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 o

Hooked On You is the third and final book in the Chicago Rebels series by Kate Meader. My oh my oh my. This book! It is fantastic! I have loved this series from the start but this book…it’s the best of the batch! I had so many butterflies in my stomach from Bren St. James it’s a wonder I didn’t take flight myself. That man could melt the biggest glacier with his hotness. Well, let’s just get into this review so I can tell you all about it.

Hockey!

If he could resist a drink, he could certainly resist the charms of Violet Vasquez. Siren. Temptress. His daughters’ primary caregiver.


This was definitely, hands down, my favorite book in the series. As soon as the grumpy Scot came on the scene, I've been salivating for his book. And it just doesn't get better than pairing him with a sassy and smart-mouthed Latina that doesn't take any of his broodiness. Man. I was in banter heaven.
Violet’s attention was a fresh slice

Sweet, romantic, and satisfying!

Hooked on You is a fervent, bittersweet tale that brings together the broody, guilt-ridden Bren, and the feisty, fun-loving Violet as they both discover that some things are worth fighting for and together they can overcome any baggage from their pasts.

The prose is emotive and smooth. The characters are hesitant, dependable, and affable. And the plot is an alluring mix of compassion, patience, attraction, friendship, addiction, parenthood, familial drama, hockey,

Wanted:
Grumpy, bearded Scot, recovering alcoholic hockey player needs a nanny for his two adorable daughters, aka the nearest and dearest people to his heart. Smart mouths and sex sirens need not apply.


Bren's and Violet's story! These two have been slow-burning their way through the previous Rebels books and their time has come. Can their overwhelming attraction to each other survive the playoffs, their pasts, and the meddling of an entire pro hockey franchise? Let the games begin!

YOU GUYS.
I could say so many things about this book. But I'm just going to put this here :
I ended cutting short sunday family lunch under false pretense just so I could go back to Bren and Violet in "Hooked on You".
I felt ashamed for like two minutes, then resumed my reading in my favorite corner on the couch, coffee in hand, knowing I'd get whatever scraps of dessert I'd skipped earlier anyways.
And I was at that point in the book when this troubled, brooding, bearded

This is the third book in the series and so it's time for the last sister to get her man ;)

This series is about three sisters, who inherited a hockey team together, when their father died... This book is about Violet, who is the youngest sister. Violet is the result of a one night stand, and even though her father knew she excisted, he never showed any interest in her. Until he died that is.

This book had so much emotion tied to it. It makes us realize that not everyone is as they seem on the outside. We all have hurt and emotion of some sort tied up inside. And sometimes that makes us act a certain way. Maybe people don’t understand us or we try and push them away… That is Bren and Violet.

The author did a wonderful job on this story. She brought together two people that seem to be complete opposite‘s and tied them together in a way that grew the

I’ve been enjoying Kate Meader’s Chicago Rebels series. These hockey skaters were so passionate on and off the ice, and just plain hot!

Violet was a little different from the other two Chase sisters in that she wasn’t outwardly acknowledged until after the death of Clifford Chase, she wasn’t raised in a life of privilege, and she was not involved with hockey until her father died and left a third of the team to her. Clifford really treated Violet the worst, IMO, because he never tried t

With the last entry of her Chicago Rebels series, Kate Meader delivers a steamy, sweet and heartfelt of a recovering alcoholic looking for redemption and a woman with a second chance at living who brought light to his life.

A fabulous ending to what has become a favorite series of mine. Bren and Violet have been tap dancing around each other since the beginning and their inevitable hookup scorches the pages. Violet is hilarious, her jokes and one liners kept me laughing. There are a lot of layers here, besides the hotness of which is Bren and Violet. We get Bren and his attempt to salvage his relationship with his daughters. His bitch of an ex wife threatening to ruin it all. Violet and her relationship with her s ...more

I was so happy to get an ARC for this one. I was turned down for the novella "Undone By You" ( I borrowed that one through Overdrive).
I loved Violet and Bren's story.
Violet is very assertive on the outside & vulnerable on the inside. She never met her dad Clifford. She's the youngest of the 3 sisters. Her mom had a one night stand- who was never in a relationship with Clifford.
As explained in the very beginning of book 1 (Harper's book), Daddy Clifford was a serial cheater.

Amazing covers, amazing series…

Whew… I knew when I first spotted the book covers that underneath was going to be something beautiful. Each story built on the next – a family built around hockey, a group of characters brought together through sport, friendship and some lucky ones, love. There was dysfunction and pain, laughter and tears and above all, love. This was the final story so reading Violet and Bren’s story was bittersweet…

Kate Meader’s writing is always one that I look out for. There’s quirk, some humour and sometimes cheese, but it never fails to entertain. ‘Hooked On You’ closes Meader’s Chicago Rebels series and having come fresh off the scorching push-pull relationship of Cade/Dante, I really wasn’t sure what to expect with Violet/Bren’s story, even though this pairing had been hinted at from the very beginning.

A burly, surly Scot in trouble on so many fronts and a plucky, somewhat abrasive and determined-to-

Mindy Lou's Book Review
I've been waiting very patiently for this book just to get me some more of Bren. When Kate Meader introduced him in book one as big, broody and a Jason Mamoa look alike...I was sold and he did not disappoint. Add in him being such a great dad to two little girls, well lets just say there will be many hearts falling for this guy.

As much as I like to dedicate my whole review to Bren, Violet held her own against him. You learned in previous books that she survived breast cancer but we only got to

I loved this book and series! So sad it's over. Kate Meader's writing and storytelling really work for me, and this book was no different. Really enjoyed the sexual tension between Bren and Violet. I enjoyed how they were so different yet such a terrific balance for each other. And when they got together, it was super sexy!

I also loved the relationship between the sisters and how that played out in this book, and I also enjoyed how the whole "Rebels Family" came together to support everyone at

This is the final book in the series and Bren and Violet’s story.

Bren begins as a surly, gruff, moody, keep to himself person, who is also the Captain of the Chicago Rebel hockey team. He is a recovering alcoholic, divorced and dad of 2 young girls. His life is in chaos dealing with his recovery, his ex-wife, fighting for full custody of his two girls and trying to lead his team to a championship.

BUT this was such a great ending to all of their stories, and I'm so happy we got to follow along on Bren and Violet's journey.

Hooked On You by Kate Meader was such a good read.
The storyline was entertaining, the characters were likable, engaging and my interest was captured from the first page until the end.

I loved Violet and Bren, they made me laugh and swoon and their story touched my heart.
These two had painful pasts and with each others love and support they were able to find peace and acceptance. They truly belonged together.

The Chicago Rebels series has been solid from start to finish, with a sustained quality of story telling so that it makes me rather sad that this has now come to the end. I have anticipated the couple in this series right from book one, as I am sure many others have done. Bren, the big, gorgeous grumpy lump of Scot was more than promised and Violet his opposite in so many ways.

HOOKED ON YOU has a continued family focus in terms of the sisterhood inheriting this team but also in terms of Bren's k

This is the fourth in an existing series but I haven’t read anything else in the series (although I plan to). I don’t think I missed anything. It read like a stand alone. I loved the characters here - Violet was delightfully quirky and Bren was a brooding hero with lots of baggage. Their relationship is fascinating since they seem to really balance each other out. I loved the family pieces which gave the reader a different perspective on Bren throughout the novel. Although there is lots of hocke ...more

A girl walk into a bar... during a bar fight. That's how it begin for Violet Vasquez, a breast cancer survivor and Bren St-James, hockey player and alcoholic. Not really in a good place in his life at the time, while Violet is set on celebrating her new life, things get off on a bad start for the two of them but finally it will be a good thing because soon afterward, the young woman realize he's one of her employee, in some ways.

I love the series and Hooked on you is no exception. Bren and Violet were struggling emotionally and both vulnerable but couldn't resist each other.
They were able to concur their demons and fight for love.
I though the author did a great job dealing with the blended families both with Harper and his daughters.

I am so in love with this series. Kate Meader has truly outdone herself with the Chicago Rebels series. I love that I can always count on her to deliver a wildly romantic and steamy story with a whole lot of heart. Hooked on You was no different.

I think out of all the books, this one was my most anticipated. No, it wasn't just because of Bren's single dad status. We got to see the tension between Violet and Bren simmer over the last couple of books and it has been glorious. Here they finally get

My heart is so ridiculously happy. I loved Violet and Bren's story, they're the perfect match of opposites attract and I couldn't get enough of their heartfelt, sexy ride!

Violet and Bren were like fire and ice and I loved the animosity and tension between them. There was an excellent push and pull happening and I enjoyed their playful banter and snarky comments. Violet was such a wonderful person, so sweet and caring. I freaking loved Bren! I loved his grumpy attitude and how hard he was working
