Simply Irresistible!

 

Georgeanne Howard, charm school graduate and Southern belle extraordinaire, leaves her fiancé at the altar when she realizes she just can’t marry a man old enough to be her grandfather, no matter how rich he is. John Kowalsky unknowingly helps her escape, and only when it’s too late does he realize that he’s absconded with his boss’s bride. At the height of his hockey career, this bad boy isn’t looking to be anybody’s savior but his own, no matter how beautiful this angel may be. But a long night stretches ahead of them—a night too sultry to resist temptation.

When Georgeanne and John meet again, she is on her way to becoming Seattle’s domestic darling and he is past his hellraising ways. But he is shocked to learn that their single unforgettable night in paradise produced a daughter, and he is determined to be a part of her life. Georgeanne has loved John since the moment she jumped into his little red Corvette seven years ago, but she doesn’t want to risk her heart again. Is he really a changed man? And will he risk the wrath of his boss, and one final chance at glory, to prove that this time his love will be everlasting?

About 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 really liked this book. I could not put it down. Georgeanne was a sweetie and John a bit too much jock, but their love for Lexie was adorable. I love a man who is good with kids. Nothing is sexier! I would recommend this book.

After the reviews and summary, I thought this would be a good story but it was little more than a trashy romance novel. The characters had no depth and the entire focus of this story was getting laid with a complete disrespect for the little girl that both the characters claim to "love" that happened to be in the next room while they got in on... twice. It was a terrible book if your looking for a good story but if you're looking to be titillated with nothing but cheesiness and rediculous thoughts as filler, then this is the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book. I like how you get both person's perspectives. I am a hockey fan so this caught my eye. I have read this book twice and it is definitely worth re-reading in the future! I am loving Rachel Gibson's hockey/Chinook series books!

Loved the storyline, I thought it was a great, fast read. I love a good sports-romance novel. The only complaint I have is the editing. I know this is an older novel, but I would've thought the editors would've picked up on some mistakes. Words misspelled (7ust for just, for example). The main issue I had with the editing was how one part of the storyline flowed directly into the other mid-chapter without any break. (You know what I'm talking about, the authors generally leave a space to break up the thoughts/action of one character to move to the other). There were a few times I was flat out confused about what I was reading because we just from Georgie to John without that break. I had to re-read certain parts. I do not fault Rachel Gibson for this, I genuinely enjoyed the story so much that I've already begun the next in the series with book #3 waiting in the wings.

Soft porn and very predictable plot! Very contrved and uses a formula of girl & boy attracted to each other & how they hide theit feelings to buljd tension, not hing new or original- too much about the herione's boobs, too!

3 1/2 STARS! A quirky story of life, lust and eventually a happily ever after! The main characters are fairly well developed, but there was a side plot of Mae/Ray that I found to be a bit distracting. For a hockey romance, there wasn't really much of a hockey context involved, but it was an entertaining read. The moment Georgeanne Howard decided to run out on her wedding, her life was changed forever! Her unknowing hero whisks her away into a night of temptation too steamy to be denied. When hockey player John Kowalsky realizes that the woman he helped into his car is none other than the soon-to-be bride of his boss, he's fit to be tied! Heads are going to roll if this ever gets out ... namely his! Seven years later, their lives are in totally different places when they meet by happenstance again. John has settled down from his wild ways that somewhat stemmed from a past that she knew nothing about back when they were first together ... and Georgeanne has made something of herself in the culinary world. When John accidentally finds out about the daughter they share, Georgie is determined not to let the guy that hurt her do the same to her daughter. She doesn't need his help and doesn't appreciate him trying to insinuate himself into her happy life! John isn't going to take no for an answer when it comes to a kid that is just as much his as hers ... will the fireworks lead to a feud worthy of the tabloids, or will they figure out a way to work together towards a better future?

Characters had very little depth by a third of the way into the book. Lots of "accidentally" pressed against each other, robe slipping open, etc. I always finish a book once I start one - not this one, I didn't even keep it in my library.

This book had a lot of editing errors (mispelled words or typos). It was generally a good plot but lacked the depth or fun that grabs you and pulls you in.
