I thought this book was cute, but I think it tried really hard to be one of those romance novels that's super passionate, but it didn't quite get there. The first part of the story is really slow--like alright, we get that this is a forbidden romance. I really enjoy hockey, and I was looking for there to be more in the way of describing some of the game and how a team manager works, but I guess that wasn't really the point. You never know about how Faith got a hold of taking care of the team after Virgil dies, just that she's interested in Ty.
Overall, I think this story has a lot of potential, but could've panned out a bit more besides the romance part of it. I think it'd make a great film adaptation. The narration is pretty good. I like how Susan Bennett expresses worry/shock--it fits what I think the character sounds like.
Glad I got this book on sale.
I'll probably listen to this one again!
Bella Andre's books.
I laughed, teared up, and got all hot and bothered from this book.
Bought this book on the $4.95 special and lurrrrved listening to it!! The narrator was great. The writing was witty, light hearted and steamy at times. I would highly recommend this book!
I loved this! It was a fun story. Faith, a good-hearted former stripper inherits a hockey team from her late rich husband. Ty Savage, the team captain, isn't happy about it. The friction, tension and attraction between the two eventually leads to true love. This was an easy listen, and the humor and character profiles were great. I don't know why, but I could not stop picturing Cameron Diaz and Channing Tatum in these roles, which made it even that much more fun. It would make a great movie someday... (grin).
I listen to a lot of audio books because I travel and thought this was very light and entertaining. I like to listen to chick lit or romance and I thought this was very much in line with those.
Sexy, tense and fun.
I loved Savage! His growling and heated looks fit him to a tee on and off the ice. He's certainly the beast to Faith's beauty.
Susan Bennett's voice characterizations were dead on. She brought to life the anxiety of Faith's centerfold-turned-hockey team owner through Rachel Gibson's clever words. Both ladies quickly became my new favorites.
Rachel Gibson had my skin itching and heart racing waiting for these two secret lovers to get caught. I loved the humor in her writing and the sexual tension she created.
When I finished with this book I wanted more!
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.
