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—

My Thoughts

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.

About Rachel Gibson

Rachel’s storytelling career began at the age of sixteen when she ran her Chevy Vega into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper and broken glass from the ground, and drove to her High School parking lot. With the help of her friend, she strategically scattered the broken pieces and told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit and run. They believed her, and she’s been telling stories ever since.

Four of her novels were named among the Top Ten Favorite Books of The Year by Romance Writers of America. Two of her novels, True Confessions and Not Another Bad Date, were awarded the RITA, Romance Writers of America’s highest honor of excellence.
