Lots of Questions!

Hello all!!!

I’ve been getting the same two questions since Hooked by Love came out and I figured I’d answer them!

  1. Will Lucy get her own book? Answer: YES! Her book is Rushing the Goal! The cover reveal is this Sunday!!! 2/14/16
  2. Will Markus get his own book? Answer: YES! Not sure when, not sure how, but he will get his book!

Thanks so much! I hope everyone is excited for Rushing the Goal! I know I am!

 


IT’S TIME TO BE HOOKED BY LOVE

Hooked By Love is finally here!

But to understand the end – you must first start from the beginning…

BOARDED BY LOVE

(Bellevue Bullies #1)

17448422

Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I’m good at it…really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships beyond my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.

She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking.

She’s my game changer.

***
He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling.

I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.

Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that’s my secret.

You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love… or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight?

Especially when you’re boarded by love.

Things are heating up for the Sinclair boys! With one already in the NHL, Jayden Sinclair is hoping to be next!

This has been the toughest year of my life. I watched my brother go into the draft without me, my mom got divorced, and the weight of my family’s issues is heavy on my shoulders. I feel like it’s my job to fix everything while working my butt off in school and trying to make my game better. I have to go into the draft. It will give my family the support they need, and it will prove that I’m good enough. But to get there, I have to show I can be the best captain for the Bellevue Bullies. The spot is mine—no one can take it. First though, Jude is making me go on a brother’s weekend. Innocent enough, I guess…until I see her. She’s the biggest competitor I’ve ever faced. Not only for my spot but also my heart. It’s hard to ignore someone like Baylor Moore.

***

I don’t lose. I can’t. My dad has bred me to be the best in anything I do. I am driven, I am smart, and I am going to be the first woman in the National Hockey League. No two ways about it. I’ve worked too hard. I’ve been through too much not to have what I want. I know I can do it. I will make my dad proud, and no one will stand in the way of that. That is, until I let him in. He scares me. He makes me feel. And he could very well be the one person who can make me want more than just to win.

We both have the same goal. Victory. But how do you compete against the person you want to win? It’s not easy. Love isn’t something you can control. It isn’t like a puck that can be handled by a stick.

No, it has a mind of its own and does what it wants.
Neither of us saw it coming, and we really don’t know if there is a way to score, especially when you’re being Clipped by Love.

HOOKED BY LOVE

Things are out of control for the Sinclair boys! With two already in the NHL, Jace Sinclair is ready to follow in his brothers’ HUGE skates in the last Bellevue Bullies novel…

Jace Sinclair here, and I’m amazing. There is no other way to describe me. I am the leading scorer for the Bellevue Bullies, I’m the captain, and people love me: my family, my teammates, my coach, and the NHL. This is my last year in college–I already have one foot in the draft. Hockey keeps me warm even when it’s freezing. It’s always there when nothing else is. And it pushes me to be the best I can be. It’s my one and only love.

That is, until I see her against a tree with a guitar.

Avery.

The last thing I wanted was to meet anyone. My heart is on the bench because of what happened with my parents, and I don’t want that for myself. I don’t want to be hurt by anyone. I can’t give them that power.

But my heart is begging for ice time, and I can’t control it around her.

* * *

I’ve always been in the background. No one has ever had time for me and that’s fine; I’ve learned to cope. Coming from a family where hockey is life, the last thing I want is some big, burly hockey player charging at me. I don’t have time for it, but Jace Sinclair isn’t one to be deked around.

I didn’t want to meet anyone. I didn’t want to end up freezing the puck with him. It’s not what I want.

I have demons.

I have issues.

Living in the shadows, no one even knew until it was too late. But Jace wants to know.
He wants me.

And that scares me the living hell out of me.

We were so worried about what would happen if we fell, but we never thought what could happen in the process of falling. We never saw it coming. But it’s here, and the repercussions are not pretty.

We should have known that there is no way out of the zone when you are being Hooked by Love.

HOOKED BY LOVE

By Toni Aleo

COMING 12.28.2015

Things are out of control for the Sinclair boys! With two already in the NHL, Jace Sinclair is ready to follow in his brothers’ HUGE skates in the last Bellevue Bullies novel…

Jace Sinclair here, and I’m amazing. There is no other way to describe me. I am the leading scorer for the Bellevue Bullies, I’m the captain, and people love me: my family, my teammates, my coach, and the NHL. I already have one foot in the draft and I’m ready. This is my last year in college–it’s basically a conditioning year to get me ready for the NHL, to further my game, and I have to be focused. But then, it’s also my last year to have fun and not give a damn before my life really starts. Which means I’m gonna run through every girl I meet. That’s my plan. Because my one and only love is hockey. It keeps me warm even when it’s freezing. It’s always there when nothing else is. And it pushes me to be the best I can be. It’s my love.

That is, until I see her against a tree with a guitar.

Avery.

The last thing I wanted was to meet anyone. My heart is on the bench because I’ve watched my mom get broken by the person I call my father, and I don’t want that for myself. I don’t want to be hurt by anyone. I can’t give them that power.

But my heart is begging for ice time, and I can’t control it around her.

* * *

I’ve always been in the background. No one has ever had time for me and that’s fine; I’ve learned to cope. Coming from a family where hockey is life, the last thing I want is some big, burly hockey player charging at me. I don’t have time for it, but Jace Sinclair isn’t one to be deked around. The thing is, I came to the University of Bellevue for one reason and one reason only. To make my dreams of being a singer/songwriter come true. To work in the industry and pay my dues. Become who I really want to be.

I didn’t want to meet anyone. I didn’t want to end up freezing the puck with him. It’s not what I want.

I have demons.

I have issues.

Living in the shadows, no one even knew until it was too late. But Jace wants to know.

A Note from Toni Aleo…ME!

A note from the desk of
Toni Aleo

Hi all!!

I haven’t done an update in a really long time and felt that I am long overdue for one.

So, a lot has been going on lately. My kids have gone back to school, Overtime came out and life is busy and good. I’m very, very blessed. When I’m not writing, I’m working out and I’m proud to announce that I have lost a grand total of 110lbs in the last two years. That’s ten pants sizes, a lot of body fat and I’m rocking this fit life. I love it. IMG_8993

When I started this exercise journey two years ago, I never thought that I would love spinning so much, that I’d decide to become an instructor. I honestly owe most of my weight loss to that exercise and the other day, I made the decision to begin training to become an instructor. I am excited to announce that I have passed my test and I am now a certified Indoor Cycling Instructor! I’m so excited to start teaching but don’t worry: writing is my passion; cycle instructing is my jobby ☺ Job/Hobby! Hehe.IMG_8896

I’ve been traveling a lot lately. I had a great time in both Nashville and Pittsburgh and I will be going to Philadelphia, in November. I love seeing you gals and spending time with y’all! It’s been awesome. So thank you all for coming out to see me.

Oh, yeah, did you know HOCKEY IS ALMOST HERE?!?! Who’s excited? THIS GIRL! If you come to a Preds game, look for me! I have season tickets and you’ll be able to find me. I’ll be the girl screaming uncontrollably while Mr. Aleo tries to hide…hehe.

Also, something else that is new with me is that I cut off all my hair. Every bit of it! Haha. I love short hIMG_6890air and with how I’m in the gym 24/7, it made sense. I love my snazzy hair cut and I feel like I have lost five more pounds from getting it all cut off!

 

Okay, so not that’s I’ve updated you on my personal life, I figure it’s time to update you on my writing life. So, I have some bad news and I figured if I threw all the good at you, maybe it would soften the blow…probably not, but I tried. Anyways, as y’all know, I was writing You Got Me, which was to be the first in my cowboy series. A little background on this book, I started it about two years ago, after I had written Taking Shots. I stopped because the characters weren’t talking to me and Fallon and Lucas wanted my attention. I’ve said this time and time again, I write what I do because my characters talk to me.

Unfortunately, these characters stopped talking to me again.

I know, I’m heartbroken over this also. I feel like a failure, a quitter and those two words aren’t in my vocabulary on a regular basis. I feel like I was faking it to make it. I was pushing through, trying so hard to make it work, but most of the time I just stared blankly at my computer and cried because it wasn’t coming to me. I have been working on You Got me since right after Overtime came out in early August, and I’m not even halfway done. That is so unlike me. I usually write a book a month, so this is pretty traumatizing for me.

I know I said that I wanted this book out in November and I did, but I’ve decided, after talking to my husband, my editor and my friend, Chelle, that this is not going anywhere. So I’ve decided to put it on the back burner, and maybe I’ll come revisit it another time. I think the biggest problem is that the characters from Hooked by Love, the next and last Bullies series, have been talking to me like mad, demanding my attention. Since I’m one of those authors that has to work on one thing at a time, I’ve tried ignoring them, but it isn’t working.

So today, I typed this:

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 1.26.01 PM

And I feel so damn good. I feel back on track, I’ve had a smile on my face all day and I’m ready. I’m ready to write this book and then the next Assassins Series novel. Am I saying that I wont go back to You Got Me, no, I’m not, but right now, I’m gonna go to what I know.

My hockey boys.

I hope you still love me and are patient. That you’ll wait till December when I plan to have Hooked by Love released. I figured another birthday release is a good idea. They are fun! Hehe.

Again, I’m sorry. But thank you, thank you for being the best readers a girl could have and I love you dearly.

Thank you.

Love, Toni
