    "Loved It!"

    Rachel Gibson is on my list of favorite authors, and I really enjoyed this book. I took off one star simply because I wished the end hadn't come so soon...maybe if she'd tacked on an epilogue, I could have given that last one. Susan Bennett did a good job narrating. It has been difficult for me to listen to some of my other purchases because the narrators' voices got on my nerves partway through the book, but that was not a problem here. (And as a bonus, I also think she did a great job reading the steamier parts of the story!)

    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.

    "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!

    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.

    Story
    "Cute, but Predictable"

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "A hockey lover's dream!"
    If you could sum up True Love and Other Disasters in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, tense and fun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Bennett – was your favorite?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    When I finished with this book I wanted more!

    "Cute easy listen."

    Not a prize winner, but it passed time on a long drive. A mindless listen and somewhat amuzing.
