Series: The Assassins Series Book #3.5 (novella)
Author: Toni Aleo
Blurb: Toni Aleo’s sexy new eBook original novella featuring the Nashville Assassins will have you believing in the power of love at first sight . . . and second sight . . . and third.
After serving as a dutiful bridesmaid in the wedding from hell, Aynslee Shaw just wants to slink home to Nashville and forget the whole trip. That is until the hottest guy she’s ever seen is seated next to her on the flight and charms her with his easy laugh and killer smile. But just when she thinks things are getting good, he vanishes, leaving Aynslee wondering, was that guythe one? And did she just let him slip through her fingers?
Former superstar goalie Jordan Ryan is back on the ice—finally. After a crippling knee injury that had him wondering if he’d ever play pro hockey again, he’s got his full attention on rebuilding his career. So a pretty—okay, beautiful—girl on a plane shouldn’t be a distraction. But Jordan is very, very distracted. And when Aynslee crosses his path again, he’s not sure any job in the world is worth missing his second chance with a woman like her.
Thoughts: I really just don’t have enough good things to say about Toni Aleo. I have read all of the books in her Assassins series, and really can’t expand on just how great they are. The whole series is so refreshing – so funny, sweet, and romantic – each one is like a breath of fresh air. This series is one of my favorite ones for 2013. To be honest, I keep waiting for that book from Aleo that simply stalls out, and I go “Ahh…see, I knew they would start going downhill….” But I have yet to be disappointed! And Falling For The Backup falls right in line with the others in this series.
I wish that it had been a full length novel, but that is my only protest – however, I must say that it is the perfect thing to give you another taste of Aleo’s writing while we wait for Blue Lines to be released!
The first, second, and third books from this series, Trying to Score, Taking Shots and Empty Net are also out now! Blue Lines (book #4) has a tentative release date of August 12, 2013.
