This has been the toughest year of my life. I watched my brother go into the draft without me, my mom got divorced, and the weight of my family’s issues is heavy on my shoulders. I feel like it’s my job to fix everything while working my butt off in school and trying to make my game better. I have to go into the draft. It will give my family the support they need, and it will prove that I’m good enough. But to get there, I have to show I can be the best captain for the Bellevue Bullies. The spot is mine—no one can take it. First though, Jude is making me go on a brother’s weekend. Innocent enough, I guess…until I see her. She’s the biggest competitor I’ve ever faced. Not only for my spot but also my heart. It’s hard to ignore someone like Baylor Moore. I don’t lose. I can’t. My dad has bred me to be the best in anything I do. I am driven, I am smart, and I am going to be the first woman in the National Hockey League. No two ways about it. I’ve worked too hard. I’ve been through too much not to have what I want. I know I can do it. I will make my dad proud, and no one will stand in the way of that. That is, until I let him in. He scares me. He makes me feel. And he could very well be the one person who can make me want more than just to win. We both have the same goal. Victory. But how do you compete against the person you want to win? It’s not easy. Love isn’t something you can control. It isn’t like a puck that can be handled by a stick. No, it has a mind of its own and does what it wants. Neither of us saw it coming, and we really don’t know if there is a way to score, especially when you’re being Clipped by Love.

    4-4.5 stars I adore Toni Aleo’s books. She writes sports romance like no other author. When I read Boarded by Love, I met Jude Sinclair and his brothers. I love these Sinclair boys- all three of them! Jayden is my absolute favorite of the bunch. This book made me laugh, made me smile and even gave me a bit of the feels.

I love these Sinclair boys- all three of them! Jayden is my absolute favorite of the bunch. This book made me laugh, made me smile and even gave me a bit of the feels. It was an all around great read. Jayden Sinclair takes the weight of the world on his shoulders. He is the middle boy of the three. He feels like he needs to support and protect everyone. He’s focused on hockey and his family. That’s all he has time for. He’s not interested in finding a girlfriend. Then Baylor Moore comes along and she isn’t like any woman he’s ever met before. He is completely fascinated. Baylor is a female hockey player, but she doesn’t play like a female. She’s good enough to hold her own with the boys. She actually plays with the boys in college and has big dreams to be the first female hockey player in the NHL. Her father won the cup back in the day and she’s determined to make him proud. Hockey is her life. She isn’t interested in dating. Then she meets Jayden… Jayden and Baylor challenge each other. Jayden is one of the first guys who sees Baylor as a woman and an amazing hockey player. He doesn’t go easy on her, he respects her and likes her. I loved their friendship in the beginning. How each one feels like they can open up to the other little by little. How their friendship and attraction turn into so much more. Baylor isn’t always the easiest heroine to love. She pushes people away, she is almost too driven and too focused. But she has a good heart. And she has good reasons for being this way. She may be stubborn and bull headed, but she is a good person. 

Now Jayden… Jayden is pretty much perfect. He is officially tied with Phillip for my favorite Toni man. Jayden is determined. He’s selfless, loving, kind and considerate. I love that he never gave up on Baylor. “I’ve known from the beginning that you were different, Baylor. I just need you to know that I am too.” This story had plenty of steam and touching moments, but what I loved most about it was the humor. I wasn’t expecting it to be so funny, but I seriously laughed out loud more than once while reading this one. I’m not a huge sports person, but Toni’s books just do it for me. I love these stories. It was great to catch up with a few of the Assassin players, plus Jude and Claire. Jayden was amazing and even though Baylor was a little too stubborn for me, she grew on me by the end and completely won me over. This is a great addition to Toni’s Bellevue Bullies series and I am very much looking forward to the third Sinclair brother, Jace’s book!

Yes, yes, Kermit, color me confused as well. So before I get in to the things I'm not quite sure about, let me start out with what I do know: #1 - Toni Aleo is the Bomb. I have read everything this woman has put out and I feel like her writing just gets better and better with every book. For serious though, she could crap on some college ruled notebook paper and I'd be like, "Ooooooo, please let me see!" I LOVE her Assassins Series and I ADORED the first Bellevue Bullies book. So... FANGIRL. FANGIRL. FANGIRL. Moving along... #2 - JAYDEN Holy hot sex on a stick, Batman, we must activate the Bat Signal and request that Jayden come hither. What. A. Sweetie Pie. Plus? I loved Jayden so much, I wanted to pull him right out of this book and away from--- Woah, woah, woah, pump the brakes Val, pump the brakes... We shall get to that later. #3 - Jace & Markus These two were such a cute little duo of deliciousness. Seriously, I just wanted to put them in my pocket and carry them around in perpetuity. Other than that, the story line was decent - if somewhat slow moving - and the sex and chemistry between Jayden and Baylor was off the charts steamin' hot. Because that's just how Aleo rolls. Girl's got mad skills. Now...***Disclaimer*** For those of you who follow the "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" rule and/or fall into the "I have no sense of humor" category? Cause I'm about to lay down some of my feels. First and foremost, I would like to say this: If I knew people who fucking winked as much as these hockey studs do, I would start to think they had a medical condition. For real though, one of my best buddies at work has Tourette's Syndrome and sometimes he winks his eyes so much you would think he's trying to use his eyelashes as wings and take flight. He laughs about it and will ask me if he's "Peter Panning" and "flying to Neverland." Which is almost as awesome as the time he randomly spouted "I'm going to Rome bitches" during a work briefing... Ell - Oh - Effin' - Ellz. But I digress. Long story short, there be skulduggerous winking afoot, people. For serious, these folks winked so much... That It Was Starting To Get Creepy In fact, it was almost annoying. Most certainly annoying though? * * * * * Baylor. What. A. [Insert awful word of your choice here]. Seriously, she be like: A more childishly, bratty, immature whiner masquerading as a grown ass adult I have not met. Reading a scene with her in it was like watching a toddler throw a tantrum in the cereal aisle. * * * * * ^^^If this book were made into a movie, just put some red lipstick on this poor kid and hand him a hockey stick and he legit could have played Miss Baylor Moore. I could not stand this chick. * * * * * And I wanted bad things to happen to her. * * * * * If she wasn't whining, throwing a tantrum, acting like a total raving bitch, or making Jayden feel like shit, she was (view spoiler)[stealing the microphone during my beloved Claire and Jude's wedding reception - both of whom she BARELY even knew to finally declare her love for Jayden. (hide spoiler)] . I'm sorry. Hold the fucking phone, peeps. Now, I was no (view spoiler)[Bridezilla (hide spoiler)] by any means... But if some crazy ass bitch (view spoiler)[I barely knew interrupted my wedding reception - after I just had some very touching and emotional moments with my new husband - to steal my fucking thunder, on my fucking special day and make it about her? (hide spoiler)] * * * * * I mean seriously though, how totally rude and just plain selfish can you be? By this point in the story, what with my abject hate for she-who-shall-now-be-referred-to-as-the-c$&t-who-stole-my-Jayden, I was barely hanging on to that fourth star. But after Microphone-Gate? * * * * Sorry, I just didn't like that ending AT ALL. But anywho! To each their own, I can totally seeing people loving this ending - and for good reason. It was just too sticky sweet for me and the rudeness factor - especially after her behavior throughout the book - just made me want to F someone up. #sorrynotsorry

Neither of us saw it coming, and we really don’t know if there is a way to score, especially when you’re being Clipped by Love. You can go ahead and bet your life savings on how excited I was to read this next in line for the Bellevue Bullies series. Nothing could have stopped me from falling deep in love with yet another stunner to add to my Toni Aleo collection. Just the cover alone had my romance book addiction up and interested and what's inside only confirmed my addiction to this author that has, quite frankly had my heart from the word go. 'Clipped by loved' is a lovely new adult book package with plenty of attitude and action on the ice and that's just from the heroine. Never underestimate this author's ability to put romance to paper and her added knowledge of the game on ice made for some fabulous story telling. Jude Sinclair may well have made me fall in love in book one of the series, but I've had to make some serious room for Jayden Sinclair. What he lacks in alpha status he certainly makes up with his larger than life heart and let's face it the fact that he has a chest full of tattoos doesn't harm either. 'Clipped by love' is the best kind of escape that the new adult romance world can offer and I'm as happy as a chocoholic that once again Toni Aleo have proved why she's a favourite author. What's it all about? Baylor Moore has only one focus; make it into the NHL draft and make history by joining her male counterparts by being the best of the best in a sport that is dominated by men. Nothing and no one will serve as a distraction to her dream, so it comes as a huge surprise when she can't stop thinking about her fellow team mate Jordan Sinclair. As they fight for their own dreams to come true they have to find a way to let love also find it's place. Follow the story of Baylor and Jayden as they get clipped by love. What did I love? The writing, the characters, the banter, the sexual tension all of it came together to provide a novel of loveable proportions. Toni Aleo is my favourite author for lots of reasons but her witty banter and instant friendship development in this book knocked my socks off. I was goofy, giddy with excitement reading this book, I honestly loved every chapter (especially the first half of the story telling), these characters won me right over and I applaud Toni Aleo for taking a risk on a different type of heroine. Baylor was a ballsy girl I loved her attitude to go for her dream and not let anything or anyone get in the way. In this story we see the hero chasing after the girl of his dreams and I couldn't have imagined a more perfectly sweet hero for this prickly heroine. I love this spin off series whole heartedly and I'm excited to see some more characters grab some of Toni's writing time. Why not five? Trust me there is nothing and no one who can convince me that this author doesn't deserve a top spot as one of my favourite authors. Her writing style suits my romantic needs perfectly and this book is yet another example of why I adore her writing so much. The first 40% of this book had me grinning like a loon I loved the characters and back and forth banter between them. And I was also blown away at how quickly I fell for them as a couple. However, I did feel like the banter and friendship was lost a little in the middle and I missed the excitement of seeing them develop as friends. (I felt like I needed some more time adjusting to them falling for each other). But with all that being said the ending was fantastic, I was sold on them as characters and it totally pulled at my heart stings. All in all I had a fabulous time reading this book and let's face it who wants to argue with a four star rating? Final thoughts ... I've said it before in my reviews and I'll probably say it a million times more; I'll always navigate towards a sports related romance. There is something about these books that never fail to keep me interested in not only the developing romance but also the sweaty heroes too. To sum up how I felt reading this love soirée I enjoyed this book immensely. I felt 100% committed to the beginning of this book where the banter was at it's most brilliant. The chemistry was Off the charts, and I fell quickly in love with the characters. This is yet another great addition to the 'Aleo collection' and what more can I say? I'm addicted to everything that my favourite author produces. Go grab it sporty romance enthusiasts, you won't regret. Enjoy ... Kisses. *Beta read version provided by the lovely Toni Aleo.*

Clipped By Love follow’s Jude’s younger brother Jayden and his ladylove, Baylor. Two individuals. So different. And yet, so alike. Driven.Passionate.And unyielding to failure. Jayden--- the mature, middle Sinclair bro with the weight upon his shoulders. Baylor--- the only woman on a men’s hockey team with a chip on her shoulder and something to prove. Both with hopes and dreams of earning the coveted captain’s seat of the Bellevue Bullies and being drafted into the NHL. But there is catch…. for women like Baylor, no female has ever skated in the National Hockey League. Ever. And with this male dominated world with not so fond views and animosity of women in their testosterone filled rink, and a brewing love developing between her and Jayden, how will everything turn out? Can Baylor break the mold and rise above her past to let Jayden into her jaded heart? Will Jayden follow his big brother’s footsteps and Baylor in her father’s? Will they have their day in the big league? And even if they were both to make it, how would they make things work? How can two people, a couple more less, keep a relationship in a tangled web such as this? And can both set a path of their own? Is this love meant to be? Or is it simply meant to be nipped in the bud? Read and you will find out! #Wah. I LOVED Jayden Sinclair!! He was by far, the most patient, persistent, optimistic, and alpha of male characters that you can’t help but adore and fall in love with. Not to mention! Make you gals envy Baylor for such a hardworking and responsible young man taking such immense interest in her. Man, did he not give up on her! As for Baylor... boy, was she a stubborn gal! Sometimes her stubborn personality, her insecurities, and that pride of hers got the best of her and got in the way of things!! I wanted to strangle her at times and knock some sense into her! XD lol I’m really hoping that Jace’s story is up next, and perhaps, even Markus! Even though he is not a Sinclair bro! I adored him! Can there be a SinclairXMoore love match in the mix while we're at it?! Pretty please?! One-click this one ladies!! You will definitely be 'clipped' by this book of a gem! ♥

Shannon's Thoughts Toni Aleo has outdone herself with CLIPPED BY LOVE.  I didn't think any character could ever surpass Shea Adler, but Jayden Sinclair did exactly that. The second book in the Bellevue Bullies series focuses on middle Sinclair brother Jayden, as he focuses on his final year of college hockey.  He's determined to be the team's captain, the lead them through to the NCAA championship and to enter high in the NHL draft.  It's ambitious, but Jayden is determined to prove that he deserves to be in the NHL and to make sure his mother is taken care.  What Jayden didn't plan on is Baylor Moore. Baylor is a woman with quite a few chips on her shoulder.  She's the only female hockey player in the men's collegiate league.  She's good enough, to the point she's better than most of the men she plays against, but she pays the price forcing her to develop a skin that is so tough it's almost impenetrable.  Then there's her belief that the only person that will ever love her is her dad.  The belief is so strong that she erects a wall around her so that no one can ever get close.  But when she gets to Bellevue, where her father is the new head coach, she discovers what is means to open herself up to friendship and to love. I loved Baylor and Jayden.  They reminded me of a younger Ellie and Shea.  Jayden was open to a relationship with Baylor and would do just about anything to be with her, including hiding their relationship.  But he was good for Baylor.  He taught her how to open up, how to love and how to trust people with her heart.  Baylor didn't always have faith in herself or her relationship with Jayden, but he did.  He'd fight for her, even when he was so pissed at her he couldn't be with her.  He knew, she was it. Baylor was harder to warm up to, just because Toni Aleo did an awesome job of making the wall Baylor built around herself almost visible to readers.  But as Jayden chipped away at Baylor, it became easier and easier to like her.  When she resorted to her old self, as a reader I understood why and didn't hold it against her.  In the end, I was pulling for her to step outside her comfort zone and go after what her heart wanted. In my opinion, this is the best book Toni Aleo's written.  It has all the elements that make it a Toni Aleo book, but an added emotional element to these characters that made me fall hard for them.  I can't wait to see what Toni has coming next for this series.

    I loved Jayden, but I wasn't really a huge fan of Baylor. She had her good moments, but she also had a lot of annoying moments. I have to admit, I wasn't as excited to hear that Baylor was a fellow hockey player, but it really worked out in the end. Jayden and Baylor were not like Jude and Claire, from the last book. Where as Jude and Claire were had a lot of PDA and said lots of cavity-sweet stuff to each other, Jayden and Baylor really had to work for their relationship to work.

I loved Jace, and can't wait to read his book, hopefully it's his next. I really have no idea who he'll be paired up with. Since this book he was hooking up with one of Baylor's best friend.

    This was an interesting book. Much like Jayden I found myself frustrated with Baylor for most of the book. I really liked that Baylor was so great in hockey and knew it, loved her relationship with her dad, but hated how she processed her feelings. Yes, it was due to her past, but there were times I wanted to reach into the book and slap her silly. I hated how there were a couple of times that she hurt Jayden with her words, both those that were said and those that were unsaid. I did love how mos This was an interesting book.

    Ok so possibly another hit and miss author for me. It's gone from the sickly sweetness of Jude and Claire to the disgustingly awful, nasty, condescending, selfish cow of a young girl named Baylor. Oh my gosh I wanted to poke out my eyes with how nasty of an attitude she had. The backwards and forwards nonsense was ridiculous with her, the middle school mentality she had was horrible as well. It's a shame though cause I semi liked Jude and I hate when an author doesn't like her characters enough Ok so possibly another hit and miss author for me.

I hated that real-life got in the way of me reading this so much but every time I got to read it, I was completely hooked and loving every minute of it. Yes, the heroine isn't completely likable and is in fact kind of hard to love but I actually grew to love her for it.

My reviews tend to be pretty straightforward, so here goes: READ THIS BOOK IMMEDIATELY!! Okay, maybe a bit more. I almost wish I was in college again so that I can relive the craziness. Ms. Aleo does a phenomenal job of not only describing the experience of being in school, but also the ups and downs when you have no control over your emotions or the person who evokes them. Jayden's and Baylor's relationship is overpowering from the start and never has a dull moment. It seemed almost effortless for Ms. Aleo to switch from the POV of Jayden to Baylor and back again. Being able to slip into their heads (and hearts) truly made me feel as though I was in the story rather than an observer. Don't fret if you haven't read Boarded by Love (though you really should!!) - Jayden's and Baylor's story can certainly be read as a standalone. And don't think that you have to be a hockey fan (though, again, you should be!) But you should be concerned if you miss out on such a strong and beautiful story!!!

    As I read this book, I couldn't keep from getting frustrated with Baylor. She was such a hard nut to crack. I was beginning to wonder how this story was ever gonna get to the HEA and it finally did. Loved it!

Clipped By Love brings even more awesome from the Sinclair Boys!! I thought no one could be better than Jude after reading Boarded by Love last year, because he & Claire were just magic but Jayden Sinclair & Baylor Moore have chemistry for days from the first look they each have of the other!! The sexual tension, the animosity, the need to best the other and the need that they have for the other were just perfection for me!! I loved the way that Baylor gave just as good as she could take and when Jayden says that she is a "hybrid", well that was just the best description! Baylor is strong, she is beautiful, she is a hockey player thru and thru; but she's also shy and unsure and a bit awkward socially and completely emotionally insecure. As much as she doesn't want to be vulnerable, she is with Jayden and she hates it and loves it at the same time because he makes her feel safe and cared for like a girl! Jayden loves all her messy parts and I love when he calls her a beautiful disaster, because she is and well he is too in a way. Jayden has always felt like he is responsible for those he loves, especially his family and he has taken a lot onto his shoulders. He and Baylor get each other in a way that no one has ever gotten the other before. He knows that Baylor is something special and something that he needs, and he knows that it's not going to be easy. Watching these two fight for what they want and learn to be what the other needs was everything and more!! Clipped by Love was EVERYTHING and oh so much more! It was lots of humor between the Sinclair brothers (Jude, Jayden and Jace are hilarious together!), the teammates that become real friends for Baylor (Markus is the best) as well as the only other friends she has in Delanie & Mandie (those two are a mess!). It was lots of competition and proving who is the best but finding that as a team they are even better. It was the sexual tension and learning to find out what real love looks and feels like. It was learning to trust, not only the people that matter the most, but also trust in themselves. It was learning to have faith and when to let go and just be. Plus getting sneaks at some of my past faves at Jude & Claire's wedding, hello Phillip & Reese and Elli & Shea!! Toni Aleo did her fans proud as always!! Loved it so much!!

Toni Aleo never ceases to amaze me. Just when I think that her stories cannot get any better she writes another one.   Baylor is a fantastic heroine. I love that she doesn’t give up and sets high goals for herself. Her father and coach won the Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins and forsake his hockey career to raise her after her mother left them when she was a newborn. She is set on making her father proud. She is stubborn to a fault.   Jayden is a great guy and brother. He is loyal and responsible. He looks out for those that he considers his.   I appreciated how Jaden and Baylor challenged each other. I love that Jaden considers Baylor his hockey twin.   I was thrilled that some of the Assassin series characters make an appearance in this book. I was also excited to get an update on the lives of Jayden’s older brother Jude and Claire.   I think the plot was very realistic because in 1992 Manon Rheaume became the first woman to play in an NHL exhibition game as a goalie for the Tampa Bay Lightning versus the St. Louis Blues. Plus, the NHL and USA Hockey have been actively promoting the sport to young female hockey players. My son plays travel hockey. We have seen many girls that have given the boys a run for their money. It is only a matter of time until someone tries for the draft.   Toni Aleo wrote another phenomenal book. She is very convincing. The individuals have their ups and downs. They show tremendous growth. She does an amazing job making you fall in love with the characters in the series. I ended up with a serious book hangover from not being able to put this one down and get some sleep. It was well worth it.   If you love sports romances and have not tried the Bellevue Bullies or Assassins Series you need to give them a shot.

I really enjoy her style of writing and her stories just capture my attention from the first page.

So, this book also has a strong storyline, gorgeous hockey hotties and manages to draw you into the game of hockey without losing your attention with too much sporty info. The hockey scenes are fast paced and exciting, and as someone who has never watched a match before I am now quite addicted. Me Aleo clearly has an undying love of the sport. It's contagious! The thing about this book that surprised me, was that I thought she took a real chance on writing the heroine, Baylor, the way she did. Baylor is alpha. She is driven, single minded and closed off emotionally. I thought it was pretty ballsy to write a character that could potentially alienate herself from the reader because of her alpha tendencies whilst Jayden , the hero, is more demonstratively sensitive and personable. Yet, I really loved both of them. Ms Aleo always writes about strong women but there is something unique about Baylor. She has such a vulnerability that's hidden by a truly prickly exterior. Jayden is relentless in cracking the wall around her heart. I winced when he says something to her near the beginning of the story. Then a couple of things happened where I wanted to slap him for Baylor but ultimately, these two are made for each other. Lots of humour, hockey action and seriously HOT CHEMISTRY. Also, the secondary characters round it all out perfectly. Markus and Jace are brilliant. Good to see Jude, Claire, Elli, Shea and Phillip too. Ultimately, it's a beautiful love story of two soul mates. 5 stars are just not enough.

    Really enjoyed this second book in the Bellevue Bullies series, a spin off of the Assassins series. Jayden and Baylor are great characters and there is some very moving and emotional writing here. While the whole locker room thing is preposterous as not only would no school do that due to liability issues it is an idiotic premise in the days of Title IX, as well as the amped up concerns about sexual harassment and assault on college campuses.

It really takes away from the enjoyment of the book though I get the author wanting to use the dynamic as a plot device. It was just a bit hard for me to suspend disbelief that much. I do enjoy the series and the way these characters have been crafted and I’m looking forward the the third and final book in this series.

    I was very lukewarm about book #1 in this series so was very pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed book #2 so much. I thought Jayden was so sweet and while Baylor was at times annoying with her refusal to acknowledge her feelings, I sort of understood why at the same time. Trigger warning: (view spoiler)[There is an attempted rape which I could have done without but it is somewhat a plot vehicle, though I still don't think it was necessary.

    "But love isnt' controllable Baylor! It's hard, it hurts, and fucking hell, it's not predictable! It isn't a hockey game, it isn't like controlling a puck with a stick. It's real ad it can knock you on your ass." I love the Sinclair brothers!!! I have read the first book – who starred in Jude, and I was eagerly waiting for this one. Baylor is one of the most determined, strong, and ambitious heroine I have ever encountered. She can be too much, her attitude could rival some men, her temper needs "But love isnt' controllable Baylor! It's hard, it hurts, and fucking hell, it's not predictable! It isn't a hockey game, it isn't like controlling a puck with a stick. It's real ad it can knock you on your ass." I love the Sinclair brothers!!! I have read the first book – who starred in Jude, and I was eagerly waiting for this one. Baylor is one of the most determined, strong, and ambitious heroine I have ever encountered. She can be too much, her attitude could rival some men, her temper needs to be in check at times, but hey – this girl could prove to be the first one to be drafted in the NHL. Because she plays really, really well. Enough to topple all the men in college hockey. She had been trained that way. She has been in skates even before she can walk. She was trained to be the best, and determined to be the best there is. Now if she can only tweak the attitude a little, live life rather than competing in every turn – this girl could have been perfect. If Baylor is a worry wart and control freak, Jayden worries, but he was set off to live his life (as pushed by Jude, the other hot Sinclair brother we met at Boarded by Love). It saddens him that he didn’t get to be in the draft when Jude did, but his agent insisted he needed to have one more year in college to hone his skills. What came unexpectedly was meeting a girl when he went into a vacation with his brothers. It was the most trying time in their lives: Jude being away, their father leaving them and their mom struggling. He worries for everyone, I was glad Jude talked to him. He still worries, but he gets to enjoy life too. He had never met his match, until Baylor. Not only he challenges him on ice (or street-hockey), but off-ice as well. It would have been perfect, but he got all gentlemanly (didn’t handle things real smooth!) instead, he broke her heart. He thought he was never going to see her again – much to his surprise. Because Baylor was now in Nashville. Playing for his team. With her father as coach. Trying to get the captainship of the team. Well, not if he can’t help it. What I love about this Sinclair brother is it didn’t bother him that a girl could be as good as him. He wasn’t a chauvinist who thought girls couldn’t play college hockey as roughly as them. Jayden knew he was good, and he knew Baylor was great as well. But being on the same team, fighting over a championship after what happened could indeed get rough. The passion these two has for the sports is overwhelming. It makes the competition a little bit fiercer, but nonetheless healthy. I love how Jayden is protective of Baylor, and how he tries to get into her skin. But what I love the most is the change in Baylor. From enjoying (or living) in solitude, she was taught not only by Jayden, but by Jace, and sweet Markus that having friends (besides her two crazy female friends who are twins) can be great as well. So day by day, she tries to put down those walls, be a member of a team and finally realize that they were more than just a group of men (and woman) who play hockey. They were a family. Their chemistry was off the charts, they tried to fight it at first (or Baylor) did, but if she was determined, Jayden was persistent. He wore her off, she agreed if only to keep it a secret. She didn’t want anything to change. She wanted to protect him from her father. But I was right when I thought keeping it a secret was a disaster waiting to happen. Jayden was a swoon-worthy boyfriend. He cares about her, he wants to show her off to the world. If she will only let him. He respects her decisions, and he wouldn’t push her off her comfort zones. So, despite the fact the emotions he was feeling was a bit overwhelming that it shakes his chest fiercely, he bottled it up, until he thought she was ready to let him all in. Problem is, this girl is a control freak. And love is a very uncontrollable emotion. Would they ever make it? I enjoyed Clipped by Love as much as I enjoyed the first book. It made me laughed at times, fall in love in most pages, and had my adrenaline pumped up during those games I felt I was watching while reading it. More than that passionate romance friendship and love for sports, this story taught me that you make things happen if you are determined, and stubborn. But sometimes you cannot do it alone, you need another people to boost you up and support you for you to reach your maximum potential.

With his mother getting a divorce, he is doing all he can to make things easy for her. He is after all the family’s fixer. He is doing it all, going to school, conditioning for the upcoming hockey season and getting ready for the draft and working two jobs. This year his eyes are set on being the Capitan for the Bellevue Bullies, the spot he knows he deserves. When his brother Jude plans an all brother’s weekend, he meets the one girl that changes his life. Baylor Moore was raised by her father. She never loses, she can’t it isn’t in her DNA. She was raised to be the best at everything she does. She is beautiful, smart and driven and is on the path to be the first woman in the National Hockey League. She will not give up for anything. When her friends beg her to act like a girl for one weekend, she gives in. When she meets Jayden, she does the one thing she never swore she would do again…. Let someone in. The thing is he makes her feel, he makes her better and it scares the bejeezus out of her. They immediately hit it off. Both super competitive and both extremely attracted to one another. The thing is long distance relationships never work but when fate intervenes, they find themselves face to face again and things get a little crazy. I loved how caring Jayden is. He does anything and everything to make sure his family is okay. His heart breaks for his mom. The thing with Jayden though is that he is a natural leader. He is smart and very observant and determined. He always gets what he wants. I adored the dedication and determination in Baylor. I have to admit, she did get on my nerves a few time but definitely redeemed herself. She is brave. Hockey is a man’s game and needless to say she was not very welcomed with some of the players. Baylor did not have a female role model in her life so she is very much a tomboy. When she does get all girlied up she is absolutely stunning. The chemistry that Jayden and Baylor have is off the charts and I loved how he set the example to others when it came to Baylor and her playing hockey. Jayden stole my heart from the get go. He is just so dedicated and passionate in everything he does. Baylor is just so stiff but Jayden is able to bring out such an amazing soft side to her. It is a story with such a great message. No matter your gender, you can make anything happen if you put your mind to it. Yes, you may fall more than you stand but it only makes you stronger. It is also a story about self-discovery, accepting friendships and trust, learning to work as a team but most of all learning to love. Toni Aleo has written another successful installment in the Bellevue Bullie series. I can’t wait for book #3!

This has to be by far my absolute favorite couple so far. Baylor and Jayden were raw, real and sexy characters. They were both strong willed and confident. They were devoted to what they love and fought for what they wanted. It was refreshing to not have a heroine who was whiny or not confident. One gentlemanly mistake Jayden makes and Baylor will make him work at what he wants. Their banter and sexual tension was so real. Even the sub-characters were funny with their rips and teasing. But once Baylor finally lets go even just a little these two heat up. We get to see Jude and Claire and even some of the Assassins crew. It was funny seeing Phillip still have his reservations with Jude. I loved the Bellevue family and how they brought Baylor into the fold and made her their sister. How they stuck up for her and made her feel loved. Baylor and Jayden both want to get drafted into the NHL this year. They both will fight for what they want, on and off the ice. The only problem is will they both get what they want? Will their hearts survive?
