Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Toni Aleo comes a spin-off series from the Assassins: the Bellevue Bullies!

Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey's in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I'm good at it...really good. The draft is within my reach - it's mine to take - but that's not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words I don't do relationships beyond my family and friends. I'm happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.

She's beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking. She's my game changer.

He's trouble from the moment I see him. I don't know what I'm thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I'm his. It's a scary feeling. I've never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle - and even that took months. I didn't have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn't give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I'm stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don't want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.

Oh, by the way, I'm Claire Anderson. I'm a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that's my secret. You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It's not easy falling in love...or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight? Especially when you're boarded by love.

Too long

Had to hurry up the narration. I liked the characters and the plot, but holey moly it could have been 3 or 4 hours shorter. Should have been. I hesitate to get any more in this series because of the length. One of them is 18 hours long! This author has a lot going for her, but she needs a decent editor to guide her and help her hone her craft. At the very least she should read her works outloud - she'll see not only the plodding pace of the internal stuggles she zones in on (well, I might add), but repetitive words and phrasing.

Couldn't even finish listening

What disappointed you about Boarded by Love?

There's no way that a college hockey team would be called the "bullies." The story wasn't believable at all.

Has Boarded by Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just this author

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was OK. If a little stilted at places, transitioning between characters.

Any additional comments?

I tried reading the book and decided to try giving it a listen and that was worse because I was trapped having to listen to the entire painful story instead of skimming over the unbelievable, over-used college student interaction.

1 book for 1.5 mont.

What would have made Boarded by Love better?

Any additional comments?

The story overall was not bad. But it took one book for 1 1/2 month. All the secret just keep going and going and going. The performance in the audio was good. Really all the drama took 1-2 chapters at the end. I recommend it to maybe young audience.

Feel Good Story

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed listening to this book and thought that the problems that come up are relatable to everyday people. There are outcomes that I feel are a little out there but makes you love the characters even more. Easy listen.

True Love Conquers All

I haven't written a review in awhile and this book was so good I felt the urge to write about it. I love the story between Jude and Claire, I was so glad to read about the playboy that Jude was, didn't cause him to cheat on Claire, especially with all the girls constantly swooning over him. It was so awesome to see how much they loved each other right from the very start. I just knew it was going to catch up with Claire,the secret she held would eventually come out before you know it, but Jude didn't have to be so mean and headstrong about it. I don't want to say anymore because I don't want to give the best part of the story up, but this book is a must read if you love reading about hockey stars and true love.

LOVED IT FROM START TO FINISH

This is my first book by Toni and OMG, I loved it from start to finish. It was amazing. I cried on numerous occasions and laughed out loud on many more. This book was a combination of everything you could want in a romance novel.

The narrators were on point!

I would recommend over and over again!

Good story, but some annoying style elements

I had this book as a kindle e-book and *loved* it. Got it as an audiobook to listen to while doing chores (folding laundry) or riding a bike; something that doesn't require a lot of focus. And found that the story has some seriously annoying style elements.
Look, I get it that they are in lust and in love with each other and want to express that, but the amount of time spent on vocalizing this is way too much. I get. She is it for you. He is the best. *rolls eyes*
Never knew that the word 'amazing' was being overused in this book, until I heard it for the gazillionth time in the audiobook. Checked the kindle version: no less than a whopping 100 (!) times does this word come up, presumably 95 of those being in something that Jude says.
His alpha maleness got on my nerves after a while; there is very little reflection on his part about the way he treated girls/women in the past, apart from some kind of weird apology in a Facebook post of his hand.
Claire seems to have many more layers/much more depth in her character, with regard to doubts, motivation, choices.
All in all this is still a good book, but the audio version made me realize some part of the story - at least the part where Claire doubts whether she should tell Jude about her work - goes on waaaaaaay tooooo looooong.
