Product Description

Amazon Review

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 facade. The layered characters, intriguing setting, and the novel's compelling emotional plot all add up to an excellent contemporary romance.

Jane Alcott, a Seattle Times columnist, 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 million-dollar 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 stilettos, Luc's affection fast forwards into a major case of 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? --Lois Faye Dyer, Amazon.com

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first book I have read by Rachel Gibson and I will definately be reading more of her books. This is a truly inspirational piece of work that encourages the dream that 'Brad doesn't always marry Jennifer and Ken doesn't always hook up with Barbie'and gives hope to anyone out there hoping to marry one of the Luc Martineaus of this world!
Luc Martineau is the famous goalie for the Chinooks hockey team and he's not particularly happy when Jane Alcott, the less than glamourous new sports reporter, joins the team for their hockey tour. Luc is every girls wildest fantasy and I have to say Ms Gibson's descriptions of him had be dribbling. I fell in love with him myself!
Both Luc and Jane have preconceptions of eachother and their relationship does not start on the right footing. However, as they get to know eachother things begin to sizzle and the passion and chemistry between the two characters is fantastic.
This is a brilliant book and I would recommend it to anybody!

Format: Hardcover
"See Jane Score" follows in the footsteps of Rachel Gibson's other novels, offering up a fiesty heroine Jane, a columnist for a newspaper, and a tough-guy hero, Luc, the first-string goley for the local hockey team (Seattle Chinooks.) Jane gets a surprise move to be a sports reporter, and specifically to follow the Seattle Chinooks, and to travel with them. Jane knows nothing about hokey, and so she goes about learning everything that she could before she has to write her first sports column, and ask the players intelligant questions.
Unsurprisingly, the team is less than thrilled to be having a reporter traveling with them, and even less thrilled that the reporter is a GIRL! Jane becomes the target of the players jokes, and they are looking for a way to get her off of their backs (being a superstitious lot, they don't like anything to change.) When they lose a game badly, they blame it on the female reporter traveling with them.
Needless to say, Jane does not let things end there, but I don't need to write a synopsis of the entire book. Jane and Luc make a believable couple in the world of romantic comedy. She is not the most glamorous female, or the most beautiful. She does have a lot of personality though, and she draws the reader into the book.
I recommend this book to anyone who has read Rachel Gibson's books before, or the books of Susan Anderson, or Julia Quinn. It has a joyful quality that makes the book a pleasure to read.

This was my first Rachel Gibson book and I thought it was brilliant!

Its your normal girl meets boy type of story - Luc Martineau is a goalie hockey player, and Jane Alcot is the reporter covering the games. He resents her being there and she doesnt like him very much, however despite how much they claim to dislike each other there is a very strong attraction between the two.

I thought the two main characters were very well written, the chemistry was written so well you could feel it whilst reading it. And all of the other smaller characters were very good and the book overall was very worth reading.

In fact I enjoyed it so much that I just had to go out and purchase more of her books lol

I started reading Jennifer Crusie books and Amazon reccommeded Rachel Gibson to me. I picked this up in a charity shop for that reason and I'm not disappointed. I couldn't put it down and ended up finishing it at 3am! It's funny and sexy without being patronising and a good light read. I've just bought three more to see what the rest of her books are like. If you like Rachel Gibson I think you'll like Jennifer Crusie. They both write books you can laugh at, cry at and get steamy about in just the right quantities.

This is the first book by Rachel Gibson that I have read. I found out about her while trying to find authors who wrote like Jennifer Crusie and I wasn't disappointed! The story is great, the romance is great and the love scenes...they're great too!!! Highly reccommend this book. I started reading it after I had got the kids in bed and couldn't put it down. Needless to say, I finished it at 1:30 in the morning, not a good idea when you get woken up at 6:30, but this book was worth it.

What a book!!! This is my favourite Rachel Gibson book. Everything about it made me smile. It was funny (I love the humiliation of the pre-game ritual), both main characters were great, the sexual tension was very beliveable, it gets pretty hot and steamy in places and has made me look at ice hockey in a new light. I couldn't put it down, and read it all in one go (until very late at night!!). Its just left me thinking..... I really want to see Luc's tatoo!!!

My favourite Rachel Gibson book. I started reading RG books with the Writers series and then moved to the Chinooks series and have now read every book she's written. This book (along with a few others) is by far my favourite.
I'm not a "hot chick" but with a little help (e.g. make-up, hairspray etc) I can look attractive so I completely associate with the "plain" Jane heroine that has so much to offer: humour, intelligence and spice. This combined with the macho Luc and his ever-so-hot sexy tattoo (I'm sure I had an unattractive drool going on while I was reading about it) makes for an engaging story. This fiery couple have scenes that make you laugh out load, until Jane gets Luc hooked forever...
I'm a sucker for a bit of a Cinderella moment (aka the transformation) and it's refreshing to read about a heroine that isn't stunning, perfectly and naturally beautiful.
I love this book and it's an absolute keeper. It made me laugh, emotional and turned on - everything a good quality chic lit should have to offer. I've got the Kindle version and think I'm mad enough about it that I'll buy a hardcover. If this doesn't get you hooked on the Chinook series and Rachel Gibson in general I don't know what will!
