Misadventures with a Rookie
by Toni Aleo, New York Times bestselling author  
Release Date: April 10th




Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

Misadventures of a Rookie by Toni Aleo is a standalone romance novel in the Misadventures series. Gus “The Bus” Persson gets what he wants. On the ice and in his bed. A highly touted and skilled rookie climbing the ranks and soon to be promoted to the NHL, he is confident and brash. Bo St. James knows all about Gus and guys like Gus and wants nothing to do with him, outwardly. In her mind and her dreams, things are different. Gus is not used to being turned down and when Bo does exactly that, in epic fashion, it just makes him want her more.


So apparently Ms. Aleo decided that one of the misadventures of being with a rookie would be lots of time in the ER and not just for Gus. It becomes kind of a comedy of errors to see what’s going to put one of them in the hospital next. I liked how Bo made Gus really fight and dig deep to be with her and during that process a real relationship grew between them. The hidden depths that both Bo and Gus have gives complexity to the story. I liked how they fight for each other and grow past their initial ideas and misconceptions.


Overall Misadventures of a Rookie by Toni Aleo is my favorite Misadventures book so far. I enjoyed how the story drew me in and built up and past where I thought things would go. I very much recommend it as a fun, passionate and romantic read.

My name is Toni Aleo, and I’m a #PredHead, #sherrio, #potterhead, and part of the #familybusiness!

I am also a wife to my amazing husband, mother of a gamer and a gymnast, and also a fur momma to Gaston el Papillion.

While my beautiful and amazing Shea Weber has been traded from my Predators, I’m still a huge fan. But when I’m not cheering for him, I’m hollering for the whole Nashville Predators since I’ll never give my heart to one player again.

When I’m not in the gym getting swole, I’m usually writing, trying to make my dreams a reality, or being a taxi for my kids.

I’m obsessed with Harry Potter, Supernatural, Disney, and anything that sparkles! I’m pretty sure I was Belle in a past life, and if I could be on any show, it would be Supernatural so I could hunt with Sam and Dean.

Also, I did mention I love hockey, right?
