Opposites do more than just attract in Toni Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist.
The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lies behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test.
Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam.
My Review: 4 Stars
I don't hide the fact that I LOVE Toni Aleo's Assassin series and I knew going into this book that I probably wouldn't like Erik (I was right... at least at first), but I didn't figure I would love this book as much as I did. Erik is kind of an a$$ through out the book, but when you find out why he is the way he is you can't help but feel for the guy and all that he went through. Piper is great. She does what she wants to do, despite her family's disapproval over how she lives/leads her life, but she is kind hearted and only wants to help the people she loves. The book has ups and downs and breaks your heart a few times, but overall it is another great book from Ms. Aleo.
