Chelsea Ross's acting career has been a total bust. The closest she ever came to stardom was her brilliant performance as 'Pretty Dead Girl #1.' But leaving Hollywood to become the personal assistant to a famous hockey player could be her stupidest career move ever.
Injured superstar Mark Bressler's glory days are over. The one time bad boy jock could at least be civil to the pint-sized, pink-haired bombshell who the Seattle Chinooks hired to be his P.A. If Chelsea didn't need the money, she'd be skating away from the world's biggest jerk-on-ice as fast as her feet could carry her.
Chelsea can deal with Mark's rotten attitude and dark moods. The problem is those biceps and that red-hot hockey-toned bod! And when the bad boy starts to put the moves on her, Chelsea knows it's time she banished him to the penalty box...if only she could resist the kind of trouble he has in mind!
Angry at the world when a near-fatal car crash takes him off the ice permanently, hockey superstar Mark Bressler is bent on making life miserable for everyone—especially his latest team-provided personal assistant: outspoken, flamboyant, and unemployed actress Chelsea Ross. Chelsea is out to revamp her acting career and badly needs the $10,000 bonus she'll get if she lasts three months with Mark; failure is simply not an option. But neither is the unwanted, totally surprising attraction that springs up between them. Colorful characters from Gibson's earlier Seattle Chinooks titles round out the cast and add context to this effervescent delight. VERDICT Lively, hot, and full of sassy wit, Idaho-based Gibson's (True Love and Other Disasters) latest hilarious hockey turn combines nonstop fun with a touching dash of authenticity.
Rachel Gibson. I could go all hyperbole on you, but the bottom line is if you like smart, sexy contemporary romances with great characters, then this is the writer for you. Just trust me on this. And when she delves into hockey? Hold on to your ice skates - you're in for a ride.
Chelsea may not have been a great actress, but she's certainly a passable PA, and definitely doesn't deserve the crap being heaped on her by Mr Once-a-Great-Hockey-Player-Now-on-the-Sidelines. She also doesn't deserve the borderline sexual harassment...and she'd stop it, if only she could actually bring herself to mind about that part.
