Présentation de l'éditeur

In a captivating novel of second chances and healing hearts, the newest member of the Nashville Assassins pulls a power play to make things right with the one that got away.
 
Fallon Parker's dream has always been to turn her family's wine company into a runaway success and eventually start a cellar of her own. Since graduating from college, she has worked relentlessly to make that dream a reality, especially after taking a chance on love--and losing. By the time Fallon becomes an official sponsor of the Nashville Assassins, she feels like all her hard work is finally paying off. And then the man who broke her heart skates back into her life.
 
On the ice, Lucas Brooks is the NHL's leading scorer--at least when he's not in the box. Off the ice, he's a mess, with all his anger and misery bottled up inside. He threw away the most important person in his life and has regretted it ever since. But when Lucas returns to Nashville in a trade, he's determined to convince Fallon that he's a changed man. The attraction is still there. The tension is electrifying. But the odds are stacked against them--especially after Lucas finds out that Fallon has been keeping a devastating secret.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 The Anti-Heroine 26 avril 2012
Par Jami Lynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Okay so, I read Taking Shots and loved it. I was so excited for Trying to Score! I read the description and was really interested in reading Fallon and Lucas's story. I just finished it last night and honestly...I could barely get past 50%. I loved Lucas and Aiden and their relationship was so cute. Unfortunately, Fallon is one of the worst heroines I have ever read about. She is angry, bitter and selfish throughout the entire book! I totally get why she was mad and hurt, she deserves to be...at first. But I'm sorry, you need a better reason for keeping your son away from his father for 7 years than just "he cheated on me", especially when during your relationship he talks about how much he wants to be there for his kids and doesn't want them to ever have to know what it's like not to have a father. She keeps saying that he supposedly loved her and still hurt her so she was "protecting" Aiden, but that's crap because there is a big difference between romantic love and the love between a parent and child. Throughout the entire book, her sister and friends are telling her she's being stubborn and selfish and she even agrees and thinks to herself about how wrong her decisions are, yet she doesn't change! She continues to be mean and angry until the bitter end, refusing to forgive Lucas when he had gone above and beyond to earn forgiveness. About half way through I literally yelled out "let it go already!". I did not enjoy reading about a selfish, bitter woman with trust issues for 600 pages. I was rooting for Lucas to finally realize what a horrible person she is and move on. I want my $3.99 back.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing. 30 avril 2012
Par SR - Publié sur Amazon.com

***WARNING: May Contain Some Spoilers***

I wish I could say I fell in love with this book, but I can't. I read the first book, Taking Shots, in the Assassin's series, and I really enjoyed it so when I saw this follow-up in the series, I was so excited to read more about it. Trying to Score started out promising and had my attention. Unfortunately, by the time I reached the 30% marker on my Kindle Fire, I lost complete interest. First off, I'm not one to let improper grammar or spelling bother me while reading a book particularly if it is a self-publishing author, but this book was really confusing and threw me off quite a bit. For example, improper pronoun usage were found throughout the book numerous times that I had to re-read certain sections to make sure I understood the story. Also, there were times some sections of a chapter was written from Fallon's point-of-view, but then jump right into Lucas' point-of-view without a breaker to denote the change in tone between characters. Again, I don't allow grammar and spelling to bother me nor sway how I rate a book, but it happened so many times, it distracted me from really enjoying the book itself.
The following reasons are why I rated this a two-out-of-five:

The author creates a likable premise, but I felt it lacked character development and growth particularly the main role. The main protagonist, Fallon, was not likable whatsoever. I know I'm not always going to like the heroine, but if you read this, you'll see how horrible Fallon's character can be towards the hero, Lucas. I understand that Fallon was completely heart-broken, hurt, and scarred by Lucas, but it seemed most of her character traits consisted of being annoyingly bitter, selfish, and unforgiving OVER AND OVER. It was like a broken record and never-ending, and the author definitely does not let you forget how hurt and torn Fallon seemed to be. For a 618-page book, 3/4 of it contained the same harbored feelings which really tired me. I felt like I already knew Fallon's hurt, but Aleo didn't create more of her character except that Fallon didn't think she could trust Lucas again despite the fact that he kept trying and trying even after he discovered Aiden and did his best to show Fallon that he could be a wonderful Dad to Aiden. Fallon also said so many horrible things to Lucas, but what really bothered me the most was how border-line psycho she got with the whole Audrey situation. Fallon used this situation to make herself the victim again, and quite frankly, I had hoped Lucas wouldn't give her another chance. You can only prove yourself worthy to someone so many times, but if he or she is not willing to forgive or even try (like Fallon), you just move on.

Aleo did a wonderful job bringing out Aiden, Audrey, and Lucas's characters. You will easily fall in love with Aiden, because he has a fantastic personality. I felt Fallon's relationship with Aiden and Audrey was portrayed well, but her relationship with Lucas and her parents could have been better developed with more substance. By the end of the book, you really don't see Fallon's character has grown much. We know WHY Fallon was hurt by Lucas' actions from the past, but we don't particularly get to see her character grow until Aiden convinced her to be a better person which is described in a few pages. Her moment of epiphany is described in a few pages instead of a chapter or more, which frustrated me, because a majority of the book delved too much on the past and her pain. SEVEN YEARS people! Also, we are unsure of how her strained relationship with her parents came to be besides the fact that Fallon got pregnant at a young age. We only know that she wanted to be the best daughter possible, but we don't really know why her Dad is so hard on her. Plus, the book leaves Fallon and William's (her Dad) last encounter open-ended. Another issue was Lucas and Levi's friendship. We saw glimpses of Levi, but I suppose we will see more of him in Aleo's 3rd installment of the series with Audrey.

Overall, I didn't enjoy this book simply, because the tone of the story itself was so redundant--Fallon is hurt, Fallon wants to jump Lucas's bones, Fallon mistreats Lucas, Lucas showers Fallon with gifts, Lucas wants to jump Fallon's bones, Fallon hates Lucas, Fallon loves Lucas, Lucas does more nice things, Fallon gets mad at Lucas again, etc, etc. By the end of the book, I felt like I wasted my time reading something that could've been told in 200-300 pages instead of 600. I really hope the 3rd book is better, but I won't let this book deter me from reading more of Aleo's works.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Autumn Review for Trying to Score 30 avril 2012
Par The Autumn Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
My summary: Fallon Parker is finally living her dream of working in the family wine business. She's had to put her love life on hold to make this dream a reality. Now her past is coming back to haunt her. She's working with the Nashville Assassins hockey team. She never expected to run into her old flame Lucas Brooks.
Lucas Brooks has had a troubled life. He's lost a parent, struggled with addiction, and lost the love of his life. However on the ice, he's deadly. Despite his personal struggles, his reputation on the ice is respectable. Lucas gets traded to Nashville where he runs head first into his true love, Fallon.
Secrets are revealed and old pain resurfaces. Can Fallon and Lucas even be around each other without combusting and will they be able to forgive each other of the past to make a new future together?
My Take:
This book is the second book in the Assassins Series and I couldn't wait to read it. I loved the first book, Taking Shots, and was anxious to see whose story we would see next. I love hockey and sports romance! Hockey players are just so manly and yummy!

Lucas and Fallon's story is very different than Elli and Shea's. Toni did a great job of making the characters unique. I'll be honest, it took me a while to warm up to Fallon. I could see why she did what she did, but she was a bit of a brat. Once she realizes her faults, I loved her! I love the name Fallon too. Neat name. I adore Lucas and want one of my own! His struggle with addiction and his determination to stay sober, was inspiring. I felt like he needed to go through the consequences of his addiction, so that he and Fallon could be a couple. Without giving anything away, you see how sensitive Lucas is and the relationship he develops with one of the characters made me melt! I love that he was so close to his mother and father too. The steam level was high and OH SO GOOD! Lucas and Fallon definitely have some serious sexual chemistry! *Fans Self* Oh and let me just say that when it rains now, I think of Lucas!

I was thrilled to see Elli and Shea! Love seeing how relationships progress. I am SO excited to read the next story Empty Net, which is Audrey's story. Audrey is Fallon's sister and she makes her appearance in this book. She is such a sweetheart!

One little thing I have to mention is that editing has been an issue and I don't blame the author. When you hire an editor, they should catch errors. Enough said on that. SO, I loved the epilogue and seeing where they were later on. Love the development of the series and can't wait to read Empty Net! If you like some spice in your Contemporary Romance and sports, check this out! Toni Aleo has become one of my favorite new authors to read! SERIOUSLY! Hope you enjoy the series too! 5 out of 5 leaves

I loved Trying to Score even though Fallon got on my nerves sometimes. But what really made this book special was the interaction between Lucas and Aiden aka AJ. I love a good hero that can cry.

I was so unbelievably excited when I realized that this book was being released early!! I basically locked myself in a room for the day and could not put it down. Still cannot believe that this is only the second book by this author?!? As in the first book, Taking Shots, the author did an amazing job of creating an emotional ride...but without all the far fetched scenarios found in so many books. I love how the conflicts were believable. They weren't drawn out for the sake of drama. Absolutely love Fallon and Lucas. Both are great characters. Even seeing them make mistakes, I found myself understsnding why they did what they did and rooting for them to fight their way back to one another. Oh, and their chemistry was HOT!! It was also grea to meet back up with Elli and Shea from the first book. Cannot wait for Audrey's story, Empty Net!
