Series: Assassins Series #7
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Down and out with an injury keeping him away from the game, Assassins’ defenseman Jordie Thomas lives for the blades of his skates on the ice and the feeling of oblivion off it. With no choice but to heal, he’s forced away from the sport that runs through his veins. With everything at stake and darkness setting in, he quickly finds himself spiraling even further out of control. As his life begins to come crashing down around him and his contract with the Nashville Assassins on the line, he’s given an ultimatum. Ready or not, Jordie is forced to face his past, the fears that consume him, and the one woman he let walk away.
Kacey King had her professional dreams come true, yet her heart was battered and broken. With an Olympic gold medal around her neck, she’s ready to look forward to the future but without the one man she wanted in it. She’s missing the key pieces of her heart she left months ago with the only person who was capable of destroying it, causing her to falter in all her plans to move on.
>In the game of life, there are winners and losers, and neither Jordie nor Kacey want to be on the losing bench. If only Jordie could convince Kacey he’s a changed man and that he wants her right by his side as his MVP for the biggest and best parts of a life they build together. With emotions running high and the game on the line, can two proud people find happiness with each other, or will their hearts and souls be left in the cold? Will they see that sometimes having someone by your side who knows the good, bad, and broken is better than going it alone and losing everything through the back of the net? They are out of time on the game clock and fighting for the win of their lives.
But overtime was made for an Assassin like Jordie.
Did I ever think that I would love an Assassin more than Shea? No I didn't BUT Jordie certainly has stolen my heart and the top Assassin spot that is a certainty. This book is an absolute gem!! I cried, laughed, shouted and cried some more but loved every single word. Jordie is adorable, yes he has problems, yes he can be a d-bag but when he loves he loves with everything he has. However he doesn't believe he is good enough to be loved in return. Can he let down his walls, can he let Kacey in? Will Kacey want to be let in? So many questions but only by reading this amazing book will you get your answers. Toni Aleo you get better with each book, you manage to keep the series fresh, different, exciting and you always leave me eagerly awaiting the next book. 5 wonderful stars are not nearly enough for this book!! ~ Rosie
