Call Me Irresistible - TLC Book Tours



Paperback: 385 pages
Publisher: Harper-Collins Publishers
Rating: Good/Great Read

Synopsis:  R.S.V.P. to the most riotous wedding of the year!  Lucy Jorik’s the daughter of a former U.S. president.  Meg Koranda’s the offspring of legends.
One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible—Ted Beaudine—the favorite son of Wynette, Texas. The other is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.
Meg knows breaking up her best friend’s wedding is the right thing to do, but no one else agrees. Faster than Lucy can say “I don’t,” Meg’s the most hated woman in town—and stuck there with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. Broke, stranded, without her famous parents watching her back, Meg believes she can survive by her own wits. After all, what’s the worst that can happen? She’ll lose her heart to Mr. Irresistible?
Not likely. Not likely at all.

Why I wanted to read it:  After reading the synopsis, I thought it was 100% chick lit!
My Rating: 3 out of 5, a good read.
Book Cover Rating: 3 out of 5.  I can picture this being Meg, no doubt! However, I am surprised there isn't a picture of Ted.....he is Mr. Irresistible.
Length of Chapters: 3 out of 5. The chapters in Call Me Irresistible were on the longer side for my taste, but there were stops/breaks throughout the chapters.  That works for me as well.  As I have said before, I need to be able to pick up and put down the book as I don't have any "block" of time to read. I have to read whenever and wherever I can in 3 - 5 minute increments. 

My Review:  I liked the book.  I could picture the characters, small town in Texas, the mess Meg gets herself into.  In trying not to spoil the book for anyone, events in the book happen pretty fast, in my opinion.  Call Me Irresistible has a lot of humor, not so much "girlie drama," (Meg is pretty tough) and "smut."  This combination makes it 100% chick lit!
This is my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book, but it will not be last.  She has the Wynette Texas Books (Call Me Irresistible is in this series), Chicago Stars Books and a ton of stand-alone books.  I am going to go check out It Had to Be You from the Chicago Star series.  Looks fantastic and perfect for fall (Female NY knockout inherits a Chicago football team)!
