Book 1, The Chicago Rebels Series
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Hot in Chicago series author Kate Meader returns with her all new, scorching Chicago Rebels hockey series, featuring her signature “steamy sex scenes, colorful characters, and riveting dialogue” (Romantic Times). Three estranged sisters inherit their late father’s failing hockey franchise and are forced to confront a man’s world, their family’s demons, and the battle-hardened ice warriors skating into their hearts.
Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.
Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?
He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…
4.5 great start to a new series stars
4.5 great start to a new series stars. I enjoyed this book and this couple more than I thought even thought I would. I have read this author before and I enjoyed her Hot in Chicago firefighter series very much but I wasn't sure about the premise of this one (the female owner / player). But the star of the first few books of this series is definitely going to be the 3 sisters and their relationships and personalities, which shouldn't surprise given the great family and relationships I've seen this author write before. Don't get me wrong, the hockey is good and the team and the guys are great. And I enjoyed Remy a ton - very funny and sweet (eventually) and I liked the way he really persued Harper. But I cannot wait for more of the sisters. Well done and I highly recommend this book and I will definitely be purchasing the future books in this series.
In Irresistible You, Kate Meader takes on the world of hockey. In standard Meader style, she has included a twist, the team owners are women. In a final act of defiance, Harper Chase’s father leaves the Chicago Rebels to her, and her two half-sisters. He never believed she was up to the challenge of running a pro-team. Though Chase viewed this as punishment for Harper, he actually did the best thing for her ever – he gave her a family. Don’t get me wrong, the sisters have a rocky road and they are only getting started. This relationship is really at the core of this series and I look forward to seeing it play out. I was originally in this for the hot hockey players, but I stayed for the great dynamics and watching a trio of powerful women take on the establishment.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
I adored Kate Meader's Chicago firemen but I do believe her hot Chicago hockey guys have them beat!! Remy was fantastic and Harper was the perfect match for him. In the last year of his career Remy DuPre gets traded to the bottom of the barrel Chicago Rebels and let's just say he's not too happy about it. With the last goal of holding the cup on the line he makes a deal with the tough as nails owner Harper Chase. He'll play as hard as he can and lead the team as long as she agrees to trade him to a contending team in 3 months. Everything seems fine until he starts to care a little too much. For his team and for Harper!
A fun sexy read I highly recommend.
