Shelli Adler has known what she wanted since she was eleven years old.
But Aiden has always had other ideas. After spending the early years of his life without his dad, hockey legend Lucas Brooks, Aiden is determined not to settle for anything less than true love. When he’s ready. Now he’s living the fast life of an NHL bachelor. He won’t give his heart to any one girl, but they can have his body—all night long.
The party to celebrate the start of the second half of the season was supposed to be no different from any other night. And when a stunning stranger approaches him, he can’t seem to keep his hands off her.
The next morning, she’s gone, and he’s been traded to his dad’s former team, the Nashville Assassins. All of his professional dreams are coming true, but he can’t shake the memory of the girl from that last party. He wants to see her again. Though, after moving across the country—and without knowing her name—that dream seems like a puck destined to miss the net.
For Shelli, her night with Aiden was everything she’d ever imagined it could be, and she’s sure it is all about to change for them. But for that to happen…he would have to know who she was.
The Dump was only the beginning. The Chase is worth waiting a lifetime for.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Toni Aleo kicks off her Nashville Assassins: Next Generation series with lots of sizzle. As with the original series, hockey—and the passion and culture that surround the sport—is the force that pulls characters together and drives them apart. Fans of the original series will love seeing the Adler and Brooks offspring, Shelli and Aiden, take center stage here. Hockey star Aiden finds himself weak at the knees in the presence of Shelli, who is very much not a self-sacrificing groupie. Aleo’s smart, sexy cast will have you totally invested in her new spin-off—and hungering for the next installment.

I love it but....
I love the book. It is a great story. This is my first time reading about a hockey love story and also learning about hockey and how things are done behind the scenes. The only issue I have with the book is the author made Shelli so desperate for Aiden. Shelli seems like if Aiden didn’t fall in love with her she was going to go crazy. She was basically boy crazy. I didn’t like that. The love should come natural in my opinion. As for Aiden he needs to seek a therapist to figure out his issues because obviously he has so unresolved issues from childhood. But after that it was a great book. I can’t wait for part 2 of their love story because I know it doesn’t end like that. I want to know what happens with the engagement, her broadway shows, Aiden bringing home the cup etc. Good book!
Loved this story. One of my favorites!
Must read book. I loved Shelli and Aiden’s story. Wish I had an Aiden in my life. Swoon! I laughed and was frustrated along with them. Makes me want to go back and start reading the series again Elli and Fallon’s stories. I love it when authors make the characters come to life. This is for sure one of my fave books! 💕
