Rushing the Goal {Book Review}

Title: Rushing the Goal
Series: The Assassins Series
Author: Toni Aleo 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

Introduced in Toni Aleo’s Bellevue Bullies Series, it’s the Sinclair brothers’ big sister’s turn to find love in the next installment of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling series, the Assassins.
Lucy Sinclair was no stranger to pain.
She grew up with three younger brothers, met a bad boy, got pregnant by him, married him, and then suffered through a nasty divorce from him. Pain. That was pain. To top it off, she even had to go through the heartbreaking divorce of her parents. Through it all, she survived. All she cared about was making sure her daughter was happy and taken care of. Despite an ex-husband hell-bent on ruining her life, she fought to overcome. She’s gotten to the point that she’s okay with being just okay. She never cared about herself because she never had the time. It was Angie and only Angie she focused on, but that all changed when Benji Paxton offered to help her daughter on the ice.

Benji knew the moment he saw Lucy, he’d never be the same. Especially when she came with the bundle of crazy that was her daughter. His heart wasn’t ready for them. After years spent sobering up and finding who he was without the alcohol, he never forgot he was being punished for not appreciating the love he had when he was younger. Because of his past, he had gotten used to being alone, a recluse, but even he had to admit it was getting old. He was lonely. Hockey wasn’t enough anymore. He wanted a family; he wanted his true love, and Lucy and Angie were just that.
Benji and Lucy were just two lost souls.
Floating through life with no purpose.
But finding each other gave them direction, a chance at a future.
And that had them both Rushing the Goal to be together.

My Review:
     Oh the feels for this book. I was super excited that I was going to get to review this book. I was super excited that these two character's, Benji and Lucy were going to get their own book. I seriously couldn't wait to dive into it.
     I'm going to start with Benji. Oh Benji, Benji, Benji I just loved and adored Benji. I was so happy when I saw that Benji was going to get his own book. I have loved him since first meeting him. But he had such a heart breaking back story, so I was so happy to see that he was finally going to get his own happy ending. He is such that weird kind of awkward that was funny, but at the same time was such a sweetheart. He had such demons sitting on his shoulders that weren't even his fault. My heart couldn't help but break all over again for him.
      I liked Lucy. I think I have liked Lucy ever since meeting her in Jude's book. Though I will admit she does take some warming up to. Even in this book it took me awhile to warm up to her. I mean I get where her walls came from and where she was coming from. I liked that we get to know her better and watch those walls she has built up, broken down.
    As I said I was super excited that I got the chance to review this book. I loved being able to watch both of Benji and Lucy's walls come down and them both falling in love again. I will admit there was a point I was a little worried in this book (can't really put my finger on it), but luckily it went away fast. I will say that I laughed (I mean how can you not with the Sinclair antics), I cried, My heart broke all over again for these character's. But in the end it was great to see two character's who needed to find love the most, find it.  And there definitely some moments I didn't see coming.
     I'm giving this book 4.5 Stars Out of 5!!!!!!
