Review: See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson

Released: January 28, 2003
Publisher: Avon
Rated: Adult
Series: Chinooks Hockey Team, Book 2
Buy: Amazon
This is Jane A little subdued. A little stubborn. A little tired of going out on blind dates with men who drive vans with sofas in the back, Jane Alcott is living the Single Girl existence in the big city. She is also leading a double life. By day, she's a reporter covering the raucous Seattle Chinooks hockey team -- especially their notorious goalie Luc Martineau. By night, she's a writer, secretly creating the scandalous adventures of "Honey Pie" ... the magazine series that has all the men talking. See Jane Spar Luc has made his feelings about parasite reporters -- and Jane -- perfectly clear. But if he thinks he's going to make her life miserable, he'd better think again. See Jane Attract For as long as he can remember, Luc has been single-minded about his career. The last thing he needs is a smart-mouthed, pain-in-the-backside reporter digging into his past and getting in his way. But once the little reporter sheds her black and gray clothes in favor of a sexy red dress, Luc sees that there is more to Jane than originally meets the eye. Maybe it's time to take a risk. Maybe it's time to live out fantasies. Maybe it's time to ... see Jane score.

What I thought

A second helping of hockey players, I was pretty excited to dive into the second book in this series. I was a little sad to see the first two hockey players we got to meet in the first to be retired and completely out of the picture. But at the same time, it makes the story more believable since all the hockey players aren't getting their own girls too quickly to make it cheesy or eye roll worthy.

Since a bit of time has lapsed, we get to meet a new hunky goalie. I really liked Luc and Jane. Jane was a very different character from Georgeanne and I was glad that it wouldn't seem to be a repeat of similar characters. What I enjoyed most was a slightly different view of the hockey players and the heroine. Being a reporter sure did make some troubles for Jane and I really enjoyed watching her struggle and ultimately overcome those pesky hockey players.

I'm already gearing up for the next book, it's already on hand. This series, so far, is very cute, romantic and definitely a series that I recommend (although to those +18). I've really enjoyed the first two and I imagine I will be making a mad dash to the used bookstore to see if they have the next after book 3.

I saw your review for the first one and now this one and I'm glad you're really enjoying them. I'm not big into adult contemporary but maybe I need to dip my toes a bit more. I'll keep an eye at the used bookstore for the first one.

I love contemp romance when I need a break from all the YA books or Paranormal books I read. And this is pretty good, more story than sex scenes versus other I've read.
