Nothing But Trouble - Chinooks Hockey Team, Bk 5 Author:Rachel Gibson TROUBLE ... — 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. — MORE TROUBLE ... — Injured superstar Mark... more » Bressler's glory days are over. The bad-boy ex-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 running from the world's biggest jerk 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 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!« less
This was a cute story. A nice addition to the other hockey themed books. For all the other RG followers, this story picks up immediatly after Ty and Fatih's book.
The hero is a crabby hot jock with wounded pride, physical injuries, and no real direction after a serious car accident. Enter Chelsea out of work actress, hired as his "assistant" because of his resistance to having a nurse, and the Chinooks organization insists he have help after his accident. I didn't notice him to be too big a potty mouth though, however the book is not free of all cursing.
I feel the opposite of the other review, I thought Chelsea was charming and her movie/fashion/body image refrences made her, well, her. She lives amongst hollywood starlets, and isn't one. Yet she loves fashion (and do not remember a scene where she wore a tight top) longs to be a movie star and is lugging around DD's.
What I found refreshing was it's not your typical "opposites attract" or "forbidden affair" or "enemies coming together" or "matchmaking by someone else" story. It is a fluffy story, not my favorite Gibson book, but etertaining and DEF. not the worst. I just wish there was "more" to the ending, seemed rushed to me.
Over all, worth the read in my opinion.
Currently 4.5/5 Stars.

Absolutely loved this book - a great addition to the Chinooks hockey series - great to see a little of Ty and Faith again. Funny read, with great characters, both lead and supporting. Light, fluffy read... just what I expected. Looking forward to Sam's story in 2011... Totally missed the "potty mouth" the other reviewer mentioned - so he swore like once or twice but sure did not offend me.
I could barely finish it. I'm not sure why it's received so many positive reviews, but to each their own!
The first half went quickly enough, although the almost immediate lust right off the bat had me a little wary. Chelsea was an interesting heroine and kept me hooked at the beginning; Mark is the tortured type of hero, which I always have a soft spot for. All I felt they had between them though was lust, and it was hard for me to sense anything else. Definitely doesn't compare to my Gibson favorites: SEE JANE SCORE, IT MUST BE LOVE, and TRULY MADLY YOURS.
