[Review] Hooked on You by Kate Meader

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.

I know nothing about sport, but I love me a sport inspired book!
Book 3 is the first I've read in the series and can safely say you can read it as a standalone. I understood the previous plots as much as I need to ←but I may need to download them to test my theory.
The story follows two people who like to irritate and glare at each other, my fav kind. They're plopped together when unforeseen circumstances enter Bren's world for the better AKA, his girls.
Time to step up and prove that the past is in the past and he's a better man.
However with the Rebels so close to winning the championship, carting two kids around isn't ideal, and who worse than Violet to be the nanny?
The third wheel in the family. Third owner of the Rebels, and Bren.
Violet herself hasn't had an easy life so far. However I admire her ability to pick up and carry on. She's positive and bright, even in the pages.
God these two can melt pages too.
They're on fire.
They're falling.
and you wonder if they'll actually work themselves out.
I had so much hope though, especially if kids can warm to something new, surely they can to? There may be bumps in the road, but that just makes the story interesting.
Aye, Lass. I Loves this book!
