It Had to Be You
***4.5 NOW stars***
You’re my only failure. My only failure, Phoebe.
Perfect book for getting in the spirit of the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII (2/2/2014).
Phoebe is a sexy underestimated daughter of a football owner (Chicago Stars). When her father sudden dies she inherits his team. Unfortunately, her father’s “gift” wasn’t given out of kindness. Her father had always seen her as a failure and this opportunity to run the team was a test. She must win the championship or she will lose any inheritance.
Ron is the cocky coach of the Chicago Stars. He has little faith in the new owner of the team. Butting heads and misunderstandings overshadow their relationship. The chemistry between these two is best summarized by them:
”I guess we’re like oil and water.” -Phoebe
”I’d say we’re more like gasoline and a blowtorch.” -Dan
It Had To Be You just celebrated its 20th year in publication. It has some cheesy moments but that seems to be common with books written in the 90’s. This was my first book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and it won’t be my last.
