Irresistible You

Irresistible You (Chicago Rebels #1) by Kate Meader 



synopsis_thumb2

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…

5 out of 5 stars

This was a fantastic story! I loved Harper so much and loved watching her truly grow through her struggles. And Remy, oh my! Cajun and a hockey player? Can you get any sexier? This man was just so incredibly charming and sweet, he oozes hotness. I loved them.


Harper and Remy are truly great characters. They had the perfect blend of animosity, playfulness, and heat. I freaking love their humor together, it was a bit sarcastic and a lot of fun. They seemed to be exact opposites but somehow they fit perfectly. Harper was just so focused and determined to prove herself in a mans world and she had so many obstacles in front of her. Remy knew what he wanted and then felt like he had the rug pulled out from under him and was trying to make the best of the situation he was in. Remy was written with a Cajun accent that I could totally hear in my head and it was just the perfect addition. It was subtle, not overdone, so it flowed well with the story. In the midst of their struggle’s there is the undeniable chemistry that have these two being pulled together. All of the conflict between the two just made for an incredible story.


Not only is there an amazing romance happening but there is also this beautiful, growing relationship with Harper and her sisters. These estranged, independent women come together to find their place together and really get to know each other. When they really open up and become vulnerable (because these ladies hold things close to the vest) it really made for some incredible moments.


The storyline was fantastic with a wonderful build. Very descriptive with great detail and development. This is told from dual POVs and I thought they both had great voices. I loved the different conflicts involved and the bits of drama. There was a really nice balance between everything and I loved the emotion involved too. I am really excited for more in this series because there were bits of foreshadowing that have me hooked.


Loved this so much. Kat Meader is a go-to author for me. I always know what I'm going to get... a solid, well rounded story with amazing characters, a fantastic build, a nice amount of drama and emotion and sizzling heat. 5 hot stars for Irresistible You!
