Theo Kershaw is the luckiest guy alive.
Roaring back from a life-threatening injury, he has the world at his skates as defenseman for his new team, the Chicago Rebels. Everyone adores his big personality, his on-ice talent, and his killer smile. Everyone but his prickly neighbor—or so he thinks. One chilly Christmas Eve, Theo will learn that maybe the girl next door isn’t such a hater after all . . .
Elle Butler is the most embarrassing person on the planet.
How else can the ex-military-now-bartender explain her crush on the hot jock who lives across the hall? True, he has gorgeous green eyes and perfect cheekbones, but the filter between his brain and too-sexy mouth is permanently malfunctioning. Yet she can’t stop checking out his Instagram antics or sneaking looks at him when he’s in her bar. So. Mortifying. Running from a past filled with damning secrets, Elle’s determined that this guilty pleasure remains buried in her deepest fantasies.
Because she couldn’t possibly indulge with the Theo Kershaw. Or make a mistake that draws attention to her under-the-radar life. And she especially couldn’t be a mom to a pro-athlete’s baby . . . could she?
In this standalone sports romance set in the Chicago Rebels world, a new generation of players take to the ice and learn that all’s fair in love and hockey.
Enjoyed this story
Fun, witty and heartfelt romance.
Kate Meader has once again proved her readers with a passionate, witty and endearing story in Instacrush (the second book in her Rookie Rebels series). The characters are engaging and very likeable, and Theo is the man everyone wants in their life. His mere presence lights up any space; he is just that guy. This book has a breath-taking and totally believable storyline, with just enough intirgue in the plot to keep you guessing what’s coming next.
Ms Meader also creates a support cast that is unforgettable and sets the tone for future stories to come. Heartfelt, emotional, and with just enough drama that it doesn’t over-power the moments of humour and light-heartedness, this is a book that has it all from the combustible attraction between Theo and Elle, to the wacky, crazy nicknames that pop up throughout the book. I highly recommend this delicious story to any and all lovers of true romance and entertaining penmanship.
