From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Toni Aleo, comes a spin off series from the Assassins: The Bellevue Bullies!
Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I’m good at it…really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships beyond my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.
She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking.
She’s my game changer.
He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling.
I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.
Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that’s my secret.
You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love… or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight?
Especially when you’re boarded by love.
Must read book! 💗

Review: Bellevue Bullies #1: Boarded by Love
Boarded By Love by Toni Aleo 5 out of 5 stars
I just love hot hockey players and nobody writes them better than Toni Aleo!
This is a spin off book from the Assassins Series, so before you read this book you really should back up and read the other books so you know all of the other characters who are mentioned.
But to give you a taste...
Claire has had a tough life until her uncle, Phillip Anderson (one of the hot Assassin hockey players), saved her from ending up like her mother. It was a long road, by Phillip's love brought her back from the brink of disaster and helped her build the kind of life she always wanted but never had with her crack addicted mother.
Enter Jude Sinclair, another sexy hockey player who has a very promising future in the NHL after college. The only problem is that Jude has a history of being a player on more than just the ice. Of course, all of that changes as soon as he sets eyes on Claire and she decides to give him a run for his money. Once he realizes that he has finally met his match there is nothing but fireworks and love. But Claire is hiding a secret that has the chance to destroy everything these two have built together.
I loved this book and couldn't put it down! So, if you enjoy a good old fashioned romance between two young adults who are trying to navigate through the murkey waters of first love, then you will love this book too!
