Review: Falling for the Backup by Toni Aleo & Giveaway

Falling for the Backup

By: Toni Aleo



Toni Aleo’s sexy new eBook original novella featuring the Nashville Assassins will have you believing in the power of love at first sight . . . and second sight . . . and the third.

After serving as a dutiful bridesmaid in the wedding from hell, Aynslee Shaw just wants to
slink home to Nashville and forget the whole trip. That is, until the hottest guy she’s ever seen is seated next to her on the flight and dazzles her with his easy laugh and killer smile. But just when she thinks things are getting good, he vanishes, leaving Aynslee wondering, was that guy the one? And did she just let him slip through her fingers?

Former superstar goalie Jordan Ryan is back on the ice—finally. After a crippling knee injury that had him wondering if he’d ever play pro hockey again, he’s got his full attention on rebuilding his career. So a pretty—okay, beautiful—girl on a plane shouldn’t be a distraction. But Jordan is very, very distracted. And when Aynslee crosses his path again, he’s not sure any job in the world is worth missing his second chance with a woman like her.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from the Loveswept title Empty Net.


My Review:
Ok, first I have to say i'm aggrevated!  Not at the author or the book by any means, but that I liked it so much and know that it is not the first in the series.....grrrr.  Now It is a must that I go back and read the others.  I suppose I'm anal that way, I have to read a series in order :)
So for this novella?  Loved it !!!  I always liked hockey but just never had much opportunity to go.  I think I'll start bugging the hubby to see the Detroit Redwings.  Anywho, i loved how in such a short read, the author was seriously successful at putting together a well rounded story.  I fell for Jordan from the get-go.  I'm a sucker, what can I say :)    He's one of those really good guys who'd been dealt a bad hand.  I felt  awful for him injuring his knee and dropping in the ranks, just hoping he'll be able to play again.  Then into his life walks Aynslee, the perfect girl for him. 
What an enjoyably sexy read that would make anyone believe in love at first sight and happily ever after !
 I give Falling for the Backup 5 stars !!!  Make sure you pre-order your copy today  and don't forget to enter the giveaway via the rafflecopter below.
