I’ve been wanting to read this author seems like forever! I finally took the plunge and decided to read out of order, which is mostly what has kept me from trying her in the past. THE ART OF RUNNING IN HEELS was a fun hockey romance and a great sampler for me of Ms. Gibson’s style. It has left me wanting to read more for sure.
Lexie is the daughter of the Seattle Chinooks coach. She’s also a business owner trying to get some exposure for her doggie clothing line who decided the best way to get free advertising was to go on a reality TV dating show. Except she didn’t expect too actually win and end up about to get married to the eligible bachelor. So she does what any sane young woman would do in her situation. She ends up running away the day of the wedding, dress and all. And that’s what lands her right on Sean’s lap. Sean, who plays for the Chinooks and is one of the players her father dislikes.
The great thing about this book is that I feel like it’s very light-hearted and even if some things can’t be taken too seriously, it brought a smile to my face. Which is exactly what I like my cute contemporaries to do. It felt very reminiscent of Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Not too steamy, not too complicated, light-hearted fun with a sexy hero.
I can’t say Lexie was my kind of heroine which is probably one of the things that kept me from giving this a higher rating. Not quite TSTL but she was a bit immature in some respects and that detracted from her other accomplishments in my eyes.
If you are looking for some light-hearted, angst-free, cute hockey romance then I think this is the series for you.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
