Review: Face-Off At The Altar by Toni Aleo


Face-Off At The Altar by Toni Aleo

Release Date: 26/12/16

Markus Reeves is sucking. Big-time. Toiling away on a minor-league hockey team hundreds of miles away from home, he’s watching his dreams of an NHL career fade away. Add in the lingering guilt he has over the dramatic demise of his relationship with college girlfriend, Mekena, and he’s a mess on and off the ice.

But the family of his heart, the Sinclairs, won’t let Markus suffer any longer. When he arrives himself back in Nashville for a trial run on the Assassins, it feels like his life may be making a turn for the better. If only he could get Mekena to forgive him…

Mekena Preston has been hurting since fleeing Nashville following the horror of Markus’s betrayal with her sister. Now a professional photographer, Mekena finds herself in the same place at the same time with Markus to celebrate Lucy and Benji Paxton’s wedding. Neither of them has been able to move on—and they’re starting to wonder if they really want to.

They’re headed for a face-off at the altar unless they can confront their past and unearth the truth about what really happened on that fateful night.

Another great installment in the Assassins Series by Toni Aleo. I was  a little worried I’d out grown this series because I’m not to into her Bellevue Bullies Series and this has started to kinda cross over into this series. This is the ninth book in the Assissans series can you believe that! Crazy were does the time go.

But yes, I loved this book and don’t know why I was worried. My heart hurt for these two and throughout I was routing for them to get it right. Markus Reeves is struggling in the AHL, torn up about how his relationship ended with girlfriend, Mekena Preston.  Meanwhile, Mekena still feels betrayed by Markus and her sister, Skylar. Uh Skylar was a piece of work! What a hateful character.

Yes over all this was a very enjoyable second chance read. It was sweet, funny at times, Romantic story. I’d highly recommend reading it.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
