Book Trailer: https://youtu.be/-xYRxoejZFY
In New York City, an underground society of supernatural beings exists, hidden among everyday humans. They don't know of our activities or any of our secrets.
The districts of the Works are made up of vampires, wolves, shifters, witches, and I'm in the fifth and arguably most important district, the Patchwork. My father is the leader of our group, and he oversees all of the other factions.
As his only daughter, that makes me the princess of it all. Cool, right? Actually...no.
Sure, I live in a mansion and money isn't an object, but that doesn't matter because I can't leave. I have a guard who follows me around 24/7. My father and three older brothers treat me like I'm a fragile piece of glass, never allowed to take an independent step or make any decisions on my own.
It's beyond frustrating--especially since my father essentially runs my life.
He says what I do, when I do it, how I do it, and all that jazz. He tests his formulas and new techniques on me. I'm a walking science experiment.
I hate it.
I hate my life here.
But then he comes along: Killian.
He's just some vampire...or so I thought.
But you'll have to read my story to find out what I mean. To know my secrets.
Until then, though, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rebekah von Stein.
And I'm a descendant of Dr. Frankenstein.
Welcome to the Works.

"Wow! Toni Aleo is the queen of hockey romance but now she writes paranormal flawlessly. Is there anything she can’t write? I think not. She weaved this new world of witches, wolves, vampires and Dr. Frankenstein’s descendants, that had me hooked from the very first page. It was a fresh new story that I devoured in one sitting. This story was filled with suspense, mystery and romance. It had me on edge wanting, no, needing to know what would happen next." - GoodReads Review \\ Jill M \\ Embrace The Romance
"Okay, so what the hell? I didn't see that coming. I mean, really, the queen of hockey writing about vampires, werewolves and Dr. Frankenstein's descendants? Let me be a little sceptical. And after I read it, let me apologize for it. This book was a fresh wave. I devoured it. It took me only one night to finish it because this story didn't let me go. I'm sitting here trying to put together the pieces - not funny - but I can't. I want to read more books like this one. Just keep it up, Toni!" - GoodReads Review \\ Becca
"I loved this book it was phenomenal.I could not put it down for anything. I help my breath for most of it and still didn't fully exhale when it was over! The end was left with a bit of a cliffhanger and it has me wanted so much more!" - GoodReads Review \\ Ash \\ Morning Books and Coffee

Paranormal is my go to first love of Romance books so add in a super hot Hockey Romance writer and I'm on it! Thrilled to see Toni Aleo venture out to a new genre. And hold on because she NAILS this!
I love books that give me all the beasties. In Pieces we see Shifters, Vampires, Witches, Frankenstein's descendants and Wolves. There is mention of humans but we don't come across any in this story. After getting the lay of the world, I really felt this was almost dystopian in nature. Things have evolved over time. The supernatural is living among the humans but still keep to themselves. Each faction has a leader, but Rebekah's father is the ruler over all. And he has secrets running miles deep!
So many secrets in this book, in fact, I can't share much more with you. Rebekah, despite being pieced together, is a typical young adult--, rebellious, prone to swoon, emotional, trying to be independent. Her heart has been broken but she is trying to live her life as best as her overprotective brother's will allow. The secondary characters absolutely made this book--the prisoners, the brothers. ex-boyfriends, Rebekah's uncle--all made for a very rich story.
Killian is also a mystery. The banter between he and Becca is so flirty. The two of them are connected at the soul level. I sense a change coming in the WORKS and these two are going to be the catalyst.
Fantastic start for a new series. LOVE what Toni is doing int he paranormal world! Bring me more!!!
