(Chicago Stars, #8)

Susan Elizabeth Phillips


A star quarterback and a feisty detective play for keeps in this sporty, sexy, sassy novel—a long-awaited new entry in the beloved, award-winning, New York Times bestselling author’s fan-favorite Chicago Stars football series.

Piper Dove is a woman with a dream—to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback, Cooper Graham. Problem? Graham’s spotted her, and he’s not happy.

Which is why a good detective needs to think on her feet. “The fact is . . . I’m your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just . . . mildly unhinged.”

Piper soon finds herself working for Graham himself, although not as the bodyguard he refuses to admit he so desperately needs. Instead, he’s hired her to keep an eye on the employees at his exclusive new nightclub. But Coop’s life might be in danger, and Piper’s determined to protect him, whether he wants it or not. (Hint: Not!) If only she weren’t also dealing with a bevy of Middle Eastern princesses, a Pakistani servant girl yearning for freedom, a teenager who just wants of fit in, and an elderly neighbor demanding Piper find her very dead husband.

And then there’s Cooper Graham himself, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants—even if what he wants is a feisty detective hell bent on proving she’s as tough as he is.

From the bustling streets of Chicago to a windswept lighthouse on Lake Superior to the glistening waters of Biscayne Bay, two people who can’t stand to lose will test themselves and each other to discover what matters most.


Piper is hired to investigate a legendary football star, Cooper. She comes up with the most ridiculous disguises to keep Cooper from figuring out she was tailing him. Unfortunately, for her, Cooper knows he’s being followed and catches her in the act. After a scramble on why she’s following him, he ends up hiring her to give him the lowdown on his night club employees.

Piper isn’t your high maintenance type of gal and she’s definitely not Cooper’s type of woman that he normally dates. But her competitive nature and her determination to be in charge were something that Cooper couldn’t resist.

Another fun book to listen to in the Chicago Stars series.

First Star I See Tonight is a standalone set in the same universe as the other Chicago Stars books: It Had to Be You, Heaven, Texas, Nobody’s Baby But Mine, Dream a Little Dream, This Heart of Mine, Match Me If You Can and Natural Born Charmer. I’ve read 3 of the 8 books and had no problem following along with the story. I’ve read book 1, 6 and now 8.

  1. So you haven’t read Match Me If You Can? Because that is not only my favorite in the series, but just one of my favorite contemporary romances. I’m curious about this one, but a little nervous. Glad you enjoyed it.
