Taking Shots by Toni Aleo
Net Galley Book
4 star Review
No matter how hard she tries, Elleanor Fisher never thinks she’s good enough, from her job to her weight to her love life. After enduring years of abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend, Elli has been drifting through life in a daze. Until, that is, she meets Shea Adler on a promotional shoot for the NHL’s Nashville Assassins. Before Elli knows what’s happening, the gorgeous Shea breaks the ice and shatters her world.
A brilliant athlete inside the rink, Shea Adler is tired of the life he’s living outside of it: the women, the money, the drinking. But everything changes when he meets Elli. After laying eyes on this feisty, witty, beautiful woman, he feels like he’s just taken the hardest hit of his life. No matter how skeptical she is, Shea knows they are meant to be together—if only he can convince Elli to put her insecurities aside before she misses out on a shot at love.
My Review- Even after living many years in Michigan I have never been a hockey fan (Sorry-Red Wings!)-but this set of books may change my mind. After reading the first book in this series I was totally hooked on these books and I am so glad I did.
First -you don't have to be a sports fan to appreciate the men in this book -all great physical men and Shea is a great character-also Elleanor is a great female lead with the same problems we all fight. These characters are not perfect (thank you) and there faults make them all better for it. The passion and attraction between two people is a great read and I am so glad to be on the ride!
This is the first book from The Assassin Series but I am glad too say that this is only the beginning for the bad boys of Nashville!!! Lisa
