Book Review for “Taking Shots”
“Taking Shots” by Toni Aleo
Photographer, Elli Fisher, loves hockey – it’s practically what she lives for. When given the chance to take pictures of her favorite team, the Nashville Assassins, she gladly jumps at the chance! That’s when she finally meets her long-time crush and captain of the team, Shea Adler, #6. There is immediate attraction between them from day one, though Ellie doesn’t get why because she doesn’t think she’s his type. Shea Adler is known for having one night stands with big-boobed blond women, and isn’t supposed to be falling for overweight and very insecure girls like herself. Once she realizes how persistent Shea is, her confidence grows and grows, only after he breaks every wall that she hides behind and after a lot of work, but Shea doesn’t give up on her – thanks to the sometimes help of Ellie’s best friend Harper, who is also dating an Assassin, and Grace, Shea’s sister.
I loved this book! Toni Aleo has written a book I will never forget. “Taking Shots” was such a delight to read. From beginning to end, I was keeping my fingers crossed for Ellie and Shea. Not only were these two great as a couple, they were great characters individually who had their own storyline with friends and family. I loved how the book was written from his and her POV. I thought it was done very well – and loved how it switched just when I wanted to know that the other was thinking, and the sex scenes were hot! While it was long and words were repeated quite often, I couldn’t put it down. If you’re looking for a cute read with a happy ever after ending, then you’ll love this book!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
About the author:
My name is Toni Aleo!
I am a wife, mother, and hopeless romantic.
I have been told I have anger issues, but I think it’s cause of my intense love for hockey!
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughters dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, and reading the latest romance novel.
I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, and did I mention I love hockey?
I hope to hear from you on here, my Facebook, or my twitter! Thank you so much!
