Dante Moretti has just landed his dream job: GM of the Chicago Rebels. And screw the haters who think there should be an asterisk next to his name because he’s the first out managing executive in pro hockey. He’s earned the right to be here and nothing will topple him off that perch—especially not an incredibly inconvenient attraction to his star defenseman, Cade “Alamo” Burnett. Cade has always been careful to keep his own desires on the down low, but his hot Italian boss proves to be a temptation he can’t resist. Sure, they both have so much to lose, but no one will ever know...

As Dante and Cade’s taboo affair heats up off the ice and their relationship gets more and more intense, they’ll have to decide: is love worth risking their careers? Or is this romance destined to be forever benched?

Undone by You is so damn hot!  Dante Moretti and Cade “Alamo” Burnett’s attraction is palpable.  They simply sizzle together.  I love so many things about Author Kate Meader’s Undone by You.  The sexual tension is through the roof.  The drama is intensely seductive as Dante tries to fight his attraction to Cade all the while Cade pursues him fiercely.  Dante and Cade will pull you in from page one and have you aching for more of their powerful romance.  Undone by You is a winner! If you like it forbidden and hot this book is for you! Dante and Cade’s romance is an excellent addition to the Chicago Rebel’s series.

I am happy to Joyfully Recommend Undone by You! It’s my first recommendation for 2018!

I’m so in love with Isobel Chase & Vadim Petrov I feel like I might bust! I’m simply cannot stop smiling.

The Chase sisters must get their hockey team the Chicago Rebels into the playoffs if they want to hold on to the team.  Per their father’s will, if they do not get into the playoffs the team will be sold.  A key to winning is their latest acquisition Vadim Petrov.  It is Isobel’s job to get him back into fighting shape after a recent injury. There is just a tiny problem…these two have a past.

Olympic Silver Medalist Isobel Chase was set to be the best female hockey player in the world until she was sidelined by a life-threatening injury.  Now, she must settle for coaching the game she so desperately wants to play.  However, getting grown men to listen to a female coach is easier said than done.  ­Vadim Petrov is the latest roadblock on her road to a full-time coaching job.

The last person Vadim Petrov wants to help him get back up to speed on the ice is Isobel Chase.  He’s still harboring anger about the last time she entered his life and dashed his dreams. Yet, he cannot deny there is still a spark between them.  He quickly realizes she might just melt the ice wall he’s built around his heart.

Isobel and Vadim must decide whether pursuing the chemistry between them is worth possibly losing everything they hold dear.

WOW! Author Kate Meader blew me away with passion and grace in So Over You the second book in her Chicago Rebels series.

Isobel and Vadim will draw you in the second they share the page. It’s impossible to miss the angsty unresolved feelings between them.  While each would rather forget their teenage romance, it keeps rearing its head.  As they try to convince each other that they are So Over their past; it continues to pull them together.  Isobel and Vadim are both very obstinate it is fun watching their walls crumble.  If you love romances filled with scorching scenes and emotional storytelling Ms. Meader’s So Over You if for You!

So Over You really takes second chance romance to the next level by pairing it with a high stakes subplot. Everyone in the story has something riding on the outcome of the team.  I love the fact that the secondary characters play such important roles in the series.  Speaking of which, I cannot wait to learn more about Dante and his possible relationship!

So Over You is bursting with unforgettable romance that will leave you with chill bumps…the good kind.  I enjoyed the first book in the series Irresistible You so much.  I didn’t think Ms. Meader could follow that up with another story so spectacularly, but she hit the mark with So Over You.

So Over You is one of those stay up all night books that will have you wanting to start it over again when you finish.  So Over You is a Joyfully Recommended Read for December and the perfect book to wrap up 2017 with!

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 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…

I was attracted to Kate Meader’s Irresistible You from the description.  I thought it was unique for three estranged sisters to inherit a hockey team, be forced to work and live together.  This basically guaranteed lots of emotion and I love a story that gives the feels. Ms. Meader didn’t disappoint.  Irresistible You is just freaking great.  I will be the first to say that I am a bit of a suspense junkie so a straight up contemporary is unusual for me.  However, the blurb hooked me and the seductive chemistry between Harper and Remy kept me turning the pages.


Irresistible You didn’t have as much of the sister storyline as I anticipated but Meader more than made up for it with the romance.  The scenes where all three sisters are together are hilarious especially pottery night 😊 Each of the girls are wildly different which I find intriguing. I cannot wait to find out what happens when they find their men.


Harper and Remy are two fascinating characters.  Each are stereotyped by their peers and each other.  As they pull apart each other’s layers the emotional and sexual tension becomes palpable and downright irresistible. Pun intended 😊 Ms. Meader is very good at creating a bond between the reader and her characters.  For instance, Remy’s family is simply gold.  It’s impossible not to fall in love with them and it’s easy to see how he became a good man.  While he thrived from his family and their support Harper thrived from her determination to surpass all her naysayers.  The number one naysayer being her father.  Irresistible You is a heady romance that will make you weak in the knees but it is also a powerful story built around strong characters.


Kate Meader’s Chicago Rebels series is a Hit! I Loved it and I’m Joyfully Recommending it! Irresistible You is a sexy, sassy, oh so tasty feast.
