Nico Merryweather loves women—all women. Sure, they’re sexy and fun. But “Player” is an easy reputation to hide behind, a way to keep the good times rolling and reality at bay. He’s loud, he’s cocky, he says exactly what he’s thinking, and people just laugh it off because they think they know him. But Nico makes sure no one is close enough to know the truth. With a new season starting, he is ready to play the game he can control. They’ll all be watching Nico, the goalie, but they’ll never know the man behind the mask who is just trying to breathe. He hasn’t ever wanted anyone close enough to him to see the truth, until Aviva rams herself into his ass. Literally.

Aviva Pearce’s life is a collection of bad days all wrapped up without a bow. If it can go wrong, it will. All she wants is to run her business, take care of her sister, and keep her head above water. But with a father who is out to ruin her like he has himself and debt trying to drown her, it’s hard to stay afloat. Aviva isn’t the type to waste time dwelling on her misfortunes or to give up, though. She’s got too much fight in her. And she definitely doesn’t have time to waste on the wildly sexy, rich, showboating goaltender everyone wants. She’s got goals.

What she doesn’t know is that Nico has goals of his own.

And she’s number one on his list.


WILD TENDY is the second book in Toni Aleo’s IceCats hockey series and brings us an opposites attract story filled with sass, drama and a whole lot of heart.

Aviva hasn’t had an easy life of late, and she when she comes across as hard-nosed, we totally get why she has her guard up. She wants to give her sister a good life, and life and all of it’s issues just keeps trying to knock them down. When she meets this fancy sports guy, she doesn’t have the time of day to give him … until he continues to show that he’s more than she ever expected.

Nico puts up the front that everyone expects to see … arrogant womanizer who lives for the party. He simply takes our breath away when we get to know the true man behind the prestige and recognize how wonderfully far he’s come in life. He’s a joy to read.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves to see a cocky sports guy being brought to his knees by “the one”. The hockey action is a tad light, but the emotional depth is spot on and more! Looking forward to more in the series.
