Hooked On You (Chicago Rebels #3) Reviews
I could say so many things about this book. But I'm just going to put this here :
I ended cutting short sunday family lunch under false pretense just so I could go back to Bren and Violet in "Hooked on You".
I felt ashamed for like two minutes, then resumed my reading in my favorite corner on the couch, coffee in hand, knowing I'd get whatever scraps of dessert I'd skipped earlier anyways.
And I was at that point in the book when this troubled, brooding, bearded half Scot ...more
Kate Meader’s writing is always one that I look out for. There’s quirk, some humour and sometimes cheese, but it never fails to entertain. ‘Hooked On You’ closes Meader’s Chicago Rebels series and having come fresh off the scorching push-pull relationship of Cade/Dante, I really wasn’t sure what to expect with Violet/Bren’s story, even though this pairing had been hinted at from the very beginning.
A burly, surly Scot in trouble on so many fronts and a plucky, somewhat abrasive and determined-to- ...more
Violet Vasquez, the third daughter of Clifford Chase, deceased father and all around not so great guy, left her a third stake in the Chicago Rebels hockey team. Having survived breast cancer, this is the Year of the V. And she’s bound and determined to live it up. Then she meets Bren St. James, captain of the Chicago Rebels, and her employee. Sparks fly but Bren isn’t in any position to fan them - he’s too busy trying to stay sober and get his daughters back. His coming up on his 1 year of sobri ...more
I was so happy to get an ARC for this one. I was turned down for the novella "Undone By You" ( I borrowed that one through Overdrive).
I loved Violet and Bren's story.
Violet is very assertive on the outside & vulnerable on the inside. She never met her dad Clifford. She's the youngest of the 3 sisters. Her mom had a one night stand- who was never in a relationship with Clifford.
As explained in the very beginning of book 1 (Harper's book), Daddy Clifford was a serial cheater.
Violet, Harper ...more

I shed a lot of tears reading Hooked On You; tears for Bren St. James, a recovering alcoholic trying to lead his team to the Stanley Cup and reconnect with his two young daughters, tears for Violet Vasquez, a cancer survivor trying to figure out her place in the world while connecting with her half sisters while running a professional hockey team, tears for two young girls trying to understand why their life has been uprooted again, and tears because I knew this was the last book in this series ...more
A girl walk into a bar... during a bar fight. That's how it begin for Violet Vasquez, a breast cancer survivor and Bren St-James, hockey player and alcoholic. Not really in a good place in his life at the time, while Violet is set on celebrating her new life, things get off on a bad start for the two of them but finally it will be a good thing because soon afterward, the young woman realize he's one of her employee, in some ways.
Even if Violet inherited a part of a NHL franchise with her tw ...more
