I have never read a book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips where I don't find characters who are enchanting

Among her other accomplishments, Susan created the sports romance. I have never read a book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips where I don't find characters who are enchanting. I usually love the main character so much that I don't want the book to end and only hope for a sequel so we can spend more time together. Never retire from writing SEP!

Not typical of Phillips but very absorbing. Well defined characters and a plot that moves the reader from exposition to conflict to resolution although not too many surprises. While the father figure seems to be so sensitive to one daughter and so insensitive to the other, still the reader accepts this blatant unfairness. Sam Gamble is very bright rebellious and futuristic young man who serves as the instrument to move the plot along. Without this character, nothing would change. Still one does not feel sympathetic to Sam and while Sam makes things happen, I find I didn't like him, but without him, the plot would not exists.

Susannah is the protagonist, and we see her grow up from young innocent child who has been abused and then terrified by an abduction. Still she manages to grow up in the love and admiration of a demanding paternal figure. This father also seems incapable of any sensitivity to his younger daughter which obviously causes her to grow up with envy and resentment but later redeems herself.

The plot revolves around the old establishment who seem to have blinders on when new ideas are presented in order to maintain the status quo...no surprise here. And then we have the unforgiving character who was left at the altar humiliated and revengeful.
All in all, I truly enjoyed these characters and they dealt their realities.
Phillips exhibits a sense of humor and a deep understanding of each of her characters some better than others but still very interesting and entertaining.

Not-the-Same
If you're looking for a typical romance book, then walk on by Hot Shot. While there's romance in the story, it plays a small part of a story rich with plot and surprising characters. Hot Shot spans years of time for the characters, and gives the reader an in-depth look at the development and maturing (for the most part) of a group of risk-takers who help begin the micro-computer age. The book was as much a Silicon Valley history lesson as much as anything, and SEP deftly weaves fictional characters among the computer giants so you begin to believe they were really there with Steve Jobs and his hacker friends.
There were a couple of weak plot points that kept this book from being a 5 star. Along with that, there were some very dark times for the heroine of the story. As my husband pointed out while I listened to the book, "Why would you want to listen to such a depressing story?" This is what makes SEP's books real, though; there are dark times in everyone's lives.

4.5 out of 5 stars! Okay .... originally this book, in it's hardcover/paperback formats, was written in 1991 so most of the book is based in the 70's and 80's which is when women were just coming into the work force (more so then before) and taking on bigger roles that others might not have been ready for them to do. Plus, this book (based on what the author writes in her 'author's note') is based prominently on fiction, about the IBM's and Apple's of that time period (how they all got started -- etc.) while set in her non-fiction world. It kept me captivated! In addition, I LOVED the relationship Susannah had with Sam, Yank, & Mitch!! However, I will admit throughout this book there are twists that I really didn't expect to see, and I wish I had some tissues with me when they did come around.

My only problem with the book was that even though I loved the relationships that were written between all of the characters, I think there should have been a bit more about Susannah and the man she is with towards the end. Since the story gets them together but you really don't get to see their relationship bloom more so then what is provided already in the book. *shrug* But that could be just me.

Anyway .... I recommend this book for those who like fiction and non-fiction type of books mixed together, along with those whom have read the other books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips before since this one is one of her first books, and is GREAT right along with the rest!!

I'm a huge Susan Elizabeth Phillips fan and this is the latest book I've read of hers. I've gone through all the Chicago Stars and Wynette series and the only other standalone book I've read was Breathing Room. I've loved them all but I have to say that this one is my favorite. Where the story turned, especially towards the end was unexpected even though the story started out like her other books. In addition, I loved the 70s and 80s depiction of Silicon Valley. It's a different world these days but it was nice to read its "humble beginnings" even if it was a worth of fiction. I actually read through the acknowledgements in the end and noted books Susan used as references.

I definitely recommend this book. Honestly, I recommend all her books but definitely this one!
