Release Date: 22/08/17

Jensen Monroe is a unicorn. As handsome as any model, as polite as can be, a goalie of unmatched skill, and the best friend anyone could ask for. But he longs for a particular special someone to make his life complete. He’s been in love with Wren since he was a teenager, but as his best friend’s sister, she’s always been off-limits.

Wren Lemiere has prided herself on being a love ’em and leave ’em girl her whole life. She’s all about equal opportunity in the battle of the sexes. Why should guys like her brother and his best friends get to be the only ones allowed to play the dating game? One wrong move, however, and she finds herself in violation of her own rules.

In need of a fake husband and baby daddy for her unexpected bundle of joy, Wren finally accepts Jensen is the logical one to ask for help. Except he has a counteroffer…one with so many strings attached, they may just find themselves wrapped up in ties that bind. Forever.


5 Save The Day stars on Goodreads

I was so excited to get my hands on this book. Toni has teased us so much with Wren and Jenson, especially in Vaughan’s story that I’ve been dying to read their story.

In the Crease is the twelfth installment of the Assassin Series and can be read as a standalone. But I highly reading the whole series.

“This whole relationship has been like the moment in the crease—where the puck could go in, or you could block it. She’s the blocker, and you’re the puck trying to go in. It’s a gamble. A big one.”

Jensen without a doubt has always loved Wren. Everyone knew that Jensen loved Wren but one person… Wren! Wren needs a baby daddy before her 30th birthday or she wont get her inheritance. Along comes sweet, caring, loyal, and devoted Jenson to save the day.

In the Crease is a feel good romance and will have you smiling, crying  and falling in love throughout most of the book. I couldn’t put it down and devoured it whole. I love this series but In the Crease is one of my favourites so far.

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?
