Editorial Reviews Review

Setting: Seattle, Washington
Sensuality: 8

At long last, Seattle Times columnist Jane Alcott has a shot at a full-time assignment. She badly needs the income, but unfortunately, the opening is for a sports reporter traveling with the Seattle Chinooks hockey team and she knows nothing about the game. To add to her difficulty, the team doesn't want her, especially Luc "Lucky" Martineau, the Chinooks $33 million goalie. The team stonewalls when she tries to interview them and they haze her mercilessly; it isn't until the superstitious Luc decides that she brings good luck that Jane gets a shot at being a real journalist. But when her acceptance by the team leads to spending more time with Luc, Jane finds, to her dismay, that he’s more than a handsome, empty-headed sports jock and her heart is in danger.

For his part, Luc learns that behind "plain Jane's" boring dark clothing and black-rimmed glasses lies a quick wit, nerves of steel, and a personality that charms him. And when Jane appears at a team banquet with a new haircut, makeup, and a killer red dress with matching sexy stilettos, Luc's affection fast-forwards into a major case of serious lust. But if Jane lets herself fall in love, she'll have to find a way to explain the secret she's hiding before it becomes public knowledge and Luc's passion turns to hate. Can she bring herself to tell him the truth? And if she does, will he forgive her?

Set in the rough and tumble world of professional hockey, See Jane Score features an intelligent, likable heroine and a hero with depth beneath his sports jock façade. The layered characters, intriguing setting, and the novel's compelling emotional plot all add up to an excellent contemporary romance. Don’t miss this one. --Lois Faye Dyer

From Publishers Weekly

Anyone who has ever salivated over a sports pro or mooned after a movie star will relish this fanciful romance between brainy Seattle Times columnist Jane Alcott and hockey player Luc Martineau. Luc, nicknamed Lucky for his ability to score with women and keep his opponents from scoring on the ice, is less than thrilled to hear that Jane will be reporting on the team's games and digging into his unsavory past. Still, he can't help feeling attracted to the pint-sized writer, despite her drab clothes and unfortunate profession. For Jane, the assignment is the perfect opportunity to stop writing fluff and break into serious reporting. But following the progression of the puck turns out to be less challenging than getting the players to talk, particularly Luc, whose lusty looks make her want to ditch her black clothes and wear red. The two eventually wind up in bed together, but Luc's fear of commitment and Jane's fear of abandonment may keep them from taking the next step. Readers will find themselves cheering for the charming couple with the fervor of frenzied hockey fans. Like most fairy tales, this one involves an unlikely transformation (a red dress turns plain Jane into a seductress), but the minor contrivance won't dim readers' enjoyment of this witty, warm-hearted tale.

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.

This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I just loved it! Fast, funny, realistic and full of chemistry.
Aspiring journalist Jane Alcott is game to take on just about any job to gain experience and fill out her resume. She writes a "Single Girl in the City" column and she also secretly writes a steamy serial for a men's magazine. Now, she's been given the opportunity to add sports reporter to her repertoire when she's assigned to cover the Seattle Chinooks hockey team. The guys are less than enthusiastic about having her travel with the team and, boys being boys, you can imagine the hazing she has to endure! I must have laughed "Poor Jane" out loud hundreds of times! But winning over the guys is just one problem when you're a sports reporter carrying "Hockey for Dummies"!
Hunky goalie Luc Martineau initally ignores her, since he famously doesn't do interviews anyway, but he finds that he enjoys annoying and sparring with her. She may be short, but she's spunky, tough and can talk trash with the best of them! Luc's had a checkered past that he'd like to forget and he is trying very hard to put his "bad boy" image behind him. And now he has become responsible for a 16 year old sister he barely knows. The last thing he needs is some reporter snooping around.
The verbal sparks soon turn to a sexual attraction that neither really wants. His life is so crazy with career pressure, his awkward, difficult relationship with his sister, not to mention that Jane is hardly his type - short, small chested and smart are not usually qualities he looks for, and yes, he knows what that says "aboot" him! And Jane's bad boy radar is working over time. The last thing she wants is to be seduced then dumped or worse have her heart broken by a jock who normally dates empty-headed Barbie Dolls.

I really loved this book, couldn't put it down until it was finished.
Jane is a reporter who also writes a continuing story for a men's magazine, Luc is a hockey player with a dislike of reporters who has recently become the guardian of his teenage sister. Jane is assigned to travel with the team and cover all of the games. The guys are not thrilled (they do a little bit of harassing). Romance blossoms in the least expected place for Jane and Luc.
It's a very well-written, entertaining story. The situations are very believable, which I always like. It makes me laugh, makes me a cry, makes me shiver, and go how will she/he fix this?! I love a book that lets me run the gamut of emotions.
I always enjoy Rachel Gibson books, and John and Hal (retired from the Chinooks, they were in a previous book) make a small appearance with Georgie and Mae in this one.

with every book she writes. I think Gibson's talent lies in her ability to write sweet, light hearted romatic stories where the humor comes across as effortless and does not feel forced at any time.This book is an excellent example of her incredible talent. Jane Alcott's average looks and unasumming personality make her the least likely candidate to catch the eye of professional hockey player Luc Martineau. Luc is a hunky millionare playboy and the star goalie of the Seattle Chinooks, Jane is the short, plain reporter assigned to them.Lead by Luc the players do their best to make Jane's life miserable. They're driven by an irrational fear that a woman's presence might jinx their season (it seems hockey players are an extremely superstitious lot) and just plain ol' machismo. However, they have underestimated pint sized Jane, who gives just as good as she gets, especially to that annoying, sexist, conceited but oh-so delicious Luc. Can Luc get over his predilection for empty headed blonde Amazons and discover the beautiful woman that lies beneath Jane's fuddy duddy exterior? Maybe so but you'll have to read to find out!
This is definetely a keeper for me. Gibson knows how to write the ultimate alpha heroes and Jane is no slouch in the character department either. She represents the average modern working woman. She is you and me and boy is it satisfying to watch the average girl finally get her man!
Highly recommended!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fanatics of Rachel Gibson will realize that See Jane Score is a continuation of her deviant style of putting polarized opposites together. Wasn't her last effort, Lola Carlyle Reveals All - an unbelievable escapism of love between a swimsuit model and military spy?
In See Jane Score, Rachel Gibson dumps the stereotypical fantasy and points out - get real. Her female protagonist, Seattle Times Reporter Jane Alcott is assigned to the native Chinooks Hockey Team on a Sports Tournament coverage. She is immediately repudiated by the team because of their supersitition: women are jinx. Her drab black apparel and small breasts doesn't score well for the notoriously aloof but hunky golden player Luc Martineau either. It is before long they got her boot out - only to change their fickle minds when her departure well-wishing blessed them with a triumph.
See Jane Score is immediately a hysterically hilarious romp with Jane's sardonic wits and encounters especially in the locker room. Ms. Gibson 's scrupulous research on hockey sculpts the pulsating games and camaderie between the players through witty jargons, inside jokes as well as the pressure and sweat.
In all its slapstick laughter and wicked digs, See Jane Score is also a romance with dimensions. Jane considers herself a fraud being an anonymous sex columinst for a porn mag and a vulnerable girl at heart; Luc fears love as much as he is clueless to taking care of his adolescent sister Marie. Ms. Gibson injects a dose of searing intimacy and honesty towards her characters to make the Opposite + Tension and fairy-tale formula work to her favour. They are refreshingly matured and open about their feelings. Let's not forget the sex either. Ms. Gibson scores a hat-trick on that one too.
