Title: Good Guy
Author: Kate Meader
Series: Rookie Rebels #1
Levi Hunt put his NHL career on hold to serve his country. Now he is getting a second chance at playing the sport he loves but unfortunately it means he has to deal with the press. Being forced by his boss to cooperate with the press is the last thing he wants to do, even if it means talking to the one woman he shouldn’t want.
I read the Chicago Rebels series a few years ago and really enjoyed it so when I saw that she was making another series about the Rebels I was all over it. Unfortunately, time got away from me and I am just now getting to this series but that just means I don’t have to wait long for the next book. I really enjoyed this book. Meader writes amazing characters with so much personality that you can’t help but fall for them.
Levi and Jordan parted on awkward terms. Jordan thinks Levi hates her and has always disapproved of her. Levi pushes her away because he always was attracted to her, even when she was married to his best friend. The chemistry between these two is so hot and intense! I just loved it.
I really loved Jordan in this book. Meader really knows how to write a strong female character with some sass. Jordan is an amazing journalist who wants to make the NHL, and sports in general, more open to female workers and less sexist. I loved her determination to do the right thing, even when it was breaking her heart.
While Jordan is very outgoing and open Levi is the opposite. He is very private and doesn’t want anyone to know his past struggles or what he does in his spare time. We find that he is also a social justice warrior in his own way. He is determined to help homeless people, especially veterans, get the help they need. I really liked him even when he was being a grumpy jerk.
Overall, I really enjoyed this new series and I can’t wait to read the next one, especially since it’s Theo’s (Superglutes) book.
