What another Amazing Read by Toni Aleo.
Jude & Claire Sinclair seem to have it all, but what they want has always just been out of reach a family to call their own. Two deserving people might just get what they finally want. Can they hope for that HEA or will they have to wait a little longer. As you read their story you will get totally invested in them and wish with them that they get what they truly want.

I have loved Jude and Claire since the moment I picked up “Boarded by Love”. To be honest, this was the book that started it all for me. I read “Boarded by Love” before I started any of Toni’s other books and after I finished it, I was hooked. (Intentional hockey pun) Jude was the bad boy player that every girl told all their friends they would never fall for, but secretly crave. Claire was a troubled youth who needed the love that no one thought a guy like Jude could provide her.
It was amazing to be able to not only see their love form in “Boarded by Love”, but to now see how they’ve continued to love each other through life’s ups and downs. Coming from someone that suffers from PCOS and as a 20 year old I was told that it was almost impossible for me to have kids, Toni did this book justice and then some. I could feel myself in Claire’s shoes and the reactions that she makes her characters go through are so real that when she was crying about a negative test result, I was right there with her. I can only hope that I’ll have a man as amazing as Jude when the time comes that I’ll want to try for children, or adopt.
As always, I loved this book and I can’t wait for the next installment of whatever Toni decides to grace us with. :)
This book gave me all the feels. I loved being able to catch up with Jude and Claire and see where they were at in their life. Everything is going perfect, Jude is kicking butt in his hockey career, they just bought a beautiful hole and they are about to adopt a baby. But then Jude gets traded and all their plans change. I loved following along with the adoption story and seeing the birth mom be so selfless and I could feel the emotions from Jude and Claire as I read their novella.
