Cover Reveal: Empty Net [Assassins #3] by Toni Aleo

Hello all!

So jumping right back into blogging is just what I need to get this week started. And I think I just may have a little something to get your week going as well. If you remember, I am a pretty dang big Toni Aleo fan. Her books pretty much made me realize that I was a fool for not paying attention to those studly sexy hockey players I saw on ESPN. Well today you get to see her cover for Empty Net the third book in her Assasins series. And let me tell you all, its steaming hot. Want a peak?

...Drum Roll Please...

Empty Net [Assasins #3]
Toni Aleo
Expected Release Date: September 11th, 2012
Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.
Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.
Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanly Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.
But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.
Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net?

Sounds pretty much amazing right? Well if the synopsis got your heart beating then you are going to want to run up to Toni and give her a big ol hug and kiss when you find out you can read the full first chapter of Empty Net right here.

Yeah! I said the full first chapter! And not only do you get that, but an amazing playlist to go along with your reading adventure! Toni really is amazing isn't she?!

Coming back...With a new look on blogging.

Hello all you wonderful bloggers/readers out there.

I have a feeling some of you may be a bit taken aback at seeing me blogging again, since I have been gone since about May or so. I feel like before tomorrows cover reveal for Toni Aleo's third book Empty Net goes up I should give you guys a bit of an update. Really...just explaining why I stopped and just dropped off the face of the blogosphere.

Blogging became too much too fast for me. I got all excited and took on all these books and got overwhelmed, and when I found out I was expecting my 2nd child it just added on to my brain being overloaded [and so stinking tired!] After taking a step back from blogging and finding my love of reading again I have come to miss my connections with all of you. Reviews felt like a chore and now, since I have stopped reviewing, I have felt a big old giant hole in my soul for not being able to get my crazy and heart stopping thoughts out of my head for a book that made me fall head over heels. I have missed fangirling over a swoon-worthy stud or freaking out over a story that I just KNEW you all had to read. So I have decided to come back, but with a bit different outlook on how I want to run my blog.

One of the things I missed the most when I got overwhelmed with review books was being able to read the book I want, when I want. So that being said, I have decided to tweak my review policy and take on WAY less books for review. I will probably end up doing less of the weekly meme's also. Some of them I really enjoy and I will do them off and on, but not killing myself to find a book to fit. Now, I realize that I may not be posting everyday, but I still feel like I will have something to offer you guys and a way to get out all of my book rants I have been holding in.

If you are reading this my followers, thanks for sticking by me in my long absence and I hope you stick around for what I have to offer now. I have missed all of you and most of all I have missed the giant network of book friends I have acquired. You guys are all amazing and I can't wait to start making the connections with all of you again.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and don't forget to come back here tomorrow for the cover reveal of Empty Net [Assassins #3] by Toni Aleo. Let me tell you, missing it is not something you want to do.
