In one of her more embarrassing moves, she runs away in her designer dress and killer heels, catching a flight from a friend to the middle-of-nowhere Canada. Somehow sparks fly with the gorgeous passenger she enlists to help her hide from the media for a couple of days. Lexie may be sexy as hell, but all her drama is something he definitely does not need in his life. Not with his always ailing mother back home in Sandspit, Canada constantly bugging him and his newly traded status to the Seattle Chinooks hanging over him. And he really meant to tell her before they had a steamy night together. And after.
But the time was never right. Now Sean is faced with an angry Lexie and somehow agrees to become her fake boyfriend to keep the media off her case after the fallout from her ruined wedding.
And even though I found Lexie to be a tad on the act-first-and-think-later side of things and Sean could come across as an arrogant alpha, I still had a good time with their over the top antics and their fake relationship. I think this was the type of fluffy feel good story where you just have to let go and let things happen.
Just have fun and be completely entertained by the characters and even the unique furbabies we meet.
And with the stress of the holidays upon us now, this was just the type of story I needed to crack a smile and sigh happily for a bit. Okay, so Lexie was kinda crazy—but in a good way. She was smart but a little flighty. She adored animals and raised money to help rescue organizations but she was used to the finer things in her own personal life.
And neither did Sean, for that matter. Boy was his mother a piece of work! But it was comical watching him try to figure Lexie out. Read more Read less. Frequently bought together. Total price: Add both to Cart Add both to List.

I don't know how else to describe it. I literally squealed when I saw this book announced. I bought it and read it the same day. And I was left with a disappointment so intense I started to question myself.
Was the book really this bad? Would Rachel really churn out this rushed and inconsistent slap in the face to her character's that I loved so much?
That disappointment grew into anger and has led to me writing my very first book review. Spoilers ahead. My first issue with this book was that it seems like she doesn't even remember any of the details from her previous book. Granted it has been over 20 years since that book have been released, but there are some basic things that were just plain wrong in this book that made it feel rushed, and flat-out lazy. How she became Alexis is beyond me. Second, you mean to tell me that I'm a man like John Kowalski would think that his daughter had been sexually assaulted and would just sit on the couch and fume about it?
What the hell kind of character assassination is that?
Don't even get me started on the constant mentioning of how large her breasts are. We got it the first 80 times you said it, we don't need the reminder. This book was bad, just plain awful. I almost feel like my feelings are hurt. Lexie grew up to be an awful person.
Her love interest is nothing more than a muscled to shell of a human being. If I bought this book in print I probably would have burned it for closure. It's several months later and I'm still pissed. I typically LOVE her books. Her books usually keep me hooked from the first page to the last. Not this one. The characters are a little flat, especially Sean, the Hockey Hero. He sort of stumbles into hero mode at the last minute.
This should have been an easy one to tie the psychology of the old story to the new love story.
It could have been hysterically funny. I know Rachel can write hysterically funny stories. It is not. Even the sex scenes were boring!! No heat, no pizazz, no warm love between the characters. This one was not the best of those. While there were moments I laughed out loud and enjoyed Gibson's writing, I felt like the pacing throughout the novel was not consistent.
Several moments felt very rushed, particularly the end more on this in a minute. The characters were also not as well fleshed out as Gibson's typically are.
The romantic hero of this novel, Sean Knox, didn't have much depth, and Lexie was more like a caricature. Finally, I really take issue with the ending of this novel: While this is a pretty typical ending for most books of this genre, this one felt very rushed and pretty unbelievable based on the earlier characterization of the hero.
I also cringed over the corniness of the last couple paragraphs. I was so disappointed in this long awaited book by Rachel Gibson that I almost didn't finish it. Don't waste your time or money. It insults your intelligence from beginning to end. I certainly will not read another book by her.
Every since Lexie stole my heart in "Simply Irresistible", I have wondered how she grew up. I loved the story of Georgeanne and John and reread the book before "Running in Heels" came out.
Rachel makes it so much fun to read about how these tough, strong hockey players fall for these "out there" women and don't realize they're down for the count until they get a hockey stick to the head! The first part of this book kept me laughing and rooting for Lexie. The only thing I didn't like was no epilog. I needed to know a little more about if Lexie kept her business, and what their lives were going forward. Maybe a book about Marie, she seems like a character who could outwit another player, and we'd find out how Lexie and Sean are doing along with that little hairless dog who creeps under everyone's skin.
