Wild Tendy by Toni Aleo

Wild Tendy

Nico Merryweather loves women—all women. Sure, they’re sexy and fun. But “Player” is an easy reputation to hide behind, a way to keep the good times rolling and reality at bay. He’s loud, he’s cocky, he says exactly what he’s thinking, and people just laugh it off because they think they know him. But Nico makes sure no one is close enough to know the truth. With a new season starting, he is ready to play the game he can control. Th...

Reviews Wild Tendy

  • Sabrina
    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKI have so much to say about this book but I'm going to try and keep this short since I think it's a story best read when you go in blind. Nico was honestly a character that I was really sure about, he's been around in the previous book and even in the Nashville Assassins: Next Generation series but he was hard to get a read on. He could act like a total ass but at the same time you could tell that there was more to h...

    Wild Tendy was the second book in Toni Aleo’s IceCats series. It focused on Nico Merriweather, a star NHL goalie.So, I can’t say too much in this review because in the introduction the author asked us not to reveal any spoilers so the the reader can watch the story develop. And I must say, she’s right. It was a better experience with a piece by piece reveal. This was a very unique perspective and I loved every moment of it. I totally unders...
  • BookAddict
    There are a lot of things I liked about this book. I applaud the author for tackling two difficult subject matters/health issues and doing them justice. She's created some winning characters with whom the reader easily connects and becomes invested in. Hockey romances are popular, and this is on par with others I’ve read, from the camaraderie between players and the bromance between Nick and Chandler to the action on the ice and the lifestyle o...
  • Marybeth
    Be still my heart. Nico is as vulnerable as he is cocky and he totally owned me from the get-go. This is an amazing story about some truly perfectly imperfect characters who have their own stories to tell. I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end, through every moment whether it be sweet, tender, difficult, funny or sexy. I went through the gamut of emotions I expect from Toni Aleo. She really knows how to give me everything I’m looki...
  • Chris
    Toni Aleo has outdone herself with this book! In my opinion, it is her best story yet! It brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my lips and I didn’t want to put it down. You will have no choice but to fall in love with Nico, Aviva and her sassy sister Callie. There is so much depth to these characters and they each have a story to share, but you will need to read this for yourself and I know you will enjoy every word as their story unfolds. A...

    Wild Tendy is book two in the IceCats series. Nico is a star goalie and Aviva is the owner of a local 90’s themed sandwich shop. After a rough day, Aviva accidentally runs into the back of Nico’s car. This begins Nico and Aviva’s friendship/beginning of their romantic relationship. I liked Aviva for the most part. She is very independent, does not like to accept help from others and is determined to rely on nobody but herself and her sister...

    5 star Review Wild Tendy (IceCats #2) by Toni AleoWow. I got this late last night and spent most of the early hours of this morning reading Wild Tendy as I simply could not put it down.If you are expecting this to be just another hockey story with a hot player who has the world at his feet and can and does anything he wants too, then you are in for a shock. This book has heart and soul with characters that will draw you in and is an outstanding s...
  • Diane Lynch
    Toni Aleo leads the league with WILD TENDY (IceCats #2). This is Nico Merryweather’s and Aviva Pearce’s story. Nico is Chandler Moon’s (JUICY REBOUND, IceCats #1) best friend. He dated Shelli Adler (DUMP AND CHASE, Nashville Assassins: Next Generation #1). Nico is an entertaining character. I was really looking forward to his story. WILD TENDY exceeded my expectations. This sports romance is suitable for adult readers. I liked Nico before r...
  • The Book Fairy Reviews
    This is Toni Aleo's best book yet! Not only is Nico, the swoon worthy Hockey Goalie hot, but he is smart, quirky, funny and sexy as all get out. The way he loves with his whole heart and soul adds more to his looks than anything else. He is honest and tells you exactly what he is thinking. A quality that will melt every and any heart that meets him(or reads this book!)Aviva is a woman that can be looked up to. A woman that has taken on the role o...

    ***this and other reviews can be found at http://www.imasweetandsassybookwhore.com ****ARC*I have wanted Nico's book since we were first introduced to his character. There was just something about the quirky, over the top, goalie. I fell more in love with Nico in this book.It kills me that I didn't end up loving this book because I tried, I truly tried but I just hated Aviva. I couldn't get passed certain things about her and didn't think she rea...
  • Elizabeth Clinton
    Wild Tendy is Book Two In Toni Aleo’s Ice Cats Series and all I Can Say is that Nico Merryweather has most certainly has stolen a piece of my heart. Nico is an outstanding goalie with an outstanding ego, but when he meets Aviva Pearce in the most unlikely of circumstances you can’t help know he has met his match. Aviva Pearce is a strong minded woman who not only takes care of her incredible sister Callie but runs her own business without the...

    How do you write a review for a book that has left you completely speechless. I am literally sitting here with tears in my eyes and a huge smile on my face...Wild Tendy may be Ms. Aleo's best book to date. The writing is superb and the story... well she has taken the romance genre and flipped it on its ear. Wild Tendy is so very unique and utterly beautiful. Not only has Ms. Aleo written a beautiful and unique romance she has written a story full...

    I mean, I get where she is coming from but Aviva is so damn dramatic
  • ✰ BJ's Book Blog ✰Janeane ✰
    ARC received for an honest reviewWow! Just Wow! I didn't think any of Toni Aleo's men could make me love them more than I love those Assassin boys, but Nico Merryweather just blew them out of the water in Wild Tendy.He is a wonderful combination of cocky and arrogant, mixed with a vulnerability that makes you fall for him, and fall hard.I loved the Nico and the lovely Aviva aren't perfect. We read all these stories where the hockey hottie has eve...
  • Darcy
    When I saw that this book was about Nico I wasn't excited, I didn't like how he was with Shelli in the last book. Seeing the cover didn't help. There is something about the guy that comes off as creepy/smarmy to me, I think it's the smile. So very reluctantly I started reading this book, so color me surprised that I ended up really liking this one.Aviva definitely had a chip on her shoulder, but I felt like she deserved it. It seemed like if it w...
  • Ga Books LoverX
    Wow! This book was so freaking good, I have read enough of Toni Aleo's books to know that I am a huge fan, but she freaking out did her self with Wild Tendy and Nico Merryweather! Nico is amazing, who knew that so much was hidden under the surface. NO SPOILERS but this man is AMAZING and deserves all of the best!Aviva Pearce basically gets the short end of the stick every freaking time. She is not used to good things happening to her and when som...
  • Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
    Ahhh Nico. Love when an author gives us a veritable bad boy and makes our hearts melty and gooey for him. Nico is not only a player with the ladies, he has been pretty vocal about being jilted in the past. Really an a$$ about it. Forget all of that about him. When you get to know the man behind the mask the world sees, you will fall in love with him. I LOVED Aviva for him! She was awesome. I loved that her sister was trying to play matchmaker. I ...
  • Chappy
    Nico pulled at my heart-strings right away, him being French-Canadian and all. Even his "secret" diagnosis made me love him even more.Aviva is one strong chick and I respect that. Her drive never diminished even under insurmountable odds.Their banter is hilarious and Nico made me giggle with his blunt and a little arrogant comments. This was a new to me author and I'm so impressed that I'm thinking of starting the Assassins series from the beginn...
  • Anne Milne
    Nico was a huge surprise that I never saw coming . The characterisation for Nico is absolutely phenomenal. When Aviva and Cassie come into Nico's life it is going to change everything. The friendship and bond that Nico and Cassie form was one of my favourite aspects of the book. The angle that the author took for Nico was unique, unexpected and written with such depth and knowledge. The whole story flowed beautifully and kept me invested from beg...
  • Jackie Ziegler
    Wow another amazing read. This story had it all and more I didn't want it to end.. Fingers crossed we see more of Nico, Aviva and Callie!Nico meets Aviva when she rear ends him at a stop light. Something about her has him intrigued and he has never felt this way before.. Aviva has no clue who he is, yes she knows he is hot but other than that clueless. This is an incredible journey to follow.. So much to say but you need to read it!
  • Cheryl Norris
    Oh my word. I didn't think I would love Nico as much as I do. His game is strong in this book. His character has evolved and grown in this book when compared to the last one. I love how strong Aviva is, and Callie, her little sister is fantastic. I hope one day we get to see her in a Bellevue Bullies book.The chemistry between all the characters is off the charts and I loved that the Chandler/Nico bromance continued in this story.
  • Lynn
    A very unique hockey romance that just makes me love Toni Aleo more. Every story she writes only adds more characters that I love and I get to catch up with old friends. Nico was introduced in Shelli and Brooks story and didn't make the best impression. Aviva wasn't expecting Nico when she hit his car, but he is exactly who she needs in her and her sister's life. A love story no one expects, but we all needed.
  • Bee
    Toni Aleo is my go to sports romance author. If you can't tell by the fact that it gets its own bookshelf, hockey romances are my favorite. It could be because I love the sport on its own, but it just tends to be way better than any other sport (soccer romance is a close second).I love how different each story she writes is. This one dealt with unique issues. Both characters really struggled with a personal "problem" and the book shows how their ...
  • Mindy
    Wild Tendy totally blew me away. Nico is playboy that sleeps with a different woman every night. At least that what everyone thinks. What they don't know is that Nico has a secret that he has kept from those around him, even his best friend Chandler. If anyone found out, they would think he was a freak or a weirdo. He knows something is missing from his life especially when he sees Chandler and the little family that he has created with Amelia. H...
  • Cindy
    I like all of Toni Aleo's hockey novels - she knows the sport and loves the men who play it. But this novel is special. I liked the first of the IceCats series - Juicy Rebound - it was fun. But this story was so much more.Wild Tendy is features Nico Merryweather, the Vezina trophy-winning goalie of the Carolina IceCats. He's the best friend of Chandler Moon and was interested in Shelli Adler before she returned to Aiden Brooks. Nico meets Aviva b...
  • Stacie R.
    Nico Merryweather likes women, there’s no doubt about that. However, he doesn’t like most women for more than one night, he can keep himself hidden that way. He’s in your face loud and cocky, and he likes it that way. People think they know him, but they have no idea. He’s never let anybody get too close to him for fear they find out what he’s hiding, that is until Aviva crashes into his life. Aviva can’t seem to win. She owns a sub s...
  • Linda Dunn
    Persistent Tender...Nico Merryweather captured my heart. When you first meet him you think he is an arrogant hockey player that thrives on women throwing themselves at him. While he does love the ladies and all the hot times he has with them, like the hockey mask he wears as a goalie, it hides what is really happening to him emotionally. He never lets himself believe he could find what his best friend Chandler has, an amazing wife and children. T...
  • Christine
    You may think you have an idea of who Nico Merryweather is...….but you will be in for quite the surprise when you read Wild Tendy! He was nothing like what I expected after meeting him in previous stories - but after truly getting to know the man behind the mask, oh boy do I just adore this man. He just is one of those special characters that you will never forget. And Aviva - what a strong, independent, selfless woman. I am just in awe of her ...
  • Millennial Life Crisis Bookshelf - Samantha
    Never saw Nico’s story coming but I’m obsessed! Nico has lived his life focused on his outlet of hockey after keeping a big secret from everyone, and he exhibits some quirks that only add to his character. Aviva has had a rough time since the death of her mother years ago. It seems that punch after punch happens in her life that go wrong and she can never catch up. When she crashes her car into Nico’s, he is enthralled while she is mortifie...
  • Heather
    I thought I loved the first book in the IceCats series, but Wild Tendy has definitely risen to the top spot. Nico Merryweather may be my favorite Toni Aleo hero ever. I fell so hard for him!Nico is the star goalie for the IceCats and it's no secret that he loves women. He's one of those guys that tells you exactly what he's thinking and he's got a giant ego, as one might expect. Oh and his bromance with Chandler is still awesome. When he meets Av...
