After all he’s done to keep Quinn...will he lose her anyway? END GAME is book two in The Dawson Family Series and concludes Quinn and Archer epic love story.
My rating: 5 stars
The wait for this book was so worth it! I was so happy to dive back into Quinn and Archer's story and see what was next for them. When Cheat Codes ended, Quinn and Archer were trying to make a relationship work. Quinn was worried about forcing Archer into a relationship because she was pregnant and Archer was trying to take things slow as per Quinn's request. Archer's older brother, Bobby, shows up at the end of the first book as well and the story ends after an incident between Bobby and Quinn. End Game jumps right into the action and starts us where we left off. Quinn learns that the man who tried to barge in is Archer's brother. Archer tells her about how his brother is an addict. Dean is still upset with the both of them. Archer and Quinn are struggling with the long-distance aspect of their relationship and telling each other the extent of their feelings for one another. I do not want to give spoilers but I can say that Archer and Quinn have a lot to figure out before their baby is born.
I fell more in love with Archer and Quinn in this book. I loved seeing their relationship grow and to see them go through the ups and downs of a relationship. Having both of their points of view was interesting and it was so funny to see that they were both feeling the same things but did not know how to discuss it with one another. I think Quinn grew a lot in this book. In Cheat Codes she seemed scared to talk about anything serious or even really think about it. In End Game she started to realize that she needed to talk to Archer and she started admitting things to herself. I loved how she decided what thought was best for her and her child. She was willing to do what was needed for her little family. Archer just became a stronger character and it was clear just how much he loved and cared for Quinn. I loved seeing his parents and brother in this book and learning more about his life before the events of the book. His devotion to Quinn and their child was admirable and endeared me to him even more. It was amazing to see their relationship as it progressed and to see them deal with how to change their goals and views of their future to fit their new predicament. Quinn and Archer give me serious relationship goals. I enjoyed the Dawson clan. Those brothers--Owen and Logan--crack me up so much and even Dean too. I loved Weston and Jackson and the rest of the supporting characters.
What I liked the most about this book was that things weren't easy for Quinn and Archer. Just because they were now together it did not mean everything was easy or fell into place. They did have to deal with real issues and figure out some tricky things. They had to decide if their little family was more important than the dreams they've had for years. Emily is an amazing author who knows how to blend the steamy parts and relationship stuff to make a great book! This book gave me so many feels and was so romantic. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Dawson Family series about Weston! Be sure to check out End Game on Amazon!
