Have you ever fallen in love against your will? It's another brilliant, sexy romantic offering from Rachel Gibson--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Rachel Gibson began her fiction career at age sixteen, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car's broken glass all about. She told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit-and-run and they believed her. She's been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.

If you like her books, then definately give this a go :)
The story focuses on rich girl Clare, horrified to return home unexpectedly and find her fiancé Lonny getting frisky with the washing machine repairman. Getting drunk to forget her troubles, Clare is even more mortified to wake up after her best friends wedding and find herself in bed with Sebastian Vaughan, her childhood menace and the last person on earth she should *ever* be in a compromising position with. This novel follows the ups and downs of Clare's life as she tries to come to terms with her betrayal as well as ignore the persistent overtures of hunky journalist Sebastian.
Granted, this was a fairly predictable plot and the reader knows what is going to happen in the end, but that didn't take away any of the nice writing style and the well-done characterisation. I think a lot of people can sympathise with Clare's predicament, as well as her constantly overbearing mother and lack of a father figure in her life. Emotions were conveyed nicely. Sebastian too, had depth, which made a nice change from a lot of your average chicklit- and there were some interesting family dynamics going on all round.
I have marked this book down because like I say, the romance aspect was quite slow burning here- it does take a long time to get going, so if you enjoy pacey romance novels then you might want to give this book a miss. The ending too, felt a bit rushed. Also, I did pick up on a couple of spelling/grammar errors that I found distracted me- this wasn't a kindle version after all! Nevertheless, if you want your guaranteed HEA then this is the book for you.
I started this book and was immediately concerned that rather than the ‘put the brain in neutral and have a feel good read’ I had bought something deeper. This book is a novel and it is a novel I just couldn’t get myself into, however, that is perhaps because it is not what I thought I was buying.
If you want to read something more than simple romance and are looking for a novel then this may be the book for you.
To explain why I wasn’t taken with it myself, I know times have changed since I was the age of the heroine but I took an immediately dislike to someone who gets herself so drunk that she ends up in bed with a stranger – twice, although the events were years apart. I persevered with the reading, however, and although I still felt as soon as the heroine would get into difficulty her ‘default’ would be a drunken night with anything in trousers I did begin to tolerate her.
The hero was OK but why he was hung up on this particular woman I couldn’t fathom. He must have met far more interesting women with his job as an international freelance journalist.
Then there were the many pages where the hero and heroine didn’t have anything written about their romance at all but we were reading about the hero’s life so far and how he was trying to restore his relationship with his father. Also, similar pages regarding the heroine and her relationship with her mother.
When I buy a romance I want to switch off and enjoy a bit of bliss which I know will come in the closing chapters. I read history and historical biography where the endings are not always ‘pink and fluffy’ so from chit lit that’s what I am after.
I haven’t finished this book. I have put it down twice and made myself pick it up again but get bogged down again in detail I have no interest in so I haven’t finished it, although I did read the epilogue so I most likely won’t ever read it through now.
I’ve given three stars because although it’s not a book I found engaging I believe there are many people out there who may enjoy it.
If you liked reading my honest opinion, please give me a vote so I can get closer to the top reviewers. Thank you.
