Library JournalJordan Ryan is the backup goalie for the Nashville Assassins hockey team, and for the sake of his career he needs to get traded to a team that will put him in front of the goal full-time. Aynslee Shaw is the woman who restores his confidence after he is sidelined with a knee injury (and his fiancé kicks him to the curb because he is no longer a first-string player). But Jordan thinks he can’t take Aynslee away from the life she’s made in Nashville, and she thinks he doesn’t love her enough to take her with him. Falling for the Backup is a short, sweet, and sexy romance between two people who seem to be able to tell each other everything, except that neither can imagine a future without the other. Unfortunately, they’ve gone into this relationship knowing that it might have an expiration date.
Verdict The explosive chemistry between these two protagonists will make readers reach for a fan; the happily ever after will bring a smile to their faces. Though this is Book 3.5 in Aleo’s “Assassins” series, it can be read as a stand-alone introduction to the team.—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.
