This has become my favorite book out of the 3. I fell in love with Reid. I fell in love with Everleigh. I fell in love with Leo. It had the ups and downs that every book needs but Emma took it to another level. I don’t know what it was but I just couldn’t put this book down. It held my attention from the first page and kept it until the last. In fact, I actually squealed during the epilogue. But Emma, that epilogue was cruel. It was a tease. It left me wanting so much more. Not just of Ever and Reid, but of Leah and Corey and Macey and Jack. You teased about all three couples and thats just cruel.
Ever and Reid’s story is very much a second chance romance mixed with a friends to lovers romance. They were best friends growing up. But they were also in love with each other but never told each other. Reid is 4 years older than Ever and wanted to wait until she was 18 to say or even do anything to show her that he loved her. But Ever left for college before he had the chance. And now she’s back. And those feelings, they are still there. And there is no stopping them.
I can’t believe this is the end of the By His Game series. It satisfied me at the same time left me craving more. But I know, unless Emma surprises us all, that this is the end. And I am ok with it. But to me, it shows how awesome an author is when you are left begging for more.
