Wild Tendy (IceCats, #2) by Toni Aleo

Wild Tendy (IceCats, #2)

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...

  • 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  • 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...

    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.
  • 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...

    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...

    Oh Nico .....In this second installment of the Ice Cats series, we get to know Nico Merryweather (goalie and previous secondary character). As we get to know him, we discover he has a secret and it’s one that cast a brand new light of some of his previous behaviors. His love interest, Aviva, is a breast cancer survivor who lost her mom and is raising her teenage sister. I enjoyed getting to know these two characters (along with Aviva’s sister...
  • 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...
  • Jacie
    Honestly? I didn't love Nico after meeting him in previous books and I wasn't eager to get his book. But after reading his book.... Oh, man! I love Nico!Nico Merryweather is the goalie for the IceCats and Chandler Moon's best friend (We met Chandler in Juicy Rebound.) He's not only great at his job but a lady's man to boot. If you read the previous books (and you should- otherwise you're missing out!) you know that he hasn't had any luck with try...
  • 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...

    I ended the book and felt in awe. I was a little speechless. Toni blew me away with her powerful words and creative writing. She penned such a beautiful story to pull on the heartstrings and opening your eyes to the unexpected.You may have thought you know who the real Nico Merryweather is, with his love for woman and playboy ways, but you don’t know the half of it. This man is special and has so many layers that I couldn’t wait to see what h...
  • Stephanie
    Wild Tendy: Ice Cats series Nico and Aviva’s story is so real. For me this book may be one of my favourites because the women are strong, successful, hard working and above all else they are fighters, fighting for their health and fighting for their way in life! Nico’s story is going to possibly shock most readers but for me, I personally found it refreshing because as humans we all have barriers and triggers that prevent us from living our l...
  • 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...

    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 ...
  • 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...

    The depth of the emotions that Aleo brings out of the characters and reader takes this book to the next level. Nico has knocked Jude out of his top spot throne as my book boyfriend.Nico is the hot goalie who have women swarm to and he is happy to oblige their desires. Aviva feels life is out to get her and was born under the permanent unlucky sign. A meet cute of; oh you know rear ending the car in front of her leads to a relationship neither cou...

    Wild Tendy is the second book in the ice cats series. This is Nico Merryweathers book and he has quickly stolen my heart! Aviva Pearce is a strong independent heroine who doesn’t have time for dating and is busy raising her little sister. When their woulds crash... literally... Nico know he has met his match. I loved how hard Nico worked for Aviva’s affection, he never gave up. Nico was so different than he appeared in the previous book, in t...

    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...
  • Diane Carter
    Wow! Just WOW! Toni Aleo has totally rocked it with Nico’s book. All the feels - the laughter, tears and even the despair - I felt it all. This book has claimed the top spot as my favorite and Nico is on my wish list!Callie almost stole the show and I cant wait to read more about that firecracker!This is definitely a book you don’t want to miss.
  • Emily Utsch
    First off. That cover! Love it!Now onto the good stuff. Nico! Oh how he is the perfect H. We have met him in previous books, but this one show a whole new side to him. Don't worry. This book can be read as a stand alone. You just more out of the secondary characters. But no need to have read any of this authors previous books. Nico in the previous books (and alluded to here) seemed just like a fun hockey playing guy who loves the life style. Not ...
  • Colleen
    All I can say about “Wild TENDY”, is that it was so fabulously written and I hated when it ended. I read about Nico in “Juicy Rebound”, and I did not like him very much. I also felt bad for Nico because Shelli was using him for sex. In this book he so redeemed himself. I cried in the beginning of the book. It really touched my 💜 heart. I have not read a bad book from this author, and I hope Toni never stops writing. This was about Nico...
  • 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...
  • Rachael
    What a roller-coaster of emotions this story took me through. It was by far one of my favorite reads.Nico & Aviva are so awesome! Aviva is such a spitfire and Nico is such an amazingly sweet person with such drive that you can't help but cheer for them.I love how the author wrote such complex and riveting characters for this book. The story flowed very well and you were so hooked into the story from the start that there is no way you are putting ...

    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...

    This one really touched my heart as i worry about my kiddo down the road as he gets older. She knocked it out the park. I loved Nico. It was nice to see Nico's side of things after we briefly met and heard from him thru Chandler and Shelli's books. So i really enjoyed this! He never gave up and kept fighting to be better. Turns out he just needed Aviva in his life. ❤ Callie... that girl is hoot. I really really loved her spirit and drive to not...
