“I love the stereotypes and prejudices against women and how it was overcome by the ladies in this series.” ~ Under the Covers
Though I am a romance reader through and through, I have to say that lately, sexy reads have not been the top choice for me only because some “sexy” scenes have been repetitive or very similar, and lately, not many have captured my attention. But because I have loved Kate Meader books before including this series, I wasn’t about to pass up on it. I’m happy to say, that Meader did not disappoint. Yes, this book was a sexy read and despite my reservations, Meader captured my attention throughout the book.
This second installment is about Isobelle, the ex-pro hockey sister who is now one of the coaches of the team. She gets a chance at working with an athlete who she had a fling with years back. The struggle isn’t really with his refusal to work with her but the fight to be recognized as who she is and what she is worth. Yes, she is part owner of this team, but she is also a well qualified coach and damn good hockey player (before her accident). It will take all her effort to keep her status, but also a little help from Vadim to realize what already has in her life.
I love that Meader takes the time to give a realistic female role in her books. I love the stereotypes and prejudices against women and how it was overcome by the ladies in this series. Meader also stays consistent in terms of the right amount of sexy but not in the least redundant or typical. There was some humor and cuteness but not overwhelming and the drama wasn’t over done. Only thing I wasn’t too fond of is that Vadim’s face came to me as Rocky’s Russian opponent in Rocky V. I have know idea why. I had to force it out of my mind and remember the book cover which obviously did the trick.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
