Irresistible You by Kate Meader…ARC Review

Irresistible You is out TODAY!


Hot in Chicago series author Kate Meader returns with her all new, scorching Chicago Rebels hockey series, featuring her signature “steamy sex scenes, colorful characters, and riveting dialogue” (Romantic Times). 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, a chip on his shoulder, 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…


My Review:

Irresistible You is the first book in a brand spanking new series from Kate Meader, an author I just adore.  I knew this book was going to be good, and boy oh boy was it ever!  I have one thing to say to you all….REMY DUPRE *swoon*

Let me just set up the scene: three estranged sisters are thrown together when their NHL Hockey team owning father bites the dust. Harper is now in charge of the team and has her work cut out for her because they aren’t exactly the best team in the NHL and she is determined to make this team a winning one (girl, being a Philly fan here, I totally feel you on that one!) so she gets her hands on a superstar.  A sexy Cajun superstar…Remy DuPre. What follows is a delicious push and pull of wit and attraction.  But, because Ms. Meader writes some delicious heroes, I knew Harper wouldn’t be able to ignore Remy’s charm for long.  I mean he peppers his sentences with French, for goodness sake!  He can cook! He loves his family, especially his sisters! He’s a hockey player!  How many more boxes in the “dream man” category can we check off?! So, even though she has very valid reasons for trying to stay away from Remy, including miserable past failed relationships and the whole “she’s a woman in a man’s world” thing, poor Harper didn’t stand a chance.  The build up in their relationship was sublime and I loved watching them go from just working together to having so much more.

Adding to the delicious mix of Harper and Remy are Harper’s sisters and their own journey together.  They have had a less than ideal childhood and now that they have no choice but to work together to save this hockey team, they will have to find the sister bond they never really shared.  I absolutely loved that layer to the story.  It really brought all these characters to life and now I can’t wait to see if each sister gets her own happy ever after.

Filled with colorful and interesting characters, tons of heat, and lots of emotion, this is one helluva kick off to a series I know readers will love. Irresistibly Yours is a total win! Thank you, Ms. Meader, for another fabulous read!
