Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals – and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next leve and is justifiably full of swagger.
Jenson Monroe is everything you could ask for in a man and in a sports romance hero. He’s kind, caring, compassionate, loving… not to mention, he’s absolutely gorgeous with a model physique and abs even Adam Vay would be jealous of. He’s the best in his profession and his position and it would seem he has no flaws. Oh, and he’s the goalie for Toni Aleo’s fictional Nashville Assassins.
All those who follow this blog in some capacity will know I’m a sucker for a hockey romance and Toni Aleo’s books were the first ones I ever read and made me fall in love with the genre.
The cover for the next book has been released and I am beyond excited to read and find out what the Nashville Assassins newest goalie is getting up to!

For the longest time Harland Day had known Courtney Williams, but when one day she turns up at his door with some news he’d not expected… No, he had expected it – but did he want to believe her? His father had managed to convince him that the woman he loved was sleeping around, so surely this wasn’t his problem?
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.
