Who wouldn’t adore a novel about the America’s most attractive wide receiver falling in love with a young woman dressed in nothing but a simple beaver suit? The star, Dean, unhappy with his life, sets off on a cross-country trip that will hopefully help him identify what has gone wrong. When he hits a lonely stretch of Colorado highway, he spies Blue Bailey – aka: beaver suit girl. Dean offers her a lift, she begrudgingly agrees, and it is here that their peculiar romance blossoms.
As the summer progresses, Blue, a wandering portrait artist, and Dean play a high-stakes game, fighting themselves and each other for a chance to have it all. One cannot help but love the old-ball couple and their deeply real romantic courtship.
"Natural Born Charmer" is for anyone who loves an easy yet thoroughly engaging and enjoyable read. Susan Phillips has a way of drawing you in and carrying you through the great story of Blue and Dean.
