“Empty Net by Toni Aleo is the third novel in her Assassins Series and just like the previous novels this one was a turning page novel too. I was given the opportunity to read and review this book as part of a blog tour and I’m glad I was part of it. Every book in this series was hard to put down and I knew I was hooked from the first page.
We met Audrey in the previous book where her sister Fallon found the love of her life in Lucas Brooks. At the end of that book we all read that Audrey was involved with Levi and I knew that man was bad to the bone but not in a good way. Then she meets Tate Odder and feels the immediate attraction towards him, but there is only one problem and that is his young age.
Tate Odder is a young man who came to the States to start over and his contract with the Assassins was a good start. He has lost his parents and younger sister in a car accident and is still trying to survive the lost. When he meets Audrey, his life is finally looking brighter and he is determined to proof to her that they belong together.
I loved the tension and the huge attraction between Audrey and Tate, although I wanted to smack Audrey in the head from time to time. She had a lot of insecurities and she had to deal with that first before she could start believing in true love and the man of her dreams. Tate was a sweetheart and really did everything to proof his intentions and love for her. I also loved seeing Elli, Shea, Fallon and Lucas from the previous books and to see how their life is going.
Toni Aleo has written another winner with this novel, it has great characters, a fabulous hockey team and a good storyline. I’m definitely going to follow this author and hopefully see more of those gorgeous hockey players, because they are quite a few singles.”
