End Game - Toni Aleo

This is book #4, in the Bellevue Bullies series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this fantastic series in order.

 

Ryan is excited to get to the NHL and is working hard to get there.  Then he meets someone else just as dedicated but to her own sport.  He has to work a bit to convince her it is worth it, and maybe they really have a shot.

 

Sofia is all in when it comes to her future and her career.  Why should a guy like Ryan get in her way?  The attraction between them literally charges the room when they are in it together.  Her roommates brother is worth the chance, if she gives him one.

 

This was a sexy and sweet story.  I loved these characters together and their journey is so much fun to read.  This is a great addition to the series.  If you have been a fan of these hockey books all along - you're going to love the cameo's of some of the past characters.  I found this to be a great read.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

End Game (Bellevue Bullies, #4) by Toni Aleo
End Game - Toni Aleo

Toni Aleo leads the league with END GAME, the fourth book in the Bellevue Bullies series. Senior, Ryan Justice, is hoping to make the NHL draft. Sofia Castilleja is a freshman on Bellevue’s new gymnastics team. Neither one of them planned on letting a relationship distract them from their goals. END GAME takes place in Nashville, Tennessee. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult audiences.

Ah, Ryan Justice swoon. Ryan is Shae Adler’s nephew (Assassin’s series). He is the son of Shae’s twin sister, Grace. He goes through a great deal emotionally in this story. He does some soul searching. He is a great big brother and cousin. He is the oldest of the Adler/Justice kids. As a result, he wants to set a good example, and not disappoint anyone. He is protective, thoughtful, and smart.

Sofia is Ryan’s younger sister, Amelia’s roommate/teammate. She was once destined to be in the Olympics, but an injury shattered that dream. Now she is at Bellevue on a full gymnastic scholarship. I enjoyed her character. She never really had good friends growing up. Her life was all about gymnastics. She is hard working and determined. She is very concerned for her mother who has MS. She wants to make sure she is successful, so she can help provide for her.

I like how the story starts out on Halloween. The matching Halloween costumes of the Adler/Justice clan is classic. It shows how close the two families are.

I love when Sofia and Ryan meet. Ryan is not used to girls not throwing themselves at him. Sofia has no experience with boys and is nervous around them. Ryan is very determined to get Sofia to go out with him. They are adorable together. They have a lot in common and make each other stronger.

The plot was skillfully executed. I love how Sofia’s sponsorship played out. Ryan had some interesting obstacles. I swear Toni Aleo always makes me cry. Her stories are heartfelt and meaningful. This story is a good example of how life doesn’t always take you on the path you wanted but your life can be just as rewarding or possibly more so. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Young love and ambition are at the center of this coming of age romance. After years of preparation, Ryan's career path is finally within sight. His NHL hopes could be a reality, if his heart doesn't get in the way. Sofia is as determined as she is graceful. She is finally where she wants to be. Her dream is just on the horizon. Will her emotions derail her dream. End Game is a journey sacrifice that blends romance and sports into a perfect 10.

"A Cold dark Place", by Toni Anderson
A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice) (Volume 1) Paperback - April 1, 2014 - Toni Anderson
Book #1, in the Cold Justice series

This is a mix of suspense with a strong romantic undertone. My first experience reading this author was quite enjoyable although I am not too keen on being overloaded with sex scenes, in “A Cold Dark Place” we do find quite a bit. 

One of the main players is FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney who is searching for a serial killer and happens to stumble on evidence of a vigilante at work and Alex Parker, a security consultant, who plays the part of an assassin hired to eliminate serial killers and pedophiles. The two meet and risk everything when they fall in love……awe….

Although this is mostly a suspense driving story, the sizzling romance just spices the enjoyment. Time your reading well and this dark and intriguing plot will have you turning pages to see what comes next. The entire story is dark and edgy and is written to emotionally engage us. As it progresses at a steady tempo, we have some twists and turns along the way to keep us on our toes. This mystery flows well and the style is not taxing. Good characterization: Mallory and Alex are perfect for each other….awe….

A very entertaining story…….

A Cold Dark Place by Toni Anderson
A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice) (Volume 1) Paperback - April 1, 2014 - Toni Anderson

This is my first read by this author, I have to say “awesome”. This book kept me involved and wondering what would happen next. It is hard to define the line between bad and really evil. In this book the line blurred in many places but all worked out in the end. Really good story and I will definitely go back for another in this series.
