    Synopsis |

    They say your first kiss should be earned.

    Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

    They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

    Mine were broken before we left church.

    They say your heart only beats for one man.

    Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

    I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

    Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.  

    They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

    I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

    One kiss.Two men.Three lives.Entwined together.

    And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

    Synopsis |

    Fans of Kristen Callihan, L.J. Shen, and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

    I'm no Prince Charming.

    Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I'm also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, "The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet." Apparently, I'm a legend.

    Am I surprised? Hell, no. It's a reputation I've earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune... and spent every damn day since pretending I don't regret it.

    Now fate's dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it's a second chance for me - for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can't give Piper a future.

    Because there's a difference between a legend and a fairy tale...Only one of them ends happily ever after.

    Synopsis |

    My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart...

    We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.

    Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.

    She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.

    This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

    Synopsis |

    Chandler Moon’s career as a defensemen for the IceCats is on fire. However, his marriage has gone up in flames…literally. He’s resigned himself to the single life and being the best dog dad he can be, but he still holds out hope that one day he’ll find “The One.” So, imagine his surprise when he runs into “The One Who Got Away.” Amelia Justice. His best friend’s baby sister. AKA: “The One Who Is Totally Off-Limits” Amelia is broken. The punches that life, and her ex-husband, have thrown at her have her down for the count. She’s cut herself off from her family and friends as she works to rebuild her self-esteem and her spirit. Hidden away in a small town, she never expects to reconnect with “The One She Should Have Chosen.” Chandler is so much more than he was in college: more handsome, more muscular, more tattooed… It was supposed to be a casual fling while Amelia and Chandler worked to put the pieces of their lives back together. But as every good hockey player knows, a rebound can turn into one hell of a goal.

    About Toni Aleo

    My name is Toni Aleo, and I’m a #PredHead, #sherrio, #potterhead, and part of the #familybusiness!
    I am also a wife to my amazing husband, mother of a gamer and a gymnast, and also a fur momma to Gaston el Papillion.
    While my beautiful and amazing Shea Weber has been traded from my Predators, I’m still a huge fan. But when I’m not cheering for him, I’m hollering for the whole Nashville Predators since I’ll never give my heart to one player again.
    When I’m not in the gym getting swole, I’m usually writing, trying to make my dreams a reality, or being a taxi for my kids.
    I’m obsessed with Harry Potter, Supernatural, Disney, and anything that sparkles! I’m pretty sure I was Belle in a past life, and if I could be on any show, it would be Supernatural so I could hunt with Sam and Dean.
    Also, I did mention I love hockey, right?

    #Top10of2018 | Best of the Best

    books, romance schmomance, red, white, blue, dragon heartstring, juliette cross

    This will be my last post for the Top 10 of 2018, I decided to not share the books I’m looking forward to in 2019. That list is extensive and not complete, so I don’t even know where to start. And it’s always a bit stressful for me to make lists like that. I hope you enjoyed my little wrap-up for the year and hope you all have the best year of reading!

    My fellow bookish friend over at Kimberly Faye Reads is hosting a December challenge featuring Top 10 of 2018! It has been tough try to plan ahead for these posts because it is so tough to narrow all of lists to ONLY 10, it’s damn right near impossible. But I did the best that I could and can’t wait to share with all of you until the end of the year.

    Today’s prompt is Best of the Best! Okay, I know I’ve said this with every list, but this one was probably the toughest to narrow down to just 10. I have like 70ish on my list … I suck at updating my Goodreads list as I’m reading. I took some liberties and counted a couple series as one *shhhhh*.
