I Can't Wait for... Simply the Best by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (Can't-Wait Wednesday) #CWW #WOW #booktwitter #newbooks #romancebooks #womensfiction #chicagostars #susanelizabethphillips

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. Find out more here.

I know I've been completely MIA. This holiday season has been crazy busy after a very busy first semester with my four kids and I still don't have my computer fixed, so I'm still using my son's... I completely disconnected and didn't schedule my posts. I'm so sorry if you came here to link up and didn't find a post to do so. I'm now back every week.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of my guilty pleasures and an author whose books I've been reading for years. Normally I read clean/sweet romances, but she definitely is not. What she is, however, is a fantastic writer with great characters and stories that always entertain, make me laugh, and evoke swooning. Her upcoming release is a return to the Chicago Stars, which includes some of my favorite books and characters. It's my pick this week...

Simply the Best
(A Chicago Stars Novel)
By Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Contemporary Romantic Comedy, Women's Fiction
Hardcover, Audiobook & eBook, 384 Pages
February 13, 2024 by Avon


#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips returns with the next book in her Chicago Stars series where a successful sports agent and the sister of his biggest client engage in a take-no-prisoners battle of the sexes.

Take one hard-driving sports agent…

Throw in a failed chocolatier…

And her superstar football player brother…

Add a quirky pink and purple food truck…

Then, to really screw things up, mix in a very unfortunate murder.

Brett Rivers is the hottest sports agent in the business—fast and furious, swift and deadly. Failure? Not an option.

Rory Garrett is—let’s be honest—a disaster. She has a big heart, an empty bank account, a passion for making exquisite chocolate, and a huge inferiority complex from living in the shadow of Brett’s most important client, her football legend brother.

Brett and Rory should never have met, and they absolutely, positively should never have had to deal with the consequences of one stupid, drunken night…one disastrous lie…one career in jeopardy…one missing football player…and a very dead body.

It’s going to get messy…and dangerous…and heartbreaking…and sexy. To Rory, Brett represents skewed values and a devious mind. To Brett, Rory is forbidden fruit, off limits, do not disturb, and no entry—definitely no entry.

A woman who has succeeded at nothing and a man who’s succeeded at everything confront the challenge of their lives as they struggle with themselves and each other. When it comes to love—what price are any of us willing to pay to be simply the best?
