Spiked by Love
(Bellevue Bullies #6)
by Toni Aleo
Allison Titov and Asher Brooks have been best friends their whole lives. Brought up together as part of the Assassins family, they might as well be related. But… Ally has never felt anything sisterly toward Asher.
In love with Asher since she was a teen, Ally has gone pro at keeping her feelings a secret. It’s been easy… as long as he’s stayed halfway across the country at college and she has a volleyball to slap her frustrations out on. But now, he’s home. And having his quick wit, heart-filling laugh, and adorkable smile so close is going to test her like never before.
After being dumped by his fiancée, Asher is at a loss what to do next. He craves stability, but with an unexpected kiss, Ally might as well have spiked Asher in the face with a volleyball. Now he’s faced with the dilemma of his life. Does he keep Ally in the friend zone, or does he take the ultimate risk for love?
If they’ve learned one thing growing up in the glow of hockey greatness, it’s that you can’t win it all if you don’t play the game. And by serving one hell of an ace into the middle of Asher’s safe little life, Ally is ready to claim victory.
Spiked by Love is the sixth book in the Bellevue Bullies Series by Toni Aleo, it also has a tie-in with the Assassins Series. It is a friends to lovers story and I haven’t read all the books in this series but you really don’t need to. Allison Titov and Asher Brooks have been best friends their whole lives. Everyone thought they would get together before now and that they would be perfect for each other. But Asher doesn’t want to face up to his feelings for fear he will get broken and Ally wont make the first move for fear of being rejected.
“All women should be treated like queens. Life is hard, and it’s our job as men to care for, provide for, and love a woman good and hard so she knows she is invincible. That nothing can tear her down.”
Spiked by Love was well written and very well developed, at points it was a little draining but I see where Aleo was going with it. I think that we have seen this story before in her previous books but in saying that it was very enjoyable and entertaining. Her secondary characters are all amazing and make her books excellent. There were a few things that wrecked my head but that’s just my personal opinion. Those few things aside, a very entertaining read.
