I simply adore Meg Coranda and Ted Beaudine. These two stole my heart some 4+ years ago when I read this for the first time. You can read my praise below! But I have to say the audiobook kicked things up a notch. If there was a way to assign 10 stars I would. It was a FABULOUS audiobook.

Just putting a voice to Meg and Ted and all the other characters made me fall in love with this story all over again. ❤ I laughed, I cried and I swooned. These folks of Wynette, Texas truly are one of a kind!

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…

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

Did a quick re-read in preparation for the next book of the series. Did I like it again the second time around? Yes, I did. It was great. She sure is a talented author. She is one author I would love to meet actually. I think she would be great fun. Her sense of humour seems to come through in her writing.

Her voice gained strength with the rightness of what she was doing. “You all know what I mean. The way the birds start to sing when he walks outside. That’s creepy, right? And those halos th

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

4 ½ stars. Very enjoyable. I didn’t want to stop reading. Fun escape.

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.”

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

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

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

It's a Wynette, Texas series reunion!!!!

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

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

You never truly expect to like a golf romance let alone find it hot until you see shit like this:
Pardon my french but he can use that golf club on my ass any time.

The moment Meg set her eyes on Ted Beaudine she quickly realised what type of man he is - the most perfect man alive. A walking saint whose steps cause flowers to bloom and vegetation to prosper. His hair catches light at all the right angles and the sun casts halos over his head. Birds sing when he approaches, women swoon whe

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

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
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.

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.

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

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.

If you are a Susan Elizabeth Phillips fan than this book is a MUST!!

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! LOL We get to see Francie & Dallie Beaudine from Lady be Good and Cornelia & Mat Jorik from First Lady and Fluer Savagar & Jake Koranda from Glitter Baby!! Their kids are all grown up now and causing all kinds of trouble of their own in the little town

I have a certain kind of weakness for Susan Elizabeth Philips' books. They are exactly what I like and what I want in these kinds of books and Call Me Irresistible is no exception.
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
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 by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Fancy Pants by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Glitter Baby by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Lady Be Good by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

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 h
4 Stars

Once again the impeccable writing, awesome characters and dry humour reminded me why I love SEP so much.

But I can't give this book all the stars. The fact that Ted was Lucy's ex was like a persistent, annoying itch that wouldn't go away, no matter how long or hard I scratched. If only Lucy weren't Meg's friend...

Susan Elizabeth Phillips has taken the enemies-to-lovers trope and written engaging, heartbreaking, sassy, funny, inspiriring story of love and redemption.

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 like wha

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

Loved it! I was laughing throughout and ended feeling warm, mushy, and confident that these two people were meant to be together.
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:

1 - I didn't care for the heroine, Meg Koranda, at all. She meets her best friend Lucy's fiance, Ted, at the wedding 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. Fun
