Elli Fisher has never thought she was good enough. Let it be her job, her weight, her love life, nothing, she was convinced she couldn’t do anything right. She had walked through life for the past six years in a daze, never thinking that life could be good again after the abuse she endured from her ex boyfriend. She is lonely, sad, and depressed, that is until she meets Shea Adler. After doing a promotional shoot for the NHL team, the Nashville Assassins, she meets the hunky hockey player who shoots a puck, shattering her world.
Shea Adler was tired of the life he was living outside of the rink. The girls, the money blowing, the drinking, everything had to stop and it all did when he met Eleanor Fisher. He had never met anyone like her. She is feisty, witty, shy, and simply gorgeous. When he laid eyes on her, it was as if he was taking the hardest hit of his life into the boards, and he had to have her.
Elli is a little skeptical of Shea, but he knows that they were meant to be together, and he needed her in his life. But Elli just doesn’t understand what Shea could see in her. She is overweight, loud, and not even that pretty, so why would someone so gorgeous and so amazing want to be with her? It seemed that no matter how hard she tried to shake Shea off, he wasn’t going anywhere, and for the first time Elli didn’t feel alone.
But could Elli throw her insecurities out the window and love Shea with everything inside of her? Or will she let a past relationship, and her family ruin any chance of her being happy?
Would Elli miss her shot at love?

My name is Toni Aleo!
I am twenty eight years old, and married with two children. I live outside of Nashville TN, in the city called Clarksville. I have been writing since I was in high school, but never thought to publish anything until now! It took me seven months to write Taking Shots, when I was almost done; I posted it to Booksie.com and had an amazing response. Everyone loved it, and I have gotten so many comments on how real the characters are, and how every big event in the book had made people feel like they are in the book with the main characters. Which was what I wanted, I wanted people to read my book and feel for Shea and Elli, root for them when things didn't look like they would work out. I am absolutely in love with my novel, and I hope you love it too! I just finished the second in the Assassins series called Trying to Score. Thank you so much!
