BOOK REVIEW...Empty Net (Assassins #3) by Toni Aleo

Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.

Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.

Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanley Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.

But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.
Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net?

The third in the "Assasins" series, Toni Aleo did not let me down and continued her miraculous legacy of foretelling the lives of the "Assassins" hockey team.

The story is fresh, thank god, and the characters are fun and easy to relate to. I tend to have a hard time keeping an interest in a series since at one point or another one of the books kills it for me but so far all three books that have been released have not disappointed me yet. :)

"Empty Net" focuses on the lives of Audrey Parker and Tate Odder. It is perhaps the most emotionally invested I spent in a book in its series and for a couple of reasons in which I highly suggest you pick up and read this book for yourself.

I loved the chemistry and sense of camaraderie formed along Tate and Audrey and how their pasts help bring them together to heal, grow, and move forth with their lives AND ALTOGETHER allow themselves to be open to love...

I'm now curious as to the direction Ms. Aleo is going to take her "Assassins" series and I CANNOT WAIT!!

My Rating:

-Overall : 9
-Plot : 9
-Writing : 9
-Characters : 9
-Cover : 9
