Overview

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Toni Aleo’s third novel in her hot Assassins series, the chiseled men of this Nashville hockey team can make anything happen when they go all out for the women they want—even turn a one-night stand into a happily ever after.
 
Audrey Parker is up against the boards. She’s stuck in a job she hates and pining for a total jerk. Meanwhile, her sister Fallon is moving out and getting married to hockey star Lucas Brooks. Where is Audrey’s Prince Charming? Nothing she does has ever seemed to be good enough for any of the men in her life. Audrey’s about to hit rock bottom . . . until she wakes up next to Tate Odder.
 
The thrill of moving up from the minors to the Nashville Assassins was a welcome distraction. But not even becoming the first rookie goalie to tally three shutouts in the Stanley Cup finals alleviates the pain. With the loss of his parents and sister weighing as heavily on his soul as ever, Tate Odder can’t keep pretending he’s okay. That’s when he meets smart, sexy Audrey. Her gentle warmth and quirky sense of humor make him feel whole for the first time in too long. But to stay that way forever, Tate must find a way to accept his past and learn to live for love.

This book would have been 5 stars but I just do not like the f word in these books. The story was good and easy to read. I just wish you writers would leave all these bad words out. 366 pages.

Love the series. This one started off rough with my apathy so strong I nearly stopped reading...which is unlike me. However glad I didnt as the last quarter of the book totally redeamed for the slow start. Well worth the journey!

I thought this book in the series was better than the others. The lead charachters came across more as late teens than 20 somethings but I still found it enjoyable. The female (Audrey) was less whiny and came around quicker. Tate could have been a bit more masculine but he was 21 and that is still pretty young in my book. Anyhow, decent story. On to the next... s.

## I've tried, I'm 100+ pages in, but just can't get into this book. The characters read like 16 year olds not 30 somethings. Glad I didn't spend much on this book.

Important to Read the four books and the Novella in this series in order... Loved every story starting with Shea and Ellie; Taking Shots,, Fallon and Lucus; Trying to Score,, Audrey and Tate; Empty Net,, Jordan and Aynslee; the novella - Falling for the Backup and finally Piper and Erik; Blue Lines... Characters and story lines were all unique and well done and I read all five books in three days... Lots of smiles and a few tears and hockey was always in the background... Emotions of the characters were right up front and I loved them...

I should accept by now that these Assassins books are just going to be an emotional rollercoaster. I’ve read Taking Shots and Trying to Score and both of them broke my heart at least a couple of times. Empty Net proves to be no different. Audrey has some serious self-esteem issues that she has to work through and a pretty big secret that has caused her to seek out only bad relationships. We got a glimpse of how bad her latest one with Levi is in Trying to Score but we get a little bit more of it here. Unfortunately those issues cause her to fight her feelings for Tate for most of the book. There is a lot of back and forth on her part and that man has the patience of a saint to put up with it. But the nice thing is that once she gets everything straight in her head it goes much better for them. Full review available on Romantic Reads and Such on wordpress.

Good book. It actually had a story to tell. Writers need to stop creating these females that sound stupid and are always second guessing themselves and their lover. If there was a continuation of this story, I would buy the book.

Having a difficult time getting into the book, whiney, shallow, slightly slutty but trying not to be, the amazing amount of wallowing in self pity and absolutely risky behavior of all the characters as well as putting up with a useless abuser. She started having sex at 14 for pete's sake, got drunk and crawled into bed with someone.... I'll try a little longer but so far I'm pretty disgusted and unimpressed.
