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 hes 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. Dont miss this one. --Lois Faye Dyer --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

She meets Luc. He is a super star goalie. He is a man who dislikes reporters, likes big chested blonde women and has a reputation. He is now caring for his much younger sister.
He has no idea about teenage girls, their ups and downs and their drama. He does not like to fail at anything, that includes taking care of his sister. He will make her happy if it kills him.
Luc thinks Jane is a “natural girl.” She is not anyone who would interest him.
Jane thinks Luc is a terrific looking guy, but he only dates Barbies, so he is out of her league.
Nothing is exactly as it appears.
Jane is a strong and determined woman. She is obsessed with her job. Developing relationships is not her strongest quality.
Luc is obsessed with his job. Like most professional athletes, he is focused on staying healthy and not losing his place on the team.
The conversations between these two are terrific and funny and filled with sexy suggestions.
Ms Gibson writes wonderful books. Her heroines are powerful and quirky. Her heroes are handsome and not quite who they seem. Her dialog is always humorous.
All in all, this is a terrific book. Although this is part of a series, it works fine as a stand alone read.
If you like passion and humor and love all wrapped up in one story, this is a book you will enjoy.
I felt a bit disappointed because I had higher expectations in the beginning.
Luc was awesome and hot! He's already overcome some of his past demons, and you can see his character develop through the course of the story. He has become the guardian to his much younger sister, and as a result he matures a lot in his views of women. I loved how his feelings for Jane gradually grew.
The development of the relationship was great, lots of ups & downs and some hilarious moments. I couldn't put the book down, I was dying to see what would happen next. I had previously read the first book in the Chinooks series, "Simply Irresistible" and liked it a lot, I thought this one was even better (I related more to the main character.) These books could stand alone, but I prefer to read books in order if there are connections between them so I will list them. I just downloaded the next one, and can't wait to read it!

She is immediately rejected - none of the players want the petite reporter in the locker room, particularly since she knows little about hockey (except for those quick lessons in the "Hockey for Dummies" book she bought), and of course, she does not know where to focus her eyes.
But no one wants her there less than Luc Martineau, the team's star goalie. He hates reporters due to press problems in his checkered past. He just wants to live a quiet life while caring for his teenage sister. But he cannot resist bantering with Jane and trying to make her blush. Since she is kinda plain and not his type, he wonders why he is so drawn.
In an act of defiance after being unceremoniously fired from her job because the team loses a game (those hockey players are a superstitious lot), Jane enters the locker room and gives them all a piece of her mind before dashing out. When they win the game, she is immediately called a good luck charm, and at every game, must perform that same "pep talk" as a nightly ritual. These scenes are hysterical to say the least.
While Honey Pie is sexy and provocative, the real Jane is not. She prefers clothing in all shades of blah - grey and black. Once she dons a little red dress, she has Luc seeing more than red. Luc and Jane start to see each other secretly. Of course, those Honey Pie articles end up surfacing, causing a rift between them.
It is a great story with exciting characters, comical situations, and just the right amount of romance. This is one of the best hockey-romance stories!

I'm not a "hot chick" but with a little help (e.g. make-up, hairspray etc) I can look attractive so I completely associate with the "plain" Jane heroine that has so much to offer: humour, intelligence and spice. This combined with the macho Luc and his ever-so-hot sexy tattoo (I'm sure I had an unattractive drool going on while I was reading about it) makes for an engaging story. This fiery couple have scenes that make you laugh out load, until Jane gets Luc hooked forever...
I'm a sucker for a bit of a Cinderella moment (aka the transformation) and it's refreshing to read about a heroine that isn't stunning, perfectly and naturally beautiful.
I love this book and it's an absolute keeper. It made me laugh, emotional and turned on - everything a good quality chic lit should have to offer. I've got the Kindle version and think I'm mad enough about it that I'll buy a hardcover. If this doesn't get you hooked on the Chinook series and Rachel Gibson in general I don't know what will!
