Blog Tour: Toni Aleo - Trying to Score

Today's Blog Tour is Presented by Reading Addiction Blog Tours!

Later we will have a Review and Giveaway, but up first, let's meet the Author! 


I am a wife, mother, and hopeless romantic.
I have been told I have anger issues, but I think it’s cause of my intense love for hockey!
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughters dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, and reading the latest romance novel.
I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, and did I mention I love hockey?

Title: Trying to Score (Assassins #2)
Author: Toni Aleo
Date Published: 4/11/12

Fallon Parker’s dream was to have her family’s wine company at the top of all wine magazines and to have a cellar of her own. After graduating from college, she has worked hard to make that dream a reality, even if that meant having a nonexistent love life. She had her chance at love and that was a bust, so she put everything into the wine company. After becoming the official sponsor of the Nashville Assassins, Fallon finally feels like everything is falling in place, that is until Lucas Brooks comes back into her life.

Lucas Brooks hates his life. He is lonely, he is sober, and he is angry. On the ice, when he’s not in the sin bin, he the leading scorer in the NHL but off the ice, he is a mess. He threw away the most important person in his life, and has regretted it ever since but when Lucas sees Fallon again after being traded to the Assassins; he is bound and determined to get her back. Even if she wants nothing to do with him.

The sexual tension between Fallon and Lucas is electrifying as Lucas tries to convince Fallon that he is a changed man. Fallon tries to resist Lucas, but it is so hard when all her body wants is his. But when Lucas finds out that Fallon has been keeping a huge secret from him, the game he is playing stops and penalties are called.

With new rules and new players on the ice, will Fallon and Lucas be able to work out their differences and work as a team or will they be left trying to score alone.

My Rating:

My Review:
I've watched some hockey over the years, but I wouldn't call myself a huge fan or anything. Leave it to Toni Aleo to make me into a wannabe die hard hockey fan. I absolutely LOVE this series! 

Fallon and Luke have a history, finding out just how deep that history is is part of the journey in Trying to Score. Because of their history, they have such a familiarity between them that was just a joy to read. Even with the quips and tension their banter was great! 

Luke is that book hero that you fall for fast! So it is difficult at times to read from Fallon's perspective without wanting to smack her upside the head. LOL But then you have to take a step back and realize all she has been through and why she is as guarded as she is. I am a huge sucker for charcters who show growth over the course of a story. This is definitely one of those books! 

Be prepared for a wild ride of ups and downs, smiles and frowns! It is more than worth it in the end! 

I am anxiously awaiting Book #3, Empty Net!

As a lover of Hockey, I am surprised I didn't know about these sooner. I will definitely be picking them up to read after my current series is over. ;)

I love her play on words at the end there, it made me giggle. lol Can't wait to read more.

I'm new around these parts. ;)

I have 3 sons and a daughter-in-law that play in an adult hockey league so I get to my share of games too. I love to read books of all tyoes so I'm sure I'll love hers too.
