Tuesday Teaser/Opening ~ See Jane Score

This week's teaser comes from See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson.

This is Jane

A little subdued. A little stubborn. A little tired of going out on blind dates with men who drive vans with sofas in the back, Jane Alcott is living the Single Girl existence in the big city. She is also leading a double life. By day, she's a reporter covering the raucous Seattle Chinooks hockey team--especially thier notorious goalie Luc Martineau. By night, she's a writer, secretly creating the scandalous adventures of "Honey Pie" . . . the magazine series that has all the men talking.

See Jane Spar

Luc has made his feelings about parasite reporters--and Jane--perfectly clear. But if he thinks he's going to make her life miserable, he'd better think again.

See Jane Attract

For as long as he can remember, Luc has been single-minded about his career. The last thing he needs is a smart-mouthed, pain-in-the-backside reporter digging into his past and getting in his way. But once the little reporter sheds her black and gray clothes in favor of a sexy red dress, Luc sees that there is more to Jane than originally meets the eye. Maybe it's time to take a risk. Maybe it's time to live out fantasies. Maybe it time to . . . See Jane Score.

The First Paragraph (Chapter 1):
The locker room was thick with trash talk as Luc "Lucky" Martineau tucked himself into his cup and strapped on his gear. Most of his teammates stood around Daniel Holstrom, the rookie Swede, giving Daniel his choice of initiations. He could either let the guys shave his hair into a Mohawk or take the whole team out to dinner. Since rookie dinners cost between ten and twelve thousand dollars, Luc figured the winger was going to end up looking like a punker for a while.

The Teaser:
I've always been a sucker for dark men with bad attitudes. One look and I knew this man was as dark and as bad as a thunderstorm.

Share the first paragraph (or a few) from a book you are reading. Here's the link: Bibliophile By The Sea


  1. I like the comparison of the man to a thunderstorm. Clever! This sounds like a fun escape that I'd enjoy.
    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog post: THE LITTLEST COWBOY.

  2. Sounds like a fun read. I am always reluctant to read a romance featuring an athlete--probably because I'm not a big sports fan--but I do enjoy the journalist angle. And I like the intro and teaser. I'd go for the Mohawk too. :-)

    1. I'm not a sports fan either, but I like the alpha males one tends to find in sports.

  3. Oooh, this sounds like a lot of fun! I've never read anything by Gibson, but perhaps I should give her a try. There's definitely something delightful about a character who knows they're looking at something (someone) "bad" and going after it (them) anyways. Hope you're enjoying it!

    My teasers this week are from Boxers & Saints.

    1. Gibson is one of my favorite rom com authors. Well worth trying if you like the genre.

  4. Sounds like a fun read :) I've been wanting to read this author for ages.
