From our hostess, Jackie!
RACHEL GIBSON scores a goal with SEE JANE RUN, and in my opinion, here's why:
This book is packed-full with smart, funny and provacative scenes, along with witty and saucy dialogue. The sparks fly - opposites attract - spit-and-fire sparring leads to spicy and steamy romance. An average plain "Jane" reporter gets her "Lucky" playboy hockey player! I just love when the plain, flat-chested short girl wins the game!!
Some of my favorite passages from the book are:
"You big dumb dodo!"
"What the heck is a body check?"
"What's this -- the I-don't-ever-want-to-get-laid-again-look?"
"I'll just take a moment of your time, and I'd prefer you not do your synchronized jock-dropping thing."
"You're a cute archangel of doom."
"You make me want to suck a bruise on you just to kiss it better."
"Look at all that testosterone on ice."
"Kind of like Campbell's Soup Stars on Ice?"
"No, kind of like a sperm bank."
"My body is a temple," he said around a bite of cauliflower.
"And anyone with long legs and big boos is welcome to worship," Jane added.
"This isn't hockey. There's no trash-talking in darts."
AND THEN there's the infamous "Lucky" tattoo (which, alone, makes this book a worthy -read!).
""He had a black horseshoe tattooed on his lower belly. The shadowing of the groove and nail holes gave depth and dimension to his flesh, and the heels curved upward on each side of his belly button. The bottom of the tattoo disappeared beneath the waistband of his underwear, . . . the toe of the horseshoe disappeared beneath his public hair and went clear to the base of his penis. A ribbon was tattooed just above . . . and tied from one side of the horseshoe to the other. LUCKY was written across it in bold black ink."
As Jane said, "I want to lick your tattoo."
SEE JANE SCORE is full of fun and highly recommended.
