Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Seattle Chinooks have won the Stanley Cup, but it’s a bitter win for superstar player Mark Bressler. Injured in a car crash months earlier, he woke up immobilized in the hospital and unable to play hockey ever again. Cranky and gloomy, he is not a very good patient, pushing away every assistant the team sends him within hours of arrival. When they send him Chelsea Ross, he is not as successful. Chelsea, a former B-movie actress, is working as a personal assistant between roles in horror films and commercials. Though she is irritated with Mark, she is determined to stick it out, if only for the massive bonus the team will give her if she makes it through three months. Neither the scream queen nor the hockey player expects to get along, let alone be attracted to each other. The newest in Gibson’s series about the Seattle Chinooks is a classic opposites-attract romance with action hot enough to melt ice. --Hilary Hatton


“With humor an deloquent prose, Gibson brings substance and depth to this loving, modern romance.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review) on True Love and Other Disasters)

“Gibson’s straightforward story of “the one,” and the one that got away, is wrapped in sexual tension so hot your palms will sweat.” (Booklist on Not Another Bad Date)

Lively, hot, and full of sassy wit, Idaho-based Gibson’s latest hilarious hockey turn combines nonstop fun with a touching dash of authenticity. (Library Journal)

This funny, sexy and light-hearted book was a joy to read and it's definitely one of my favourites by Rachel Gibson.

Unsuccessful actress Chelsea Ross desperately needs money, so she agrees to work as a personal assistent for hockey superstar Mark Bressler. He was seriously hurt in a car accident months ago and had to give up playing hockey. Ever since he is in a black mood and does his best to act like a jerk. Mark doesn't want anyone to help him and especially not funky and witty Chelsea. But he can't get rid of her like he did with his other assistents because Chelsea just won't leave.
Soon Chelsea and Mark find some common ground and he even begins to like their discussions and her attempts to cheer him up. When the attraction between them grows, their relationship changes and they become lovers. What starts as something casual soon feels like so much more and Mark and Chelsea have to decide how they want to go on.

I loved reading "Nothing but trouble" and think that it's one of the best books by Rachel Gibson so far.
Chelsea is a great heroine and I liked her from the first moment. She is a funny, honest and caring person and pursues her dreams even though her family disagrees. I especially enjoyed reading about her bright personality and clothing style.
Mark is an awesome hero. At first I was a bit sceptical about him but that changed within a few pages. He may be brooding and arrogant but he is also funny and kind. You can feel his pain and just hope that his life will get better.
Mark and Chelsea are a great, sexy and lovely pair and I especially enjoyed that Mark understood one of her biggest wishes and was willing to change his life for her.

Alot of the so called "professional reviewers" really panned this book but I really liked it. Alot of the complaints stemmed from the fact that the female lead Chelsea strayed from her long term goal of returning to Hollywood and resuming her acting career to give it all up for the dude. In fact I think Ms. Gibson did a good job of drawing parallels between the real world the Chelsea inhabited (broke, crashing at her sister's apartment, taking an assistant job to a head case, injured hockey star) and the world that a younger (ok maybe sillier) Chelsea inhabited as a D flick scream queen. But seriously, haven't most of us had those same experiences where we had those halcyon jobs that we felt we'd "make our mark in" and now find ourselves settled down as Accountants, Electricians, Moms and we long for the day when we were paid to dance at club openings...(Ahem, I won't continue down my memory lane path).

Mark Bressler is the Captain of the Chinooks Hockey team and as a result of a car accident was severely injured and unable to complete his trek to Lord Stanley's Trophy. As a result of his horrific injuries his team was forced to move on without him and do the unthinkable. Win it all - without their Captain. Mark is bitter, mean, healing slowing and shut off until the breeze that is Chelsea Ross saunters in to his life in a mish-mash of colors, prints and a rack that won't quit. At first Mark insists (to himself that he can run her off like he has the rest of the therapists his hockey team has sent over) but Chelsea takes a different tack due to her desperate circumstances. She comes through as his assistant and meets him head to head. The first two chapters and the "Pucci" to "Pus-y" translation are hilarious and just like that Ms. Gibson has me hooked.

Now for me, Ms.

I marked the publication date on my calendar and, happily, it coincided with dental surgery. Reading this delightful book helped the pain go away and I recommend it to any Gibson fans out there.

Rachel has come up with another unlikely heroine, and she's dealing with a crabby former hockey player. Both leads are fully drawn people, with quirks, humor and intelligence. The plot is good, and enhanced by the themes of the "different" twins and the hero's concerns about life without hockey. As a reader of all RG's other hockey-player books, I enjoyed the scene [a Stanley Cup dinner, naturally] where husbands and wives from other books show up to interact with the hero (Mark Bressler) and even do some trash talking. [For those who are curious to learn more about Rob Sutter, try THE TROUBLE WITH VALENTINE'S DAY] The steamy scenes are, well, steamy and a pure delight.

Highly recommended for a delicious afternoon's reading.

When he woke up in the hospital after a car accident that almost cost him his life, Mark Bressler knew his hockey career was over. Months later, the slow and incredibly painful rehabilitation process is no more crippling that the dark morass of self pity into which he's slid. Morose and beaten, he's lost everything that ever meant anything to him, and when his team wins the coveted Stanley Cup without him, it almost kills him. All he wants to do is sit in his huge house and be left alone with his Vicodan. The last thing he wants is another team-hired home health worker shoved in his face, doing everything but wiping his butt.

Chelsea Ross isn't in health care. In fact, she's an actress...sort of. Her short, busty appearance has landed her a few rolls as screaming victims in B-grade horror movies, and she's had a few other walk-on rolls in soaps and commercials. After hockey player Mark Bressler had fired, scared off, or offended all six of the health care professionals the team sent to him to help him recover at his home, Chelsea's twin sister Bo got her a shot at going in another direction. For a meager salary but a much-needed ten thousand dollar bonus if she can put up with the surly, rude bastard for three months, Chelsea is determined to use a combination of her acting skills and experience as an assistant to LA's near-elite to put up with him. Even if he is a total Tool.

Broken and wounded, Mark's bitter self pity lashes out at Chelsea again and again. Chelsea grits her teeth and takes it. Neither like each other very much. Or...you know...at all. But the sparks can't help but fly when the unstoppable Chelsea clashes with the immovable Mark, and the longer the friction, the hotter the fire.
