    Rushing the Goal

    I just love this story of two souls finding each other. Benji's story is so sad but at the same time uplifting. His ability to overcome an addiction and grief is heart warming. Lucy's bad luck ended when she met Benji but her story is of a strong woman dealing with life. Toni once again you leave me wanting more of the Sinclair/Paxton/Moore family. Congratulations this book is up there with Shae and Jordie's

    Amazing tale of love, redemption and laughs

    Out of all of Toni Aleo’s Assassins series books, this one hit close to home. While Jordi captured my heart in Overtime, Benji now is permanently ingrained in my heart. I was very intrigued by him when he was introduced in Overtime and to see his story play out, my heart broke for him and melted at the same time! Lucy is one of those girls who is so jaded when it comes to men and I honestly cannot blame her. I love how Benji came up on her blind side and swept her off her feet. Even if it did take a bit. Angie was a delight to read and watching her banter with everyone was utterly priceless. I loved how old characters are so intertwined that it gives a strong sense of stability and family as the story progresses. Lucy and Benji together are sparks and fire! They play very well off of each other and complement each other perfectly. I love how Benji is wanting to be there for Lucy while she deals with the jerk ex Rick. Now Aleo totally wrote a jerk ex in him. There were many times I wanted to reach through the book and slap him upside the head or junk punch him! Overall this book is a beautiful tale of finding love again when being hurt and burned by prior relationships. It is also one epic tale of finding yourself and realizing that yes you do deserve your happily ever after. The flow of this book is perfect as it always keeps you on your toes. The emotions evoked are just wow! As always, Aleo is one stunning writer that gives nothing but an amazing tale of love, redemption and laughs.

    My favorite of the series so far!!!

    This book is a "more than" five star read for me. Some books leave you sad, angry, happy, content or even confused but this book left my heart feeling so full of joy! I'm pretty sure it was the sexy, emotion-filled Benji Paxton, hockey player and the amazing little girl by the name of Angela Lynn Hart. This author has done an amazing job at making Angela's character a shining bright light and bringing us a strong sense of family. She's a beautiful little girl with ADHD, smart as a whip and for me, she was the star of this story. Her mother, Lucy Sinclair, is a very difficult woman because of past hurts. Benji, who has the patience of a saint, took one look at Lucy and decided that he wanted to try to break down those walls of hers. And Rick? I don't think there are enough words in the dictionary to describe what a vile human being he is. My emotions were up, down and all over the place while reading this story and I loved it! The bedroom chemistry between the sexy hockey players and the women they love is envious. We even got to see Shea Adler again and he's as sexy as ever! While the entire Assassins series is great, this book has to be my favorite so far. I highly recommend this fantastic sports romance. You won't be disappointed. I'm excited to see which player will get his story told next. Received a copy via in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

    Touching!

    I was given an advanced copy of this book to write an honest review for Netgalley and Cocktails and Books. RUSHING THE GOAL is a touching story about Lucy Sinclair and Benji Paxton. Benji is a professional hockey player and he loves playing for the Assassins, but sadly, the rest of his life is empty. Benji is a nice guy who carries a lot of guilt and he stole my heart with his kindness and vulnerability. Benji has been waiting for love for a long time and as soon as he meets Lucy, he knows he has found the woman of his dreams. He likes Lucy and let's her know his feelings right from the start. Lucy is a single mother working hard as an interior designer to support her daughter and herself. She is independent and insists on doing everything herself and will not let anyone help her. I admired Lucy’s willingness to sacrifice so much for her daughter. However, Lucy has trust issues with men because her ex-husband treated her badly. Benji doesn't let Lucy’s abrasive attitude intimidate him. Benji understands Lucy is hardened and closed off due to her bad luck and tough life and he doesn't take her snarky remarks seriously. Sweet, nerdy Benji is the perfect guy for Lucy. He is goofy and wears his heart on his sleeve. He doesn't need to be in control and isn't a macho guy. He never expects more from Lucy than she is willing to give and he doesn't try to change her. Benji is patient and loving with Lucy and he is also wonderful with her daughter. I love stories about hockey players and have enjoyed all of the stories Toni Aleo has written about the Assassins hockey team. This is the eighth book in the Assassins series and each one is a standalone. Although I would recommend starting from the beginning of this series because there are recurring characters from each story. There are many entertained secondary characters including Lucy’s big, loving, zany family and the guys on the Assassin's team and their spouses. Although the guys on the team joke around and give each other a hard time, they are like family and will do anything for each other.
