So Over You
Series: Chicago Rebels #2

Releases: December 4, 2017
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 Olympic silver, 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...
Praise For The Chicago Rebels Series:
“Meader’s strength is creating characters who live, breathe, and jump off the page; Remy and Harper shine, and the supporting cast of characters, including Harper’s half-sisters, is very strong. The mix of sexual tension and emotional decisions will lead Meader’s series launch to many a keeper shelf.” —Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW (Irresistible You, Book 1)
“Meader takes her readers on a breathtaking, non-stop, glorious ride. The sex scenes are lyrically written with fresh, descriptive prose. Enough is included about hockey to add its fast rhythm to the book. Remy’s family is multi-faceted and fills the pages with joy. Readers will love the relationship between Remy and Harper, and will be excited for the next story — Isobel’s.” —RT Book Reviews Four and a Half Star TOP PICK (Irresistible You, Book 1)

Originally from Ireland, Kate Meader cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Harlequins thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron, a fire hose, or a hockey stick, and she's there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines (and heroes) who can match their men quip for quip. Visit her at KateMeader.com.
Isobel Chase knows all the ends and outs of hockey, she's played it, excelled at it, and now she is going to try her hand at coaching it. It was always her dream to play professionally and she had her shot, but it ended quickly when she suffered an injury that there was no returning from, so now she is reuniting with her sisters and helping them keep their fathers legacy alive by running his team. She is starting to feel like things in her life might finally be looking up.... but then she meets her first "student" and she begins to wonder if she just got herself in over her head!
Vadim Petrov has never really had to want for the attention of a woman, normally all he has to do is look in their direction and they are falling all over themselves to maintain his attention... but when he meets his gorgeous new coach, his charm seems to be defective! They have history, and he thought it was a good history, one that they could rekindle, but Isobel doesn't seem to agree, she wants nothing to do with him... other than whipping his butt into shape!!
Within the pages of this steamy little tale you will meet two headstrong lovebirds who have a history that is filled with some really good memories and some that are anything but...so when they are forced to work together things getting a little heated in more ways than one! Isobel still carries the hurt caused by Vadim's abrupt departure and isn't so willing to tangle with the "ruler" of the ice again, while he sees this opportunity as a way to reunite with the one girl who managed to penetrate his heart. So, as you can imagine there is a lot of tug o' war going on, and a whole lot of angst filled battles that have the temperatures rising, and fireworks swirling... and naughty encounters that will leave you blushing!! I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these two, they had me smiling, swooning, laughing, and blushing throughout... hands down my favorite novel from Ms. Meader to date!! Highly recommend you check out this series, each installment is heavy on the steam and overflowing with heart!!
