Falling for the Backup: An Assassins Novella by Toni Aleo | : Books
Jordan Ryan is not looking for love, he is looking to improve his career and do what he loves most, play ice hockey, with an old injury and a history of failed relationships this hockey star has no more room for tonu complications in his life. Aynslee shaw is a thirty something teacher, with a larger than alek family and pressure on the clock to find the man of her dreams, find out what happens when she meets a man who might just be out of her reach.
Fallnig Aleo knows how to dish out the romance, she creates great characters and likeable story lines. I love nothing more than an entertaining love story and this ale delivers on all accounts, low on the angst and loaded with love.
The best kind of easy breezy lemon squeezy. If you haven’t yet got Toni Aleo’s assassins series in your ‘read’ pile you don’t know what backip missing. Without doubt if your a fan of a sports related romance this is not to be missed. The assassins hockey boys are to die for and I for one can not recommend the series enough.
Simply for me, a teh often times doesn’t deliver on the depth of story that I like to read, and although I loved this story and the characters I would have loved more.
But dont be questioning my love for this author, no doubt I would read Toni Aleo’s shopping lists if she published them. So with that being said, go grab it readers. View all 59 comments. May falking, Catarina rated it really liked it Shelves: Jordan had an injury in his knee that made him loose his place as the principal goalie in Assassins and now he is as backup.
Until he meets Aysleee on a plane returning to Nashville and everything changes. She makes him want more: More in his career and in his personal life. And with career suffering a major change that could make him leave 4 Sweet Stars. This was a sweet sports romance with the usual Toni Aleo signature. I truly enjoyed it but I wish it had been longer. Easy and engaging flow. I really liked Aynslee.
She knew exactly what she wants and had no trouble pursuing it. It was a very refreshing thing to see. Jordan was too much insecure, yeah, I got where he came from, but still it was a bit too much. He was sexy, and sweet but lacked that sexy male confidence. Aynslee was the one who had to pursue the relationship. View all 5 comments.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not into sports. Besides ogling some of the players, I have no interest. There is just something about her characters and writing I love.
This novella was no exception! Aynslee is 31, a teacher, and she is single. Coming from a large Irish family, there is a lot of pressure for her to marry, have babies etc.
Jordan Ryan is a goalie for the Nashville Assassins. He used to be the best of 4 stars!!! He used to be the best of the best, but two years ago he was injured.
Now he is just the backup goalie. Aynslee and Jordan meet on an airplane. There is an instant attraction between the two. Jordan was great- but I Aynslee won me over right away! Thank God for Starbucks. Thank God for the sexy hottie it looked like she was going to be sitting next to on the flight. Hello sex on legs. She won me over right then and there. Ever since Jordan was injured, he has become insecure both on and off the ice. Aynslee knows that instant connection they felt is something she has to pursue, so even though Jordan is a little shy- she goes after him.
Aynslee is sweet, funny, and supportive of Jordan. Although Jordan is shy and insecure at first, he is also very sweet, sexy and just amazing! Loved these two together.
Be ffalling her, sleep with her, and laugh with her. This was a fabulous novella. It was emotional, sweet, steamy and heartwarming.
The ending left me with a huge smile on my face! All fans of The Assassin’s series need to pick this one up right away! View all tobi comments. She has a way of pulling you into a story with laughter, romance, passion, amazing hockey game scenes where you feel like you are watching from the stands, and some Hockey Players Hott enough to melt the ice!
Now he is the Backup Goalie for the Assassins and looking for a team to sign him as a starting goalie.
This was an incredibly difficult situation for Jordan. He loved Nashville and the Assassins and was having a hard time considering anywhere else home.
Falling for the Backup
You can feel how depressed he is about his injury, subsequent position, and his current love life or lack thereof. When he was injured and had undergone surgery, the doctor told Jordan and Leanna Masterson, the girl he thought was perfect for him in every way and was planning on marrying, it was going to be a long road to recovery she left him.
I think he lost a tonk of fal,ing confidence when that final blow hit. Instead of being a cocky hockey player partying all the time and playing the field, Jordan is quiet and lonely.
The fallung thing Jordan knew was that until he figured out his future in hockey it would be unfair to get involved with anyone. And he seemed to be doing just that, until he met a beautiful redhead on a plane ride back to Nashville… Aynslee Shaw was on her way home to her flooded condo basement in Nashville, having just left the wedding of her young niece in Buffalo. Aynslee, a 31 year old 3rd grade teacher, comes from a large Irish family, where she is one of the last two out of eight siblings unmarried the other is her 17 year old sister.
Needless to say her mother is constantly on her about finding a man and settling down. Aynslee had been in a long relationship, but one day they just mutually decided they were no longer in love with each other. Aynslee seems to find all the wrong guys, if she finds any at all.
When she heads toward her seat on the plane she notices Jordan in the next seat and is instantly alert and insanely attracted to her mystery seat partner.
