    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.

    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

    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.

    Loved Lucy and Benji's story!!!

    I've wanted Lucy Sinclair to get her own book since we first met the Sinclair family. I knew after everything her ex-husband had put her through, and the fact that she had a child, it was going to take a special man to get Lucy to accept him in their lives. Benji Paxton is just the man to take on both Lucy and her daughter Angie and never look back. I absolutely loved Benji so very much. I'd missed meeting him in Overtime, as I somehow skipped it, and I loved that Ms. Aleo completed filled us in on his background. I found Benji to be such a strong, sweet, determined and sexy character. He also was absolutely amazing with Angie and I'm pretty sure I fell in love with him right along with Lucy and Angie. Lucy honestly can best be described as a ball-buster, yet there really is so much more. After learning more about her past with her ex-husband and seeing how her dad leaving the family affected her, I totally got her putting on such a strong front. She will do anything on earth to protect Angie and those people she loves. I loved the instant attraction between Lucy and Benji and totally got her being so very hesitant to move forward with anything, but was so glad Benji made sure he stayed in the picture. I'll be honest and say I absolutely wanted to kick Lucy's ex-husband in his junk more than once when he was around both Lucy and Angie. I don't think I've ever hated a character so much in any book. I was so happy that Lucy and Angie had won the lottery with great guys when Benji entered their lives. I really loved how sweet he was with Angie. I also loved the sweet moments between Benji and Lucy. He made my heart melt over and over again with the little things he did to show his love. The chemistry between Lucy and Benji was obvious from the first moment they met and I absolutely loved they had to fight to keep their hands off each other. I loved how much they wanted each other whether in a sweet slow love making scene or up against the wall can't get enough of each other scene. Lucy and Benji made me fall in love with them as a couple. Rushing the Goal was such a fun and sexy read. I fall in love with each couple in all of Ms. Aleo's books, and it was no different with Lucy and Benji. While I'm sad this is the last book that will focus on the Sinclair clan, I absolutely loved seeing Lucy finally find a man worthy of her love. Review copy provided by publisher
