Release Day Blitz-- The Game by HJ Bellus


Born to shine.
Groomed to dominate.

Levi Wilks is destined only to be a champion…

Number one on the field, in the record books, and in every fans’ heart. This star QB is perfection from head to toe. Only his looks rival his talent on the field.

Not one flaw to be found…that is, until he looks in the mirror…

Levi sees his dad’s dreams, his mother’s demands, and lost dreams of his own. Dreams that vanished one by one as his life, and career, were carefully etched out for him by others.

He was always jealous of his younger brother, Lincoln, a carefree spirit. Some nights he’d pray for a normal life. An average life. But that wasn’t who he was, he’d never have the courage to be like him.

But what happens when Levi is forced to sit on the sidelines for a couple of games?

At the lowest part of his career, he finds himself magnetized by a blonde beauty.

This unexpected girl challenges everything he knows…

And dares him to fight for everything he wants…

Is Levi Wilks ready for her? Is he ready for “The Game” of his life?

"Blood falls like tears. The only difference is tears are salty and meaningless. They never help ease the situation, rather just create a mess. Blood falls and leaves stains of hurt behind."

I can not express the love I have for Levi's story! I'm so happy that we get to see the side of Levi Wilks that no one else can see. 

HJ Bellus has done it again! If you have read That Girl, then you met Levi. Everyone has an opinion about him. Some say he's moody. Some say that he's just a huge a-hole that needs to get a reality check. 
But there are few, like me, that see him as beautifully broken

When his football career is put on hold, Levi thinks it's the final nail in his coffin. How much more could he possibly go through? He never thought he would see a bright day again...until he saw HER.

"I need to come to terms with the fact that Levi Wilks is my own personal wrecking ball, set out to destroy every single piece of me."

After reading That Girl, one of the questions I had was, "What happened to Jazzy?" I wanted to know how she was. Did she ever get out of town? Did she live out any of her dreams? The baby? All my questions were answered, and boy, was it a story

Jazzy never had an easy life, and she fought hard for everything she has. After her best friend left her, her life began to slow, torturous piece after another. She comes off as a sassy, opinionated, and strong woman. But underneath, she's torn, broken and completely lost.

"How do you look in the mirror on a daily basis when you hate the skin you wear? The bathroom sink is my greatest enemy."

When Levi and Jazzy first meet, it's entertaining for sure! Both of them have so much attitude and built up aggression that it's only a matter of time before it comes to blows. 
In other words...they fall for each other...and they fall hard.

Love is not in the cards for either one of them, but that's the funny thing about love-- it doesn't care what happened in your past. Love happens when it's suppose to.  
Sometimes falling in love can feel like the worst possible thing to you, but without knowing it, it could be the most eye-opening adventure of your life.

This book had so many great moments! I would find myself laughing so hard at some parts that I had tears. Sometimes, I would be so engrossed in the story that I forgot my kids were in the room! (Whoops! hehe) 
But in true HJ form, this story had a very serious undertone. The topics discussed in this book left me wanting to hug my friends and family, and tell them how much I loved them. My emotions were on high alert. 

What happened to Jazzy, and what she continues to go through, is absolutely heartbreaking!! Grab a tissue...hell, grab the whole box!!

"We have it all, Levi. If we can fight to be us in the world."

Like I said before, I love the person that Levi is. Yes, he's rude and conceited. Yes, he's too blunt for his own good. But he is also a lost person who can't seem to find his way back home; wherever that may be. Jazzy is the perfect person for him, and vice versa.

"And I just want to be with you, Jazzy, on the dock, fishing. I want to be where someone sees me as Levi AND number eleven."

Levi and Jazzy now have a special place in my heart- right next to Lincoln and Lynlee. I might like Levi more than his brother, but shhhhhhh...don't tell;)  
I hope everyone enjoys this book as much as I did. 

Grab the tissues, and your favorite football jersey, and read a story about two missing puzzle pieces searching to find their home among the others. 

Thank you HJ Bellus!! Another TOUCHDOWN!
