Boy Meets Chick...


Hey Chicks!
It's TUESDAY!
and if you haven't noticed the trend here yet
this is the day I pick a favorite author and review and recommend a few books....



What I Did for Love
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
(henceforth known as SEP)


SEP's latest is sure to please her old fans and will definitely grant her some new ones.


Georgie York is a former child star, recently heartbroken by her movie star ex-husband..There seems to be a lot of parallels to the Jennifer Anniston/Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie story here...Georgie's ex is a huge box office star, the woman he leaves her for is equally famous and exotic, and the public sympathizes with Georgie. But Georgie is sick of the sympathy and has decided to take matters into her own hands. Enter Georgie's former co-star Bram who is the sexy Hollywood badboy we all love to hate...and sparks fly. A trip to Vegas, Paparazzi everywhere, and a marriage under the influence all ensue, and yes it all kind of has a predictable ring to it....BUT, SEP makes this story fun and new...by adding her wit and comedic talents. What SEP does better than most, I think, is build sexual tension. This story is no exception, actually it's probably one of her best.
Some other great Titles by SEP are







SEP has a way of developing unique characters that make her stories not just your average "Boy Meets Girl"

"The Hong Kong Connection" is a legal thriller about a gutsy female attorney who takes on high ranking International officials. It's a taut, rollercoaster of a ride from New York to Palm Beach to Washington D.C. to Hong Kong. The plot is expertly woven, the characters persuasive, and the dialogue snappy and spot on.
