HOOKED ON YOU by Kate Meader is the fourth book in The
series about the three sisters who inherit a hockey team
that they have to run together. The two older sisters knew
their father and grew up with him. The younger sister
never met her father. So, not only does she have to get used
to living in a new environment, but she also has to become
familiar with two half-sisters.
This is the story I have
been looking forward to reading because Violet is fiery,
sassy, and says exactly what she's thinking. Bren is gruff
and doesn't want to be bothered. It is a fun read, but it
deals with the serious reality of cancer and the physical, as
well as the psychological and emotional, effects. There is also
a lesson in how alcoholism touches so many avenues in a
person's life. This series showed how alcoholism nearly
destroyed the team. It nearly destroyed that team member
and his family. The
Chicago Rebels is a great series about team members
and family being there providing moral support and tough
love when needed.
Violet Vasquez never met her father, but she is in a
precarious place at the moment. So when she learns that her
father has left his beloved hockey team to her and her two
half-sisters she decides to make the best of an unexpected
opportunity. She has no interest in overseeing a bunch of
hockey players but changes her mind when she lays eyes on
the captain of the hockey team.
Bren St. James is working hard to get his life and career
back on track after alcohol almost destroyed it. With the
help of his team he is heading in the right direction with
his career. But more than anything Bren wants and needs to
rebuild his relationship with his two daughters. The last
thing he needs right now is to become involved in a
relationship. But avoiding sexy, feisty Violet is more than
he can control.
This is a great story about two lost souls. Even though
Violet tries to appear like she has no worries, a health
scare shows just how vulnerable she is. Bren knows that
alcohol will always be an issue for him. He still has guilt
over how low his drinking took him and worries how it will
affect his relationship with his daughters. These are two
personalities that turn out to be just what they each need.
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.
