Review on the short side today, cos the Turkey needs to be cooked. Liked this one. Like Rachel Gibson's writing style. Sebastian and Clare had known each other for years. He was the Gardner's son, she was always tagging after him when they were kids. He moved away, became a journalist, did not get back to see his Dad very often and had a bit of a strained relationship with him. Her fiance is caught doing the business with the Sears repairperson. Clare breaks off the engagement, gets drunk, e
Clare Wingate's carefully ordered life fell apart before her eyes when she walked in on her fiance playing cowboy with the Sears repairman on the closet floor. But she's determined to set it aside til her best friend gets married. When she accidentally gets loaded the night of the reception, she awakens to find herself in a hotel room with a man she's known all her life but hasn't seen for ages.

Sebastian Vaughan has known Clare since they were kids but seeing her in a sexy pink thong has put a d
When life gets you down and your find out your fiancee is cheating on you, hide your sadness at the wedding party and get drunk! That’s what romance author Clare Wingate does, expect she finds herself in bed with an old familiar face from her childhood who made her life hell . Hauling tail outta there Clare tries to put the whole thing out her mind and get back to her life, if only the man from her dreams or nightmares and so called one-night stand would leave her be: Sebatian Vaughan.

Well, I knew it couldn't last. After eight straight 5 star Rachel Gibson reads, I knew I was tempting fate. It sort of crashed and burned for me with this book, the first one I've read from the Writer Friends series. The premise sounded good to me--romance writer Clare catches her fiance in bed with another (a man!), turns her back on looking for Mr. Right and hooks up with childhood friend (sexy world renowned journalist/commitment-phobe Sebastian) in a "friends-with-benefits" arrangement, but ...more
Normally, this would be my type of book. The H/H sharing parts of their childhood, an obnoxious hero who loves to tease an uptight heroine, and a heroine who really has had the worst luck wiht men. But, somehow, it just wasn't as good as my expectations.

I loved the childhood connection parts. They were cute, though I wish there was more mentioned. And the general set up was so promising. But as we get to know Clare, she becomes a so-so heroine. I think its because she is described as a girly-gir

3/3.5 Stars

This was a bit of a slower grab for me and I was surprised. The book started out with the "walk of shame" and had me laughing, but then the connection was broken and slow coming back. I did, in the end, enjoy the book, but not as much [or nearly as much] as others by this author.

Not sure I'm as keen on the "Writer's series", but am moving to another .. running out of RG reads. Not a happy sitch.

You may enjoy this one more than, I. It was good, so don't let me deter you.

Happy Reading!
Rachel Gibson is an auto buy for me from now on!!!!
Light and fluffy. Just what I needed.

Charming allergic-to-commitment hero who thinks he's getting what he wants when the heroine proposes a protecting-her-heart, friends-with-benefits arrangement. I was afraid the heroine was going to be one of those prissy rich girls, but I found her very easy to relate to and quite a sympathetic character. I loved the hero's point of view in this book, and it was really sweet to see the little things he did and thought that clued us in to his feelings even be
(3.5 stars) I vacillated between giving this book 3.5 or 4 stars, but finally settled for the former. Once Clare and Sebastian start their relationship, the book really takes off, but I wish it had happened earlier. I enjoy antagonistic relationships between the hero and heroine, but if it goes on for too long one starts to wonder how believable a lasting romantic relationship between the two of them is. Clare and Sebastian rub each other the wrong way pretty much all the time until they sleep t ...more
Really, I think I would rate this a two and a half. I'm In No Mood For Love follows up Sex, Lies and Online Dating, except the main character is Lucy's friend Clare, bodice-ripping romance writer extraordinaire. She becomes entangled with her childhood nemesis Sebastian after attending Lucy's wedding and then finding her fiancee Lonny having sex with the Sears repairman in her closet.

This book, as opposed to the first in the series, is much harder to read.

And once again, it goes from naughty se
I have to say, the first half part of this book was more a 3 stars than a 4. It was a little booooooring. The heroine was boring and her life was boring too. I suppose she needed to be injected with life and that when the hero came.

I liked very much how their relationship developed, from just friends to "friends with benefits" and then to a couple.

I think this phase of "friends with benefits" is always complicated for a woman. Usually they're involved and it's not "just sex".

BTW the book was goo
2½ stars.

Not enough romance! What a shame since Clare is a romance writer. After reading the other three books from the series (in no particular order), I was so looking forward to Clare's story. It took me a while to get my hands on this book. In this case, it is certainly not worth the wait.

Too much reminiscence about the past and family problem to really concentrate on the build-up of the characters relationship with one another. I thought the first chapter was great, but it went spiraling d

Recommends it for: Readers who like a little spice with their romance
A sweet romance about love sneaking up on a 30-something couple when they least expected, and least WANTED it to. There were really sexy moments, great lines, and even (for me) one or two tear-inspiring scenes. And, of course, the requisite HEA.

Clare had to unexpectedly run home before her best friend Lucy’s wedding only to catch her fiancé Lonny in the middle of “THE act” in her closet with the Maytag man. At the wedding she drowns her sorrow’s which champagne, Jager and bad karaoke. When she wakes up naked in a hotel room she is mortified and when the man walks out of the bathroom and it’s her childhood crush Sebastian she wishes she could take back the whole night!

Rachel Gibson is always my author to reach for when I want the romance tri-fecta...steamy, cute and funny. In typical Gibson fashion, I'm in No Mood For Love delivered.

In continuation with the Writers Series, we pick up with the uptight do-gooder, Clare. She finds out her beloved finance is in fact gay, though everyone else know a long time ago. In her drunken stuper at Lucy's, (protagonist from the previous book, Sex, Lies and Online Dating), wedding, she ended up in a hotel room with a hangov

Loved it >_4,5/5

Lucy's a writer of historical romance novel, who always sucker for Mr. Right and Happily Ever After.
Unfortunately she's a magnet for Mr. Wrong.

Her fiancee having sex with another man in her bathroom-in her own damn house! LOL

So, she gets herself drunk..
The next morning she woke up -half naked- and then her childhood nightmare who turned sexy journalist steps up from showers.
Now, Sebastian Vaughan becomes her adult sexy nightmare..

This was a quick read, but I didn't like it as much as I remember liking another of Rachel Gibson's books (one I read so long ago that I don't recall the name). That was the reason I picked this one up.

This tells the story of romance writer Clare, who walks in on her fiance with a another man on the day of her friend's wedding. At the wedding, she gets sloshed, and wakes up in the morning with Sebastian Vaughn in a hotel room - wearing only a thong and with no memory of what happened. This sets
Clare Wingate, romance novelist, ex fiance to a loser, and woman with the nastiest hangover of her life. Clare had the right to go wild—after all, she'd been knocked off her dyed-to-match shoes after finding her own fiance in a compromising position with the washing machine repairman. Clearly her society wedding is off. Enter Sebastian Vaughn. She'd known him since they were kids. But Sebastian pushed all the wrong buttons—and some of the right ones, too. Clare is in no mood for love—not even fo ...more

I have rated numerous books by Rachel Gibson five-stars and I thought that in this case I would too but somehow this book wasn't that freat for me.

I liked the book but it was lacking something I couldn't exactly name. Rachel Gibson is one of my favorite contemporary romance writer and I loved how she mixes in humour with smartass heros and heroines.

This is the second book from the series "Writer Friends" and it focuses on Clare Wingate a
Clã dos Livros
Clare é uma autora de romances femininos. Históricos, românticos e com uma pitada erótica. Sempre acreditou no amor, na paixão e no felizes para sempre. Mas seu destino parece estar brincando com ela.

"Ela escrevia sobre o amor. Histórias profundas, emocionantes, lindas. Mas era um fracasso total no que dizia respeito ao amor na vida real. Como podia escrever sobre o amor? Saber sobre o amor e senti-lo, mas ainda assim, entende-lo tão mal?
Várias vezes?"

Após uma enorme decepção amorosa.

Damn! Where was Sebastian when I was on the lookout? Clearly not in the right country when he was doing his journalistic duties! ;) Enjoyed the easy read, the 'just enough' detail without going overboard and the funny situations Claire and Sebastian got themselves in. I hated the fact that she had to have it all to be happy, even though at times I found that she was happiest on her own and just needed the 'good time' every now and then. ;)
ชุด writer friends เล่ม 2 ค่ะ สนุกพอๆ กับเล่มแรก ตอนแรกๆ จะไม่ค่อยชอบพระเอกนิสัยเกเร ชอบแกล้งแคลร์ตั้งแต่เด็กๆ เช่นดึงหางเปีย หาเรื่องประหลาดๆ มาหลอก (โตแล้วพอเจอหน้าก็ยังแกล้งอีก) แต่อ่านไปๆ กลับชอบ Sebastian มากขึ้นเรื่อยๆ จนกระทั่งจบ ซึ่งคิดว่าชอบหนังสือแบบนี้นะคะ แรกๆ ยังเฉยๆ แล้วสนุกมากขึ้น ชอบมากขึ้นในตอนท้าย (ดีกว่าเล่มที่ดูเหมือนจะสนุกช่วงแรกแล้วพอตอนจบผิดหวัง)
Her books are always delightful brain candy. If anybody wants to stick her books in a time capsule folks in the future will get a great feel for what kind of guy is wicked attractive to ladies in the early part of the 21st century. Gibson manages to put in little details beyond the tall, dark and handsome stuff which paint a vivid picture of the hero. Yum.

No creo que lo llegue a terminar este año, lo dejaré de proyecto para más adelante sin descartarlo del todo. Se está volviendo una espina en mi costado, u_u
I liked this book better than the first in the series. There was a lot more character development in this book, and a more gradual relationship development. However, some parts of this just dipped too far into cheesy as opposed to modern romantic. The introduction of Clare's writing was inconsistent, and I would have rather had all or nothing. If each chapter had begun with a small section, it would have made more sense.
The turnaround after the two main characters have a fallout just felt too f
I'm on a Rachel Gibson streak right now. She's quickly becoming my favorite romance author.
Another cute and fun read from Rachel Gibson. This one continues the Writer Friends series and features Clare, a romance writer in the group of 4 friends. Clare has just found out her fiancé is gay and is devastated. She begins to question why she is attracted to jerks and why every one of her relationships end in heartache. On the day she finds her fiancé having sex with the repair man, she gets drunk and wakes up to find herself naked in a hotel room. The man she wakes up to is childhood frien ...more
A really entertaining read that for me is worth 3.5 stars. Now I'm intrigued to read the whole series thanks to this lady's writing style. And if it hadn't been for the descriptive "loving" scenes -that made me squeal and skip to the hypotetical "The other day..." thanks to the fact that my mental age is still of a five-year old and I can't help not feeling uncomfortable and intruding, though I know there are way more descriptive novels out there ("50 Shades Of Grey" I'm looking at you)-, maybe ...more
