Laces and Lace

Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other…or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she’s most passionate about. She’s a fighter, a survivor, and has everything she’s ever wanted but the one thing that matters most—love.

Karson is doing the one thing he loves most—playing hockey for the Assassins, yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago—Lacey.

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future?

Can two people with fate on their side find a way back to each other? Overcome all the obstacles in their way to finally live life together to the fullest?

Or will they let those around them and the circumstances they face, along with questions and doubt, ruin a second chance at the life they both deserve?

Laces and Lace includes the prequel Tangled in the Laces, a dollar of your purchase will be donated to the Nashville Predators Foundation.

isho-my-opinion2I have loved each and every book in the Assassins series.  This one was a little different for me.  I cried A LOT during this one [Note: I may or may not have been PMSing].  It’s such a touching story.  Seriously!

The relationship between Karson and Lacey is beautiful!  It’s one of those love at first sight things.  Of course, things happen that keep them from being together and it was gut wrenching. I did mention that I cried a lot, didn’t I?

After all the years apart they meet up again and give it a go.  Once again, people and “stuff” get in the way.

Karson has to be the sweetest, hottest hockey player I’ve ever read.  I loved how he felt about Lacey and how he treated her and how sure he was about his love for her.

Lacey is definitely one of the strongest female characters I’ve read.  Having gone through all that she did and to still be willing to love….yeah…I cried.

It also goes without saying that it’s always nice to see the characters from the other books.  They always make me smile.

I cannot forget to mention that when purchasing this book one dollar will go to charity.  WIN/WIN!!!!

I would say this is my favourite Assassins book.  So beautiful.  Toni Aleo has definitely outdone herself.  I gave Laces and Lace five cups of delicious coffee that made me feel the same way I do when I have that very first sip of coffee in the morning.
