I read the first five books of this series in five days. They were that addictive. Susan Elizabeth Phillips combined humour, love and football so fantastically well that I found it incredibly easy to ignore life for the entire week. This doesn’t put me in a good light, I know. But Ms. Phillips’ knack for creating some pretty varied characters was highly addictive. Her stories were real, her characters, genuine. The combination of some chuckle-inducing dialogues from her cast left me in complete marvel. Her talent for giving each of her characters realistic, distinct voices amazed me. Each one has their own quirks and personalities that I didn’t feel like one was a mirror-image of another.
This series was the perfect escape from the doldrums of life and the pesky winter blahs.
RATING: All books received 4 out of 5 Stars.
