Welcome to Toni Aleo's Empty Net Blog Tour stop at Rumor Has It!

Let me tell you...When I say I love me some HOCKEY PLAYERS, I totally mean it! They are some sexy mo' fo's.  When I heard that Toni Aleo was coming out with another book in the Assasins series AND that they were about Hockey players, I had to jump on Goodreads and check it out.  I have to admit that I've never read any of Mrs. Aleo's books but I definitely have placed them on my TBR list. If you've read any let me know what you think!

A quick thank you to AuthorsAngels and Toni Aleo for allowing Rumor Has It to join in on the celebration of this new release!

I now leave you with the Empty Nest Blurb and a little something from Toni herself! Make sure to join in on the fun by checking out the giveaway at the end of the post!


Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.

Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.

She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.

Tate Odder had lost everything.

After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanly Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.

But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.

Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?

Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net?


Yo Toni! Do you have a minute? I just want to ask you a couple of questions. :-) 

(Lucky for me she said yes.) 

1. How does it feel to have finished this series? 

I havent finished yet! I am still got a lot of Assassins novels ready to be written. When I am done, I'll probably feel empty. lol

2. Do you have a favorite book out of the series or a favorite character?

Noooooooo, lol, thats like asking me which child I love more! hehe

3. Once you've finished with the series, what will you do next? (Visiting Disney World is allowed.) :-) 

My gift for finishing Empty Net is that my husband is taking me to Disney World! YES I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!! When I am done, he is taking me to Paris or something! lol

Well! There you have it folks! For whatever reason I thought that this was a trilogy and thought it was the last book in the series. I think I read it somewhere on Goodreads. My bad. Thank you Toni for setting me straight and for letting all of your fans know that there will be plenty of HOT hockey players coming our way in the near future. :-D
