The Art of Running in Heels by @Rachel_Gibson #BookReview #Romance #reading




Running in five-inch stilettos is an art form

Leaving your fiancé at the altar on live television is a disaster. Lexie Kowalsky thought she was ready to get married in front of millions of people, but at the last minute she fled the set of television’s hottest reality show, Gettin’ Hitched. Wearing a poofy white dress and a pair of five-inch sparkly shoes, Lexie hopped a float plane for Sandspit, Canada. She figured no one would find her there. But she was wrong.

Sharing her flight was the Seattle Chinooks biggest star, Sean Knox. Lexie wasn’t just a reality-show runaway, she was his pain in the butt coach’s daughter. She was chaos and temptation and definitely off limits, but getting her luscious body out of that wedding gown, he couldn’t resist getting her in his bed for one amazing night.

Then a photo of Sean and Lexi breaks the internet—and suddenly they’re both swept up in a crazy plan to spin the whole story. But you can’t run from love—



Rachel Gibson




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, you can usually find Rachel hunting for the perfect shoes, or on the tennis court where she is a solid 2.5. Someday she hopes to hit the ball half as many times as she swings and misses.



Book Review



What happens when you win the man of the moment on national television, only to discover you don’t want him?

This is the premise for the newest in the Chinooks hockey series and I LOVED IT!

Lexie Kowalsky, daughter of Chinooks coach John Kowalsky from Simply Irresistible, joins the popular television dating program Gettin’ Hitched in the hopes of promoting her new doggie clothing store. The problem is that Lexie is her father’s daughter and she plays to win. On the day of their glitzy wedding, she jumps ship and ends up on a floatplane to Sandspit, Canada with a handsome stranger.

Sean Knox, the Seattle Chinooks’ new star player, is on his way home to care for his hypochondriac mother. He can’t believe his alcohol-blurred eyes when a vision in white pops out of a car and makes a dash down the dock to the same plane, and he really can’t believe his bad luck when she turns out to be the coach’s daughter.

Full of laugh-out-loud moments interspersed with real-life issues, Running in Heels is one of those books you’ll want to reread over and over again.

Chaos and temptation, two things Sean doesn’t need in his life right now, but he’s helpless to resist one blond bombshell in trouble.

I give Running in Heels 5+ lovely kisses- A fun romance that is both heart-wrenching and entertaining!

    1. Rachel does a fantastic job with bringing characters that you at first think are shallow, into the reader’s hearts by their underlying conflicts. She’s really worth the read.
