    3.5 Stars. Fast forward twenty-something years from the very first book in the "Chinooks Hockey Team" series; and we have John and Georgia Kowalski's daughter Lexi all grown up. Lexi decides to drum up business for her pet couture enterprise by appearing on a

    style reality series. The reality part of the series has gotten away from her, and she suddenly finds herself at the altar as the 'winner' of the series; about to marry a man she barely knows. She runs away from the wedding to hide in a small town in Canada, where she meets up with hockey player Sean Knox. When her bolt from the wedding earns bad press for her business; she concocts a fake romance to bolster public opinion of her. That is, if she can convince Sean to go along with her plan...

    Cute story, classic humorous RG. It's been a long time since she's put out a new book in this series. Gibson's writing style hasn't changed much over the years or really even evolved much; but that's okay, it worked for me. In a day when most love stories involve jumping into to bed within days (or less) of meeting for sweaty, slippery, overly erotic sex scenes; this was a breath of fresh air. The characters actually spent time together getting to know one another. Family is actually involved. Not many do that anymore. Many contemporary romances have lost sight of what romance really is. Now it's meet, have lots of sex, then they suddenly decide they are in love at the end of the book. To me that's not romantic; and I truly enjoyed reading this throwback romance.

    I did really enjoy this one, but it was my least favorite of the series. I just didn't bond well with the characters. But it was a cute story.

    Ohh, it pains me to say it, but I was

    I was expecting so much more.

    I've read every previous book in this series, and all were winners. But this one...*sigh*

    It had a lot of promise, and touches of humor.

    While on the run she meets up with surly hockey star Sean Knox. Isn't this how her parents met?

    Now you have to suspend disbelief here--because even though Lexie is a big hockey fan (her dad was a superstar and now coaches the Seattle Chinooks) she doesn't recognize Sean? Isn't he like the league scoring leader? Does she only know players who play for the Chinooks? (And while I'm talking hockey you don't win/lose by "points", you win/lose by

    . It's not, "they lost by two points"--this isn't football or basketball--it's "they lost by two

    "

    Okay, that wouldn't bother me so much if the story was good...

    I think my main problem with this story was Lexie and Sean. I didn't think they even

    each other. Forget love. They might have had a healthy case of lust, but love? I wasn't convinced at all. And neither were all that likable, I'm sorry to say. Lexie came off as a bit of a ditz, and Sean? He did nothing for me.

    Kind of sad, because I think the story could've been fun. Lexie appears on a Bachelor-like TV series to promote her "brand" (she has an online doggie duds business), she gets caught up in "winning", and the next thing she knows she's about to marry a guy she hardly knows. Sean come into the picture, sort of "saves" her while dumping her on his hypochondriac mother, and thinks about how he can get in her pants. If only the author had shown Sean

    Lexie a bit more, than

    it could've been believable when they

    fell in love. I just wasn't buying it.

    3 stars for the laughs at least

    Well ... I won't drop down and sing: Hallelujah!!

    I was so excited when I realized this was Lexie's story, I just finished the first book in the series about her parents in which she had a huge part, I decided to jump right in to this one.

    I was sadly quite a bit disappointed, mostly because of its similarity to her parents story, which was so notable because I just finished it, as well as something just plain missing here. I still really like Lexie and I enjoyed Sean, but didn't love this one...it was just ok.
