My Thoughts ~
Romantic Suspense Fans, if you've been craving the bookish mashup of NCIS, JAG, and your personal favorite FBI drama, then End Game by Rachel Dylan will be the love of your bookish life!
I found End Game to be a plot-driven, whodunit story. The author did a really good job portraying the investigative nature of the various agencies featured in End Game. I was impressed by how realistic this aspect was, and the inclusion of multiple perspectives really helped with that! This aspect of the story means that readers learn some of the information and twists as it's being reported to the main characters.
While the characters weren't soulmate characters for me, the multiple perspectives provide a plethora of relatable, real-life issues! For instance, as the attraction between Bailey and Marco develops into the potential for something more, Bailey has to confront her fear of loss before she can open her heart to something new with Marco. Izzy, the rookie NCIS agent, finds God as she struggles with moving past a trauma (this trauma could be triggering, but it was delicately handled). Additionally, NCIS Special Agent Marco Agostini is the bookish equivalent of NCIS ' Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo -- swoon, LOL!
Three Stars ~ End Game by Rachel Dylan is an intriguing start to what is sure to be an intriguing series! End Game is the first book in the author's new Capital Intrigue Series from Bethany House.
