Rushing the Goal (Assassins #8) by Toni Aleo Hits Shelves Today!!
Benji Paxton has spent years trying to right the wrongs of his past and find some semblance of a normal life, and he is slowly making progress. But it's turned him into somewhat of a recluse, he's tried dating, but he has yet to find someone who wants to stick around after he tells them about his past. All of his teammates are getting married and having families and he would love nothing more than to have a second chance at that kind of a life, but the right woman just hasn't come along. When his teammate asks him to fill in for him at his nieces hockey practice, he jumps at the chance to do something productive for the day, and get himself out of the house. What he doesn't expect is to find is though, is the woman he has been waiting for all this time, one look at Lucy Sinclair and he knows she is the one he has been waiting for all these years. Her quirky daughter immediately steals his heart, and he'd love nothing more than having a chance to win her mother's heart, but Lucy just isn't interested...
This was my first time reading something from this author, and I have to say that her writing totally took me by surprise, and instantly made me regret not reading something by her until now... she completely won me over with this beautifully written story, and I look forward to devouring more of her books in the VERY near future!! Barely a paragraph into it and I was completely consumed, and left with the insatiable urge for more!! Lucy and Benji pulled me into their world and had me completely entranced by every spoken word. It was evident from the very beginning that these two were definitely a match made in literary heaven, the intense chemistry they shared could be felt from their first encounter, and continued to burn intently until the very end. I highly recommend you give this read a try, it is one of those stories that will monopolize your every thought, steal the breath from your lungs, and linger with you long after the last page has been turned!
