Susan Elizabeth Philips creates story lines and characters that are humorous, unique, sexy and so much fun to read. Lady Be Good is the second book in the Wynette, Texas series. He was a pro-golfer who was a bit of a womanizer I guess you could say. But he was also a little misunderstood.
Right now what he needed to do was stay out of the limelight and do whatever it took to get his suspension from the PGA lifted. Agreeing to watch over Emma for a few weeks was a way for him to do this.
He just had no clue what Lady Emma was capable of. She was sweet, funny and a little bit proper. When she first lays eyes on Kenny she gets a bit flustered. She corrected herself quickly though.
Or so she thought anyways. Emma is devising a plan to ward off the Duke of Beddington from marrying her and Kenny is looking to get his suspension from the PGA lifted. Did I mention that Emma is a bit bossy? Slowly everything that is swirling around Emma and Kenny becomes more than what they both bargained for. Emma thought she could control her feelings for Kenny because of what was at stake but sometimes there is no way to control your feelings. And Kenny got to that point of not knowing if he was coming or going.
He is used to handling woman but none of them challenged him like she did. It was fun watching this guy squirm a bit. I knew it was going to be another fun and sweet romantic read.
One last thing. Imagine geek meets sexy smartass girl. They made me laugh! They were a lot of fun. View all 31 comments.
Reto 19 PopSugar Como dato, este libro es el segundo de una serie, pero no es necesario leer el primero. I originally read this a few years ago and gave it 5 stars. Just finished a re-read and it would not make the 5 star mark today. If Dallie and Fancy Pants hadn't show up, it might even be lower.
I don't even know why I didn't love it as much this time around. I am kind of afraid to re-read the rest of the series for fear that I might find fault with them also.
Still, she is a great author and she will be an "auto-buy" for me. Classic Susan Elizabeth Phillips! Lady Be Good is the second installment in her adult contemporary romance series titled Wynette, Texas. I just love Ms. Phillips' ability to write amazing humor and romance and she excels at both in this one. Golf is one of my least favorite sports so the male lead's pro-golf career was a bit of a bore for me personally but this is such a fun book!
If you're into adult romances filled with laughs, check out this author!!! My favorite quote: It's bad enough everybody in town's going to be thinkin' I'm sleeping with a depressed, lice-ridden, hemorrhoidal foreigner who likes to be tied up and might be pregnant, although-since she's just about cornered the market on condoms-I don't know how that could have happened.
But I will not-you listen to me, Emma! My first thought on Kenny: And then this happened: This My first thought on Kenny: This literally left me gaping… I mean I hate kids and all but this guy is exaggerated. Am I going to burn in hell for laughing at this? Right underneath him. Do you love him now?? You tied up to a poll and me exercising some baseball bat swings on you. Good times. Double the sarcasm there, just in case.
But here goes. But I will not —you listen to me, Emma! Hmmmm who else? I love Dex. Simply adore him! He totally stole the spotlight from Kenny. Beddington is a sonofabitch. Hope that he would drown or something. And Ted The story is hilarious!
Grab it and spank read it! View all 3 comments. May 01, Milica's Bookshelf rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jun 18, Piper rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was properly delightful!! Lady Be Good is the second installment in the Wynette, Texas series.
The main characters once again depict a Texas golfer and a British lady. One of them is extremely bossy and independent while the other is quite lazy and passive.
Those sparks, however, do not a solid relationship make, as they each struggle with issues that originate from their past. However can they possibly find a middle ground to make their relationship work? There was quite a lot of self-misconception construed through much of the story which made it a journey that was fun and rewarding to watch unfold. As has been the case thus far in my SEP reading experience, we are also entertained by some interesting and enjoyable secondary characters and are allowed a glimpse into their stories as well.
In an odd and unlikely match, Dex and Torie discover what they thought to be an impossible situation develop into very much the opposite. We also are reunited with an older Dallie and a now young adult Ted Teddy which was definitely a treat. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys some great humor, just a bit of angst and a sweet happily ever after. View all 22 comments.

Gert's School for Girls. Emma is desperate to create the perfect scandal that will convince the egotistical Duke of Beddington, the main benefactor of her school, that she is not appropriate marriage material. However, while she is trying her best to convince the Duke that she will not make a satisfactory Duchess, she cannot take things too far or he will sell St. Gerts out from under her. When Emma travels to the United States to perform research for an article in the great State of Texas, Francesca arranges for Kenny to "babysit" Emma as a favor to her.
Francesca promises to intervene with her husband and convince him to lift Kenny's suspension if all goes well. Emma's strong leadership skills and bossiness combined with Kenny's perceived laziness and great sense of humor makes this a fun read. Five pages into this delightful book I realized I would not be able to put it down. When Emma first meets Kenny, she assumes he is a dim-witted driver who moonlights as a male escort. This book is full of those misunderstandings that we are all growing tired of, but they are written in SEP's witty and funny style that I truly enjoy.
SEP has the ability to take a fun, contemporary romance and put a spin on it that includes an element of sweetness that most authors cannot pull off. The ending was a little far-fetched, but the end justifies the means.
Just a side note Kenny's father arranges for Kenny's sister, Tori, a chick-lit cliche' who can out-cuss and out-talk most men to marry sexy, uber-geek Dexter O'Connor or he will cut off funding to her emu farm. I loved this subplot and thought it deserved it's own story - I wanted to read more about Dexter!

I'm about halfway through all of SEP's books and have loved them all. I've recently started listening to some on audiobook and have been extremely happy with the 3 narrators she uses. This book was narrated by Anna Fields, who does a fabulous job especially with Lady Emma's British accent. Even though most of SEP's books have an opposites attract trope, they never get stale. She has become my go-to romance author. Major fangirl!
Sep 20, Dija rated it really liked it Shelves: The romance. It is thor "Now, this is where I draw the line! It is thoroughly heart-warming and engaging and everything a great romance should be! I loved watching naive and proper Emma falling for lazy and all-American Kenny, and vice versa.
The humor. I love SEP's style, and the humor she infuses in the dialogue completely transforms the whole story. I pretty much laughed my way through the entire book. The constant plot twists.
The tiny unexpected twists that can be found in every chapter are engaging and do a wonderful job of keeping up the suspense, even if an HEA ending is a given. Adorable starring characters, and lots of scenes with previous cast members. I loved reading about Ted as a grown-up, and it was really nice catching up with Francie and Dallie as well.
Their romance is still as sweet and true as it was in their own book, and it's amazing seeing how well they've developed into a married couple. The not-so-good stuff: The ending.
It seemed highly anti-climactic and toned down after such a great book. It didn't leave me with the best feeling in my heart, and that's where the lack of 5 stars comes from. Torie and Dex. I hate Torie, and that hatred extends to Dex by association. I really couldn't feel these two and I think the book would have been much better without them. View all 36 comments.

Jun 10, Deeksha rated it it was ok. And a point comes where these books stop becoming your comfort zone and shifting to 'just ok' category, this is one of those. La mia opinione Susan Elizabeth Phillips torna in libreria con un inedito ed emozionante contemporary romance della serie Wynette, Texas.
Mentre Fancy Pants non mi aveva fatto impazzire, Impudente e Malizioso mi ha catturata all'istante, grazie soprattutto alla spiccata nota umoristica ed ai due protagonisti di questa storia ricca di fraintendimenti.
Ad affiancare Emma nella sua permanenza in Taxas troviamo Kenny Traveler, un pigro golfista texano momentaneamente in sospensione per via del suo pessimo comportamento. Come si conoscono Emma e Kenny? Grazie allo zampino di un'amica in comune, Francesca la protagonista del primo libro della serie.
Insomma, il romanzo parte proprio bene, ma continua anche meglio! Si impegna sul serio per rovinarsi la reputazione rendendo per noi la lettura particolarmente spassosa. Lady Emma e Kenny sono una coppia ben riuscita per l'intero percorso narrativo che copre il romanzo, dopo un inizio bizzarro e qualche momentaneo scivolone e fraintendimento, ci regalano una lettura romantica, dolce ed emozionante. Tra i personaggi secondari presenti non posso non nominare Ted Beaudine, che ritroviamo in questo libro ormai ventenne!
Di ragioni per leggere questo romanzo ce ne sono abbastanza direi, una bella storia romantica, ironia, personaggi che non si vorrebbe mai lasciare e lo stile unico ed emozionante di una bravissima autrice che consiglio sempre di leggere a chi ama il romance! Aspetto con ansia la sua prossima storia Punto di vista: All of that is down to Emma, though.
She's worried about becoming one of "those dear, old things" and is looking to change that with the added impetus of needing to turn an unwanted suitor off the hunt. Because her inherent decency and kindness and stability is warring with her need for change, her actions can be a bit erratic.
The thing is, SEP does an excellent job making it reasonable so I didn't feel like I was being jerked around or that it was all convenient or an excuse for moving the plot where she wanted it to go and that let me fall in love with her and never look back. It's unfortunate that Kenny is such a dead loss. He's a man-child who knows he's a man-child and couldn't care less. Which makes him manipulative and lazy and I never really cared for him at all—not least because of the damage you could see headed to Emma.
Actually, SEP pulls off another minor miracle in making that relationship reasonable enough to bypass my dislike of Kenny. He is a good fit for her, or, at least he is when he can overcome his indolence. So even as I didn't like him, I was along for the story for Emma's sake and that was enough. The thing that actually threw me out of the story the most was the stupid duke of Beddington nonsense.
That misogynistic throw-back didn't ring true from the moment he steps on the page and him being the major motivation for much of the plot never did settle well for me. I'm sorry, but that betrayal was way out of bounds. It not only trips on the "betraying you for your own good" stupidity, it also sets him up as explicitly not caring at all about Emma for herself.
Editing the stupid duke out was probably the hardest live-editing job I've ever done, but I managed well enough to keep reading. Which brings me to trying to rate this.
