Introduced in Toni Aleo’s Bellevue Bullies Series, it’s the Sinclair brothers’ big sister’s turn to find love in the next installment of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling series, the Assassins.
Lucy Sinclair was no stranger to pain.
She grew up with three younger brothers, met a bad boy, got pregnant by him, married him, and then suffered through a nasty divorce from him. Pain. That was pain. To top it off, she even had to go through the heartbreaking divorce of her parents. Through it all, she survived. All she cared about was making sure her daughter was happy and taken care of. Despite an ex-husband hell-bent on ruining her life, she fought to overcome. She’s gotten to the point that she’s okay with being just okay. She never cared about herself because she never had the time. It was Angie and only Angie she focused on, but that all changed when Benji Paxton offered to help her daughter on the ice.
Benji knew the moment he saw Lucy, he’d never be the same. Especially when she came with the bundle of crazy that was her daughter. His heart wasn’t ready for them. After years spent sobering up and finding who he was without the alcohol, he never forgot he was being punished for not appreciating the love he had when he was younger. Because of his past, he had gotten used to being alone, a recluse, but even he had to admit it was getting old. He was lonely. Hockey wasn’t enough anymore. He wanted a family; he wanted his true love, and Lucy and Angie were just that.
Benji and Lucy were just two lost souls. Floating through life with no purpose. But finding each other gave them direction, a chance at a future.

Rushing the Goal is book 8 in the Assassins series and I have to say this is probably close to being my new favorite. It is hard beating book 1 Taking Shots. Benji and Lucy's story was phenomenal!! The dialogue was fantastic and smooth keeping the characters from sounding boring. The character interplay was so charged and perfectly executed. Because I have followed these books I already feel as if I know the secondary characters like old friends, yet this book is written as the perfect stand alone. It can be enjoyed and loved all by itself. Like any great series with interlocking characters it would be greatly enhanced by reading in order but it is not necessary with this one.
The plot of this book really hits the feels. Benji is like the perfect man. Where are all the men like these guys Ms Aleo writes?! Lucy is a very strong and independent character, which makes her highly likable to me. She feels very real and makes her stand out in a crowd of other books. Benji is the kind of male that makes a woman melt on all fronts. He is kind, strong, supportive, knows his faults, and so much more. The plot is unique and makes for great reading all the while it gets the heart rate up, by making a reader hot and bothered and also by getting them seriously angry.
This was a highly emotional read on many fronts and I couldn't have loved it more. This was just absolutely phenomenal. I very highly recommend it to any and all who love a powerful romance.
