Hard Hit by Toni Aleo is now live!
- Single Dad | Second Chance | Hockey Romance -

Kirby Litman has been abandoned by everyone in his life at one time or another since childhood. And when his cheating ex drops their baby girl in his lap and leaves the country, he vows he won’t abandon his daughter, Celeste, like he was. Between parenting, hockey, and mentoring three brand-new young players, he doesn’t have much time for himself. Though, when Jaylin Raventorn crosses his path again, he wants to stop the clock for her

Jaylin has had her eye on Kirby from the first moment they met over a year ago, but his surprise fatherhood threw their plans into the penalty box. Now that he’s back in play—and with a cute new teammate to boot—Jaylin is as eager as Kirby to pick up where they left off.

But will the love-’em-and-leave-’em lawyer be able to let go of her fears to build a future with the man who’s always been left behind? Or will the hard hit from their pasts be too much for them to overcome?

About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

I adore Toni Aleo’s stories and after finishing Hard Hit I have definitely added another book of hers to my list of “I’m so going to read this book again”.
Kirby was the standout character for me in this book. From a young age he has had to fight for himself. When he became a father to the adorable Celeste he had even more to fight for.
I think Jaylin was his perfect match in every way. I know it sounds corny but they completed each other beautifully.
This is so much more than a sports romance novel and I look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.

Kirby will absolutely steal your heart and captivate your heart! Jaylin is a very strong heroine and totally relatable. This book had me from page one and kept me up way too late reading. This is more than just a story about a hot hockey player. Kirby and Jaylin both have struggles and flaws. This story will definitely give you all the feels.
