Theo Kershaw is the luckiest guy alive.

Roaring back from a life-threatening injury, he has the world at his skates as defenseman for his new team, the Chicago Rebels. Everyone adores his big personality, his on-ice talent, and his killer smile. Everyone but his prickly neighbor--or so he thinks. One chilly Christmas Eve, Theo will learn that maybe the girl next door isn't such a hater after all ...

Elle Butler is the most embarrassing person on the planet.

How else can the ex-military-now-bartender explain her crush on the hot jock who lives across the hall? True, he has gorgeous green eyes and perfect cheekbones, but the filter between his brain and too-sexy mouth is permanently malfunctioning. Yet she can't stop checking out his Instagram antics or sneaking looks at him when he's in her bar. Absolutely mortifying. Running from a past filled with damning secrets, Elle's determined that this guilty pleasure remains buried in her deepest fantasies.

Because she couldn't possibly indulge with the Theo Kershaw. Or make a mistake that draws attention to her under-the-radar life. And she especially couldn't be a mom to a pro-athlete's baby ... could she?


With INSTACRUSH, the second book in her Rookie Rebels series Kate Meader delights us once again with a story of finding love when you least expect it. As an added bonus we got some heart squeezing updates on some of our favs from the original Chicago Rebels series.

Elle intrigued us in the first book in the series when she showed up at her Army buddy turned pro hockey player Levi’s house needing a place to crash for awhile. Deny it all she might, she can’t seem to resist obsessing over his friend and neighbor Theo.

Theo is making his comeback after a medical scare, and is quick to admit to his crush on Elle. Only problem is, she’s trying to resist his rugged appeal!

I highly recommend this book to fans of hockey romance. This sub-series as well as the original are filled with a close-knit group of players and staff that warm our hearts when they find their happily ever afters. You can’t go wrong with a Kate Meader hockey romance!
