Three estranged sisters struggle to sustain their late father’s failing hockey franchise in Kate Meader’s sizzling Chicago Rebels series. In this second entry, middle sister Isobel is at a crossroads in her personal and professional lives. But both are about to get a significant boost with the addition of a domineering Russian powerhouse to the Rebels….

Isobel Chase knows hockey. She played NCAA, won Olympic silver, and made it thirty-seven minutes into the new National Women’s Hockey League before an injury sidelined her dreams. Those who can’t, coach, and a position as a skating consultant to her late father’s hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels, seems like a perfect fit. Until she’s assigned her first job: the man who skated into her heart as a teen and relieved her of her pesky virginity. These days, left-winger Vadim Petrov is known as the Czar of Pleasure, a magnet for puck bunnies and the tabloids alike. But back then… let’s just say his inability to sink the puck left Isobel frustratingly scoreless.

Vadim has a first name that means “ruler,” and it doesn’t stop at his birth certificate. He dominates on the ice, the practice rink, and in the backseat of a limo. But a knee injury has produced a bad year, and bad years in the NHL don’t go unrewarded. His penance? To be traded to a troubled team where his personal coach is Isobel Chase, the woman who drove him wild years ago when they were hormonal teens. But apparently the feeling was not entirely mutual.

That Vadim might have failed to give Isobel the pleasure that was her right is intolerable, and he plans to make it up to her—one bone-melting orgasm at a time. After all, no player can perfect his game without a helluva lot of practice…

So Over You is the second chance love story of Isobel Chase and Vadim Petrov.  The two first met as teens and shared a love of hockey.  They also shared “firsts”.  Isobel was/is Vadim’s first true love.  Vadim was Isobel’s first romantic encounter.  Too bad the encounter didn’t have Isobel seeing stars, but wondering “is this it?”.

Now Isobel runs Chicago’s pro-hockey team, the Chicago Rebels with her two half sisters.  According to their father’s will, they must take the team to the playoffs this current season or the team will be sold to someone else.  To make the struggling team better, Isobel’s older sister, Harper negotiates to bring in left-winger Vadim Petrov, not knowing the two have a history.

Isobel is tasked with coaching Vadim and helping him recover from an injury, much to his displeasure.  She wants to keep things professional and their past a secret.  But their past soon becomes known by certain members of the team and that Vadim “the Czar of Pleasure” fell very short.  Upon learning of his failure, Vadim becomes determined to make Isobel remember him for something else.

I loved Isobel and Vadim together.  They’re fun and passionate.  They don’t pull any punches with each other.  Each have had a very complicated relationship with their parents.  But together they are able to make new discoveries about themselves and each other.  The Chicago Rebels series is all about coming together and being a family.  You definitely see that on full display with So Over You.  Kate Meader writes stories full of humor and passion that pulls you in and So Over You is no different.  I’m looking forward to the remaining books in this series.
