So Over You
Book 2, The Chicago Rebels Series
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Three estranged sisters struggle to sustain their late father’s failing hockey franchise in Kate Meader’s sizzling Chicago Rebels series. In this second entry, middle sister Isobel is at a crossroads in her personal and professional lives. But both are about to get a significant boost with the addition of a domineering Russian powerhouse to the Rebels...
Isobel Chase knows hockey. She played NCAA, won silver at the Games, and made it thirty-seven minutes into the new National Women’s Hockey League before an injury sidelined her dreams. Those who can’t, coach, and a position as a skating consultant to her late father’s hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels, seems like a perfect fit. Until she’s assigned her first job: the man who skated into her heart as a teen and relieved her of her pesky virginity. These days, left-winger Vadim Petrov is known as the Czar of Pleasure, a magnet for puck bunnies and the tabloids alike. But back then... let’s just say his inability to sink the puck left Isobel frustratingly scoreless.
Vadim has a first name that means “ruler,” and it doesn’t stop at his birth certificate. He dominates on the ice, the practice rink, and in the backseat of a limo. But a knee injury has produced a bad year, and bad years in the NHL don’t go unrewarded. His penance? To be traded to a troubled team where his personal coach is Isobel Chase, the woman who drove him wild years ago when they were hormonal teens. But apparently the feeling was not entirely mutual.
That Vadim might have failed to give Isobel the pleasure that was her right is intolerable, and he plans to make it up to her—one bone-melting orgasm at a time. After all, no player can perfect his game without a helluva lot of practice...
Fun Hockey Series!
Who knew Russian talk could be so sexy? There was a lot to this couple that I really enjoyed. Vadim's accent was a big draw, but seeing him with his sister that he just found out about and his mom that had left him when he was 10 really gave this story heart. I was worried Vadim might be too much of a womanizer in the beginning but it did not lead to that. I was very thankful to see the author wasn't going to be throwing a bunch of other women drama in this story. Isobel's character was interesting. Her drive and ambition in a male dominated sport made her stand out in this series. I loved how she handled a few things with Vadim that could have become unnecessary drama but didn't due to her reactions. Add in more Harper and Remy from book 1, more teasers of Violet and Bren and this has been a fun series so far.

#Swoon! Swoon worth hero? Check. Strong independent heroine? Check. Major attitude and animosity? Check. Being totally in denial of your feelings? Oh yeah! Isobel and Vadim were so hot and sizzling together. Their animosity and heat towards one another was off the charts and I loved being totally absorbed into it all. The conflict between them made for the best one liners, great verbal sparing and sizzling chemistry. So many great moments between them and I couldn’t get enough. I love the back and forth and tension. And when they explode they explode! Kate Meader really brings the sexy time scenes.
I really loved this storyline and the writing. Loved the feel, the pace, and all the details. I loved getting to see other characters from the previous story as well. Get ready for some serious fun, a whole lot of sparing and off the charts sexy in this incredibly entertaining story. Don’t miss it!

Isobel Chase is strong, confident, and talented on the ice maybe not quite so much in life but she's determined not to let anyone see that vulnerable side. She's working hard to earn respect in the hockey coaching world and she can't let her newest assignment, Vadim Petrov damage what she's worked so hard for. Vadim is Russian born, dominating, and pure sex. He and Isobel have a history. As teens they shared one night of passion before being caught by her father. When Vadim finds out that night may not have been as memorable for Isobel as it was for him he makes it his mission to show her just how much his uDon't skills have improved!
Don't miss this one. I highly recommend it.
