Melissa's Review:

The Art of Running in Heels is book 7 in the Chinooks Hockey Team series. This is my first book by Rachel Gibson and I found it humorous and such a good romance. I'll be trying out more of her books in the near future. For some reason I don't read many sports related romances, but the hockey ones I just seem to love.

We start off meeting Lexie Kowalsky, she's running off on her wedding day because she doesn't love the guy from the reality TV show she was on. I've been seeing quite a few of these Bachelor type books but I was glad we didn't have to go through the actual show type scenes, just the aftermath. Anyway, Lexie runs off from the wedding and the media is going nuts trying to find out where the missing bride is. She decides to lie low by hopping on a charter airplane her friend is flying someone else on. Enter Sean Knox, he's going to Sandspit, Canada to check in on his hypochondriac mother. Sean instantly knows who Lexie is, not only from the TV show, but also because her father is his hockey coach. He never lets on about the connection between the two and while the sparks are flying I knew it was going to lead to an issue when everything is revealed. After a night together they head back home and the media is hounding Lexie, who's just trying to put her life back together and also launch her dog outfit/everything you need for a dog type boutique. The media is casting her in a very negative light and pictures surface of them together so they decide to play the part of a loving couple. Neither really expected for romance to actually blossom.

The Art of Running in Heels is highly entertaining and a must read. I loved seeing what would happen next, and while hockey was on the backburner we did get some time on the ice in the second half. I enjoyed the family aspects, and the let's pretend to be dating is one of my favorite themes. All in all, I really enjoyed this book and would suggest it if you're looking for an engaging contemporary romance.
