Any Man of Mine

What happens in Vegas . . . doesn't always stay there.

Autumn Haven's Las Vegas "to-do" list said to catch a show and play the slots—not wake up married to a sexy jerk like Sam LeClaire. The first moment she saw him eyeing her like a luscious piece of the dessert buffet, her usually responsible self told her to run. And she did—right into the wildest fantasy weekend of her life. But Monday morning jolted her back to reality, and before she could say "pass the coffee," Sam was gone.

Now a successful wedding planner, Autumn hasn't clapped eyes on the heartbreaking hockey superstar for over two years . . . until she organizes his teammate's "Special Day," where Sam makes a big play to pick up where he left off! But she has vowed any man of hers plays for keeps. Is Sam the man for her or does she banish him to the sin bin forever?

I've been reading Rachel Gibson for years and she's always been a must read author for me; She used to be a must buy, but that's another story. I adore her hockey books, there's something about hockey players that make my heart do a little flip. Mind you there are some books that are better than others. And let's just say that this hockey just didn't do it for me.

I found Sam to be emotionally crippled and a jackass with a capital J. Although he did grow on me throughout the book. He made the effort to get to know his child and be a more active parent. But I just didn't buy the emotional connection to Amber, the physical one was awesome, but I didn't get anything other than that for their story.
