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.
This story right here is the very reason why I have and always will freaking love and admire Toni Aleo’s beautifully captivating writing style! I cannot even begin to express how excited I was when she announced that her upcoming release End Game was Ryan Justice’s story. In case you don’t know who he is, readers first meet him as a little boy in Taking Shots, the first book in the Assassians series. That is right…he is Shea Adler’s nephew! And if you didn’t know that, don’t worry because this story is just as enjoyable as a standalone!
End Game introduces us to the next generation of the Assassians/Bellevue Bullies. I think that it is so fitting that the first book telling the story of the next generation is Ryan Justice’s because he is the oldest and he was so freaking adorable as a little boy. Ryan and Sophia’s story is one of a kind and perfectly shows all the reasons why I love these books so much!
Although there is a ton I want to tell readers about this book, I think that this is one of those books that you are going to want to experience firsthand! This is a beautiful story about two opposites who fall in love right before our eyes! I strongly recommend dropping everything you are doing right now and pick yourself up a copy of End Game!
