~This Heart of Mine~

by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

      Heroine: average

    She longed for him from afar--right under his very nose!  Impetuous heiress-turned-authoress Molly Somerville has had a crush on leading quarterback Kevin Tucker for years, but despite her close ties to his team he's never taken notice of her.

    Gorgeous Kevin Tucker has been too busy riding high on his fame as an NFL star, loving the limelight and the bevy international supermodels that come with it to pay heed to the brainy girl-next-door sister of his team's owner.

     Thrown together under the worst of circumstances Kevin and Molly are left trying to make the best of a bad mess.  What will it take to make the two of them breach each other's protective walls and discover the love hiding within them?

      What worked for me:

     As far as snappy dialogue and cute images, there were some great gems to be found in the pages of this book.

      Size-wise Molly was neither slender nor plump, but really quite athletic.  Though she experienced some twinges over not having inherited her mother's showgirl body, she was glad for the healthy, whole body she did have.

       I especially liked the fact that this story dealt not only with the issue of size but also with age, since there was a secondary romance featuring an older woman (who also happened to have some trouble accepting her body.)

       What didn't work for me:    

     The initial getting-together of the rather immature heroine and hero felt more like a plot device from an historical novel, and seemed totally out of place in a contemporary setting.

Overall:

     A solid read.  There were some awkward plot issues, but they may be worth overlooking for the fine humor and the interesting secondary romance.

If you liked "This Heart of Mine" you might also enjoy: "Love at Large", "Some Girls Do", "It Had to be You", "The Independent Bride", "Getting Lucky", "Born to be Wild", "Blushing Pink", "The Bridesmaid's Reward", "Plum Girl", "Lola Carlyle Reveals All", "Runaway Bay", "Fast Women", "Welcome to Temptation", "Faking It", "His Seductive Revenge", "Dear Cupid""Looking for Laura",  or "Too Much Temptation".
