The Great Escape

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Perennial New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips now provides her fans with The Great Escape from ordinary women’s romantic fiction.

One of today’s most beloved writers, the incomparable Phillips follows up her utterly beguiling hit, Call Me Irresistible (“Phillips at her very best. Romantic, funny, sexy, and poignant” —Kristin Hannah) with a sequel that’s equally impossible to resist. Returning in The Great Escape are some of Phillips’s most adored characters, including headstrong, impetuous ex-president’s daughter, Lucy Jorik, who’s just abandoned her fiancé, Ted “Mr. Irresistible” Beaudine, at the altar. Now she’s looking for adventure—and perhaps a little romance—embarking on a wild and hilariously unpredictable road trip that begins on the back of a rather menacing-looking stranger’s motorcycle. The winner of more Favorite Book of the Year Awards than any other romance author, including Nora Roberts, Susan Elizabeth Phillips offers her fans an Escape to remember, and they’ll certainly want to come back for more!

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 10, 2012 – Phillips (Call Me Irresistible) reintroduces Lucy Jorikin in this delightful, if initially somewhat slow, romance. As a former U.S. president's adopted daughter, Lucy feels the pressure to be perfect. But when Lucy runs out on the perfect man, Ted Beaudine, on the day of her wedding, she shows that she wants something else. Throwing caution to the wind, she accepts a ride on the back of a motorcycle from a menacing-looking stranger nicknamed "Panda." Lucy isn't quite ready to face her family, and the rest of the world, again, and her growing attraction to the grizzled biker just makes it easier to keep her real life on hold. After a secret about Panda comes out, however, Lucy realizes that escaping her too-perfect life will be harder than it seemed. Readers may be impatient during the beginning and unconvinced by aspects of the ending, but with two such hot leads, a few flaws can easily be overlooked.

Customer Reviews

The great escape

This is my first time reading this author and I really disliked this book. Lucy was such a hypocritical witch and he was stupid for even wanting her. She did a lot of lecturing about him being a coward, running away, and not consulting her. She was the one who ran out on her wedding and stayed away from her family. Though it took me awhile, I finally made it to the end and wished I had never made myself finish this book. A complete waste!

Not the Best Susan Elizabeth Phillips Book

This book is well written and is a page turner, but what happened to Susan Elizabeth Phillips' sex scenes in this romance novel? I missed it completely and I am very disappointed!

Loved It

Loved this book as much as I've loved all of the other Phillips books. Very real and completely believable. She's very good at what she does which as a writer makes her fanfrickingtastic.
