Misadventures of a Rookie (Misadventures, #11)

***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson.

    3.5 starsThis is my first Misadventures book. I have seen them floating around for a while now, and when I saw Toni Aleo was writing one AND it was a hockey book, I decided to give it a go. Toni writes the best hockey stories! Gus ‘the Bus’ P is just got drafted to play for NHL team, The Tornadoes. Temporarily he’s playing for the Suns, a lower level team and that’s where he meets Bo, a PT student. There is a thin line between love and ha...

    3.5 stars.This book started off a little rough for me. Mainly because Gus Persson- the rookie hockey player and star of this book appeared to be way too much of a cocky, arrogant, insensitive manwhore for me to ever really like him. Boy was I glad that I just kept reading it anyway- as not only did Gus do a total 180 degrees in my eyes but I think I ended up liking him even more than the "fiery" Bo.This book was my first ever read by Toni Aleo an...

    4.5 Stars!This book really surprised me. In the beginning, I actually thought this was going to be my first book of Toni Aleo's that I wasn't going to like. I've loved everything I have read by her to date, but I learned real quick that the Hero in this book was the exact type that I do not enjoy in my books. He's arrogant. He's a player. He thinks he's God's gifts to women and hockey and I was just as disgusted by it as our heroine was. If you s...

    Favorite Quotes:The way she looked at me, like I stole her doll and drew dicks on its mouth, revved my engines.It had been a long time since I yearned for a woman, probably because they usually threw themselves at me. I was pretty sure the only thing redhead wanted to throw at me was a puck.I would never intentionally hurt you. And besides, my mom would kill me if I did.She scoffed. “Please, the only thing I thought that man was put on this ear...

    This Book is amazing! As an avid Toni reader I appreciate all of her work but this book made me go through a variety of emotions and I found myself smiling and laughing out loud at most of the story. Let me start by saying, the hero in this book is fantastic! It appears as though he gets everything handed to him on a silver platter but his work ethic and drive showcase the kind of man he is. This is a story about the thin line between love and ha...

    *I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**The Misadventures Series has been a lot of fun with so many different and engaging books and Toni Aleo has added a clear winner to the stable!Gus Persson has always dreamed of playing in the NHL. He was drafted by the Twin Cities Tornadoes, but the brass determined he wasn't quite ready, so he's out in California with their AHL affiliate. While he's known for beddin...

    Hockey & Toni Aleo go hand in hand. Misadventures with a Rookie is an absolutely fantastic Read right from the very first page. We meet Gus “the bus” Persson a cocky as all hell up and coming Hockey player just waiting for his chance to play in the NHL. While he waits he plays hard not only on the ice but also off the ice. That is until he meets Bo St. James. Bo St. James is a hard working student trying to get her degree, working and moving ...

    I think this was the fastest I have ever read a book. When I say I couldn’t put it down usually that means I did put it down to eat dinner, let the dogs out, whatever. I had Misadventures with a Rookie in my hands from the time I picked it up until I finished. I even ate my lunch while reading. I need to know who Toni Aleo is. I need to read more..I am flabbergasted, enthralled, amazed. Rookie is EVERYTHING. I am so impressed I am having troubl...

    **Received an ARC in return for an honest review**So reading the title, to me was a little misleading. Frankly I think it should have been titled something else in the form of a hilarious name due to a certain hilarious scene in the book . PS. Unicorn Spit is allllll the rage! *wink* Anyways, Two characters, Bo and Gus. They have a weird way to start a relationship, but really don't some of the best loves happen that way? Toni's ability to combin...

    **I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. **Toni Aleo’s books never cease to amaze me! Misadventures of a Rookie had me hooked from start to finish! Gus “The Bus” Persson was drafted by the NHL’s Twin Cities Tornados, but first has to spend some time playing on their AHL team the Malibu Suns. This is where he meets the fiery ice girl, Bo St. James. Burned by a past relationship, Bo wants absolutely nothing to do with Gus. All ...

    What a great book... This was a funny read. I thought the chase would last all through the book, but of course I should’ve known Ms. Aleo would tease us with these “too hot for each other “ characters. Wow, to say I’m loving the name Bocephus for the heroine was too funny. Bo, for short, was one of the Ice Girls for the AHL Malibu Suns in California. She was working part-time and interning for the team to become a physical therapist. Bo c...

    I love this book, the writing the story the characters it all came together perfectly. I’ve read a lot of sports books and going in I thought I knew what I was going to read but I was so wrong and especially about Gus. Gus is the ‘rookie’ in the story, he’s the next hotshot ice hockey player he’s successful on and off the ice then he meets Bo and everything changes. I’m calling dibs on Gus and his parents their relationship is everyt...

    I received an ARC for an honest review.1.“He must be special.” I quirked my lips a little.“He’s a pain in my ass.” When she laughed quietly, I looked up and she smiled.“The best love is.” Well, we all know this is true. Bo and Gus have a relationship I would consider truly honest. I mean really… if they didn’t love each other they wouldn’t argue. Right? Or something or other. They have fireworks for sure. Love isn’t always s...

    Honest review headed your way!!! I have read damn near everything Toni has put out and Misadventures of a Rookie jumped to my top 5! I love the dynamic between Gus and Bo. Their witty banter had me rolling the whole time. The standard these two had for a typical date was enough to leave me in stitches! (pun intended)Bo is a strong, determined, stubborn woman. (P.s you are going to love her full name! lol) Gus is a cocky, arrogant, hilarious sweet...

    OMG!!!!! Toni Aleo sure does know how to make a hockey player all kinds of goodness. She does not disappoint. Ashley @ White Hot ReadsI read this book in one evening because I couldn’t put this book down. This story is about a Hockey Rookie in the farm team who has eyes for the ice girl who has secrets and isn’t wanting to get involved with anyone. This book made me laugh, brought on the tears and the steamy hot sex made me fan myself. Again ...

    This was my first Toni Aleo book but it won't be my hockey romance loving heart's last! It took me a while to get in to it - Bo was just so aggressively anti Gus for no apparent reason and Gus was such an unapologetic manwhore that I just couldn't. But then there was a shift and I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN. They were both so much more than meets the eye and even though I was able to figure out the big secret (as usual but it wasn't really that ...

    First off let me say that I don't normally read sports romance. I do enjoy watching hockey but have never thought about reading sports anything. I'm so glad I read this book!!!! It was amazing! Toni Aleo weaves a fantastic story with two characters voices and point of views clearly represented that flow effortlessly throughout the book. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a very long time. I laughed out loud and just felt so many emotions readi...

    ***I was provided with an ARC for an honest review***When I read the first few pages of this book, I wasn’t quite sure that I was going to love Gus like I love all of the Assassins men, but throughout the entire book Toni provided an in-depth look at the man beneath the surface and Gus the Bus ranks right up there under Jordie Thomas for me (no one will ever beat Jordie!). That’s what Toni does though, she takes you on this journey, the highs...

    I will be honest with you I am a fan of this author and generally love her books and really love hockey stories so I was prepared for a good story. Immediately I was drawn into amazing characters and some hockey players who were having so much fun playing hockey and talking about the ice girls in between their shifts on the ice!Gus and Bo (you have to get this book to learn more about her name! It is one of the best parts of the book, especially ...

    Misadventures With A Rookie is another triumph for Toni Aleo! It’s got points of laughter, tears, romance, and it brings the heat along the way! Gus and Bo are two relatable characters who lead us through a story of the good and bad in life and relationships. It is a great read and you probably won’t be able to put it down once you start. Ms. Aleo has once again reminded me remember everyone has their own story to tell.

    Review by Trinette DungeeGus Persson has never had to work hard for anything in his life, especially for the attention from a woman; but when it comes to Bo St. James that’s exactly what he has to do. This woman hates him and he can’t imagine why, they don’t know each other at all they’ve never even spoken. The more she ignores him the more he’s determined to win her over. Bo St. James has had her fill of men like Gus Persson, rich boys...

    Addicted and I need more!! *spoilers*I’ve read almost every book from Toni Aleo and I have to say that this one is up there with the best. Bo and Gus are two of the best made characters that she has brought to us. They were easy to relate to and very human. That’s a big reason I love reading her books so much. It’s not about having all the money in the world and living big. They all have these beautiful, sometimes heart-wrenching, backstori...

    Misadventures with a Rookie by Toni Aleo is book 11 in the Misadventures series. This is the story of Gus “the Bus” Persson and Bo St. James. This is easily a standalone book Gus is a rookie but did just get drafted with a NHL team called The Tornadoes but is temporarily on the Malibu Suns team...and this is where Gus meets Bo. Bo is studying to be a sports therapist and as part of a internship she is working as a Ice Girl on the Malibu Suns ...

    4 1/2 starsGus "the Bus" Persson is a unique hockey defenseman who can score like it was a forward on his AHL team. Women flock to Gus to take a ride on the bus constantly, no women has ever said no. Bo St. James is an ice girl who just wants to be left alone by everyone to focus on school. Gus sees Bo has a challenge and will not stop until she is his. As Gus and Bo get closer, they start to see the real person behind the facade, will they be wi...
