Review: Laces & Lace by Toni Aleo

New York Times & USA Today best selling author, Toni Aleo presents the next installment in the Assassins Series.

Tangled in Laces- (Prequel novella to Laces & Lace- Included with this book)
In Tangled in Laces, Karson King is on the fast track to the NHL. Lacey Martin is coming back from a hard fight against cancer and is terrified of him, but the attraction is too much to ignore. Soon their love is so intense, neither of them see the rest of their lives without the other. Will Karson prove that he will protect his heart at all costs, or will he leave Lacey to pick up the pieces of her life once again?

Laces & Lace- Assassins Series Book #6
Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after... or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

Lacey has strength inside her that comes alive with the things she's most passionate about. She's a fighter, a survivor, and has everything she;s ever wanted but the one thing that matters most- love.

Karson is doing the one thing he loves most- playing hockey for the Assassins, yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago- Lacey.

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present and a possible future?

Can two people with fate on their side find a way back to each other? Overcome all the obstacles in their way and finally
live life together to the fullest?

Or will they let those around them and the circumstances they face, along with questions and doubt, ruin a second chance at the life they both deserve.

Laces and Lace was everything I had hoped for, and then some! I have been dying to read this story since Tangled in Laces was published in Seduced by the Game, the fundraising anthology -Hockey Fights Cancer. I am pleased to see that the prequel is included with this release and that the Author is donating $1 for every book sold to this wonderful cause.

When Karson was forced to walk away from Lacey years ago it broke him. He's never fully been able to move on and when a chance to make amends presents itself he commits fully to reclaim Lacey and his heart.

Lacey won her battle with breast cancer, but still has an aching hole in her chest, put there by Karson. When fate brings him back to her door, she finds it impossible not to give him the second chance he so desperately wants.

However, Lacey's family and best friend aren't excited about this reunion and are a determined to separate these two for good. Will true love overcome all odds, or will the meddling of the people that claim to love Lacey the most push these two soul mates apart... Again?

I am such a fan of the Assassins series. Toni Aleo writes emotional, but heartwarming romances starring hot hockey players and the women who love them. I've yet to give any book in this series less than 5 stars. This series is one that I've reread several times and am likely to read it again. Laces in Lace maybe in my top two favorites of this series. Toni Aleo uses her voice as a platform to not only entertain, but to also bringing something as ugly as cancer and making it beautiful with this story of second chances.

I recommend reading all books in this series, however Laces and Lace can absolutely stand alone. If you are looking for a great read this one is sure to fit the bill.

PS> I was provided with an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I LOVED this book and will be purchasing a copy for my keeper shelf!
