Editorial Reviews


Praise for Toni Aleo’s Nashville Assassins romances
“Aleo melts the ice and hits it into the net with her Assassins series.”—Award-winning author Jami Davenport
Taking Shots is really the whole package. You get romance, humor, steamy sex, drama, and then it all wraps up with a great conclusion. I am amazed that this is Toni’s first book. She has come out in a huge way. I can’t wait to read more from her. Don’t hesitate for a moment to grab this book.”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
“A little steamy, a little heartbreaking, and a whole lot of fanning yourself are in order this time around, readers. Are your cheeks feeling a little pink yet? Get used to the feeling.”—Dreaming in the Pages, on Trying to Score
Empty Net is an honest, heartwarming, endearing story. . . . Toni Aleo doesn’t just write a story. She gives you the ability to experience the journey of her characters right along with them. Her stories are enveloped with passion, emotion, humor, love; and let me tell you, that girl knows how to write a sex scene that just makes you sweat!”—Guilty Pleasures Book Review
“Sexy and riveting . . . the perfect combination of love and lust.”USA Today bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, on Blue Lines
“Funny, charming, sweet, sexy . . . [Falling for the Backup] has everything you want in a story.”—Blushing Reader

My name is Toni Aleo!
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I have been told I have anger issues, but I think it's cause of my intense love for hockey!
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena's glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn't pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son's hockey games, my daughter's dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life...probably Belle, and did I mention I love hockey?

What can I say beyond the title of my review? I'll explain it. This storyline had promise - two wounded hearts looking for a home find one with the other. But the characters and their language destroyed it for me. As a child of the '60s, I'm generally not offended by much. But these characters gratuitously drop F-bombs in almost every sentence. The only good time is a drunken one. The emotions are over the top, with the characters "yelling", "shouting", etc. Then there's our heroine, who is more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century. Her defining goal in life is to get pregnant so she "can give a child to a man". Yep. She's not dreaming of a baby for herself, but as a means to purchase the affection of a man, just about any man. She's in an abusive relationship with Levi, who she is certain must love her even if he doesn't realize it. She rationalized rough sex (choking!), verbal insults (no one else will want you you fat bitch so you should be grateful to have sex with me), and repeated cheating right in front of her. While taking this, our heroine cooked, cleaned, and had sex on demand. Oh, and Levi is insanely jealous as well. Enter our hero, eight years younger but infinitely more adult. She fights developing a relationship with him because of his age and - drum roll - because she can't give him a child. Since this is a romance novel, they get their HEA. Do I recommend this book or author? NO!!! That is, unless you prefer your characters hard (except for the hero), coarse, and very immature. If you do, it's a winner.

I'm sorry to be such a buzz kill with all this 5-star party going on and I hope Toni will forgive me for lowering her ACR but I feel like I need to be honest here and give some criticism which I hope will be more constructive and less hurtful. And please forgive me if my English is less than perfect, it's not my first language...

Firts of all, let me tell you how awesome it is that somebody wrote the WHOLE series about my favorite sport. It's hard to find a good romance about hot hockey players so I'm always happy to get those books whenever they come out. I liked the first book, Taking Shots, even if I had some small issues with it and I completely adored the second one, Trying to Score. I felt like Toni really grew up as an author between those two and I found myself anxiously awaiting release of her next book.

Empty Net is romantic as ever with all the new and old protagonists falling in love, starting their new families or even having silly arguments over nothing and then making up. We get to see how Elli and Shea or Fallon and Lucas are doing but most important of all, we get to see Fallon's sister Audrey fighting for her own Happily Ever After.

What I love about Toni's book is that you can see that she worked really hard on those stories. She never overlooks any details and all the characters have their own unique personality and all those special traits that make them, well, special. I loved that Audrey couldn't sing if her life depended on it and Tate's gap between his teeth was just adorable.

But. I felt like there was just too much unnecessary stuff which could be at least reduced in half. For example, some love references. Everybody just loved everybody and everybody was beautiful and gorgeous. And it was everywhere.

The story line had potential, but failed to live up to it. I got about a third of the way through before I couldn't force myself to continue, even while skipping endless pages of internal dialogue.

Lots and lots and LOTS of internal dialogue, repeating the same thing again and again in different ways.

Developing characters usually involves them .. You know ... Developing.

The point where she tells the loser ex that she loves him and will take his cheating behind back if he is willing to commit was the final straw. Earlier in the book she realised she didn't miss him, but rather the space he filled in his life, and for her to revert back was a disgrace. Let alone her mention of how she didn't enjoy his need to strangle her during sex.

Gotta say I was looking forward to this and was a bit disappointed. It was an all in all great story, however, the delivery was lacking. The constant repetitiveness of 'im not good enough' and just plain ole second guessing and stupidity of the heroine ruined it for me. That behaviour made it hard to identify with her. Most of the time I was left wanting to smack some sense into her thick skull. Especially when it came to Levi. It was just too much. Next time put less complaining and idiotic behavior in...

There are certain expectations that you have when you open a book. All the open mind nonsense aside, I had expectations. I previously read Taking Shots and while I didn't love it, I thought it was fairly decent if a not a bit run-on. I came into Empty net expecting some more wordiness from the author, but hoping it wouldn't be too repetitive. OH LORD ABOVE WHY?????????? I got so sick of the h/H and the stupid, " I want my HEA, I want my HEA, oh I can give you that HEA, oh but you're not what my HEA expected, but I am your HEA"! I normally am not one to use expletives, but this had me cursing something fierce. Audrey spent 75% of the book complaining. Actually whining is better word. And Tate I liked up until he really started pursuing Audrey because really he could do so much better and was using his grief like a crutch, but I digress. Now for Lucas and Audrey's sister, I wish they would have bit a bullet...a big one that exploded into a mushroom cloud. Hey you're happy and everyone knows it now get a life and stop butting into someone's relationship. Their constant presence in every factor of Audrey and Tate's relationship bordered on codependent, and disturbing. And Tate didn't need to explain himself to anyone except Audrey, who is crazy anyway. I would much rather a story where the heroine actually learned to be dependent on herself without the aid of a man. It was like her whole happy existence rested solely on Tate which is not only intimidating but psychologically disturbing. Listen if you want to read a book where a desperate heroine jumps from bed to bed crying and wondering why she can't have her Happily Ever After, and a disillusioned youth who just wants a steady source of love fight this crazy woman then this is your book. By all means buy and read away. If you expect a little more for your money may I direct you to the search box once again. Because this is not your stop.
