It Must Be Love | [Rachel Gibson]

It Must Be Love

Undercover cop Joe Shanahan's bad luck hit bottom the morning he stared up into the face of sexy suspect Gabrielle Breedlove. She'd blown his cover - brought him down with a can of hairspray - and now his new assignment was to pose as her boyfriend. But spending as much time as possible with the utterly irresistible new-age beauty caused unexpected complications. To make matters worse, his matchmaking sisters are picking out china patterns. Joe's brooding good looks and T-shirt-straining muscles might be easy on the eyes, but how could Gabrielle be attracted to a straight-laced detective who's determined to find evidence to arrest her?

    I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...

    "You Will Love This Book!"

    "It Must Be Love", by Rachel Gibson is the first book in a while that I absolutely LOVED! It was a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience, as Rebecca Tripp did a great job narrating. The voices were easily distinguishable; the characters were developed well; and it was written with the talent of an author who knows how to engage her reader, encouraging a relationship with her characters.
    Definitely Credit Worthy!! Get ready to have some fun!

    "Cute Story"

    What a kick! Really enjoyed this book as it's a laugh out loud story. I got a kick out of the parrot, and kooky characters. Rachel Gibson has become one of my favorite author's. I will continue to look forward to seeing more of her books on audio.

    "I was expecting more..."

    Rachel Gibson is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are funny and usually full of an intense romance. This one did not live up to what I expect from her stories. Yes it was funny but the chemistry between the Joe and Gabrielle was not all that. It didn't help that the narrator didn't really add emotion or made the story come alive like others can. It's a fun cute story but not heart melting like her hockey series.

    "Looked forward to a new story from R. Gibson"

    I enjoyed this book. The characters were likeable, or unlikeably as the case maybe. The narrator, at first I thought she was incredible but other times it seemed she was reading it for the first time. I really expect a better story from Ms. Gibson.

    "Fun, Off Beat, and only a bit of drag"

    I have really enjoyed Rachel Gibson's books recently- and i seem to have her next one pre-ordered before I finish the last. So i'm so excited that Audible keeps dishing them out- because i can't enough! My favorites so far are the hockey series- and the dating mishaps- so when i came across It Must Be Love, I was thoroughly excited! It only let me down....slightly. Rebecca Tripp's narration leaves a bit to be desired- although definitely not a bad narrator! I just couldn't get into the voo-doo stuff of the main character. ALOT of different scenes made me laugh out loud though (jumping off the balcony!). So as i look back- It was definitely credit worthy- although a far shot from my favorite. I felt like the end just kept dragging on, and I was ready for some resolution!!

    Story
    ""I will punt you like a football""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    this is a pure core romance with lots of great fun dialogue. If you want a change from the fifty shades of grey type stories, Rachel Gibson is your new author. She has written these books with fun and humor as the under tone


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    our hero of course, his opening line when he faces off the goose, made me bark out with laughter on the sample.


    What three words best describe Rebecca Tripp’s performance?

    she is not my favorite, but the dialogue made up for it. Gads, if Karen White had read this story, wow, it would blow off the charts


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I need some heavy laughter, after listening to some dark material. I went hunting and found
    some listeners who's reviews lead me to RG books.


    Any additional comments?

    I have purchased all with the exception on Tanya Elby reader. Unless she got a whole lot better than her performance of Exclusive, sandra brown. (my all time fave book, which she ruined for me) I did get all on sales...so I can afford to laugh out loud

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Cute Story"

    This is a cute story. It's not as humorous as I imagined it would be and the material is dated. It's not a book I would want to use a credit on but rather get on sale.
