  • Grumpy Meets Sunshine

    Reid and Kennedy s love story in Dear Roomie by Kate Meader, book five in the Rookie Rebels series, was an emotional, intriguing, sexy, and enjoyable hockey romance. This story should really have been named Grumpy Cinnamon Roll Meets Sunshine Nomad. Reid and Kennedy come from very different, if not equally heartbreaking, backgrounds, which lead them to the current situation. Reid has been a royal jerk, getting traded from NHL team to team, never staying in one place for very long; always trying to earn the love and respect of his famous hockey stepfather. Kennedy is a Jane of All Trades; able to teach English in foreign countries, yoga, dog-walker, barista, you name it. She is currently in Chicago to help her grandpa’s wife adjust to living in a senior center; the person who took Kennedy in after the death of her parents. When Reid and Kennedy rescue an adorable, but badly abused, dog, they end up rescuing each other. I loved that Kennedy refused to accept Reid’s grumpiness at face value. The slow burn between these two was as adorable as Bucky and led to a very explosive, sizzling connection. I also enjoyed the exploration of love, loss, and toxic family dynamics along with how Reid and Kennedy were able to know what the other needed in order to get past their scars, but were also willing to do the work for their own. I also enjoyed catching up with other Rebels and their families while also meeting new ones. I want to know what going on with Erik and Casey. I also want to see a story for Bastian, Reid’s brother. Ms. Meader wrote an emotional, amazing, burn the sheets, sports romance that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with emotions, sizzling chemistry, difficult topics, revealing conversations, and endearing characters giving Reid and Kennedy a chance at closure with their pasts, a real love, and a future together. I highly recommend Dear Roomie to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • Feel the burn.

    The hard knocks of life and love leave a lasting impression on a heart. Dear Roomie makes sure of that. Meader takes a dreamboat hockey star and a fiesty, down on her luck whirlwind and finds irresistible chemistry. Reid and Kennedy are the poster couple for an imperfect fit, but somehow despite all the emotional baggage they find a way to make sense. Sparks fly, tempers flare and emotions run wild. Meader brings the fire and readers feel the burn.

  • An emotional roller coaster

    I really enjoyed this book. The writing was well done, the story fun and the characters likable. I found Reid had my temperature on the rise with his chilly exterior and warm squishy center. Kennedy, I liked but admit that occasionally she would rub me the wrong way. Still, I genuinely loved this couple and I could definitely feel for them. A dollop of cuteness is mixed with emotions and some drama to create a book that will have you smiling, in need of tissues, desperately wanting to give someone what they are so begging for and feeling all the swoon. This is my frank, freely posted review.

  • Okay, but I feel I've read it all before

    How have I missed books 2 to 4 of this series? Okay, cards on the table, I thought this was a totally different book so my rating is somewhat influenced by my disappointment that this isn't A Kiss for a Kiss which is what I thought I was buying - my bad! Reid Durant is the exception to the rule that all Canadians are polite and friendly. His stepfather has brought him up to consider everyone and everything a potential barrier to being a successful hockey player, including his stepbrother Bastian. He eats healthily, swears off sex during the season and practices for hours every day, yet nothing is ever good enough for his father. Kennedy Clark is a rolling stone. After her parents died in a house fire she has avoided putting down roots, preferring to travel the world looking for adventure. She's been in Chicago for a while, looking out for her step-grandmother who has recently gone into an old people's home, and is saving for a trip to Thailand teaching English as a second language by dog walking and working as a barista. When a series of events lead to Reid getting Kennedy fired, and Reid adopting a stray dog, Reid offers Kennedy a job dog-sitting while he is on the road. But soon Reid finds his focus is being tested by his diminutive roomie and his heart is being softened by a small, beaten-up dog. Will opening his heart help or hinder his game? I felt that this was too much hockey romance by the numbers, I thought I had read it all somewhere before, including playing games with seniors at an old people's home and acting as a concierge service. Maybe if I had read the three intervening books I would have felt more connection, but then I think my views are reinforced by the fact that I thought I had read all the books in this series until I checked - in other word, the characters seemed too familiar. It was enjoyable but didn't bring anything new to the table to me.
