Chandler Moon’s career as a defensemen for the IceCats is on fire. However, his marriage has gone up in flames…literally. He’s resigned himself to the single life and being the best dog dad he can be, but he still holds out hope that one day he’ll find “The One.” So, imagine his surprise when he runs into “The One Who Got Away.”
His best friend’s baby sister.
AKA: “The One Who Is Totally Off-Limits”
Amelia is broken. The punches that life, and her ex-husband, have thrown at her have her down for the count. She’s cut herself off from her family and friends as she works to rebuild her self-esteem and her spirit. Hidden away in a small town, she never expects to reconnect with “The One She Should Have Chosen.”
Chandler is so much more than he was in college: more handsome, more muscular, more tattooed… It was supposed to be a casual fling while Amelia and Chandler worked to put the pieces of their lives back together.
But as every good hockey player knows, a rebound can turn into one hell of a goal.
ARC received for an honest review
I have been a huuuuge fan of Ms Aleo's Assassins series, and she has not disappointed me with this first IceCats book (though in my head I am calling this Assassins: The Next Generation).
We have already had the story of Ryan Justice, and now we have the story of his sister and his best friend.
Oh how I love Amelia and Chandler. Right from the very first time we meet them in Juicy Rebound, I was hooked.
The Justice family is a strong one, however the past few years has seen them fracture. Amelia is so strong, yet has been emotionally broken. My heart hurts for her (and the rest of the Justice family) as they try to find their way back to each other.
Chandler - le sigh. After what he has been through, you can't blame him for being gun shy when it comes to women - well, except for his Amelia.
Their story is one of loving when you don't feel like you are worthy. Not just intimate love, but also familial love.
This book really pulled at my heartstrings, as I went from laughter to tears, sometimes in the space of just a chapter or two.
I did enjoy seeing a little of my first Assassins love, Shea. Oh that man 😍😍😍
This was a fantastic start to this new series, and I am looking forward to where the IceCats take us next.
My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
