Blog Tour: Hooked on You by Kate Meader

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.



Hooked On You may be book 3 in the Chicago Rebels but I am reading this series all about face and it’s still one of the best hockey series i have read, it’s made no difference to the enjoyment I got from this book and I have yet to read book 2 and yes I’m sad this is the final book what a great book to finish on and I’m sure I will be reading and re reading.
Bren and Violet’s attraction for each other has been building up slowly but it’s about to explode right in the middle of the playoffs can they survive the pressure, their pasts and meddling sisters. 
Hooked on You took over my weekend I needed to find out how Bren and Violet’s story ended, I needed to make sure the broody half Scot half Canadian single dad finally got together with the sassy strong minded Violet because if anyone deserved a HEA these two did. Violet was only meant to be with the Chicago Rebels for one season to satisfy her fathers stipulation in his will that the 3 estranged sisters would run the franchise for a season, Bren wasn’t looking for a relationship but he needed a reliable sitter for his daughters what he didn’t expect was for him and his daughters to fall for the sitter.........
This book has it all, love, passion, witty banter and 2 adorable little girls and let’s be honest ladies what not to love about a broody hot single father who always puts his kids first, add in a beautiful sole who hides behind a wall and you get the perfect love story. If you love Hockey romances this series should be a atomic one click. Loved the characters, loved the story and love this author writing.

I absolutely adored this book! 

I came in late to this series as this was the first book I’ve read by Kate Meader and the first book in this series. I didn’t even know until I finished reading that this was the last book in her Chicago Rebels series. Clearly, it can be read as a stand-alone haha! 

Violet and Bren make for one awesome and powerful couple. They both have ghosts in their past they battle on a daily basis but in the end make them both so much stronger. 

I found myself laughing out loud or secretly giggling while reading this book because Violet’s inner monologue is hysterical! Violet’s character is a riot and makes the perfect fiery Latina. 

So who better for her than a big, broody Scot’s man! Bren loves fiercely and will do anything for his two daughters and his teammates. I loved reading the struggle that Bren goes through throughout this book. He truly is an amazing hero.

I will most definitely be reading more from this author now that I’ve discovered her! 

I just fell in love with Bren in Hooked On You. That brooding Scot had so many uphill battles starting with dealing with his alcoholism. When he realized what was truly important in his life...his daughters he does whatever is necessary to fix himself so he could be there for them.  Along the way, he was gifted with the Vibrant Violet who simply swept his feet out from under him. She has had her own battles to face, but she is  sassy, smart and adores his daughters. They both bring out the best in each other and find the strength to move on from their past, together! 


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.
