Falling for the Backup by Toni Aleo

4 out of 5 stars

This one was a cute one. I love the way Toni Aleo writes romance so that it is sweet with some angst. This latest assassins novella features Jordan who is a back up goalie to the assassins. He meets and falls in love with Aynslee. At first Jordan fights it but eventually he is torn between staying with Aynslee or playing hockey. 

Great Heroine:
Previous assassin books I've always been going crazy with the heroines and their issues. This one was completely different. Aynslee didn't double think anything and for once she was the one doing the chasing.

Insecure Hero:
Jordan is left quite insecure since his knee injury two years ago, as well as his ex fiancé leaving him. He's confidence took a nose dive. He pushed his feelings for Aynslee away at first but I was glad how things ended.

Loving this series:
This was a nice short novel and would have been nice if it was a full length novel. The scene where Jordan met Aynslee's parents was funny and wished there was more of those moments in the book. I always enjoy catching up with old characters like Shea, but wanted to read what the other characters were up to too. Overall previous assassins books have been a solid 4-5 stars and this was no exception. Great book!
