About the Author
Originally from Ireland, Kate Meader cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Harlequins thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron, a fire hose, or a hockey stick, and she's there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines (and heroes) who can match their men quip for quip. Visit her at KateMeader.com.

SOME BACKGROUND: Upon their father’s death, estranged sisters Harper Chase, Isobel Chase and Violet Vasquez inherited the ownership of the struggling NHL hockey franchise-the Chicago Rebels. With only months remaining in the current season, the sisters are tasked with turning the team into a play-off bound franchise or risk loosing everything, including their father’s legacy, one piece at a time.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Isobel and Vadim) SO OVER YOU follows the second chance relationship between Chicago Rebels injured left-winger Vadim Petrov, and co-owner/skating consultant Isobel Chase, NCAA star, Olympic hockey silver medalist, and former player in the National Women’s Hockey League-thirty seven minutes that would break more than her spirit and end her career. Several years earlier, Vadim Petrov was on the verge of making a name for himself in the NHL when Isobel’s father destroyed any hopes, for our hero, for the foreseeable future including breaking the bonds between Vadim and the woman with whom he would fall in love. Fast forward to present day wherein an injured Vadim Petrov will come face to face with his past when he is traded to the embattled Chicago Rebels. What ensues is the back and forth, sexually palpable antagonistic relationship between Isobel and Vadim, as Isobel begins coaching our hero back to the star she knows he can be, and the potential fall out when Isobel battles between her head and her heart, and the man that she loves, as she endeavours to return to the game in the hopes of the elusive gold medal.
We are up close and personal as Vadim battles his own preconceived notions about the mother he believes all but abandoned her only son. With his younger sister’s burgeoning skills as an elite hockey player herself, Vadim becomes the over protective Russian bear as it pertains to the two most important women in his life-Isabel Chase and his sister Mia Wallace. The Chase fractured family dynamics begin to heal as the sisters forge together to ensure the Chicago Rebels continue their upward flight on a path bound towards the hockey playoff rounds.
The relationship between Vadim and Isobel is one of second chances; a rekindling romance between two people whose relationship was destroyed by a man whose sole focus was on the game that he loved-a game that would come between a father and the daughters he cared little about. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Isobel’s sisters Harper Chase and her boyfriend Remy Dupre (Irresistible You #1), Violet Vasquez; Vadim’s sister Mia Wallace, and their mother Victoria Wallace, Vadim’s personnel assistant Alexei Medvedev; team GM Dante Moretti, defenseman Cade Burnett, Rebels captain Bren St. James, head-trainer Kelly Townsend, and left-winger Leon Shay.
SO OVER YOU has moments of humor and fun; betrayal and revenge; romance and love. The premise is engaging and entertaining; the romance is passionate and seductive; the characters are energetic, dynamic and charismatic. SO OVER YOU is a story of family, friendship, forgiveness and forever.
Harper was not the only Chase sister who tried and failed to prove herself to her hockey super star father. Middle daughter Isobel, was the son their father never had. The one who’d continue his legacy, but thirty-seven minutes into her first NWHL game a devastating injury ruined her dreams. There’s always plan B. She can still get a coaching job with her late father’s hockey team, she just has to prove herself. The only problem is that the man she needs to train is the one she long ago threw herself at as an infatuated teenager and right after they did the deed, her father banished him to the other side of the world.
He should hate her. She’s the reason why his NHL career took too many turns to reach. Many years have passed since Vadim had chased after Isobel though, and the Czar a Pleasure wants for nothing. He has fame, fortune, women who fawn over him. But a knee injury has led him straight into to the hands of Isobel Chase, co-owner of his new team the Chicago Rebels, his personal coach for the foreseeable future, and the only woman he’s ever loved. Can he convince to give them a second chance?
Sparks fly and the fun starts as soon as Vadim and Isobel reconnect. The attraction between the two is undeniable but it’s their initial reluctance to admit it that hooked me and the fact that Vadim is itching to rectify the fact that he failed in his manly duties to satisfy Isobel his one time with her all those years ago. I loved the push and pull between Vadim and Isobel, with his domineering personality and her very assertive one, they were sure to create delicious friction. They both needed to work on their relationship skills, since neither had any experience in the arena but I was a big fan of the couple whose heart and souls were destined to be together.
One of the things that made me smile with each page was Vadim’s laser focus on Isobel and his brooding, dominant, Russian ways. It was both infuriating to her and completely endearing, and comical as all get out. He just couldn’t help himself and it’s obvious it comes from his deep love for Isobel and it makes his alpha maleness sizzling and swoony.
Isobel is not just a talented athlete, she’s a powerful franchise owner but you would never know if from getting to know her. She never abuses her influence nor shoves her athletic credentials in your face. She’s just a normal, sometimes too stubborn for her own good, woman wanting to find her place with her sisters, career and man. I really enjoyed the banter and growing friendship between the sisters.
So Over You is book #2 of the Chicago Rebels series by Kate Meader. It is a standalone contemporary hockey romance. It is also a second chance romance with a fast pace told from both points of view and has a happy ending.
