Dante Moretti has just landed his dream job: GM of the Chicago Rebels. And screw the haters who think there should be an asterisk next to his name because he’s the first out managing executive in pro hockey. He’s earned the right to be here and nothing will topple him off that perch—especially not an incredibly inconvenient attraction to his star defenseman, Cade “Alamo” B ...more

Carol [Goodreads Addict]

Undone By You is book #2.5 in the Chicago Rebels series by Kate Meader. Wow, I don’t know where to begin with this book. It’s about so much for than two people falling for each other. It’s about acceptance, love, family, commitment.

Tyler Seguin 12.23.14...oh hey, what cha doin down there? Take you time, we don't mind.

Cade “Alamo” Burnett is a defender for the Chicago Rebels, a professional hockey team. The Rebels had been in a slump for years but this year, with their three new owners, they are slowly rising in the ranks. Cade was raised in Texas by a father who believed that Tex

If you've read the previous book in the Chicago Rebels series you might have caught glimpses of Cade and Dante's strange connection. There seemed to have been something going on, chemistry, electricity and one scene toward the end of Isobel's book that looked like something akin to a fight. Now we get all the deets - UNDONE BY YOU runs parallel to SO OVER YOU.

I've always had a thing for the sharp, a little sardonic and reserved Dante Morrett

Cade Burnett was choosing to put himself out there, and Dante intended to reward him with the hottest experience of his life.

Sexy, emotional, and absolutely perfect! The first MM romance I've read from the uber talented Kate Meader and it was a HUGE winner!!

Dante is the GM of the Chicago Rebels hockey team. He's also ridiculously good looking, mostly grumpy and openly gay. When he runs into one of his star defenseman in a gay club, he's stunned. When the man he thought to be straight

An m/m novella in the Chicago Rebels series about the team's buttoned up, openly gay general manager and the defenseman who is out of bounds to him in every possible way. Boss/employee. Older/younger. Out/closeted.

So many complications, all of them delicious . . .

This series just keeps getting better and better. Cade and Dante’s story has been a long time coming and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

Cade Burnett was raised to be the stereotypical Texas man from the time he was knee high to a grasshopper. That sounds cheesy but just roll with me.

”You’re Texan, son. Here we worship big tits, a vengeful God, and the almighty pigskin.”

Cade’s natural affability and light hearted personality has served him well in the past. His relationship w

UNDONE BY YOU might be my favourite Chicago Rebels so far. Initially I was super bummed this was going to be a novella instead of a full-length but honestly it worked so well just the way it is.

They would start with pleasure, and hopefully it would never graduate to pain.

Loved the match-up, loved the chemistry, the bit of angst, the swoons, and aaaall the familiar faces.

I love all the boundaries that are being smashed in the Chicago Rebels series by Kate Meader.

We have three sisters that inherited a failing hockey league. Their father daring them in his death to beat the odds of making the team a success with impossible restrictions. Something even he, a former pro hockey player couldn't do.

All sisters are proving to the masses that women can be just as good in a male dominated sport. Add in players on the team that come from diversified backgrounds who each b

Wow! I don’t read a lot of M/M generally but I’m definitely open to it. I was totally hooked on Dante and Cade’s story. I loved the plot. It took a very sensitive issue and addressed it well. I loved the characters individually but they were even better as a couple. They complimented one another in different aspects of their lives, not just intimately. Though I will say that the intimacy itself was also scorching. 🔥

It takes a certain type of writer to be able to write romance between two men. A talent to where it becomes a beautiful thing instead of something crass and ugly. Meader is one of those authors that I trust to read this type of romance.

This book starts with a bang and never lets up. It took me a little bit to get back into the groove of the hockey team theme since it had been several months since the last installment. Thankfully, a few chapters i
Always able to make me smile, Kate Meader is a staple on my reading list so I jumped at the chance to read/review the next installment in her sizzling Chicago Rebels hockey romance series. Undone by You follows the team’s sexy, aloof and openly gay GM Dante Moretti and star defenseman Cade “Alamo” Burnett. Even though I’m don’t read m/m romance I truly enjoyed this story about friendship, love, understanding, family and having the valor to live life without regret.

an MM novella about Dante and Cade I was really looking forward to reading this one, but unfortunately I wasn’t the biggest fan… in the end I gave it 3 stars… it feels like just the beginning of their story and I wished it was longer to really show us how their relationship formed… Cade is I think 23 and Dante is 35 and I have to say it was just on the verge for me on being too big of an age difference, especially with where each of them is in their lives… also, I hated… HATED the term of endear ...more

Heartfelt, seductive and downright fervent!

Undone by You is an engrossing, passionate, sports romance that features the closeted, fun-loving Cade, and the handsome, mature Dante as they engage in a love affair strife with issues of age disparity, impropriety, hidden sexuality, and the stigma and stereotypical mentality surrounding professional sports.

The prose is titillating and sincere. The characters are well-drawn, appealing, and genuine. And the plot is a provocative tale full of explosive a

Sometimes you read a book that is just so amazing that it is hard to put into words how much you love it and that is exactly how I feel about Kate Meader’s Undone By You. I will say I had my suspicions in the previous two books about Cade “Alamo” Burnett and his possible love match and I’m so pleased I was right. A bit of a May-December gay romance between a star defenseman for the Chicago Rebels and the team’s General Manager made this an exciting, intoxicating, and sexy story. I loved every mi

MM so hot and sweet until Dante pushed Cade away at around 80% and his words were so mean, he needed to grovel. It kinda pissed me off and I almost gave this a lower score.

Heart squeezing, sexy romance…

Cue the gushing, as it’s going to continue! This hockey romance series has offered family, passion, desire and sheer humanity all the way along and Dante and Cade provide more. Their characters have been intertwined in the Chase family stories and I couldn’t wait to finally, finally, hear theirs….

“No-holds-barred, pure, unadulterated pleasure.”

Dante is the new-ish GM of the Chicago Rebels hockey team and he is helping to make this last in the standings a playoff

I am loving this series by Kate Meader. I was delighted to find out that this third book in the series was about Cade and Dante, two characters I’ve grown very fond of over the past two books. I don’t usually go gaga over novellas. I often find them to be unsatisfying, but Kate Meader knocked it off the park.

Dante and Cade could not be more different from each other, but boy did they make a great pair. I loved the chemistry between the two, and watching them open up to each other and become clos

Meet Dante, and he was not easy to like.
(Cade is on the cover).

Ant first. But, he had a lot to lose. So I forgave.

As the blurb stated “Dante and Cade’s taboo affair heats up off the ice and their relationship gets more and more intense”

That about sums this book up. It was hot, hot, hot...a fan was needed.

This was a crefree easy read. Two sexy players who not who and what that what when it’s all said and done. Sometimes I had a hard time liking the MCs. But, in the end. I adored

Undone By You is the story of a professional hockey player and closeted gay and his boss, the first openly gay general manager in the NHL. At the beginning, Cade makes it clear he's only in it for the fun and doesn't want a relationship. He's used to impress with his sexual prowess so Dante's approach to get to know him unsettle him. But the more time Cade spend with the elegant GM, the more he seem to be ready to commit. And that's when the role are reversed. Dante is getting cold feet because ...more

Undone by You is the third book off of Kate Meader's Chicago Rebels series. I was looking forward to this book ever since we got a hint of Dante and Cade's relationship in So Over You. I enjoyed that book and the first book as well so I was expecting to love this book. And I loved Kate Meader. Her writing style and author voice is something that I thoroughly enjoyed in the past.

Loved Cade, wasn't always happy with Dante...
I don't read much M/M romance, but I love this series so it was a go.
Will there ever be a big name currently playing in one of the big four sports who 'comes out' while still actively playing? I don't know, but if he does, he better be prepared for a media onslaught.

The Good.
I’ve enjoyed the Chicago Rebels series, and Dante and Cade have been that teaser couple - you know, the one whose scenes aren’t the focal point of the story but capture your attention because you just want to know what’s happening off-page with them. I enjoyed how Ms. Meader has taken their love story and wove it into the overarching storyline of the sisters’ ownership of the team and their quest to win the Cup.

The Bad.

Dante Moretti is openly gay, and while the Chicago Rebels accept him, he keeps his private life, well,  private. While spending his Saturday evening at an invite-only private club where discretion is a requirement Dante spots the Chicago Rebels star defenseman Cade Burnett. Cade isn't openly gay, in fact, he is often seen with several ladies on his arm. The tale that unfolded was sweet, sizzling hot and touching as Cade dealt with many firsts.

Totally loving this hockey series. I can’t get enough of these sexy players. The more I read the more I want to get my hands on more. This author is quickly making the way up my favorites list.
Such a sweet and sexy romance between defenseman Cade “Alamo” and the hot and sexy Italian GM, Dante. Cade finally reveals his attraction to Dante and then has to work up the nerve to come out to his Dad. This was such an emotional and romantic story

This author just doesn't click for me, and I'm making quick decisions on books. Tired of my pile up on the TBR/R so I'm all about not wasting time.

The author's characters just do not seem to do it for me. Someone's going to have to give me an excellent reason to try her books again.

Gah! This series!


And this lovely little delight of Cade and Dante. Gah! All the feels! Little snippets in the previous books just made me desperate to know exactly what was going on between the player and the boss. And Kate Meader delivered and then some in this wonderful story of a man finding the courage to be himself and another man finally taking what he wants. Damn the consequences. Gah! Just yes, yes, yes.

I'm in love. I want a Dante for myself. I want a Cade for myself. But alas...they do
As the first openly gay general manager in the NHL, Dante has some ridiculously intense focus and negativity to deal with, but he does so with unflappable grace and calm. Nothing much seems to ruffle his feathers, except for an unexpected attraction to one of the team players who can’t be...or is he?

Cade decides to come clean and let Dante know he’s definitely interested and more than attracted to the sexy Italian. He’s kept his sexuality under wraps for years not wanting to rock the family boat

One of my favorites from the series, and it's a novella! Dante and Cade are so swoon-worthy together. The smiling Texan, and the broody Italian. Like, sign me the fuck up.
