    From the time Isobel Chase was old enough to remember, hockey has been the most important thing in her life. When your father’s a hockey legend and has decided he wants you to follow in his footsteps, you count yourself lucky you enjoy the game as much as he does.

    A career ending injury and the crazy will her father left now means Isobel’s only option is to help her two estranged sisters run her father’s mediocre pro hockey team. When Vadim Petrov, left-winger extraordinaire and the popper of Isobel’s cherry over a decade ago, gets transferred to her family’s team, you’d think Ms. Isobel would be excited to catch up with her first love.

    Yeah, not so much.

    You see, Vadim and Isobel parted on unpleasant terms after Isobel’s father didn’t react kindly to finding the two naked, post devirginization. Isobel wasn’t happy with the way the relationship ended, but Vadim’s status as both a hockey player and manwhore means she’s been able to keep up with his life a bit.

    Vadim’s never really gotten over Isobel or the way their relationship ended, but he’s managed to move on. Now he has his choice of any woman he wants, no strings attached, and that’s just the way he likes it. So what happens to that huge ego when he finds out he may have felt fireworks during his first and only time with Isobel but she was left unsatisfied and…hanging, so to speak.

    I loved Isobel and Vadim together. When they reconnect and start talking again, sparks start to fly immediately. The fact both Vadim and Bella are both strong characters helped to make this book a win for me. It doesn’t hurt that Vadim wants a redo of their one night together, if for no other reason than to prove to himself the myriad of women he’s had in his bed haven’t been faking it all these years.

    I expected there to be some family drama from Isobel based on the “getting to know you” phase she’s in with both of her sisters coupled with trying to run a professional hockey team together. I was surprised to find Vadim had his own compelling family story, which gave

    depth I wasn’t expecting. He’d followed Isobel’s career, knew she couldn’t play professionally again and knew how difficult that must be for her. Letting her into his world beyond just the sexy time stuff proved more arduous, but unlike stories where the male lead has “walls” around his heart simply to up the drama, Vadim seemed to genuinely want to let Isobel in but didn’t seem to know quite how to do it.

    I really enjoyed

    and I’m so glad I decided to read it, even though the first book in this series didn’t exactly wow me. Even though a good deal of the family dynamic is laid out in the first book, this one can be read as a standalone if that’s the route you chose to go. As much as I enjoyed this one, I’m thinking based on the blurbs for the remaining two books, this is one of those righteous series that just keeps getting better and better.

    I am a huge fan of sport themed books and the hocky 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 stand alone, shouldn't be a problem.

    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 stand alone, 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 ;)

    Is it any wonder I've been obsessed with all things Kate Meader ever since reading her first book? The woman is the queen of banter and she writes some of the most sizzling enemies to lovers romances I've ever read. I was immediately hooked on her brand new Chicago Rebels series, and it isn't just because it's based in my home town. Though it's safe to say I may have been a tiny bit biased. But let's be real, any author that can take three estranged sisters and make them the new owners of a sport that's a boy's only club and not only make them sassy and powerful, but totally endearing too is a total rockstar in my eyes!

    So Over You brings the story of Isobel Chase. And while her sisters have had a connection to the game because of their famous and philandering hockey player father, no one was closer to hockey than her. She had her sights set on a professional career and a handsome Russian hockey player until both were ripped away from her in the worst way possible. While she may have licked her wounds over her lost hockey career, the man that made her first time the most ho hum affair and then disappeared from her life...not so much. Here a girl builds up losing her virginity to the most handsome boy she knows and it's a wham bam, not even a thank you m'am affair. And now said man is back in her world as the newly traded player on her team and not only does she have to suffer his glares, but she has to coach him, too.

    Can I just say how much I absolutely adored the banter and camaraderie between the Chase sisters in this latest installment. It feels like with each book, their bond just gets tighter and tighter, and I simply can't get enough of it.

    But the center stage of the story was definitely the banter between Vadim and Isobel. There's nothing sexier than a brooding and glaring Russian. Unless said Russian is also now determined to right the wrongs of the past and deliver on the missing orgasms. GAH! I loved this grumpy puss. So much. I don't know how the author managed to take his grumpy and glaring ways and make him hilarious and endearing, but she totally did. Add in the secondary characters and the banter, and I had a goofy smile on my face the entire time!

    As always, the sexual tension was even hotter than the sexual chemistry. I was literary vibrating with glee to finally see the two of them give into the undeniable attraction and feelings that still run between them.

    While I loved Isobel's fierceness, admittedly her stubbornness at times wore on me. But Vadim was the perfect salve and together with her sisters, they gave her what she needed to get herself together.

    I love a sexy second chance romance, and So Over You delivered on that end and then some! If you're looking for a fun, quick paced, and sizzling sports romance, this book is not to be missed.

    After a minor book hangover from another hockey story I was looking forward to reading "So Over You." I knew Kate Meader would deliver and boy, did she.

    In a world dominated by alpha males like ice hockey it's hard for a woman to be heard. When you make your three daughters co-owners of the team with the least prospects of winning a game and least of all making the play-offs AND making this a condition of the inheritance you deserve a special place in hell. Make those three sisters estranged and you have a recipe for disaster. Right? Wrong.

    Ice Hockey is in Isobel's blood. It's the one thing that she always wanted to do and the career-ending injury she had still hurts on a soul-deep level. Then there is the issue of having to prove her position as a coach on the team and having to deal with the man who popped her cherry when she was a teenager and forgot to rock her world.

    Isobel loves hockey so much, having her dream ripped away from her leaves her a bit like a fish out of water. The next best thing is coaching but it's always been hockey for her. While I loved Isobel's drive, her ambition, I was on the fence about her true feelings and wondering if Vadim really meant more to her than hockey or if he really was only the next best thing, too. However, she did convince me in the end. But: Isobel comes with a load of daddy issues. Her womanizing father did a number on her but her issues were quickly forgotten in the end, so that was an inconsistency that I couldn't look past.

    Vadim, the big, grumpy Russian, was simply adorable and personally my highlight. He is this seemingly entitled, arrogant man so when he learns that he left young Isobel wanting all those years ago he is indignant...and then a little insecure. He is melodramatic, often unintentionally funny, and high-handed and has a serious alpha-vibe about him. All this together though is a weirdly endearing package. His speech without contractions becomes more pronounced the more time you spend with him.

    The sisters relationship is so obviously improving and I was happy to see that the youngest of them didn't let Isobel get away with her issues. All the sisters interactions show me that there is real bonding happening.

    Of course Kate lets us spend time with Remy (yay!), Cade (who I'm tickled silly about), Dante (OMG!) and Bren (Scottish brooding deliciousness!). I love their dynamics. I adored Vadim's relationship with his sister.

    Kate Meader's writing is like water. It flows effortlessly, pleasantly and is full with her own personal wit and humor. She really has that down pat. I have come to appreciate her books so much. So Over You was a wonderful addition to this series and I'm really sad that there are only two more installments. Even with the minor issues I was supremely entertained. I can't wait to get Dante and Cade, and Violet and Bren in my hands!

    This book wasn't just hot, it was also filled with great moments, funny banter, and solid character development.

    Vadim Petrov and Isobel Chase had a thing between them during their teenage years. Their passion for hockey was as encompassing as their passion for each other. But things didn't really work out. They lost touch over the years until now. Vadim is playing for the Rebels and that means being in close contact with Isobel.

    This book wasn't just hot, it was also filled with great moments, funny banter, and solid character development.

    Vadim Petrov and Isobel Chase had a thing between them during their teenage years. Their passion for hockey was as encompassing as their passion for each other. But things didn't really work out. They lost touch over the years until now. Vadim is playing for the Rebels and that means being in close contact with Isobel.

    So Over You has top-notch romance and the sizzling chemistry between Vadim and Isobel can't be beat. It just leaps off the page. There's a depth of emotion to this book that took me by surprise. Isobel was as much a victim of her father's control as Harper was but in different way. While older sister Harper was dismissed and ignored, Isobel had her father's approval, that is as long as she continues to follow the path he's laid out for her. He totally made use of her love for hockey to extend his legacy. He was an unconscionable ass, and my heart felt so much for Isobel. The pressure she went through especially after her injury knowing that she's lost not just her dreams of playing hockey but her father as well.

    And Vadim!! Gah! He was exactly what Isobel needed then and now. He suffered too. And some of my favorite parts of the book involved Vadim and his family. Yes, he's romance-hero perfect but there's so much more depth to him. His earnestness and the way he loves Isobel is what made this book for me. And I loved that he wasn't perfect. He made some boneheaded decisions but as a reader, his motivations are clear that you understand.

    These two together lit up the pages for sure. Everything, from the banter to their teasing and their sexy times, was perfect and came alive in the page. Kate Meader certainly know and love these characters. It's the only explanation I have for how these characters were intricately written, their actions and motivations so in sync that once I started reading, I just couldn't stop. The story, the romance was just well done.

    This series is definitely shaping up to be one of my favorites this year. I'm so looking forward to Violet's story now. And Dante's! Oh my gosh, he was a standout in this book. He was introduced in the first book but it was in this book where he really stood out. And I'm so happy that Kate is giving him a book of his own because gah! I want his story so much.

    Hockey has been Isobel Chase’s life ever since she can remember, but her career imploded after a head injury almost ended her life. Now she finds herself part owner, along with her two other sisters, of The Chicago Rebels, her deceased father’s team, and since she can’t play, coaching will have to be the next best thing. For a chance at the job Isobel must personally coach their newly acquired player, Vadim Petrov through his knee injury to prove her skills. Unfortunately, they have a checkered past, a night together that started out amazing, but didn’t wrap up so well for Isobel. That night got Vadim kicked out of the country, back to Russia thanks to her father.

    The attraction they felt as teenagers only burns brighter now, but Isobel is serious about making her position work, and gaining the respect of the team. So, no-go with Vadim, even if he is about ten times hotter now! Plus, her experience with Vadim started off all hot and bothered, but left her hanging in the end, so it wouldn’t be all that great anyhow, right?

    Vadim is back in the States, traded after an injury, back with the Girl with the Blazing Skates. Isobel Chase amazed Vadim and lit up his fires when they were teenagers, and it postponed his US Hockey career. Finding out he didn’t live up to his reputation as the Czar of Pleasure with Isobel back then makes him determined to make up for the past and then some! Oh my, a man on a mission I wholeheartedly approve of!

    I just loved Vadim! All big and broody, a heart the size of Texas, and a dry sense of humor! I immediately connected with Isobel, too; my heart went out to her and all she went through. Vadim and Isobel together were

    , but they’re romance was more than just sizzling physical attraction. Their chemistry was off-the charts, but I appreciated the many layers to these characters as their vulnerabilities were revealed. Vadim’s were wrapped up in family issues, and Isobel’s stemming from her loss of career; well, that and a kind of shitty dad. Loved the understanding and support between them!

    This is the first Kate Meader I picked up, but it won’t be my last! Her writing is playful, humorous, and hot! Everything I love in a romance! She brought Vadim and Isobel to life; their their struggles and their highs all felt real to me making their journey towards a HEA a pleasure to experience!

    Kate Meader's Chicago Rebels series continues with Isobel and Vadim's story. A delightfully entertaining second chance romance that had me laughing consistently from her trademark witty humor. Ever since getting a little bit of everyone's backstories in the previous book,

    Isobel's was the one I was most interested in reading next.

    Out of the three sisters who have taken over ownership of the Rebels from their father Clifford Chase, Isobel was "the golden child". When she showed a natural affinity for hockey as a young girl, he focused all of his affection and attention on her. He had lofty ambitions for her: reaching the pinnacle of women's hockey and all of the glory that entailed to his name. Sure, it seemed like she was the one who had it easy. To be the favored one. But with his favor, came lofty expectations that she worked herself to the bone to reach. When she climbed as high as she could go, the crash from grace was even more painful from the top.

    Isobel is still coming to terms with her professional hockey career abruptly ending. Her entire identity, her passion, and her whole heart had been centered around playing the sport she loved. With one serious injury two years before, she was set adrift and without direction. Throw Vadim Petrov into the equation as the new player on the team, and you have one very unsettled woman. Vadim was her teenage crush, first lover, and forced out of the US by her father when his feelings for her were threatening to become too much of a distraction. They never got to have one last conversation before they were separated. She was in the hospital recovering from her head injury, and he was deported back to Russia. So to say that there were loads of unresolved feelings between them would be an understatement.

    I have to say, I thought Isobel would be the star character here, but I think Vadim stole the spotlight from her. He was such an original character with a personality that kept me on my toes. On one hand, he was stiff and formal with people, almost a little haughty. But then he'd turn around and surprise you with these glimpses of humor that were even funnier because of the contrast. You'd think some of these traits would make him unlikable, but it had the opposite effect. Isobel was also enjoyable in her own right. She was disciplined, strong, and independent. I think a lot of readers could identify with her journey in having to rebuild her life from scratch. One event can forever alter the path you have mapped out for yourself, and there's nothing you can do but scramble to reroute and woman up.

    Isobel is coaching a youth hockey team, but hopes to move towards coaching the Rebels eventually. Getting wrapped up in Vadim as she acts as a consultant for him would be

    inadvisable. Not only would she lose respect for dating a team member and risk her chances of coaching, but their one time together as teens was not exactly fireworks and earth shattering passion. Which brings us to one of the more unique aspects of this story. The fact that teenage Isobel was left unsatisfied all those years ago makes for a very quirky and entertaining twist. He may have a playboy rep now, but he certainly wasn't the "Czar of Pleasure". More like, the Czar of One Minute. Seeing him try to piece back together his shattered manhood was entertaining to say the least.

    My only issues being that I would have liked to have seen the conflict go in a different direction. The forbidden aspect due to the owner wanting a relationship with a team member seems to be a repeating theme, and I wish we could get a little more variety in there. I don't really buy that her reputation would take that much of a hit for being in a relationship with Vadim. After Harper went public, everyone seems to be dealing just fine. The fact that one player talks smack about them, does not mean that that is the general consensus of all.

    Then there was one point where Isobel was pretty hypocritical in an attempt to keep Vadim at a distance. One moment she was telling him that they never had a chance as teens because hockey would always be her first priority. Then pages later, she was internally judging him by saying that she couldn't be with him because she would never be her first priority. Not a game changer for me by any means, but it a little nitpick that bothered me.

    Overall, I thought this book was funny, fast paced (despite the 400 pg. count), and a welcome addition to the series. If you're a sports romance fan, I highly recommend this series. Even if you haven't read the first book, this is easily read as a standalone. The series will continue with

    the GM Dante Moretti's story in March 2018.
