- Book 2 of Chicago Rebels
Three estranged sisters struggle to sustain their late father's failing hockey franchise in Kate Meader's sizzling Chicago Rebels series. In this second entry, middle sister Isobel is at a crossroads in her personal and professional lives. But both are about to get a significant boost with the addition of a domineering Russian powerhouse to the Rebels...
Isobel Chase knows hockey. She played NCAA, won silver at the Games, and made it thirty-seven minutes into the new National Women's Hockey League before an injury sidelined her dreams. Those who can't, coach, and a position as a skating consultant to her late father's hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels, seems like a perfect fit. Until she's assigned her first job: the man who skated into her heart as a teen and relieved her of her pesky virginity. These days, left-winger Vadim Petrov is known as the Czar of Pleasure, a magnet for puck bunnies and the tabloids alike. But back then... let's just say his inability to sink the puck left Isobel frustratingly scoreless.
Vadim has a first name that means "ruler," and it doesn't stop at his birth certificate. He dominates on the ice, the practice rink, and in the backseat of a limo. But a knee injury has produced a bad year, and bad years in the NHL don't go unrewarded. His penance? To be traded to a troubled team where his personal coach is Isobel Chase, the woman who drove him wild years ago when they were hormonal teens. But apparently the feeling was not entirely mutual.
That Vadim might have failed to give Isobel the pleasure that was her right is intolerable, and he plans to make it up to her—one bone-melting orgasm at a time. After all, no player can perfect his game without a helluva lot of practice...

5 icy superstars for SO OVER YOU!!
Isobel Chase's storied hockey career on the ice has ended in dramatic fashion, but now that her father left her and her sisters' the Chicago Rebels, she's determined to make sure the team succeeds. She's sure that the secret lies with ex-lover Vadim Petrov, the phenom Russian superstar with a bum leg. Isobel knows that she's more than capable of getting him in top form again...if he decides to let her near him. The two have more chemistry than a high school lab, so reconnecting after years apart is like throwing gas on a flame. The old saying "those who can't, coach" doesn't exactly apply to Isobel, and she wants one more chance to prove to herself…and the world…that she's as good as her reputation says. Hopefully Vad will still be there when the ice melts.
How freakin' awesome is this book!?!? SO OVER YOU, book 2 in the Chicago Rebels series, features one of the best book couples I've read in a long time. Isobel and Vadim were simply fabulous, their banter both making me laugh and making me groan. They were so well developed and so damn sexy that I couldn't flip the pages fast enough! It doesn't hurt that Vad was beyond yummy, I mean seriously, as much as I loathe anything Russian right now, I fell totally in lust with this dude. Ms. Meader's writing style never fails to enthrall me, everything I've read by this talented author has been so delicious. There were way too many scenes in this book that had me LMAO'ing for me to just pick one to share, so I highly recommend just grabbing this book and locking the door for a while and enjoy the blissful getaway from the real world!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
