BOOK DOWNLOAD Nothing But Trouble Author Rachel Gibson – friendship–circle.co.uk
Sadly I was bored through most of the book In five words Boring Uneventful Lackluster Forgettable Predictable I used to be a huge fan of Rachel Gibson but a few ears back she changed her writing style and now her books are noticably shorter and have far less layers and plot development The characters are one dimensional than her earlier books too and the heat just doesn t sizzle as well because of it BUT on the plus side she was always able to keep the dialog heat and storyline interesting enough for me Despite not loving them as much as her earlier books I kept reading and anticipating However in this one everything pretty much failed A uick forgettable read with a boring plot no funny dialog a lackluster romance that didn t feel genuine and a just OK heroheroine that in my mind didn t really fit together I wasn t sold Oh well at least it was a uick read I long for the Rachel Gibson of before but I guess I will have to give up on that wish Luckily authors like Toni Blake are picking up the slack and writing some fun interesting and hot romance contemporaries Edited to
Added My Full Review As my full review as on Mark Bressler is recovering from a terrible auto accident and lucky to be alive He was the captain of a Seattle hockey team before his accident and his team even went on to win the Stanley Cup without him Chelsea is a struggling scream ueen horror movie actress and a Hollywood personal assistant who comes to Seattle to see her sister the PR agent for the hockey team and takes a 3 month job helping Mark recover If she can manage 3 months she will get a 10K bonus check and a chance to change her life for the better The premise of this story was shaky to start but I was willing to buy Chelsea being hired by the team as a personal assistant when he needed a nurse assistant but he ran all of the ones in Seattle off with his a hole personality if only the humor and romance made up for it Most of the story takes place at Mark s
or showing two of them running errands and her doing his personal secretarial work Boring I did not find much of this interesting or humorous as Mark was just a jerk trying to get rid of her We mostly see his bad side and therefore must believe Chelsea falls for that kind of guy There are some scenes with him coaching a oung kid but Chelsea is not around for many of those so she really does not get to see the brief glimpses of his good side Chelsea was a likable and different heroine and she was great at letting his many insults roll off of her However I would have liked to see her spit back a few insults at times as he really had it coming She was too passive at times and wishy washy They liked each other s physical look and had some sexual dream fantasies about each other but I never got the feeling of a budding romance The need to scratch an itch Yes A romance No The sexual tension was mostly missing so when they finally do come together it seemed a bit sudden His declaration that he is only good at hockey and sex was his odd way of wooing her In his mind his reasoning is since he can t play hockey let s have sex and see if that part of him still works after the accident Ugh Not romantic As with all romances there is the conflict and resolution Without spoiling it let s just say I didn t buy it at all The conflict was a minor issue that is blown out of proportion The resolution was too uick too easy and too who gives a hoot In the end I never cared for Mark Chelsea was OK and the relationship just did not feel like one that would work past six months There was a secondary storyline with her sister but it was glossed over It was not a strong secondary romance story There were a few cameos from past players and their wives but we see very.
