After reading Taking Shots - Assassins Book 1 - and loving it, I knew I just had to be a part of this tour! Even though I enjoyed Taking Shots a little bit more, I still enjoyed Trying too Score a lot.
Fallon and Lucas have had a long history together. Lucas and Fallon where once a couple but when Lucas left Fallon heartbroken she chose to run away and forget all about him - that is until life brings them back together. Lucas is a changed man and will do anything in his power to get Fallon back, but Fallon is also a different person, more determined and she will not let herself be fulled by Lucas again, especially since it is not only her heart on the line this time, there's something else, something that she has kept a secret for far too long.
What I didn't like much about the story: Fallon. What I liked more about the story: Fallon. Lol, I know this is confusing, but Fallon was sometimes such a headstrong and she constantly rejected Lucas just to protect her pride, even though this was a bit stressing it was also part of the fun, because she usually ended embarrassing herself and it just made Lucas try harder and set his mind on a new plan to get her back - which really was fun and sweet :)
It was a completely different story from Taking Shots, but still I enjoyed it a lot. There is really no need to read Taking Shots first, though I would suggest you do since you may get a few spoilers to the story. I have really enjoyed the work of Toni Aleo so far, and one thing that I have really learned from all her books: Communication is the key to a good relationship :3
