Overtime by Toni Aleo Blog Tour


Down and out with an injury keeping him away from the game, Assassins’ defenseman Jordie Thomas lives for the blades of his skates on the ice and the feeling of oblivion off it. With no choice but to heal, he’s forced away from the sport that runs through his veins. With everything at stake and darkness setting in, he quickly finds himself spiraling even further out of control. As his life begins to come crashing down around him and his contract with the Nashville Assassins on the line, he’s given an ultimatum. Ready or not, Jordie is forced to face his past, the fears that consume him, and the one woman he let walk away.

Kacey King had her professional dreams come true, yet her heart was battered and broken. With an Olympic gold medal around her neck, she’s ready to look forward to the future but without the one man she wanted in it. She’s missing the key pieces of her heart she left months ago with the only person who was capable of destroying it, causing her to falter in all her plans to move on.

In the game of life, there are winners and losers, and neither Jordie nor Kacey want to be on the losing bench. If only Jordie could convince Kacey he’s a changed man and that he wants her right by his side as his MVP for the biggest and best parts of a life they build together. With emotions running high and the game on the line, can two proud people find happiness with each other, or will their hearts and souls be left in the cold? Will they see that sometimes having someone by your side who knows the good, bad, and broken is better than going it alone and losing everything through the back of the net? They are out of time on the game clock and fighting for the win of their lives.

But overtime was made for an Assassin like Jordie.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Where to start? I loved this book. Ms. Aleo has taken a very sensitive topic and written it beautifully.

Jordie can't "see" beyond himself, he really can't. Thinking that not caring for anyone will keep him safe, he finds solace in the broken arms of a bottle.

When he realizes that he has feelings, true feelings, for a woman, he pushes her away and tries to comfort his aching heart by throwing himself at every woman that crosses his path. Even knowing that he's going to self-destruct, he can't stop.

Only when he's called on the carpet before Elli Addler does he realize what the booze is doing to him and his one true love – Hockey. Faced with the choice of shipping off to rehab or being cut from his beloved Assassins, he reluctantly takes the helping hand offered by the Addlers.

The struggle that Jordie faces is real and dealt with in a truly realistic way; and not only Jordie's struggle, but those that care about him. Having his friends deal with his struggle and help him really rounded out the book. The anger, loss, heartache and grief are true struggles that family face when addiction strikes close to home.

His love for Kacey, once he was able to let the drink go, is fascinating to watch. Slow and steady, never mean or hurried, letting her take her time to talk to him and for him to admit his faults.

I also empathize with her struggle, of not being the one to help him wage war against the disease.

I really enjoyed this story, from the first page to the last.
