Things are heating up for the Sinclair boys! With one already in the NHL, Jayden Sinclair is hoping to be next!

This has been the toughest year of my life. I watched my brother go into the draft without me, my mom got divorced, and the weight of my family’s issues is heavy on my shoulders. I feel like it’s my job to fix everything while working my butt off in school and tr

I adore Toni Aleo’s books. She writes sports romance like no other author. When I read Boarded by Love, I met Jude Sinclair and his brothers. I love these Sinclair boys- all three of them! Jayden is my absolute favorite of the bunch. This book made me laugh, made me smile and even gave me a bit of the feels. It was an all around great read.

Jayden Sinclair takes the weight of the world on his shoulders. He is the middle boy of the three. He feels like he needs to support and prote

Sooooooo, this is me after right now after finishing this book:

Jayden wants to have a place in the NHL. Baylor wants to be the first girl being drafted to play there.
They were supposed to be two rivals, fighting for the same prize… until they fall in love and everything changes. In a war between loving a person and loving a sport, who will win?


I love books with hockey players so this is always a win for me. Adding that Toni Aleo is probably the best hockey books writer and this is surely a win bet.

Neither of us saw it coming, and we really don’t know if there is a way to score, especially when you’re being Clipped by Love.


You can go ahead and bet your life savings on how excited I was to read this next in line for the Bellevue Bullies series. Nothing could have stopped me from falling deep in love with yet another stunner to add to my Toni Aleo collection. Just the cover alone had my romance book addiction up and interested and what's inside only confirmed my addic

Clipped By Love follow’s Jude’s younger brother Jayden and his ladylove, Baylor.

Two individuals.

So different. And yet, so alike.

Driven.Passionate.And unyielding to failure.

Jayden--- the mature, middle Sinclair bro with the weight upon his shoulders.

Baylor--- the only woman on a men’s hockey team with a chip on her shoulder and something to prove.

Both with hopes and dreams of earning the coveted captain’s

Toni Aleo has outdone herself with CLIPPED BY LOVE.  I didn't think any character could ever surpass Shea Adler, but Jayden Sinclair did exactly that.

The second book in the Bellevue Bullies series focuses on middle Sinclair brother Jayden, as he focuses on his final year of college hockey.  He's determined to be the team's captain, the lead them through to the NCAA championship and to enter high in the NHL draft.  It's

I loved Jayden, but I wasn't really a huge fan of Baylor. She had her good moments, but she also had a lot of annoying moments.

I have to admit, I wasn't as excited to hear that Baylor was a fellow hockey player, but it really worked out in the end.

Jayden and Baylor were not like Jude and Claire, from the last book. Where as Jude and Claire were had a lot of PDA and said lots of cavity-sweet stuff to each other, Jayden and Baylor really had to work for their relationship to work.

This was an interesting book. Much like Jayden I found myself frustrated with Baylor for most of the book. I really liked that Baylor was so great in hockey and knew it, loved her relationship with her dad, but hated how she processed her feelings. Yes, it was due to her past, but there were times I wanted to reach into the book and slap her silly. I hated how there were a couple of times that she hurt Jayden with her words, both those that were said and those that were unsaid.

Ok so possibly another hit and miss author for me.

It's gone from the sickly sweetness of Jude and Claire to the disgustingly awful, nasty, condescending, selfish cow of a young girl named Baylor. Oh my gosh I wanted to poke out my eyes with how nasty of an attitude she had. The backwards and forwards nonsense was ridiculous with her, the middle school mentality she had was horrible as well. It's a shame though cause I semi liked Jude and I hate when an author doesn't like her characters enough

Every time I read another Toni Aleo book, it just reminds me why I think she is the queen of sport romance!

I hated that real-life got in the way of me reading this so much but every time I got to read it, I was completely hooked and loving every minute of it. Yes, the heroine isn't completely likable and is in fact kind of hard to love but I actually grew to love her for it. Jayden is just pure book boyfriend material and one of my favorite from the author for sure.

I wished I had listen to these in the order they were written. Because I finished the Assassin series then I started this one and I feel like I just knew them already and I wasn’t really interested in going back in time.

I understand that these are side players and their stories are not in the NHL yet but I am just sad I didn’t listen before they were if that makes any sense at all.

Because I didn’t really like their story until 3/4th the way through, I almost stopped listening because I was jus

Fans of Toni Aleo will want to dive head first into Clipped by Love, the latest release in her Bellevue Bullies series.

Jayden Sinclair (brother of Jude from Boarded by Love) has his eye set on the prize, that prize being to have an awesome season on the ice for the Bellevue Bullies and to go into the NHL draft post season. This plan didn't include a girlfriend, but to quote the poet Robert Burns, "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry".

Enter Baylor Moore.

I can't even begin to put into words how this book made me feel. My reviews tend to be pretty straightforward, so here goes:


Okay, maybe a bit more.

I almost wish I was in college again so that I can relive the craziness. Ms. Aleo does a phenomenal job of not only describing the experience of being in school, but also the ups and downs when you have no control over your emotions or the person who evokes them.

Jayden's and Baylor's relationship is overpowering from the st

Jayden & Baylor have just become one of my favorite couples!! Toni Aleo is knocking this Bellevue Bullies series thru the net with book 2! Clipped By Love brings even more awesome from the Sinclair Boys!!

Can I just say upfront that Toni Aleo is a 1-Click author for me. I really enjoy her style of writing and her stories just capture my attention from the first page. Sometimes I think that if an author is a firm favourite then your expectations of them are a lot higher. The Assassins is a brilliant series and the first spin off Boarded By Love was just as good. So, this book also has a strong storyline, gorgeous hockey hotties and manages to draw you into the game of hock

Really enjoyed this second book in the Bellevue Bullies series, a spin off of the Assassins series. Jayden and Baylor are great characters and there is some very moving and emotional writing here. While the whole locker room thing is preposterous as not only would no school do that due to liability issues it is an idiotic premise in the days of Title IX, as well as the amped up concerns about sexual harassment and assault on college campuses. It really takes away from the enjoyment of the book t ...more

I was very lukewarm about book #1 in this series so was very pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed book #2 so much. I thought Jayden was so sweet and while Baylor was at times annoying with her refusal to acknowledge her feelings, I sort of understood why at the same time. Trigger warning: (view spoiler)

I loved Jude Sinclair from Boarded by Love, but Jayden took over the top spot as my favorite Sinclair boy. He is sensitive, sweet, hard working, sexy, funny and doesn't take anything for granted. He has amazing skills on the ice (and off the ice *wink wink* LOL) but he works his butt off to keep them and improve them. He is not selfish, he encourages everyone on his team to be the best and off the ice he thinks with his head and heart, not his dick. He was just all around a great character. Bayl ...more
