This book is flowing with so much cheesy romance. I thought the story would be a bit forbidden romance. Instead it is also about domestic abuse.

I do love Chandler. He is such a swoony chracter. His love for Amelia is mind blowing. He is also patience with her. Waiting for her to opens up and finally fallong in love. The chemistry is great.

I want more twist/ plot. All of that cheesy goodness is bit too much. Overall it is still OK read.

Juicy Rebound was the first book in the new spinoff series by Toni Aleo, the IceCats.

We met Chandler Moon in End Game (book four, Bellevue Bullies series) when he signed for the IceCats while playing college hockey for the Bellevue Bruisers. Fast forward five years and he was a year out of a divorce and still playing for the IceCats.

Amelia Justice was also in End Game. She was the little sister to Ryan, was on a college gymnastic scholarship and although attracted to Chandler was totally off lim

This is the first book in a new series by Toni Aleo but fans of the author will recognize this couple right away. We have met Chandler and Amelia in the Bullies series. Chandler is est friends with Ryan Justice and Amelia is Ryan's sister. We also see the rest of Amelia's family and Assassin's series tie in. So basically one big epilogue making readers so very happy.

This book brings the best of all worlds together. We get quite a bit of hockey. We get classic second chance love. And fo

ARC received for an honest review

I have been a huuuuge fan of Ms Aleo's Assassins series, and she has not disappointed me with this first IceCats book (though in my head I am calling this Assassins: The Next Generation).

We have already had the story of Ryan Justice, and now we have the story of his sister and his best friend.

Oh how I love Amelia and Chandler. Right from the very first time we meet them in Juicy Rebound, I was hooked.

The Justice family is a strong one, however the past few years

This is the ultimate second chance romance. The one that got away romance. The get you in the feels romance.

“Or I just had to go through some sh*t ones before I got to the real deal.”

Chandler Moon is yummy and so damn swoon worthy. You thought you loved Ryan Justice well his best friend is even swoonier. <-( I just made that up.) Amelia Justice has been through so much and in the end she has come out stronger woman. Together these two complete the other. They’re like long lost soul mates finally

This one really ended up being sweet, but I think the thing I liked most about it was how Amelia and Chandler had a solid friendship first. I also loved that at every turn Chandler was there supporting Amelia, always telling her good things. After hearing his mother's story, you can tell that is where he got that from and something that Amelia desperately needed in her life. As their relationship changed I found myself really rooting for these two as a couple, that the could work past their issu ...more

Juicy Rebound (IceCats, #1) by Toni Aleo Toni Aleo scores with JUICY REBOUND, the first book in the IceCats series. I had been looking forward to reading Amelia Justice’s story since reading WHEN YOU'RE READY, which was released in the Hockey Holidays Anthology. WHEN YOU'RE READY is Amelia’s parents’ book. The ending of the novella started Amelia’s story prior to JUICY REBOUND. In JUICY REBOUND, Amelia runs into her college crush and brother’s best friend, Chandler Moon, who is a defenseman for ...more

❤🏒Chandler Moon shoots and scores! 🏒❤

I vowed that 2019 would be my year to rediscover authors I've read previously and Toni Aleo set the bar high with this magnificent book!
Chandler Moon is swoon worthy.
Amelia Justice .. my heart aches for all that she's endured but in the end her strength shines through!
Shelli .. she cracked me up! #slapshotShelli
I hope we get more of her and Nico!
Bring on more of the #IceCats
I am a big fan of The Assassins Series and with a book that includes the next generation is something all romance lover should be behind. Amelia and Chandler is a pair that missed it with timing and youthful mistakes. The second chance is coming at the right time in helping each move forward and on in the best ways.

Now this! This is the kind of hero I can get on board with! I will preface this review with a little background info. I just read Juicy Rebound after finishing Dump and Chase. Backwards... But whatever I didn't know 🤷🏻‍♀️ It worked out for me though.

Chandler was amazing. He is the stuff book boyfriend's are made of. Sweet, caring, patient and loving. Not 👏🏻 Afraid 👏🏻 Of 👏🏻 His 👏🏻 Feelings 👏🏻. He knew what he wanted, Amelia. He wasn't afraid to go after her. He was kind and understanding and pat

5 star Review Juicy Rebound (IceCats #1) by Toni Aleo

I know this will be hard to believe, but this is the first book I have read by Toni Aleo. I thought this was a good opportunity to make a start since it is book one in her new series IceCats. This is Chandler Moon and Amelia Justice’s story.

A second chance at love story which captured my attention from the first chapter. I thoroughly enjoyed Toni Aleo’s style of writing and Juicy Rebound was a joy to read.

Amelia is the one who got away and yet

Juicy Rebound (IceCats #1) by Toni Aleo  
Juicy Rebound spells a second chance for two battered hearts. Chandler and Amelia wear the scars of a broken and a bruised soul. He's the guy that has it all, except for the one thing he really wants. She's the woman with a ton of love to give, but a spirit in need of rebuilding. When the one that got away walks back into your life at the most inconvenient of times, can a new beginning be on the horizon? Aleo prides herself on finding strength in weaknes

In hockey, a rebound occurs when ‘the puck bounces off the boards or the goalkeeper's equipment,’ either providing the offense a second opportunity to score or placing the puck on one of the defenseman’s sticks forcing play to head towards the other end of the ice. A rebound that’s ‘juicy’ is one where scoring a goal is at a premium, putting the pressure solely on the shoulders of the player who snags the rebound, hoping the puck hits the back of the net.

In personal relationships, a rebound mak

I think at least half of my book reviews are Toni Aleo books. What can I say I LOVE HER!!! ‘Assassins’ series is my all time favorite series and you can find reviews of all the books from the series in my previous posts. For ‘Assassins’, my wish was for it to never end and come on when you have a whole bunch of hockey players, who starts falling in love left and right and then start popping out babies then you start wondering what is happening with the kids.

I make it no secret that I absolutely love the books Toni writes for us.
And I always get super excited when the next one hits my kindle. They're just such consuming books. And I always get completely swept away in them.

It's just the way she writes her books. They suck you in to these incredible stories that give you so much romance and sweetness, and of course a huge sweeping helping of actual hockey.
But it's her characters too. They always are some of the most relatable characters I read. And t

Juicy Rebound is one sweet and beautiful friends-to-lovers/best friends little sister romance!! Both Chandler and Amelia have had marriages that didn't work out, but a chance reunion in a coffee shop shows that the sparks that have always been between them were still there.

And let me say, Chandler is the epitome of a perfect gentleman – this man made me swoon on so many occasions. He is so patient and respectful with Amelia, never forcing her into anything, although he does make it very clear t

Juicy Rebound was everything that I didn't know I needed! This friends to lovers read was absolutely AMAZING! Chandler and Amelia are both getting over marriages that just didn't work for a million different reasons and wind up running into one another at Amelia's job.

If you want a series with diverse and complex characters, stories about love, friendship and family - Toni Aleo's intertwined hockey series is definitely the jackpot in that area. There are a lot of books and lots of amazing stories to get caught in.

I'm a little bit addicted to this hockey series right now and I just can't get enough. I've been rereading the books I already have read and now I have started on the ones I haven't got to yet.

After he runs into the one that got away, his determination to get back what they had was so incredibly sweet, and sexy that I worried the pages of my kindle were going to catch fire.
My heart ached for all that Amelia had been through and I couldn't wait to see her find some happy.

Chandler Moon is a hot hockey defense man for the SC IceCats who just wanted coffee after practice. He didn't plan on seeing Amelia Justice aka the one who got away six years ago. Both are coming off of horrible marriages that were emotional and mentally taxing. Learning to trust in each other is going to teach both of them many lessons for this young adults.

Aleo classic style of characters with emotional depth and real human flaws draws the reader in and makes them want for more. I lo

Chandler is also divorced, from a controlling woman who was only with him for his money and who burnt down their shared home ... allegedly. Amelia is also hiding out from her family at her grandmother’s cottage, quite near an NHL team. This is significant because her aunt owns a team, her brother was an NHL prospect and his best friend plays in the NHL.
