BLOG TOUR!! Overtime by Toni Aleo!!

Overtime by Toni Aleo
Series: Assassins Series #7
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Down and out with an injury keeping him away from the game, Assassins’ defenseman Jordie Thomas lives for the blades of his skates on the ice and the feeling of oblivion off it. With no choice but to heal, he’s forced away from the sport that runs through his veins. With everything at stake and darkness setting in, he quickly finds himself spiraling even further out of control. As his life begins to come crashing down around him and his contract with the Nashville Assassins on the line, he’s given an ultimatum. Ready or not, Jordie is forced to face his past, the fears that consume him, and the one woman he let walk away.

Kacey King had her professional dreams come true, yet her heart was battered and broken. With an Olympic gold medal around her neck, she’s ready to look forward to the future but without the one man she wanted in it. She’s missing the key pieces of her heart she left months ago with the only person who was capable of destroying it, causing her to falter in all her plans to move on.
>In the game of life, there are winners and losers, and neither Jordie nor Kacey want to be on the losing bench. If only Jordie could convince Kacey he’s a changed man and that he wants her right by his side as his MVP for the biggest and best parts of a life they build together. With emotions running high and the game on the line, can two proud people find happiness with each other, or will their hearts and souls be left in the cold? Will they see that sometimes having someone by your side who knows the good, bad, and broken is better than going it alone and losing everything through the back of the net? They are out of time on the game clock and fighting for the win of their lives.

But overtime was made for an Assassin like Jordie.

My Review:
I have been waiting for Jordie's story since "Wanting to Forget." I knew Jordie's story would be different from the others. He is struggling with his life choices. You got a glimpse of his issues in "Wanting to Forget" but, it is far deeper then I could have ever imagined. His childhood was pretty intense. He was the victim of some pretty terrible things. They were the foundation of his issues as an adult. He clearly loved Kacey but, couldn't get passed his addiction and his fear of breaking her heart. Will Jordie get passed his demons or will they destroy him?

I loved Kacey. She is a strong female character who speaks her mind and curses like a sailor and I love it! She fits in so great with the other female characters from Aleo's books. She has not had it easy either. After Jordie left her she lost it. She went through some really bad things without Jordie. She truly suffered and she suffered alone. She isn't sure if she can ever forgive Jordie for what he did and how he made her feel. I don't blame her either. Her family is very supportive. She moves into her brother Karson's house with his wife Lacey and new baby! I love them too by the way. Her family is always behind her, which she will need if she is going to give Jordie a second chance. Will Jordie win her back?

These two have some seriously hot moments. I mean...holy crap. I can see why she likes the very manly version of Jordie. He is a dirty talker and I love it! He knows what Kacey likes and he does those things oh so well! They are perfect for each other and they both know it. I was waiting for them to give in to their needs. Kacey kept pushing him away. She didn't know how much he needed her. Although, Jordie didn't either. After he sobered up, he realized how much she completed him and it became his mission to get her back. I love when a man woo's his lady.

We get to see all of our favorite Assassin's too. You absolutely can't forget about them. My favorite team of hot hockey players! Keep them coming Toni Aleo because I love them all! Overtime is a story of loss, addiction, and how someone can overcome the biggest obstacles in their lives. It is a story of how love and family can triumph over your darkest times. You will need to pick this one up everyone!
