The funniest love story of the year, Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips fans have been craving. The beloved New York Times bestselling author returns with a delightfully sassy, sexy, and downright irresistible tale of true love Texas style.

Ted Beaudine, one of Phillips's most charming characters (the adolescent heartbreaker from her hilarious debut, Fancy Pants, and the new college graduate from Lady Be Good) is now all grown up and in a heap of romantic trouble all his own--in a perfectly marvelous contemporary romance that fans of Emily Giffin, Kristen Hannah, and Elin Hilderbrand will simply adore.

Shallow story, snarky local characters, poorly written. Not at all enjoyable; I gave up after a couple chapters.

An enjoyable read, but there were just a few problems that made it a bit more less enjoyable then the others I've read by her. First and foremost, I was not a fan of the townsfolk in this one being as rude as they were and then literally doing a 180 later, wasn't sure how Meg actually enjoyed living in Wynette. And secondly, it was hard to love Ted as a hero until the end when we FINALLY were let into his head. This was frustrating, and I'm not sure why SEP decided to not include his POV for the rest of the book, especially when the rest of her novels include dual POV's. But again, overall it was a fun ride!

26/8 - I hated Ted. I also hated Wynette. It's a town of horrible, gossiping, judgemental old women, and men who can't (or aren't willing to) stand up to their wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers and say "Hey! You're being a real bitch to that woman and it isn't right.". I don't know what on earth possessed Meg to go along with any of Ted, or the town's, schemes, or willingly go back to live there permanently. If I ever read a future book in the series (highly unlikely , but I might get booknesia and forget how much I disliked this one) I wouldn't be surprised to see Meg turned into one of those old biddies, Stepford style. I understand how this was supposed to be funny, but Phillips completely failed on the execution. All those funny, snarky scenes and comments were actually cruel and mean and had me tearing up in sympathy for Meg. This is only the second Phillips book I've read, and if the town of bitchy busybodies features in all the Wynette books I won't be picking another one up if I can help it (see my earlier comments). I'll stick with her other series, Chicago Stars, at least that had some genuinely funny scenes. This was an under 24-hour-read, and that's the only reason I didn't give it 1 star. Those 2 stars are actually 1.5 stars, btw.

Made me laugh. A typical romance, but well written, had me hooked, I didn't want to put it down.
Loved the characters and town!

I finished this book within two days, it was that catchy. But it is a romance, and is well-written word junk food. There were plenty of surprises to keep me reading another chapter. The end was a little too neatly tied up (for me). But for a romance fan, this would probably be a great read, with a victorious and heart meltingly romantic ending. Groan!! Perhaps I should not read any more romance since I tend to enjoy broody, non-fantasy stories, with no starry-eyed glamorous characters. And no golf. And no macho Texans with hero chins. Sigh! But regardless of that...not a waste of two days.

Really enjoyed this book! I'm not usually a chick lit fan, but this was a great read. This is the first time I'd read books by Phillips. I went back to the library and got Glitter Baby. She really should write a series about the Koranda family.

Wow! Me reading RomCom.

OK. I'm a guy and usually read Grisham and Sandford and mysteries - all law and detectives and police work. Nevertheless, this author (Susan - who I now follow on Twitter because her tweets are like micro-books :-), she really turned this old guys head around and turned my heart on. What a wonderful writer. I've read lots of her books (and some them twice) - she rarely disappoints me.

I will confess I am a major Jane Austen fan too, so she's in good company. C

I really enjoyed this book. Laughed a lot at those many unexpected situations Meg found herself having to deal with. I'll try to read more books by S.E Phillips now. Great Summer reading for sure!
