Publisher's Summary

Fallon Parker's dream has always been to turn her family's wine company into a runaway success and eventually start a cellar of her own. Since graduating from college, she has worked relentlessly to make that dream a reality, especially after taking a chance on love - and losing. By the time Fallon becomes an official sponsor of the Nashville Assassins, she feels like all her hard work is finally paying off. And then the man who broke her heart skates back into her life.
On the ice, Lucas Brooks is the NHL's leading scorer-at least when he's not in the box. Off the ice, he's a mess, with all his anger and misery bottled up inside. He threw away the most important person in his life and has regretted it ever since. But when Lucas returns to Nashville in a trade, he's determined to convince Fallon that he's a changed man. The attraction is still there. The tension is electrifying. But the odds are stacked against them-especially after Lucas finds out that Fallon has been keeping a devastating secret.

Another enjoyable hockey romance

This is the second installment in the Assassins series by Toni Aleo. Lucas & Fallon’s story is very different than Elli & Shea’s. The author did a great job of making the characters unique. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to warm up to Fallon. I could see why she did what she did, but she was a bit of a brat. It took forever for her to find forgiveness. I understood why she did some of the things she did, but it still frustrated me at times. She kept something pretty big from Lucas, and he forgave her, yet it took her so long to get over the past. I adored Lucas Brooks! He was an amazing guy! Loving, patient, swoony and oh so sexy. He knows that he screwed up in the past, but he is being a better man and is willing to do anything to make it up to Fallon. His struggle with addiction and his determination to stay sober, was inspiring. I felt like he needed to go through the consequences of his addiction, so that he and Fallon could be a couple. Without giving anything away, you see how sensitive Lucas is and the relationship he develops with one of the characters made me melt! I love that he was so close to his parents too. Lucas & Fallon definitely have some serious sexual chemistry! This was another great hockey-playing, sexy, tattooed, sweet, cocky, romantic hero and more HOT sex scenes!! Trying To Score is heart-warming, romantic, sweet, sexy, funny and a bit sad. The story had a little of everything. However, it didn't have anything special that makes it stand out but still worth the credit.

Short story Longggggg!

OK story, however, it dragged on and on and on with the same cat and mouse game until the very end. It is the typical guy and girl have sex, girl gets pregnant, guy gets drunk and high and has sex with roommate of girl, girl catches them, girl doesn't tell guy about baby for 7 years. Lucas (guy) was given NO forgiveness from Fallon (girl) even though she was the one at fault, he was just a jerk a long time ago! Anyway, book needed a bit more "action" and not so much negative controversy. 3 stars only!
