Product Description

From Amazon

Setting: Seattle, Washington
Sensuality: 8

At long last, Seattle Times columnist Jane Alcott has a shot at a full-time assignment. She badly needs the income, but unfortunately, the opening is for a sports reporter traveling with the Seattle Chinooks hockey team and she knows nothing about the game. To add to her difficulty, the team doesn't want her, especially Luc "Lucky" Martineau, the Chinooks $33 million goalie. The team stonewalls when she tries to interview them and they haze her mercilessly; it isn't until the superstitious Luc decides that she brings good luck that Jane gets a shot at being a real journalist. But when her acceptance by the team leads to spending more time with Luc, Jane finds, to her dismay, that he’s more than a handsome, empty-headed sports jock and her heart is in danger.

For his part, Luc learns that behind "plain Jane's" boring dark clothing and black-rimmed glasses lies a quick wit, nerves of steel, and a personality that charms him. And when Jane appears at a team banquet with a new haircut, makeup, and a killer red dress with matching sexy stilettos, Luc's affection fast-forwards into a major case of serious lust. But if Jane lets herself fall in love, she'll have to find a way to explain the secret she's hiding before it becomes public knowledge and Luc's passion turns to hate. Can she bring herself to tell him the truth? And if she does, will he forgive her?

Set in the rough and tumble world of professional hockey, See Jane Score features an intelligent, likable heroine and a hero with depth beneath his sports jock façade. The layered characters, intriguing setting, and the novel's compelling emotional plot all add up to an excellent contemporary romance. Don’t miss this one. --Lois Faye Dyer

From Publishers Weekly

Anyone who has ever salivated over a sports pro or mooned after a movie star will relish this fanciful romance between brainy Seattle Times columnist Jane Alcott and hockey player Luc Martineau. Luc, nicknamed Lucky for his ability to score with women and keep his opponents from scoring on the ice, is less than thrilled to hear that Jane will be reporting on the team's games and digging into his unsavory past. Still, he can't help feeling attracted to the pint-sized writer, despite her drab clothes and unfortunate profession. For Jane, the assignment is the perfect opportunity to stop writing fluff and break into serious reporting. But following the progression of the puck turns out to be less challenging than getting the players to talk, particularly Luc, whose lusty looks make her want to ditch her black clothes and wear red. The two eventually wind up in bed together, but Luc's fear of commitment and Jane's fear of abandonment may keep them from taking the next step. Readers will find themselves cheering for the charming couple with the fervor of frenzied hockey fans. Like most fairy tales, this one involves an unlikely transformation (a red dress turns plain Jane into a seductress), but the minor contrivance won't dim readers' enjoyment of this witty, warm-hearted tale.

I love Rachel Gibson's books. She has such witty characters, dialogue, and storylines that you are easily sucked into her world!
In See Jane Score we re-visit the game of hockey and the Seattle Chinooks hockey team.
Jane Alcott is a writer who is responsible for writing a colum about living a Single Girl existance and she also writes a steamy on going story of Honey Pie. While Jane is creative in her writing she is not creative in real life. In fact she only wears gray, black, and white and lives the life of a nun. All this is about to change for Jane when she accepts a part-time job as a sports reporter that covers the Chinooks games. Of course Jane knows nothing about the game but that can be fixed.
Luc "Lucky" Martineau is the goalie for the Chinooks, he is big, bad, and wanted by the women. He also has no need for reporters especially the female variety. Just wait until he gets a look at Jane. She is a mouse, has no idea how to dress, and worse knows nothing about his sport--yet he finds himself drawn to the reporter and that is not good!
Of course both Jane and Luc have enough emotional baggage that would choke an elephant and of course this will be carried into the budding relationship that grows between these two people but fear not there is a happy ending! And their struggle with this extra stuff is funny, touching and just plain fun to read about!
This was a great book and it was full of Ms. Gibson's trademark wit and humor! The chemistry between the two characters is beyond hot and you will find yourself unable to put the book down!

This was an easy read and not a bad romance novel. I don't regret reading it and it helped me pass a lazy afternoon. As a hockey fan, I'm always up for a hockey romance, and Gibson does a *much* better job writing about hockey than she does in her first attempt, "Simply Irresistible". It feels like she actually tried a little harder on this one. But if you're looking for a better hockey romance novel, I'd recommend Deirdre Martin's "Body Check", it's a little better crafted and feels more authentic, and the characters are more real.

One of my main problems with this book was that it took a really long time for anything to actually happen. I was half way through the book before I felt like the story had even started, as if Gibson was still trying to set everything up. I also didn't feel that there was much chemistry between the characters, which is what I found reading my previous Rachel Gibson book as well. She creates secondary characters that have potential but tend to fall flat, like Luc's sister who ends up being more whiny than likable, but who could have been a really fun part of the story. She tries to use the sister as a bond between Luc and Jane, but it's pretty forced and the relationship between Luc and his sister feels very hollow and forced as well, and at times a little off-putting.

This was the second book I've read by Rachel Gibson, and I think it will be my last. She's not a terrible author but there are certain things about her writing style that just don't suit me. In "Simply Irresistible" she was obsessed with the main character's D-cup bra size, and that was all you heard about.

I usually do not read "romance" or "chick lit" fiction, but based on the almost-unanimously positive reviews I had read about this book (including here, on the Amazon.com website), I bought this title as a spur-of-the-moment purchase - and I was NOT disappointed! If you are looking for a really fun book to read, with two very likable main characters (who you root for to get together), good supporting characters, and a breezy, sassy sense of humor, look no further! Jane and Luc (the two main characters) are much more than what they appear (brainy, uptight, "mousy" reporter and macho, arrogant, shallow jock), on the surface. The more I learned about each of these two individuals, as the reader (and the more these two characters learn about each other as the story unfolds), the more I wanted them to be happy... and end up together! Their chemistry is sizzling! This book is a really great fun read, that will make you believe in "happily ever after". It's a keeper, and it gets an enthusiastic "thumbs-up" from this (usually) literary fiction reader!

Jane Alcott, columnist for the Seattle Times newspaper, has been given a special writing assignment. She is to travel with the Seattle Chinooks professional hockey team and cover their games. Progressing from the fluff writing of her "Single Girl" column to sports reporting will be much different, but she needs the extra money. The Chinooks' players are less than thrilled about a woman following their team, especially the very private hunk of a goalie, Luc "Lucky" Martineau. Luc earned the nickname ,"Lucky", for his ability to score with the ladies off the ice, and not allow opposing teams to score on the ice. Between the team members not answering Jane's questions, and their locker room antics, she finally gets fired. But after her exiting speech leads to a game victory, the team decides she's good luck, and it's up to Luc to convince her to come back.
Luc's not interested in a petite plain jane with a black and gray wardrobe and cow print pajamas. At least not until this sassy lady beats him at darts, and shows up at a party sporting a little red dress, new haircut, red lipstick and stiletto heels. But Jane is keeping a secret. For she's the author of the racy column, "Honey Pie", which has all the guys talking.
This was my first read by Rachel Gibson, and I can't wait to get my hands on more of her work. I absolutely loved this book! It was fun, fast-paced, and extremely sexy. Luc has got to be one of my favorite romance heroes ever. And I have to say I'm not really in to tatoos, but Luc has a tatoo you just got to read about! Oh Baby! Both this book and Luc are keepers!
