Hooked On YOU by Kate Meader BLOG TOUR

Hooked on You

by Kate Meader Chicago Rebels, #4 Publication Date: May 7, 2018 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Sports Romance, Standalone



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.




Originally from Ireland, USA Today bestselling author 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 or a fire hose, and she’s there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines who can match their men quip for quip.

Hooked On You (Chicago Rebels, #3)Hooked On You by Kate Meader
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Chicago Rebels series has been solid from start to finish, with a sustained quality of story telling so that it makes me rather sad that this has now come to the end. I have anticipated the couple in this series right from book one, as I am sure many others have done. Bren, the big, gorgeous grumpy lump of Scot was more than promised and Violet his opposite in so many ways.

HOOKED ON YOU has a continued family focus in terms of the sisterhood inheriting this team but also in terms of Bren's kids, Franky and Catriona. I have to say these two girls made this book a little extra-special. This element brought a depth of understanding of Bren as a character, and I liked everything I saw in terms of who Bren had now come to be.

"She looked more closely-not a chore in the slightest. She supposed he did look a little familiar, kind of like if Jason Momoa and Gerard Butler had gotten down and dirty and sweated out a big-shouldered beast-child." 

I had assumed Violet to be the least connected of the sisters but this book brings you closer to who Violet really is. She had a vulnerability that was nice to see and her intentions to cover her feelings towards Chicago, the team and her sisters were unsuccessful.

Bren's struggles felt utterly real but his focus was admirable. Bren won me over quickly and Bren with Violet made my kindle tremble!

There are a couple of hockey romance series that stand out to me and this is one of them. The characters are all different within the 4 books (there's a novella - m/m). If you're looking for sports romance with strength, this is for you.

I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.
