BLOG TOUR!! Assassins Series by Toni Aleo BLITZ

It's time for another Blog Tour! So kick back, relax and enjoy.





At the Other End:

Elli Fisher has never thought she was good enough. Let it be her job, her weight, her love life, nothing, she was convinced she couldn’t do anything right. She had walked through life for the past six years in a daze, never thinking that life could be good again after the abuse she endured from her ex boyfriend. She is lonely, sad, and depressed, that is until she meets Shea Adler. After doing a promotional shoot for the NHL team, the Nashville Assassins, she meets the hunky hockey player who shoots a puck, shattering her world.

Shea Adler was tired of the life he was living outside of the rink. The girls, the money blowing, the drinking, everything had to stop and it all did when he met Eleanor Fisher. He had never met anyone like her. She is feisty, witty, shy, and simply gorgeous. When he laid eyes on her, it was as if he was taking the hardest hit of his life into the boards, and he had to have her. 


Elli is a little skeptical of Shea, but he knows that they were meant to be together, and he needed her in his life. But Elli just doesn’t understand what Shea could see in her. She is overweight, loud, and not even that pretty, so why would someone so gorgeous and so amazing want to be with her? It seemed that no matter how hard she tried to shake Shea off, he wasn’t going anywhere, and for the first time Elli didn’t feel alone.

But could Elli throw her insecurities out the window and love Shea with everything inside of her? Or will she let a past relationship, and her family ruin any chance of her being happy?

Would Elli miss her shot at love?

Author Bio:

 
Toni AleoI am a wife, mother, and hopeless romantic.
I have been told I have anger issues, but I think it’s cause of my intense love for hockey!
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 daughters dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, and reading the latest romance novel.
I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, and did I mention I love hockey?

Take A Seat. Get Strapped In. Let's Go For A Ride:



1. Where have we seen you before? (previous projects/works)
Taking Shots was my first novel and was published on 10/5/2011. Before that, there is nothing! I’m pretty new!


2. What goes through your mind after your novel has been on sale for the first week?
Panic.
Haha, I freak out that whole week. I stalk my computer seeing what people think and when I get a bad review, I break down. It’s horrible, but I am getting better!


3. What inspired you to write this novel?

I never planned on writing a series. Taking Shots was supposed to be a standalone novel. I was working on writing something else, a regular romance novel. That story was not clicking. I didn’t know why so I put it up. A week later, I was driving to Wal-Mart and all of sudden Lucas and Fallon are screaming at each other over him cheating on her. I came home, wrote the outline and Trying to Score was born.


4. What do you think about when getting/seeing negative reviews?
I mean, everyone has opinions. I understand that but what I don’t understand is why people have to attack you when they write the reviews. Calling me worthless and saying my writing is worse than an 8th grader’s is uncalled for.  It makes me wonder if the person feels better when they do that. It’s unbelievable some things people write but then you get these amazing, beautiful reviews and they really do cancel out the bad.   

5. How long was the writing/planning process?
For Taking Shots, right around 7 months.  Around 8 months for Trying to Score.


6. What was your reaction to the cover art when you saw it for the first time? Did you have any ideas from the days of writing/inspiration?
I loved it. I didn’t want to do the norm. The typical half naked guy on the front. While I love half naked men, I wanted my books to be different



7. Any plans for future writing projects? Any being worked on now?
Yes, I am currently working on the 3rd book in the series, and have outlines for books 4, 5, and 6 written.


8. Top 5 books


    • Pride and Prejudice
    • Just one of the Guys – Kristin Higgins
    • Practice Makes Perfect – Julie James
    • Twilight – Stephanie Myers
    • Blood Promise –Richelle Mead


9. Recommended books
I love anything by Kristin Higgins and Julie James. They are both fantastic writers and make my heart happy! 

10. Why read your novel?
 If you are looking for a beautiful story of love with a hot hockey player and a heroine, who is strong and hard headed, that goes through hell and back to get to their happily ever after,  then read Trying to Score
