NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BEST SELLING AUTHOR TONI ALEO PRESENTS THE NEXT INSTALLMENT IN THE ASSASSINS SERIES...

 

LACES AND LACE

 

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.

PRAISE FOR LACES AND LACE....

 

"I feel that Laces & Lace was one of the best books in the series, not only because it revolved around heavy matter, but also because it drug you through emotional turmoil and struggles and it wasn’t happy go lucky easy." ~ Amazon Reviewer: Kris

 

"Laces and Lace is a story of survival, bravery, and endearing love. A story of when two people collide and life without the other is miserable. After I read the prequel to Laces and Lace I was dying to read the full novel. This story touched my heart and I urge you to go get your copy!" ~ Brittany @ Spare Time Book Blog

 

"This is such a great read, with more steam than most of Toni's books! And so many laugh out loud moments, seriously - JT needs his own book, and it needs to be amazingly hilarious because I couldn't stop laughing! Overall? Laces and Lace was well worth the wait!!" ~ For Love and Books "Jac"

MIA

I have been MIA for quite some time.   Who has been occupying all my time?  Well that would be this handsome little man: 

This little guy was born August 13, 2012.  He has brought more joy and happiness into my life than I ever knew was possible.  Watching him with his brother never ceases to amaze me.  

You could spend hours getting lost in these blue eyes! I am truly truly blessed.  

In order to have this bundle of joy I had my band deflated.  Towards the end of my pregnancy I found out that my lap-band surgeon had left his practice and they were no longer doing maintenance.  

So, I have slacked on finding a new surgeon.  Now, I am BIGGER than I have ever been. I mean majorly big! I went to meet my new surgeon today and am determined to get back on track.  I have a long way to go, but 2 beautiful boys to get me there!

60 lbs!!!

I did it!!! I am 60 lbs lighter!!! I feel amazing!!! I still have a long way to go, but I am so proud of myself! I also won the competition at the YMCA.  They are so wonderful and have been a big help.  I am going Thursday for another band fill, so its back on liquids for 2 days! EEK! I have been doing a little baking, but haven't gotten the skinny part down yet! I did make snickerdoodle cupcakes that were to die for! I topped them with a cinnamon buttercream frosting! The little guy told me to forget Girl Scout cookies he wanted these! He has also already requested them for his birthday in September.  He is posted below enjoying the cupcake! I will be baking "skinny" soon so stay tuned!!!

I am officially 10.2 lbs lighter! Not bad for a weeks worth of work.  Liver shrinking diet has been going well so far.  Met with the surgeon Friday and everything is set.  My lapband surgery is Monday.  I am moving Saturday, so wish me luck.  After I get settled in from the move, I will be starting to bake again! Can't wait hubby got me a Kitchenaid for Christmas!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

2010 is behind us now.  Time to move on to a new year.  Hello 2011!!! I spent New Year's with my husband and had a nice time.  I hope you all had a good one! NEWS: I have my surgery date! I am scheduled to get my LAPBAND on January 17th! YAY! Yesterday, I decided to start the liver shrinking diet to see how I could handle it.  Well, first day didn't go soo great.  I got protein powder called "Nectar" the flavor was fuzzy navel.  I was able to stomach the first shake, but it was making my stomach hurt.  So, I decided to wait and try another shake.  Today, I tried "Atkins Rich Chocolate Royale" I was once again able to stomach the first shake.  But, when I tried it again for lunch I couldn't get through it.  So, I guess I am gonna have to keep switching flavors.  I am determined to do this and get this done.  I am ready for a happy new me!  I will update next week with how much weight I lose.  Thanks for reading!
