She shoots, she scores and here I am writing another review for the new addition to my favorite series of all times. Thank you Toni for publishing yet another amazing book. Spiked by Love is the 6th book of Bellevue Bullies. Since I more than once said Assassins is my all time favorite series, just to clarify I consider all Assassins, Bellevue, New Generation series as a big old Assassins family therefore all books in these series are from my favorite series of all times. Sorry it is impossible to pick just one of them 🙂
So here is Spiked by Love…
Say hello to Brooks and Titov families 🙂 Allison, aka Ally T., Titov and Asher, aka Ash B., Brooks have been best friends since birth, thanks to their dads being teammates and moms being really close friends. Ally is smart, sweet, beautiful and a firecracker just like her mama. She is in love with the idea of love and I don’t blame her, growing up with two madly in love parents can do that to you. Unfortunately, she always pick the wrong guys or let’s just say she picks guys to stay away from the right one. Since her teenager years she in love with Asher. Being best friends and trying to hide your feelings is a hard job which Ally became a pro at. When Asher decided to go to CA for college, she finally get a chance to breath and not try to keep up the pretense but now after four years Asher is coming back and everything that she kept bottled up will spill all over the place.
Asher, Asher, Asher… To tell you the truth I wasn’t really fan of him before this story thanks to his as*holish behavior in Dump and Chase but by becoming a pirate, he made it out of as*hole category in my eyes 🙂 Ash is smart, nerdy, funny and super hot. He is a guy who loves and needs stability. After a failed engagement, he is back home and he is trying to get his life in order. He is happy to be back and have her best friend with him all the time but sometimes it is hard fight the attraction he is feeling for Ally. Both Ally and Ash are afraid to tell the one another about their crash and risk their friendship. After a punch and a kiss, Ash is in a hard place and him being overanalyzing everything, causes him to react rather slowly. I am not going to ruin the story by spilling everything here, you have to work to get all the juicy details 🙂 But I will tell you this… Lucas and Fallon WTF did you do these boys. First Aiden and now Asher… They are smart guys but if the subject is love they become the dumbest people on earth… But don’t worry, they do come to their sense eventually. Better late than never, right?
Ally T. and Ash B. are amazingly perfect for each other and their story is captivating, funny, sweet and sexy. I am dying to read Emery’s story but since she is one of the younger ones, I think I will be waiting for that a bit so hopefully next in line is Angie Paxton or Stella. Spiked by Love can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you to read the whole series but if you think it is too much to read than at least check Dump and Chase and One Timer out..
