When Toni Aleo first told me she was writing another Bellevue Bullies book, End Game, my excitement went through the roof. While I love the original Assassins, the past couple of books my mind has been on that next generation. Though while I was thinking Aiden (Lucas and Fallon’s son; see Breaking Away and Twenty-Two), Toni was writing Ryan’s story.
That’s what I asked her. Apparently we already met Ryan Justice, and while I was going nuts trying to remember every single character in the previous Bellevue Bullies books, Toni quickly eased my suffering. He’s Shea Adler’s nephew, and we met him in Taking Shots when the kid was five. Clearly he wasn’t on my radar back then.
Well little Ryan grew up, and is now getting his own book! End Game by Toni Aleo is the fourth book in the Bellevue Bullies series, though is a standalone sports romance, and will be released on June 12th!
Check out that precious cover for End Game below, and read the full blurb!
P.S. Ryan looks adorable with those glasses, and has me believing he might be a bit of a geek. What do you think?
By Toni Aleo
(Bellevue Bullies #4)
This is going to be Ryan Justice’s year. It’s his last year of college and his last year as a hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies. He’s making all the plays in preparation for achieving his dream of being drafted into the NHL.
This is Sofia Castilleja’s beginning. She is starting her college career as a star member of Bellevue’s brand-new gymnastics team. She’s going to tumble her way to success, first in school and then by realizing her dream of opening her own gym.
Ryan and Sofia didn’t see each other coming, but once they meet, they can’t look away. Their dreams are destined to take them in opposite directions. But it doesn’t take them long to realize that waking up to reality together may be better than dreaming alone.
About the author
My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose
pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey
games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures,
scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color
pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
