The way she looked at me, like I stole her doll and drew d* on its mouth, revved my engines.
It had been a long time since I yearned for a woman, probably because they usually threw themselves at me. I was pretty sure the only thing redhead wanted to throw at me was a puck.
I would never intentionally hurt you. And besides, my mom would kill me if I did.
She scoffed. “Please, the only thing I thought that man was put on this earth for was to give me you. After that, he was slime.” “I’m right here, Lauren.” My face broke into a grin as my mom went on. “Well, obviously that’s changed. I love you, duh.”
I’ll never finish loving you. It just keeps going on and on. I’ve finished a lot of things. A period during a game, a goal, and plenty of women that I shouldn’t really be bringing up, but oh well, it’s part of my point. With you it’s constant and I can’t… I just can’t finish.
I smirked my way through this witty and amusing New Adult/College/Hockey Romance, which is in all honesty, a trifecta of genres I rarely peruse. Maybe I should indulge in them more often, or maybe I should just read more of the comically talented Ms. Aleo’s work as I was engaged throughout and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I was highly entertained by the premise as well as the expletive-spewing and quirky accident-prone characters with their salacious sensual scenes and inner musings, which morphed into a sweet/sizzling romance. Ms. Aleo has a wicked sense of humor and excellent pacing. I adored the character’s clever exchanges, witty quips, and saucy banter - especially those flowing from the elder Perssons who were obviously the fun parentals. More, please, Ms. Aleo. I greedily want all your naughty tales.
I'm already a Toni Also fan and this book didn't let me down, I loved it. The plot was great, characters that you want to hug, lots of funny bits along with emotion and steamy bits, a bit of everything.
This is the story of Bo and Gus. He's a hockey player and everything she doesn't want, she is everything he didn't know he wanted. He's a player with a standard quote, "One and done", she has a past that won't let her consider a relationship. But Gus works hard for Bo to give him a chance, helped along by a few visits to the ER, will he get the girl?

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Toni Aleo once again a fantastic story that will have you laughing.
In Misadventures of a Rookie we meet Gus Pearson and Bo St James, straight away these two had me in stitches of laughter moments after they meet with the verbal sparring between them. Their friends that are around them at the time can feel and see the sparks flying between Bo and Gus.
“Um, did anyone else see the fireworks”
Bo and Gus show us how you shouldn’t judge a person on how they act ..... you never know what things have happened in their lives. Bo has been let down in her past and Gus is trying to break down her walls and let him in and show Bo he can be there for her in so many ways.
Toni consistently gives her readers a laugh with the antics that Bo and Gus experience in their journey and how they are there for each other and how Gus is their for Bo like no one else has before.
Toni makes the reader feel as if they are part of Bo and Gus story by making us laugh and feel the emotions that are happening to them during their journey.
Well worth the read, this is a stand alone but hopefully Toni gives a some more of Bo and Gus in her other hockey series.
Everyone LOVES Gus ‘the Bus’ Persson! His ice hockey skills are off the scales, and so are his other skills... with the ladies, lol! He's known for being quite the player. So, it's a bit of a shock to him when one particular girl that's caught his eye – Bo St. James – wants nothing to do with him!
Gus repulses Bo – she’d rather eat dirt than be another notch on his bedpost. The thing is though, behind all the nasty looks and snide remarks she throws his way, much to her annoyance she's actually really attracted to him! BUT, she's fallen for someone like Gus before and she doesn't want to go down that road again!
It's extremely hard to ignore the heat between them though, and it's not long before Gus has gotten under Bo's skin.
Omg! This book is one you HAVE to read. I loved it! Bo is so sassy and quirky and Gus is just so full of himself! (But you soon forgive him that), lol!
This is my first Toni Aleo read, and I instantly fell in love with her style of writing. I can't wait for her other book in this series – Misadventures with a Manny – due for release October 9th, 2018.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
