Calling all Assassins fans: A Very Merry Hockey Holiday gives you glimpses into the holiday’s with all your favorite characters! I loved this! It was so much fun to spend the holidays with the Assassin’s family. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more. It was really great!

There was something memorable about each story...

And you know why? Because authors give us presents like this book. Short stories of our favorite books with our favorite couples.
I love short-stories. They are like mini epilogues and I’m an epilogue whore. So, obviously, I loved this book. And the last chapter about Kacey left me very anxious to read her book!
This has a chapter dedicated to each couple from the “Assassins” series, so if you’re a fan of this series, this a book you really can’t miss. Especially of you want t

OK, overall I think is a 3/5 because I'm a sucker for this series but I decided to give a rating to every story.

1. Fallon & Lucas 0/5. Big NO. I really hate them. He's a fucking idiot and she's a silly woman... So I don't care what happened to them.

Dear Lucas...

2. Audrey & Tate: 3/5. I'm in love with Tate. He's freaking awesome and even when I disliked Audrey in this story, I could bear her because of Tate. A cheesy story with a predictable end, but it's OK, it's Tate.

Who doesn’t love it when authors do a novella and bring us up to speed on the couples from their previous stories? Characters we fell in love with. I would beg to have a little novella yearly. I mean I want to know what they are doing, how they are progressing...

Well peeps, Toni Aleo has finally written a book about the Assassins hockey team and their wives! We can catch up with all the characters we love and can't get enough of-finally!

I love the Assassin's hockey families and this is the perfect Christmas novella! We get to see all of our favorites (Philip) getting ready for the holidays and spending time together. I loved seeing what they are all up to and I love Christmas, so this was just perfect for me! Toni is the queen of hockey hotness!

Toni Aleo and Nashville Assassins fans will enjoy this sweet Holiday novella featuring all of our fave couples: Lucas and Fallon, Tate and Audrey, Erik and Piper, Jakob and Harper, Phillip and Reese, Shea and Ellie, Karsen and Lacey, and Jude and Claire from the Bellevue Bullies spin off series. We even get a bit more with Kacey King who is Karsen's sister, and her "anti-relationship" with JT that was teased in Laces and Lace and will be featured more in the next book Overtime.

What happens when you mix the holidays with all your favorite hockey players and their families? You get a most wonderful adventure full of laughter, tears, oh my moments and yummy smexy time moments. I'm not sure what Toni could have done to make this holiday novella any more perfect because it was simply amazing in so many ways!!

I loved the snapshot that she gave us into each couple and then a sneak peak into what is to come with Kacey and Jordan. Revisiting Shea & Elli, Harper & Jako

A Very Merry Hockey Holiday (Assassins #6.5) by Toni Aleo I loved this book! A Very Merry Hockey Holiday was a great way to get you in the mood for the holidays.
 
This novella was comprised of a bunch of short stories taking place around the holidays about the Assassins Players and their loved ones. It was a great update to the characters’ lives.
 
It had the feel of a television show the way it jumped from one teammate to the next. Speaking of TV show, wouldn’t it be great if the Assassins Series

I received an advance review copy from the author for a honest review.

This is the best romance holiday novella I've ever read!!!! You get to visit ALL your favorite characters!! I loved that! And if you could use one word to sum up this novella... Babies!!!!!

There must be a book dedicated to Babies and a Wedding!!!

To top it off, we get a visit from Kacey and JT!!!

And now I'm off to Bass Pro to get a pic of that Bear!!!!! Hilarious!!

This one was fun to read. I liked how each couple got some page time so that we could catch up with them. I loved Audrey and Harper's surprises. I felt bad for Kasey at the end, what should have been a very happy day ended in a sad day. I really hope that with the next book Kasey will get her own HEA.
Cocktails and Books
I always love when Toni Aleo gives us an opportunity to catch up with our favorite Assassin couples. The holidays around Nashville are filled with a lot of holiday cheer and an ever expanding Assassin's family.

If you've been following this series, this novella is a must (especially as it sets up Kacey's book in 2015).

This book covered the couple's from all previous books in the series (with even a brief mention of Jordan from Falling for the Backup, book 3.5 in the series) during the Christmas / New Year season. It also covered individuals who haven't yet had books of their own, Claire (Boarded by Love) and Kasey (Overtime). The book starts with Fallon and Lucas from Trying to Score with Christmas a few weeks away. Fallon is almost to term with their fourth child and Aiden is almost a teenager. The story the ...more

I LOVE HOCKEY HUSBANDS

I’m so god damn happy reading this. My heart is literally bursting from joy. Not only is it perfect that I get all the main men and their post novel stories, but it’s Christmas themed.

Lucas and Fallon has me smiling from ear to ear. I love Lucas Brooks dearly. I forgot how much until I read this. His quick comments to Fallon and constant flirting is fun. As a perfect husband would, he cherishes her. I’m going to reread his book because I miss his determination and confid

I love this series and this is a cute diversion - a collection of short stories involving the characters from the first 6 novels set at Christmastime. It is a great idea to revisit these couples and catch up with them. I'm just wondering why everyone's HEA involves babies - having babies or getting pregnant. I think only Elli and Shea's story (for obvious reasons) and Kacey's story were not wrapped up in pregnancy. The final story was Kacey's and I am gleefully looking forward to the next novel ...more

This is wonderful collection of stories about Assassin series couples. I wish every book could have an epilogue as sweet and sexy as these stories . One of things I love most about Toni's books is there are so character driven. I loved catching up with all my favorite characters. The story that touched me the most was Audrey and Tate. This was such emotional and tear at your heart strings story. Tate just wants Audrey to be happy and he will do anything to get here there. Audrey feels like she i ...more

THIS WAS MY FAVORITE YET!!! I loved SO Much how we got to see how each couple celebrated Christmas and see how and who they are now! It was so amazing to be able to really know what was going on. We always see glimpses of the other couples, but I really liked how we got to see it from their point of view. It really made me want to go back and re-read Shea and Ellie's story. I can't wait to see what comes next!

A Very Merry Hockey Holiday is book 6.5 in the Assassins Series. I really enjoyed A Very Merry Hockey Holiday and can't wait to continue with the series. I love seeing all of the couples from the first six books in the series.
