Publisher's Summary

Molly Somerville knows she has a reputation for trouble. She did give away her $15-million inheritance, but, hey, nobody's perfect. Yes, Molly's happy about almost everything...except her long-term crush on the daredevil quarterback for the Chicago Stars. That awful, gorgeous Kevin Tucker, a man who can't even remember her name! One night, Molly's penchant for running into trouble runs her right into Kevin himself, turning her world upside down. Heartbreak follows, and just when she's certain things can't get worse, Kevin forces his way back into her life. She and Kevin battle their attraction while trying to cope with an aging sexpot actress and a pair of teenage newlyweds.
Their careers and lives are in crisis, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Sometimes falling in love hurts; sometimes it makes you mad as hell. And sometimes, if you're very lucky, it can heal in a most special and unexpected way.

I usually do not choose to read contemporary romance but SEP was when Diana Gabaldon recommended ‘Natural Born Charmers’ I thought I would given this author a try.

This by far was one of my favorite Chicago Stars books – the other being No Baby But Mine. I loved the 2 main characters in this book .. they have great chemistry together .. SEP makes you cry and laugh all in this one books.

Anna Field's narration is superb and her death is a great lose. There were several recording issues – lines being repeated.

I have since listen to ALL the Chicago Stars books – have enjoyed them all but they do tend to follow a similar story line.

Pure Escapism

I always rate a book by how much I miss the characters when I've finished reading it - SEP books always exceed my expectations and I miss her characters terribly at the end of a story! I LOVE how she doesn't reserve passion for "the young" - it is so refreshing! In this story I often laughed out loud - quite embarrassing when walking alone!

A really enjoyable read

My first book by this author but I really enjoyed it. Once I'd started reading, I couldn't put it down. The story held together really well and made my smile on more than one occasion. I didn't want it to end. It was so good that I've just downloaded another book by the same author.

Good book

Enjoyable listen. Unfortunately I listened to Natural Born Charmer (book 7 in this series) before I listened to this one, and the plot formula and types of characters is identical! Natural Born Charmer is better though. Some of the Lily and Liam side plot scenes were a bit cringeworthy in this book. Still a good book though.

I’ve started listening to book 6, Match Me If You Can and that plot is different so glad to know the author doesn’t always use the same formula for her stories as that would get old pretty fast.
