Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Toni Aleo comes a spin-off series from the Assassins: the Bellevue Bullies!
Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey's in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I'm good at it...really good. The draft is within my reach - it's mine to take - but that's not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words I don't do relationships beyond my family and friends. I'm happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.
She's beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking. She's my game changer.
He's trouble from the moment I see him. I don't know what I'm thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I'm his. It's a scary feeling. I've never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle - and even that took months. I didn't have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn't give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I'm stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don't want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.
Oh, by the way, I'm Claire Anderson. I'm a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that's my secret. You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It's not easy falling in love...or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight? Especially when you're boarded by love.

Too long

Had to hurry up the narration. I liked the characters and the plot, but holey moly it could have been 3 or 4 hours shorter. Should have been. I hesitate to get any more in this series because of the length. One of them is 18 hours long! This author has a lot going for her, but she needs a decent editor to guide her and help her hone her craft. At the very least she should read her works outloud - she'll see not only the plodding pace of the internal stuggles she zones in on (well, I might add), but repetitive words and phrasing.

Couldn't even finish listening

What disappointed you about Boarded by Love?

There's no way that a college hockey team would be called the "bullies." The story wasn't believable at all.


Has Boarded by Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just this author


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was OK. If a little stilted at places, transitioning between characters.


Any additional comments?

I tried reading the book and decided to try giving it a listen and that was worse because I was trapped having to listen to the entire painful story instead of skimming over the unbelievable, over-used college student interaction.
