REVIEW : Good Guy by Kate Meader

He’s a Special Forces veteran making his pro hockey debut. She’s a dogged sports reporter determined to get a scoop. She’s also his best friend’s widow…

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… 

Levi Hunt was six feet three of Special Forces badassery, his body a honed weapon, his gaze sharp enough to fell the enemy or a weak-willed woman at fifty paces.


I am a sucker for hockey romances and I love Kate Meader’s writing so when I saw she had a new series coming out I knew I had to read it. I love that these rookies aren’t just college aged jocks, but men who have grown up and experienced life outside of hockey.

Levi Hunt is a former special forces officer and but hockey on hold to fight. He is done with his service and now is back playing hockey for the Chicago Rebels. The public wants to know more about this man and every journalist wants a chance to be the one to tell his story. Enter Jordan Cooke, journalist with a a personal connection to Levi. Her husband was in the Green Berets with Levi and his best friend. These two are given a second chance, but will they be able to give into the chemistry or will their careers be more important in the end?

I loved this second chance romance. I love the chemistry between Levi and Jordan. It was a classic he saw her first, but knew there was something between her and his best friend so he stepped back. There is so much more to Levi than what meets the eye. The more we learn about Levi throughout the story the more and more you fall in love with him. I also loved Jordan. She has experienced a lot of loss at her young age and the things she has to go through and the things that she experiences in her career are so relatable.

I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and get more glimpses into the Chicago Rebel’s hockey team.
