RUSHING THE GOALIntroduced in Toni Aleo’s Bellevue Bullies Series, it’s the Sinclair brothers’ big sister’s turn to find love in the next installment of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling series, the Assassins.
Lucy Sinclair was no stranger to pain.
She grew up with three younger brothers, met a bad boy, got pregnant by him, married him, and then suffered through a nasty divorce from him. Pain. That was pain. To top it off, she even had to go through the heartbreaking divorce of her parents. Through it all, she survived. All she cared about was making sure her daughter was happy and taken care of. Despite an ex-husband hell-bent on ruining her life, she fought to overcome. She’s gotten to the point that she’s okay with being just okay. She never cared about herself because she never had the time. It was Angie and only Angie she focused on, but that all changed when Benji Paxton offered to help her daughter on the ice.
Benji knew the moment he saw Lucy, he’d never be the same. Especially when she came with the bundle of crazy that was her daughter. His heart wasn’t ready for them. After years spent sobering up and finding who he was without the alcohol, he never forgot he was being punished for not appreciating the love he had when he was younger. Because of his past, he had gotten used to being alone, a recluse, but even he had to admit it was getting old. He was lonely. Hockey wasn’t enough anymore. He wanted a family; he wanted his true love, and Lucy and Angie were just that.
Benji and Lucy were just two lost souls. Floating through life with no purpose. But finding each other gave them direction, a chance at a future.

Toni Aleo scores another winner in Rushing the Goal, which combines her Bellevue Bullies and her Assassins series in one awesome package. Lucy Sinclair is the sister of the leading hockey players on the Bullies team, who have all gone on to play in the NHL, while Benji is one of the leading defensemen for the Assassins. I’ve been waiting to get Lucy’s story, who got the raw deal when her husband got another girl pregnant and ditched her. She’s been through it all, and it’s a wonder she and her daughter Angie are still smiling throughout everything they’ve been through.
Benji is a tortured hero, a guy who’s gone through the loss of his family at a young age, and turned his tragedy into something positive by dealing with his alcoholism head on and maintaining sobriety for over ten years. Both Lucy and Benji are damaged, but together they find strength they didn’t know they had. It was amazing to watch them their growth, and Angie stole my heart as much as she did Benji’s. I love this story, and if you’ve never read a Toni Aleo book you need to, because if not you are seriously missing out!
