More Rachel Gibson, please!

Great book---Light, sexy and fun! Rachel Gibson does chick lit right---the relationship moves at a believable pace, good banter between the main characters and some steamy sex. The plot is not anything new, but at least it makes sense and isn't cheesy. This book is low on the nonsense and ridiculousness that you see in a lot of chick lit, and I'm not sure when it was published, but it reads more modern than the Linda Howard, Diane Steel types of books. I cringe at some of the lines in those books.

Susan Bennett does a great job with the narration, too. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Hockey has never been this hot...

A good story + a great narrator= an amazing audiobook you'll want to listen over and over again. When Faith Duffy's elderly husband passes away, he leaves her a whole lot of money and a hockey team as well. She was a stripper, turned Playboy bunny, turned trophy wife for the past five years. And she has absolutely no idea how to manage a hockey team. Landon (Faith's stepson who happens to be older than her) is bitter than she got any inheritance at all and will try anything in his power to destroy her. (Something like when Anna Nicole Smith became a widow). Faith hires an assistant and becomes very involved with the team (specially the captain Ty Savage).

The story is believable and interesting. The romance is sweet, hot and intense. My knowledge and interest in hockey was 0 before this book and I ended up enjoying learning about hockey. The story does make references about the game but in an interesting way that was very appropriate for the story. This is a series, and Audible does not have all the books in the series available. This is book 4 of the CHinooks Hockey Team but it can very well be read as a stand alone. Book 5 in the series is Nothing But Trouble which I'll start listening to as soon as I finish this review.

Narration: Susan Bennett did a great job with this audiobook. All of her character voices were distinct and boy oh boy she can make a steamy scene sound sizzling hot!!! There are several steamy scenes in the book and she does such a convincing portrayal of both characters that it was like she was there. I can only imagine the sound engineer who was there with her while recording uff...

I highly recommend this book to people who enjoy a good contemporary romance story with interesting and likable characters, steamy romance and great narration.
