crown jewel of romantic comedy writers,” which is definitely a good thing.
