Lusting for Covers: Blue Lines by Toni Aleo (#143)

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

My pick is Toni Aleo's upcoming Assassins book. 

Blue Lines by Toni Aleo
Publishing date: December 2013
Series: The Assassins, 4
Genre: Contemporary, Sport

Opposites do more than just attract in Toni Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist.

The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lies behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test.

Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Taking Shots, Trying to Score, and Empty Net.


All right, if y'all didn't know I LOVE Toni Aleo's hockey books. They are awesome. Plus, they have some pretty hot covers. They can make a girl appreciate hockey players. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a hockey fan, but who knows I might be one day. Anyway, I'm dying for this story. Yes, I'm counting down. 

Have any of you read any of Toni's books? So, what do you think of Blue Lines cover? What covers are you lusting for?


  1. Great cover--gotta love a sexy back like that! :) I'm behind on the series, but hope to continue it soon.


  2. I still don't want to play hockey but I do want to look at the players :)
