Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Phillips ( Fancy Pants ) recovers from a sluggish start to offer a fun and lively look at lots of `tales' already love, microchips and rock 'n' roll. In 1976, California socialite Susannah Faulconer is engaged to marry an up-and-coming executive in her father's technology corporation when Sam Gamble hustles his way into Susannah's well-ordered life with a revolutionary product: a prototype for a microcomputer, the work of electronics maven Yank Yankowski. Sam, a long-hairedp. 42 visionary, captures Susannah's imagination, and when he crashes her picture-perfect garden wedding, she hikes up her gown and hops onto the back of his Harley. Her euphoria is short-lived as she realizes that neither Yank nor Sam has the requisite business sense to succeed in pk their venture. She digs in, making the most of her upper-crust training and a few library books on business, but it's clear they need a professional. The unlikely entrepreneurs pique the interest of marketing wizard Mitchell Blaine. Mitch sees Susannah as Sam's ``woman trouble'' but when he tries to cut her out of the company, he learns that under the ex-debutante facade is a woman who can play hardball with the boys. (June)

Meet the Author

Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, romance's newest rising star, has been praised as "one of the best writers of contemporary fiction in the twentieth century" (Affaire de Coeur). With her delightful novels, including her most recent hits Dream a Little Dream and Nobody's Baby But Mine, she has touched the hearts and funny bones of readers -- and has soared onto both national and New York Times bestseller lists. A past recipient of the Romance Writers of America's prestigious Favorite Book of the Year award, and the Romantic Times Lifetime Achievement Award, Susan Elizabeth Phillips lives with her husband and two sons.

Biography

Susan Elizabeth Phillips believes if Jane Austen were writing today, novels like Pride and Prejudice would be sitting on the bookshelf alongside the love stories that she and her fellow romance novelists pen. "Oh, and one more thing," she said, wagging her finger at a Chicago Tribune reporter in 1999, "Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy should have kissed at the end of that story, and if I'd have written it, they would have -- and it would have been a good kiss, too."

Such sass is Phillips' calling card, and since her 1994 football romance It Had to Be You, she’s been stitching threads of humor into her romance novels.

"I'm not a particularly funny person in person. I can't tell jokes, but it just seems like it happened when I started to write," she told The Romance Reader in 1997. "It wasn't anything that was planned. I'm a very intuitive writer; I just sort of let the characters talk to me, and they started saying funny things, so I wrote them down."

A schoolteacher until her first son was born, Phillips began writing in the early 1980s with her best friend and neighbor. The two were both regular readers and decided to try their hand at a book of their own, plotting their story during nightly bike rides with their toddlers in tow. They got the name of a publisher at Dell who liked the book and published it under the pen name Justine Cole.

Her friend moved into a legal career, but Phillips continued writing and publishing, this time under her own name. She released what she calls her "big books," titles like Fancy Pants and Honey Moon featuring Hollywood starlets and jet-setting London socialites.

Her stories, she has said, moved outside of the mainstream after that. She gives her romantic characters emotional wounds and personal difficulties that often impede their inevitable happy endings. But without such obstacles, there would be no story.

"I've grown increasingly interested in writing about family dynamics and much less interested in sticking a psychopath with a gun in any of my books," she said in an interview with the web site iVillage. "Technically, I've simply learned how to capitalize on my own distinctive voice and how to be a better storyteller."

The healing process that the characters go through is what makes the novels work. "Creative plotting adds sparkle, and entertaining, well-drawn secondary characters round out the novel, but it is the growing, healing relationship between the protagonists and how they finally form a family that touches the heartstrings and makes this contemporary romance an unforgettable read," the Library Journal wrote in a review of Phillips' 2000 book First Lady.

The dialogue, she has said, is also important. The exchanges in romance novels are satisfying to women who love to communicate, she told USA Today. "Women really like to talk. That's one of our processes. We talk to gather information. Women love the connection that comes from conversation," she said. "My husband says we broadcast. He thinks through things before he talks, but he says women just kind of broadcast until they zero in on what they want to say."

Phillips has also disputed the notion that romance novels are nothing more than books about "throbbing thighs." They aren't about sex, she told the Chicago Tribune in 1992, but are instead complicated fictions about women taking charge of their lives and being the stories' heroes.

"The woman always wins the man," she said, "and he always gets tamed in the end."

Good To Know

Phillips wanted to publish her first novel under the pseudonym Chastity Savage, but her best friend and co-author nixed the idea.

Though two of her books -- It Had to Be You and This Heart of Mine -- have football plots, Phillips doesn't consider herself much of a sports fan. "In my mind, if you don't have to wear mascara to do it, it doesn't count as recreation," she told Book Page.

Her family helps her keep the details straight. Husband Bill was her technical adviser on describing Dallie Beaudine's golf game in Fancy Pants, and son Zach's interest in knives, guns, and dead insects surfaced in Teddy, the son of the novel's leading lady. He also wrote and recorded a companion CD to her title This Heart of Mine, which is available from her web site.

    Enjoyable Read

    Not my favorite Susan Elizabeth Phillips book, but still a good read. Revolves around the upstart of personal computers and is very informative with how PCs really became popular with people at home, but was lacking in the romance department. Phillips is always a go to author for me, but this one was a tad disappointing.

    Good read

    I have always liked SEP's books and this is no exception. I have started reading her many books after this and went back to read this one. You can tell how her writing style has changed, but this was still a good read. I am not sure how I feel about getting so invested in Sam's character only to have Suzie not end up with him. I almost feel like that storyline went on too long if it wasn't going to last. Loved the last third of the book though. I agree with others- the typo mistakes are awful and do distrupt you until you get used to them. If you love SEP, it is worth it overall.

    My favorite

    This older book is actually my very favorite SEP book. I also have a copy of the audio book on cassette, and it is my 'go to' book on tape. I love it! Not a modern romance novel, if that is what you are looking for. If you are a computer geek you will love this one--I definitely did.

    Not a favorite

    I usually love SEP's books. I enjoy picking them up and reading them again. That is not going to happen with this one. I could not get into the story line, and just when I began to like to characters, the story line changed, and they all seemed to change.

    Not a keeper!

    I have been so excited when I heard HOT SHOT was out on the shelves. I couldn't get to the bookstore fast enough. After spending the whole day reading I was sorely disappointed. I just don't think reading about the computer industry scandal is what makes a great romance novel. This was a sore disappointment--it was way too fast with undevelope characters.

    Not Satisfying

    I love every Seppy book so I'm able to forgive this one. I read the entire book hoping that maybe the guy could change. But then they switched over and I just couldn't adapt. So this book was a disappointment to me.

    You Will Not Be Able to Put This Book Down! 0ne of SEP best!

    I read this book twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time around- and as I pass it down to my friends- they are all agreeing that it is a fun, easy read that is full of twists and heart-warming characters. A must read!

    Not her best

    This is not her best book. The plot is slow and seems to drag. I didn't like any of the characters. Usually, I am unable to put her books down, but not this one.

    Fast moving, and never dull

    The author does a good job of making you fall in love with all of the characters. The book is absolutely one of the best stories I have ever read. It moved so quickly, but I was never lost. I made my husband read it, and he thought the book was one of the best he had ever read too. There are unexpected twists and turns throughout the entire book, not just at the end.
