You’ve known Harper Allen and Jakob Titov since you met them in Taking Shots. You know their story already, right? Ha! You only think you do. In One-Timer, they’ll tell it for themselves.
Harper has been hurt so many times, and she has no interest in anything more than a one-time thing, but Jakob Titov has other ideas.
He is looking for his forever. He has his sights set on a girl who is so good at blocking his attempts, she could be a star goalie in the NHL. Jakob is persistent, though, and he knows what he wants: Harper—forever. together, he knows they’ll make one hell of a team.
The last twenty years have been even better than they could have dreamed. But when their daughter comes home, informing them she’s giving up everything for a boy, they know it’s past time to tell the truth about the shutout they scored all those years ago to get where they are.
It wasn’t easy. But sometimes, that one-time thing leads to a fairy-tale kind of ending.

OMG! I’ve been waiting for the real story of Jakob & Harper FOREVER!!! I’ve wanted to know their backstory since Taking Shots and now I FINALLY have it!
Finally finding out just how The Romantic Russian won over the Queen of No Commitment had me was TOTALLY worth the wait!
I loved going back into the past to the beginning of their relationship, and the beginning of The Assassins, along with them, their family, and the team in present day. This may just be a novella, but it gives you all the feels and swoons of a full length novel.
Whether you’re a long time Toni Aleo fan or someone new looking to dip your toe into some hockey romance, this is the novella for you!
Once again Mrs Aleo has done it again 💜💜
Harper and Jakob are amazing of course along with their story! I absolutely loved this book like always. It was great hearing all about their beginning and letting us take a trip down memory lane to remember why this series means so much to us and how we have loved them all since Shea and Ellie.
Can’t wait for Posey’s story and all the others to come.
Loved loved loved getting to read the full story of how Jakob and Harper came to be. They were always in the background in Elli and Shea’s book, Taking Shots, but you until now we didn’t get their full story. I loved how Harper kept trying to push Jakob away and that just made him want her more, and prove to her that what they had was real and going somewhere.
