Give me a second while I regain my composure.
Holy heck is the Holy Grail of all sports related books.
The End Game was brilliantly written by one heck of a talented author, Kate McCarthy.
Jordan Elliott has moved to Austin, Texas to attend a new college and persue her dreams as a world champion soccer player. She made all the right choices, had perfect grades and determination every girl could dream of. That is until she is asked by her professor to tutor Brody Madden. She was asked to tutor him because of her past issues with a learning disability that her brother had. She took that job as a tutor and with that decision, her whole life has changed. While she shines on the soccer field , she struggles with getting Brody to believe in himself as a player and a college student. She realizes not only she is saving his career as a football star, she is trying to save his life too.
Brody, a football god, attends the same college Jordan does. He struggles with his day to day studies because he has dyslexia. His uncle, both Jordan and Brody's professor, assigns him a tutor. At first, the tutoring doesn't help. So, Brody turns to "other things" that he thinks may help him, drugs. The one friend he should be able to count on the most is the one friend who brings him down even faster. He keeps pushing the drugs into his hands. Brody quickly becomes addicted to prescription pills. The drugs send him into a downward spiral. He begins to push everyone away, even the woman he loves more than anything. But is the love enough to save him? Can he make the right decision? Drugs or Jordan?
This book hit home with me. I lived the life of a co-dependant.Read more ›
I didn't fully connect to either character and therefore I didn't really feel the emotional pain that most people who have read this book felt. Jordan came off as a bit brash, and Brody switched between tortured and plain old grumpy a-hole.
Still, if you are looking for a new adult, sports romance featuring a spunky female Australian soccer player and a hot Texan Football player then please do give this book a go.
This is a college football romance like no other. The End Game brought out more emotion than any other sports romance I have ever read. It goes deeper than the dramas of college students on campus. It’s raw, it’s emotional, it’s heart-wrenching but it’s also very funny and sweet. It touches on a topic I (personally) have never read about before and to be inside the heads of characters while they try and deal with the pressures of their personal lives, school, stardom and success in their fields was a wonderful ride, and Kate McCarthy nailed every part of it.
“…that’s what happens when your need to be the best eclipses all else. Sacrifices are made, and those you love are always the first to suffer.”
Kate writes in a dual POV, but we begin with Jordan Elliott, who has made the huge move from Australia to Texas, USA to take on a soccer scholarship for her senior year. Her hopes and dreams of becoming an international soccer player are right at her finger tips. All she needs to do is put her head down, work and train hard and be selected in the Australian team for the upcoming World Cup Championship. And as if Jordan didn’t have enough on her plate, she is asked by her professor if she could help a struggling student in her not-so-free time.
Brody Madden is a rising football star hero. A ‘god’ to many. Invincible. But Brody is battling with the pressures of school, his controlling and unforgiving father with a public image that needs to be kept perfect, and the whole of Texas wanting nothing more than for him to be the very best… But how far will he go to make everyone happy?Read more ›
