Award–winner and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Gibson's smart, sassy contemporary romances are making her one of the genre's fastest rising stars.
Anyone who has ever salivated over a sports pro or mooned after a movie star will relish this fanciful romance between brainy Seattle Times columnist Jane Alcott and hockey player Luc Martineau. Luc, nicknamed Lucky for his ability to score with women and keep his opponents from scoring on the ice, is less than thrilled to hear that Jane will be reporting on the team's games and digging into his unsavory past. Still, he can't help feeling attracted to the pint-sized writer, despite her drab clothes and unfortunate profession. For Jane, the assignment is the perfect opportunity to stop writing fluff and break into serious reporting. But following the progression of the puck turns out to be less challenging than getting the players to talk, particularly Luc, whose lusty looks make her want to ditch her black clothes and wear red. The two eventually wind up in bed together, but Luc's fear of commitment and Jane's fear of abandonment may keep them from taking the next step. Readers will find themselves cheering for the charming couple with the fervor of frenzied hockey fans. Like most fairy tales, this one involves an unlikely transformation (a red dress turns plain Jane into a seductress), but the minor contrivance won't dim readers' enjoyment of this witty, warm-hearted tale.

Loved it 👍👍
The whole Chinoocks Hockey team series is amazing!
Loved, loved, loved this book. Rachel Gibson is just top notch when it comes to emotional, authentic, sexy romances. She rarely misses a step. I do wonder why some reviewers find it necessary to punish the author with a low rating when something goes wrong with the distributor getting them their books. Makes zero sense to me. Why not write to Apple and complain as that's where the problem lies.
