“You’re in my blood, in my veins, in my f****** soul. You’re in my heart and in my fingertips and on my f****** lips like a prayer. You’re f***** everywhere, Jolie Louis. Always have been, always will be.”
This novella had so much packed into so few pages. I loved the push and pull between Sage and Jolie. You could feel the connection between the two. The friendship and the love. They had a great backstory and an even better present.
Sage was such a great character for me. I loved how flawed he was. And what intrigued me even more was the fact that he knew it and just did not give a f***. Jolie was the perfect girl to compliment him, she accepted his faults and still loved him no matter what.
I can not stress enough how great this novella was!
Before starting this, I should preface this by saying this is a novella. I was so excited to start reading this, that fact just kind of blew over my head. It was originally a part of The Team Player Anthology.
Now, with that out of the way, The End Zone was incredibly good. Not that I ever had any doubts, because it was Leigh Shen, but sometimes you never know. The End Zone is a sexy friend to lover’s romance with a smattering of ‘fake’ relationship thrown in. All around, WIN WIN WIN!! Leigh knows how to write about sexy, brooding male heroes and this one is no exception.
Sage and Jolie (JoJo) have known each other since they were kids (about ten years old), when Sage moved into the house next door to Jolie. Night after night, Jolie saw a boy her age frustrated, angry and sad with his surroundings. One night, she couldn’t stand to see him in pain anymore and decided to run to him. That is the beginning of their story.
“And on the eighth night, the girl gave the boy more than friendship and a hug, without even meaning to—and definitely without agreeing to. On the eighth night, the girl gave the boy her heart. He took it silently, never offering his back.”
Present day, Sage and Jolie are seniors in college. Sage is a brooding, cocky, know it all manwhore. He is the rising quarterback that is headed off to the NFL, but where does his relationship with Jolie go? Jolie is a studious, super sweet girl that has been harboring feelings for her best friend. Things change on one fateful night that involves Jolie and a bathroom and a lightbulb moment in Sage’s head.
This book, even as a novella, is everything. I loved that interaction between Sage and Jolie, from friendship at the beginning to more. I would LOVE more of these two, but given that it’s written by Leigh, I would always want more. There friends to lover’s romance is written extremely well, although slightly fast paced. This is strictly due to the nature of the book, a novella. There are SO many goodies in this book, that I can’t talk about, but will say we get multiple HEA epilogues and not necessarily all concerning Sage and Jolie. Do yourself a favor and pick this hot, spicy, funny and sweet little read up. There are so many great hilarious quotes in this book it will have you chuckling! Leigh Shen does not disappoint.
“He is the kid I fell in love with at the age of ten, and the man I would give the world to at the age of twenty.”
Some more memorable quotes:
“If he were any other guy, I’d be all over him like a rash after a torrid Vegas vacation.”
“…considering how Sage’s dick has been passed around like community property. I’m surprised he’s not partly funded by the government.”
Sage was the new neighbor with a troubled home life and Jolie was the young girl next door who wanted to heal his heart with friendship and hugs. Their friendship was strong, but as often happens when time passes, they each wanted something different from their relationship.
I loved the push and pull of their bond. Sage was the quintessential playboy football player...self-assured, cocky, and a player on the field and off. Otherwise confident, Jolie fears that Sage will break her heart if she lets him get too close. They have great chemistry, and their banter is fun and flirty until it's not... 4.5 Stars!
And don't miss the extended epilogue that's included in the ebook and paperback-- more Vicious and Emilia and a sneak peak into a whole new LJ Shen series!!!
Sage is the man about campus and Jolie is the only woman who keeps him at arm's length. I loved their spirited banter and because this is a novella, the author put us out of our misery faster than normal and had these two becoming much closer in less time. It was great to see Sage make the first move, as he had to wear his heart on his sleeve to prove to his girl that they could actually be together long after college was over. Full of himself but still that frightened little boy in the rain, Jolie is the only woman who knew his heart and could capture it with the snap of her fingers. She is the consummate southern girl who loves with all that she is and will protect those she deems worthy.
Their back and forth which ultimately leads to some sexy times and heartfelt confessions was such a joy to read. LJ Shen has made the cocky manwhore her specialty and honestly, no one does it better. By the end, I'm just as enamored as the heroine. There seems to be no way around it and I for one couldn't be happier.
A great addition to the Team Player anthology, The End Zone scores yet another 5 stars from me!
