    One thought on “The Trouble With Valentine's Day”

    1. The Trouble With Valentine’s Day is book three in the Chinooks Hockey Team series by Rachel Gibson. Rachel is a new to me author and I chose this book because I was looking for something fun to read in honor of Valentine’s Day. I have to tell you that I am seriously in love. This book delivered on every level, it was fun, sweet, fast paced, sexy and just made me swoon. I finished it at bed time last night and when I woke up this morning and thought about it, I still got the tummy twirls.Kate [...]

    2. This one was one of my favorites of the whole Chinooks Hockey series, although there wasn't much about hockey in it. The hero, Rob Sutter, 36, is a retired Seattle Chinook now running a sporting goods store in small Gospel, Idaho. Rob is newly divorced after (view spoiler)[ cheating on his wife and experiencing his own "Fatal Attraction" and barely escaping with his life, if not his career. (hide spoiler)].Rob is adamant about not making the same mistakes regarding relationships (no more marriag [...]

    3. Loved this one! Although I wanted to give Rob a head slap quite a few times. Such a great series. I highly recommend.

    4. While the third in a series, there isn't really anything linking this to the others beyond the team, and they aren't even present as the story starts with Rob retired and living in podunk, ID. That said, read the others first. And then skip this one. Because it sucks.This was an awful story and that's mainly for two reasons. First, Rob is an insensitive klunk who has zero consideration for anyone but himself. Even when he eventually "falls in love", he's still thinking about it in terms of what [...]

    5. Re-read -- 12/14/2015++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++5 StarsJust what the doctor ordered. I was having issues getting into any book - not the books' fault but rather my state of mind. Just for this book, I also think my rating scale needs adjustment. Sometimes, if a book hits all components needed within the reader, at the time being read, it should count whether it is terribly unique, cranks on emotions, demonstrates exemplary writing, etc. Sometimes, just because, is good enough. This one is a [...]

    6. A bit hum ho! I read this series about 6 years ago and gave them all 5 stars. They seem to be dropping stars as I read them Another 3 star. It was an enjoyable read but nothing out of the ordinary!!

    7. *MIGHT HAVE SOME SPOILERS*Boy, did this book ever grow on me! I wasn't so sure in the beginning if this was a book that I even wanted to read. I didn't particularly care for the heroine's back story and thought this might be a dnf. The hero’s history is what made me sit up and take notice and not give up. It had me intrigued from the moment I heard it. I applause RG for making him so realistic with flaws and all. That’s a trend in her books that has made her an auto buy for me.Not many autho [...]

    8. This is the 6th or 7th book I've read by Rachel Gibson and I'm wondering if I'll ever read one that I feel deserves less than 5 stars. Not that I'm complainingt at all. It's just that each book I've read has been totally different from the otherseach plot fresh, the characters unique (but always enjoyable) and the romantic aspect feels as if it was written specifically for that hero and heroine. That is pretty amazing for an author to achieve among her stand-alone books, but to pull it off in a [...]

    9. I liked See Jane Score but I didn't really get a feel for this one. Rob never comes across as sorry about his cheating past, other than he wishes he had realized the woman he cheated with was crazy before he had sex with her. He doesn't wish he hadn't cheated, he just wishes he cheated with someone else. Tough to like a guy like that.And then for the rest of the novel he meets Kate and only wants a sexual relationship with her. He doesn't care about her, never once has a conversation with her or [...]

    10. Have you ever started a book and from the very beginning, you thought to yourself this is gonna be good? Well, starting The Trouble With Valentine's Day, I just had a feeling this is going to be right up my alley and I was right. Mostly thanks to the awesome heroine, whom I loved to pieces. My feelings towards the hero are still debatable, but what I can tell you for sure is that even though he behaved like a dick a lot of times, he somehow always managed to wiggle into my good graces. Charming [...]

    11. Missed the boat completely on this one. Bummer. I went into this with somewhat high hopes expecting something similar to Nothing But Trouble but didn't happen. RG didn't bother showing much character growth with a hero who has a history of chronic careless cheating. Rob didn't seem to show a lot of guilt over it and that bothered me the most. Instead the author seemed to focus more on the ONS he had with a deranged lunatic who tried to kill him instead of the fact that he cheated on his wife whe [...]

    12. 3.5/5; 4 stars; B+I really enjoyed the slow pacing of the romance in this story and the personal growth each of the main characters underwent, including Kate's dad and Robs mom. Kathleen Early did a good job on the narration. I read the paperback several years ago and think the audiobook is even better.

    13. Me gusto muchísimo la historia de Kate y Rob. Quizas porque no esperaba demasiado y llego en el momento exacto en el cual necesitaba leer una historia así, liviana pero con sentido y muy buen relato.

    14. I am really going back and forth on rating this book between a 4 or 5. The ending was fabulous; lump in the throat, funny, ironic and made me feel so good. I loved the sport's hero theme, although Rob was no longer playing and owned a sporting goods store in small town Idaho, he still had the attitude. Rachel Gibson has pretty much always delivered for me, great characters, well written stories with depth, but lightness. When I first started reading romance 3 years ago she is who I cut my teeth [...]

    15. Just ok. I picked up this author from amazon as she appeared in the same lists as sep, whose books are great.However this was not half as good. The heroine tries to pick up a guy at a bar for sex. He rejects her and she is humiliated. She goes on to stay with her grandfather in the small town of Gospel and it turns out this guy, the hero, is also resident there. She is initially embarrassed and there is conflict between the pair until they eventually get it on. They have both suffered fairly dif [...]

    16. 4.5 STARS!I loved this book! Not of the bests I have read but it really was a terrific read, definitely much better than the first 2 books in this series. I just felt like singing: "It must be love", from Madness . Just like watching one of those amazing romantic movies that leave you all cozy inside. **sigh**.In this book we have our sexy hot hero, Rob, described as one of those guys too sexy to be real, almost a GQ guy (not being really one because he's too rough and manly,lol). P.E.R.F.E.C.T. [...]

    17. 3.5 stars.This was a fairly solid sport-themed read but just didn't completely hit the mark. I feel like Gibson spent a lot of time on stuff that made the story drag and just didn't sink her teeth enough into the really good parts. It was a shame, because Rob and Kate's story had real potential.I kept reading because I was enjoying the characters and where this could lead but it didn't satisfactorily tick all the boxes for me. There was also no hockey action, fyi - but the thought of Rob playing [...]

    18. A friend asked me why I liked this oneI summed it up by saying - I liked that the h placed a value on her needs and self-worth near the end – made a very sweet ending and made H pull his head out.:)

    19. Segunda vez que lo leo y un auténtico gustazo.Los libros de esta autora se leen solos. Son sencillos, con mucha pasión, romance y dosis de humanidad. Mi favorito sigue siendo por el momento el segundo (See Jane Score, en español Jane juega y gana)Este libro empieza en el Día de San Valentín (curiosamente muy cercano) y la protagonista, Katie, ha tenido muy mala suerte en sus relaciones anteriores, así que, deprimida y harta, decide llevar a cabo una fantasía y proponerle una noche de sexo [...]

    20. Első és utolsó Rachel Gibson könyvem. Már az első pár oldal után tudtam, hogy utálni fogom, kezdve ott, hogy a főhősnő azon lamentál, hogy "Mióta is hord raktár-áruházban vásárolt alsóneműt a Victoria's Secrets helyett"? Az élet nagy problémái, gondoltam még ekkor, de aztán jött egy ilyen humorosnak szánt mondat is, mint idézem:" Nem tehetett ellene semmit, mert a férfi úgy ontotta magából a feromonokat, mint a csernobili reaktor a radioaktív sugárzást." Ez a [...]

    21. This was my first book by Rachel Gibson and the one that made me look up her other works. She's funny. she writes about strong, real people.

    22. Oh man, I hope the soul patch the lead male (Rob Sutter) is sporting gets shaved or something, because I just can't handle a guy with a soul patch. Rachel Gibson does such a great job of balancing humor with serious issues. Plus there is no other author I have ever read who writes about hockey in such an incredibly fantastic way as she does; hands down. I don't know what it says about me but if I was known around town as the woman who men thought wanted their ball sacks as chain purses I would [...]

    23. I didn't finish this book, so I won't rate it. What I'll do is try to explain why I just didn't feel like reading on.1. I didn't like Rob, the male main character of this book. He used to cheat on his girlfriends, he cheated on his wife and mother of his child. And he didn't even feel bad about it. The only thing that worried him was the fact that the woman he betrayed his wife with, turned out to be bat-shit crazy after he dropped her like a hot potatoe. So the only reason he stopped sleeping a [...]

    24. 3.5 stars; I liked these characters, but their behavior to one another was immature. The subplot between the grandfather and mother was a tiny bit hokey, and the middle had a lot of back and forth that didn't show great character development or a believable emotional arc. The Chinooks are all I love my groupies until the love of my life comes along, and the intimacy issues the h/h experience due to trauma was referenced, but it could have been explored in a more believable way, like Luc and Jane [...]

    25. I guess her old books really are better, because this was one book that i just couldn't put down. She got my attention by mentioning the snake tattoo and had me captivated til the very end. well, i won't lie to you, the ending didn't really do it for me, but it was still a really great book. It was interesting to read about a former hockey player who messed up his life and is now living like a monk to try to make up for his past mistakes. & i loved the fact that the heroine was a PI. Not man [...]

    26. Even though the book was pretty funny and made me smile in some parts, I can't say that I like it as whole. It was difficult for me to overcome my aversion to Rob's philandering background. Especially when he left a bar with another woman after he and Kate had sex for the first time. I can't understand why Kate never questioned him about this! Neither do we get to see his POV thoughts about it. This issue was never resolved and continues to REALLY BUG ME. I'm really not sure that Rob will remain [...]

    27. I really liked it, mostly because I always enjoy flawed characters and Rob definitely fits this category. Although he did some pretty bad things in the past, I still liked him. After all the things he went through, I had no doubts he would change. He admitted his mistakes and had no wish to repeat them. I highly recommend this book to those of you who enjoy sports romance, hot love scenes and small town folks.
