Review
  • /*Starred Review*/ Annabelle Granger has no idea why rich, gorgeous, and successful sports agent Heath Champion needs a matchmaker, but she is more than happy to take the job. Annabelle, who recently inherited her beloved Nana’s matchmaking business, sees Heath as the key to her economic future, so she uses a connection with a friend to set up a meeting. It only takes a few minutes with bold, brash, and work-obsessed Heath for Annabelle to understand exactly why her new client might have had trouble finding the woman of his dreams. With a wicked wit and saucy charm, RITA Award-winning and best-selling Phillips fashions a deliciously fun romance between a testosterone-rich, irresistibly sexy hero and a sweetly endearing, yet feisty-to-the-core heroine who proves to be more than his match. A secondary romance between rival matchmaker Portia Powers and Heath’s business associate, Bodie Gray, adds another measure of sexy humor, and readers familiar with the Chicago Stars series will especially enjoy the appearances of characters from those books in Phillips’ latest dazzling contemporary romance. -- John Charles (BookList, 05-15-2005, p1642)
  • Rendezvous Review: Annabelle Granger is trying to rebuild her late Nana's matchmaking business. With the help of friends from the Chicago Star football team, she hopes to sign up "The Python", the super spots agent Heath Champion, as her client. Heath hoped to find the perfect wife when he signed up with another agency, but now agrees to have both set up introductions. Annabelle wishes she was as poised and polished as her competitor, but her redheaded gutsy personality seems to form a seesaw friendship with Heath. These two strong, yet vulnerable, characters are joined by Phoebe and Dan, Molly and Kevin, and the entire cast from Ms Phillips' other award-winning novels involving the Chicago Stars football team. Susan Elizabeth Phillips is synonymous with best selling and award winning books. This book joins all her others. A not-to-be-missed masterpiece. -- Nancy McCann (Reviewed 07-01-2005) (Rendezvous, vol 22, number 2)
  • Phillips's latest captivating romance (Ain't She Sweet ; Breathing Room ) follows a pair of reluctant lovers from their combative first acquaintance to a happily ever after. Perpetually discombobulated but adorable Annabelle Granger inherits her grandmother's matchmaking business, renames it Perfect for You and targets Chicago's super-rich, super-aggressive sports agent Heath Champion, better known as the Python, as her first client. Intrigued by this spunky, determined upstart, Heath—who is dead set on finding the ultimate trophy wife by age 35—agrees to give Annabelle a chance despite his contract with Portia Powers of Power Match. Soon Annabelle is introducing him to the Windy City's most extraordinary women, none of whom seem to meet Heath's discriminating standards. Could it be because chemistry has sparked between the matchmaker and her client? From trading barbs the two progress to exchanging kisses—and more. But when Heath finally meets his should-be dream girl and Annabelle's business threatens to go bellyup, they each must face their deepest feelings and make some difficult decisions in the name of love. Phillips has once again created a delightful page-turner. Agent, Steven Axelrod. (Aug.) --Staff (Reviewed May 30, 2005) (Publishers Weekly, vol 252, issue 22, p35)
