Running in five-inch stilettos is an art form
Leaving your fiancé at the altar on live television is a disaster. Lexie Kowalsky thought she was ready to get married in front of millions of people, but at the last minute she fled the set of television’s hottest reality show, Gettin’ Hitched. Wearing a poofy white dress and a pair of five-inch sparkly shoes, Lexie hopped a float plane for Sandspit, Canada. She figured no one would find her there. But she was wrong.
Sharing her flight was the Seattle Chinooks biggest star, Sean Knox. Lexie wasn’t just a reality-show runaway, she was his pain in the butt coach’s daughter. She was chaos and temptation and definitely off limits, but getting her luscious body out of that wedding gown, he couldn’t resist getting her in his bed for one amazing night.
Then a photo of Sean and Lexi breaks the internet—and suddenly they’re both swept up in a crazy plan to spin the whole story. But you can’t run from love—
I first discover Rachel Gibson from reading her Writer Friends series and because I enjoyed it so much, I decided to pick up her Chinooks Hockey Team novels as well. And I wholeheartedly fell in love with those hockey players and their lovely women. Even today, the Chinooks Hockey Team series is my number one favorite sports series. When I figured that Any Man of Mine was the last in the series, you can imagine how sad I was that it was ending. I’ve wished for years that Ms. Gibson would write another one and I would even check some websites every once in a while to see if there was a new book without any luck. And then I saw the cover for The Art of Running in Heels with "Chinooks" on the cover on my social media feed and I couldn’t contain my excitement! I was unbelievably happy and I couldn’t wait to read it, I didn’t even bother reading the synopsis, but when my friend told me it was about John “The Wall” Kowalsky’s daughter, that only ramped up my eagerness to read The Art of Running in Heels. And now that I’ve read it, I can say that it was even better than I expected and I wholeheartedly loved it too!
It’s hard for me to go straight into talking about Lexie and Sean like I would usually do, so I’m going to be impulsive and forget my norms which is perfectly appropriate when it comes to The Art of Running in Heels, but I won’t say more than that because I don’t want to spoil anything.
The Art of Running in Heels had me laughing from the very beginning and all throughout the book. It was downright hilarious with so many laugh-out-loud moments. It was extremely entertaining, fun, and playful, although it did have its heartache-y and make-your-eyes-start-to-tear-up times. It was wonderful to see the original characters and to meet all the new ones. I loved Lexie and Sean, they were crazy and awesome and there’s not a thing I would change about them.
I can’t tell you how great it was to visit the Chinooks Hockey Team world again. It was an amazing, heartwarming read and I loved and enjoyed it immensely. I’m hoping that we’ll get even more Chinooks books now and I can’t wait to read them if we do!
The Art of Running in Heels is a standalone and if you haven’t yet, I highly recommend reading the rest of the series whenever you can. It’s told mostly from Lexie and Sean’s POV and they have a heart melting happily-ever-after that made me smile and put a huge grin on my face!
