I Can't Make This Up


Product description

From Publishers Weekly

Readers who have enjoyed Phillips's writing in the past (Heaven, Texas) will be disappointed by her latest contemporary. In dire straits as a result of her irresponsible lifestyle, Daisy Devreaux is given an ultimatum by her outraged father?jail or an arranged marriage to Alex Markov, a broodingly handsome Russian handpicked by her father to teach Daisy the error of her ways. It's a thin plot that's kept going by a superabundance of sex. In better outings, Phillips's razor sharp wit might keeps things afloat, but there is nothing funny in the mean-spirited and abusive hero.

Wow... can romance fiction get any better than KISS AN ANGEL? In my opinion, I think not! KISS AN ANGEL by Susan Elizabeth Phillips is the best contemporary story I've read so far. It's full of humour, love, and witty dialogues.
The story opens with Daisy Devereaux and Alex Markov exchanging marriage vows. You see, Daisy has been depressed lately -her mother just passed away. Her parents were divorced, and Daisy was living with her mother. So when her mother died, Daisy thought the only way she could cope with her sadness was go on a shopping spree. She bought expensive clothes and jewellery all on credit, and when she had no money left in the bank, she still kept spending. It was only until she was given a warrant to be arrested did she realize her big mistake. Not wanting to face jail, she turns to her father for help. Daisy and her father never got along well together, and her father thought it was about time for Daisy to clean up her act. So he decides the only way that that can happen is for Daisy to get married to a man of his choosing, for six months. Well, and if she doesn't, then she can just face her future in jail. So Daisy's father picks Alex Markov, and quickly they are married. At once Alex takes Daisy away, and she is on a journey that will forever change her life.
Alex Markov is a man full of secrets, and his character/history is not fully revealed until near the end of the novel. He is not too pleased about getting married, especially to a girl who he believes is an airhead and only cares about her vanity. Well you may wonder why he would agree to such an arrange marriage. But as mentioned above, he is a man full of secrecy and to say anything would ruin the novel, but I will only say he owns Daisy's father a favour, because he did something for Alex long time ago.

As someone who suffered childhood trauma, I find this an exceptionally important book. It heals me. I've read it 5 times and I'm just beginning to understand it in a way I can articulate. It works like a fairy tale. Also it offers something like "magical realism" where what is bad is believable and the transformation to good is rather magical. Each of the characters has both strengths and weaknesses. Each has to learn how to become stronger in their areas of weakness, and use their strengths responsibly. They are tested and they go through trials. These are not realistically drawn characters--they are bigger than life and their transformations are improbable. I love them, as I would have as a child, including the animals who uphold the ethos of wildness and being true to our natures?a theme mirrored in the sexuality in this book. There is a little story within this book about Alex and Sheba that reminds me of "The Grand Inquisitor" in the Brother's Karamazov. The story stands on its own very well, but it also educates the reader for the rest of the book. The ideas in this story are a template that helps us understand other characters: different circumstances can cause similar traits; people can form strength in unhealthy ways especially in pride; and (mostly) people are not all good or all bad. All the characters attain redemption through doing things intrinsically difficult for them and thus becoming more whole. Note: Alex is not just being stubborn about love and children: he is dedicated to never allowing himself the chance to do evil by having a family without being able to love. He believes he cannot do it. He believes he is guided by a greater good when he makes things difficult for Daisy in order to discourage her love for him.Read more ›

Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of those rare authors that you can pick up and know without a doubt that you have a winner! "Kiss an Angel" was the first SEP novel I read. And now, I've devoured almost all of her books and wait with bated breath for the next release. Specifically, with regard to "Kiss an Angel," Daisy and Alex have a special story. They are thrown together through the wily political maneuverings of Daisy's father. But love blossoms between the pair even though there is a painful history behind Alex. Daisy manages to bring Alex out of the box and gives him life and joy. In the end, it is Alex who manages to return the gift after the way he hurts her and chases her off. I think that every great love story has a poignant moment where love that would normally be taken for granted is challenged and the lovers have to face that challenge in order to make for a future. Daisy and Alex have to face that challenge, and of course, like every romance novel - love prevails at the end of the day! For those who have never read and SEP novel you are surely missing out!

I absolutely loved this book and am glad I didn't listen to the reviews that touted this as not up to SEP's usual. The hero and heroine are great together. Daisy is a great character with a great ability to be understanding and forgiving and who has sooooo much love to offer. Alex on the other hand, had a really miserable childhood and has removed his emotions to the point he feels incapable of having a loving relationship with anyone. Alex was of the opinion that Daisy was a spoiled rich girl with nothing to offer--but she soon proves him wrong and Alex has to see her for what she is.
The story is absolutely wonderful. I too wondered how I would relate to circus life being a major part of the story, but the story is so wonderfully written that it was part of what made it intresting. The secondary characters were well written and added the right mix to the story, including Tater and Sinjin.
If you like stories that leave you feeling good and that tug at your heart, then don't miss this book--if you love SEP it is a must read.
