Trying to Score by Toni Aleo Review

Fallon Parker’s dream has always been to turn her family’s wine company into a runaway success and eventually start a cellar of her own. Since graduating from college, she has worked relentlessly to make that dream a reality, especially after taking a chance on love—and losing. By the time Fallon becomes an official sponsor of the Nashville Assassins, she feels like all her hard work is finally paying off. And then the man who broke her heart skates back into her life.
On the ice, Lucas Brooks is the NHL’s leading scorer—at least when he’s not in the box. Off the ice, he’s a mess, with all his anger and misery bottled up inside. He threw away the most important person in his life and has regretted it ever since. But when Lucas returns to Nashville in a trade, he’s determined to convince Fallon that he’s a changed man. The attraction is still there. The tension is electrifying. But the odds are stacked against them—especially after Lucas finds out that Fallon has been keeping a devastating secret.

My Review: 4.5 Stars
This is the second book in the series, and I loved it almost as much as the first. Fallon needed to be smacked a few times but Lucas was great. It had romance, steamy love scenes and hockey, a perfect combination. You don't have to read the first book to follow the story in this one but Elli and Shea's story is great.

Fallon Parker is raising her son as a single mother in Nashville. Everything is going great; her sister is helping raise her son, her family's wine has basically become the official wine of Nashville's hockey team, the Assassins, life is pretty great. Then her ex/baby daddy, who doesn't know about their son, gets traded to the Assassins.

Lucas Brooks is glad to be in Nashville. He is playing for a team that has a chance to win the cup and he is close to his ex-girlfriend, who he never stopped loving. When they see each other again for the first time in 7 years sparks fly. Now Fallon has to decide if she can forget/forgive the past and Lucas has to decide if he can forgive her from keeping his son from him.

Really enjoyed the book. Ms. Toni writes in such away that you just want to kept reading. She is one of those authors who's words just suck you in and you can feel the emotions that the characters are going through, which in my opinion is a sign of a great author. I'm looking forward to the rest of the Assassins series.
