Thrilling, suspenseful, intriguing and romantic!

This book has a terrific story which was everything I could have hoped for. It held my interest throughout the entire book, and contained a bit of a more than a few genres. Such as erotic romance, adventure, thriller, romantic suspense, mystery and intrigue. The Hero was definitely a hot alpha male, but despite kidnapping the heroine, he is a good guy just doing his best in awful circumstances.

The Hero is Ellis Bishop, the first two books in this s

Looks like I’m the odd one out here but for me Bishop’s Endgame was a disappointing ending to a series that did kick-off with promise. Ellis and Arianna just didn’t do it for me, granted they got their HEA and the ongoing story was wrapped up, however on the whole this series sadly fell into the abyss with each book.

It doesn’t mean that I won’t read more from Katie Reus, when she gets it right she does indeed get it right, but this was clearly not the series for me.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Ellis and Arianna's story was so good! Ellis is everything I love in a hero. He's super protective and when his feelings for Arianna started to grow, he didn't push her away. He kidnaps her in the beginning because he thinks she is part of her stepfathers organization. The fact that he felt so bad when he realized she was innocent just shows his good character.

Arianna is a third grade school teacher who happens to be a recovering alcoholic with several traumatic events in her past. She's the sw

In the last part of this series neither the main characters, nor their relationship were adequately developed. It was indeed romantic, yet too much that the suspense had a second role.

An enjoyable and easy to read finish to the Endgame Trilogy, Bishops Endgame finally puts on the run, and trying to clear his name; Ellis Bishop front and centre.

We have known about Ellis since the start of the series, his brother and sister have both been through the wringer in order to get their HEA’s, Ellis meanwhile has been in hiding and trying to get the evidence together to clear his name, as at this point everyone, apart from those that know him think he ki

Finally...the third book on this trilogy. It’s seems like I’ve been waiting ages for this. But I’m nothing if not patient lol.

We’ve had snippets of Ellis throughout the other two books. But this is where we find out what really happened.

Framed for a murder he didn’t commit. Ellis has been months hiding and trying to clear his name. With no other option available he kidnaps Arianna Stavish. Her stepfather is Vitaly Rodin the crime boss responsible for the murder in question.

Great conclusion to this trilogy. Loved Ellis and Arianna's relationship. They were a slow burn, and neither one of them worked to hard to avoid it. It was great to Ellis finally clear his name and reunite with his family. Her family was nasty.

Bishop’s Endgame by Katie Reus

Last book in the Endgame trilogy. Romantic suspense. Can be read as a stand-alone but characters from the first two have integral parts in this story.
Ellis (the third sibling in the trilogy) has been setup. He is accused of killing his best friend by his former boss even though there is video of a drug kingpin shooting the gun. Ellis will do whatever he has to in clearing his name. Which includes kidnapping Arianna for leverage.

Fast moving, suspenseful and immediat
When it turns out that the mafia princess that Ellis Bishop has kidnapped was really just an elementary school teacher, clearing his tainted name becomes a lot more interesting and exciting.

'Bishop's Endgame' is classic Katie Reus at her suspense-storytelling best, or at the very least, it's familiar  and safe ground especially if you're well-acquainted with the RS series she normally produces. The story is so much more than the blurb of course and I definitely loved the element of the unknown t

Ellis Bishop was working undercover when he saw his best friend murdered by a dangerous crime boss. Ellis managed to escape with pictures showing the murderer in the act. What he didn't know was that his boss was on the mob boss's payroll. Now he's on the run, his proof is gone and he's accused of murder. However, Ellis has a plan. He'll prove that Vitaly Rodin executed Carter and he'll use Vitaly's stepdaughter to accomplish his revenge. I was hooked. I couldn't believe Ellis could accomplish h ...more

Framed for a murder he didn’t commit, Ellis Bishop has been in hiding since the start of the Endgame trilogy, working quietly behind the scenes to clear his name. Needless to say, Ellis’ story has been building since the start and I had high expectations for him! And while I didn’t expect Ellis to make the decision to kidnap Arianna under the ridiculous set of circumstances he did, I’ll be darned if it didn’t work out fantastically well!

I really enjoyed Ellis and Arianna’s interactions
Ellis spent years working undercover for the DEA but when his partner and best friend is killed by a mob boss Ellis finds himself set up for the murder and has to go into hiding. He's been trying to clear his name for months but knowing at least one dirty DEA agent helped set him up he has very few people he can turn to for help. All of his leads bring him to Ariana, the step-daughter of the mob boss who murdered his friend and with bank accounts in her name full of drug money she's in this mess ...more

The final installment in this sizzling romantic series was explosive and full of intriguing elements. From the moment that Ellis was mentioned in the first book I simply wanted that mystery solved and all of the answers as to who he was and why he left. Ellis exuded serious control and restraint. At first I didn't know how to feel about his meet up with Arianna. The secrets and danger ,the fear and distrust. Well this definitely wasn't your average meet cute. No this was raw and viscous.

I've given this a B- at AAR, so that's 3.5 stars rounded up.

After the rather disappointing Bishop's Queen, the middle instalment of Katie Reus' Engame Trilogy, I confess I was on the fence as to whether I was going to finish the series.  But in the end, I decided to read Bishop’s Endgame because I was still interested in finding out what happened to the third Bishop sibling Ellis, a former DEA agent who went on the run after he was accused of murdering his partner.  The plot is suspenseful and t
Great read and an end to the Bishop's trilogy. Ellis is finally able to clear his name with some help from Adrianna. Filled with action ,suspense, hot love making and a family coming to help out when their brother is in trouble, mak4s for a fantastic read. 4 solid stars***

P.S. I sure hope that FBI agent Georgina gets a story!

If your endgame of a romantic tale is a very steamy read featuring a good guy hero getting the girl and his name cleared after being set up, this book may be just what you are looking for. As usual, this author gives us a main couple we can’t help but root for as they get to know each other emotionally and physically, as they stumble into love. With Arianna, mainly because she’s open to do the right thing and doesn’t put her head in the sand. Once she’s got your back, it’s for good, folks. Ellis ...more

Reus' Endgame #3 can be read as a standalone. Ellis has to clear his name and the only way to do that is to kidnap the evil Crime Boss' step daughter Arianna. But as the pages turn, its Ellis who has to save Arianna from her evil step father. Great romance. "A copy of this book was provided by KR Press, LLC via Netgalley with no requirements for a review.

Wow! This narrating duo did an excellent job of taking what was already an amazing read and bringing it to life in a richer, fuller way. I loved reading this one but holy heck...listening to Mr. Kafer and Mr. Costa performance took this book to a whole new level!

Wow! What an amazingly original storyline filled with lots of action, danger and plenty of steam!

I really enjoyed Bishop's Endgame by Katie Reus.

I enjoyed the storyline, it was well paced, entertaining from start to end and I loved watching Ellis and Arianna get their much deserved happily ever after.

Overall, Bishop's Endgame is a good read and a great way to bring the Endgame Trilogy series to a close.

I'm excited to hear Ellis story finally. We didn't know what happened why he's on the run and now we the whole picture. This one started as a kidnapping gone wrong and a case of mistaken identity. Arianna and Ellis didn't get off to a great start, it was an unusual situation for sure. But Arrianna has a smart ass way about her that made it fun. Ellis didn't make for a great kidnapper either but he was great when he found his sources were wrong about Arriana.

The final book in the Endgame Trilogy is here! Bishop's Endgame by Katie Reus is Ellis' story and one I anticipated very much since the moment we found out that Ellis is wanted for something he didn't do in Bishop's Knight. As it was expected this is the most action-filled book of the three and the one with the most suspense.

I was very satisfied with this book and the way the events unfolded so giving it 5 stars is not a hardship. The blurb is not hiding from the reader the way our couple has i

Endgame Trilogy #3

The finale of the series finds Ellis looking to clear his name after months on the run. The prologue explains why he has been in hiding. The next scene is his kidnapping of a woman he believes will be the key to clearing his name. There is tension between them, as expected, along with a healthy dose of fear. Soon, though, Ellis proves to Arianna that he is not the evil person she thought he was. The rest of the story tells of how they go about clea

What a way to end a trilogy! I will absolutely miss each of these characters, and I loved some we already knew that showed up. Ellis has been in the background, on the run, throughout both Evie and Evan’s books. This book included all the action, suspense and answers we have been patiently wanting. Ellis and Arianna both have things in their past that have led to the place they are in their lives now. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat, holding your breath and keeping your

Terrific Book!

What a wonderful surprise to finally get Ellis moving forward in all the right directions. Having been on the run and hiding to save his skin in the first two books we finally get to know him. Arianna a school teacher and a pawn in her family's game is the perfect match. Brilliant ending of the series.
