Ellie Davis has finally begun to mend the pieces of her shattered heart. With a new job slinging drinks behind the bar at Charlotte’s latest hot spot and a crush on her deliciously sexy bar manager things are finally starting to look up.
New job plus new man equals the perfect anecdote to help Ellie forget all about bad boy Max McLellan…or so she thinks.
This is Ellie’s journey and it isn’t always pretty.
It isn’t always neat.
It isn’t always happy.
But it’s hers.
His End Game. Going into this story I thought the title was perfect, yet predictable. We’ve all read the contemporary romances where girl likes boy, boy doesn’t know girl exists. The typical high school story where they somehow come together and fall in love.
Well, this wasn’t your typical romance. When tragedy strikes, I was convinced I knew how the story would end, confused and lost along with the people left behind. So many emotions ran through me including anger, hope, sadness, loneliness, rage, empathy, grief. Then another major event happens and by now, through all these emotions, the title makes me angry because again, I think I’ve figured out how it will end and I’m not sure I like it. I don’t do spoilers so this is extremely hard to describe how I felt though each turn. His End Game was mentioned a lot throughout the book and each time it held a new meaning.
This novel had so many twists and turns, every time I thought I knew what would happen, the author surprised me. This is what makes a great book though. Nobody wants to read predictable. It kept my attention, I literally could not put it down. RB Hillard’s voice was strong, emotions raw and storyline suspenseful. I loved this book so much it’s going on my list of books to read again and again. Highly recommended!

If I wrote a song for you, this would be it. Max held out his hand. Dance with me?” I wanted to cry. I didn’t want him to go. I wanted forever. He was sunshine and moonlight, sandy beaches and salty air. He was happy laughter and sexy smiles. He was my best friend, my lover, my heart…He was everything good in this world, and believe me, few things were ever good in my world. I didn’t want to lose him, but would never begrudge him this experience.
I took his hand. “We’ve never danced together, have we?”
“This is just the first of many, Ellison Davis,” he murmured, pressing his lips to mine.
“I like the sound of that,” I said against his mouth. We danced for the remainder of the song and just when I thought it was over, it began again.
