Dump & Chase is the first book in Toni Aleo’s ‘Nashville Assassins: Next Generation’ series, but it didn’t feel like a new series to me. I love the Assassins so much, new and old. This book is about Shelli Adler (Shea & Elle’s daughter) and Aiden Brooks (Lucas and Fallon’s son).

Shelli and Aiden have known each other their entire lives, but Aiden never really saw Shelli. Not the way she saw him. Shelli has been in love with Aiden for as long as she can remember. These two have a

I somehow got behind on Toni Aleo's books, but that is definitely something I'm going to fix soon. Reading Dump and Chase was the reminder of how much I love her stories and characters that I needed and I'm dying to go back and read the books I missed now. Especially when I saw so many past characters pop up in this book.

I love the way she creates this big family unit in the hockey world. Aiden and Shelli's families are super close, if you've read her Assassins s

If this is your first Toni book or you follow her religiously this book is spot on and a can't miss. I could not wait to read this book from the moment it was announced until I had it in my hands. I have wanted Shelli's story since reading Taking Shots and I could not have been more satisfied with how it turned out. Dump and Chase is a wonderful story about a strong women who isn't afraid to be vulnerable while kicking ass and taking names. I love how Shelli loves so hard, she has been in love w ...more

I am so happy to be back in this world and to begin the Assassins Next Gen series. And what a way to kick it off! Toni Aleo does not dissapoint, in fact this story is everything I hoped for and more! I honestly love Shelli! It is fun seeing her all grown up now! She is the absolute perfect blend of her parents, Shea and Elli Adler. I love her fire, sass and determination!! She is quite the amazing and talented young woman! Despite the fact that I end up hopelessly adoring Aiden Brooks, this book ...more

There’s just something about a Toni Aleo book that draws you in. Add to it that I have been dying for Aiden and Shelli’s story and I was completely hooked from that first page till the end. This book started with a bang and never stopped, getting better with each page turn. The Adler and Brooks families are literally cray-cray and I don’t think I laughed so hard at their antics. It was a nice surprise to see all the Assassins but I mean it’s a given with this close knit family. I got to swoon al ...more
A great start for the next-gen Assassin series - this is the one you’ve waited for! We’ve watched Shelli and Aiden since the beginning of their parents’ romances. Shelli is part of the Assassin dynasty - her mom, Elli, is GM and her dad is the famed Shea Adler. Aiden is also part of the family as well, being the son of former Assassin Lucas and Fallon, one of Elli’s closest friends. They grew up together and Shelli always had a crush on the older Aiden. It seemed like this wasn’t going anywhere ...more

I could not put this book down!!! I had fallen in love with the Assassins series when I read Taking Shots. I couldn't wait to read each of the books in the series. The next generation of Nashville Assassins does not disappoint. I didn't think a story could get better than Taking Shots with Ellie and Shea Adler. Shelli Adler and Aiden Brooks come very close to being my favorite Assassin couple. I was skeptical at first, but Toni's storytelling had me on the edge of my seat. When I started reading ...more

5 star Review Dump & Chase (Nashville Assassins: Next Generation #1) by Toni Aleo
I am relatively new to Toni Aleo so I thought this was a good opportunity to make a start since it is book one in her new series Nashville Assassins: Next Generation and is Aiden Brooks and Shelli Adler’s story.

Shelli has wanted Aiden for as long as she can remember but Aiden is fixated on living the high life as an NHL player both on and off the rink, determined to succeed professionally before he finds the wom

I love the Assassins series and now we get the Next Generation and I'm so happy. Reading Aiden and Shelli's story was alot of fun. I'm happy we got his thoughts which at times made me laugh out loud. I didn't expect it to be quite do emotional. Looking back at how Lucas and Fallon had affected his view of love and relationships hurt because it hurt them as parents. Shelli is definitely her mother's daughter she's just as fierce and determined. I laughed,I cried and I swooned which is what I hope ...more

Dump and Chase is the start of another another terrific series. I loved the Assassins series and was excited to see the Next Generation. Loved the chemistry between Aiden and Shelli. Their antics had me laughing and having what the heck are they doing moments. This is a must for all of the sports romance lovers, especially hockey. You fall in love with new characters and revisit other beloved characters. Another great to start what will be an amazing new series.

I have really loved Toni Aleo Assassins Series from the very beginning. Taking Shots was my favorite of the whole series, because I loved Shea and Elli Adler and I still do.

So when I heard Toni was writing the next generation from the Assassins series, I was beyond thrilled. Finding out the Dump & Chase is about Shea and Elli’s daughter Shelli and Lucas and Fallon’s son Aiden…I just knew

Just when you think that Toni Aleo's books can't possibly get any better she goes and does it AGAIN! It really doesn't matter if you have never read her books or have read every single one. The second you start reading one you get sucked in and have to go and read them all.... or in my case re-read relentlessly! The way that she writes characters with such well rounded feelings and situations you find yourself wishing you really knew these awesome people or sometimes even were them.

If you are a hockey romance fan, then you know that no one writes hockey romances better than Toni Aleo. As soon as I had the chance to read Dump and Chase, I knew that I had to read it. I absolutely love the series of the Nashiville Assasins and what makes this so much better is that it is the next generation of characters. We all know the story of Shae and Tate and all the rest of the first generation of the Assasin characters and now we get to jump to the future of their children. Thank you T ...more

Have you ever read a book and felt such a loss when it ended because you want to know how the rest of their lives plays out? Lucky for you, you won’t ever feel that way about the books from Toni’s Assassin’s series because her Next Generation books are everything you need and more to feel complete. My heart is full because this book really feels like the whole family is home and we are all catching up!

From the moment she first discovered what all the fuss about boys was, Shelli Adler designated Aidan Brooks to be the keeper of her heart. But he was older and never seem to notice her flirty smiles or subtle hints. However, everyone else around them did, their families have been close for years, and the two of them were frequently thrown together. So early on it was something they all teased her about, and through the years her crush, and their incessant teasing has never let up.

As they mature

Shelli Adler has Been in love with Aiden Brooks since she was a little girl, however with their age difference, she didn’t think Aiden would ever reciprocate that love. On Shelli’s last night in New York, Aiden finally gives her the time of day, the only problem is, he doesn’t actually know who she is.

I have been a fan of Toni Aleo’s Assassin series since the beginning and was so excited to learn that she was beginning a next generation series. While some next gen stories can miss the mark, Aleo created fun and relatable characters while weaving some of readers’ favorite original Assassin characters.

Dump & Chase was an awesome start to the next generation of Nashville Assassins! It started out with one amazing and unforgettable hookup that was hot as hell and did not let up throughout the entire story.

I absolutely loved Shelli! Such a kick-ass and take names kind of person. She did what she wanted, whom she wanted and never apologized once for it. A lot of times during a story, the heroine changes in someway....but not Shelli. Such a sassy and strong woman and I adored her for

I loved The Assassins from the minute I started reading Taking Shots. Toni Aleo creates a world full of love and hockey. Two of the greatest things a girl can ask for.

Shea and Elli started it all way back in Taking Shots. With their love, came Shelli Adler. A smart, talented, fierce, beautiful woman, much like her mother. After a few years of headlining shows on Broadway, Shelli decides it is time to return home to Nashville and figure out what comes next for her. But not without one last party

Dump & Chase is again, one of Toni’s best books, in my opinion. You get to see the children you practically saw/read being raised through the other books, fall in love. Not only that, but I found myself falling in love with Shea and Lucas even more than I already was. Trying to Score (Lucas and Fallon) has always been my favorite book in the series, but this has become one of my tops as well. Toni brings you through the trials and tribulations that Aiden and Shelli need

Shelli has always loved Aiden but what would happen when Aiden sees what's right in front of him? What will happen was fate steps in their path? Their chemistry was sizzling and when they are together everything is right in their world. The problem is Aiden is.. well Aiden.

Shelli Adler is the daughter of what I believe to be the best ever H ever written - Shea Adler. Lord I love that man, and that he pops up quite regularly in Shelli's story just made this book even better if possible.

I didn't think I could fall in love with Toni's books any more than I already had, but I was wrong. This book had it all: laughter, love, regret, fear, and most of all, hope. Shelli always loved Aiden, but he never really saw her. When she finally has her chance to be with him, she is in heaven, until she realizes that he doesn't even know it is her.

Shelli Adler & Aiden Brooks are two people we watched grow up in Toni Aleo’s Assassins Series but now we are seeing them all grown up and navigating through their own lives with a lot of laughs, tears, memories and a little meddling by their parents.
