Book Description

12 May 2011

Hey, pretty lady, haven't we met?

Yes, beautiful thirty-something Autumn Haven has definitely met hockey-superstar Sam LeClaire before. Several years ago she had a passionate, Vegas-inspired fling with him involving getting hitched in an Elvis-themed wedding chapel and ending with her waking up in a hotel room: alone, heartbroken... and pregnant.

So these days, reminding her ex-husband that she even exists isn't high on Autumn's to-do list. But they have a child, Conner, and suddenly Sam claims to have grown up, wanting to be more involved with his son. And handsome, drop-dead sexy Sam always gets what he wants. Being a good dad to Conner is one thing, but to her horror, Autumn realises she still finds it practically impossible to be around Sam without falling for his charms once again. And that's the last thing she wants... isn't it?

Sexy, funny, unputdownable - there's no one quite like Rachel Gibson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Read 19 May 2011
Format:Paperback
My summary of the book - After seeing and talking to Autumn at a wedding it jolts Sam into realising he needs to spend more time with his son but he starts to make the effort Autumn doesn't believe it is going to last and tries to protect herself and son as she knows her son will be upset. Slowly Sam makes the effort and spends more time which means more time seeing Autumn but she can't be around him without thinking about their past in Las Vegas.

Thoughts on the characters - Autumn experienced quite a weekend when she first meets Sam as she ends up married and pregnant and it changes her life. When Sam leaves her after that weekend it hardens her as she had to repair her broken heart and get on with her life and care for her son. This affects Autumn and Sam getting along when they are in the same room as she can't forgive him for what he done but she realises that he still is very attractive and she can't stop feeling attracted to him.
Sam changes through the book from a womaniser who cares about hockey but when Autumn tells him some home truths he realises he needs to change and be a better dad. As he makes the changes in his life he can't understand why he feeling attracted to Autumn as she is not his usual woman and the more time he spends with her and his son his feelings become confusing. When he realises what he wants he faces a struggle to convince Autumn.

Thoughts on the writing style - Really engaging and easy to read so you don't lose where you are or what is happening.

Overall thoughts - I love Rachel Gibson's books and I have to say I really enjoyed this one too. It was passionate, engaging and emotional. Well worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars familiar 2 Jun 2011
By scout
Format:Paperback
I am a big fan of rachel gibson, however am starting to think when Im reading that I have already read the book before. the characters and plot are similar to her last book leaving me slightly disapointed. dont get me wrong, i did enjoy it but if you fancy a good read then i would suggest some of her earlier work like sex, drugs and online dating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ms Gibson needs new material 16 July 2011
Format:Paperback
Rachel Gibson has always been an auto buy for me, but I haven't particularly liked her last few books so for the first time, I didn't automatically buy Any Man of Mine, but have waited until I got a copy from the Library rather than buy it.
My favourite novels of Rachel's that I read over and over are See Jane Score, Truly, Madly, Yours and Daisy's Back in Town. As much as I loved the Chinooks and some of the earlier novels related to this series, I do believe that she has now done this theme to death and should move on.
As for Any Man of Mine, it was very similar to Simply Irresistable only this time the father knew about his child. I think Rachel needs to think of some new plot lines and new ideas. This story just sort of plodded on with nothing really happening until the last chapter when it all speeded along and ended too quickly. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be from the reviews and I didn't think Sam was too bad, but as others have mentioned, there was no real chemistry between himself and Autumn. Even the sex scenes were quite tame compared to her other novels. It does seem like she just churned this one out. I hope things improve with the next one, which is surely going to feature Vince the brother from this novel. Again, I will bide my time and read the reviews first and get it from the library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not exciting 29 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for this book ever since I read the preview, and I have to say that it's been a let down.
I remember reading Nothing but Trouble (which is my favourite book) and hoping for something of the same but this book just does not have that edge. The characters are likeable enough, but I didn't feel the chemistry between the two.
In fact, I wished there was more of Conner (Autumn's five year old who is just so adorable).
The story felt too rushed, and Sam is not a hero that makes me swoon. Although, I doubt anyone would after Sebastian Vaughan from 'I'm in no mood for love' - talk about dreamy!)
Overall, the book is not bad, it's just not good enough to be a read again and again. But if you are a Rachel Gibson
fan (which I am) then you have to get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed 27 May 2011
By Sian Louise VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
After reading some of the reviews for this book I have to say I was a bit dubious to whether I would enjoy this or not.
I really worried I was going to hate the main character of Sam and find him lacking compared with the other "hero's" from Miss Gibson's previous books but I actually quite liked him. Yes he definately wasnt like previous male characters but he had his own charm....or rather lack of it.

I thought Autumn was a bit odd and I definately would have kept a grudge much longer and certainly wouldnt have let him get so close to me again without an apology, there was a lot of emphasis on how hot his body was and thats kind of shallow but hey its a romance all of the guys are always hot lol
I thought the character of Connor was very sweet and definately added to the story..but I did agree with Autumn's assessment of Sam that if she hadnt been pregnant and had his child, she probably never would have seen him again. I got the impression he wouldnt have gone after her.

I love the hockey aspect in this series of books in general and have to say I dont think I could watch a game without cringing at the violence and pain :)

I am also very intrigued by the character of Vince....could he be the hero for the next book?? I certainly hope so and I look forward to reading his story.

Overall this wasnt a bad book, it was much better than the last couple of books but still not up to the standard of See Jane Score or her Writer Friend's series. If you want to read Rachel Gibson's best work then start with those :)
