When millionaire Dean Robillard meets Blue Bailey, she couldn't be more down on her luck; her ex has stolen all her money and she's got no place to go. A football hero, Dean is taking a holiday while recovering from a career-threatening injury. He'd planned a solo road trip to get his head together. The last thing he needs is a damsel in distress tagging along for the ride. However, despite Dean's misgivings the two find themselves thrown together and soon Blue has moved into his home and is merrily turning his world upside down. Their attraction is mutual but can their relationship really survive when the only other thing they have in common is their distrust of love?
This is my first SE Phillips book and now I'm looking for all the Chicago Stars books. The character interaction was very interesting and it had lots of funny moments. Fun read!

Funny and Witty
Romantic and Charming. This book has it all. This since of being loved and yet being able to be yourself in a world all your own. You must be able to challenge yourself in a world before you can the world head on, but this girl does it all. She is able to do this in in one fine sweep. She is fun loving, She fines the right guy, and she knows how to lure him, but yet she makes him come to her, so the plot is romantic, and charming with just enough girlishness in it to make you know that there is a little still left in all of us. you will enjoy the book. And I give this book a 10 book over all. Happy reading I did. I read it 7 times that is how much I enjoyed it!

I have read most of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and have enjoyed her books. A number of them I have read multiple times. Her newest addition, Natural Born Charmer, is just as funny, witty, and smooth to read. She creates interesting and thought provoking characters. A great summer read.

SEP has done it again. She has written one of the best ( last ) books of the series Chicago Stars. Dean and Blue are perfect for each other in every way but they both have to learn to trust in order to love. They along with a great secondary cast take you on a roller coaster ride and you want to go on it again and again.
Dean is the guy every girl dream of ...
Blue is the girl that most guys rather have as a friend ...
Together they are simply ' Natural Born Charmers' and perfect!

Next to "Ain't She Sweet" this is the most hilarious book I have read. Again, her dialogue is witting and quick. I loved it!
Publishers Weekly, 2007-04-30 Veteran narrator Anna Fields (whose real name was Kate Fleming) died recently, and this audiobook-one of her final performances-shows just what a loss her passing is to the industry. This quirky romance full of eccentric, colorful characters is a perfect showcase for her talent. She creates distinctive, believable voices that bring the characters to life: the slow, deep drawl of football star Dean Robillard and the feisty, sarcastic tone of Blue Bailey, the down-on-her-luck wanderer he picks up on the road. There's also the timid, innocent, anxious-to-please quaver of 11-year-old Riley, whose irresponsible rock star dad also fathered Dean, and the crotchety, elderly, Brooklyn-tinged voice of Nina, the mean-spirited old woman who owns the small town they all end up in. Field's wonderful performance elevates the material and makes this romance even more entertaining on audio than it is in print. Simultaneous release with the Morrow hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 6).

Publishers Weekly, 2006-11-06 In this latest installment in Phillips's romance series starring the Chicago Stars football players (This Heart of Mine; Nobody's Baby but Mine), the bestselling novelist delivers a love story wrought with delicious sexual tension and charged banter. When debonair starting quarterback Dean Robillard, on a soul-searching road trip after a serious shoulder injury, happens across Blue Bailey, walking alongside the road wearing a beaver costume, he stops to help her. Blue is far from a Barbie-esque football groupie, but broke and stranded, she needs both a ride and a job, and the football all-star (driving a sexy Aston Martin) poses an interesting opportunity. As the two travel from Colorado to Dean's new farmhouse in east Tennessee, Blue resists his advances, and both athlete and vagabond struggle with deeply rooted trust and familial issues that are soon exacerbated by the unexpected presence of Dean's mother at the farm. While the verbal sparring in this textbook case of opposites attracting feels stagy at first, the rough edges come together in an alluring way. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
