Another wonderful story by Phillips, this one set mostly in Chicago. Phoebe's father, though estranged from her at his death, leaves her as owner of a football team - temporarily -- unless the team can win the Super Bowl! Impossible? Probably, but she has a contentious, stubborn and gorgeous new coach and a brilliant general manager. And Phoebe, who everyone sees as a super-bimbo, does have hidden talent, and finally finds the courage to not run away from the challenge. Great read!

"It Had To Be You" is my favorite book by S.E.P. It is also the first book in her Chicago Stars football team series. Phoebe Somerville is the sexy and outrageous (like Marilyn Monroe) daughter of Bert Somerville, owner of the Stars. After Bert's death, Phoebe learns, to her surprise, that she inherited the team with the stipulation that she can retain ownership if they win the championship. If they loose, the team ownership will be passed on to her obnoxious cousin, Reed Chandler. This is Phoebe's wake-up call. Everyone considered her to be a bimbo. Even her father thought she was a failure. But with the help of General Manager Ron McDermitt, she proves to be more than capable to run the organization.
Dan Calebo, head coach of the Stars, is everything Phoebe despises--a sexist jock with a one track mind. Dan thinks she is a meddling bimbo. Phoebe and Dan are both stubborn and sparks fly between these two from the start. Before long, there is more at stake than just winning the championship.

This was my first SEP novel and to date it is my favorite of all her work. The story will make you laugh, cry, cheer and leave you with a well-satisfied feeling. You don't have to be a fan of football to enjoy this wonderful story.

My favorite by Phillips, this book has it all from the initial confrontation to the end. Lots of sexual tension here, loads of laughs, a chilling moment of self-sacrifice and a satisfying resolution. Sex and romanoe. Who could ask for anything more?

Part of the series about the Chicago Stars football team. I liked this series because it had intelligent, strong, independent women.
