Morsels {5} Chicago Stars Series by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

This Heart of Mine (Book #5)
Publication Date: February 1st, 2002

RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars
This was supposed to be the last book of this series according to Ms. Phillips but when you have a good thing going, why stop? This Heart of Mine is the story of the younger Somerville, Molly. This girl had always been plagued with insecurities about her looks. After all, if your sister is a blonde bombshell and one of the most powerful woman in the NFL, you’d try your best to blend in the background as well. Molly is one of those characters who’s flighty and at the same time she’s got a good head on her shoulders. The romance between characters was of course, sizzling. If I weren’t such a big fan of this series, I’d say, she should’ve ended it right here. But the last two books were just as memorable and fun. As a matter of fact, this series took me back to those days when reading was the ultimate escape. 

Match Me If You Can (Book #6)
Publication Date: September 1st, 2006

RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars
If there’s one thing that’s consistent about Ms. Phillips’ heroine, is that none of these ladies were pushovers to their leading men. And the best thing about it is that she was able to give them their own personalities. It’s really weird because I’ve pretty much read the entire series in succession and never once did I feel a sense of deja vú. In this book, Annabelle Grainger is pretty at the end of her rope. She needed Chicago’s most lethal sports agent’s business to keep her own head afloat. Too bad that he’s also hired the most prominent match-making business in Chicago to help him find his “ideal wife”. I’m not going to lie, Annabelle is so awkwardly cute that I cringe at her ineptitude. But heck, this girl keeps on fighting and I absolutely loved that about her. 

Natural Born Charmer (Book #7)

RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars
I can honestly say that I’ve had the most laugh whilst reading this book. Witty, hilarious banters, toe-curling romance and some pretty emotional stuff as an icing on the cake. To my utter dismay and heartbreak…*pause*…this is the last book in this wonderfully romantic series. The only thing that I have to complain about is that the entire Chicago Stars team wasn’t really mention here. And it’s sad because, well, as this is the last book, I feel like I’m not getting a resolution. Wait, what? What the heck am I babbling about? What resolution? Everybody got their happily-ever-after, THE END. And that’s all that matters.
