Final Shot (Overtime #2) by V.L. Locey

Sometimes family is the light that leads you through the darkest parts of life.

Living the dream. That’s been Dan Arou-Kalinski’s life for the past ten years. That life hasn’t always been an easy one though. Dan has worked hard to get where he is and has faced some major obstacles on his road to success. It’s not always been a rose garden being married to Victor, but his love for his sometimes thorny husband has no bounds. His career has given him years of great success, memories, and championship rings. Yes, fate has been kind to Dan Arou-Kalinski for quite a long time. Looks like destiny is about to start calling in some markers.

The paybacks come due when a recurring health issue turns into a life or death situation and threatens to take him out of the game he loves permanently. Then there’s Victor’s son Jack, a proud and out nonbinary preteen who is living a daily nightmare in a small southern town. Juggling two major life issues is taking its toll on him, and just when he thinks he’s found the path out of the woods, Dan will face an unexpected and devastating loss that will require all three of the Kalinski men to pull together to help each other through the dark times.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

In Final Shot, VL Locey delights in the second book in her Overtime series. 

Do you love Dan, Vic, and Jack as much as I do? If so, you need to read this book NOW! These guys are so damn addicting; I wish I could read about their lives everyday. 

In this book, Dan's currently dealing with an injury, and Jack is the victim of a hate crime. And, as she's done in the past, the author tells a story of addiction. Not only do we see more of the effects from Vic's issues with alcohol, but now Dan is dealing with pain killers and the easy way in which they bring someone into the haunted world of addiction. 

I love these guys. They are real yet lovable, they are flawed yet intriguing, and they are inspirational in their continued support of their son Jack. Most of all, I admire them for the way they have Jack's best interests at heart. Always.

As usual, there's a lot going on for these men. They have many changes coming and a lot of discussions to have. But through thick and thin, their love is true, supportive, and understanding. And Jack, oh how I love Jack!

The ending of Final Shot is wonderful, and the changes for these men are impressively done. I love this VL Locey series, which is a continuation of men from Point Shot Trilogy and Coach's Challenge.
