Undone By You by Kate Meader Review

5 Smooches



Dante Moretti has just landed his dream job: GM of the Chicago Rebels. And screw the haters who think there should be an asterisk next to his name because he’s the first out managing executive in pro hockey. He’s earned the right to be here and nothing will topple him off that perch—especially not an incredibly inconvenient attraction to his star defenseman, Cade “Alamo” Burnett. Cade has always been careful to keep his own desires on the down low, but his hot Italian boss proves to be a temptation he can’t resist. Sure, they both have so much to lose, but no one will ever know…

As Dante and Cade’s taboo affair heats up off the ice and their relationship gets more and more intense, they’ll have to decide: is love worth risking their careers? Or is this romance destined to be forever benched?


WOW! What an amazing novella. I expected this to be hot, having read Kate Meader’s other M/M novella before but I had no clue how sweet and touching it would be as well. Undone By You is a story of how Cade, a professional hockey player, came to fall for his coach and in the process, he decides if the stress of staying in the closet is worth the pain it puts on himself and the man he is rapidly falling for.

This novella had me hooked on the first chapter and I was unable to stop reading until I reached The End. Kate Meader’s story-telling skills seem to only get better and better. My heart ached for Cade and Dante’s struggle. I rooted for them and rejoiced for them. I absolutely loved Undone By You and personally recommend to both those reading it as part of the Chicago Rebels series and as a standalone.
