Overview

Trouble . . .

Chelsea Ross’s acting career has been a total bust. The closest she ever came to stardom was her brilliant performance as “Pretty Dead Girl #1.” But leaving Hollywood to become the personal assistant to a famous hockey player could be her stupidest career move ever.

More trouble . . .

Injured superstar Mark Bressler’s glory days are over. The bad-boy ex-jock could at least be civil to the pint-sized, pink-haired bombshell who the Seattle Chinooks hired to be his P.A. If Chelsea didn’t need the money, she’d be running from the world’s biggest jerk as fast as her feet could carry her.

Big trouble!

Chelsea can deal with Mark’s rotten attitude and dark moods. The problem is those biceps and that red-hot bod! And when the bad boy starts to put the moves on her, Chelsea knows it’s time she banished him to the penalty box . . . if only she could resist the kind of trouble he has in mind!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Angry at the world when a near-fatal car crash takes him off the ice permanently, hockey superstar Mark Bressler is bent on making life miserable for everyone—especially his latest team-provided personal assistant: outspoken, flamboyant, and unemployed actress Chelsea Ross. Chelsea is out to revamp her acting career and badly needs the $10,000 bonus she'll get if she lasts three months with Mark; failure is simply not an option. But neither is the unwanted, totally surprising attraction that springs up between them. Colorful characters from Gibson's earlier Seattle Chinooks titles round out the cast and add context to this effervescent delight. VERDICT Lively, hot, and full of sassy wit, Idaho-based Gibson's (True Love and Other Disasters) latest hilarious hockey turn combines nonstop fun with a touching dash of authenticity.

    A new treasure

    I just found a new author. I love her! I'm getting her backlist. How did I not know she was out there?

    If you like your heroes brooding and a bit cranky, but sexy as all get up, and your heroines a tad off the mainstream and cute and spunky, this is the book for you. This book sizzles with tons of sexual tension and the love scenes are hot. Great story. One I strongly recommend.

    Loved it!

    Right up there with the rest of Rachel's great reads! This one is also centered around hockey (not a big fan, but like it) and romance. Once I started it I just kept reading. I've since read it a second time, and enjoyed it just as much!! I wish she'd do more along the lines of this one and See Jane Score!

    Worth Reading Again and Again

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** Chelsea Ross is an amazing, unique, stubborn, smart, woman with more moxie than I could dream of having. She's the heroine of Nothing But Trouble and she made this book worth every moment I spent reading it.

    That's not to say our hero, Mark Bressler, wasn't worthwhile. Despite his perpetual annoyance, we understand why he is the way he is.

    Rachel Gibson skillfully created a complete, realistic and very human cast in this book. The plot was thoroughly engaging as well, and I loved to read along while watching as Chelsea and Mark fumbled their way from dislike, to grudging respect to genuine friendship with a healthy dose of attraction that had me running for the fan to cool off.

    While the plot itself wasn't that full of anything unusual, the characters kept me turning pages. And, not just the main ones. I loved Chelsea's twin sister, Bo. I fell a little in love with Jules. And Derek's desperate need for Mark's approval both broke my heart and made me finally see the good man Mark really was.

    The hoops Mark made Chelsea jump through as his assistant made me grin, and the way Chelsea just hunkered down and took whatever he threw at her was awesome. That Mark was the only person who "got" Chelsea was the clincher, though, and I was really pulling for them to get their HEA.

    This book wasn't an intellectual challenge. It wasn't exciting or nerve-wracking or thought provoking. What it was, though, was simply a really amazing, feel good, fun, sexy romance. A story with quirky characters, and some of them fell in love.

    Nothing But Trouble was simply a book I completely enjoyed reading.

    Another Gibson Keeper

    Nothing But Trouble by Rachel Gibson is another fun loving tale set in the world of hockey.

    Mark Bressler has scared away every care worker that is hockey team has sent. Mark is having a hard time dealing with this career ending injury let alone putting up with someone under foot. The PR department of the Chinooks decides to try a different approach this time. They send a personal assistant. Mark is convinced he can run off this pint sized bombshell Chelsea Ross in nothing flat.

    Chelsea Ross's acting career never really progressed past bit parts in horror flicks. As a favor to her twin sister Bo she agrees to be Mark's PA. If she didn't need the money so badly she would leave Marks cranky self in the dust.

    Spending time with Mark has Chelsea seeing the man beneath all that bluster. Understanding all the changes in Mark life has her seeing her life differently. Chelsea didn't see falling in love with her boss in her future but plans changed. Can she get Mark to see that they have a chance at something real?

    Nothing But Trouble is an absolute gem. It's a feel good readthat will make you laugh, sigh and tear up. Rachel Gibson is the queen of hockey romances. I can't wait till her next book comes out.

    Not bad...not great

    I've read all of Rachel Gibson's books and like her writing...this was the only one that I can say that I will probably not revisit and read again at some future time. She's a good writer...but even though I was interested in the characters and continued to read, I was not really very involved with the story. Interesting afternoon read but you'll be able to put it down to cook dinner...therefore, not one of her best.

    Another winner!

    Rachel Gibson hits another home run with this book. Mark and Chelsea are fantastic characters that I grew to love over the course of this book. Watching these two bumble their way to that happily ever after made for an entertaining weekend read. Its the perfect beach read and if you loved her other hockey books then you'll enjoy this book as well. It had the humor and the fab cast that we all know and love from Rachel Gibson. I can't wait for more!

    Darkfire is near: Chapter 11

    We won the fight awesome. When all the changelings were down there was a little book there. I touched the book and somehow I looked like sonic the hedgehog. Everybody was amazed by my new look. Beats and CS were about to say something but didn't. Midnight was about to hit me because I looked different. BlueSpark said I looked awesome. Nitro had his sword up to my neck. What happened to me? Fire were coming out hands. The island was coming down. Everybody JUMP!
