What happens in Vegas... doesn't always stay there.
Autumn Haven's Las Vegas "to-do" list said to catch a show and play the slots—not wake up married to a sexy jerk like Sam LeClaire. The first moment she saw him eyeing her like a luscious piece of the dessert buffet, her usually responsible self told her to run. And she did—right into the wildest fantasy weekend of her life. But Monday morning jolted her back to reality, and before she could say "pass the coffee", Sam was gone.
Now a successful wedding planner, Autumn hasn't clapped eyes on the heartbreaking hockey superstar for over two years... until she organizes his teammate's "Special Day", when Sam makes a big play to pick up where he left off! But she has vowed any man of hers plays for keeps. Is Sam the man for her - or does she banish him to the sin bin forever?

I loved this book. It is a great ending to the Chinooks Hockey Team Series. I also listened to TRUE LOVE AND OTHER DISASTERS. Now I would love to listen to the rest of the series, and any other books by Rachel Gibson. Please audible.com, get the rest of her books!
This was a great surprise ! enjoyed every minute of it, and so well narrated.
Seemed so real to life with the names and places in the book.
It took me awhile to get this book, I don't know why except I haven't listened to any books by this author. Big mistake. This is a great book, one that has a wonderful ending. I wish fathers that have left children thinking "MOM'S" are all they(the children) need, would read this book.
Yes. It is a good light listen. Great for commuting.
The performance was very good.
Kathe is great for this type of book. He tone was dead on.
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
I've listened to all of Rachel Gibson's books. I wish Audible would release more of her stories. She is great at keeping the story moving along with fun characters. In this audio, Sam is a reformed a-hole and of course gorgeous. Autumn is the good girl who fell for the bad boy. The dialogue is fun and fast. I've found all of Rachel Gibson's books to be like this. Her books are predictable and totally enjoyable. I'm so exhausted at the end of the day that I love to find books that
Live, love, laugh...
I thoroughly dislike when producers change the narrator in a series, especially when the narrator was as good as Susan Bennett. The narrator really made the story less enjoyable. And worst of all Kathe Mazur did not listen to the previous books because she mispronounced the last name Savage and the city of Medina. The story was just ok. The ending was a bit rushed. It had many similarities to the first book in the series Simply Irresistible (which was a lot better).
This is book six in the Chinoocks Hockey Team series. Each book can be read as a stand alone but in case you like to follow series in order it goes like this:
- Simply Irresistible (not available as audiobook) which is one of my favorites in the series.
- See Jane Run (not available as audiobook)
- The problem with Valentine's Day (not available as audiobook)
- True Love and other disasters (audiobook) A 4 star+ listen.
- Nothing but Trouble (audiobook) (my personal favorite)
- Any Man of mine
I would love to listen to future additions to the series but with Susan Bennett as the narrator.
First time reading Rachel Gibson, but will certainly will read more. I absolutely love romance stories and am able to listen to at least three a week.
I got tired of hearing some of the same phrases over again as if the author either forgot that she had already said that, she couldn't think of any thing else to say, our she didn't trust the readers to remember some of the important ideas she was trying to get across.
The story is moderately entertaining, but nothing special.
This is the second book I have listened to from the Chinooks series by this author. This is not nearly as good as the first one I listened to (True Love and Other Disaster #4 in the series). The narrator was SO bad it was difficult to listen to. She also mispronounced the name of a character from book #4...no big deal except in the previous book they specifically took the time to explain how to pronounce the name (Savage) correclty. Maybe worth a listen if you catch in on-sale, but don't pay full price.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
A nice light read. Which is what I needed after so many heavy hitters. Perfect for a hot summer day by the pool.
