True Love and Other Disasters by Rachel Gibson

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 345 pp
Challenge This one covers no challenge, at this time.

First Sentence or two: The Night before Virgil Duffy's funeral, a storm pounded the Puget Sound. But by the next morning, the gray clouds were gone, leaving in their place a view of Elliott Bay and the spectacular skyline of downtown Seattle.


Disaster Number One: Men

Hard knocks and hunger taught Faith Duffy not to believe in love. Still, when she married her very wealthy—and very old—husband, she became the perfect wife. And then he went to that big bank in the sky, leaving Faith with lonely nights, a pile of money, and a total mess of a pro hockey team. Heck, Faith doesn't even watch hockey!

Disaster Number Two: Passion

But most of America and half of Canada is watching Ty Savage. His lethal sex appeal and deadly right hook make him the favorite of fans. For most of Ty's life, he's dreamed of winning the Stanley Cup. The last thing he needs is a bimbo messing up his plans.

Disaster Number Three: Love

Faith loathes Ty on sight, but she can't stop thinking about him all day . . . and night. Then a moment of temptation ends with Faith in Ty's bed, and she begins to see there's more to him than sex appeal. Ty discovers there's far more to Faith than beauty and billions. But a relationship with Faith is impossible, and falling in love—that would be a disaster.

Random Thoughts - This book was so FULL of PASSION!! It kept me glued to the pages and occasionally holding my breath. I love when books can do that to you, just hold you in a spell as if your very life depended on reading it. I can easily recommend this book to others without batting an eyelash. This is the first time I have read a Rachel Gibson book I believe, and you can bet your ass I will be reading more just as soon as I can get my Hot little hands on them! This book can be compaired to SEP's football series books. I thoroughly enjoyed those and hope Ms. Gibson will be making a few more in her Hockey series.

Favorite Scene - Would have to be the one where she dons her coat and heels and nothing else and heads for the door and her man waiting by a hot car for a HOT night of passion. These two sure made the blood boil when they got together. I enjoyed how they kept saying how "inappropriate" the things they were doing to each other. Made me giggle cause it made it all that more sinful for the things they did.
Rating - I gave this book a 4 stars.
