Blog Tour Review & Giveaway!- Overtime (Assassins, #7) by Toni Aleo

Overtime Tour Banner
Title:  Overtime (Assassins, #7)
Author:  Toni Aleo
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: August 10th 2015
Plot:   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.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via Toni's assistant in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

First impressions before going into this:


Jordie really f*#ked up in Wanting to Forget, the introduction to him and Kacey. I was doubtful and a bit pensive as to how Toni was going to redeem his character, but luckily, by the end of reading Overtime I was finally won over. *cue in fireworks*

And after:

Having royally screwed up in his love and career life, Jordie Thomas finds himself dwindling in a downward spiral, and in need of a major wake up call and reality check.

Enter- Kacey King,

a now decorated Olympic champion, still picking up the pieces after being abruptly dismissed by Jordie, and finds herself taking up a job with the Nashville Assassins.

There, as you would say, things get tricky but interesting, as both are forced to confront unresolved conflicts and issues.

But with Jordie’s past plaguing him and Kacey trying to move on from the man who stomped all over her heart, things will not be as smooth sailing for them… and neither will be Jordie’s future as part of the Nashville Assassins roster.

Author Toni Aleo really raises the bar, eyebrows, and expectations in this latest installment of her patented series.

I was very fearful at first, but while reading it, I wanted to slap some sense into Jordie, and in the end, changed my tune into cheering him on.

As for Kacey, I admired her. I really got her feelings and reservations about Jordie and her pensiveness about giving him a second chance after he let her down.

But most of all, I LOVE LOVED seeing and catching up with the previous Assassins characters and King family. That was one of the biggest highlights for me. I was literally in la-la land with glee and happiness.

Anyway, can’t wait for what’s up next in this series!! Great job, Toni!!
