Reading Challenge for 2024

After a very public breakup and a viral post that declares him the villain, power forward Cal Foreman is taking a timeout from women and relationships to focus on hockey. When Chicago Rebels captain and old friend, Vadim Petrov, “volunteers” him to help train Vadim’s sister Mia, Cal figures he can do a favor for a pal and get ready for the season with his new team. But the imperious Russian would slice a skate blade through Cal’s internal organs if he knew what lessons Mia really wants.

Yeah, not that kind of stickhandling.

Hockey phenom and Olympics hopeful Mia Wallace needs help seducing the man of her dreams. That man is most definitely not Cal Foreman: notorious playboy, thorn in her side, and her brother's bestie. But surely a guy with his reputed skill set has a few tips on how she can nail her target—which makes him the perfect foreplayer.

Cal knows Mia sees him as merely the warm-up act in her grand plan to win another man, but as they spend more time together, he wonders if that’s enough.

If they could be more.

And if he could convince her he’s worthy of the starting line-up... in her heart?
I so enjoy reading Kate Meader. Her books always give me what I want in a story. You really come to enjoy the characters of her stories. Up this time is Mia and Cal's story. This one is fun. Mia is using Cal to get the attention of the man she really wants, or at least "thinks" she wants. He doesn't mind at all because he's loving being with her. 

You quickly learn that Mia has so underlining issues in life and Cal is just the man to help her through it. It takes Mia a bit to understand what she's feeling for Cal and admit it to herself. She's very goal orientated and doesn't want to move from those goals. 

The fun part is that she takes two steps closer to her goals and one back to Cal. As time goes on these really learn to communicate and open up about their feelings. Falling for each other isn't easy on either of them but Cal is more honest with his feelings. He worries that wanting his friend's sister will ruin their relationship and I can't blame him. 

I found myself more than once laughing while reading Foreplayer and that's one of the reasons I love reading books by Meader. This is the perfect addition to the Rookie Rebels series, and I love reading them all.
