Overview

It's the one day each year when being single is a sin . . .

The Trouble With Valentine's Day?

It just plain stinks!

Kate Hamilton should know. Dumped by her boyfriend, burnt out by her job, she's returned to Gospel, Idaho, where a Mountain Momma Crafters' original poetry reading is about as good as it gets on a Friday night. Then her first attempted seduction of a hunky stranger is completely rejected. So much for her self-esteem!

It turns out that Rob Sutter, former ice hockey madman, owner of Sutter's Sports—and the hunky stranger who told her to get lost—has been more than burned by love and isn't looking for a relationship. But then he and Kate find themselves in an ultra-compromising position in the M&S Market after-hours, giving the phrase "clean up in aisle five" a whole new meaning, and causing a whole lot of gossip in Gospel . . .

Meet the Author

Rachel Gibson began her fiction career at age sixteen, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about. She told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit-and-run and they believed her. She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.

I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys chick-lit. The book is entertaining and the characters are easy to fall in love with. I finished it in one sitting. I felt relaxed and happy after reading the book.

This was a reread for me and I will be going back again and again. I love the two main characters and all the supporting characters. I love the plot line and the dark backgrounds of both main characters that helps deepen the love story between them. The ending of the story is one of my favorite endings of any romantic novel. It is a quick read and will keep those pages turning as you read. It's great for a beach read, rainy weekend, or just a day when you want to lose yourself in an amazing love story. Note: Read this one after Rachel Gibson's "See Jane Score" because the characters overlap. If you haven't read "See Jane Score", it isn't a problem as this is not a sequel. It just shares some characters and reading "See Jane Score" first made this story all that more special to me.

This book was typical, but lacked serious character development, especially Rob's character. Some of the steamier scenes lack serious emotion that makes romance novels so great. I wouldn't recommend this to my friends as a good read.

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 4 Narration 3 Story 4 The first I’ve encountered in this series, I wasn’t 100% certain if the hockey would be prevalent (I love hockey) and it wasn’t over-mentioned. Sure, Rob is a retired player who now owns a sporting goods store, and is doing everything he can to outlast and revamp his image as a hard driving player, on and off the ice. See, he’s still regrouping from a puck bunny encounter gone Fatal Attraction that ended his marriage and almost derailed his career. He’s a ‘hands off’ guy now when it comes to getting involved, relationships and even easy encounters in bars. Kate is having a rough day, week, life. She’s just frustrated and running to regroup – and moving to Idaho just may help her do that after the go-go-go of Vegas. Smart, funny and now OH So Bored –she’s intrigued by the handsome man, and a few drinks in give her the liquid courage to make her move. Which he turns down. Flat. Oh this was fun – Kate is smart, funny, determined and not willing to take any guff from anyone. Rob is cute and adorable, even with his history: it really was clear that he wanted to move on and not be the center of gossip and speculation, and until Kate, he managed this quite well. Adding to their connection is a full frontal series of conflicts that plays on the fact that both are a bit uncertain about relationships and trust, and make their interactions sing. With a sweet romance building between Kate’s grandfather and Rob’s mother, and some wonderful town gossipy moments – the story is clever, sweet and fun. Narration was provided by Kathleen Early and she does a solid job narrating this lighter story: Kate is instantly available to listeners, and Rob, while not solidly ‘masculine’ in tone does have a variation in delivery and a slightly deeper register, allowing his voice to be recognized. Other characters are brought to the story neatly, if a bit generically, and present with a touch of audio interest to hold attention. Fun and light, this is a nice mix of romance and woman’s fiction, with a touch of fun fantasy thrown in. I received an audio copy of the title from the publisher via AudioBook Jukebox for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I love a good, quick-read, especially when it is Chick Lit. The main characters were well developed. Sometimes backgrounds of characters are only mentioned briefly, but the history of these characters and their personal experiences really shaped who they were and how they acted in their relationship. The plot was fairly typical. Two characters who didn't click initially find themselves in a situation, and their relationship develops from there. But it was fun novel that flowed really well. I read it quickly because I couldn't put it down. Although it isn't mentioned, I saw in other reviews that this novel should be read after the author's See Jane Score novel because it has some of the same characters. I didn't realize that until after I finished Trouble with Valentine's Day, so I am looking forward to reading another one of Rachel's novels.

Gibson is hilarious! Her heroine is feisty and fun. This book has some truly memorable characters, including the hot, romantic duo who spar and then kiss and makeup...and do it again...and again. Best of all, this book has a big heart with sweet ending. Almost better than chocolates!

This was the most trashy book I have ever read. I had no clue of this by reading your recommendation on my Nook. Now I want to know how to get rid of it on my Nook.

Enjoyed the book. My one complaint - the repeated use of Rob's vehicle make. Felt like a commercial should come on. Hope the author received a free HUMMER for the over use of the logo.
