Toni Aleo’s sexy new eBook original novella featuring the Nashville Assassins will have you believing in the power of love at first sight . . . and second sight . . . and third.
After serving as a dutiful bridesmaid in the wedding from hell, Aynslee Shaw just wants to slink home to Nashville and forget the whole trip. That is until the hottest guy she’s ever seen is seated next to her on the flight and charms her with his easy laugh and killer smile. But just when she thinks things are getting good, he vanishes, leaving Aynslee wondering, was that guy the one? And did she just let him slip through her fingers?
Former superstar goalie Jordan Ryan is back on the ice—finally. After a crippling knee injury that had him wondering if he’d ever play pro hockey again, he’s got his full attention on rebuilding his career. So a pretty—okay, beautiful—girl on a plane shouldn’t be a distraction. But Jordan is very, very distracted. And when Aynslee crosses his path again, he’s not sure any job in the world is worth missing his second chance with a woman like her.

Great Read
May 3rd, 2015
Was a great read even though it was short.....but I did find the epilogue on line & was able to finish that as well. Jordan's career is on the line he needs to be a starting goalie. Taking interviews where ever he can get them puts him on a collision course with Aynslee a grade 3 teacher. Sitting net to one another on a plane is their first meeting & an enjoyable one at that. After spilling her coffee on her during the flight it breaks the tensions between them. He likes her, she likes him but neither can speak up so off they go on their own ways only to meet again at a Starbucks where he eventually runs away again. After another chance meeting in the park Aynslee isn't taking any chances any more & lets him know in no uncertain terms that she's interested. Sparks fly. Great story can't wait to read next installment & unfortunately I have to wait until June to read Phillip's story. This series is great & what makes it better is that it's a hockey series. Definite recommend & re-read at a later date when I have the whole series.
