Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fine addition to the Truly, Idaho series, Gibson’s latest features lots of humor, steamy encounters and cute kids, as well as grown-ups dealing with tough, real-life issues. An excellent, fun read that stands alone.” (RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 Stars))

“An entertaining read, full of witty repartee, sexual tension and a romantic tango between two attracted but conflicted main characters.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This story is romantic and deeply emotional - the descriptions of Blake’s battle with alcohol are particularly moving - all while displaying Gibson’s trademark sexy humor.” (Sarah MacLean, Washington Post)

“If you are looking for a smart, funny, sexy contemporary, then you don’t want to miss What I Love about You.” (Heroes & Heartbreakers)

About the Author

Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats, and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age sixteen, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car's broken glass all about. She told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit-and-run and they believed her. She's been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.

Ms. Gibson is revisiting the same themes, storyline and sometime sentences from her previous books. It would be nice to read something original from her instead of having scenes be virtually rewritten from years gone by. When you read a sentence with dialogue and can remember the exact scene from another of the author's book where it played out before, you're either too familiar with the author or they've hit the creativity wall. I've read everything except the last book Ms. Gibson has written and this book was another in a line of unfortunate disappointments of the past couple of years.

***Spoilers*** Rachel Gibson had me with the first couple of pages. Blake's struggle with the bottle of Johnnie Walker captured my interest. Then the cute little neighbor girl, Charlotte, came to visit (she was the best part of the book, by the way). I really could not reconcile the man who is supposed to be the hero of the book with the man who spoke so crudely to a 5 year old child. Sorry, but I didn't like Blake nor did I like his on again, off again treatment of Natalie. She also had her problems. Spending 5 years without a relationship so she could protect her child from heartbreak, she completely reversed her standards with Blake. They had unprotected sex in the living room with her daughter (hopefully) asleep in the adjoining bedroom. So much for discretion! As the book progressed, there were hints that Natalie might be pregnant but that was left hanging at the end of the book. There was an exhusband who showed up but his relationship with Natalie and Charlotte was left hanging. We did not find out if he was reformed or still a jerk. Blake had a twin brother who showed up but that relationship was left hanging, also. Suddenly with not much explanation, Blake finally decided he was in love with Natalie and she fell into his arms with no qualms about his being an alcoholic and suffering from PTSD and anger issues.

There were editing problems everywhere. Blake went to the grocery store and put a bag of oranges in his cart. Two pages later, he put a bag of oranges in his cart. Reference was made repeatedly about Blake's "cold gray eyes". The language used is very rough. And last but not least, my own personal dislike: Several books earlier, Ms. Gibson started referring to her heroes' private parts as their "package".

Rachel Gibson used to write clever, funny books with well developed characters whose antics made you laugh out loud. Unfortunately, she, too, has followed the trend of filling pages and pages of a novel with graphic sexual descriptions. I love her earlier books. This one has poorly developed, improbable characters, doing really impossible things. What a disappointment. No more Rachel Gibson books for me. Her creative well is dry.

2.5 Stars!

I'm going to keep this review brief because the other 2 and 3 star reviewers encompass most of my feelings about this book. As a dedicated Rachel Gibson fan (who pre-ordered this book, mind you) I would say this book is OK. Certainly not Ms. Gibson's best work and as the other reviewers mentioned, she copied scenes/sentences/vibes from her other books and if you've read her stuff well then you'll notice that.

Things that I liked:

1) Is it me or in every book where there is a single parent the other parent is a) dead or b) deadbeat/vanished. It's really easy for authors to make a love story happen without the other parent getting in the way. Well Rachel Gibson did NOT take the easy way out here. I LOVED that Charlotte's father was involved in the book and had some sort of presence in Charlotte's life (albeit after he got out of jail but still). That made the story more believable (although other parts of the premise were super unrealistic). In real life, most of the time the other parent is involved in some way (either them or their family) - how many women are *lucky* enough to not have to deal with a crappy baby daddy/ex. So it's good that he's in the story and that we hear about them finding a way to co-parent while she finds love because that's the way it goes in real life.

2) I liked that there wasn't some big angst in the story because alot of time it is really cringe worthy. Although the heroine fell in love with the hero way too fast and it didn't ring true in the slightest (well maybe it does because she's a naive small-town woman).

I'm hoping Rachel Gibson finds her creative juices and gives us original stories we can enjoy again! I will not return this book - although I contemplated it...

I have been a fan of Rachel Gibson for a long time, loved a lot of her books. I read the reviews and while I have seen in some of her other books that she used lines from previous books I didn't get that in this book like some of the other reviewers have wrote. Also I don't remember reading this story line from her before, could be just me?! Another point off for some of the other reviewers that I didn't agree with is how mean Blake was to Charlotte, he was fighting an addiction while I don't use that as an excuse for the way he talked to a child I think Rachel Gibson showed his struggles very well. Although we wish someone going through that would be all smiles and sunshine that's just not the way a fight like that goes, so good job to the author. The last few books I have read by Gibson I wasn't a fan of I would agree with all the other reviews on those but not this one. I laughed at a few of the lines and I liked all the characters and thought Blake was a great hero, good job to Gibson hope she stays on this path!
