This was a DNF. The first four chapters were too damn depressing. Could be I just wasn't in the mood for it, but if the author doesn't have me in the first chapter she usually doesn't get me in the long run. I might try other books in this series - I seem to recall really enjoying the third book when I read it in the 90s. ( )

I'm beginning to think that SEP just isn't for me. I know that a lot of people love her books and they make lots of best-of lists. They are definitely well written and she does have some great scenes and dialogue. However, her heroines are just too beat down for me. I've only read a couple of her books but none of her heroines have had even close to a normal sex life before they meet the hero. And in reading blurbs for the other books in the series I don't see anything to change that. That's just a hot button with me when it becomes a pattern and especially in a contemporary series.


Regarding this book, there were some cute scenes. I liked Phoebe and wanted her happiness. I'm a big football fan so a lot of the behind the scenes stuff was fun for me and I could feel the excitement during the games. I still have one more SEP to read for a challenge but unless it's something different I think that's my last one. ( )

At first I didn't think I was going to like it, but I read a review that said that despite the fact the first 50 pages didn't managed to grip her so much, she was glad she continued to read, so I gave it a shot.
It was a great read :) ( )

I loved this book! It was great! Phoebe and Dan had such great chemistry! This book was feel good, but still had some drama. There were lot's of laughing and snorting and still tense moments. I really enjoyed reading it, it was really cute! :) ( )

Book description
The Windy City isn't quite ready for Phoebe Somerville -- the outrageous, curvaceous New York knockout who has just inherited the Chicago Stars football team. And Phoebe is definitely not prepared for the Stars' head coach Dan Celebow, a sexist jock taskmaster with a one-track mind. Celebow is everything Phoebe abhors. And the sexy new boss is everything Dan despises -- a meddling bimbo who doesn't know a pigskin from a pitcher's mound.

So why is he drawn to the shameless sexpot like a heat-seeking missile? And why does the coach's good ol' boy charm leave cosmopolitan Phoebe feeling awkward, tongue-tied....and ready to fight?

The sexy, heartwarming, and hilarious "prequel" to Susan Elizabeth Phillip's This Heart of Mine -- her sensational bestsellng blockbuster -- It Had To Be You is an enchanting story of two stubborn people who believe in playing for keeps.
