Empty Net (Assassins #3)
by Toni Aleo (Goodreads Author)
Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.
Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanley Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.
But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.
Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net?
First off. Tate is Adorable and made it onto my book boyfriend list and will be featured in the future. With this book so far Tate is my favorite player but Audrey however is not my favorite. I loved her in the second book (Trying to Score) but in the first half of this book I seriously wanted to punch her to stop the whining and self doubt and self deprecation.
However, she did she redeem her self in the later portion of the book but it was touch in go with her for awhile if it was not for my love for Tate's heart I dunno... I always believe if an author can make me aggravated by a character then they have done their job because they evoked emotions good or bad.
At the end of the day I love this series and so look forward to reading more in the series. Tate's love and passion shine through the book and you are routing for him the whole way to see if he gets his HEA.
I give this book 4 thumbs up!
