Jordan Elliott was a star soccer player from Sydney, Australia. Her twin brother had sacrificed for her career and it was finally paying off. Jordan moved to Austin, Texas for her senior year of college at Colton Park University to play for their soccer team. It was only supposed to be a pit stop in her life until she signed onto a team after college. Little did she know she’d find the true meaning of home while she was there.
Brody pulled at my heartstrings from the very beginning and I wanted to reach in a give him a hug. Truth be told, I still feel like I need to give him a hug. Football was Brody’s everything. He wanted to be the best and would do anything to get there. It was where he was confident in himself and could be free. The more I got to really see of the real Brody the more I saw his pain caused by his family making my heart bleed for him and fall for him more and more.
“Out there on the field, the game is everything. It builds you up, breaks you down, and it bleeds you dry. But I love it. It’s the only place I’m free.”
“I am never going to be intelligent, or sharp, or hold a meaningful conversation that doesn’t include the subject of football. I am never going to be normal. I am who I am, and I have to accept that it’s all I’m going to be without someone trying to give me false hope.”
Brody fought for Jordan to give him a chance and when she started to see tiny bits of the real Brody shining through she couldn’t help but start to fall for him as he cared for her and was someone that could understand the life of wanting to be the best at your sport.
Jordan was the light in Brody’s darkness showing him that he was worthy of love and acceptance. She loved him for him, flaws and all. She was the strength he needed to get through many tough internal battles.
I loved how they each showed the other that although their wholes lives had been dedicated to a sport that was their planned career, once they found love in each other they found real happiness and their home. This story is about courage and fighting for what you love.
How could I let this happen? I fly halfway across the world chasing a dream and end up with the hottest, brightest, sweetest love I’ll ever have the chance of knowing. Brody is exciting and turbulent, charming and sexy, and deeply tortured down beneath the surface. The man buried inside me right now is wildly imperfect, and I want forever with him.
I go through spurts where I like to read sports romances and this is by far my favorite that I’ve read so far. I will definitely be reading McCarthy’s other books. I don’t want to give too much away of Brody and Jordan’s story. This is a book you need to experience without knowing too much so that you can enjoy every second of it.
I thought it would be like most "Sports Romance", but I was severely wrong. Jordan is a strong confident young woman, who has worked her a$$ off to get where she's at. An overachiever, she knows where she is going in life & soccer is it. Her passion has brought her from Australia to Texas on a scholarship. Brody on the other hand is a Football All Star at the same college Jordan just transferred to. He is the golden one & has everything handed to him; popularity, girls, looks, athletics, except one thing...grades.
Jordan wants to focus on her career, no boys. But when she is chosen to tutor Brody will she be able to resist. Together they are a powerhouse, unstoppable, and spontaneous. Not to mention on fire. But they're also destructible & under pressure at all times. While things are going as planned for Jordan, Brody is spiralling out of control. His issues are real & painful to himself & others. Brody struggles with getting help & can't see past getting the next touchdown, feeling good, or getting his fix of Jordan. It eventually changes their lives forever.
I loved that it spans over the course of several years & brings you to the present. In the end Brody & Jordan get their HEA. But to say they earned it is an understatement. As for the additional characters, they brought so much to story, such a tight group, always there for each other. The story & character build up was impeccable. I really was so impressed & touched. This is an issue that isn't talked or written about as much & personally I have a loved one who has been impacted by this disease. So it was definitely emotional for me, but it was beautiful too. The reason behind the title is amazing & puts all the pieces together. Thank you for writing The End Game.
