2.0 out of 5 stars Worst SEP Novel I've Read 25 February 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All SEP books follow the same sort of format. You know you're going to read something where the main characters fight a lot at the beginning, there will be some public spectacle, and the love interests exemplify "opposites attract." However, this book also took all of the worst aspects of her writing and enhanced them. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY DOES NO ONE CARE THAT HE TRICKED HER INTO GETTING A TATTOO OF HIS NAME AND A FLAG?! Everyone just casually mentions it like it's this hideous, but otherwise blase thing, then it's completely shrugged off. That is not only borderline, if not flat out illegal, but doesn't fit with her character at all. She is supposed to be a naturally "respectable" type that considers tattoos something that displays questionable choices. It makes absolutely no sense for her to hardly react to this. Also, he had absolutely no motivation to do it in the first place. I thought that he was getting her drunk so that he could trick her into missing her appointment, considering he tried to tell her not to get one in the first place. Instead, he conned the woman he (at that point) considered worth a temporary fling into getting a permanent etching of his name and country on her arm? That's really lazy writing. The author clearly just wanted a big event to happen and didn't bother thinking of one that actually fit the characters she'd created.

Once I managed to get over the bizarre tattoo incident, I was left with a really lackluster romance. The main character psychoanalyses the Kenny for all of their "bonding" moments and he just agrees with it all for some inexplicable reason (because obviously she is 100% correct about everything including his actions/motivations from when he was a kid despite knowing him less than a week) then they have sex. This whole interaction was unnecessary and, coupled with Dexter and Torie's relationship, it comes across like the author doesn't believe two people can be equals in a relationship. One of them has to know better than the other one. Someone being a know it all is a character flaw, but in Lady Be Good, know-it-alls are treated as more intelligent, or observant, because they are always right.

Then we get to the typical "guy must grovel for the heroine's forgiveness" section of the novel. This happens in all of her novels, and feels more tedious each time I read it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, Sweet and Fuill of Heart 16 August 2014
By Sheila M - Published on

LADY BE GOOD is the second book in the Wynette, Texas series. It is the story of Lady Emma Wells-Finch who has come from England to Texas to do research and also to ruin her very proper reputation in order to avoid a marriage that she doesn't want. She meets Kenny Traveler, playboy, hothead and pro golfer. Kenny has been suspended from the pro golf tour and hopes to restore his status by doing the favor of chauffeuring Emma around. The two are striking sparks off of one another immediately.

The love story here is sweet and funny. While there are some serious issues, this is one of the SEP books that is more lighthearted than serious. The humor takes precedence here. Emma is so determined to make herself disreputable. She wants a tattoo; she's drinking too much, flirting with men, buying tabloid magazines and condoms. At the same time, she is driving Kenny crazy because she is bossy and stubborn. I like the story because she has Kenny all twisted and he can't figure out why.

As one might expect with a SEP romance, there is also a secondary romance dealing with Kenny's sister. Kenny has a messed up family and part of the resolution of the book is putting this family to rights again.

For fans of the first book in the series, FANCY PANTS, there are appearances by Francesca and Dallie and their son Ted.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another good one! 9 March 2013

The premise of this book is ridiculous... and I just love it! Prim and proper English lady goes to Texas to dispose of her good image to escape being forcefully married to a creepy (he was SOOOOO disturbingly nasty) duke. What she finds is a town, Wynette, full of colorful and wacky inhabitants, but none as frustrating and irresistible as the lazy but sexy golfer (slash “freelance gigolo”) Kenny.

As with other SEP books, the humor took the number one spot on what made this story good. The hilarious banter, the spot-on one liners, the laugh out loud situations, ... I could go on an on. Here are some scenes that definitely go to my hall of fame: when Emma buys ridiculous things from the pharmacy because she thinks the duke’s lackey is watching and the subsequent conversation with Kenny regarding those items, Kenny explaining what his “fee” includes and what not, anytime Kenny mentions the Antichrist, Tories emus, etc.

The wide cast of characters is another thing I appreciate about SEP books and, again, we meet all sorts of colorful characters, from respectable citizens to total oddballs. The romance was also sweet and awkwardly cute, even tough the end result and the latter quarter of the book was a slight letdown. Still, Emma and Kenny were like a couple of kindergarten kids who didn’t know yet that you can actually like each other without any agenda or pulling the others braids.

The secondary romance was kind of halfway there, I didn’t completely feel it, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Even tough, I would usually dislike a character such as Torie (spoiled, slightly vain, expert in cussing, too in-your-face), in this book I found her flawed and slightly messed up yet charming. Dexter was a stud in geek’s clothes. Was I the only one who notices that he was kind of kinky?


As much as I liked this book, I had a hard time warming up to Emma. I appreciated that she had quite a distinct personality with her own arsenal of quirks, but I couldn’t help thinking her extremely selfish. Yes, I did sympathies with her predicament and understood that she was tolerating everything for her beloved school, but the way she turned the already over the top lives of specific Wynette’s residents totally upside-down, causing mayhem and misunderstandings to everyone she saw as having a part in her escaping the clutches of the evil duke and her reputation, was too careless. It made for some hilarious situations and the cause was noble, but in most cases she didn’t really take into account what her victory might mean for the pawn in her plan. And a couple consequences weren’t really justifiable. Having said that, Emma was a refreshing heroine, no guesses, however, on who will wear the pants in her and Kenny’s relationship, Emma holds the reigns and I don’t think Kenny will mind being in the “service” of this composed and well-mannered English rose with an impeccable reputation (well not anymore when Wynette is through with her but it was dull reputation anyway) for the rest of his life.

Kenny was sexy talented, smart and full of potential, unfortunately, he didn’t like to show that part of himself outside of golf, instead he relished being this lazy and easygoing hunk. I adored Kenny, he was fun, wicked and misunderstood, but oh so swoony .


Another win for me from SEP, not that I was expecting anything less. I enjoyed it less than other books I’ve read from her, but this was a great romantic and hilarious read and I recommend it fully.

Phillips has a very witty and laugh out loud sense of humor. She builds a plot around too very unlikely characters who seem to be quite opposite in every way except somehow they attract each other. She is strait-laced English head mistress of school. She is pursued by a corpulent self important duke who decides she will become his wife whether she wants to not....she flees to Texas. And meets a champion drop dead gorgeous golf pro with a lot of baggage. Game on!

Loved this book, yet another hit by my new favourite author, Susan Elizabeth Phillips... She does these great big gorgeous heroes, who also have a huge amount of baggage, but who manage to muddle their way through a relationship with her interesting, unique and loveable heroines. I love the depth, how she doesn't just give lip service to a character's issue, she actually works through it in the book, and it becomes part of the solution that the couple needs work out before they can find true love. Anyway, Lady Emma, the upper crust English lady looking to ruin her reputation and Kenny, the laidback cowboy golf champion are fantastic characters, I fell in love with both of them, and loved every minute of their journey.
