Best-selling author Rachel Gibson is acclaimed for her quick-witted and endearing romances. True Love and Other Disasters begins as the Seattle Chinooks hockey team owner dies, bequeathing the team to his young widow, Faith. Faith is determined to be taken seriously as the owner, and she’s not going to let anyone—especially dreamy star player Ty Savage—get in her way.

    Story
    "Canucks NOT canooks!!!"

    this story has a lot of female drama in it. A good deal of explicit sex and sex talk. and the narrator does not know how Canadians use "eh". She also mispronounced the name of the Vancouver Canucks. It rhymes with luck, shuck, huck, muck etc. It does not rhyme with crook. Also Canadians add "eh" to the last word in the sentence, no pause. for ex. "It's been a good runeh?" or "come in out of the coldeh?" turning the sentence into a question. NO PAUSE!!! other than getting unreasonably irritated at that, the book was okay. Story a bit weak, it's a typical romance. If that is what you are looking for that's what you are getting.

    Story
    "A good story but...."

    Every voice sounds exactly the same. It was a little off putting hearing these huge masculine hockey players (with beards), and all of them sound like a soft voice female or little boys. Her version of the Canadian accent was just putting the word (aye) in a sentence every now and then. She doesn't have a bad voice. I would just suggest that they should have done a narrative collaboration with a male to narrate for the men or found a different woman who knows how to play dual roles.

    "book hog"

    wow I bought this thinking it might MIGHT help me through a boring day. Wow it was everything I really was looking for but didn't expect. The only thing that would have made this audio better for me would be different narrations. The best 2 would be from they hockey series bound, captive, drive and at any price. I think those two she be married are required to to be a set on any book. I heard each separate or with others, yet together they made a really good great.

    "Feel good romance well written and performed"

    All of Rachel Gibson's books are decent, but some of them have a special magic to them. I consider this one to be one of the really good ones. I don't know if it was the characters themselves that I liked, their situations or the little bit of humor mixed in with this story but True Love and Other Disasters ended with me feeling really good about this book, performance and purchase.

    I am a reader, what can I say. I love to read; listening even more so because I can do other things while I read. Wish that we're my job!!

    "Very cute"

    Enjoyed it very much. Although there was a touch of SEP, it still was a good story in its own right. I did run hot and cold for the reader, liked the reading very much one moment not so much the next. I will look for other books by this author, worth a second listen.

    "VT. FAN"

    Narrator was good with what she had to work with.. No chemistry or emotional lead up for main characters. just a lot of inner reflection ..a bit of sex..then more inner reflection about it from Faith who was a whiny , often timed dumb character. you just could not like her. Tyson his character was better developed In the other books in series. He was DULL I'm this one. 'DULL"

    "Fun read!"
    What did you love best about True Love and Other Disasters?

    I found myself excited to listen and staying in my car after I was already in the driveway to keep listening! The characters were believable and charming. I laughed out loud!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly suggest this book!

    Story
    "Adventures of mixing love and business"
    If you could sum up True Love and Other Disasters in three words, what would they be?

    Initially, I was not aware that this book was apart of a series by the author.
    This is a stand alone book which makes it enjoyable as I didn't feel like I was missing information to fully grasp the story.

    So in three word,

    Sexy
    Funny
    Courageous


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was my favorite for her dogged determination to be successful despite the lack of support and encouragement from those around her. She persevered to prove her worthy of running her dead husband's beloved hockey team.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is at the end when the team wins the Stanley Cup and her love interest is free to disclose their relationship.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hockey, love and other disasters.
