Publisher's Summary

Undercover cop Joe Shanahan's bad luck hit bottom the morning he stared up into the face of sexy suspect Gabrielle Breedlove. She'd blown his cover - brought him down with a can of hairspray - and now his new assignment was to pose as her boyfriend. But spending as much time as possible with the utterly irresistible new-age beauty caused unexpected complications. To make matters worse, his matchmaking sisters are picking out china patterns.

Joe's brooding good looks and T-shirt-straining muscles might be easy on the eyes, but how could Gabrielle be attracted to a straight-laced detective who's determined to find evidence to arrest her? Still, he invades her dreams and when they share a transcendent lovemaking experience, Gabrielle knows it must be love.

Cute Story

This is a cute story. It's not as humorous as I imagined it would be and the material is dated. It's not a book I would want to use a credit on but rather get on sale.

I was expecting more...

Rachel Gibson is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are funny and usually full of an intense romance. This one did not live up to what I expect from her stories. Yes it was funny but the chemistry between the Joe and Gabrielle was not all that. It didn't help that the narrator didn't really add emotion or made the story come alive like others can. It's a fun cute story but not heart melting like her hockey series.

You Will Love This Book!

"It Must Be Love", by Rachel Gibson is the first book in a while that I absolutely LOVED! It was a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience, as Rebecca Tripp did a great job narrating. The voices were easily distinguishable; the characters were developed well; and it was written with the talent of an author who knows how to engage her reader, encouraging a relationship with her characters.
Definitely Credit Worthy!! Get ready to have some fun!

Fun, Off Beat, and only a bit of drag

I have really enjoyed Rachel Gibson's books recently- and i seem to have her next one pre-ordered before I finish the last. So i'm so excited that Audible keeps dishing them out- because i can't enough! My favorites so far are the hockey series- and the dating mishaps- so when i came across It Must Be Love, I was thoroughly excited! It only let me down....slightly. Rebecca Tripp's narration leaves a bit to be desired- although definitely not a bad narrator! I just couldn't get into the voo-doo stuff of the main character. ALOT of different scenes made me laugh out loud though (jumping off the balcony!). So as i look back- It was definitely credit worthy- although a far shot from my favorite. I felt like the end just kept dragging on, and I was ready for some resolution!!

Cute Story

What a kick! Really enjoyed this book as it's a laugh out loud story. I got a kick out of the parrot, and kooky characters. Rachel Gibson has become one of my favorite author's. I will continue to look forward to seeing more of her books on audio.

Not great

Gabrielle, female lead, has alternative spiritual beliefs however she’s portrayed in a ditzy fashion. I found her character tiresome. The male lead comes off in a traditional but sexist manner. I lasted only one of the way through. Narrator very enjoyable.

One of the Best!

I‘m so excited I found this book! I read this book on pdf years ago and COMPLETELY FORGOT THE Name! -We‘ve all been there- and have finally found this book again!

It‘s one of those stories that has a modern noir feel, unique characters, and a story that is satisfying to the end. This book isn‘t rewriting the romance genre- but it does set itself apart as memorable and a book you can listen to/ read to time and time again.

This is a staple in my library- highly recommend.

Looked forward to a new story from R. Gibson

I enjoyed this book. The characters were likeable, or unlikeably as the case maybe. The narrator, at first I thought she was incredible but other times it seemed she was reading it for the first time. I really expect a better story from Ms. Gibson.
