Opposites do more than just attract in Toni Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist. The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lies behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test. Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Taking Shots, Trying to Score, and Empty Net.
I fell in LOVE with the Assassins series after reading Shea and Elli's story. Imagine my elation when I received an ARC of Blue Lines!!!
This is Piper and Erik's story.
Piper is beautiful, spunky, tatted, and loves with her whole heart.
Erik is a hot, cocky, womanizer who doesn't believe in love or that he is even capable of it.
Their lives are forever changed after an unbelievable night of lust and longing.
First let me say that I absolutely love a dual pov story!! Thank you Toni Aleo for that!
Also, all the characters from the previous books make an appearance... so it's like a little added bonus!
The story was written well. It was sweet, touching and sexy.
I enjoyed their steamy lovemaking as well as the flashbacks to their first night together.DAYUM!!It was hot!
Erik's emotions run deep. Underneath that tough exterior he's hiding a dark past he doesn't share with anyone.
Erik's heart and his head were at odds the entire story. Some of his words and actions had me cringing! Not only did I want to slap him upside the head, but Piper too! As for Piper, I guess people do stupid things when blinded by love. *I received an arc provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
