Rachel Gibson has crafted yet another heartwarming tale in the beautiful Northwest,
a deeply moving story about the bonds of family. Any Man of Mine
has spurred me to start reading Gibsonís other books.
Autumn Haven has just lost her mother to cancer when she takes a much-needed vacation
to Las Vegas. Going out on the town one night by herself, she meets hockey player Sam LeClaire, and things heat up between them pretty quick. At the end of a week-long romance, on one drunken night, Autumn wants to cross one more thing off her to-do list:
see an Elvis impersonator. Sam and Claire decide to go to a wedding chapel, of all places, and on the spur of the moment Sam asks Claire to marry him under a drunken haze.
Years later, after divorce and the terrible twos, Autumn is managing to be a single mother to Conner and still trying to forget about that one golden
god of a player named Sam LeClaire.
Sam LeClaire regrets leaving his newly married wife in bed and skipping town, but he was downright scared at what he had done and
unwilling to face the consequences. After seeing Autumn work his friendís
nuptials as a wedding planner years later, Sam just might be willing to face what he
did after all. Can Autumn forgive him for leaving her all those years ago, and not being there for their son? Can she learn to love him again?
Any Man of Mine is one of those books I would read again in a heartbeat. Turning page after page and seeing how a big tough guy handles a
little five-year-old with gentleness warmed my heart.
