Delayed Call: The Assassins Series by Toni Aleo ... Review by Dawn

Product Details

Vaughn Johansson is the Nashville Assassins' star player. He's brash, cocky, and talented. And he isn't afraid to let anyone know it. He lives his life on his own terms, never forming romantic attachments, and only allowing his very closest to see his true, caring self.

Brie Soledad has the weight of the world on her shoulders. As the staff reporter for the Assassins, she balances her high-profile job and its heavy travel schedule with being the sole provider for her adult brother with Down syndrome. Sure, she'd like to find love. But who has time for that when there are bills to pay?

Brie has been the match to Vaughn's gasoline since the day she first held out her microphone to him. They strike sparks off each other, keeping their friends, the team, and the Assassins fans in stitches. Brie’s refusal to fawn over Vaughn sets his teeth on edge and his blood boiling. Especially in that body part... 

Brie's been let down by love before, but she knows she deserves nothing less than real, forever love. Vaughn's past has left deep, hidden scars, and there are some secrets he cannot bear to reveal. As much as Brie wants him, Vaughn may be too big a risk for her wary heart to take. But he is at his best under pressure. When the delayed call is in effect and he has no choice but to score, Vaughn always delivers.

My Review

I am almost embarrassed to admit that this is my very first Toni Aleo book! Now, I am going to be spending all my time going back and reading the first 10 books in this Assassins series!  

I love this book so much! It had the humor and sexiness that I just love. Brie Soledad is a fantastic leading lady. I loved that she knew her hockey, she knew the game as well as the players she reported on. I so enjoyed the "love hate" relationship she had with Vaughn. He was just the biggest jerk to her and she gave it right back to him. I love a lady in a male dominated job not backing down. 

Vaughn on the other hand, I swear had multiple personalities at times. He would be a real jerk to Brie, go home and be this amazing guy to his dog. Loved his work at NateWay. I mean I understand why he kept it private, but man there is NO way that could be kept on the DL this day and age. I grew to love Vaughn, it was just too hard not to. Great leading man!

I really enjoyed this book so much and I highly recommend it to readers. It's fun, It's sexy and it has a message. I will be going back for more, cause I have to know what happened when we were thrown that major plot twist!!!
