Wild Tendy by Toni Aleo ~ New Release and Review

Nico has goals...and she's number one on his list. Wild Tendy by Toni Aleo is available now!
Universal -- mybook.to/WildTendy 
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.

Oh Nico .....
In this second installment of the Ice Cats series, we get to know Nico Merryweather (goalie and previous secondary character). As we get to know him, we discover he has a secret and it’s one that cast a brand new light of some of his previous behaviors.
His love interest, Aviva, is a breast cancer survivor who lost her mom and is raising her teenage sister.

I enjoyed getting to know these two characters (along with Aviva’s sister Callie) and liked them together as a couple. I appreciated that something about Aviva called to Nico and made him look past his struggles to try to be a better person. I also think that the issues Aviva had been dealing with made her the perfect person to empathize with Nico’s situation and understand that his secret was just one part of who he is, not the defining piece.

Nico and Aviva area surrounded by a great secondary cast that help nudge them when needed. Both characters experience an emotional growth that is slightly different than the norm based on their histories, but it is heartfelt and touching.

I am looking forward to seeing more of both characters as the Ice Cats series continues!

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
