    4 stars There s a thin line between love and hate Delayed Call is the 11th book in the Assassin s series and it deals with one of my favorite troupes those enemies to lovers couples Yes, Vaughn and Brie despise each other Vaughn is the cocky star of the Assassins, and Brie is their team reporter They are constantly at each others throats, but it s apparent they want each other When they start to get to know each other and realize how much they have in common, their hate turns to tolerance And their tolerance of one another turns into something I didn t realize you liked anything about me You re growing on me That s good Her eyes sparkled Yeah Yeah, cause you ve grown on me, completely Vaughn could be an ass to Brie, but he is truly a stand up guy Once you see into his heart, you know it s made of gold I loved Brie as well She was a take no crap heroine Toni does a great job with writing those I loved the bond the two of them shared, especially with Nate Way It was so beautiful it brought me to tears than once The banter between this couple was exceptional It was so fun to see them go back and forth Even when they got romantic and became a couple, they still had that fun and back and forth banter that left a smile on my face And their chemistry it was super hot Delayed Call is a fun, sexy, emotional read This is one of my favorite sports romance series and I enjoyed it lots I can t wait for the next book in the series I really hope it s about Jensen and Wren I also hope Wells gets a book in the future I would love to see Toni write some m m I think I always knew you were the one

    ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review Enemies to lovers trope Ummm, yes please There was no icing of the puck in this hockey romance as Toni Aleo once again reunites her readers to the cast of the Nashville Assassins Although Delayed Call is the eleventh installment of the Assassin Series, this book can most definitely be read as a standalone as Toni Aleo does an excellent job introducing and incorporating previous characters Right off the opening pages, Toni Aleo stole my heart as she introduced readers to two different individuals who butted heads Vaughn Johansson is Nashville Assassins top athlete He is sexy, cocky, confident, and talented And so when he meets someone who doesn t fawn over his charm and personality, it irks him in such a way.Brie Soledad is a heroine that every reader would easily fall for She has this personality that instantly grabs your heart especially when it comes to her strong and fierce love for her baby brother who suffers from Down Syndrome While readers get to see this caring and nurturing side to her, we are also exposed to her vibrant and sassy persona when it comes to Vaughn.Well needless to say when it comes to these two, Vaughn and Brie heats up the pages as their sexual chemistry are undeniable The spark and connection were radiating off the pages Hearts will be melted as Toni Aleo beautifully weaves steam and raw emotions in this story of life So if you are looking for a fun, sexy, and emotional romance that incorporates family, life, love and trust then this book is for you P.S Toni If you are reading this review, I hope Wren and Jensen s story is next.

    ARC received for reviewOkay I haven t read the first 10 books in this series I think I ve got several on my kindle but just haven t found the time This is book is a stand alone and you don t need to read the first ones All that being said I about put it down and walked away Vaughn and Brie fought every time they were together It was not nice sniping at each other, but down right mean and ugly at times I didn t think they were ever going to get over it and hook up They finally did and started being nice and then hot and smoking up some sheets For those who ve read the rest of the books there s plenty of cameos by previous peeps plus a baby and planning a wedding.Now here s hoping his BFF Jensen and his sister Wren hook up in the next book.

    What I love best about this hockey series is that you don t have to start with book 1 to understand any of the others in the series I ve only read book 8 and 11 and I ve had no issues following along with the story I know that can be a huge draw for people who don t like series It doesn t mean I won t be going back at some point to read the earlier books, because I find that I am a fan of Toni Aleo s writing Overall, I really enjoyed this book It s a love hate trope that had positives and negatives to it I didn t really enjoy their fighting when they were in the hate stage but once it moved to the love stage, they had really good banter I m a sucker for good banter between a couple They made a great couple but they both have huge issues to get over This book leads you on the path of them helping each other get past these issues It isn t always pretty, but life isn t always pretty When we got the sweet moments, they were really sweet There was also some really great funny moments that just made me laugh with how goofy these two were together ARC provided by NetGalley.

    Delayed Call Assassins 11 This one started off real funny Vaughn is a hockey player for the Assassins and Brie is the Assassins reporter They have a total hate relationship for each other The banter between them is so funny They both have the wrong impression of each other and both thinks the other is an entitled asshole Even though you know Brie and Vaughn are gonna hook up It takes them forever of fighting their attraction to finally do something about it But when they do, it s hot and sexy and it s too much emotion for Vaughn so he pushes her away Their back and forth relationship is so frustrating But it s part of what makes you keep reading And the asshole stuff that Vaughn pulls really makes you hate him at times But the fights between them are pretty honest and I love Brie s fiery attitude and how she stands up for herself You don t want to be in a relationship No But you yearn for me Need me Want me All that other jazz I do Are you fucking kidding me No I meant everything I said But you don t want than to fucking fuck me Is that all that I am, a fucking fuck You like me enough to fuck me, and spit some good game, but I m not good enough to have a relationship with I absolutely love how Brie takes care of her younger brother with Down Syndrome And how that bring Brie and Vaughn closer together Vaughn has a couple of different sides to him He can be a cocky jackass, super sexy and sweet, and the fun loving friend You just never know what your gonna get This was such a crazy cute romance I loved it from beginning to end And throughout the story the author teased us with hopefully her next story And I can t wait for that one to come out.Thanks NetGalley for the arc in exchange for my honest review.

    I am half way through the book, I am so frustrated I just want to rant OMG the heroine is SOOOO annoying The book has a promising start We know the hero and heroine from the previous book The heroine, Brie is the sport reporter of the team, while the hero, Vaughn is the douche hockey player who always gives her a hard time At first, everything seems fine Vaughn is his usual jerky charming self with an unexpected soft side We learn from the previous book that Brie is working hard to provide for her adult younger brother with Down Syndrome She sounds endearing and I really want to like her.Now I am not sure I ever will.Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert Brie started to get to my nerves when she and her brother, Rod were meeting the doctor to discuss his heart issue He was staying in an old folk facility that also took in people with Down Syndrome, but he didn t like it The old folks disliked him, and he felt out of place and dying in that facility He told Brie that someone who approached him about a community that houses people with Down Syndrome The program was great, it helped them to work and integrate and everything Of course Brie was suspicious because it sounded too good to be true Rod urged her to call the person to find out .That is where my problem with the heroine begins She flat out refused to do so She claimed to love her brother so much, but when Rod said he is not happy in his old facility and there is a new opportunity somewhere else, she simply refused to call I know she has a lot in her hands, but her reasons were she was not very trusting, and she felt anxious about her brother s safety and well being But would it hurt to CALL To simply find out Instead, she just kept putting it off.Things just get worse Rod kept begging her for a long time, finally she caved She called the person in charge, Nate and she was awful and rude in that phone call I meant, the person didn t owe her money He offered them a chance, to get Rod a better living, but she sounded like SHE was doing them a favor What a brat Even if she was suspicious, couldn t she be polite in a phone call You are 31 yo for goodness s sake The heroine turned out to be a different person She is bratty, ungrateful and simply awful I don t know what other people see in her They kept excusing her rudeness and awful behaviors She was NOT smart, she got EQ like 3 yo It turned out, the person in charge of the new facility was actually Vaughn, the hero who Bries was attracted to but claiming to hate He already knew Rod was her brother from their previous phone call, but he didn t tell her his identity because he was afraid that she won t let Rod go to his facility Well, dude, you are right She is petty and immature like that When she learned that Nate was actually Vaughn, she was so mad she punched him Punched him Aren t you something The author kept finding excuses for her behaviors, but I am not sold The bottom line is, if you truly care for your family s well being, you will put aside your personal feeling and grudges You will not deny him a better future just because you feel safer that way and let him rot in a cell her word, not mine The least you can do is to find out whether it is a better option Not giving excuses like she doesn t trust it, she doesn t think she can afford it even though they assure her it is free because her brother will be working in the facility to pay for it she hate the hero blah blah blah The author even made me hate the hero a little because he said he admired the heroine for PUNCHING him Pls, dear author, stop finding excuses for her And.when the heroine finally relented to go for a tour in the new facility, you won t guess what happened She wore a shirt that said I know how I look I don t care I don t want to be here.HAHAHAHA You think it was cute What are you, five Woman, grow the fuck up You are 31, can t you be gracious for once 10 words to describe the heroine bratty, bitchy, ungrateful, immature, self centered, judgmental, rude, unprofessional, stupid, awful I am not sure I can continue after the shirt scene.

    It was pretty interesting and comical to see for once, two character s of Toni Aleo s not being gaga over each other first and irking the other like none other Haha While it s hardly a revelation for me, as I m seen this is in many sports romances I ve come across, there was still something fresh and compelling about these characters indivdually, their dual rapport, and the nostalgia I always get when I come back to my Assassins family There s nothing that can beat them for me.Looovved this

    ARC received via Netgalley to honest review Review in Portuguese and English Eu acompanho a s rie desde o in cio e fiquei intrigada sobre a hist ria do casal A intera o entre os dois no livro anterior foi uma preliminar do que aconteceria neste livro.Os her is tem uma face que eles mostram para o mundo e outra bem diferente s vista pelas pessoas que eles amam e causas que eles se dedicam e que eles realmente se importam Nem sempre as coisas s o o que parecem ser Confesso que fiquei surpresa com a verdadeira ess ncia do her i e o lado maternal da hero na Ele transmitia uma imagem de frivolidade e irresponsabilidade Ela transmitia uma imagem de mulher mal humorada e s focada no trabalho.Eu amei os di logos e constante enfrentamento entre os her is geraram cenas engra adas e cenas irritantes ao mesmo tempo Fiquei torcendo para que os dois ficassem juntos logo e imaginando as cenas quentes e os fogos que viriam entre o casal.Amei ver meu casal favorito Shea e Elli marcarem presen a Fiquei curiosa sobre os amigos do her i e estou ansiosa pela hist ria deles.A autora n o decepcionou aos f s da s rie e nos presenteou com um hist ria gostosa de ler e nos deixou querendo mais.Recomendo I follow the series since the beginning and I was intrigued about the story of the couple The interaction between the two in the earlier book was a preliminary of what would happen in this book.The heroes have a face they show to the world and quite another to just view the people they love and causes that they are dedicated and they really care Things are not always what they seem I confess that I was surprised with the very essence of the hero and the maternal side of heroin He transmitted a picture of frivolity and irresponsibility She conveyed an image of woman in a bad mood and just focused on the work.I loved the dialogues and constant confrontation between the heroes generated funny scenes and annoying at the same time.I was hoping that the two would be together soon and imagining the hot scenes and the Fireworks to come between the couple.I loved seeing my favorite couple Shea and Elli being present I was curious about the friends of the hero and I m looking forward to their story.The author did not disappoint fans of the series and presented us with a hot story to read and left us wanting .Recommend

    For me this series has lost some its sparkle in recent books, the decline probably began with Jordy s book I was hoping this would pick it up, not really I particularly liked him And the extended story around her brother was interesting and well done I liked that a lot.However, I thought her focus on someone agreeing that they loved her within such a short time just didn t fit with the rest of her persona and tbh it was idiotic Let the guy fall for you, give him a chance FFS Fine if you ve been together a year or so, but a few weeks Odd.Every other word was ass or asshole Seriously expand the vocab please The extra characters all felt quite new and the dialogue was just a bit odd All a bit weirdly cliquey It was hard to get into However as most of the characters are new it s easily a stand alone book.Thank you netgalley for an arc and I m happy to share my own honest review.

    OMG NEVER, EVER, HAVE I WANTED TO SMACK A HERO SO BAD IN MY LIFE I LOVED absolutely every emotional word in this book, and I have found a new author, to me anyway, in Toni Aleo, to love I could not put Delayed Call down I kept waiting for the train wreck between Vaughn and Brie to happen Then when Brie finally told Vaughn that she loved him and Stop NO SPOILERS Let me just say this, my heart was in my throat and the tears were flowing Then that last interview WOW Then, the balloons Delayed Call is the eleventh book in the Assassins series by Toni Aleo, and I cannot wait to go back and start from the beginning.I was gifted with the opportunity to read an ARC of this wonderful, thought provoking, EMOTIONAL book for my honest opinion.

    3.5 4 Vaughn and Brie StarsThis is quite a pivotal book in the Assassins series because we are introduced to several new key characters Vaughn Johansson is mentioned briefly in earlier books but he is centre stage in this along with his best friends Jensen the new goalie for the Team , Wells plays elsewhere and Wells sister Wren Team therapist Our heroine is Brianna Brie Soledad , Team reporter I still feel a bit mixed about these two as a couple Some aspects of their relationship I really enjoyed they are passionate, fun, feisty and both can be very sweet But, there were times they kind of gave me whiplash Also, I got that Vaughn was scarred emotionally from a previous relationship, but I wanted to squeeze the words out of him so he would just tell her he loved her At times these two exasperated me The subplots were strong in this book and it definitely felt like it was setting up future books I loved the Rodney NateWay storyline It was done beautifully and brought tears to my eyes The relationship between Brie and Rodney was adorable I loved that she was so protective of him Wren is most certainly going to have a story to tell And as for Wells.hmmmmNow, his ex who is referred to in this book , is Matty Haverbrooke, hotshot hockey player, Commissioner s son and absolute a hole of a character in the Bellevue Bullies spinoff book, Hooked By Love He is Avery s twin brother and he was utterly despicable in how he behaved towards her in that novel I am intrigued to know how that is going to play out I hope Wells doesn t go back to him , I honestly cannot see how his character can be redeemed So, overall there was lots to read about in this hot hockey romance The secondary characters and the plot around Rodney had me hooked The H h didn t always engage me but there were elements of their relationship that I thought were portrayed well And that ending was so perfectly them Also, just to say, I thought the opening to Delayed Call was awesome and Tricksie was the cutest HEA YesCHEATING No

    I have never read the Assassins series, but I have periodically added and removed some titles to my To Read list in the past year I finally decided to pick up Delayed Call, hoping it could be read as a stand alone good news it can.The aspect that I thought was most interesting was Brie and Vaughn s connection to Down s Syndrome Brie s relationship with her brother was very cute, even if Brie was pretty overbearing this was touched upon during the epiphany stage of the book.The only thing that bothered me is the reveal that Vaughn was Nate Way I had already guessed he was the kindhearted stranger the second time he was talked about, so it would have been exciting if there was a red herring or something to lead the readers off the predictability path.Overall, I liked the book but it did get kind of dull as it went on I think it could have been shorter and condensed, but otherwise it was well written and the characters were sweet.
