The banter between the characters. The love scenes were hot but funny.
Molly Harper books. Not the same type of story line but the same type of character development with humor and great love scenes.
I laughed out loud when she walked in on her mom having sex with her boyfriend.
I just enjoyed the whole story and how it developed. There were parts where I laughed out loud. I also loved how the whole team started to accept her as one of the members of the team.
I will be downloading more books from this author. Hope they are all as good as this one. I looked up the authors bio and found that this is a book series. Audible please get the rest. I want to read more.
Just what I have been looking for! I finished all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips novels and was desperately in search for another author similar to her! She does such an amazing job of telling a great story with just enough true feeling/steaminess/hilarious moments! Rachel Gibson nailed it on the head! I wish the end was a bit longer. I felt as if it was rushed- but beggars can't be choosers. And she is one of the best contemporary romance novelist i've read in awhile! Couldn't put it down and can't wait to read the rest!
The story is wonderful and heartwarming and is written in Rachel Gibson's usual style of humor and the reader/listener identifying with the character. Susan Bennett really brings the characters to life.
She adds life to the characters, gives them a "tangible" presence. Really good readers bring added dimension to the characters. Awesome.
Love Romance, Suspense, strong character development a must. Authors I go to: Erik Larson (NF), Stephen King, Suzanne Brockmann, Susan Elizabeth Phillips,
Oh boy, definitely in the top third. Rachel Gibson reminds me of Susan Elizabeth Phillips in her themes and style. Phillips has much deeper character development thus longer novels. Gibson's plot and characters have a lot of poten""al
"It's Miss July, not January"
Love the sexy scenes between Savage & Faith
Yes - anytime the love leads stay away from each other I have to keep listening
This is a great listen. Go for it!
Yes I would. I listened to this story during the long drives I have to take for work daily- this story made me want to stay in the car a little longer to hear more.
The firey relationship between the two main characters.
No I haven't.
She's a great reader. Nothing abboying about her voice.
It did make me laugh and giggle at times.
The story didn't start out great. I considered switching books but I did listen a little longer and it got better and better.
Good story, good performance, light entertainment!
No character stood out
No extreme reaction
Good overall listen on my beach walk.
Researcher, editor, writer, francophone, anglophile. Started listening to audiobooks to conciliate my love of knitting and novels.
I'm not expecting anything earth shattering new with contemporary romance. What I do expect is some kind of catharsis. I didn't really identify with Duffy. The dialogue wasn't riveting. There are so many other better contemporary romance novels to chose from, I probably wouldn't recommend this one above a score of others.
What I liked most about this book was the main character. I found it very easy to sympathize with Faith, even though she had what a lot of people would think of as a scandalous past. For the most part, she comes across as a smart woman and a survivor. The other characters are equally interesting. There's the mom who acts more like a teenager, the step-son who's a prick, the assistant who turns out to be a great friend, and the hockey players who pepper the story with humor.
There were a couple of times when Ty seemed to act like a bit of a jerk, which I found annoying. However, Gibson shows that he's a good guy in the end. Overall, this book was very enjoyable, funny, and easy to listen to. I thought the narrator did a fine job.
FYI: The basic premise of this book kind of reminded me of "It Had to Be You" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
I enjoyed True Love and Other Disasters. This is my first Rachel Gibson book but it won’t be my last. If you are looking for a good chick lit read then this is it. Susan Bennett did a great job as narrator, the men were not very manly but after about an hour you get used to it and don’t even notice anymore. I only wish this book had been spun into a series like Susan Elizabeth Phillips Chicago Stars series, I would like to read more about the Seattle Hockey team.
