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…
I am a huge fan of sport themed books and the hockey ones are my absolute favorite. I also have a big thing for Russian men…So, of course, I had to read this one.
This is a series about three sisters, who have inherited the Chicago Rebels Hockey team from their father. Each book features a different sister. This time we get Isobel’s story. I did read the first book, but I think reading this one as a standalone, shouldn’t be a problem.
Isobel used to be an Olympic hockey player herself. That is until an injury ruined her dreams. Isobel not only co-owns the Chicago Rebels…she is also a coach…or well she is on her way to be one. Those who can’t play…coach.
Now she is supposed to be a personal coach to Vadim…
The newest member of their team…There is only one small problem. Vadim is the one who took her virginity when she was 18. Their encounter ended in a disaster because her father caught them, but that’s not the only reason it was a disaster. The fact that he didn’t really pleasure Isobel, also has something to do with it. 😉
When Vadim hears about this, his ego is pretty hurt. He is dead set on righting his wrongs…and boy does he!!
This was a very entertaining, sexy, funny and sweet read. I am very curious about the next books in this series. 😉
