All the Sauce (IceCats #4)
by Toni Aleo
Owen Adler has spent his whole life being half of a matched set. But when his twin brother Evan leaves hockey—and him—behind on the Carolina IceCats, Owen finds he has to skate a new path on his own.
Angie Paxton knows a lot about being on her own. She pushed Nashville, and the trauma she experienced there, to the back of her mind and started over in South Carolina. And though she’s blooming where she planted herself both academically and professionally, emotionally, she’s been struggling under the weight of her past.
Owen has had a thing for Angie since they were kids, but she would never give him the time of day. Now that they’re reconnecting as adults, they quickly find they want to spend all their days together. Angie is struggling to let go of the insecurities that plague her, but growing up Adler has made Owen an expert at getting what he wants. And for him, Angie is the only goal worth making.
5 All the Sauce Stars
All the Sauce is the fourth book in the IceCats series by Toni Aleo. Owen is Shea and Elli Adler’s son from Taking Shots. He is twin to Evan and Angie is Lucy & Benji’s daughter from Rushing the Goal, Benji is not Angie’s biological dad but he adores her as if she where his own.
Angie is not who she once was and in her own mind not as good. Even though she is putting herself more or less through collage and hopes to help the way forward for mental health in sports.
She still can’t see herself as anything special.
Owen is now a player for the Ice Cats, although it’s not the assassins it is his dream to be playing hockey for such a high profile team. Playing with his twin brother Evan is the cherry on top. Until Evan decided to leave hockey and then Owen is lost. He ends up meeting Angie again after a long time and as soon as he sees her he knows she is it for him. Now all he has to do is show Angie that.
This was such a great read from Toni Aleo, some of the Angies insecurities rained home for me, especially because when I was young I would have felt very like her at times. As always with her books her secondary characters where on point and this was an amazing read, I highly recommend it.
