Book Description

Jan. 16 2003 Avon Romance
This is Jane

A little subdued. A little stubborn. A little tired of going out on blind dates with men who drive vans with sofas in the back, Jane Alcott is living the Single Girl existence in the big city. She is also leading a double life. By day, she's a reporter covering the raucous Seattle Chinooks hockey team -- especially their notorious goalie Luc Martineau. By night, she's a writer, secretly creating the scandalous adventures of "Honey Pie" ... the magazine series that has all the men talking.

See Jane Spar

Luc has made his feelings about parasite reporters -- and Jane -- perfectly clear. But if he thinks he's going to make her life miserable, he'd better think again.

See Jane Attract

For as long as he can remember, Luc has been single-minded about his career. The last thing he needs is a smart-mouthed, pain-in-the-backside reporter digging into his past and getting in his way. But once the little reporter sheds her black and gray clothes in favor of a sexy red dress, Luc sees that there is more to Jane than originally meets the eye.

Maybe it's time to take a risk. Maybe it's time to live out fantasies. Maybe it's time to ... see Jane score.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Your Going To Love This Book!! March 26 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read! April 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars See Rachel Score with this one! March 13 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars See Jane Score is brilliant. March 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Many books come in my house and most of them go right back out the door to be donated to the library or sold when I am finished. However, there are a select few that I decide to keep and add to my collection. This is one definitely worth keeping.
I just finished reading the book for a second time within six months and was still able to laugh at loud at the antics of the characters, which were still relatively fresh in my mind from the first reading. See Jane Score does make me think of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' work, but contrary to some other opinions, I feel it measures up quite nicely.
I could see Jane and Luc falling in love with one another; it was almost as if I were experiencing it myself. The "love scenes" were *steamy* and *tender*. As another reviewer pointed out, even Jane's relationship with the team was a joy to read about. There is not much more a reader could ask for!
I am not going to get in to all of the details of the book as the other reviewers have done an excellent job. It goes without saying that I would highly recommend this book.
