    1. Oh ain't she sweetWell see her walking down that streetYes I ask you very confidentiallyAin't she sweet? Enemies to lovers. Trying to ruin someone's life is incredibly sexy.

    2. 5 Stars! A book you can sink your teeth into. It consumed me. In no way did I think these characters could endear themselves to me, particularly Sugar Beth, but much to my surprise not only did I like them, I was rooting for a good outcome!No one, I mean no one, can write snarky witty dialogue like SEP can, and how she managed to make me like some of these characters is beyond my thinking at the moment. I don’t even know where to start with this one, but in the beginning, I just couldn’t see [...]

    3. Have you ever experienced reading and enjoying it, until the author says something, which is quite unforgiveable that it destroyed almost everything?Well, I did. Susan Elizabeth Phillips had done that mistake.One of the characters of the book described a pug, UGLY. I love pugs.How can this pug be ugly?Pugsley, my pet dog, God bless his soul, is really adorable. How could anyone call him ugly? And now, Pugsley is crying.But despite my seething anger, I continued on, chanting She called a pug ugly [...]

    4. ★★★½I've never been around to attend my high school reunions when they pop up, but sometimes I wish I could go just to see how far some of those wannabe socialites have fallen from their high horse. I know it's kind of mean, but let's just say my school years were not kind. In Ain't She Sweet, a whole town is granted this satisfaction. When the once powerful and cutthroat Sugar Carey comes home with her tail between her legs, all the roles are suddenly reversed. No one likes her anymore, [...]

    5. Keeping this one short and sweet! ❤Most of you already know that Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one my most favorite authors. I had gone on a binge not too long ago and read through quite a few of her books, falling in love with most all of them. I had saved a few for my inevitable need for a little of the magic she so easily delivers with her writing.Ain't She Sweet gave me that magic and it was a fabulous read. It was SEP telling a story in her true form. Giving us two main characters that were [...]

    6. Review written June 16, 20163.8 Stars - An ironic, emotional and entertaining black sheep returner romance in great SEP style'Ain't She Sweet?', a standalone (non series) romance from 2004 written by one of my absolutely most admired and beloved m/f romance authors in this traditional "light & nice" contemporary genre. Always much joy and heart.So even this time.A nearly perfect SEP story, but for me, a few weaknesses in the audiobook edition. Thus, a lower rating ranking this time. — I li [...]

    7. It is six o'clock in the morning. I have no reason to be up right now except for the fact that finishing this book gave me the worst night's sleep I've had in a long time. Man this book bothered me! (Please excuse the following rant, I really need to get this out of my system!!!)First off, I love SEP, and I have a habit of finishing her books in one sitting because of how good they are. This time I finished the book in one sitting because I was so frustrated I couldn't bear to go to bed with it [...]

    8. SEP nunca decepciona.La historia entre Sugar Beth y Winnie me ha encantado desde el principio. Y me encanta que Colin sea un fanático de la comida sana y orgánica!!! Para leer cuando necesitas a SEP ;)

    9. I loved this bookexcept for the moments I hated it.This review is for the audiobook version. The narrator did a fantastic job on everything except for the hero's voice. It was awful. It sounded like some eighty year old British guy exaggeration. It was terrible So unsexy that it really ruined the romance aspect for me. Oddly enough, she did a fantastic job at all of the rest of the voices. Inflection and accents and everything were just spot on. Aside from narration, this book was one of SEP's t [...]

    10. The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But fifteen years have passed, and life has taught Sugar Beth its toughest lessons. Now she's come home—broke, desperate, and too proud to show itLiked this one a lot. Had read it years ago but had sort of forgotten what it was about. Sugar Beth was such a strong c [...]

    11. Buddy read with Gavin(though it was not planned as such ^_^)4.5 STARSSo very, very funny! Strong and well-developed heroine and hero. Fully fleshed out secondary characters. Sarcastic to the bone and at the same time wildly romantic. The smoothest change of POVs I've read in a very long time. Sensual sex scenes. Southern. :)You can see that I enjoyed this a lot. It was a bit formulaic but I've always loved the enemies to lovers trope and here it was executed in a very believable and great way.I [...]

    12. I once heard another author say they struggled for years to read this Susan Elizabeth Phillips book because they couldn’t imagine enjoying a book about a heroine named Sugar Beth. I know how they feel! Every time I picked it up I thought, mmm, maybe laterOh my god. Really!!! This is one of those rare books that I spent the entire time thinking I WISH I’D WRITTEN THIS!!! This with a heroine who was the most popular girl in town, stepping on anyone who got in her path along the way, who now do [...]

    13. The contemporary romance genre is not one of my favorites, but if there was more books like Ain't She Sweet then it would be! This was a surprisingly fast paced and fun romance. I loved the witty dialogue, the sarcastic humor, and the complicated characters. Sugar Beth was a great character and totally unlike any other I've ever encountered. She was strong, tough, and cynical, but not afraid to admit that she had made some mistakes in her younger days! Her relationship with the eccentric English [...]

    14. First: I listened to this as an audiobook, and I’m going to evaluate the book separately from the reading.The book is, for my money, probably going to be my favorite Susan Elizabeth Phillips. It’s funny and sweet, but it’s also quite thoughtful. It’s a twist on Cinderella and her stepsister — because you don’t know which one is which, and by the end, you’re still debating. In a good way. Can they both be Cinderella, with dashes of stepsister? Pretty much, because the main female ch [...]

    15. Qué preciosidad!! Me ha encantado!! He llorado en algunos momentos. Recomendadísimo ❤️

    16. "She rolled her eyes, back in the game. “Are you telling me that little bit of guilt is all it takes to make you tuck your tail between your legs? And you call yourself a man.”He’d been reading too much Victorian erotica because he wanted to bend her over a chair and . . . do something quite nasty.""Did you scare her? I swear, Colin, if you said one thing to upset her . . .”He slapped a foil-covered casserole on the counter. “Why would I upset her when I was conserving my energy to ups [...]

    17. 4,5. Simplemente genial. Poco más puede decir. Fan total e incondicional de esta SEP que algunas veces no se la encuentra en sus otros libros.

    18. Had a hard time getting into the story. I'm DNFing for now but I might return to it later.

    19. Cuando empecé este libro me costó meterme en la historia, tenía un aire algo más anticuado a lo que estoy acostumbrada últimamente, hasta que me fijé que es de 2005, así que totalmente comprensible. Luego llegó un momento en que sin darme cuenta estaba enganchadísima como me pasa siempre con esta mujer y que la risa se mezcla con unos personajes ingeniosos y una trama potente para convertirse en otra fantástica historia de SEP. me he propuesto leerme uno de sus libros cada mes durante [...]

    20. La Phillips è tornata! E in grande stile devo dire!La storia di Sugar Beth è stata un alternarsi di ricordi del passato e costruzione del futuro, nonché uno splendido (e ironico) viaggio tra perdono e vendetta. Tutti ricordano Sugar Beth. Lei era la bellissima e viziatissima figlia dell’uomo più ricco del paese, era la regina della scuola, colei che deteneva ogni sorta di potere. Era una ragazzina subdola e sciocca troppo preoccupata dell’apparenza per soffermarsi sulle azione e capire i [...]

    21. This is my first SEP book and I had to admit it might just be my last. Where shall I begin? First of all I couldn't stand the heroine's name. It was infuriating. Once I got past that, I was disturbed at the fact that the people of this town were angry at her for childish reasons. There was her so called friends who held a huge grudge because she left town. I mean are you kidding? Let it go! She moved out of townbody said she was entitled to stay there forever. It was like they lost their Queen B [...]

    22. ~3.5 stars~This was no where near my favorite Susan Elizabeth Phillips read but it still made for a pretty sweet romantic read. the heroine was a total bitch but I felt she redeemed herself.

    23. Delightful. Nice, fun story.I usually don't like books if I don't like the heroine. However, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed reading about this awful, bad, bad girl Sugar Beth. She did terrible things to others when she was young. She tortured Winnie with humiliation and dumped her boyfriend Ryan. She then ruined her own life with poor choices. But things changed later. She had a fighting, bickering relationship with Colin which was fun to see. Later in the book, there were a couple of sur [...]

    24. What a surprisingly delightful book this was. I loved the banter between Colin and Sugar Beth. It always put a smile on my face. Plus the narrator of the audiobook did a great job. Final rating 4.5 stars but rounded up to 5 :)

    25. This was a complete delight from start to finish. Francis Elizabeth (who everybody calls Sugar Beth because this is the South, apparently) was a very rich and entitled teen in a very small town. Her dad was the most important businessman and her mom the most important social director. For the most part, it seems her rule was strict though benevolent, but with two exceptions. The first is (view spoiler)[her half-sister (hide spoiler)] Winnie Davis. Sugar Beth takes every opportunity to isolate, p [...]
