A Susan Elizabeth Phillips book is always cause for celebration but with First Star I See Tonight readers have a double reason to celebrate— a new book, and this book is a return to her beloved Chicago Stars football team.
Now all of Phillips’ heroes are special, but her Chicago Star heroes are larger than life. They are the embodiment of our biggest fantasies. Full of swagger, machismo, part down-home county boy, and part debonair sophistication. They are bossy, stubborn and misguided with a tendency to believe their own press. But then again, it’s only natural that they should, because they have proven they’re the best of the best. They’re men’s men – having demonstrated on the field and in business their strength, endurance and grit. Women are attracted to them like bees to honey. Part of it, of course, is the evolutionary attraction that women have for a strong warrior and good provider. But it more than that....much more. Phillips entices us with heroes that can be disarmingly charming and genuine kind—when it suits them! Of course it’s a given that they as handsome as sin... Sigh—anyone one of them could eat crackers in our bed.
