Review ~ Empty Net ~ Toni Aleo

Empty Net

Assassins Series #3 

Toni Aleo 


In Toni Aleo’s third novel in her hot Assassins series, the chiseled men of this Nashville hockey team can make anything happen when they go all out for the women they want—even turn a one-night stand into a happily ever after.

Audrey Parker is up against the boards. She’s stuck in a job she hates and pining for a total jerk. Meanwhile, her sister Fallon is moving out and getting married to hockey star Lucas Brooks. Where is Audrey’s Prince Charming? Nothing she does has ever seemed to be good enough for any of the men in her life. Audrey’s about to hit rock bottom . . . until she wakes up next to Tate Odder.

The thrill of moving up from the minors to the Nashville Assassins was a welcome distraction. But not even becoming the first rookie goalie to tally three shutouts in the Stanley Cup finals alleviates the pain. With the loss of his parents and sister weighing as heavily on his soul as ever, Tate Odder can’t keep pretending he’s okay. That’s when he meets smart, sexy Audrey. Her gentle warmth and quirky sense of humor make him feel whole for the first time in too long. But to stay that way forever, Tate must find a way to accept his past and learn to live for love.

Tate Odder is the star goalie for the Nashville Assassins hockey team. He's great at his job, has awesome friends from the team including his best friend Lucas. The only ting he doesn't have but wants is someone to spend his life with. And being a young, ripe 21 year old. Most people think he's insane for wanting that settle down at such an age. But they just don't understand. 

Audrey has been in and out of love several times in ehr life. The most recent is the most screwed up!  After a one-night stand with aptly dubbed - "blondie"- she's done with men. Besides, who can love half a woman? 

Tate immediately recognizes Audrey as his runaway one-night stand. He figures it's time to stake his claim whether she wants it or not. The fact that she's 7 years older than him is nothing in his mind, yet everything in hers. When I requested Empty Net, I didn't know it was a part of a series. Now that I do know, Yea, I'm totally one-clicking those bad boys. I can't wait to read more about the sexy Assassins. Toni Aleo has a new fan!!
