Irresistible You is book one in the brand new series, Chicago Rebels, by Kate Meader. So, I might have learned something new about myself while reading this book. That I have a thing for hot Cajun men with huge hearts.
Remy DuPre is otherwise known as Jinx, because he’s known as one of the unluckiest players in the NHL. All he’s ever wanted was to win the Stanley Cup. But it has always evaded him. Remy is getting older, his body just can’t take the abuse anymore. So this is suppo ...more

You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. - Wayne Gretzky
Remy DuPre, Boston's star center and the Cajun they call Jinx because he is the unluckiest guy in the NHL, isn't happy. He has been traded and his new team screws with his last chance of winning the coveted Stanley Cup. The Rebels are the league's second worst hockey team and their new owner, Harper Chase, is now interrupting his farewell bash, busting his balls and dragging him ...more
And then she was in his arms, the way it wasn’t supposed to be, but the only way that made sense. Greedy lips met in a torrent of hunger as they melted into each other, her mouth on his so amazing he could die. His hands strayed to her ass and bound her close to make sure she was real and could never, ever leave.
It's official. I'm totally and completely head over heals for this brand new series from Kate Meader. Hook, line, and sinker, people. HOOK. LINE. AND SINKER. Or shoul ...more
"I need you to know that in another universe, this would be a done deal, and the only thing stopping me from making you mine is that in this universe, my current employment situation stops me from making good on all the dirty things I’m dying to do to you. You understand?”
Outside appearances would lead most folks to believe Harper Chase has lead a pretty sweet life. She learned the ins and outs of hockey at the hands of her father, an ex-player turned coach turned owner, and af ...more

HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]
It was one thing to give her his heart, but Remy DuPre was giving her everything.
After reading the introduction to the series In Skates Trouble , I was all fired up to read Remy's story. The previous book was just an appetizer in comparison to this full course of skillful characterization and sharp wit. Meader managed to fully flesh out an entirely ne ...more
Kate Meader kicked off the Chicago Rebels series really well with the novella; In Skate’s Trouble, and I was eager to see Harper Chase, the first of the Chase sisters to have her story told in Irresistible You.
If you have read any of Kate’s previous books you will know that her characters give good snark and banter, and as much can be said for Harper and Remy, and I really liked them together as a couple. As you would expect for a man in the ...more
What an awesome start to a new series! I love a story about girl power. To see a series where women in a position of power of a male dominated sport, is a huge draw for me. The author did such a good job of creating a strong heroine in Harper and pairing her with a sexy Cajun that is powerful in his own right and made it work. I loved everything about this couple. The resistance was expected of the theme of this story and never felt overdone. Remy, his Cajun accent and sex ...more
I have read several of Kate Meader's books, which I really enjoyed so I figured I would give this new series a try. I am glad to say that I am not dissapointed. This could also be because it's a book about hockey...and sports themed books are a weakness of mine...especially hockey and baseball :P
It's hard to go wrong with HOT hockeyplayers running around with their sticks :P
Harper and het two (estranged) sisters have inherited a (losing) hockey team, the Chicago Rebels, to be precise. There are ...more
I'm so excited to tell you all about IRRESISTIBLE YOU, the first book in my new hockey series, the Chicago Rebels. 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. First up is the oldest, Harper, who expected to rule outright and is none too pleased at having to share with the sisters she hardly knows. This ice queen need ...more
I'll always have a great time reading Kate Meader. Irresistible You was no exception. It was super fun, deliciously swoony and sexy, a little bit angsty and a lot heartfelt.
After a lifetime of trying to prove herself to her father and miserably failing in his eyes, it seems as though even in death her father is trying to frustrate her. Harper Chase has now co-inherited his nose-diving hockey team together with her two alienated half-sister ...more
Kate Meader has become a must-read author for me. I have enjoyed every one of her stories and this one is another great example.
When we read a synopsis that the story is going to be about hockey, I get some immediate assumptions running through my mind. Slutty guy jocks and a chick who tames one. But this one is so very different. While there is nothing wrong with a slutty guy jock.... I am sometimes looking f ...more
Why did it take me this long to read a Kate Meader book?
I seriously would like to know because this book is my jam. And if her books are all like this -- you know, well-plotted with well written complex characters -- then I see a binge in my future and another author added to my automatic one-click list.
Irresistible You reminds me of all the good things I loved about Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Chicago Stars series, especially the first book, It Had to be You. It follows more or less ...more
How do you rate a book that you thought was just OK throughout most of it but loved the ending?
Well, this little ducky is pretty easy to please. If I'm left with a big goofy smile at the end, you've pretty much sold me.
I think, in this case, I just wanted the heroine and hero to WAKE THE HELL UP...and accept that love is better than a hockey puck.
I think that's the endgame in the book world, well, the romance book world. We're supposed to push aside career goal ...more
Irresistible You is a lighthearted, hockey romance featuring the delicious Cajun, Remy who finds himself traded to a losing team just as he's thinking about retirement, and the ballsy, competent Harper who finally has the career she's always wanted but with some unexpected strings attached.
The writing is effortless. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are fun, intriguing, and downright swoon-worthy. And the plot is an engaging mix of genu ...more
Kate Meader’s writing style is very meaty and very descriptive. I tend to enjoy more informal, faster pace and more dialogued based books. It’s not ...more
I can always count on Kate Meader to deliver fun and sexy contemporary romances, and she has yet to disappoint me. This time, she’s moved from hot firefighters to gorgeous hockey players in the Chicago Rebels series. You have no idea how excited I was when I heard she’d be writing hockey romances – it’s been a while since I’ve read a good sports romance, so Irresistible You came at the perfect time! I ended up loving this book so much. A Cajun hockey playe ...more
And funny. And has all the feels. Yeah, saying I enjoyed this story is a complete understatement! This is the first in this new hockey series and it is off to an emotional start with Harper and Remy entering a mine field…
“…she stood before him like a pissed-off toothpick.”
Harper and Remy had two very different goals which means they were off to a horrible start from the first time they meet. When neither wants to give up their position, the negotiations, and the fun, begins! Bot ...more
The opening gambit of this hockey romance novel is filled with irony when team owner Harper Chase tells her new, wayward center that he is a Rebel now and he has to play by her rules. Lucky for us the twist to that statement just gains speed like a puck slapped across the ice.
Harper Chase has been sitting it out on the bench, paying her dues in countless ways to her chauvinistic father, and with his untimely death she finally has a chance to run the family hocke ...more
First she had us ringing the alarm with her Hot In Chicago Series and now Kate Meader has readers in a frenzy with her latest winning hockey series, Chicago Rebels that is simply irresistible!!!!!
In this first installment, Irresistible You, Meader introduces readers to the Chase sisters. Harper, Isobel, and Violet are three estranged half-sisters who have inherited their father’s struggling NHL team. It is up to Harper as the oldest to ma ...more
Okay, so I didn't have super high expectations for IRRESISTIBLE YOU. I figured it would make a nice little palate cleanser in the form of sexy (maybe funny) hockey sports romance. Basically my favourite kind of low-angst high-fun contemporary. But then Meader made it, like, smart. And gave her characters self-aware, self-deprecating, self-sufficient personalities. And still managed to scorch my fingers from the steam and make me giggl ...more
Special release week price of $1.99. First in series!
Mon dieu….give me a minute while I turn down the air conditioning because this book is H-O-T! As a huge fan of Kate Meader’s work, I was excited about this new series after the novella, In Skates Trouble, but Irresistible You blew me away. An aging Cajun hockey player in search of The Cup and with the know how to pull a team together, and a smart, savvy, team owner trying to prove to her players, her co-owners who are also her half-si ...more
Another wonderful read by Kate Meader, I loved Irresistible You!
The writing is well done, the storyline entertaining all throughout the book, I loved all the characters and the role they played in making this such a great read.
Harper and Remy were wonderful characters who made me laugh, they made me swoon and they made me fall in love with them. They had amazing chemistry and watching them get their happily ever after left me full of happy feels.
Irresistible You is a wonderful addition ...more
I absolutely love this author’s scorching and emotion packed romances. I fell in love with her writing while reading and loving her Fire Fighters series her new sports romance series is proving to be another winner.
No man should look like that and be blessed with that panty-dropper voice. God’s quotas were definitely off with this guy.
I love strong heroines and I absolutely adored Harper. All her life she tried to prove herself worthy in her father’s eyes and always falling short. And now t...more
Funny, sexy and addictive, 'Irresistible You' is a great start to the Chicago Rebels series! The first book I've read by this author, I really enjoyed Kate Meader's voice and story-telling.
Remy (Jinx) DuPre is considered the unluckiest guy in the NHL. He's a star player who is down on his luck. He wants the Stanley Cup and this is his last year to get it. So when he's traded to a losing team, the Chicago Rebels, he's none too happy about it!
Harper Chase and her two sisters have just inherited t ...more
When I signed up for the ARC for the second book in the series, I vaguely remembered that I had Irresistible You somewhere on my kindle, so after a bit of searching on my jam-packed kindle
I found it, and promptly devoured this like the wickedly tasty treat that it is.
Now ask me why I delayed in reading this? Yep, no damn good reason other than it got lost in the shuffle of my ginormous TBR, aka the Mountain. Dude, I want to slap myself this was so good.
All the elements were clicking. I loved t ...more
Irresistible You showed a different aspect of hockey-teams and trades, and while it's not the first one I've read with female owners, it was one of the best! Good hockey, strong romance, and great character development.
After their father's death, three half-sisters who didn't know each other well inherited ownership of the Chicago Rebels hockey club. Harper had been working with the franchise for years, and she wanted the t ...more

Irresistible You is the first full book in Kate Meader’s new Chicago Rebel series (In Skates Trouble, book 0.5, originally released in the Hot On Ice anthology). As a huge fan of her previous Hot in Chicago books, I did a little happy dance when I heard she was writing a new sports romance series. Kate Meader’s dialogue combined with sports action? That’s my recipe for a good time. I have to admit, however, that it took me a little while t ...more
Harper is one of three heirs to the Chicago Rebels Hockey franchise. Harper had worked for her dad without much credit for her hard work and ability. The Rebels team had just acquired Remy in a trade in to bring the Rebels from 2nd to last place to the playoffs.
Harper has a rough task willed to her by her recently departed father. Fortunately, at the start of the book, Daddy ...more
