Description

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Toni Aleo, comes a spin off series from the Assassins: The Bellevue Bullies! 

Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I’m good at it…really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships beyond my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus. 
She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking. 
She’s my game changer. 
*** 
He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling. 
I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny. 
Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that’s my secret. 
***
You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love… or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight? 
Especially when you’re boarded by love.

    After meeting these two in the Assassins Series, reading their story was awesome. This book has it all - steaminess, drama, love and humor. Jude Sinclair is all of those qualities and Claire Anderson is a girl with a past that makes her see life differently. Together they fit like a glove. I love this cross-over because you get to meet those Sinclair boys while still seeing some of the Assassins characters. Side note - spoiler I was confused with one part of this book. It stated that Skylar stopped dancing because her brother came into the club. But we meet Skylar in Face-off at the Alter and she only has a sister.

    Wonderfully terrible. There are so many things that made this book painful for me to read. First off, this book was way too long. It was so dragged out with repetitive mulling & self declarations it got old super quick. ( side note: you can't put 'super' in front of a word & smush them together into one word. 'Supertired, supercute'. Can you say 'super stupid'?) It was Claire & Jude both believing they've fallen in love… within 6 days. It was soo unbelievable! There was no build up, the author didn't see their first days of getting to know little details. I didn't feel invested in the characters, there wasn't much in way of substantial relationship building. The gushy way the couple talk to each other isn't relatable on any level. I've got a headache from rolling my eyes so much when they talk. Within 2 weeks they're both believing they've found the one. You don't have the stones to tell him where you work but you think you've got a lasting relationship? Totally. What a waste. Idk how no one else found this painful to read. Save yourself from the bs of this couple.
  • Best book ever

    This is the first book by Toni that i read and i have to say, even on the first chapter i was hooked. I couldn't stop laughing. Claire and Jude are funny, both cocky and so much fun. And yes, toward the end, i couldn't keep the faucet from running. I LOVE THIS BOOK! I love the characters, the closeness between the brothers and you can be sure i'm getting the other two in the series. Toni has become one of my favorite authors. Write on Toni. Keep it coming. Looking forward to more books from you....MaryAnn Y.

    Great book. Well developed plot, characters are well defined. Hot, sexy, and full of twists and turns. I worried right along with Claire that Jude would find out her secret. My heart broke right along with her's when he did. I highly recommend this book, especially for hockey fans and those that love hard. Those that have made mistakes in their love life and then become stuck with a decision made early in a relationship. Will the mistake be forgiven? Or is the resulting loss of trust too much to forgive? You will have to read it to find out. But I believe you will enjoy the entire adventure as much as I did and it will be worth it.
  • Soooo good
