Misadventures With A Rookie by Toni Aleo is the HOT HOCKEY romance you’ve been waiting for! AVAILABLE NOW!
Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?
This book is so well-written!
It is a fun, yet emotionally-packed novel that is a guaranteed page-turner. With witty, and pun-filled banter, what’s not to love? Plus, the hero, Gus, personifies all the qualities we wish for our own Prince Charming. He’s sexy, charming, loyal, determined and loves our girl Bo something fierce – weird first name and all!
Gus is a cocky hockey player trying to make it in the big league. Bo is avoiding her past in a different town, hoping hard work would atone for her sins. Neither expect the other or the fireworks that spark between them. What originally began as a “one and done” turns into a relationship worth pursuing, but will Bo trust August with her secrets? Will she trust that he won’t hurt her?
The couples’ misadventures are funny, but tie into the plot perfectly. You won’t love another NA couple the way you love Bo & Gus.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
About the Author:
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
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?
