You all must think I am a bit crazy reading one SEP book after another but what can I say. Susan Elizabeth Philips just does it for me. Her writing is a bit whimsical and her stories never fail to make me happy. Right from the beginning I always lose myself in the story, fall in love with the characters and all that is going on around them and as I emerge at the end, I always have a stupid grin on my face.
Call me Irresistible was no different. I. LOVED. IT!

I’m going to make this short and sweet. SENSATIONAL. Pure SEP gold… as I’ve come to expect it now. I have yet to give her less than full marks on any of her books.
This one takes us back to good ole Wynette, Texas, and all of the folks that go along with it.
And yes… the one and only…

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
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
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.”
The first time I ...more
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
Top form SEP writing about what I think she writes best: opposites attract.
A runaway bride-to-be brings Wynette's golden boy and role model Ted Beaudine and bohemian outsider Meg Koranda together in a whirlwind of unexpected attraction, golf and small town intrigues.
Just one complaint, taking away a full star though, the fact that, unlike what usually happens in her books, Ted's pov is totally absent until the very final chapters and his actions and motivations annoyingly appear to always come ...more
Call Me Irresistible is the sixth installment in Susan Elizabeth Phillips's adult contemporary romance series titled Wynette, Texas. While this installment is its very own story, it features many characters from the other books in the series. I found these additions to be an unexpected but extremely entertaining treat.
Call Me Irresistible was a fun but somewhat complicated story about the woes of finding Mr. Irresistible. Our heroine Meg quickly learns th ...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 of Wynette ...more
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

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

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.

"Llámame irresistible" es el libro que más me ha gustado y enfadado a partes iguales. Me explico. Durante toda la lectura he deseado con todo mi corazón que les pasasen cosas horribles a los habitantes de Wynette, llegando a la conclusión de que será feliz si los castrasen químicamente y así no puedan maltratar a las próximas generaciones. Desde luego estos personajes han dado vidilla al libro, pero me ponían de muy mala leche.
Ahora vamos con los protagonistas. En la primera parte ...more
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 th ...more
It has been so long since I started reading her books that I found it absolutely wonderful to go back and visit past characters. It was like a fun family reunion in Wynette Texas!

Their kids are all grown up now and causing all kinds of trouble of their own in the ...more
It is a wonderful book, a very quick read and it left me with so many good feelings as every time I read SEP's books happens.
I loooove it! I just hope that soon I'd get the book about Lucy :3
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
Seriously, this book is everything what I love about SEP! *sigh*
I have to say I wasn't that thrilled when I first found out that this book was of Ted and Meg. And Lucy. I dunno it just sounded not that interesting. Oh man, I was so wrong. I practically inhaled all the pages, I just couldn't put it away. ;) I mean the beginning is a bit hard to get into but as soon as Meg and Ted interact together, the story gets interesting.
What I love about SEP is her fab writing style. Funny, witty dial ...more

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