End Game by Lisa Renee Jones had me in tears at the beginning of the continuation in this series. As much as I wanted to read it all in one sitting, I had to read it in chunks because it took me a while to get over the plot twist I did not see coming.
I kept thinking Lisa wouldn’t do this to her readers. How could she? I’d hoped that Shane’s worst nightmare wouldn’t come to life, and had hopes that everything would somehow work out for all parties involved, Derek included. Sadly, I was wrong and I’m still sad, and I just don’t know how long it’ll take me to come to terms with this unexpected twist.
I liked that all the i’s were dotted and t’s crossed with Emily’s past and that they found a way to keep her brother safe. I also enjoyed that Shane didn’t have to give up his passion for law entirely. That was a nice turn of events.
I thought the way Shane proposed to Emily was unique in that this isn’t what you normally see in romance books, let alone their wedding. That was another nice touch.
All in all, I enjoyed the conclusion in this series. But is it wrong of me to hope that Adrian isn’t the monster he seems and that all he portrays is a facade in order to protect the woman he loves? I mean, was this foreshadowing for what readers can expect from Lisa Renee Jones in the near future? I think Adrian could make a fabulous latin hero, and if there was a book for him I’d be all over it. As unlikeable as he seems, it’s just as how much I want to read all about him.
