Story Overview:
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?

My Review:
I need to shout it from the rooftop...I adore this series, but adding this book into the series, has simply made it perfection. I'm so, so, so happy that Cade and Dante got their own book because they have a fantastic story. 

Dante is the first openly gay person in the NHL. He's the GM for the Rebels. What he doesn't realize is that one of his players is gay, too. Cade has been one of the main characters on the team from the very beginning. He's young and extremely talented. He also has a great personality that helps to keep the team together and functioning as a unit. But anyway, when Cade approaches Dante in a gay club, Dante doesn't know exactly what to do...council the guy on how to come out in the NHL or do what he really wants...put Cade on his knees. Yeah, this book is all kinds of sexy. 

My heart wept for both these guys. Dante has fought for years to be out and accepted, so the idea of going back in the closet is not acceptable. But Cade isn't ready to come out of the closet. And that's just the issues with being gay and out. They also have the difficulty that technically, Dante is Cade's boss...not a good mix for a new relationship. BUT these two guys are so, so good together and for each other. I loved them together. Watching their relationship develop was gorgeous reading. I absolutely fell in love with both of them...and felt for both of them and the struggles they are facing. 

Overall, this book was a FANTASTIC addition to a series that I've already loved. My hope now is that this one will come out in print, too...I need the WHOLE series in print and in its treasured place on my keeper shelf. 

Note...there's only one more book to come and I'm almost sad for it to come out. I'm not ready for this series to end yet.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
