BOOK REVIEW..[ARC] Trying to Score (Assassins #2) by Toni Aleo
A great book for a sports fan -- especially one involving hockey. If you love the Assassin Series, then you'll love Jaci Burton's Play by Play Series.
The second book in the Assassin Series, Trying to Score, is a steamy novel that follows the lives of Lucas Brooks and Fallon Parker. How do you describe the relationship between Mr. Brooks and Ms. Parker? One word -- EXPLOSIVE. Between Fallon's outbursts and jealousy, Lucas devotion to her, and the crazy sexual chemistry -- everything just adds up to combustion.
Fallon was how you say -- a little twit. Sometimes I just wanted to slap her across the face -- especially that scene where she breaks up with Lucas because of something she THINKS happened in before. Come on woman, unless you have the proof -- get over it. But then again, after reading into the story I could see her reasons. Over time though, Fallon does grow up from her childish ways.
Contrary to Fallon, I admired Lucas, a recovering alcoholic, and his drive to stay sober and reform his life. I'm also close with my family so I adored the close bond he shared with his rents. Honestly, I think he could've done better than her but hey... you can't help who you fall in love with.
