Description

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Toni Aleo’s third novel in her hot Assassins series, the chiseled men of this Nashville hockey team can make anything happen when they go all out for the women they want—even turn a one-night stand into a happily ever after.
 
Audrey Parker is up against the boards. She’s stuck in a job she hates and pining for a total jerk. Meanwhile, her sister Fallon is moving out and getting married to hockey star Lucas Brooks. Where is Audrey’s Prince Charming? Nothing she does has ever seemed to be good enough for any of the men in her life. Audrey’s about to hit rock bottom . . . until she wakes up next to Tate Odder.
 
The thrill of moving up from the minors to the Nashville Assassins was a welcome distraction. But not even becoming the first rookie goalie to tally three shutouts in the Stanley Cup finals alleviates the pain. With the loss of his parents and sister weighing as heavily on his soul as ever, Tate Odder can’t keep pretending he’s okay. That’s when he meets smart, sexy Audrey. Her gentle warmth and quirky sense of humor make him feel whole for the first time in too long. But to stay that way forever, Tate must find a way to accept his past and learn to live for love.

    From the moment I purchased this book, I couldn't put it down. Toni, once again, captivated me with a member of the Assassins & his passionate love of a head strong woman. I hope this series runs for a long time.

    I felt like the story was cut off way too soon. As big of an issue it was about Audrey getting pregnant there should have been the dr visit in there when they found out they were having a girl. All the talk about the cakery and it didn't have it's opening during the book either. I really enjoyed the book but wish some things could have been elaborated on. It seemed like the story just abruptly ended.
  • Loved it!

    I love this whole series but this book is by far my fav. In the first two books the characters had to get over their insecurities to the guy, but in this one it was a completely different issue. Also, I really love how Fallon, Lucas, Elli, Shea and Piper were all very present in this book. I love this series and look forward to reading more books!
  • Another winner!

In keeping with the two previous books, this one tugs on your heart strings and makes you feel like you are actually there with the characters. I can't wait for the next book to come out...this is an awesome series and I hope there are many more to come. Definitely worth reading!!!
