Review: Good Guy by Kate Meader

Fans can’t get enough of Levi Hunt, the Special Forces veteran who put his NHL career on hold to serve his country and fight the bad guys. So when his new Chicago Rebels bosses tell him to cooperate with the press on a profile, he’s ready to do his duty. Until he finds out who he has to work with: flame-haired, freckle-splashed, impossibly perky Jordan Cooke.

The woman he should not have kissed the night she buried her husband, Levi’s best friend in the service.

Hockey-stick-up-his-butt-serious Levi Hunt might despise Jordan for reasons she can’t fathom—okay, it’s to do with kissing—but her future in the cutthroat world of sports reporting hangs on delivering the goods on the league’s hottest, grumpiest rookie. So what if he’s not interested in having his life plated up for public consumption. Too bad. Jordan will have to play dirty to get her scoop and even dirtier to get her man. Only in winning the story, she might just lose her heart...
I can't tell you how much I'm thrilled that we will have more Rebel books by Kate Meader. I loved the first series and this second one started off with a bang. With the Rookie Rebels series will get a new bunch of hockey players that makes us want to play on the ice too. 

I have to tell you that I just loved Levi. He's such a sweet guy even if he doesn't show it right away. You figure that out pretty quick when his friend shows up out of the blue and he's like, stay as long as you need. 

Sure he has his issues. He would rather not talk about his time in the military, he'd also not like to deal with his feels for Jordan. The sad part is that one of those things he's got no choice to do. 

What I love about Meader is that she builds the story, she doesn't let too much of the story out right away. As you read it more and more comes out. 

So at first Levi comes off cold and standoffish but soon you see the real him. He's none of those things. That's just him. He needs time to warm up. He's a case of never judging a book by its cover.  

Now Jordan I wasn't sure about. It seemed that all she wanted to do was use Levi to make her career. She used the fact that she knew him prior to finding a way in and rolled with it. But you soon learn she's fairer than you think. Yes, she wants to write about all the facts she finds out about Levi and the team but doesn't do it. Down deep shes, a good person just wanting to do a job she loves. 

Good Guy turned out to be a wonderful start to the series. It's drawn me in and makes me want to know more about some of the characters mentioned. What's their story? I can't wait to find out. You don't need to read the first series to enjoy this one but I will tell you that it will make it better. You have time before Good Guy comes out so start reading! You'll be happy you did. 

Have any of you read Kate Meader before? If so what's your favorite book or series by her? 


  1. I haven't read this author but this does sound like a good book. I'm not a fan of the headless torso book covers though.

    1. I really enjoy her books. I love the headless body. Ha! I like to come up with my own idea of what the people look like so I just want to basics of their looks.
