She’s got game everywhere but the bedroom. Enter the player who knows exactly how to grade her curves . . .
After a very public breakup and a viral post that declares him the villain, power forward Cal Foreman is taking a timeout from women and relationships to focus on hockey. When Chicago Rebels captain and old friend, Vadim Petrov, “volunteers” him to help train Vadim’s sister Mia, Cal figures he can do a favor for a pal and get ready for the season with his new team. But the imperious Russian would slice a skate blade through Cal’s internal organs if he knew what lessons Mia really wants.
Yeah, not that kind of stickhandling.
Hockey phenom and Olympics hopeful Mia Wallace needs help seducing the man of her dreams. That man is most definitely not Cal Foreman: notorious playboy, thorn in her side, and her brother's bestie. But surely a guy with his reputed skill set has a few tips on how she can nail her target—which makes him the perfect foreplayer.
Cal knows Mia sees him as merely the warm-up act in her grand plan to win another man, but as they spend more time together, he wonders if that’s enough.
If they could be more.
And if he could convince her he’s worthy of the starting line-up . . . in her heart?
I’ve loved all of the books in this series so far. Great characters and story lines.
I have read every book Kate has written to date. I couldn’t be more impressed with her talent! I love Mia And Cal’s story. The best part of all these stories is the possibility of continuing their individual stories further.
Loved Mia and Cal!
Kate Meader has another hit on her hands with Foreplayer. There’s a dramatic undertone, but, for the most part, it’s a lighthearted and fun addition to the Rookie Rebels series, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Mia Wallace and Cal Foreman might seem an unlikely match at first, but it soon becomes apparent, to the reader at least, they’re actually perfect for one another. Watching them finally come to that realization is highly entertaining. They’re casual friends, but there’s a definite competitive and frenemies vibe that just adds extra spice to their relationship.
I adored Mia Wallace in So Over You, her brother Vadim Petrov’s story in the Chicago Rebels series. It isn’t surprising she’s grown into a confident, determined, forthright woman who goes after what she wants. What — or who — she wants is definitely not a hockey player. Is it? Over time, Cal proves not all hockey players are complete dic…jerks.
Cal Foreman is yet another in a long line of the author’s irresistible heroes. Although Cal is yummier than most. A fierce protectiveness hidden behind an easy-going charm quickly made him my new favorite Rookie Rebel.
Many of the original cast from the Chicago Rebels series have prominent roles in this story. Seeing them and catching up with their families and careers is always a highlight and something I look forward to.
Foreplayer delivers the snarky competitiveness, sexual tension, emotional, and steamy moments the blurb promises. It hooked me immediately, and I alternately couldn’t put it down and wanted it to never end.
This story can be read as a standalone but reading the previous books in both series would explain some relationships and increase the reader enjoyment. The other stories are fabulous in their own right and shouldn’t be missed.
