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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Who knew horseshoes could be so sexy? Aug. 2 2010
By Rory Girl TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This early installment in the Chinook series was a bit weak in comparision to the later books. It had the same build up of sexual tension and anticipated but somehow the relationship between Luc and Jane seems to be overshadowed by the other things happening in the story. The "Honey Pie" serial angle was silly to me and I didn't enjoy how that all played out in the end. I didn't find myself sucked into the story like I have the two later installments in this series. Luc is of course the sexy goalie of the Chinooks and Jane is the nosy journalist the team gets stuck with for the season. Neither of them get developed enough to really get emotionally invested in them and their story. I would say this installment was a stand alone piece and is not required reading for the later books in the Chinook stories. It was an OK read but I just didn't feel the same magic as Nothing But Trouble and True Love and Other Disasters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Positively Delightful July 24 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be absolutely delightful. It was a real page turner. I stayed up until 5 am reading it. This book won't be winning any Pulitzer or Man Booker Prizes any time soon, but I think that it deserves five stars for what it is: a highly entertaining, humourous, heart-warming tale of opposites attracting. This book was very skillfully written. The plot was entertaining and the characters had great chemistry. This book would be a good one for any single girl who believes herself too plain to attract the attention of a premier bachelor. This book illustrates that Ken doesn't always choose Barbie. I can't think of a single thing that I would change about this book. Give it a read. I think that you'll like it.

By killerwhaletank TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Quick Chick Lit... May 13 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"See Jane Score" by Rachel Gibson is a good "chick lit" read. It features Jane Alcott who, as a reporter, is somewhat of a dichotomy. She writes "Single Girl in the City" for the Seattle Times, yet she also writes a monthly column, which is pretty racey and features "Honey Pie" and her escapades.
In truth, Jane is NOTHING like Honey Pie and only a few people know that she actually writes the column. When she lands a job covering Seattle's hockey team, she has to travel with the team and interview them in the locker room. The team does not take kindly to women reporters and her life is very lonely at times.
Things start to get interesting with Lucky - the star goalie of the team. And their adventures turn this into a fun, quick, read.
