Sum It Up!Holy Hot Hockey players!

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. (Goodreads)

Holy Hot Hockey players! The second installment to the Assassins series contains all the elements that we love in a romance novel. Sexual tensions, memorable characters, scorching sex scenes, steady paced storyline, character growth, and did I mention the sex scenes? Whew!!!

Fallon Parker is living her life in Nashville, and is determined to take her families wine company to the next level. Working with the Assassins hockey team to help her accomplish her ultimate goal, she soon finds herself in a dilemma since her former lover that she left in California, has now been traded to the Assassins. Not only did Lucas Brooks break her heart, but she has hidden a secret from him for many years.

The chemistry between Lucas and Fallon is off the charts! She is a very stubborn woman who cannot let the past go, but Lucas is determined to show her he is a changed man; which makes the reader fall for him more along with making this story more intense. I love how Aleo takes us on a journey with this love story not rushing the reader as these two reconnect!
