BOOK REVIEW...Taking Shots (Assassins #1) by Toni Aleo
Toni Aleo, you have officially become one of my favorite authors. I REALLY ADORED this book. It had everything I wanted: a sexy sports stud, sensual romance, "realness", and heart.
I could find myself gravitating and relating to Elli Fisher's character and her insecurities that everyone has at times. She was "REAL" and wasn't like many of the fabricated girl leads I tend to read in stories.
I also really loved hottie with a golden body hockey player Shea Adler. Shea Adler was the typical charismatic jock who's world revolved around hockey, drinking, and women.
That all changes when he meets the captivating Elli and is instantly taken with her. Elli isn't like anyone Shea's ever met and Shea has it on his agenda to prove it to her even though she doesn't believe it to work out between them.
It's all about "Taking Shots" and taking chances...
SO RANDOM THOUGHTS:
The plot and pacing of the book was nicely put together and very fluid.
The characters were both likeable and at times I found myself swooning over Shea and totally rooting for Elli.
I'M SO GLAD I PICKED UP THIS BOOK. THANK YOU LOVESWEPT VIA NETGALLERY FOR ALLOWING ME TO READ "TAKING SHOTS" AND OF COURSE IN TURN FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
