Book Description

What is Clare Wingate doing? One minute she's suffering in a pretty-in-pink gown she'll never wear again, and the next thing she knows it's morning . . . and she has the nastiest hangover of her life.

To make matters worse, she's wearing nothing but a spritz of Escada and lying next to Sebastian Vaughan . . . her girlhood crush turned sexy, globe-hopping journalist. Somewhere between the toast and the toss of the bouquet she'd gotten herself into a whole lot of trouble.

Clare had the right to go wild—after all, she'd been knocked off her dyed-to-match shoes after finding her own fiancé in a compromising position with the washing machine repairman. Clearly her society wedding is off.

But Sebastian pushed all the wrong buttons—and some of the right ones, too. Clare is in no mood for love—not even for lust—and wants to forget about Sebastian and his six-pack abs ASAP. But he isn't in the mood to go away, and his kiss is impossible to forget.



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this uninspired follow up to Sex, Lies and Online Dating, Gibson layers cliché upon cliché and tops her confection with a heavy frosting of exposition. The result is a tale more sickly than sweet, filled with characters as lively as the figurines atop a wedding cake. The heroine, romance writer Clare Wingate, is your typical good girl who's itching to go bad, and globe-trotting reporter Sebastian Vaughan, a man's man who hates to see a woman cry (almost as much as he hates shopping), is the one person who can draw out her naughty side. Readers may detect a whiff of romantic tension after a less-than-shocking revelation-involving Clare's fiancé Lonny, who's got a thing for pastels and a skill for flower arranging-leads a distraught Clare to a drunken encounter with Sebastian. But once Lonny is out of the picture, and commitment-phobic Sebastian agrees to become Clare's friend-with-benefits, the story spins its wheels waiting for Sebastian to realize his true feelings for Clare.

From Booklist

How's this for a bad day? You come across your fiance and the Sears repairman in the act, stand up in a friend's wedding with a smile plastered on your face, get smashed at the hotel bar, and wake up virtually naked with, not a stranger, but with your old childhood nemesis exiting the shower. Romance writer Clare Wingate is shocked and humiliated and can't remember a thing, and Sebastian Vaughan doesn't bother to enlighten her. But he's back in Boise, and now they can't help running into each other. He finds it ironic that she writes romances, and she finds his -commitment-free lifestyle a joke. But there's just something about him that makes her delude herself into thinking she can handle his suggestion of a friends-with-benefits relationship. Gibson's all-around great story has everything: excellent characters, amusing wit, and a real, believable romance. Gibson exceeds expectations with this terrific tale. Maria Hatton

3.0 out of 5 stars Luke-warm Romance October 5, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very luke-warm, inane, romance. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. The heroine is luke-warm, both in character and romance. She is one of the writers who is friends with Lucy, from SEX, LIES, AND ON-LINE DATING. It looks like each friend is going to have her own story. I didn't care for them as secondary characters and they make poor primary characters. It seems they only have a life in the books they write.

Clare Wingate writes romances. Her mother is ashamed of the books she writes. She catches her fiance in the closet, in more ways than one. First he is having an encounter with the washer repair man. Two he doesn't think he is gay. This is just one of several romances that have gone wrong for Clare. She immedately gets drunk and ends up in bed with the bane of her childhood. She thinks they have been intimate and he lets her think it. Only later does he tell her they just slept.

Sebastion is the son of her mother's gardner and handyman. He loves to give her a hard time. Later, only after she has gone through the embarassment of telling him she is aids free does he tell her they didn't do it. He was a lukewarm committment phobe.

Later, they decide to have an affair with no strings, sound familiar? Then of course after several months, she decides she loves him, so he splits. But he cannot stay away and so we have a happy ending. The romance was tepid, the plot was slow, the whole thing was just so forgettable. The last three novels by Ms Gibson have not been up to her standard. I really don't want to read any more tales of these four pathetic women. Alas, I noticed her next novel will be about Maddie Jones. You'll have to take your chances with this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Less than stellar October 1, 2006
By Schyler
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The title of this review pretty much says it all. While the book is still a decent romance novel, I was very disappointed throughout reading it (hoping it would get better) and even more so once it came to its end. I have come to expect better from Rachel Gibson (one of my 5 favorite authors up to now). The greatest disappointment lay in that there wasn't at least one line or scene which gave my heart a little squeeze or skip. The book was just so average and unexciting. (For a brief summary, see reviewer Harriet Klausner's description.)

Although I have to admit that part of the let-down might have come from months and months of waiting for this book (and having read the great 'preview'), I also think that the book was uninspired. And at least two sentences I have seen (almost) verbatim in previous Rachel Gibson books. Sure, an author should be allowed to repeat some lines (and I have noticed those 'repeats' before), but in this book, it started to be annoying. If there are going to be lines out of "See Jane Score", couldn't there also be the endearing thoughts Luc has about Jane, or the hot dialogue? Or the love and longing from "Truly Madly Yours"? It gets old to have a commitment-phobic guy in every book, to have the woman always realize she's in love first, to have an overly macho guy (is a man only a hot alpha male if he doesn't like - or pretends not to like - small dogs, can't tell colors, hates shopping, is lace-phobic, etc...?).

And while I appreciate the fact that 'romance novel' does not have to mean constant interaction between the male and female protagonists, but can also include great friendships and personal growth, I found the focus on the separate growth of these characters too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Gibson hit October 4, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Clare Wingate has given up on love. After finding her fiance in the closet with the Sears repairman, she decides a major life overhaul is needed. What she didn't expect was to wake up naked in a hotel room with her childhood nemisis, Sebastian Vaughan. Remembering him as the boy who threw mud on her white dress and explained to her about where babies come from, Clare has little hope she would like him much as an adult.

Sebastian Vaughan is back in Boise, Idaho to get to know his father. After the death of his mother, Sebastian realizes that he doesn't have all the time in the world to mend fences with his father. While Sebastian and his father, Leo, find their way to a father/son relationship, Sebastian and Clare find they have more in common than they thought.

As the two get involved, Clare is determined not to bring her expectations of love into a relationship of lust. It's not until Clare realizes she's almost 35 years old and in a relationship that's going nowhere that she knows she can't keep seeing Sebastian. Though she didn't expect it and didn't want it, she fell in love with someone who will never love her back.

Clare and Sebastian's relationship is highly entertaining. Throw in an obsessive-compulsive mother and a nosey group of friends and you have Clare's life. Clare is someone who has to talk herself into being in love to have sex. That has made for some interesting relationships. Sebastian spent his childhood moving from state to state with his mother, who could never decide on one man and stick with it. What these two have to go through is heartwarming and amusing.

More About the Author

With the publication of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Gibson's first book, readers discovered one of contemporary romance's freshest voices. Four of her novels were named among the Top Ten Favorite Books of the Year by Romance Writers of America.

Rachel's storytelling career began at the age of sixteen when she ran her Chevy Vega into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper and broken glass from the ground, and drove to her high school parking lot. With the help of her friend, she strategically scattered the broken pieces and told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit and run. They believed her, and she's been telling stories ever since.

When not writing, Rachel can be found boating on Payette Lake with Mr. Gibson, shopping for shoes, or forcing her love on an ungrateful cat.
