See Jane Score (Chinooks Hockey Team #2)
A little subdued. A little stubborn. A little tired of going out on blind dates with men who drive vans with sofas in the back, Jane Alcott is living the Single Girl existence in the big city. She is also leading a double life. By day, she's a reporter covering the raucous Seattle Chinooks hockey team—especially their notorious goalie Luc Martineau. By night, ...more
Me ha encantado Jane, he empatizado muchísimo con ella. ¿Que hay que crear un caparazón alrededor de ti para no sufrir? Pues se crea. ¿Que hay que echarle cara al asunto para no aparentar estar destruida? Pues se echa. Muy bien Jane.
Y Luc también me ha encantado. Aunque al principio se denota en él un poco de chulería propia de un deportista de élite, con pasta, co ...more
A few things I loved about See Jane Score:
1. The heroine isn't TSTL at all! She's professional, mature, and sweet. I loved Jane.
2. The hero is absolutely swoon-worthy, but not overly cliched.
3. The relationship between Jane and Luc develops naturally and realistically.
4. No over-the-top drama in here. Thank God.
5. Well-d ...more
I REALLY enjoyed this - I still have a soft spot for Rachel Gibson after all. Her Chinooks series is amongst some of my favourtie contemporary romances and as an added bonus, I happen to love sport. Gibson's combination of light humour, endearing heroines and reformed asshole heros makes her books the perfect little light reads (plus she doesn't overdo the steam and profane language is kept to a minimum - thank god I do dislike erotica).
Jane happens to be the shy sort which ...more
When I first read See Jane Score, I thought it was absolutely amazing and would have given it way more than five stars if I could have. I first read it from the library and immediately got it online afterwards, since I knew this would be a (multiple) future reread for me. I have already reread it once so far and although the second time, my rating went down to 4.5 stars, it is still definitely one of my favo ...more
I loved Luc and his uncomplicated life that was made complicated by Jane, a woman unlike any female Luc had dated. While at first she was a nuisance, he couldn't stop noticing her. And then eventually against his better judgement, didn't want to stop.
Jane was a very relatable character. She wasn't the 'barbie' style Luc often gravitated towards but da ...more
Quizás éste libro tiene una historia más bien tópica, el típico deportista cachas que está buenísimo, y la protagonista que es una periodista listilla, con pocas experiencias positivas en lo que a hombres se refiere. La trama empieza cuando a Jane le ofrecen que sea la reportera del equipo de hockey de los Chinooks y ti ...more

Original rating was 5 Stars. After a re-read, not sure I'd give it 5 Stars, but it remains one of my favorites at 3.5 Stars. I just love this author. ...more
Cute, light and entertaining story. It helped me get over my reading stump for which I'm very grateful. But I also recently re-read some of the Chicago Stars stories by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and my rating of this book is probably affected by comparison.
The storyline is fairly predictable:
Jane Alcott, tough and smart Seattle Times reporter with a horrible sense of style, is assigned to cover the Seattle Chinooks Hockey team. The team is not happy to have a woman reporter following them. Jane' ...more
I finished this book last night and while I remember most of what happened, nothing positive sticks out.
I didn't like the way Jane treated herself. Her low self-esteem was bad enough, but to then be in denial about it is just shitty icing on a crap cake.
I didn't like how the team treated Jane.
I didn't like the way Luc treated Jane.
I didn't like the way Luc treated Marie.
I didn't like how Jane wouldn't take any chances with Caroline.
I didn't like the way Jane treated ...more

The hockey action was great; the storyline not overly original but not bad. While I really liked the H/h as individuals, I just felt that I couldn't fully connect with them and was dubious as to how they connected together.
Jane Alcott started off as a wallflower reporter who found herself attracted and falling for Luc Martineau, the Seattle Chinooks' goalie. Their interactions started off cold and iffy but the gradual mutual attraction came through and they found themselves liking (and l ...more
I enjoyed this story, though I can't help feeling like the parts shouldn't have added up to as much fun as I had. The plot was predictable as were the characters so really, this is made engaging by the pacing and Gibson's skill in presenting the expected well and with enough heart for me to ca ...more
It's a really well-written and laugh-out-loud story. Yes, really laugh-out-loud. It's genuinely clever and funny. Luc Martineau the hot Canadian hockey goalie and Jane the reluctant sports reporter dislike each other ...more
Ma ciò è molto comune nel romance, perché descrivere grandi personaggi maschili è molto più facile.
E poi adoro l'hockey e la Gibson sa anche parlare di sport senza mai eccedere. È una grande serie, questa dei Seattle CHinook, la consiglio assolutamente (anche perché i primi due sono già stati tradotti in italiano, quindi è accessibile anche a chi non legge in VO). Non do 5 stelle, ma solo 4 ...more
This made for a sweet, light romantic read. I never really fell in love with the characters or storyline by it was still pleasant if you are looking for a simple, easy read. This would make a good beach read.
I really wish I could give this book a higher rating. It was a cute and fun read. Jane and Luc were both likable characters with plenty of chemistry. The storyline was good and the plot moved right along.
So, why didn't I rate the book higher? For three inaccuracies that drove me crazy.
1. San Jose has never had and arena named Compac Center--it was the Compaq Center (now named the HP Pavilion). I'll give this one up to a typo, but really, this should have been caught by and editor.
2. T ...more
