Review of Any Man of Mine by Rachel Gibson

Any Man of Mine
Rachel Gibson
Harper Collins
384 pages
ISBN 13: 9780061579110

Autumn Haven came to Vegas for a much needed vacation and armed with her to-do list she planned to hit the jackpot. What she didn’t plan on was finding I’m too sexy for my hockey stick Sam LeClaire, what she didn’t expect was to be wined, dined and seduced into next Saturday. She may not have expected that, but that and more is what she got.
Sam LeClaire the infamous Seattle Chinooks player knew what to expect in Vegas  what he didn’t expect was Autumn Haven and how she made him feel. What he didn’t expect was his darn the consequences exploit and his cowardice afterward.
Fast forward five years and Sam sees those consequences with every scheduled visit with his and Autumn’s son Conner, then Sam has a revelation that changes his outlook on Conner and on Autumn too and just maybe those wild days and crazy nights in Vegas was the start of something after all.

Several years ago while looking for something to entertain myself I picked up Rachel Gibson’s Not Another Bad Date, the cover intrigued me and the blurb decided my purchase and ever since I’ve been a Gibson Girl, why, let me tell you the ways.
Rachel Gibson can take an oversexed, larger than life hockey star and cut him off at the knees, make him a regular Joe and turn him into every girl’s dream hero, she can  take a down on her luck lady and make sure she turns her into Helen Ready’s W-O-M-A-N and not take one inch of femininity away from her and that’s just what you get with Any Man Of Mine. She gives us a great yet simple story line that anyone can understand and enjoy with easy to read dialogue and characters that will ingratiate themselves to us and make us keep turning those pages. Our hero Sam will frustrate and charm his way into your heart just like he does his heroine Autumn and Autumn is every little girls dream of a heroine, strong, determined and won’t take any hockey puck off anyone. The romance is filled with missed possibilities, grave mistakes and other varied minefields, will they get their HEA in spite of all that, you’ll have to read it yourself to answer that question. The love scenes are harder hitting than getting face planted in the rink, full of lust, desire and descriptive bedroom scenes that don’t all happen in bedrooms.

So if you’re looking for a read to heat up the summer, look no farther. If you’re not a fan of Rachel Gibson it’s only because you’ve never read her. If you love a quick easy romance that heat up the pages this one’s for you. If you like Susan Elizabeth Phillips or Kristan Higgans you’ll like the work of Rachel Gibson.
