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.
Such a wonderful book, sports romance e was there but there is another book that tells of life’s daily struggles. You cheer for couple while waiting for the bottom to fall out. Do not miss this book.
Engaging characters and an even more engaging dialogue kept me on goal! Elle and Theo are the freshest characters I’ve read about in years. And the T-Rex sex... LOL!
Theo “Superglutes” Kershaw... WOW, WOW, WOW!! When you’re first introduced to this character in Good Guy he seems fun, charming, and a little superficial, however, Theo has lots and lots of amazing layers to his character! (By the way…in my opinion you don’t have to read Good Guy to follow this book, however, it does help to understand about all of the secondary characters.). He is sweet, kind, compassionate, sexy, loving, and sensitive (the list could go on and on.). I loved the way Kate Meader paired the ultimate extrovert, Theo, with private Elle. The interactions between the two characters was off the charts exciting. I loved reading the flirting between the two. The emotions that both characters went through with dealing with Elle’s pregnancy and both characters pasts was engrossing and very well written. This book was a lot of fun to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it!! I found myself laughing, crying, and wanting to scream sometimes!! Theo is the perfect “hero“ and I’m so glad we got to read about his character in depth. I have to admit, InstaCrush is one of my favorite reads for 2019! Kate Meader continues to deliver phenomenal books with this hockey series and I honestly can’t wait to read the next book!!
