Review: What I Love About You by Rachel Gibson

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns to Truly, Idaho, and to the fate of sexy SEAL Blake Junger


Ex-high school cheerleader Natalie Cooper could once shake her pom-poms with the best of them. But she's paid for all that popularity—her husband's run off with what's left of their money and a twenty-year-old bimbo named Tiffany. Leaving Natalie to manage a photo store and having to see some pictures she, well, really shouldn't.


Then she comes toe-to-manly chest with Blake Junger. Exiled to a remote cabin in Truly, Idaho, Blake wants nothing to do with anyone. Instead, he's determined to struggle with his demons and win—all on his own. But the last thing he needs is Natalie distracting him with her luscious curves and breaking down the barriers of his heart.

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is August 26, 2014.

This is a good read to pass the time.  This story is aimed towards those that like a little steam in their romance as there is plenty to offer in this one.

It follows the typical formula of girl meets boy, they hate each other but their chemistry is off the charts.  Followed by a truce, a friendship and them some really hot scenes that make you wonder what had kept them apart for so long.  Add in a humorous best friend, a cute little girl and a puppy and there you go.  It satisfies all the cravings you have for a pleasant read.

Not without fault, I found that the romance progressed a little quickly and Natalie too quick to realize how she felt about Blake.  I had to remind myself that this was fiction and things do not always follow realistic timeline.  That said it did not ruin the story.

For your fill of steamy and sexy, this book will certainly satisfy

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. Afther the High School, she married with Mr. Gibson. At 25, she already had three children. One day, her TV broke, and she read her first romance, The Spanish Rose by Shirlee Busbee, she loved it, and six years later she published her first novel.
