    This highly emotional story is well rounded with angst, humor and passion. Add hot hockey gods and what more can you ask for? Do not pass this one up. Worth every second I invested in it.

    Face-Off at the Altar (Assassins #9) by Toni Aleo

    Toni Aleo is on a winning streak with book nine in Assassins series, FACE-OFF AT THE ALTAR. Markus Reeves is struggling in the AHL, torn up about how his relationship ended with college girlfriend, Mekena Preston. Meanwhile, Mekena still feels betrayed by Markus and her sister, Skylar. Mekena is hired to photograph Lucy Sinclair’s and Benji Paxton's wedding. Markus is an honorary member of the Sinclair family, so the two are forced to face each other. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences. It takes place in Nashville, Tennessee. We first met Mekena and Markus in the Bellevue Bullies series. Markus played hockey with the Sinclairs on the Bullies. Mekena and Avery (Jace Sinclair’s wife) are best friends. She is also, the younger sister of Skylar Preston, who caused numerous conflicts in the Bellevue series. I never liked the girl; she is the opposite of Mekena. Mekena and Markus are both likeable characters. They have a lot of issues to resolve in this story, including family drama on both sides. They discover some painful information pertaining to their past that they need to heal from. My heart broke for both characters. Markus is a great guy. I felt horrible about what happened to him. He feels incredibly guilty for what happened with Skyler and beats himself up over it. He is great with kids. He is competitive. He has a wonderful personality. His Christmas present to Mekena and her mother were extremely thoughtful. Mekena is a sweet person and a talented photographer. She is smart. She is sarcastic. I love that they both went to counseling. They are an adorable couple that endure a lot. I love that Markus is considered family by the Sinclairs and that they look out for him. I appreciate that they tell it how it is and don’t sugar coat things. I love the banter between the Sinclairs. I enjoyed Avery’s cat, Mr. Right. His name and personality amused me. Mekena’s Aunt Libby is an interesting character that added a lot to the story. Toni Aleo continues to amaze me. Her stories are heartfelt and believable. I love that they make me experience every emotion. I cry; I laugh; I get mad and frustrated. The characters are lovable but have flaws. They are realistic and people you would want to be friends with. Her plots have substantial content that is meaningful and relevant. Her hockey scenes are always easy to visualize and well written. I cannot wait for her next story. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Terrific Second Chance Sports Romance

    I was thrilled when I heard there was going to be a new Assassins book coming out! I have read and loved the entire series along with the entire Bellevue Bullies series! So, this story overlaps both series and the beloved characters appear and it felt like coming home. I realized how much I missed these characters. This book can be read as a stand-alone as the authors ties it all up well, but I highly recommend that you read both series just because it is great reading! To top it off, it has two of my favorite genres, second chance romance and sports romance! This book has so many feels to it, happiness, anger, extreme sadness, longing, betrayal, confusion, and a powerful deep love! The author takes on a subject that is not spoken about often and it was handled in a great way. I had a lump in my throat a few times as the twists in the plot unfolded. I laughed out loud at all the crazy banter. You root so hard for these characters and get so involved in their love story. They truly love each other and they go through a lot to get to their HEA. They are sweet together and they have great chemistry. The secondary characters are terrific and you get some thoughts that maybe the author might have some other characters to write about! I didn’t want to put Face-Off At The Alter down, which was tough with the holidays, and I didn’t want it to end. I want more! If you love a great second chance sports romance like I do, then this is a book for you!
