Product Description

Product Description





“Professional athletes are pillars of their respective communities. They are heroes in the eyes of boys and girls and are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that positively represents their community.”



The public loves a good scandal. Seeing someone fall from the pinnacle of success makes a great headline. No one knows that better than I do. What started out as a promising career in college football, spiralled into scandal and shame.



But being a hero is easier said then done. Especially when there are those who expected to see the great Brody Madden fail. I craved nothing except being the best—willing to do anything to prove them wrong. But I went too far, and I tried too hard, and it broke me.



“At the time of going to print, Jordan Elliott was unavailable for comment.”



I met Brody Madden in my senior year of college. An Australian native on an international scholarship, I was the female soccer sensation with stars in her eyes and no room for a hotshot wide receiver with a chip on his shoulder.



But a heart bursting with ambition and a driving fire to succeed isn’t made of stone. I became his strength, his obsession, and the greatest love of his life. Only I wasn’t there when he needed me most.



This is a story about love and a game that takes everything. Where the path to glory is paved with sacrifice. Where pressure makes you, or breaks you, and triumph is born in the ashes of failure. Where two people’s end game will change everything.



*** 18+ recommended. Contains adult language and adult themes.

4.5 stars for Kate McCarthy's "The End Game".

I'll start by saying that I loved the female lead Jordan, especially because she was Australian and there were a lot of references to Australian things (i.e. the delish thing we call Vegemite / Milo, etc)

The End Game is not just a story of a superstar soccer player meeting a superstar football player. There are a lot of layers to this story that make it truly a pleasure to read. This story allows you to understand the pressures that come with being on top of your game and how those pressures can get to you and take you from an all time high down to your own all time low.

This is the first of Kate's work that I have read and since have gone onto read some of her other titles. She truly is a word wizard!

This is my first novel by this author and i really enjoyed it. It did sit on my kindle for a while before i dove in but i am glad that i did. The story is original and the characters feel real and their flaws are true. I loved the tension, the unknown and the love that these too had. It was written so well and became nearly impossible to put down.
Its a great sports read without too much boring sport talk.
Its got the feels that make you care.
Its got the characters that also make you care.

this is the first book I have read by Kate McCarthy, but it will not be the last. This story kept me glued and fighting sleep so I could keep reading. the main characters were both flawed and real and being Australian I loved that the lead female was an aussie. Story had many twists and turns and felt very real.

Superstar soccer player meets superstar football player – they live happily ever after. Do not think for a second that this book is that way inclined. This story is about two complicated souls at the top of their respective games with very flawed characteristics.

In a very unique way, they are thrown together and sparks fly. Those sparks aren’t necessarily good ones. They are both alpha’s and learn that with the pressures to stay at the top, they have to rely on each other.

The character that resonated with me is Brody. His whole life, he’s never measured up to his family. Being the best has never been good enough. Jordon has also had a hard past but she hasn’t had her years berated by her so-called loved ones.

There was a point where I thought we were going to go head first into a chapter of clichés when Brody tells her to he’s not good for her and then acts like a douche. Even I didn’t see what was coming and, I have to say, make sure you are ready for the rollercoaster that ensues.

This is the first of Kate’s work that I have read and I’m keen to read more. She can certainly weave a story that had me thinking about the characters long after I finished the book.

I did get a bit lost in the cast of thousands when teammates and roommates were introduced but I didn’t waste too much time in trying to figure out who they were. Eventually, I was able to piece them together.

Highly recommend this read.

I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.

Things are about to get gushy. But HOLY BOOK HANGOVER!! I can't bring myself to move on from this one. I've tried picking up a few different books, but after the amazingness of The End Game, I'm struggling to find something else to excite me.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love sport, so the fact that this book featured two sports had me all giddy with excitement. Jordan Elliott is the Aussie soccer sensation with a scholarship in the U.S. and Brody Madden is the wide receiver whose star is on the rise. When these two come together it's explosive!

These characters! Jordan and Brody were so perfect for each other. Their love was a thing of beauty. But loving someone doesn't guarantee smooth sailing. And their love is going to be put to the test like neither of them could have guessed.

I loved Jordan's strength and honesty. And Brody... Well, he broke me. Brody Madden is far from perfect. But it was the way that he saw himself that hit me right in the feels. I can't put into words my love for him. Top of the book boyfriend list guys. Right up there with the best of them.

This was the first book that I'd read by Kate McCarthy, and shame on me, because I'm just so blown away. How does an author take simple words, put them down on paper, and have them affect me so greatly? I didn't just love this book. I was consumed by it. I felt it everywhere. In my chest, in my stomach, in my head, and in my heart. I wasn't in any way prepared for the impact of this story and its characters. It was gritty. It was raw. It was lightness. It was darkness. It was love.

All the feels. All the stars.
