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?

My Review: 

This Review is for both the Prequel and Laces and Lace combined.

Laces and Lace might be my absolute favorite book by Toni Aleo. It is an emotional ride from start to finish. Karson and Lacey are amazing and their story is one of a kind.

Aleo took a hard subject, breast cancer, and turned it into something amazing. She masterfully showed the struggles of a survivor and how they view themselves. Lacey is a phenomenal character, who shows such maturity and devout faith, it comes off the pages into your heart.

Karson is a good strong man. He takes one look at Lacey and knows she is it for him. But people and things get in between and life takes a detour before he can get back on track with Lacey. He knows what a mistake he has made and would do anything to be able to erase it, but since that’s not possible, he will have to work hard to move past it.

I’ve disliked side characters of Aleo’s before, but I have to say that never before have I so hated a character in a book (or book series) as I do Nate Martin. The way his behavior is written amps up the hate factor by 100%.

Lacey’s entire family come off as manipulators, and I wanted to slap the lot of them. It felt good that Lacey stood up to them at many points during the story.

I found Karson and Lacey’s story to be wildly emotional and had me cheering them on from the sidelines. There were so many parts of this story that touched my heart, and so many moments that almost broke me too.

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. I felt that the characters, Lacey and Karson, ended up with their unique story because anything less amazing wouldn’t have suited them.
