For the past few weeks I’ve been indulging in some very hot hockey romance stories with each one being better than the previous one. When Toni asked if I wanted to read the draft of Blue Lines – the 4th story in the Assassins Series – my answer was simply, duh!
I’m notorious for ditching in the middle of a series especially if I have to wait eons for the next book to come out, but I can safely say that Toni Aleo’s latest novel has me anxious for more. I’ve never fully invested in a group of characters the way I have in the Assassins Series. It doesn’t matter who the story is about, the supporting cast adds enough diversity and intrigue that you are left with a thirst to know more.
Blue Lines had me from page one. The prologue was intense and to be honest I’m one that avoids prologues, but this one hooks you and in a few short pages you feel the connection between the characters.
My intent, when I started reading, was to read a chapter and go to bed. At 3 am and at only 65% I had to put it down reluctantly. With only four hours of sleep, I was back reading. I simply couldn’t get enough of Erik and Piper.
As I sit here, I want to tell you everything. I want to spill on the emotions that Toni’s characters are experiencing. I want to make you drool over Erik and the sex appeal that he has and make you wish you were the fun-loving and free-spirited Piper, but I can’t. I will say that Blue Lines is without a doubt a hat trick (nice hockey pun). I couldn’t read it fast enough, yet wanted to savor every word and when I finished I was excited for Erik and Piper and their journey.
Blue Lines is sexy and riveting with the perfect combination of love and lust.
I wish I could offer you a cover for Blue Lines, but you'll have to wait until the cover reveal on April 15th.

Lost in You
Ryan Stone is a less than average teenager. He doesn’t have fancy clothes. He doesn’t carry around the latest smartphone and he definitely doesn’t have an MP3 player. Instead, he goes to school, does his chores and dreams of a new life away from Brookfield where he’s expected to follow in his blue collar family’s footsteps.
Hadley Carter is America’s Pop Princess. A successful recording artist living her dream with a sold-out tour and a handful of Grammy’s there isn’t much that she wants for, except love. But finding love on the road is near impossible when all she longs for are romantic dinners, a nighttime stroll on the beach and holding hands with someone who isn’t going to exploit her.
When a chance encounter introduces Ryan to Hadley, will he be like her adoring fans looking for a way in, or will it be Hadley who pursues Ryan even though it might cost her the only career she's ever known.
Lost in You is a story about following your dreams, taking risks and getting lost in love.

I Am Not Junco, Book 4
by J. A. Huss
Release date: April 1, 2013
Two years have passed since Inanna stole Junco away from Lucan. Two years of unimaginable pain. Two years of isolation, mutilation and torture. Two years of fear and loneliness in a morph tank. And that’s not something you just get over, even if you are psycho-assassin, Junco Coot.
Now Junco has to learn to live with the consequences. Her Siblings are suspicious and angry, half her team is dead, Tier is wreaking death and destruction, Lucan is holding his secrets close, and she is spiraling out of control.
There is only one partnership that matters anymore – only one person she will trust and take direction from – and only one way out of the Hell she’s been sentenced to.
Junco is tired of fighting and death. She’s had enough and this time she means to end it – once and for all.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).
She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

As many of you have seen today, I lost my brother, Ryan, on Valentine's day, 2011, when he lost his battle with cystic fibrosis. Needless to day, the 14th now has a different meaning for our family.
Last year my girls went to their dad and asked that they not get presents and instead a donation be made in memory of their uncle. We decided as a family that this would be our yearly tradition, in addition, to participating in the annual Great Strides walk as a family.
Today I launched my $1.00 campaign. If you haven't purchased, know someone who hasn't read, or want to gift Forever My Girl, to someone, I'll donate $1.00 from each book sale through February, in memory of my brother.
If a paperback is purchased, $5.00.
If you purchase for the Beaumont store - 100%
Many of you asked how you can donate since you already own Forever My Girl. You can make a donation toward Team Ryley ~ Our cf family Great Strides team. In case you're wondering, Ryley, is a combination of Ryan and Ashley, my sister who also has cf.
If you prefer to make donation direct to the foundation, you can fill out this form. If you'd be so kind as to click the Memory/Honor button and include my brother's name, Ryan McLaughlin (at the bottom), my family would be forever grateful.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
