[Release Day Blitz + Review] Twenty-Two by Toni Aleo

When Lucas Brooks was traded to the Nashville Assassins over a decade ago, he was a brash, brawling hothead without an anchor.

Well, four kids and a smokin' hot wife will weigh you down real fast, but Lucas wouldn't change a minute of his happily ever after.

During an epic, end-of-season quest for the Cup, changes appear on the horizon, and suddenly, there's a plot twist in Lucas's fairy tale.

This is more of Fallon and Lucas’s story. They have been together for years and have children that have grown up. Lucas is going through lots of aches and pains after playing for years. It is looking like he may need to slow down but for a man who breathes hockey and his family it feels like he is losing a piece of himself. Will he continue to play or is his life going in a different direction? Love all the updates and to see him when his kids are grown. Hope we get more updates from not only this couple but there children also.

I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author. 

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
