Reviewed: Empty Net by Toni Aleo...

Empty Net (Assassins #3)
Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.
Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.
Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanley Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.
But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.
Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net?

I am such a HUGE fan of Toni Aleo. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors!!
WOW...Each book I read in the Assassins series only makes me love this series that much more!!! Empty net might be my favorite of the series so far. But it is tough because I loved each book in different ways. 
I have been waiting anxiously to read this book when I found out that it was Audrey's. I loved her in Trying To Score and wanted to see her get her HEA that she so desperately wanted and deserved.
I loved that the characters from the previous books continued through this story as well as the introduction of new characters. Oh how I hated Levi!!  Tate *sighs*  I just loved Tate and Audrey together and I love the direction that Toni took their story. So good!!! 
This was just a great read!!  It was a heart-warming, sad, funny, sweet story with a great H/h that you desperately wanted to see get their HEA. It was such an entertaining read that I did not want to see end. It was so good that I had trouble putting it down. Fantastic epilogue that hinted to the story in the next book and definitely had me wanting more!!! 
Thanks Toni for such a great story and a great series. So much fun to read.  Another reread for me and definitely has a place in my keeper pile. BEST OF THE BEST rating.
