Sunny Shelly’s Review: Jock Wanted by Kate Meader

 Release Date: June 14

She has her heart set on a hockey player. Any hockey player.

When the new general manager of the Chicago Rebels tasks Tara Becker with faking it with one of his players to help clean up the naughty jock’s act, she’s all over it. She’ll make that misbehaving hunk of muscle look good and get her dream guy into the bargain.

Only the path from fake to real is riddled with thorns . . .

New Rebels GM Hale Fitzpatrick thinks ditzy blonde and wannabe WAG Tara is the perfect solution to his PR problem – until she isn’t. Soon Fitz realizes that maybe he doesn’t have control of the strings after all . . . especially when he starts to fall for his pretty little puppet.

A fake relationship hockey romance – with a twist!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Tara is a wannabe hockey WAG. Hale is the new GM who needs to give one of his players an image overhaul and asks her to pretend to date the guy. Pretty much everyone thinks Tara is nothing more than an airhead and pretty face (including Tara herself). But the more time Hale spends with her, the more he discovers what a remarkable woman Tara really is.

And there comes the twist in this fake-relationship romance. Because now what Tara and Hale are feeling for one another is very real, but she’s in a high-profile (albeit fake) relationship with one of Hale’s players.

Tara was an interesting character with a lot of issues stemming from her childhood. I liked how patient Hale was with her, and it lead to some really sweet and tender moments between them. She kept pushing Hale away over and over again, but eventually she came to realize that he was exactly what she needed.

This book is part of a series, but I was able to jump in pretty easily even though I hadn’t read any of the other books.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
