This book got really good about halfway through. Once Molly and Kevin began spending time together out at his family's campground, it started getting really interesting. I liked the relationship that grew between the two of them and I really liked the other characters as well. The ending was good...which is so important! I may recommend this book, although it's not one of my favorites.

I really enjoyed THIS HEART OF MINE, it was just a wonderful book. I liked finding out finding out what happened to Kevin and Molly after hearing about them in earlier books.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!MOLLY IS A GREAT CHARACTER THAT DOESN'T RELY ON FLASH OR BEAUTY TO GET HER MAN. SHE USES BRAINS AND GUTS AND SNAGS ONE OF THE SEXIEST JOCKS AROUND. S.E.P. REALLY KNOWS HOW TO GET INSIDE A PERSON'S HEAD AND GRAB ON TO BASE EMOTIONS. I LAUGHED AND CRIED THROUGH THE WHOLE BOOK AND DID BOTH AT THEIR FINAL SHOWDOWN.

I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed this book. This is not your typical romance. The characters are not stereotypes as expected and nothing can be predicted. This is a first SEP book I have read, so now I look forward to the rest of her stories. If you want to laugh and feel all warm and fuzzy inside, pick up this book.

This was my first SEP book and I can't wait to read the rest of her books. I loved the characters and couldn't wait to get to the end of the book. This book will make you laugh and cry. Keep writing Ms. Phillips!!!!

This book has it all; romance, fun, and tears. I fell in love with not only Kevin and Molly but both their families. All the characters were memorable. The romances were fun and sexy. A great book! My first book by this author but not my last. You never want to put it down or for it to end. I'm looking up her other books now!

This was my 1st S.E.P. book, but I have to say, if all her books are as great as this one, she is on my auto-buy list from now on! Loved this book! The characters were funny, and so real! Great job Susan!

Kevin is the star QB of the Chicago Stars. Molly is the sister of the owner. They are vaguely acquainted at the outset of the novel, but that rapidly changes. The novel is full of the dialogue and plot twists that SEP's books usually have, but somehow, this book didn't grab me. There was no explanation for Kevin's recent erratic behavior or for Molly's periodic outbursts of odd behavior. Ultimately, they just seem like strained mechanisms that force the plot along without any place within the story. I kept waiting for the book to become as interesting as SEP's early books, but it never happened. Not a bad book, but not the best of SEP's work. I'd wait for it in paperback or check it out at the local library.

In her late twenties, Molly Somerville, children¿s author of Daphne the Bunny, chides her self for her teen-like crush on football player Kevin Tucker. Molly¿s sister and brother-in-law own the National Football League¿s Chicago Stars where Kevin is the superstar quarterback. Kevin sleeps and dreams football, but his behavior has changed this year as he does daring stunts almost like he suffers a mid-life crisis.

One night by chance, Molly and Kevin end up together at her sister¿s vacation home. They share a wonderful night of lovemaking, but the morning light brings acrimonious feelings. When Molly informs Kevin that she is pregnant, they reluctantly marry. That ends when she miscarries. However, Kevin knows he loves Molly and will do what it takes, including a Hail Mary as time runs out, to gain her love.

THIS HEART OF MINE is an entertaining fun to read contemporary romance. The story line will blitz the reader due to the cast. The lead characters are an enjoyable duet and the snippets from Bunny add to the understanding of Molly. The support cast also provides the readers an opportunity to further understand the essences of Molly and Kevin. Award winning Susan Elizabeth Phillips scores a touchdown with her hardcover debut novel.

This Heart of Mine is book #5 in the Chicago Stars series by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. This book was a gift from my dear friend, Kelly, and I am so thankful she gave it to me. I have read one other book by this author and I fell in love with it. Is it possible, now, to love SEP even more? This book had me laughing out loud and within a few minutes, breaking my heart. The characters were loveable, the story wonderful and silly and engaging. It was unputdownable. I have decided that SEP’s writing is magical. I was entranced from the first page. Molly Somerville is the younger sister of Phoebe Calebow. She’s now twenty seven years old and is the author of the adorable children’s book series Daphne the Bunny featuring Daphne and her best friend, Benny the Badger. Molly loves her sister and Phoebe’s husband, Dan and their four children with all her heart. She has always tried to be the best she can be for them since she owes them so much. But Molly has also been known for some little slips of crazy now and then. She’s been feeling restless lately so she decides a few days away will be good for her. She needs the time to concentrate on her next book. So she packs up her adorable little poodle, Roo, and takes off for the family vacation home in the woods. Little did she realize that she would have a visitor while she was there. The object of a crush she couldn’t seem to shake, the Quarterback of the Chicago Stars football team her sister owns, the oh so delectable Kevin Tucker. Kevin Tucker has pushed his bosses as far as he dares. He’s been participating in some daredevil stunts lately, things that could injure him, ruin his future with the team. As a last resort he is sent to spend a few days at the Calebow’s vacation home for some time to rest and think. Little did he realize that the house already had a visitor. Kevin and Molly’s few days together at the cabin start them on a journey neither of them could have ever expected. It started at the cabin, continued in Chicago, and then led them to a place that was a piece of Kevin’s history, the Windlake Campground. While Kevin’s purpose for the visit to Windlake was merely to get rid of it, Molly was immediately drawn to the adorable cottages and the bed and breakfast. She felt a peace and a purpose she hadn’t been able to find in a long time. “There was something magical about the campground. Possibilities seemed to shimmer in the air. It felt almost enchanted.” In their time at Windlake, Kevin and Molly got to know each other. And what they learned surprised them both. Feelings began to grow and change. But Kevin is still determined that he needs to get rid of the campground. That football is the only future he can concentrate on right now. That nothing is more important than his football career. You can’t help but to fall in love with Molly and Kevin. Molly was crazy and impulsive and sweet and heartbreaking. She made me laugh out loud with her crazy antics and she kept Kevin on his toes. Kevin was sexy and bossy and stubborn and swoony. I would go from loving him to wanting to smack him. You will also meet another very important character in this book, Lilly who plays an important part in Kevin and Molly’s lives. I don’t want to tell you what her connection is. Only that there is also a whole little side story going on with her and a famous artist, Liam Jenner. After reading the two books of SEP’s books that I have read, I have put her r

Maybe it was due to the very low expectations (that other reviews had made me) set for this book...but I really did like it. Yes, the leading lady is immature and flawed- but who isn't? In fact, the very normal-human insecurities and screw-ups of SEP's heroines are a huge draw for me. I laughed out loud, winced, felt deep sadness, and was genuinely delighted by the story. I could have done without some of the bunny stuff, and was not really into the cartoonish ending, but was still sad to finish the last page.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips has been one of my favorite authors for many years. This Heart of Mine is also a favorite. I enjoyed this novel about two people who learn to accept and love each other in spite of their seemingly obvious differences, and who willingly make personal sacrifices to protect and preserve that love. The story of these two people is both funny and touching at times.
