Hooked on You

Chicago Rebels, #4
Publication Date: May 7, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Sports Romance, Standalone



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 of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.

Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander…but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.

For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.


Review by Susan:

This is the third book in the series but I feel it could be read as a standalone, though I suggest you read the whole series as it’s fab. This story follows Violet and Bren, Violet is the free spirited sister, who is still trying to find her way and to fit in. Bren is the brooding Scot, an alcoholic and clinging to his career by a thread. He is giving a second chance with the team and he is determined not to cock it up, getting custody of his two daughters at the beginning of the playoffs throws a spanner in the works, but with a little help he’s determined to succeed. Having to accept help from the sarky, sassy Violet who takes great pleasure in teasing him any chance she gets might be a stretch to far, but what happens when they are thrown together? Will they be able to keep their hands off each other? You will have to read to find out!

I enjoyed this book, I read it in one sitting, it was a funny, sweet, hot and sexy read. Violet wasn’t my favorite sister but over the course of this book I grew to like her. I loved the witty banter between her and Bren, it made me laugh out loud a few times. We get to meet up with couples from the previous books and some of my favorite backgrounds characters. I loved getting to see their relationship blossom and over time a romance bloom, this was the perfect end to a fab series, sad it’s all over.  4 Stars
