Autumn sucht in Las Vegas das Glück – und findet einen Ehemann ...

Autumn Haven hatte eigentlich vor, bei einem Kurztrip nach Las Vegas ihr Glück im Spielcasino zu versuchen – und nicht nach einer feuchtfröhlichen Nacht neben dem Eishockeyspieler Sam Leclaire aufzuwachen, der sich auch noch als ihr frischgebackener Ehemann herausstellt. Doch Sam scheint es mit dem Bund fürs

I should start this review by saying that I’m a huge fan of Rachel Gibson and I was anxiously anticipating this book. I should continue this review by saying how disappointed I was after reading it. This book didn’t work for me at all; I can honestly say that the only redeeming quality about it was the writing style.

Any Man of Mine is book six in the series about the fictional hockey team the Seattle Chinooks but stands alone quite well so you can re

Despite the horn dog, rather immature (for a 35(?) year old man) hero, Any Man of Mine is yet another winner in the Chinooks hockey series...

Responsible, pretty red-head 25-year-old Autumn Haven is taking a much needed weeklong vacation in Las Vegas with a list of attractions she'd like to see/do. Not on that list is hooking up with a sinfully handsome, powerfully built blond stud like hockey player Sam LeClaire. But with the way Sam looks at her, and with the sparks flying, Autumn indulges her

This book pisses me the hell off. I don't think that Autumn should of had taken him back. He's a a complete dick and I hate him. His flaws are just too many, too great, and he doesn't deserve a happily-ever-after. He is every woman's worst relationship nightmare. A wild fling that makes you feel something, impregnation, and then desertion.It's complete bullshit what Sam said about falling in love with her 5 years ago, and Autumn, as a smart, well written character really broke my heart when she ...more
This book had me confused about how should I rate it because there were some very nice scenes, it was well written, had a nice -even if he didn't seem so at first- hero and a 5 year old that actually acted like one. In the end however, I was left with the feeling of lost potential.

Autumn and Sam met in Vegas six years ago where they spend a hot, wild weekend that ended in a hasty marriage, a pregnancy and a quick-as-lightning divorce. Now, they are the parents of Conner, a five year old boy, but

2.5/5 stars:

This series has a few things going for it that I really enjoy:

1. Hockey players – Yummy
2. Seattle – Maybe it’s just me, but when a story is set in my city, I love reading about a character walking down the street and thinking, hey! I was walking down that same street during lunch. Yeah, it’s probably just me.
3. Hockey IN Seattle – which we don’t have. Go Vancouver!

So all that said, this series setting is one for me. I’ve enjoye

This is such a horrendous end to my most favourite contemporary book series ever.
Georgeanne and John had a similar story line, their story is my second favourite chinooks book (first being Mark and Chelsea ' story) but this? This s not Rachel Gibson at all. Even the writing style didn't charm me like it usually does.

Why 3 stars?
1 star for Sam's story and other 2 for Mark and Chelsea. The only thing I loved about this book was their scene. It was hilarious and amazing. Marsea is bae and I'll for
To review this is weird for a couple of reasons, several of them I'll try to point out. Some are just personal crap. While I truly liked how Gibson was able to make the reader feel what the heroine, Autumn, felt, this is precisely the point that makes it hard to actually like the story.

Five or six years ago, after her mother died: Autumn spends a week in Las Vegas where she meets Sam, has sex, falls in love and marries him. And he's a jerk, gone before she's up without any note or reason.

4 stars.

Any Man of Mine was a great little read and perfect to help me get over the trauma that Jet inflicted in Rock Chick Rescue.

It was quick and engaging and the H/h had great chemistry but if you're looking for something that will change your life, this isn't it. It was light and entertaining and gave me an all over happy feeling.

When I read the blurb I wondered if this would start from the beginning when Autumn and Sam first met and then zip to current day but it didn't - which I thought wa

I can't tell you why I have liked this series so much. There are so many reason that I shouldn't. All of the heroines are either in a dry spell or didn't really care for sex until the hero comes into their life. They all have a secondary character (friend/mother/sister/assistant) who has a sex life encouraging them to date. They all have a stereotypical gay friend. None of the heroines know anything about hockey or either don't like it because God forbid a woman should like hockey and be able to ...more

Let me just start by saying I have loved all of the Chinooks Hockey Team series and this one is just as good!! I just couldn't give it the love of 5 stars, for a couple of reasons. One, I think it was a little short, under 200 pages. My second complaint was with Sam LeClaire, the supposed hero in our story. Now, let me just preface this by saying there is a lot of things I loved about this book, but I just couldn't wrap my brain around why Sam should be forgiven, now I understand 'forgive and fo ...more

First things first- I absolutely LOVED this book ! Not for the characters but rather the lessons learnt from the mistakes made by the characters.

PLOT – Sam Leclaire is a shallow and superficial hockey star. He drinks and dates a new model every week. On a trip to Vegas, he is enamored by a redhead named Autumn Haven, spends a few nights of passion with her and on the spur marries her. Only to leave her the next day all alone- pregnant divorced and confused.

Any Man of Mine was a delight. Sam and Autumn are exes who were together over a weekend in Vegas, and ended up with a son to remember it by. I’m not traditionally into stories having a child or pregnancy in the storyline, but I think that this story could only have been told with a child forcing Sam to re-evaluate his life.

Sam and Autumn reconnect several years later at a wedding that Autumn has planned, with much acrimony between them over a bitter start to their joint custody. I loved the cont
Like any other RG's book, a fast paced story. This one is better than Nothing But Trouble (Chinooks Hockey Team, #5) by Rachel Gibson but isn't as fulfilling as True Love and Other Disasters (Chinooks Hockey Team, #4) by Rachel Gibson.

From the start, for the life of me I just couldn't make myself to like Sam. I only see him as a pretty face on a hot body, no in-depth feelings or thoughts.

And don't get me started on Autumn. I just hate a wavering heroine who can't take a stand for what she wanted. First she fell in love with Sam, then she got over him, then she was at peace with him for rejecting her, then she felt lonely and
I wasn't a hockey fan. I am not always a fan of second chance story lines. I don't like it when children are affected by their parents acrimony. So how come when I find myself sitting here to write this review, a number of weeks after I finished reading this book, I want to dive back into it, the images strong and clear, the emotions compelling? I find I have to rate this book a five star DIK because I will read this again.

Rachel Gibson is one of those authors I like to read from time to time. I've enjoyed most of her books. This was no exception, although, I found the story just so so. This lovers reunited story was just ok. Really, I wasn't a big fan of Sam's in the beginning but he did get better. He was horrible to Autumn after Vegas. At least he changed in his behavior as a father after Autumn blew up at him. However, the way they got back together just seemed too quick for me and it was before Sam even apolo ...more
Oh. So good. So so so good. This hit the spot like a bowl of delicious soup on a cold and rainy day. Yeah. That good.

There is something I have to say about Rachel Gibson: I do not like her heroes. Ohhhh Sam would flirt and I would cringe. Me and Sam, we wouldn't have worked out. No sir-ee. I wouldn't have been able to stay through a conversation. But I liked Sam with our heroine, Autumn and I liked their predicament. I liked how the characters change during the book (and there are big changes),

I really thought I was going to love this story (even with the child in the mix), but the hero is a jerk. One minute the author makes the hero appear that he is going to appear as this great dad to 5 year old son (he teaches him about eating healthy, asks him about his friends at school), but the next minute the little boy asks if his dad could take him fishing and the hero's reply was "maybe next summer". (page 72-75) Then the little boy talks about dads that bring their kids to school and

Случайно увидела книжку в книжном магазине, прочла аннотацию и поняла, что сейчас это то, что нужно. Мне хотелось такого легкого романа, рассчитанного на сегодняшние реалии, без каких-либо фантастических событий, а как можно более приближенного к жизни.

Сразу скажу, что очень уж я люблю взрослых персонажей, они хотя б не ведут себя как дети. А также моя книжная любовь - это мужчины с детьми; мужчины, любящие детей; отцы-одиночки и т.д. Мне нравится читать про то, как они общаются с детьми, как с

I'm a huge fan of this series. I love how Rachel Gibson makes me fall in love with all of these hockey players. But, with every book, there has always been a scene stealer. Sam LeClaire. Like most of the hockey players, Sam was a womanizer and spent more time in the penalty box than anyone else. I've been hoping for his story for years and was so excited when it was finally announced a few years ago. They say 'Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,' but that isn't true when a wild and crazy ...more
How come Jane and Luc never visit his former teammates? Just wondering.

Anyway, Going in I know exactly what I'm going to get when I read a Rachel Gibson. It's why she's an auto-buy for me. I know I'll get a great story, solid writing and fun chemistry. I got all that and more in this book. Autumn and Sam are both well-written yet flawed characters. I enjoyed them a lot. I really liked watching them circle and get to know each other. There's a lot of push and pull and it was great to be a part of

3.5 stars. Is it possible for a romance hero to be too realistic? Rachel Gibson’s latest, Any Man of Mine, is another entry in her hockey series. See Jane Score is one of my favorite Gibson titles as is The Trouble with Valentine’s Day (which featured an ex-hockey player from the same team), so I had high hopes for this addition to her line-up. And it was everything that makes Gibson so much fun: witty, lots of physi

Meh, this book was okay. I don't know if I expected something unrealistically spectacular or what, but I did not connect with these characters. The hero, Sam, is a selfish man that the great white clouds parted on and said "You need to spend more time with your son".... who by the way is already five! The heroine, so unmemorable that I can't recall her name at this point, has their son, who was a conception from too much booze and a trip to the alter at Vegas, promplty followed by a quick divor ...more

Another chick-lit, yeah, it seems that everything I read nowadays were either short reads or chick-lits and probably on more occasions, both.

Like I said another day, I would give other works of Gibson another try and I find this better than the Chinooks Hockey Team, #5 and I quite enjoyed this better even if I have read stories like this before and all, I can't just get past on stories or rather romance stories that are about giving second chances because I know it was hard especially when emoti

Stopping at 25%. Dunno just can't get into it. For one thing my interest in sports is -0. The characters aren't very endearing or interesting to me. I'm sure it's a matter of taste.

Not my cuppa.... I care nothing about sports, don't know the recurring characters from previous books, and am not real drawn by the setup. Aside from the fact that H is rich and famous, this seems like a sadly common scenario of single mom dealing with trying to protect their child from a irresponsible dad who only pl

Lo mejor de toda la historia es que pasear que la pareja romántica ya habían tenido algo en el pasado,su nueva relación no es un instalove.Se desarrolla poco a poco y ella se da su lugar. Ésta serie me ha gustado bastante y eso que nunca la he leído en orden de publicados,menos mal que son hist
