Add To GoodReads



Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other…or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

Lacey has a 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 to 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 includes the prequel Tangled in the Laces, a dollar of your purchase will be donated to the Nashville Predators Foundation.





"I feel that Laces & Lace was one of the best books in the series, not only because it revolved around heavy matter, but also because it drug you through emotional turmoil and struggles and it wasn’t happy go lucky easy." ~ Amazon Reviewer: Kris

"Laces and Lace is a story of survival, bravery, and endearing love. A story of when two people collide and life without the other is miserable. After I read the prequel to Laces and Lace I was dying to read the full novel. This story touched my heart and I urge you to go get your copy!" ~ Brittany @ Spare Time Book Blog

"This is such a great read, with more steam than most of Toni's books! And so many laugh out loud moments, seriously - JT needs his own book, and it needs to be amazingly hilarious because I couldn't stop laughing! Overall? Laces and Lace was well worth the wait!!" ~ For Love and Books "Jac"

Karson and Lacey met nine years ago, they fell in love hard and thought nothing or no one would be able to keep them apart. But Karson let Lacey's dad interfere and years later he's living with the regret and what if's. 
Karson King a successful hockey player, a good son, a good brother, and a good friend, he has the world in the palm of his had...but not the woman he's been loving for nine long years.
Lacey is a breast cancer survivor, strong as nails, a woman with her own business and a life she loves. She has everything she's ever wanted, except love...and Karson.
A chance encounter, and passion that the years haven't been able to placate, bring these two soulmates together once again.
Will they be able to make this relationship work this time around?
Will they be able to fight those going against them and live the life destiny owns them?
After LOVING Tangled in the Laces, bawling my eyes out and waiting for Laces and Lace, I can honestly say that Toni didn't disappoint.
She gave me the love and sexy times that I so much love about her books, but also gave me the drama that every story needs, mixed with a bit of humor courtesy of the one and only, JT, Karson's roommate. 
Mrs. Aleo's books are character and story driven. She will take you on a journey with her characters that will have you reliving their stories days after you're done reading and this book is not the exception.
Even though Lacey showed her insecurities at one point or another, I loved her character. Her courage and her desire to live her life the best she could after surviving breast cancer at such a young age was awe inspiring. It takes a very strong soul to go through all that and come through strong and with the spirit of a fighter. 
I loved Karson, it's true that he was going through life as a somewhat womanizer but sometimes we have to do certain things to survive and try to forget that not always we agree with 100%.
As much as I love some of the characters I HATED others, Nate, Lacey's dad for example. How can you say you love your daughter so much but yet destroy her dreams and shatter her heart? And Rachel??? Seriously girl? I wanted to smack you so hard, you can thank your lucky stars that I wasn't Lacey.
Definitely one book that comes to fit perfectly in the Assassins series. 
Please note that the ebook includes both Tangled in the Laces and Laces and Lace and Toni is donating $1 from the sale of each book to the Nashville Predators Foundation for Pediatric Cancer research. A great book supporting and even greater cause!
