Blue Lines by Toni Aleo

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.
