After having read and really liked a couple of the recent books in the Chicago series I backpedalled to this vintage title 1995 and was just as much pleasantly surprised What I ve come to recognise as SEP s trademarks by now were all already there from the engaging and smooth prose to the scrumptious dialogues taking romantic comedy and in this case the opposites attract trope to a higher levelYes she needed to become a little less accommodating and yes he often tended to be a little too smug for his own good but plain Gracie Snow and NFL golden boy Bobby Tom s love story was so deliciously fun sexy and sweet and the perfectly ticking sense of humour brought the small town cast and all its antics to life so vividly as to make this book an older gem that hasn t age a day to savour from start to finishBuddy read with Jill Staging Tourism Bodies on Display from Waikiki to Sea World off his mind Microsociology Discourse Emotion and Social Structure or The Last Imaginary Place A Human History of the Arctic World out Lefty of his life Instead the hell raising playboy decides to make her Not Just Roommates over from plain Jane to Texas wildcatB.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips has a uniue way of combining romance with laugh out loud humor and then mixing in unusual characters to create an engaging rom com story Heaven Texas has her distinctive funny sexy style written all over it This is the second book in the Chicago Stars series but can be read as a standalone While I didn t like this book as much as It Had to Be You I still found it to be uite enjoyableThe story surrounds Bobby Tom Denton a good ole southern boy He s a ladies man who prefers leggy blondes with huge boobs and lots of makeup Bobby Tom is sexy irresistibly charming generous to a fault affable but very stubborn I happen to be immature undisciplined and self centered pretty much a little boy in a man s body although I d appreciate it if you didn t uote me on that He s a 33 year old two time Super Bowl champion who is struggling with an identity crisis after a career ending injury Bobby Tom is due to begin filming his first movie in his small hometown in Texas Gracie Snow is a production assistant for the film and she has been tasked with escorting Bobby Tom from Chicago to the movie set on time At 30 years old she never thought she d still be a virgin Gracie is a Plain Jane and one huge walking fashion disaster from her bad haircut to her ill fitted matronly clothes Gracie has led a sheltered life She s sweet altruistic curious witty giving and very bossyGracie and Bobby Tom get off to a rocky start but they get to know each other better when they set off on a road trip to Heaven TX They finally arrive at his hometown where he receives a hero s welcome The cowboys named it Heaven because it had the best whorehouses between San Antone and Austin It becomes clear that everyone wants something from Bobby Tom money an autograph time a favor sex The town seems to be filled with selfish people who think he owes them for his success It irritated me the way Bobby Tom let everyone walk all over him Women are lined up around the block day and night to get some of that Bobby Tom lovin so in an effort to fend off their advances he and Gracie concoct a story about them being engaged Since nobody would believe he could fall for someone as homely as Gracie he arranges for her to have a complete makeover Although the lines between fantasy and reality are in danger of being crossed Gracie enters the scheme with open eyes and a vow to take nothing from Bobby Tom Her sense of honor wouldn t allow her to take anything from him the way everybody else did She would give herself to him out of the fullness of her heart not with the hope of receiving anything in return And when it was over this man who had been kissed by the gods would at least be able to remember that Gracie Snow was the one person in his life who had never taken anything from him I love how independent and feisty Gracie is She puts Bobby Tom in his place when nobody else will Even though she s led a sheltered life she s not afraid to try new things She s willing to risk her heart for momentary happiness and wonderful memories She often refers to herself as homely and acknowledges her fashion faux pas but I never thought of her as being ugly Her humor her selflessness and her many acts of kindness make her appealing The makeover merely brings out the pretty girl who was always lurking there but who was never taught how to flourishBobby Tom and Gracie make a fun pair and I love their verbal sparring as well as their easy joking There are a couple moments that manage to be simultaneously hilarious and sexy I ll never look at Neapolitan ice cream the same way again Sweetheart I don t think there s going to be any pain if that s what you re worried about Now I m no gynecologist but you re thirty years old and whatever barrier might have been there when you were a youngster has got to have evaporated from old age by now However I wish there was sexual tension between the two Maybe it s the repeated reminders that Gracie doesn t look like Bobby Tom s type she doesn t have big breasts and she s not gorgeous but they seem like friends with benefits than real lovers Bobby Tom likes her but he never tries to make her feel desirable He likes having sex with her but it seems about scratching an itch than feeling attracted to her In fact he tells himself that she s a charity case but acknowledges he enjoys her company than anyone else It makes him seem shallow in my eyes for most of the book and I wanted to shake Gracie for selling herself shortThere s an interesting little side plot involving the economic stability of the town and Bobby Tom s mother who is a grieving widow Many zany characters are introduced as old relationships are tested and new friendships are forgedThe unforgettable all hell breaks loose ending is not to be missed It alone is makes the book worth reading The story concludes without an epilogue however leaving an air of uncertainty What are Bobby Tom s plans for the future Will he continue acting or go into philanthropic work What will Gracie s role be Where will they live Has Bobby Tom come to terms with prematurely ending his football career Luckily Susan Elizabeth Phillips has now posted an

I ve been rereading SEP s books this past month and falling back in love with her novels as well as catching up on some new ones which I enjoyed immenselyHowever Heaven Texas is NOT one of those books The romance starts off distastefully with Bobby Tom Denton living the life of a rich shallow sexist NFL player who treats women like disposable sex objects Fine usually this serves as a starting point for the hero who will display inner worth and grow along the way Instead Bobby Tom s behavior and attitude not only refuse to improve but instead over the course of the novel plummet into the realm of HORRIFYINGAs Gracie s trying to leave Bobby Tom and restore her means of self respect Bobby Tom breaks out of jail after a night spent assaulting his friends and being a mean drunk sonovabitch chases her down in a stolen suad car and as she s running from him in terror a tiny 5 4 woman against a tall heavily muscled professional football player he s yelling at her to stop and ends up tackling her on the side of the road Following this as he s physically dominating her she s begging him and crying for him to Stop only to be rescued by the cops who arrest Bobby TomUpon seeing Bobby Tom resisting arrest which results in his getting roughly handled by the arresting officer Gracie leaps on the cop s back and starts screaming that he let Bobby Tom go freeThis isn t a romance It s a codependent horror story about a spoiled selfish man s devolving into an abusive misogynist asshole and the woman who loves him despite how horribly he treats her and who cannot escape him The reason Gracie called off their engagement in the first place was because he d brutally rebuffed her efforts to help him and then he d tried to force her to have sex with him dominating her as she s once again yelling at him Stop and beating him until her hands are hurting He apologizes of course never meaning for her to have hurt herself trying to get him to stop abusing her only for this behavior to be repeated in the climactic final scene without any sign of Bobby Tom or any aspect of the novel acknowledging this repetition establishes a pattern of abuse There s no resolution simply Gracie loving Bobby Tom despite his terrorizing her as he finally proclaims his love And somehow this is supposed to be a happy endingThe ending is absolutely appalling as the Mayor and Bobby Tom s family arrive on the highway and the cop who was in the process of arresting fugitive Bobby Tom is castigated for upholding the law Bobby Tom is released he gets a few sharp words about getting into drunken brawl with a childhood friend but any efforts to hold him to account for his horrifyingly abusive behavior is dismissed as everyone starts joking about how Gracie can t marry Bobby Tom until she passes the Football Test What follows is Bobby Tom dumbing down the uestions so Gracie is worthy of marrying this abusive piece of shit who just so happens to have won two Superbowls and is Heaven Texas favorite sonThis novel is a throwback to the rape is romantic tropes of the 70s and 80s And I m happy to say that SEP revisits this formula of handsome blonde charming Stars uarterback and spunky unattractively dressed woman with great personality in Natural Born Charmer only SEP finally gets it right with Dean Robillard and Blue Bailey I m deleting this book from my Kindle and I wish I could burn it from my memory I ve never been so disappointed by the ending of a romance novel before as I watched what essentially amounted to a woman fleeing her ex in terror suddenly turn into her getting sucked back into his dysfunction and defending him from the only goddamn person in town who was holding him accountable for being a abusive asshole who s breaking laws right and left The painful irony is that earlier in the novel Bobby Tom becomes outraged at the suggestion that his mother s lover raped her This book was in desperate need of a deus ex machina to swoop down from on high and rescue Gracie from Bobby Tom Usually at the end of these novels there s this pleasant feeling as you close the book and you imagine the couple s happy future Instead I m imagining how Bobby Tom s struggles to find meaning and direction in his life after having to uit the NFL due to an injury well that ll no doubt be taken out on Gracie Instead of watching a rough hero reform this novel gives us a sexist guy who initially appears charming and misunderstood on the surface and shows his horrifying descent into abusing a woman who loves him who actually has enough self respect to try to leave her abuser only for him to chase her down and tackle her and refuse to let her leave himThis is a horror story that attempts to romanticize the heros misogyny and violence against the heroine Gracie s terror in the final scene and how it suddenly evaporates into sympathy for her abuser s pain leading to their getting back together and getting married it makes me shudder at how it glorifies the sexism and violenceI realize I m rambling and repeating myself at this point This isn t a cool and collected review I m genuinely horrified by how Bobby Tom s descent into villainy is brushed aside by everyone in town and by Gracie herself that final scene between Bobby Tom and Gracie is what I d expect from a villain in a romance novel right before the hero swoops in and beats the shit out of him rescuing the heroine professing his love they all live happily ever after yadda yadda yadda Yet there is no one to stop Bobby Tom not even the police can stop this superstar football God born and raised in
