Review: Toni Aleo's Boarded by Love

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.

5 He Shoots He Scores Stars!
Review by Natasha Gentile

Ok,  so anyone who knows me knows that my number one sport of all time is Hockey!  I mean I’m Canadian eh, it’s our sport, we really have nothing else.  I just love, love, love the game, and no one, and  I mean no one knows more about writing the game than Toni.  I mean it’s like she has Gretzky’s mind. Gretzky, he’s the man.  I have read every hockey book that Toni has put out, and this one didn't disappoint.  Now let's meet the first star.

Jude Sinclair is the number one hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and a ladies' man.   Hockey’s in his blood and well he’s really really good at it.

I love the feeling I get when I step onto the ice.  The way the cool air fills my lungs, making me breathless.  The smell of the ice tickling my senses before my heart begins to race from the adrenaline of dominating the ice.  It has always been like that, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved it.  I love everything about it.  It is like a drug, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

This right here, is why she is the queen of ice skates.  So basically he has everything going for him.  He is the all star of the team, drafts are coming up and scouts are looking at him, he’s really close to his family, oh and it totally helps that he is super hot!!!

He has dark brown hair that’s shaved upon the sides of his head but is long on top, falling into his eyes.  It’s fuller than a Mohawk, and I have to admit, it's super hot, His eyes are a dark green, his lips are thin and light red while his face is dusted with dark hair along his jawline.  His shoulders are wide and his arms are thick; I could tell that even with him wearing a pullover, which meant this guy is toned.  He’s taller than me, and when he pins me with those green eyes, I fell like he’s looking inside my should.  He has tattoos too, and that alone is a panty-dropper.  I can’t see the way I want since he’s covered up, but two are peeling out of the top of his pullover, and when he pulls his sweatshirt up to his elbows in a carefree way, I notice that his forearms are covered.

Can someone please show me where the sign up sheet is for introductions on learning to skate and play hockey? I’m sure I can learn, I mean how hard can it be, and worse case I fall on my butt and he comes over and assists me up!  

So basically he’s exactly where he wants to be, except his eyes land on a girl holding pink papers.  A girl that will be his game changer.

I catch a glimpse of her face, and I am completely stunned.  Big blue eyes, framed with big black lashes.  She wears thick black frames, but I figure it is for style and not for sight purposes.  Her skin is silky looking, her lips a delectable red that matches her fire engine red hair, with a little nose that needs to be kissed.  Hell, all of her needs to be kissed.  Suddenly I’m not all that tired or even worried about my homework; my back doesn't even ache.

Hey Jude, you're going to need a lot more your slap shots to get past her goalie so she can let you in.  You see Claire; she’s had a rough up bringing, her mother, not that nice of a person, and then she got pushed into being raised by her uncle, who plays for the NHL.  So she is guarded, she doesn't let anyone in.  She has a path that she wants to go down and nowhere is there a time out for love.  Her goal is to chorography for Justin Timberlake, which is funny since it is also my goal, I want to do the horizontal mambo with him!  But then what happens when the star of the game starts pursuing you, obviously you let him, I mean come on, he plays hockey! *swoon*  

I’m too lost in his lips and the feel of his chest under my hands to care.  He’s so hard and thick, oh sweet Lord, his body is a wonderland that I want to discover.  When his fingers trail up my neck, that’s when something snaps inside me, reminding me that I shouldn't be doing this.  I pull away but he follows me, his teeth nibbling on my bottom lip before his lips assault me once more.  You know, everyone always talks about sparks and fireworks when they kiss a guy- I hadn’t ever felt that before, but I do now.  But sparks and fireworks really don't do the way he kisses justice.  It’s more like a bomb, a nuclear one, because when I pull back, I’m actually dizzy.. 

So she decides she is going to give him the chance to prove himself.  She can do this, I mean he’s really trying to prove himself and when they finally have sex.. 

“Holy huge penis, Batman.” 

Ok so just for the record that we are taking score, he plays hockey, check, he’s going to be drafted into the NHL and have an amazing career, check,  he’s hot, check, he’s got a huge penis, check, he loves his mom, check.  That’s right ladies, penis came before mother. And he’s fallen in love with Claire, check.  They are going to live happily ever after,..hmmmm not so much of a check there.  You see it can’t be just a shut out game.  That would be no fun for anyone.

You see Claire has a secret, a secret that could be the game changer.

Oh, by the way, my name is Claire Anderson and I’m a nineteen-year-old sophomore at the University  of Bellevue here in Tennessee.  By night though, onstage and in this club my name is Diamond, and I’m the best burlesque dancer at Ms. Prissy’s Gentlemen’s Club.

Will she be able to keep this secret and will he be ok when he finds out?  No one knows, unless you're boarded..by love..
