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—

This is the second book by Rachel Gibson that I’ve read and OMG! Can you say CHARMING x 1000? And hilarious, too!
I wasn’t even sure that I would like The Art of Running in Heels because of the over-the-top Bachelor type dating show and the heroine, Lexi joined one and she won! However, that runaway bride moment was hilarious!
Lexie Kowalsky’s runaway bride moment reminded me of her own mother’s runaway bride moment in Simply Irresistible. So, I thought that was funny.
Sean and Lexie’s romance was a not “in your face.” Sure, they had some sexy times going on but for the most part, it snuck up on you. And I really wanted more romance and maybe more interaction?
The best thing about this book is the fact that there were animals! Lexie loves animals and if you read Simply Irresistible you will know how much she loves them, and this is why she joined the show – to promote her dog clothing line.
I enjoyed The Art of Running in Heels but I honestly wanted more steam and interaction between Lexie and Sean. This book is definitely something I recommend for rom-com lovers.
