Waiting On Wednesday (22): Trying To Score

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you have a chance to let other know what you can’t wait to claim as your own.

by Toni Aleo
Expected publication April 30th, 2012

Fallon Parker’s dream was to have her family’s wine company at the top of all wine magazines and to have a cellar of her own. After graduating from college, she has worked hard to make that dream a reality, even if that meant having a nonexistent love life. She had her chance at love and that was a bust, so she put everything into the wine company. After becoming the official sponsor of the Nashville Assassins, Fallon finally feels like everything is falling in place, that is until Lucas Brooks comes back into her life. 

Lucas Brooks hates his life. He is lonely, he is sober, and he is angry. On the ice, when he’s not in the sin bin, he the leading scorer in the NHL but off the ice, he is a mess. He threw away the most important person in his life, and has regretted it ever since but when Lucas sees Fallon again after being traded to the Assassins; he is bound and determined to get her back. Even if she wants nothing to do with him. 

The sexual tension between Fallon and Lucas is electrifying as Lucas tries to convince Fallon that he is a changed man. Fallon tries to resist Lucas, but it is so hard when all her body wants is his. But when Lucas finds out that Fallon has been keeping a huge secret from him, the game he is playing stops and penalties are called. 

With new rules and new players on the ice, will Fallon and Lucas be able to work out their differences and work as a team or will they be left trying to score alone. 
Why I need this: Oh so I kinda already read this baby and it was so incredible!!! But!!! I must tell everyone about this series!! Seriously it has totally taken over my brain!!! The first book Taking Shots is FANTASTIC! And this book is even better!!! Its Assassins week over at Insightful Minds and I felt it was fitting to just have more hockey love here! Because what’s even better is that Lucas was a Sharks player for a long time!!! And my boys are in the playoffs!!! GO SHARKS!!!! Can you tell I have hockey on the brain!! Seriously though people if you like your books to have steam and are a fan of the Thoughtless series, Beautiful Disaster, Fifty series, Abbi Glines books and any other books where you great to read about amazing characters falling in love and all the gooie parts in between you will HAVE to get your hands on these babies!!!
Sorry everyone, I'm just so excited for playoffs!!!! I'm just can't help myself!!!

What are you waiting for?


  1. That sounds like a very interesting book and I'll have to add it to my list to keep an eye on. It's scary, y'know... So many books, so little time. I can never figure out how to sort through everything I want to read (plus have time to blog and write my own book) because there's just so much great stuff out there.

    Thanks for sharing this, though. It looks awesome!

  2. First I've heard of this. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I love it when books are centred around a sport - I get to learn so many things that I didn't know, and then look like a genius in front of my friends when I spurt out facts and all in an entertaining book!

    This looks like a fun (and a little sexy) read. Thanks so much for sharing!
