    So Over You is book two in the Chicago Rebels series by Kate Meader. Gosh I love this series. With every book I fall more and more in love with these three sisters and the Chicago Rebels.

    Isobel Chase is the middle sister. One might think she had the best relationship with their late father. But in reality, Isobel spent her life trying to please the man who she could never really make happy. He had wanted a son. When he didn’t get one, Isobel was his chance at having a hockey star for a child. She was primed for stardom from an early age and she was great. But in her very first professional game, she suffered a traumatic injury ending her professional career. Now her father is gone and she and her two sisters have one season to try to get the Chicago Rebels back on track. If they don’t make the play offs, the team will be sold. Isobel is acting as a coach, giving individual attention to the players that need it. Her first real assignment is to help get their newest acquisition back on the ice after his own injury. Only she has a history with this particular player.

    Vadim Petrov is finally in the USA playing for the NHL. It’s what he’s always wanted. But when a knee injury sidelines him, he finds himself traded to the worst team in the league, the Chicago Rebels. And who is his personal coach but Isobel Chase. Eight years ago, when Isobel was eighteen and he was nineteen, he was able to practice with the Rebels for a summer and met Isobel. They flirted all summer and he fell in love. But after their one time together, Isobel’s father had him sent back to Russia. And now to hear Isobel talk about it, it seems their one time together was not very fulfilling for her. It had been her first time and much to his astonishment; it had not been good for her. So now here he is years later with a lot more experience. It is his duty to make up for her disappointment. To show her how good it can be. Because proving to Isobel that he can do better suddenly becomes the most important thing he needs to accomplish.

    As part owner and coach, Isobel can’t be in any kind of relationship with any of the players, especially the one she is supposed to be coaching. But that same attraction that brought them together eight years ago is still there and it’s too strong to deny. Vadim is determined to make up for his previous shortcomings and who is she to deny him? Just once, right? They’ll scratch their itch and get it out of their systems. But they just can’t seem to stay away from each other.

    As Vadim struggles with some family issues and Isobel struggles with what her place in the organization is, they also struggle with their feelings for each other. Vadim is described as a six foot five inches Russian hunk of swoon. And let me assure you, you will most definitely swoon.

    I loved this book. Kate Meader seems to have the perfect combination of sweet, sexy, humor and a touch of angst. Her characters never fail to steal my heart. The next book in the series is #2.5, Undone By You, which is Dante and Cade’s book. I have already read it and it is fantastic. Book three, Hooked On You, is the youngest sister, Violet’s story and it is up next for me. I can’t wait to dive in.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
