I liked the storyline. I like the characters. at first I did not like Erik but the more I learned about him the more I liked him. I also liked seeing the characters from other novels in the Assassins series back to see what they have been doing. The pace of the story moved right along.
The things I don't like about the story is all the sex scenes and swearing.
The plotline we do see is a one night stand that leads to unplanned pregnancy. Erik never plans on having a father and all of a sudden he finds out that in three months he will be one. He also gets in trouble with the Assassins team because of all his catting around. So he talks Piper into a temporary marriage to save his job and family. Piper is also his sister-in-law.
Piper is a talented artist. She changes careers often. She has loved Erik for a long time. She believes in him even when he doesn't. She hides her pregnancy from everyone for a long time. Erik never answered her phone calls.
Erik is a good hockey player but he cats around a lot especially after sleeping with Piper the one time. In fact he is on a lot of magazines with different women and all over the place. 5 different ladies say he is their baby's father.
The Assassins are a professional hockey team. They are close together with each other. The owner Elli is also one of Piper's good friends. Elli's husband Shea is team captain. Erik's brother is on the team too. Piper's best friend is marrying a Assassin too.
I skipped over the love scenes but it is hard to skip over all the swearing.
I am undecided on wanting to read the next book. I really like the series except for a few parts.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange promised to give honest review by NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept

Not good. We are four books in to this hockey romance series a
We are four books in to this hockey romance series and it has reached the point where I am not sure I will keep going.
All the books have annoyed me on the "omg, twit" level at some point but most have managed to redeem themselves by offering something else compelling enough for me to like the book anyway.
This book never recovers from the nose dive. We get the only real love scene in flashback. I hate italics for longer than a paragraph so already its not working for me. Also, we see the hero getting a BJ from someone else in the early chapters. I really dislike that crap in a romance.
The psychology of his man ho status based on an violent abuse past never seems quite right to me. Sexual abuse, maybe. Sexual addiction issues that would need therapy for certain but his over all attraction/repulsion to the heroine really plays out oddly.
She is in love with him. Why????? He is a huge jerk and I would want to hose him down with disinfectant for hours but instead she sleeps with him without a condom. Sure, he is hot with tattoos but so what?
The heroine, other than her lame and completely baseless love of the hero, is okay but her family treats her like poo so even though I know them from the other books I no likey them.
They marry. He is an even bigger ass. They separate. He evolves. Cute baby stuff at the end.
I am not sure how I even finished this one.
I like Aleo. I do. I just want her characters to be less dumb and drama-based and her books to really look at the actually very interesting human dynamics that are created. Hotness does not equal Hero.
I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.

Enough with the flaky, insecure heroines already
After reading the entire series to date I have to say this book is very disappointing even for what it is. Obviously its nit a work of great literature but Ms.Aleo repeatedly revolves aroubd cliche and stereotype. Usually you see an author develop, and thus her characters and plot, but this is the opposite. The heroines in her books are melodramatic emotiinal doormats or witches. The author doesn't seem to be able to convey a confident heroine without her being a witch or she makes the heroines spineless indecisive, melodramatic doormats riddled with debilitating insecurity or yo-yoing between. In short, they're often eye-rolling nitwits. The male characters show some promise in that they are more stable and better developed except for Erik. He is really difficult to like and why Piper tolerates his emotional manipulation and why she loves him to such an extent makes you feel as though you've missed much of the backstory. And as a female hockey player, i loathe that Elli used her position as a team owner to manipulate the private love life of a player for her friend. That's exactly what any misogynist sport entusiast would expect and exactly the opposite if whag would happen. Its insulting. The premise for these books had potential for fun light reading but instead its a total let down.
