USA TODAY bestselling author Kate Meader brings her signature “steamy sex scenes, colorful characters, and riveting dialogue” (RT Book Reviews) to this novella in the Chicago Rebels series, following the general manager of the Rebels as he scores with one of his players off the ice.
Dante Moretti has just landed his dream job: GM of the Chicago Rebels. And screw the haters who think there should be an asterisk next to his name because he’s the first out managing executive in pro hockey. He’s earned the right to be here and nothing will topple him off that perch—especially not an incredibly inconvenient attraction to his star defenseman, Cade “Alamo” Burnett. Cade has always been careful to keep his own desires on the down low, but his hot Italian boss proves to be a temptation he can’t resist. Sure, they both have so much to lose, but no one will ever know...
As Dante and Cade’s taboo affair heats up off the ice and their relationship gets more and more intense, they’ll have to decide: is love worth risking their careers? Or is this romance destined to be forever benched?
In Undone By You we have a story that is sensual and mind provoking in this tale of forbidden love between a hockey player and his boss, the manager of the team. Their relationship holds all sort of complex issues that neither of them may be ready for.
In this sizzling tale of sexy lovin’ between these two diverse key players:
- Dante Moretti, an italian, with an talent as a chef, just landed his dream job and came “out of the closet” to the public years ago.
- Cade Burnett, is the star defenseman on the hockey team, is texan and still hides who he is from the public.
It has been quite a while since I have picked up a MM romance and man I fell for this one so hard. Kate Meader has always been the author that just pulls me into a story and can make a MM romance sexy as all get out. I love the way she writes these pairings and Undone By You was so well written here. I really liked the whole “forbidden love” element. Now it is a bit different. Because we see some complex issues rise up in their relationship. We have two great heroes that both on their own are beyond SEX ON A STICK, and man they just curled my toes. From our a bit older Italian raised hero who can cook homemade pasta??!!! YEP YEP sign me up for that one. Then we have the charming hockey player who is talented and sure of himself but still suffers from some vulnerabilities and fear from letting his father know that he perfers men over women. I really enjoyed seeing Cade come into himself more, and realize that he doesn’t want to hide who he is anymore and to fight for the man he loves.
This was a shorter story but not too short that we feel a lack of character growth, there is actually quite a bit of strong focus of the element in this book. The chemistry is sizzling and the emotional aspects just pulls you into further with this couple and leaves you wanting more.
