It all began in high school. It all ended there too.
One day was all it took for both my life and Dane's to fall apart. But from the ashes we were reborn. We became The Hysterics.
There was no way we would have known what a roller coaster we were embarking on.
It was a hysteric ride, but we wouldn’t have changed a thing.

I am Maverick Steele & it’s my turn...
As the bassist in The Hysterics I've learned that the road to fame is long. It twists and throws some crazy curve balls, but it’s always been worth it.
I had never regretted being a musician. Never questioned touring or the loneliness that came with it.
Until Cali. Until I had to make a choice and I chose wrong.
Because being a rock star and settling down don’t go hand in hand. Or at least that’s what I thought.

Cross Drop (On the Edge Series book 2) by Elizabeth Hartey

Title: Cross Drop
Series: On the Edge
Author: Elizabeth Hartey
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 19, 2018 

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Nikki

I’m not a saint. Never claimed to be. I’ve played the game and scored my fair share—both on and off the field. This is why I should have known better than to fall for a hockey player. But I did. I fell fast and hard. 

Now I’m left with the painful consequences, reminded every day of how reckless I had been by giving him my heart so easily—so willingly. Dalt broke me in the cruelest of ways, and because of him, I’ll never be able to love again.

Dalt

Nikki changed me. She made me want to be a better man. My days playing off the ice were over because she owned every little piece of my heart…until she left, leaving behind a gnawing ache where my heart used to be.

Now she’s back, and it’s painfully clear she hates me, ignoring me, pretending like I’m nobody to her. But that’s just too damn bad. I want answers. I want a goddamn explanation.

And most of all…I want her.











As a lover of the northeast US, Elizabeth moved with her husband to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, she has finally found time to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing novels. The wild ride of writing books is one of the most difficult things she’s ever done in her life. But the opportunity to get her stories out of her head and down on paper and send them out into the world is also one of the most wonderful things she’s ever done. A dreamer at heart, romance is the genre she spends most of her time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. And having readers fall in love with her characters as much as she does is almost as exciting as giving birth (just not as painful!) When not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home, swimming, knitting, watching old classic movies and traveling.

Cross Drop (On the Edge Series book 2) by Elizabeth Hartey Review

Cross Drop (On the Edge Series book 2)Cross Drop by Elizabeth Hartey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Elizabeth Hartey scores with CROSS DROP, the second book in the On the Edge Series. College hockey star, Dalton Walker, has loved one girl, Nikki Dixon. He has no idea why she suddenly hates him and left the school. Now two years later, she is back, and he is determined to figure out what happened. This contemporary sport romance primarily takes place at Bernard University in Maine.

After reading book one, CROSS STROKE, I was anxiously awaiting Dalt and Nikki’s story. They obviously had history; I had no idea how much. CROSS DROP is an excellent example of miscommunications and deception. Nikki thinks Dalt broke up with her. Dalt has no idea why Niki left him and disappeared from school. The two were clearly in love with each other. The things that transpired, and the lost time was unfortunate.

I enjoyed the characters. Dalt and Nikki are an adorable couple. What happened between them was horrible. Nikki should have been more trusting of Dalt, but it is understandable why she reacted the way she did. I’m glad she confided in Tracy, who brought a different perspective in the mix. They are a compatible couple. Dalt and Nikki are both hard working. They are excellent athletes. Nikki is captain of the soccer team, and Dalt is expected to be drafted. They were comfortable around one another. They were each other soul mates. They need to work on some issues to trust again; which is easier said than done, with a major secret that was kept. I like that they own up to their mistakes. Dalt is very thoughtful; I love where he takes Nikki on their date. I felt horrible about some of the things that happened with his family.

Elizabeth Hartey does an exceptional job with her writing and plot. I like how the story started out in the past and then fast forwarded to overlap with book one. A number of unexpected things occur throughout the novel. The story flowed well and was easy to read. Be warned it is a hard book to put down. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Kindle Edition, 303 pages
Expected publication: June 19th 2018
Original Title: Cross Drop
ISBN: 139781640343788

She is starting her college career as a star member of Bellevue’s brand-new gymnastics team.

About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

The moon had crested to its zenith. It hung suspended in the sky, closer to dawn than midnight, when Antara opened her eyes. Myth and magic greeted her sleepy gaze through the gap in the floor length curtain drawn to one side.  Ross was out on the balcony, with his hands curled over the railing. His wings were free, bathed in a moon river that painted him silver. Only the tips of his feathers stirred. Rippling like liquid metal under the caress of a subtle pre-dawn breeze.
Her breath caught and stalled in her lungs. It wasn't so much the sculpted perfection of his physique that did it. Rather, it was the ethereal reminder that the man out there was anything but human. In his rightful form, in an unguarded moment like this where even the moon couldn't resist touching him, she understood why there were those that had worshipped him as a god.
He must have felt her eyes on him, for he turned and caught her in the blue glow of his gaze. Her blood warmed. Her skin flushed and, for a moment, her mind filled with at least half a dozen erotic things she wanted him to do to her. Then he held out his hand to her.
“Come fly with me.”
Beneath the layers of hedonistic indulgence smoking through his voice, lay a deeper note of gravity that intrigued her.
Naked, she slid out from under the light covering of the sheet, stood, and reached for her robe.
He shook his head. “No. Just as you are.”
She let the silk garment fall to the floor and stepped out onto the balcony wearing only a shy smile. She took his hand. Warm, capable, and elegant fingers laced through hers.
“What if someone sees us?” she whispered.
He smiled, drew her in closer against the hard wall of his body and curled his wings about her. She shivered beneath the sensual brush of feathered tips over her ass and the backs of her thighs.
“Then they will know that you are mine.”
He let go of her hand and wrapped his arms around her. She circled hers about his neck and stared up into his eyes, drifting away in the endless ocean of exquisite blue. The weapon, Hermes, Diana, Apollo, the war they had spoken of… everything melted away until there was only the two of them.
Warmed by his feathered embrace, she became aware of the air cooling her extremities—feet, forearms, and fingers, laced at the nape of his neck. Antara looked down and gasped. No longer were they on the solid balcony running the length of the windowed wall, the penthouse lay far below. Instinctively, she tightened her grip.
“How…?” She looked back up at him to find his gaze hadn’t left her. “Your wings aren’t moving,” she whispered in awe.
“I let go and trust the universe to catch me,” he replied, with the mysteries of antiquity shading his voice.
He held her there for a while, hovered high in the air. Below them, the slumbering neighbourhood spread out a glittering quilt of street lamps and traffic lights. She felt the moment he decided upon movement. It was there in the sudden release of power that surged through the thick slabs of muscle coating his chest, shoulders, and back. His wings unfurled from around her, stretched to their fullest extension, and then swept through the air.
Antara bit her lip and screwed her eyes shut. He laughed. Deep and melodious. The sound of a thousand summer nights spiced with cinnamon, kissed with myrrh and cooled with rain. Forcing her eyes open again, the expression on his face was joy in its purest form. It shone from his pores and lit up his eyes, stretched his grin wide and…melted her insides.
“You love it, don’t you?” she whispered, soaking in the sight of him revelling in the freedom of flight.
His head turned, and his mouth found the side of her neck. Hot breath fanned her skin when he replied, “Flying is best with love in my arms.”
