Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.

Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.  Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.

Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanley Cup Finals, he still felt Tempty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.

But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.

Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net?

With Toni Aleo we are never disappointed!!  Empty Net is another fun, sexy, slightly tragic romance where we find two lovers battling for a chance at true love. 

I enjoyed the romance between Audrey and Tate, even through sometimes I wanted to smack Audrey for being such a push-over when it came to dating horrible men.  But like your own can only tell them so many times until they have to make up their own minds about the men they are dating.  That's who Audrey felt like, one of my girlfriends who kept dating complete losers. Until Tate.

Tate was adorable, very sensitive, slightly broken, but adorable.  I think he is my favorite hero of Toni Aleo's Assassins Series.  He is kind, generous, and head over heels for Audrey, but he doesn't push her to be more than friends...since that is what she continues to remind herself.

There were a few moments where the same issues kept arising, but once you got passed that, the romance was quite a roller coaster ride...I say "hold on to your hats's going to be a bumpy ride."

I am very intrigued by what will come next, I believe we are left with quite the cliffhanger at the end of Empty Net and I can't wait to see what Toni has planned for Piper and her hero who is yet to be named!!

This is a fun series, especially if you like sexy hockey players and the women who have them falling to their knees.  I recommend Toni's Assassin's Series and I hope you all enjoy Empty Net.
