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…
Kate writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines who can match their men quip for quip. Her latest series, Hot in Chicago, features firefighting foster siblings. With tattoos.
There something about elite and cocky athletes that I find extremely attractive. Which is why sports romance books are some one of my favorites – especially books about hockey players. My love for all things arrogant is why I jumped at the chance to read Kate Meader’s latest release, Irresistibly You. New hockey players to drool other – hell yes!!
Here’s the deal. The owner of the Rebels passed away and he left the team to his three estranged daughters, Harper, Isobel and Violet with Irresistibly You being Harper’s story. She has worked for the team for years and had honestly hoped that her father would leave the team just to her because it’s her dream to run the team. However, she’s determined to make the best of the situation and to achieve the parameters of her father’s will.
Step one was bringing Remy DuPre aka Jinx to the team – Harper believes that he is just what the team needs to turn the corner and to start winning. Remy been so close to winning the Stanley Cup several times during his career and with this being his last year playing hockey, he wants the cup so bad he can taste it. Unfortunately, Harper essentially ruined his chances of that by bringing him to a team who is currently in second to last place.
Putting these two together is amazing. Initially at odds with one another, their witty banter is fun and exciting. And they share this incredible chemistry and intense sexual attraction to one another – it’s so much that they cannot ignore it. Even though it is inappropriate and could damage Harper’s new position as the team owner. As a reader you highly anticipate the moment when their secrets come out leaving them no other options but to face their feelings.
I freaking loved it. I was consumed by their drama and I devoured their passionate story. I cannot recommend reading it enough.
Seriously, I’m ready to buy jerseys and other Rebel’s team swag. I am all in with this series. I think it’s because the characters and not just their romance were enticing and engaging. I want to be friends with these people. I want to experience all the sisters falling in love. I want to know all their dirty little secrets. Basically, I want more and I cannot wait for the next book from the Chicago Rebels.
