Audio Review: Irresistible you - Kate Meader

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem, a chip on his shoulder, and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.

Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?

He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…

Contemporary romance
I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

My thoughts:
Oh I really enjoyed listening to this one on audio. Like really liked it. At the end I had this goofy grin on my face. Before that shocked, giggly,oh you know it, I am glad I did not meet anyone, I must have looked so silly through out this entire book.

It is just something about sports romance, and hey hockey is always good. So I dove straight into this one.

Harper has a lot to prove, to herself, to her dead father, to the world. A woman CAN run a sports franchise.  A woman is not controlled by her emotions. She was strong, yet vulnerable. Way too stubborn when it comes to love and I just liked her.

In comes Remy. The one who will save this crap team from going under. And the one that can break her reputation since he is OH so fine and those sparks will put the world on fire.

I did like the do not go there thing, it was bad news in so many ways. But they were SO good together. He was so sweet, and I melted. I must say, Pippa sure made his voice sound fine too. I totally forgot it was a woman narrating that voice.

Conclusion:
I would love to listen to more in this series. Awesome.

Narrator Pippa Jayne
Well the credit in s many ways must certainly go to her. For me personally she brought it to another level. I needed more from these two. I needed to know how it ended. I liked her voices for both and they fitted so perfectly. I am pretty sure this one worked so much better in audio for me. Sports romance in audio rocks.

  3. Sports romances are always fun. Especially when they are hockey based. Audiobooks are hit or miss with me, but I will have to see if my library has a copy of this.
