Tracy’s review of See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson.
This is Jane
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, she’s a writer, secretly creating the scandalous adventures of “Honey Pie” … the magazine series that has all the men talking.
Luc has made his feelings about parasite reporters — and Jane — perfectly clear. But if he thinks he’s going to make her life miserable, he’d better think again.
For as long as he can remember, Luc has been single-minded about his career. The last thing he needs is a smart-mouthed, pain-in-the-backside reporter digging into his past and getting in his way. But once the little reporter sheds her black and gray clothes in favor of a sexy red dress, Luc sees that there is more to Jane than originally meets the eye.
Jane and the goalie, Luc Martineau, seem to butt heads on a regular basis, but they are attracted to each other none the less. Of course this is not before he calls Jane sexless. Wow. It’s when Jane decides to finally let her fashion hungry friend fix her up a bit that things really start rolling.
See Jane Score is just an adorable, funny read. Jane and Luc, as well as the other characters in the book, are just very realistic and I appreciated that. I enjoyed watching Luc grow while dealing with his sister that had come to live with him and Jane coming out of her box a little bit.
The end of the book got a bit tangled/cluttered to my way of thinking but it didn’t detract from the story too much. If you’d like a quick, fun contemporary and especially if you like sports romances I highly recommend this one.
