This is going to be Ryan Justice’s year. It’s his last year of college and his last year as a hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies. He’s making all the plays in preparation for achieving his dream of being drafted into the NHL.
This is Sofia Castilleja’s beginning. She is starting her college career as a star member of Bellevue’s brand-new gymnastics team. She’s going to tumble her way to success, first in school and then by realizing her dream of opening her own gym.
Ryan and Sofia didn’t see each other coming, but once they meet, they can’t look away. Their dreams are destined to take them in opposite directions. But it doesn’t take them long to realize that waking up to reality together may be better than dreaming alone.
To be honest, after I finished this book, I went back and read the first book in the Assassins series. The hero of this book, Ryan, first appeared as a little boy in the other series. I’m a huge fan of continuous series and I love watching younger characters grow up and get their HEA. End Game is a classic new adult romance. Both Ryan and the heroine, Sofia, are in college and their whole lives are ahead of them. Sofia is a gymnast and Ryan’s sister’s roommate. Ryan is hockey player with dreams of making it to the NHL while Sofia wants to open her own gymnastics gym. They both have responsibilities and goals that may take them in different directions. Sofia is initially resistant to Ryan’s charms but he wins her in very sweet and romantic ways. Their relationship starts as normal college romance but quickly grows deeper and into something more.
I’m only a few years out of college myself and I still find it easy to relate to New Adult Romances. The characters have their whole lives in front of them and yet it feels like every decision they make is affecting the direction of their future. Both Ryan and Sofia have a lot of responsibility and within each other, they find peace and respite. While young, their relationship grows strong as they face difficult decision about what they want out of life. Of course, there are appearances by other Assassins and Bellevue Bullies characters which add to the book if you’ve read Toni Aleo’s other books. Like the author’s other books, End Game is full of heart and love and I just adored it!
About the Author:
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?
