The steamy Chicago Rebels series returns with this racy and sassy tale of embittered hearts, second chances, and going for the goal—on and off the ice.
Violet Vasquez never met her biological father, so learning he left his beloved hockey franchise—the Chicago Rebels—to her is, well, unexpected. Flat broke and close to homeless, Violet is determined to make the most of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.
Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander...but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.
For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.
Great finale to the series
I’m so sad to see this series end. I loved this book and it was a great ending. Vi and Bren were both wonderful. As usual, the friendships and sister bond were the thing that makes this stand out. Don’t get me wrong, the romance was great, but this author has a talent for pulling you into the story and series by making you love the whole group and that is what she has done throughout, and it that didn’t change here.
Delicioso! OMG! This series was Fantastic! Kate Meader saved the best for last with Violet Vasquez and Bren St. James. Their immediate attraction, simmers, and sizzles in a slow, delicious, burn that’s full of vulnerability, tension, heat, and temptation that explodes into smoking, hot, chemistry with Va Va Voom!
Such an incredible story with these in-depth and complicated characters that were so real, and dealing with real life issues and I loved every second of it. Grab your copy today and be prepared for a fantastic read!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I love me a Scotsman!
I've been waiting very patiently for this book just to get me some more of Bren. When Kate Meader introduced him in book one as big, broody and a Jason Mamoa look alike...I was sold and he did not disappoint. Add in him being such a great dad to two little girls, well lets just say there will be many hearts falling for this guy.
As much as I like to dedicate my whole review to Bren, Violet held her own against him. You learned in previous books that she survived breast cancer but we only got to see her as the fun loving woman who just wanted to enjoy life. Who could blame her for that? I'm so glad we got to see a deeper side to her. There was so much more to learn about her and enjoy about her character. I hurt for her and I rejoiced for her. She is type of character you wish you could get to know in real life.
I'm sad to see this series end. We've gotten to know some fun characters that kept us entertained. I also really loved the message of girl power in this series. I don't think we see enough of women being lifted up and Kate Meader did a fantastic job of that. These books can be read as a standalone but you will get so much more if you start from the beginning and get to know all these characters from the start. ARC provided by NetGalley.
