Misadventures with a Rookie
by Toni Aleo, New York Times bestselling author
Release Date: April 10th Goodreads
Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

I love hockey theme books and Toni Aleo is one of those authors who knows how to deliver, not only the action on the ice but the steam off of it.
Let me tell you what I loved the most about this book, the chemistry. Bo and Gus didn't particularly liked each other from the get go, but each look into each other's eyes and the not so nice words they exchanged from time to time were sizzling with sexual desire. I enjoy a book that even when the main characters don't get along at the beginning, the chemistry is slow building and definitely palpable.
Gus is definitely a womanizer who thinks he's God's gift to the world, Bo has been through hell and back when it comes to men and she wants no business with cocky as heck Gus. There is a saying that says that there is a thin line between love and hate and that's exactly the line these two characters walked at the beginning of the story. I adored Gus and the man he changes into to show Bo that he's better than the reputation that precedes him, and Bo, I hurt for her, for the things she was missing, but I also admired her for wanting to be a better person, a better woman.
Toni has proven once again that she can write a darn good hockey book with great characters and an interesting storyline. Definitely one of my go to authors.
