In love with Asher since she was a teen, Ally has gone pro at keeping her feelings a secret. It’s been easy... as long as he’s stayed halfway across the country

Asher isn’t just some guy. He’s the guy.

Spiked by Love is the sixth book in the Bellevue Bullies series with tie-ins to the Assassins series as well. It can be read as a stand-alone, but these books are so character driven and interconnected I would recommend reading the other books first. 

Allison Tivot and Asher Brooks have basically been best friends since birth. Not only are their moms close friends, but their dads played hockey for the Assassins. They have pretty muc

So much angst! And I loved it. Ally and Asher have been friends since they were kids and were as close as any two people can get. But they both have a secret that they never want to get out. Their feelings for one another. Neither want to mess up the friendship they have so instead they stay silent about their true feelings and just stay friends. But now that Asher is back home in Nashville and around Ally all the time, the line they don't want to cross is getting s

I’ve read other books by this author but this was a miss. She broke some of the basics rules if you want a believable love story between childhood friends. She did that same thing so many basic authors do and had the h be the one pining for the hero of course the same way it’s been done a million times) completely unable to move on...

One of the most emotional friends to lovers romance journey I have read in a long time! The depth of emotion was deeply embedded into the story making this an angst filled ball of feelings wrapped in heart! SO MUCH HEART!!

The more words I read by this author the more I fall in love with not just her as a writer, but the worlds that she creates. Way back in the day, I lacked serious enthusiasm for her style. Today, I cannot devour her words fast enough!

Spiked by Love was the sixth book in the Bellevue Bullies series by Toni Aleo. The series was a spinoff from the Nashville Assassin series. Although I’ve read all the series books in order (Assassin’s, Bellevue Bullies, and Nashville Assassin’s Second Generation), each series can all be read as stand-alone series with full enjoyment and understanding.

We’ve heard about best friends, Asher Brooks and Allison “Ally” Titov for awhile now. Everyone (the whole Nashville Assassin gang) thought they sho

Ally & Asher have been inseparable nearly their whole lives, best friends forever. Since he's been away at college, it's been easier for her to breathe, to keep up the facade that she doesn't love him as more than a friend; but now that he's back home, she's finding it harder to keep up the pretense. And can it be that perhaps Ash m

I love Toni Aleo, I really truly do. But y'all what I'm about to say has to be said....I didn't enjoy this at all. This is unfortunate because I love Toni and her hockey books. They provide a sense of comfort for me. Maybe it's just me but her recent stuff, besides Wild Tendy, just haven't been great. I'll just leave my complaints from the notes I took while reading below.

Maybe a bit of spoilers??

She shoots, she scores and here I am writing another review for the new addition to my favorite series of all times. Thank you Toni for publishing yet another amazing book. Spiked by Love is the 6th book of Bellevue Bullies. Since I more than once said Assassins is my all time favorite series, just to clarify I consider all Assassins, Bellevue, New Generation series as a big old Assassins family therefore all books in these series are from my favorite series of all times.

Asher has come home after a broken engagement and Ally is happy to have her best friend back. When feelings start becoming a little more friendly, both are a little afraid to tell the other person and ruin their friendship. However, the stars (and broken hearts) have aligned and we are gifted with this Nashville Assassins Next Generation story. I ...more

Toni Aleo gets a win for Spiked by Love (Bellevue Bullies #6). This is Allison Titov's and Asher Brooks' story. Asher is the second oldest son of Lucas and Fallon Brooks from Trying to Score (Nashville Assassins #2). Allison is the daughter of Harper and Jakob Titov from Taking Shots (Nashville Assassins #1) / One Timer (Nashville Assassins #17). Allison and Asher have always been best friends. They could not imagine living without the other. After a kiss, they need to decide if they play it saf ...more

5 star Review Spiked by Love (Bellevue Bullies #6) by Toni Aleo
I am relatively new to the Bellevue Bullies series and why that is I have absolutely no idea. I enjoy Toni Aleo’s style of writing and was totally invested in the story that she wove about Allison (Ally) Titov and Asher Brooks. This is a friends to lovers story that will draw you in and hook you from the first chapter.

This was a well written story of lifelong friendship, of love, of taking a chance and a leap of faith. There is dram

I'm a fan of Mrs. Aleo's and have been for a very very long time. I alway's get excited when I hear that Mrs. Aleo is coming out with a new book. It was no different with this book, so I couldn't wait to dive into this book as soon as it landed on my kindle. Unfortunately that's about where my excitment for this book ends.

We have watched both Ally Titov and Asher Brooks grow up and make something of themselves. We have watched for a couple of books of Ally and Asher's budding romance start. We h

What a Fantastic Friends to Lovers Read Spiked by Love is. Asher Brooks & Ally Titov have known each other their whole lives and have been best friends for most of them, they consider each other their ride or die and will do anything for each other. Everyone knows they should be more but they insist they are only best friends.
You will watch how Asher struggles with wanting more and how Ally is ready to go all in but what you will watch is how everything comes together for them, but you will also

Spiked By Love is emotional and absolutely frustrating. These two need to be smacked upside the head violently, in the nicest way possible.

Best friends forever, Ally and Asher have a secret that they have held onto individually for too many years. They have been in denial, fought their feelings, and burried them under 10 feet of rubble. No way that's getting out....and yet somehow (it's the pirate patch) everything comes out.

I love this series to pieces. This is a book I've been looking forward to. I love a friends to lovers romance so this one is right up my alley. Ally and Asher have been friends since they were young and they're both denying any feelings for one another. They don't want to ruin the friendship that means the world to them. I love watching them slowly see what is right n front of them. This series always makes me laugh and a time like now I could use all the laughs I can get. I love visiti

Ally and Asher’s parents were best friends so not only did they grow up together they became best friends as well. Ally’s feelings for Asher run much deeper than friendship so when he left to go to college it was a mixed blessing as although she missed him it was hard being around him and not being with him.

Asher has ended his engagement and now that he has finished college he has returned back home. The friendship between he and Ally has picked up like they were never apart but Ally isn’t the o

I say this time and time again that each new book from Toni is better than the last. There isn’t any book by her that I haven’t liked. She’s my go to author for hockey romance and so much more.

Spiked By Love is a friends to lovers story with emotion and heart. It has some hilarious laughs, a little drama and a lot of sexiness.

For obvious reasons we didn’t see ice time but we still saw court time and you can tell Toni did her research. She didn’t just fudge through volleyball lingo. It’s refresh
Allison and Asher have grown up together as their parents are friends. Allison has always had a crush on Asher since she was a teen. She got really good at hiding it while playing volleyball as a distraction. Asher has been away at college but now he's back after his girlfriend left him. A kiss will turn things in Asher's world upside down. Does he keep Allison as a friend or move over into something more? ...more

OMG, this one drove me nuts! I so wanted Asher and Ally to get over themselves and let the other know they wanted more. Then when finally it happened Asher was too much in his head and almost ruined things. The best thing about this one was how all of their friends and family chimed in on things, from the start, before anything changed. The second best thing about this one was Ally's reaction to what happened to Angie. I loved that she didn't stop for one second to doubt her. ...more

I love this spinoff series and the story of Ally & Asher is super-sweet AND smoking hot. Ms Aleo intertwines the stories of her previous novels - so if you've read the others, you'll be anxiously awaiting this one! If not, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! Seriously, you don't have to have read the others in this or the Assassins series, but there are so many characters from the other novels that you should at least read the Bullies series to get the backstory.

The parents met in Taking Shots and Trying To Score, so Ally T and Ash B have known each other their whole lives. An emotional friends to lovers sports romance for the next-generation. The Brooks siblings are hilarious and the Assassins family is very meddling and nosey, but they are kind of the best. Emery is going to be a blast when she gets a book, she is SCARY!

This pains me as I am a huge Toni fan but it just felt meh to me. The fact that Asher was engaged to someone he didn't love but always love Ally?!?!?! The story just incomplete to me, so Taco just disappears no charges or the don't bump into each other.

Spiked by Love is the latest addition to Toni Aleo’s Bellevue Bullies series. It was a book that I have been anxiously waiting to read and I was not disappointed.

Allison Titov and Asher Brooks have been best friends since childhood. Their families are as close as can be and they are connected through the Nashville Assassins. Allison is in her last year of college and Asher has moved back to Nashville. While Allison has been in love with Asher for as long as she can remember, Asher is much more

“All women should be treated like queens. Life is hard, and it’s our job as men to care for, provide for, and love a woman good and hard so she knows she is invincible.”
Asher Brooks - adorable dork, super smart geek, sexy nerd and, really, just quite perfect! He knows exactly how a woman should be treated - especially his very best friend, Allison Titov. But Ally has a bad habit of picking the wrong guys - guys who are douche nozzles or twatwaffles who just hurt her.

Your heart rate will spike reading Spiked by Love!

Okay so readers all fell in love with Asher Brooks back in Dump and Chase, Aidens book. Asher was the quiet, nerdy younger brother that we were first introduced too, who was way to smart and had a heart of gold. This Asher is all that and more.

Asher has broken up with his Fiancé after finding out she was really a lesbian and is moving back home to get a refreshed start. Only this time he’s bulked up and put on quite a few muscles since the last
