    Beautiful all encompassing love...

    Toni Aleo has done it again! This book is 5 Stars of beautiful all encompassing love. It is a reminder of what Toni does best - write real and honest love stories. This book brought me back to the beginning of the Assassins series with its slow burn and build up. The story has a little bit of everything... it is emotional and slightly angsty, it is powerful and romantic, and at times sinfully dirty. Jensen has to be one of my favorite of Toni's Assassins... he is everything a woman wants in man. He is kind, generous, romantic, beautiful, take-charge and dirty. His heart is by far the largest of all the Assassins. I would love to spend more time with him. Wren... what can I say about her? I feel such a kinship to her. There were times I was reading this and I was like "how did Toni get in my head?" Wren is real and true... she is a strong and independent woman with real feelings, emotions, needs and problems. Don't get me wrong,l she does alot of stupid things. But don't we all. At the end of the day this is a story about to people, two very real people who make mistakes. This is love story that truly transcends time and place. It's a beautiful story of life and love and perseverance and trust!

    In The Crease

    This book has given me another favourite couple! Love the strength and vulnerability of both the main characters. Had me laughing out loud and crying a few tears. Can't wait for the next in the series.

    In the Crease (Assassins #12) by Toni Aleo

    Toni Aleo scores with IN THE CREASE, the twelfth book in the Assassins series. NHL goalie, Jensen Monroe, has been in love with his best friend’s little sister, Wren Lemiere, since they were kids. So, when she asks him to be her fake husband in order to get her inheritance, he jumps at the opportunity with the hopes of making it permanent. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences. I adore Jensen. He has become one of my favorite male characters. He is an amazing individual. He has some understandable insecurities. He is a wonderful guy who is patient and loyal. He and Wren are adorable together. Her self-esteem has been messed with, and she has a lot of obstacles that she faces in this story. They both grow tremendously and make a cute couple. I enjoyed the plot and sub-plot. I love that Wren’s brother, Vaughn Johansson, and Brie play a major role in this novel. They definitely added to the entertainment value. The boys and Wren have known each other forever, so they have a fun relationship. I love both Wren and Jensen’s families. My father went through some of the same diabetes issues that Jensen’s dad did. Therefore, my heart went out to Jensen and his family. Toni Aleo continues to do an astonishing job with her character development. She is a talented and skillful writer whom I can always count on for an amazing read. I loved the last chapter and epilogue. It was the perfect ending. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    She shoots, she scores...AGAIN!

    As usual, Toni Aleo’s book is like a drug you cannot get enough of! Is this book FDA approved? Because the list of side effects from reading this story is huge! I believe that every possible emotion was experiences while reading Wren and Jensen’s story. Wren has to be one of the most difficult and insecure lady protagonists written by Toni, and yet you find yourself feeling for her and cheering for her at every turn! How her story begins really lets the reader feel empathy for her from the getgo. Also, her general attitude and the relationship she has with her familiy makes the whole storyline more believable, especially since the « reason » for starting a relationship with the male protagonist might seem a bit far fetched at the beginning. As for Jensen (what a man!) there is NOTHING not swoonworthy about him. Gah, making all other men on earth seem « just average »...The guy is compassion and resilience incarnate during most of the story, but with enough fire to know that he is real. His backstory is a heartbreaking one and despite his past, he steps up to make the best of his new relationship with Wren. How he loves her, and how she responds to his love at different stages of the story was just fascinating to read and feel. Maybe there were not as many sexy scenes as usual, maybe I feel I am still wondering if she will get her inheritence, and maybe I feel wierd about Jensen’s mother saying « mon/ma chou » because I am a French Canadian and know that we dont use that terme of endearment in that specific way, but all in all, Toni Aleo has once again raised the bar in termes of delivering a story that is real and raw. Never have I read stories that make me cry, smile, cringe, laugh, want to be hugged, so much. She is a master writer and her stories need to read! Thank you for how generous you are with your words. This makes my top three list in the Assasins Series by Toni Aleo.
