Review: Any Man of Mine
Any Man of Mine by Rachel Gibson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
From Goodreads: 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?
My Thoughts: This was the first of Gibson's books that I read and it was a good introduction. I enjoyed this book more than I thought I might, as I find that when I start a series in the middle I often feel like I'm missing too much back story to really enjoy the current one I'm reading. That really wasn't the case here.
Autumn and Sam had a long, tangled history between them, and Gibson did a good job of setting it up and providing details, without it taking over the first half of the book. We see both of them later growing into mature adults (perhaps Sam taking a bit longer overall!) who are able to discover each other again. A well done story of old lovers coming back together, this has made me want to track down others in Gibson's hockey series.
