She was smart, the sexiest thing he'd ever touched, but she disappeared into the night. 


Titan Group was recruiting for their Delta team. They wanted ghosts. No ties. Nothing personal. The best of the best who could live off the grid and surface when commanded. Trace was the perfect recruit. Damaged. Heroic. Nothing to lose. 


But when Trace's one-time fling becomes his high-value target during a black ops job, the lines blur between her rescue mission and saving himself.

From Liliana Hart’s New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by New York Times bestselling author Cristin Harber... 

When Luke Brenner takes an off-the-books job on the MacKenzie-Delta joint task force, he has one goal: shut down sex traffickers on his personal hunt for retribution. This operation brings him closer than he’s ever been to avenge his first love, who was taken, sold, and likely dead. 

Madeleine Mercier is the daughter of an infamous cartel conglomerate. Their family bleeds money, they sell pleasure, they sell people. She knows no other life, sees no escape, except for one. Maddy is the only person who can take down Papa, when every branch of law enforcement in every country, is on her father’s payroll. 

It’s evil. To want to ruin, to murder, her family. But that’s what she is. Ruined for a life outside of destroying her father. She can’t feel arousal. Has never been kissed. Never felt anything other than disgust for the world that she perpetuates. Until she clashes with a possible mercenary who gives her hope. 

The hunter versus the virgin. The predator and his prey. When forced together, can enemies resist the urge to run away or destroy one another?

A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold 

Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible. 

Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs. 

Meets Sweet and Sassy 

Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore. 

Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancĂ©, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man. 

Game Changer 

Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her. 

Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies. 

And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.

My best friend is married.
Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.

Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband decide to finally go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.

Of course I say yes.

What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone. 

Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help. 

Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbeque because, like I said, he’s a jerk.

He always has to be the life of the party.
He’s also arrogant.
And a playboy.
I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.

Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.

Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.

But after two weeks what I didn’t expect to discover is that I’d been wrong about him. 
That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s actually quite charming.
That his arrogance is really confidence. 
And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.

So yes, I’d misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although I might still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.
And I want more of him.

The question is—does he want more of me?

Graphics from Author's Facebook page
Tess Winters is starting her life over in Chicago after a bad break up that also took everything she had built up in her career with it. But she is now living close to her best friend, Fiona, and her young family. She is working towards a new business dream., and she is starting to move on. She is scheduled to babysit Fiona's son while the couple go on a long awaited tropical honeymoon.

Color her surprised when she finds out that Fiona's husband has requested a co-babysitter who will now be staying with her and little Max. And he is someone that seems to thrive on making her angry and she sees him as the sexy jerk best friend of her best friend's husband. She thinks he is arrogant, cocky, and a manwhore. He thinks she is hot, but she has always been uptight and judgmental around him.

Nick Carrington is handsome, funny, successful, and bossy. But he never really corrected the other adverse opinions she had of him and his personal life. Even though he has been attracted to Tess from the beginning, she always had a boyfriend, so it did not really matter. And he does have up guards to protect his heart and he has reason to. He works hard and plays hard.

They are set up by their friends as adversaries in adventures in babysitting. But as they develop a routine of taking care of Max and actually getting to know each other, Tess begins to see that Nick has a lot of good qualities and there is a lot she just assumed. And Nick is even more fascinated by the woman that caught his eye and likes her funnier and friendlier personality too. They talk. They laugh. They support each other. They have oodles of sexual tension and chemistry. So their baby sitting morphs from nannies-by-day and secret-lovers-by-night.

They challenge each other. They battle for control, but know when to give in. They spark passion and surprising feelings in the other. But what happens with their little vacation from reality is over and their friends return?

But she has trust issues and for all intents and purposes Nick should just be her rebound guy. And he has never done attachments or real relationships. They actually scare themselves and each other with the situation they seem to be sliding into without a safety net. And they both have a lot going on in their lives due to work issues and some surrounding drama.

I really liked these two. Nick was really a total sweetheart who deep down just wanted to be loved and accepted. He was all about taking risks to reap the rewards. But emotions and relationships area foreign arena for him. But with that being said, Nick could also be totally swoon-worthy. And she was sassy and smart, and was not afraid to challenge him. They brought out more in each other than expected. I enjoyed getting their dual points of view. In the beginning it was important due to their conflicts and later on it was needed to really understand their growing attachment and fears. 

I liked the side characters in their group Fiona, Ethan, little Max, and Jace. They had an interesting stories going on in the background. I would like to know more about Jace especially and Nick also has a younger brother, Lucas. The group was tight knit and their relationships and history were well developed.

This was feisty, funny, sexy, and sweet. It was fast-paced and kept me interested. It made me laugh and touched my heart. I totally fell for the characters and hope we see them again.

I was gifted a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
Tess Winters is starting over in Chicago after losing everything she had worked for. While she is settling in and beginning her new business venture, she volunteers to watcher her best friend’s son while she and her husband go on a much needed tropical vacation.

The only problem is that Tess isn’t babysitting alone. For two weeks, she will have to co-parent with her nemesis, Nick. Nick and Ethan are best friends, and since Tess and Fiona are besties as well, Tess has to put up with Nick’s brand of jerk often. Normally, she can put up with it for a few hours and then pretend he doesn’t exist, but 2 weeks is a long time to have to play nice.

Playing nice quickly turns to more as Nick and Tess take the time to actually get to know one another rather than instantly picking fights or staying in neutral corners. And once the walls start coming down the chemistry between them is off the charts. From hate to lust to love, these two feel it all.

They are careful though to keep their attraction under wraps in front of Max. Watching both of them as they work together to take care of Max adds a sweet aspect to the story, as does Nick’s natural tendency to swoop in and solve problems.

When it becomes clear that Tess needs help to follow her new dreams, he does what he can to help her out. As it becomes clear that there is more involved in her business venture than initially planned, he continues to try to keep her safe and protected while still helping her meet her goals.

Both characters have issues from their pasts that are unresolved. This gives them a common ground but also means they both have triggers. There were times I wished they could connect dots to make things easier for them. There were other times I wanted one or the other to be able to see what was really going on.
But overall this was a fun read with a lot going on. I was constantly engaged in the plot, wondering how the details would all add up in the end. The side characters added another level of interest to the story and had me curious about their own stories.

A desperate father. A lonely ranger. Unexpected love that can’t be denied.

Jason Kellerman’s life revolves around his eight-year-old daughter. Teenage curiosity with his best friend led to Maggie’s birth, her mother tragically dying soon after. Insistent on raising his daughter himself, he was disowned by his wealthy family and has worked tirelessly to support Maggie—even bringing her west on a dream vacation. Only twenty-five, Jason hasn’t had time to even think about romance. So the last thing he expects is to question his sexuality after meeting an undeniably attractive park ranger.

Ben Hettler’s stuck. He loves working in the wild under Montana’s big sky, but at forty-one, his love life is non-existent, his ex-boyfriend just married and adopted, and Ben’s own dream of fatherhood feels impossibly out of reach. He’s attracted to Jason, but what’s the point? Besides the age difference and skittish Jason’s lack of experience, they live thousands of miles apart. Ben wants more than a meaningless fling.

Then a hunted criminal takes Maggie hostage, throwing Jason and Ben together in a desperate and dangerous search through endless miles of mountain forest. If they rescue Maggie against all odds, can they build a new family together and find a place to call home?

Road to the Sun is a May-December gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring adventure, angst, coming out, sexual discovery, and of course a happy ending.

Once upon a time in Romancelandia, I heard much talk about how readers should expect a slew of stories with hot and heroic park rangers in the near future. Whether or not this will be the case is something that only time will tell, but Road to the Sun is the first time I’ve read a romance where one of the main characters fits that description. It’s also my first exposure to author Keira Andrews. While I enjoyed the setting and pairing a good deal, the background story is the star of this one. Unfortunately, that meant the romance portion left me a little wanting.

When teenaged Jason Kellerman decided to raise his baby daughter himself after the tragic death of her mother, everyone told him he was too young. Even his well-to-do parents fought for custody of Maggie because they didn’t approve of the choice. Now twenty-five, Jason’s hard work and frugal living mark his unwavering commitment to his daughter, but he’s left very little time to think about himself let alone date. So when they go on her dream vacation to Glacier National Park, questioning his sexuality because of a friendly park ranger wasn’t part of the plan. After spending nearly half his life with his now married ex-boyfriend, Ben Hettler is forty-one and alone. He loves his career and being in Montana, but the prospects of fulfilling his dream of raising a family with a man he loves are hopelessly low. Jason certainly catches his eye, but there’s a laundry list of reasons why getting together could never be work long term.

If you’re like me and forget blurbs between reading them and reading the books, the prologue of Road to the Sun makes it crystal clear that something bad is going to happen at some point in the story. What starts as a simple and often cute meet-and-flirt between Jason and Ben, pushed forward largely by Jason’s precocious daughter, suddenly takes a dramatic left turn when Maggie is kidnapped by a murderer on the lam. While this very easily could have turned into an overdramatic sequence soaking up a third of the pages, it was so well written that I couldn’t put the book down during it. Not only was it a gripping plot, it served well to establish a powerful bond through adversity between the men.

If only this had been the end of the drama, and the guys could have focused on building on that bond to develop a wonderful romantic love, I would have floved this story, but there was a lot more drama to come. Road to the Sun really is more Jason’s story than Ben’s, so the additional drama revolves around both his realization that his admiration of men is more than that and his devotion to Maggie. And it’s that devotion that makes Jason such a compelling character. During the aftermath of her kidnapping, Jason’s raw emotions were incredibly and powerfully realistic, even to someone like me who doesn’t have any kids. But this devotion also causes Jason to have some bad reactions to things at other places in the story, some of which really didn’t come across well to me. Unfortunately, I can’t go into details without spoiling, but if you pay attention to blurb, you might be able to figure out some of what the later drama is on your own.

Ben, too, is a good character, a rational and supportive rock during Jason’s turmoil. I wasn’t entirely convinced, though, about why Ben falls hard for Jason (other than, of course, the fact that he wants to be a dad.) The bulk of the novel lasts no more than a couple of weeks, and much of this time is dealing with the kidnapping and its aftermath, so while I understood the emotional bond that formed because of the traumatic events, I didn’t quite understand so much how that translated into the romantic bond. That being said, the epilogue to this story is all kinds of warm fuzzies and puppies and kitties to make a perfect ending. It would have been even better if I had felt the love more before I got to the epilogue.

The only other issue I had is one that I often have with books containing children who are more than bit characters. Maggie is supposed to be eight. Rarely did her character read that way though. Most of the time, I thought she was more like eleven or twelve. Granted, a lot of this was her precociousness—she has an unreal amount of knowledge about the park, for example, to the point where I was half expecting something to come out of her mouth that Park Ranger Ben didn’t know. But then there were episodes where she acted more like she was four. Eight may be the average of those, but that’s not good enough when it comes to making a child character feel like a real character instead of a convenient plot-driving element.

While Road to the Sun didn’t quite convince me of the romantic bond, it is certainly a recommendable read. I have seen Keira Andrews’s books in the past, but for one reason or another, the timing never worked for me to read one of them before now. This one definitely makes me interested in reading the rest.

The author and/or publisher generously provided me a complimentary copy of Road to the Sun in exchange for this fair and honest review.

TWENTY-TWO (Assassins #11.5)

Release Date May 22, 2017

When Lucas Brooks was traded to the Nashville Assassins over a decade ago, he was a brash, brawling hothead without an anchor.

Well, four kids and a smokin' hot wife will weigh you down real fast, but Lucas wouldn't change a minute of his happily ever after. 

During an epic, end-of-season quest for the Cup, changes appear on the horizon, and suddenly, there's a plot twist in Lucas's fairy tale.
This is a novella about one of our favorite Assassins couples, Lucas and Fallon Brooks, who we watched fight and fall in love in Trying to Score (Assassins#2). Lucas has been playing for the Assassins for ten years now but he is getting older and his body does not bounce back like it used to. He and Fallon are busy with their careers and four kids. But Their life in Nashville is good.

Their oldest, Aiden, is now seventeen and has some great opportunities on the horizon. The kids are all growing up and keep them on their toes. Fallon keeps it all together while also running a successful business of her own.  But both of them are struggling with their babies growing up.

Lucas and the Assassins are making their final push for the cup and can taste it. But as the players mature, there is more potential for injuries and change. Competition is fierce, and nothing is predictable or a sure thing. How will Lucas and some of his team mates fare? 

I loved checking with Lucas, Fallon, the kids, Audrey, Tate, Ellie, Shea, Vaughan,  Brie, and  Jensen. It is also a great transition novella for young Aiden as we have the opportunity to see him start looking towards his future. Hopefully we will see more of him as he matures. 

This was a short, sweet, crazy slice of life for a busy sports family. 
It brings change, challenges, and some surprises. But it shows the love that these characters have for each other. Assassins fans will enjoy this "little bit more" with this group. And I am looking forward to the next Assassins book, In The Crease. I just cannot seem to get enough of this series and these beloved characters. 

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Twenty-Two offers a fun, fast glimpse at the crazy lives of Lucas and Fallon Brooks during the playoff series as they deal with team travel, four crazy kids, and their own futures.

Lucas is getting older and beginning to feel his age in lingering aches and pains. But he is determined to play through, even as he wonders if it is time for some of his teammates to call it rather than continue to stress about injuries. Chasing another Cup, his focus is on the Assassins and his teammates.

Fallon has her hands full with their gaggle of kids and the winery. Knowing the kids are happy and settled in Nashville, she loves the life they have built, but knows things are bound to change. Their oldest, Aiden, is 17 and facing his own decisions about the future -- decisions that will change everything Fallon and Lucas thought his path would take.

There was one part of this novella that truly surprised me and left me feeling just a little bit nostalgic. But while I was a little down about that event, ultimately I finished the story feeling a bright hope for each of the characters in the Assassin’s world.
This was a fun return to the Assassin’s family. Many favorites pop in, either at game time or as the extended family gathers for various events. I always look forward to seeing what is next for this family oriented team and that is no exception as I finished Twenty-Two. I can’t wait for the next full length novel in the series and seeing more from this team.

Fallon held a half-eaten snow cone in one hand and her phone in the other with one earbud in as she watched Aiden rush down the ice, the puck under his control. He caught the defense on a change, somewhat of a breakaway, before he shot the puck hard toward the net, hitting the back of it with ease.
“Woot!” Audrey called from beside her.
“Yes!” Fallon fist-pumped as the girls stood by the glass, bouncing up and down in their way too big Brooks jerseys. Looking over to Asher, who was on his computer, she said, “Your brother scored.”
“Attaboy!” he called out, but he didn’t look up, which only made Fallon shake her head as she watched Aiden hug his teammates. “What’s the score on Daddy’s game?”
“Two-zip, Assassins,” she said as she waved her hand in the air when Aiden looked up at her, like he always did. Like he always had, and a part of her was excited about his future. But the other part just made her heart ache. When he was in college, would he be able to see her?
And in the NHL? Crap, she knew he wouldn’t be able to see her then.
“This is game four, right? They win, they go to round three?”
“Yes, baby. Emery! Get off there! Come eat this snow cone. It’s melting.”
Emery continued to climb on the rail of the bleachers as she looked up. “I don’t want it.”
“Then come get it and throw it away.”
She pouted. “I don’t want to.”
“Emery Elaine,” Fallon warned. “Get over here. Right now.”
“I want my daddy!”
“That’s new,” Audrey commented as Emery stomped up the stairs, her little brow
“That’s Emery, who has stayed close to her dad every moment he’s been home,” she muttered as Emery stopped in front of her. “Do you want that tail wore out?”
“No, ma’am.”
“Then what do you need to do?”
“Throw away the snow cone and watch my mouth?”
“Exactly,” she said, handing the snow cone to her trying child before looking down at her phone to see that the Assassins were on the penalty kill. They were probably playing the best hockey she had seen them play in her many years of supporting and loving the team. She was excited, but her gut was in a knot, not only for the Assassins but also for Aiden. Because across the rink, she could see the Bellevue representatives, watching her little boy with intent.
“Aiden is playing great,” Audrey said then, and Fallon nodded.
“I know, the best he’s ever played. Just like the Assassins.”
Audrey beamed. “We’ll close out tonight and then get a nice break before round three.
They need it.”

“They do.” Looking down at her phone, Fallon watched as the second period ended, and she let out a long sigh. One more period. Twenty more minutes, and if the Assassins could hold the Hawks, they’d move on to round three. She couldn’t believe it. This would be the first time the Assassins had swept anyone in the play-offs, and according to Facebook, Elli was coming out of her skin.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.

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?
