I'm In No Mood for Love by Rachel Gibson

I'm In No Mood for Love by Rachel Gibson is the loosely connected story to Sex, Lies, and Online Dating. It was a quick and easy read, and I enjoyed it. 3 out of 5 stars.

What is Clare Wingate doing? One minute she's suffering in a pretty-in-pink gown she'll never wear again, and the next thing she knows it's morning... and she has the nastiest hangover of her life.

To make matters worse, she wearing nothing but a spritz of Escada and lying next to Sebastian Vaughan... her girlhood crush turned sexy, globehopping journalist. Somewhere between the toast and the toss of the bouquet she'd gotten herself into a whole lot of trouble.

Clare had the right to go wild- after all, she'd been knocked off her dyed-to-match shoes after finding her own fiance in na compromising position with the washing machine repairman. Clearly her society wedding is off.

But Sebastian pushed all the wrong buttons- and some of the right ones too. Clare is in no mood for love-not even lust- and wants to forget about Sebastian and his six-pack abs ASAP. But he isn't in the mood to go away, and his kiss is impossible to forget.

This was a fun read. I enjoyed watching Clare and Sebastian's relationship evolve from not liking each other to friends, and eventually more than just friends. Sebastian and Clare are good matches for each other, and were a pleasure to read. While this book follows Sex, Lies, and Online Dating, it is not necessary to read that book first. That book discusses Clare's friend Lucy and how she met her match. They are just briefly mentioned in this book.

The only reason I gave it 3 out of 5 stars and not more is just because it was not a total page turner and was a cozy read. Not spectacular, but fun to read. I really liked that all four of the friends are different authors. It was fun to see about the inside of a writer that Gibson provides. I will be looking for the following book, Maddie's story which comes out in the summer of 2007.

I've read all her books and she's somewhat hit or miss with me. But when she is a hit, she's very very good! I just got this one the other day (that Twilight music again). My favourite by her is See Jane Score. Have you read that one yet? I know you're a hockey fan so if you haven't you'll love it!

No I haven't read that one. I will add this one on my list for the next time I hit the library or UBS to look for. This is the only 2nd one I have read by her... so I am open to any suggestions!

I do love hockey, especially my Red Wings!!!!! They won a nailbaiter tonight!
