Bishop’s Queen by Katie Reus

2nd book in the Endgame trilogy. Romantic suspense. For completely understandable arc, this book is best read after the first.
After a near fatal accident and permanent scars, Evan pushed Isla away. He didn’t want her pity. He believes it was his fault that her father was killed.
Isla is done crying over Evan. When her life is in danger from an unknown enemy, Evan is determined to protect her. Then the chemistry is just too strong to be ignored between them.
Can she

Mindy Lou's Book Review
When I read about Evan and Isla in Bishop's Knight I literally cried. You could feel the pain Isla was feeling when Evan cut her off without a word. I'm glad we jumped right into their story next because I wanted to see them fixed so badly.

I'm not usually a fan of pushing away but this author does such a great job of showing how much the pusher loves the other that I can always seem to forgive them for the hurt. Evan is no different. Despite pushing Isla away because of his scars, he was so

4 - "I'm not giving up on us..." Stars!

Book two in Katie’s Endgame Trilogy brings us Evan and Isla’s story second-chance reconnection. This is a couple who have been through the ringer very recently, with the first book offering up a secondary glance into the breakdown of their relationship after a bombing left Evan scarred and Isla’s father dead, something Evan blames himself for, and believes due to his scarring and the loss of her father on his watch that Isla is better off without him.

This one falls firmly on my like pile and although I enjoyed Isla and Evan together, considering all they’ve been through I was hoping for much more of an emotional pull from them than we were actually given. But for what it lacked in that aspect it made up for in terms of suspense and action as readers are teased throughout as to who wants

This one picks up shortly after the first one ends. Evan is still a grade-A jerk. Isla is working towards achieving her late father's goals when all she wants is her own. Never saw him as the bad guy stalking her. Love conquers all in the end. Loved seeing Evie and Dylan again.

Now as to the last brother...how did he wind up there, and how is he going to clear his name

Isla has spent the past two months trying to move on professionally and personally—having more success professionally. Evan Bishop is not a man to get “over” quickly—she’s still in love with the man even though he’s not spoken to her since the day he woke from the coma.

Until Evan finally wakes up and realizes just what he’s thrown away due to his own stubbornness. He pushed the perfect woman, the woman he loves, out of his life just when he needed her most.

Can he convince her to trust him

A very enjoyable and decent romantic suspense story, dealing with mistakes, guilt, forgiveness and love.
The mystery and the romance were vey well balanced, the writing was smooth and clear, fast paced and dual pov.

When book one left off, Evan was badly injured in the bombing that killed Isla’s father and refusing to have anything to do with Isla. His misplaced guilt consumed him to the point of calling off their engagement. Bishop’s Queen picks up two months after the bombing, with both Isla and Evan still floating on an island of denial and struggling to move forward from one another. However, when Isla’s life is on the line, Evan swallows his pride and realizes just how much of a fool he has been. And ...more

Evan and Isla were engaged to be married and madly in love with each other. After a bomb rips his offices apart. Scarring him for life and killing Isla’s father. Evan retreats into himself. He refuses to let Isla see him. Breaks off their engagement and leaves her mourning the death of her father alone.

While there’s no excuse for Evans behaviour he was suffering. He blames himself (repeatedly) for her father’s death, that plus his scars and he thinks he’s saving her.

Isla can’t get over

Bishop and Isla’s story is a suspenseful 2nd chance romance. There’s spying, stalking, blackmail, sabotage and murder. In typical Katie Reus style, the MCs have sizzling chemistry and were both easy to like and root for. The story was definitely entertaining but it was missing that something extra for me.

I definitely felt for Isla. She loved Bishop and never really stopped, even after he cut her out so completely. She was a strong heroine who was by no means a push over or a doormat. She was

This was a really great story from beginning to end.I loved the main characters from the onset of the story Evan and Isla.

The story was filled with intrigue and suspense the entire time and kept you turning the pages to the very end.The story started off with a bang and a whole lot of heartache and sadness.

Evan was a man swimming in guilt and heartache and the misery of his own making. Isla was suffering from the loss of both Evan and her fathers death and unbelievable heartache from the loss of

Another amazing read in this trilogy that has completely captivated me!

Isla is trying to pick up the pieces of her life after the bombing that not only killed her father, but that was the catalyst to Evan pushing her out of his life. When it becomes apparent someone is out to harm her, he now reverses that decision and is forcing himself back in. But the pain she carries from his rejection also carries distrust. What’s to stop him from leaving her again?

Bishop's Queen by Katie Reus is a well written and entertaining read.

The storyline held my interest all throughout the book, it's well paced, enough drama and suspense to keep you turning the pages and I loved watching Bishop & Isla reconnect and get their second chance at love.
These two have amazing chemistry and they totally deserved their happily ever after the pain and hurt they'd been through.

Bishop's Queen is an excellent addition to the Endgame trilogy and I highly recommend

Another Katie Reus novel? Yes, PLEASE! I loved Bishop's Knight and could not wait to get my hands on this next novel in the series. Reus had done an excellent job in the previous novel and whetting our appetite for the next installment - little teases here and there. Gimme! Gimme!

Oh boy is Evan a jerk! Ugh! You are in love with Isla, show it! And not by taking all the decisions away from her. And Isla? Come on, girl! Demand his love or walk away. I did feel there was slightly too much

This is the second book in the Endgame series and I did not read the first book so I was a little lost at first. Isla MacDonald was engaged to Evan Bishop but after the accident that scared him for life he pushes her away. Isla is attacked and that’s all it takes for Evan to realize he will always love and protect her. Ms Reus is superb at intrigue and suspense.

Isla and Evan were the perfect couple, very much in love and looking forward to planning their wedding, but that was before Evan was badly injured in an explosion and things quickly spiralled out of control. Not wanting Isla to be stuck with a damaged man and also blaming himself for the death of her father, who was killed in the same explosion, Evan chose to push Isla away. He refused to even see or speak to her and broke her heart at a time when she needed him the most. Isla never wanted to ...more

Someone set off a bomb that killed Isla's father and severely injured Evan. As his fiancée she was in danger. He thought that he was protecting Isla by shutting her out of his life. I was both amazed at Evan's sacrifice and shocked at his stupidity. She loved and needed him. Instead he rejected her and broke her heart. Isla is such a caring woman. I was impressed at her spirit and bravery. She's moving forward and rebuilding her life without the man she still loves. Unfortunately she has a ...more

I devoured this book in one sitting. After having read and loved book 1 in the Endgame Trilogy I knew I had to have book 2 ASAP, and in keeping with my impatient nature, I am now desperate for book 3. I’m loving the Bishop siblings so much. Evan Bishop suffered a great tragedy in his life, and thus pushed away the one person he truly loved, Isla McDonald, breaking her heart in the process. Two months down the line and he still can’t forgive himself, or bring himself

Y'all if you haven't already started this trilogy about the Bishop family you need to immediately. Each book could be read as a stand alone but I really recommend reading book one first. Let's just say I wish they're were more family members to write about!

Bishop's Queen the second book in Katie Reus's explosive Endgame Trilogy, was a tremendous read. That excited and enthralled me. Thanks to a storyline that was emotional, suspenseful, and sexy. And I genuinely enjoyed the two main characters Isla and Evan. Who it's fair to say are both battling their true feelings for each other, but for very different reasons. And I sincerely enjoyed how that all played out. Whilst they also handled the mounting threats Isla was facing. Which did get more

I was not a fan of this book.

I felt the reason why Evan stopped seeing Isla was flimsy at best. I really felt for Isla and I was hoping we where going to get a really good grovel here, but sadly............no!

Considering that they where so in love and engaged I was hoping for much more of an emotional pull from them than we were actually given. The break up just seemed so out of character for Evan

He could have so easily won her back and Evan's constantly saying it was his fault got on my nerves.

Evan thinks that being caught up in a blast has lost him everything. He lost his soone-to-be-business partner, his partner's son and almost more painful, he lost Isla. Isla was one of the reasons the business dealings were going so smoothly. She and Evan may have been business partners, but it was their all consuming love that kept them burning bright. But Evan could not deal with the guilt that it was his fault that Isla lost her father and brother and he pushed her away.

Isla is still lost
