Return to the Endgame trilogy where blood is thick, but passion is thicker…
He doesn’t believe in fairy-tale endings…
They used to call Evan Bishop the golden boy. He had it all and was about to close the business deal of a lifetime, then marry the woman of his dreams. But everything goes to hell when a faceless enemy wants to destroy his family’s empire and see him dead. Except the bomb meant to kill him fails. He wakes up from a coma to find his face scarred and his brother missing and wanted for murder. Now that he’s damaged, he hides away from the world—including the woman he loves. He refuses to be a burden to her, so even though it destroys him, he sets her free.
She’s about to prove him wrong…
Isla MacDonald isn’t walking away from Evan just because he’s decided to shut her out of his life. He blames himself for the bombing that got her father killed and nearly killed him—but he’s wrong. After all attempts to see him fail, with a broken heart she tries to resume her life and take over her father’s firm. Though it’s not her dream, she wants to honor his legacy. But when someone tries to kill her—twice—she needs a bodyguard. To her surprise Evan steps up and insists on protecting her, putting on a show as the caring fiancé. But he won’t let her back into his life or into his heart. To have any chance at a future together, they’ll have to resurrect the past and stay alive long enough to expose the man determined to see them both dead.
Bishop’s Queens is the 2nd book in the Endgame Trilogy, written by Katie Reus. Bishop’s Queens is Isla & Evan’s story. If you read the first book in this series, then you are aware that Evan broke it off with Isla after becoming scared in a murder attempt. Which now Evan is maybe regretting his decision.
Isla isn’t too happy with life or Evan right now. After the bombing that killed her father, she finds herself running the firm.
After several attempts on Isla’s life, Evan decides to become her bodyguard, after all, she was his queen, and he wants her back in the castle.
This title took me a while to complete. It wasn’t a quick read like the first title, Bishop’s Knight, which I read in one night. This title took me a few weeks to read, which never happens, with one of Katie Reus’s titles. I am going to blame it all on Evan’s character. Some men complain, at a minute of trouble the woman he’s with bails. But with Evan’s character, he pushes Isla away. I thought she should have let him court a little more before accepting him back.
I think Bishop’s Knight set the bar just a little high, didn’t leave much wiggle room for this story. Though the plot was predictable, I found the story, an okay read.
Now, the Bishop’s Endgame sounds like it’s going to be a fun read, waiting impatiently to see how this series unfolds.
