What genre(s) do you write? 

Contemporary and sports romance.

 Coffee or tea lover? 

I’m an Irish girl, and tea is our national drink, so tea it is.

 Name one thing on your bucket list.

I would love to live in a small village in Italy for a few months. I got married in Italy and I’d love to spend an extended period there.

When I wake up every morning I… Check my email!

 Weirdest or unique thing you own.

I just got a fabulous holiday gift from my editor, a blanket with all my Chicago Rebels hockey romance covers on it. Definitely unique!Rebel blanket Kate Meader

 Do you have any hobbies or particular skills? 

I can speak Irish fluently. Nollaig shona dhuit! (Irish for Happy Holidays.)

 What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories? 

A fun and flirty escape into a world they love where they can experience all the feels.

What inspired you to write Instacrush? 

Theo “Superglutes” Kershaw was a standout secondary character in the previous book in the series, Good Guy, stealing every scene. He has such a sunny, open nature, so I thought it would be fun to pair him with someone who’s hiding her past–and give them a surprise pregnancy to manage! I’d never done an accidental pregnancy story before, so this was the perfect set-up for one.

 Which 2 or 3 words best describe your writing style?

Fun, real, and steamy.

Eileen’s Thoughts

Theo and Elle’s love story in Instacrush by Kate Meader, book 2 in the Rookie Rebels series, was an intriguing, sexy, and enjoyable tale. Theo has returned to the ice and the world of hockey after a life-threatening injury. He has the world by its tail with his amazing, outgoing personality, his on-ice talent, and his killer looks. Everyone adores him, except possibly his neighbor; or maybe she secretly does. Ex-military and now bartender, Elle cannot believe she is crushing on the hot hockey player across the hall or checking out his Instagram antics or sneaking peeks at him when he’s visiting her roommate or when he’s in her bar. She has fled from a past filled with secrets and is trying to avoid any attention that could be drawn to her. So spending a fantasy filled day with Theo needs to be kept secret. Unfortunately, fate, or is it karma, has other plans a few weeks later; she couldn’t be a mom to a pro-athlete’s baby.

Ms. Meader wrote a fun, flirty, sexy sports romance that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with emotions, sexual chemistry, humor, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters giving Theo and Elle a chance to at love, trust, and the chance to be a family for their little Hatchling. I loved the dinosaur references and how supportive Theo’s grandmother was. I also admired Theo for his romantic streak, giving Elle the charm bracelet and the meaning behind the charms. I highly recommend Instacrush to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
