Rating: 4.5 Stars


Hot in Chicago series author Kate Meader returns with her all new, scorching Chicago Rebels hockey series. 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, a chip on his shoulder, 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.

Ivy's review

When I signed up for the ARC for the second book in the series, I remembered that I had Irresistible You somewhere on my kindle, so after a bit of searching

I found it, and promptly devoured this like you’d placed a plate of fresh out the fryer Krispy Kremes in front of me. Now ask me why I delayed in reading this?  Yep, no damn good reason other than it got lost in the shuffle of my ginormous TBR, aka the  Mountain. Dude, I want to slap myself this was so good.

All the elements were clicking. I loved the setup, the leads, the great dialogue, the Firsts were fantastic, the hockey scenes were well done, and the emotional beats resonated with me. I truly enjoyed it all.

I’m seriously struggling to see how you can top Remy, but I’m more than happy to see if it can happen. Harper’s got the right mix of strength and vulnerability and I empathized completely with her dilemma. Best of all, I completely understood why Remy fell for her because I definitely have a girlcrush on her right now.

It was a little rushed at the end, and considering the old boys network that hockey is, it certainly feels more like a fantasy than grounded in reality. I think pairings for the rest of the series are pretty clear, and it seems alot is going to happen during this season for the Rebels so this ends on more of a HFN solidly on its way to an HEA.  

Loved it. All in all, I was pleased as punch to get to read this AND bonus, now I get to inhale the next book, So Over You. If you love hockey romances, I do not hesitate in recommending this.
