Sunday Book Club – Nothing But Trouble, Rachel Gibson

Every Sunday we are taking a look at the world of books. I read a lot and always want to share my opinions on what I read, so I thought it would be fun to write reviews.

The month of Valentines can be a bit rubbish but I thought it would be good to use it as a chance to look at a different rom com related book each Sunday of February. Today we going to look at one of the romance books by the writer Rachel Gibson.

Nothing But Trouble (2010)

Rachel Gibson


Washed up from Hollywood and in serious need of some cash, Chelsea jumps at the $10,000 opportunity to act as ‘carer’ to famous hockey player Mark Bressler, currently injured after a car crash. After all, how hard can it be to play nice and pick up after an incredibly hot invalid in need of her tender loving care? Just three months of playing nurse and the cash is hers.

But Mark Bressler doesn’t need help. The moody hockey player’s glory days may be over, but he has no intention of letting anyone aid his recovery, least of all the maddeningly cheerful Chelsea. He’s determined to get her to quit – and Mark isn’t the type to give in. But then again, neither is Chelsea…

Positive Points

If there is one thing Rachel Gibson can do in her writing then that is build up the tension between the two people that the books are focussed around. It is a book that has some amusing sections and also some very romantic parts as well. It is part of a series but it can be read as a standalone book as it does not make much effect on the story.

Negative Points

I had hardly any knowledge of Ice Hockey when I read this initially and while it does not make a difference at sometimes you may be looking at the words a bit blankly.

Overall Review

If you are looking for your standard rom com then this is the book for you but it is also a really fun read. It has everything you want from a romantic read and it may persuade you to read the rest of the series.
