Blue Lines is the latest release from NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Toni Aleo in her fabulous Nashville Assassins series. The release date December 9, 2013 and the publisher is Loveswept. From the back cover.~
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 lie 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.
I'm a huge fan of this series and was very grateful to be approved for a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
Let me just say, I really didn't like Erik at the beginning of this book. He really was a bit of a man-whore and I was all in when Piper would throw things at him. However, the more I read, the more I understood why he acted the way he did and I started falling for him every bit as much as Piper.
I will say I loved that no matter how many women Erik was with, he couldn't ever get Piper out of his mind. While I knew he only married Piper initially because he didn't want to lose his job, I knew in my heart that Erik loved Piper as much as she loved him.
This book made me laugh out loud one minute and cry not long after. I love books that pull lots of emotions from me, and Erik and Piper totally fit the bill. I also love this series takes place in Nashville and I recognize so many places mentioned in my city.
Blue Lines is another winner from Toni Aleo and I can't wait to see where she takes this series next.
