Review: ​So Over You (Chicago Rebels #2) by Kate Meader | About That Story 

So Over You (Chicago Rebels #2) by Kate Meader 


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...


5 out of 5 stars

This was such a well written story with so much depth and emotion and the perfect amount of playfulness. Vadim and Isobel were excellent characters. A truly fantastic read!

I loved the animosity and tension between Vadim and Isobel, you could feel the tension between these two but also their chemistry that was simmering just underneath. I loved learning their histories and all the details about them. Isobel was so strong and determined but a bit lost and I enjoyed her battle as she found her way. Vadim was awesome. Seriously, the more the story went on, the more I loved him. He had this cocky confidence that I found enduring but also this dry humor that had me smiling. How it was written, I could hear him speaking in a Russian accent in my head, which was awesome and added another layer to the story. There are major ups and downs, drama, tension, and sexy times, but there were these perfect moments of playfulness too rounding it all out.

Besides this fantastic second chance romance between Vadim and Isobel, they had their own personal struggles they were dealing with and working through. There was just so much emotion behind it all, I could feel their pain and felt for them. Besides a story of love, I got this huge sense of healing and forgiveness that really resonated with me.

I loved all the secondary characters as well and really enjoyed the developing relationships between Isobel and her sisters. It's like a ton of stories happening in one book and I loved all the layers. I love the guys on the hockey team and how they play into everything too. I adored the foreshadowing for the next two stories, needless to say, I am completely hooked and excited for more.

This story had it all: tension, drama, fun, sexiness, emotion, animosity, and most of all love and heart. I thought there was a excellent flow, it had great details and descriptions and there was an awesome build. I am a sucker for a great build that leads up to an awesome ending and this ending pretty much had me choking back tears with my heart in my throat. Excellent read!
