RUSHING THE GOALIntroduced in Toni Aleo’s Bellevue Bullies Series, it’s the Sinclair brothers’ big sister’s turn to find love in the next installment of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling series, the Assassins.
Lucy Sinclair was no stranger to pain.
She grew up with three younger brothers, met a bad boy, got pregnant by him, married him, and then suffered through a nasty divorce from him. Pain. That was pain. To top it off, she even had to go through the heartbreaking divorce of her parents. Through it all, she survived. All she cared about was making sure her daughter was happy and taken care of. Despite an ex-husband hell-bent on ruining her life, she fought to overcome. She’s gotten to the point that she’s okay with being just okay. She never cared about herself because she never had the time. It was Angie and only Angie she focused on, but that all changed when Benji Paxton offered to help her daughter on the ice.
Benji knew the moment he saw Lucy, he’d never be the same. Especially when she came with the bundle of crazy that was her daughter. His heart wasn’t ready for them. After years spent sobering up and finding who he was without the alcohol, he never forgot he was being punished for not appreciating the love he had when he was younger. Because of his past, he had gotten used to being alone, a recluse, but even he had to admit it was getting old. He was lonely. Hockey wasn’t enough anymore. He wanted a family; he wanted his true love, and Lucy and Angie were just that.
Benji and Lucy were just two lost souls. Floating through life with no purpose. But finding each other gave them direction, a chance at a future.

MY REVIEW: One of the things that I love about Toni Aleo's books is that she put things in them that you can see happening in real life. Like when you stub your toe and you feel like it may have fell off. That part had me laughing so hard because you know we've all been there. There's nothing like the pain of it. Insert the quote here
I think the books just keep getting hotter and hotter. I mean woah, this one is pretty hot!
The text messages between the Sinclairs are freaking hilarious! I mean laugh out loud, look around to see who is looking at you kind of funny.
Watching Benji and Lucy both come out of their shells was truly heartwarming. Benji, nerdy, lovable Benji. The things that he has done, the things that he's been throug and the ways that he has grown as a man makes you want to give him a big old hug and say I'm proud of you. The way that he gets Lucy, makes her see more than just existing, not smiling unless it has something to do with her daughter Angie is not being truly happy.
Lucy started out with picking the wrong man, but was too proud to say she was wrong and stayed with him until it was almost too late. Then her dad, her hero, truly did her mom wrong then turned around and did the kids wrong. She felt that she couldn't trust any man. Then she meets Benji and there is just something with him that makes her take a second look.
Oh my goodness Rick! What a freaking waste of breath, he does not deserve to have kids. Ugh! The things that he does and say would want to make me throat punch him. The things that he does towards Lucy and Angie...unbelievable. Had some shaking my head moments over this man.
Benji, big old nerdy, adorable Benji is second on my list of BBF's in the Assassin's Series. Shea Adler is still number 1 on this list. I will say Benji gave him a run for his money though.
