IT'S LIVE! The Game (That Girl Series Book 2) by HJ Bellus - ARC Review


**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content. 

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?

I love reading books by HJ Bellus. No matter what struggles her characters go through they are never the damsel in distress. Her characters are strong, sassy and witty. This story is just another addition to her amazing writing and beautiful story telling.

Jazzy and Levi’s journey had me laughing, cringing, smiling and crying. These two were definitely made for each other. They both have their struggles and need to find their place in the world. Levi has definitely met his match. I love how Jazzy gives as good as she gets. With her fierce attitude and witty comebacks, she is still a broken soul. Her story made me cry. I felt her pain. I wanted to hold her and comfort her.

Levi just has this way about him. Through all the dickhead comments and tough ass exterior he’s just a guy who needs to feel worthy. There were definitely moments when I wanted to punch him in the junk but then he had his moments that were totally heart melting.

I absolutely love that we get more of Lynlee and Linc as well in this story. It’s super cute and I love how HJ Bellus portrays these characters personalities. You can feel the emotions throughout the story. Another 5 Star read from an amazing author. I would definitely recommend picking up your copy today.

** ARC received in exchange for an honest review

I am just a simple country girl getting one story out of my head at a time. I was raised in small town, USA and still reside there with my husband and children. I am a huge country music fan and am inspired by it everyday. I live and love country life, and you will find those elements in my books. I also adore strong and brave lead female characters, and strive to be a courageous and independent woman in everyday life. In my opinion, life is no fun without a good sense of humor, sprinkles, cheese whiz, and candy. It is the simple things that warm my heart. 
Live life your way, HJ Bellus
