Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this latest installment in Phillips's romance series starring the Chicago Stars football players (This Heart of Mine; Nobody's Baby but Mine), the bestselling novelist delivers a love story wrought with delicious sexual tension and charged banter. When debonair starting quarterback Dean Robillard, on a soul-searching road trip after a serious shoulder injury, happens across Blue Bailey, walking alongside the road wearing a beaver costume, he stops to help her. Blue is far from a Barbie-esque football groupie, but broke and stranded, she needs both a ride and a job, and the football all-star (driving a sexy Aston Martin) poses an interesting opportunity. As the two travel from Colorado to Dean's new farmhouse in east Tennessee, Blue resists his advances, and both athlete and vagabond struggle with deeply rooted trust and familial issues that are soon exacerbated by the unexpected presence of Dean's mother at the farm. While the verbal sparring in this textbook case of opposites attracting feels stagy at first, the rough edges come together in an alluring way. (Feb.)

From Booklist

After her ex-boyfriend Monty insists that she is the only person he ever loved, Blue Bailey packs up everything she has (which isn't much) and moves from Seattle to Colorado to be with him. But once Blue arrives, she discovers Monty has found love again with a younger, blonder new girlfriend. With few job options and practically no money, Blue thought she might be stuck in Colorado for a long time, until Dean Robillard drives through on his way to Tennessee. The last person Blue wants to ask for a favor is a way-too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good stranger who annoys her to no end. And who turns out to be the quarterback for the Chicago Stars. But Dean is Blue's only ticket out, even if it means she is stuck with him all the way to Tennessee. RITA Award-winner Phillips creates yet another classic romance in her loosely connected Chicago Stars series with this splendidly satisfying tale of love, family, and redemption. Generously seasoned with plenty of tart humor and snappy dialogue, and graced with a delightfully amusing pair of protagonists trying desperately not to fall in love, Natural Born Charmer is simply irresistible.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is something special. May 2 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love reading Susan Elizabeth Phillips and I loved this book in particular. First you have Dean,this absolutely gorgeous, rich, sexy football player who could have ANYONE and then you have Blue,a feisty, artistic, down on her luck, but never gives up quirky looking girl. You would never picture these two together as they don't really fit into each others worlds but through the course of the book they develop a sweet dependence on each other. This book has Phillips signature funniness but also her characters really come alive in this book and stay with you a long while after.

5.0 out of 5 stars NATURAL BORN CHARMER -BEST BOOK YET !! May 11 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My favorite novel of this author has always been Heaven Texas but this book has completely taken over first place!!
It is so full of warm, witty characters who continually make you laugh throughout the book, really a jewel of a read.
This is a book you will not want to put down and you will be sad when you realize you have finished the story.
I really cannot pick my favorite character there are so many,the verbal jousting between Dean and Blue and Blue's adoration of Jack,who is Dean's father and I loved the retorts Blue thinks up when holding her own with the rude pugnacious Mrs. Garrison who owns the small town where Dean's farm is located
and as Dean says in the book his family is like Norman Rockwell on crack
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves razor edged wit and a good laugh
If only men were as interesting as the personality the author creates for
Dean's character sigh.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful writing Feb. 12 2008
I read all of Mrs Phillips books and this one has become one of my favorites. Characters are alive and real with a lot of humor and living in a fairy tale. The story can't be totally real but we are not reading this genre for the "reality" but for the magic. But even so I don't like characters that are two dimensional and Mrs Phillips knows how to tell a story, make you laugh and enchant you.
I think this is a book to read when you are a little down or sad or you need some cheer up. Read it and enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Treat for the Open Road Nov. 3 2007
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
I often take long driving trips and look forward to letting well-read books entertain me. Natural Born Charmer turned out to be a good choice for a recent trip to Philadelphia. Why? The book opens with a scene where a driver sees a woman stomping down the highway wearing a headless beaver suit. From now on, I'll be keeping my eyes open for such a character.

In addition, I can tell from listening to the book that I would have found it not nearly as entertaining if I had read the book silently instead of listening to the wonderful Anna Fields whose versatility makes the characters more interesting than Susan Elizabeth Phillips wrote them.
While most readers capture accents and sex pretty well, Ms. Fields adds wonderful qualities of emotion and character to her reading that reflect a deep appreciation of the story . . . adding to my understanding and appreciation.

NFL star quarterback Dean Robillard isn't feeling very happy during the off season as he recovers from his first serious injury. Rather than working on rehabilitation, he's gone for a long drive . . . possibly to his new home that's being restored. His attention is taken by the angry woman in the beaver suit, and he picks her up looking for some amusement at her expense. When she turns out to be seemingly unaware of who he is and filled with witty comments, he decides to let her ride along . . . as long as she stays amusing.

Blue Bailey is one of the feistiest women you'll ever meet in fiction, almost as feisty as some real women I've met. She has attachment problems and keeps moving like the proverbial rolling stone. On top of that, life has dealt her some tough blows that she's struggling to contain.
