Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other…or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love? 

Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she’s most passionate about. She’s a fighter, a survivor, and has everything she’s ever wanted but the one thing that matters most—love. 

Karson is doing the one thing he loves most—playing hockey for the Assassins, yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago—Lacey. 

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future? 

Can two people with fate on their side find a way back to each other? Overcome all the obstacles in their way to finally live life together to the fullest? 

Or will they let those around them and the circumstances they face, along with questions and doubt, ruin a second chance at the life they both deserve? 

Laces and Lace includes the prequel Tangled in the Laces, a dollar of your purchase will be donated to the Nashville Predators Foundation.


my thoughts

I’ve been wanting to read more about Karson and Lacey’s story ever since I finished Tangled In The Laces when it first came out in the Seduced by the Game Anthology! There was just something about those two characters that really got to me. They stuck with me for so long, I was counting down the days to the continuation of their love story.

LACES AND LACE blew me away! It had so much heart, so much soul, that I just sat in the dark once I was finished and just pondered more and more about it. This story will speak to you. This story will move you. And this story will absolutely warm your insides. A story of pain, regret, and sacrifice turns into a gut-wrenching story about a love so strong and so deep that no matter what happens, these two people will always find their way back to one another. It’s fate! Simple as that! I just LOVE a good story where FATE just kicks these character’s asses in gear!

Lacey has overcome SO MUCH already. She may have won the battle, but she has yet to win the war. She is present, but she is living a life of emptiness and sorrow. When the cause of the pain comes pushing his way back into her life, she is elated and ecstatic, but with the help of her family, the doubts she feels surface and grow stronger every day. As they say, LOVE OVERCOMES ALL, but if Lacey’s family has anything to do with it, both her and Karson have a battle of epic proportions to win.

I fell in LOVE with absolutely everything about this book! Toni Aleo puts so much passion, heart, and depth into her stories, and you can’t help but to fall in love with her alluring words and her beautiful characters.

An epic love story I will never forget ♥ Lacey and Karson FOREVER!



About Toni Aleo

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?
