    Back in the days . . . well I read all Gibson's books and the Chinooks Hockey Team series was among my favorites. Especially Georgeanne and John Kolwaski, whose daughter Lexi is now all grown up and a runaway bride like her momma. And, of course, she meets her own Chinook player, Sean ...

    Ohh, it pains me to say it, but I was disappointed in this one! I was expecting so much more. I've read every previous book in this series, and all were winners. But this one...*sigh* It had a lot of promise, and touches of humor. I liked the whole premise--but the execution was ju...

    This one was just meh...for me. I had a hard time buying into the couple. Lexie came off as vapid ditz while Sean came off as cold. I didn't get the attraction between them. I did like it when Lexie would tell Sean stories about what her dad thought about the new guy on the team, not k...

    In the latest installment of the Chinooks Hockey series, The Art of Running in Heels, we are returning to a favorite family of the past - the one that started it all - The Kowalsky's. It's not necessary to read the entire series before starting this book, but I highly recommend tha...

    "Love at first sight deserves a second look." Lexie Kowalsky's life doesn't seem to be on the right track because she make bad decisions after another. The last one was participating in a reality show to promote her dog clothing business, where she fought for the prize but ditched t...

    How much do I like Rachel Gibson's books? So much that even though I have many, many, books to read that come out before this one, I bumped it up to the top of the list and I am so glad I did. The book opens with Georgeanne and John from the first Chinook book "Simply Irresistible". Jo...

    3.5 stars Lexie and Sean met under circumstances very similar to the way her parents, John and Georgeanne met in Simply Irresistible (a book I re-read as a refresher), which I found highly improbable, but I guess it worked for the story and some readers might appreciate the symmetry...

    DNF What a disappointment. I was looking forward to reading this book because it's a new addition to the Chinooks Hockey Team and there are a couple of books in the series I love, but I don't feel like reading more dialogues with guys using 'he plays like a girl' as an insult or cal...

    Reading a book by Rachel Gibson has been a long time coming and now after finishing The Art of Running in Heels, I feel like kicking myself for not trying her books sooner, as this book was such a delight to read. I?ve always been a fan of sports romances in books, but lately with bo...

    I'm thinking Rachel Gibson is another author it's time to move on from. In the past, she was always my go to but as of late, I have not been enjoying her work. Where the hell was the chemistry and connection between Sean and Lexie? At least 60% of the book was them spent apart, in ...

    Originally published at Reading Reality Readers have begged Rachel Gibson to return to her popular Chinooks Hockey series, and now I know why. But consider this one as ?Chinooks Hockey, the Next Generation?. The series started in 1998, and the couple who found their HEA in the f...

    I found this to be a fun, quick, light read. However, I do agree with some reviewers. The H/h were hard to connect with and spent most of their time apart. It was definitely a case of lust versus love. The romance felt superficial and neither characters (primary and secondary) were lik...

    Definitely disappointed with this one. It started well enough but then suddenly everything felt rushed and a little all over the place. Couldn't quite work out what Lexie and Sean's characteristics were supposed to be. One minute she's "impulsive" the next she's making lists a...

    2.5 stars I?m a sucker for the fake relationship trope, so I was pretty excited for this one. Lexie and Sean are okay characters. I wanted to like them both so much, but she comes across as flighty and he?s really cocky {and not in a good way}. Sean?s inner monologue mainl...

    3 Stars I was so excited when I realized this was Lexie's story, I just finished the first book in the series about her parents in which she had a huge part, I decided to jump right in to this one. I was sadly quite a bit disappointed, mostly because of its similarity to her parents...

    3.25 stars for me. This book was cute. Lexie took some time to grow on me. But I like this author and her stories. I have really enjoyed this series. The ending wasn?t great. Of course Sean came to his senses but I found the ending a bit abrupt and then the last line too corny. Had h...

    I've been wanting to read this author seems like forever!  I finally took the plunge and decided to read out of order, which is mostly what has kept me from trying her in the past.  THE ART OF RUNNING IN HEELS was a fun hockey romance and a great sampler for me of Ms. Gibson's style...

    2.5 to 3 stars. This one wasn't as good as I hoped. :( I have really liked some of the other Chinooks Hockey series so I wanted to read this newer one too. And it's not that long since I reread (and enjoyed) Simply Irresistible, which is about the romance of Lexie's parents. That one k...
