It had to be You and Heaven, TX

Before I start I wanted to mention that I did not post covers for these because the covers that they had at Amazon were not the covers that I read and one of the reasons that I put the covers it to help me remember what book it is that i read. So on with the post...

It Had to be You
by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
This is the first book in her Chicago Stars series. I had never read her before, but I have heard about her many times (and April was a slow new release month) so I broke down and decided to try her. She was a nice read. I do not think that she will be a keeper or auto buy at this point, but I did enjoy her. She might be one that will grow on me as I read more of her. I do not know yet.

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?

Heaven, TX
by SEP
I think I liked the other one better. I had to force myself to continue on because Bobby Tom was annoying. But then more than halfway through the book I started to like him more so he was redeeming himself. So far though this series is not doing it for me. But knowing me, I will continue on anyway.

Come heck or high water, Gracie Snow is determined to drag the legendary ex-jock Bobby Tom Denton back home to Heaven, Texas, to begin shooting his first motion picture. Despite his dazzling good looks and killer charm, Bobby Tom has reservations about being a movie star -- and no plans to cooperate with a prim and bossy Ohio wallflower whom he can't get off his mind or out of his life. Instead, the hell-raising playboy decides to make her over from plain Jane to Texas wildcat.

But nothing's more dangerous than a wildcat with an angel's heart in a town too small for a bad boy to hide. And all hell breaks loose when two unforgettable people discover love, laughter, passion -- and a match that can only be made in Heaven.

CONTINUE ON!!!! She is one of my all time favorite authors I'm sure she'll grow on you. Nobodies Baby But Mine is my favorite of the series and I think it's the next one for you to read.

Others that aren't part of a series that I love are Ain't She Sweet and Breathing Room.

Give her another shot.
