Title: The End Zone
Author: L.J. Shen
Rating: 4 stars
I was given an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review
Jolie has had a crush on her best friend Sage since they became best friends at the age of ten. Now they are roommates in college and Sage has come to the realisation, after a particular incident that he has deep feelings for Jolie.
To prevent his teammate from asking Jolie out, he comes up with the scheme of asking Jolie to become his fake girlfriend, only things aren’t so fake after all.
I originally read this story in the Team Player Anthology but it now has an extended epilogue which I enjoyed reading. Plus there was an extra surprise and there was an extended epilogue for Vicious (which is a favourite of mine). In this we get to see Em and Vicious older and Vaughn is all grown up at the age of sixteen. It also sets up a spin-off series featuring the children of all the Hot-Holes.
