    Wow this feels like some big ole' Eden Finley book 1 déjà vu because once againI have nothing but LOVE LOVE LOVE for this story At 24 NHL player Ollie had zero problem with the fact that he was gay but his entire family took major issue with him not coming out yet as they didn't understand that the issue was way less about shame and way about holding onto a job in hockey that he truly lovedSo after one family dinner accidentally coming out to a stranger in the bathroom and an offer of assistance from said stranger Ollie found himself introducing his cough fake cough boyfriend Clark to his large supportive familyExcept Clark was actually Lennon a sports journalist and the very last person that Ollie would've chosen to come out to if he'd known he was putting his one big secret in jeopardy beforehandEvery little thing about this book was on point Nope not even a single niggle that I can think of This story had the perfect blend of feels insecurities angst steam and snarky banterPlus a reporter that looked like a blond Clark Kent falling for a Nordic God of a jock? Umm YES PLEASEI fell in love with Ollie's family immediately but could see from a mile off that the fake boyfriend lie was going to be a difficult one to escape and it was “ When are you going to tell them the truth about me?” he whispersI shrug “ At our engagement party?” The big secret that Clark was in fact Lennon came to a head when Ollie's brothers were talking shit about Ollie's situation and Lennon came to his defense which I adored because that was when the true bone deep feelings actually became apparent between the MC'sMatt's little brother Jet was an amazingly fun character too Talk about being a total little spitfire full of piss and vinegar “ I’m only here because of my roommate”Jet raises his hand “ That would be me He wanted to go home but I convinced him to stay for at least five drinks”“Two”“Okay seven”I’m learning really fast that negotiating with Jet is pointless The humor was a thing of beauty in this story especially when everyone and their grandmother kept calling Ollie pretty “ There’s that fuckin’ pretty word again I’m not pretty I’m wicked badass”“Of course you are baby” I pat his cheekEven though I’m being condescending he has this weird smile on his face as if I just told him he’s won the Hottest Man on Earth competition Which in all fairness if it was a thing he could totally win Along with Lennon's jealousy “ There you go calling me pretty again” he grumbles“ You are kinda pretty” Soren turns to us from the passenger seat with a charming smile showing off the dark scruff on his faceOllie chuckles at me “I think you’re growling Are you trying to growl? Fuck that’s adorable” And the sexy times which began with a somewhat daring blowjob taunt I didn’t know it was possible for someone to call me a pussy with just their eyes but Lennon pulls it off flawlessly Finley didn't disappoint in her avoidance of contrived drama and the ever dreaded Big Misunderstanding either as neither were anywhere to be found Praise the LawdThe slow burn in this story was exuisite but when the MC's realized and admitted their true feelings it felt believable and pretty damn sublime Ugh I sound like a puck bunny I gasp I’m Ollie’s puck bunny I chuckle at myself because even though I’m joking I don’t actually mind the sound of that The book ends with a strong HFN headed towards an HEA complete with a few personal sacrifices willingly offered up once what was truly important blessedly made its way to the forefront of the MC's mindsSo with all that said this story gets ALL 5 STARS from me and I'm dying to read the last two books in the series My ARC copy of the book was provided by the author in exchange for a fair unbiased reviewSee All My Latest Reads Review uick Links

    5 StarsMy favorite in the series thus far Their meeting was unconventional and by chance Their arrangement was only supposed to last for one meal They were sure they wouldn't see each other again But fate had other plans for this hockey player and this sports journalist Lennon is a sports reporter for a magazine who was recently reporting on football until a few papers he wrote on a certain hockey player got him transferred to writing for the sport he never knew much about Meeting Ollie that one night sparked his interest in not only the player but the sport he was playing Lennon is attracted to Ollie and has a thing for jocks Lennon has a past with these types of guys The jock closeted types and he has sworn to stay away from those kinds of relationships in the future But then there is Ollie He's different if not the same Lennon can't help the pull and need to help this sweet guy out Even if he knows it will only end in heartbreak for himOllie lives and breathes hockey and he has sacrificed a lot in his life to play the game and make it his career Recently one of those sacrifices was his relationship with his long time boyfriend Beau Beau wanted to be important enough to Ollie for him to come out Ollie wanted Beau to realize that coming out would make him the only out hockey player and he didn't want to be the poster gay boy for the sport He has pressure from his family too who believes he'll only truly be happy with who he is if he's out and proud But Ollie is proud and is out to the people that are important to him He just isn't ready to be out in his job until he's made it further in his career especially now that he's been traded and is still trying to find his footing on his new team Lennon and Ollie play it fake for his family to get them off his back They didn't think they'd see each other again but with Lennon now reporting on hockey it was just a matter of time before they ran into each other again Only when they do things don't go so great because things come up that didn't when they first met Like Lennon's real name Or the fact that he's a sports reporter who has been the one recently reporting on Ollie who hasn't taken to kind on what Lennon has been reporting on him Ollie is angry Lennon is confused on what he could possibly be mad about because he doesn't believe what he's written has put Ollie in a bad light But soon things get even complicated when Lennon runs into Ollie's parents again and they are still under the impression that he and Ollie are still in a relationship What follows this is a sweet fake relationship that soon turns serious when real feelings start to come into play I really loved this one This author really knows how to keep the trope of fake relationships fresh and entertaining I love this trope and gobble up every book that comes out in this series I can't wait for the next one Happy reading dolls xx I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

    I have loved all the books in this series though I have to say that they seem to get better and better with each book So it shouldn't be surprising that this one is definitely my favoriteso far I had so much fun reading it ; And most of it is because of Clark Ollie is a hockey player in the NHL He's gay he's proud but he isn't fully out The only people who know are his close family and they support him 200 % It's the 200 instead of a 100 that seems to be the problem here They are a bit too pushy when it comes to him coming out They feel he can only be happy if he shouts it from the rooftopsbut Ollie isn't ready for the conseuences of being the only gay player in the NHLHe shares his grievances with a strangerin the bathroom of a restaurant while out with the family Not really knowing who he just laid everything out forLennon feels bad for Ollie Being a sports reporter and being gay himself he knows all about how hard it is coming out in their world He wants to help Ollie out by pretending to be his new boyfriend Maybe if the fam sees he is happy they will leave him beAnd so it beginsI had an awesome time reading this book It was funny and snarky and a high Lennon is the best thing ever It was also sweet and very HOTI want to give some major credit here to Ollie's family They were great and half the fun I had came from them ; My whole family has been overprotective of me since my mom outed me to myself when I was fifteen There was some drama with the ex boyfriend who I really didn't care for What a doucheIt wasn't a very angsty read I would definitely call this a feel good book Which shows exactly how I felt when I finished itI can't wait to see what's next and I am dying to read Jet's story because I have a little crush going onI highly recommend this series ;  My reviews are posted on DirtyBooksObsession Follow Us on➦

    I liked Deke by new to me author Eden Finley but the longer I sat on my review the fewer positive things I could come up with about the story HuhOllie's family dynamics were memorable and well written but the fake boyfriend set up was kind of an awkward fit here I didn't uite get it and the romance felt a bit abrupt and thrown together from that point forward I love love love hockey romances but we barely get any hockey details here It was a hockey romance in name only and though there are talks about teammates team dynamics and trades and the like there wasn't any playing action which I missed The book felt like the start of a romance rather than the whole deal There were clandestine meet ups and a bunch of sex but the love love love wasn't developed enough for me The dialogue and humor were a bright spot but though I enjoyed it it wasn't a stand out in my book Copy provided in exchange for an honest reviewgoodreads|instagram|twitter|blog

    ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱Cute But Not Awesome⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ The third book in the series centers around the winger in the NHL hockey for the Dragons Ollie Strömberg 24 and sports journalistreporter who works for Sporting Health Magazine Lennon ‘Clark’ Hawkins how old? The two meet when Ollie is hiding from his family in the bathroom Lennon agrees to pretend to be his boyfriend so Ollie's family will back off And then they'll never see each other again Or so they thought Before any of them can start tormenting this guy who’s doing me a favor I cut them all off“Guys this is ” Fuck I didn’t even ask him his name and all I can think about is how much he looks like a blond Superman “Clark”I knew this was a bad idea for a reason Pulling it off is going to take than saying This is my boyfriend so now you can stop acting like dicksHe glances in my direction and I want to apologize for panicking but what kind of boyfriend doesn’t know his partner’s name?“And who is Clark?” Ma asks giving him the same stare down she gave Amanda when Nic first brought her home“He’s uh—” My voice cracks like it did when I was twelve years old and I have to clear my throat “This is my boyfriend” 6 months later Ollie finds out the truth of who ‘Clark’ is; none other than the journalist who keeps ranting about his playing The two start a friendship that soon leads to but it can't become because Ollie is still in the closet in the sports world Overall the book wasn't all that bad It was cute and had charm to it but just like the other books in the series it's not all that and something at least for me is missing Just can't put my finger to it I do have to say however that I liked that the ‘twist’ isn't Ollie finding out who Clark really is but rather it's about coming out I’m only in sports journalism and the amount of shit I get from coworkers annoys the crap out of me Like them saying I should be writing fashion instead of sports because you know the fashion and gay gene are one and the same It’s mainly said in jest but they don’t understand how it’s insensitive and inappropriate—probably because they’ve never had to deal with being put in a box and told that’s where they belong uotes From Bookview spoiler Noah remains with a knowing look on his face “You didn’t tell him who you were did you?”I adjust my glasses which don’t need adjusting and don’t answer I usually wear contacts but I ran out and haven’t had a chance to order since coming to New York so I’m all self conscious about being my nerdy self again“You’d think you would’ve learned your lesson after me” Noah says “I would’ve kicked your ass if Damon let me”When I met Noah in a bar I hit on him and tried to get a scoop about his now husband It backfired but it’s how we became friends “We fought hard to get you because you’re one of the best wingers in the league Or you could be if you’d drop your hesitance out there Boston didn’t want to let you go We knew how desperate they were for Malik and we wanted the best in return”“Should’ve tried for Novak then” I mumble“So you’re saying your stats are only because of Tommy Novak?”“No” I say way too uickly Admitting that would be like saying Lennon’s article made good points “Tommy and I made a great team is all and I still don’t know any of the guys here yet but I promise to make of an effort Kessler said something about hanging out or whatever I’ll push harder I’ll—”Coach holds up his hand “Your position’s not in danger I asked you in here to see if there’s anything I can do to help if something’s going on because you’re not the same kid on the ice here that you were in Boston”He’s right and I know I need to up my game“I’ll find a way to do better” What’s worse is I’m a sports journalist who didn’t recognize Ollie Strömberg immediately Although in my defense I mainly cover football and baseball Kevin does hockeyWhile I don’t know much about the sport I do know Ollie and his teammate Tommy Novak are an unstoppable force but Novak gets all the credit for it because he’s usually the one sealing the deal and getting the puck in the netIf Ollie had any idea who I was he wouldn’t only be nauseated but in full on freak out mode He outed himself to me and no fucking way would I ever run that story but he doesn’t know that I work with the bloodsucking journalists we’re notorious for being but I’m not like that most of the time The one time I tried being sneaky to get a story it blew up in spectacular fashion when Matt Jackson’s boyfriend tried to punch me out It doesn’t help that bloodsucking reporters like Lennon Hawkins write slanderous articles in reputable sports magazines that the only reason my stats were so good last year was because of TommyWhat the hell kind of name is Lennon anyway? It’s probably an alias to hide behind so he can be candidly asshole y about the fact he could never make it in sportsI’d like to see you chase around a puck while wearing skates assholeIt wouldn’t surprise me if I found out Lennon Hawkins is a washed up has been in the sporting world but probably in a sport like baseball or football I’ve pretty much stalked the man online within an inch of breaching privacy laws and up until recently he only reported on football and baseball hide spoiler

    Another win for me from Eden Finley Third in her series “Fake Boyfriend” it can be read as a standalone but I would suggest to read the whole series if you enjoy romances set up in the sport world with a low level of angst but a high amount of banter and steamSo this time we get the story of Ollie a hockey player and Clark aka Lennon a sport journalistOllie breaths hockey and is unwilling to risk his career by outing himself apart from within his family Said family is on his back about his break up with his long time boyfriend so when a guy he has just met agrees to play “new boyfriend” during a family dinner Ollie jumped on the occasion to get some rest from the familial pressure Ollie even finds funny to name his partner in crime “Clark” Little does he know how close to the truth he isYep you can guess the link between Clark and Lennon the sport journalist 😉From there it’s a series of encounters between Ollie and Lennon over months of the Hockey season A great recipe with a little bit of anger a tad of friendly meddling a big portion of sparks and an even bigger portion of banter and humor nicely served on a “slow burn” platter decorated with delicious “cock blocking” moments by a waitress going at a perfect writing paceAs the reader who put this book in my radar wrote ” A reporter that looked like a blond Clark Kent falling for a Nordic God of a jock? Yumm YES PLEASE” And Yumm I dida LOT ARC of “Deke” was generously provided by the authorpublisher in exchange for an honest review

    45 starsSports romance and a fake relationship seem like two tropes that don't go together in mm books right? Well in this book they did go together and they were perfect for each otherOllie is a hockey player he's out and pretty open about his sexuality with his huge family and some close friends but he's still closeted when it comes to the rest of the world His family is super supportive and they are all pushing for him to come out to the point of Ollie feeling pressured about it With his relationship with his childhood sweetheart over his family won't let up about him coming out and winning his ex backLennon is a nerdy sports journalist that loves his job When he meets Ollie under some awkward circumstances they hit it off and he agrees to play his boyfriend for one evening so Ollie's family would stop pressuring him They don't have time to make proper introductions so Lennon finds himself being refered to as ClarkFast forward six months a trade for Ollie a few articles and a reassignment for Lennon and they meet again only this time Lennon's true name is revealed and Ollie storms outThe whole story was very captivating With the fake relationship the journalist and the closeted athlete hitting it off the ex making an appearance the large and fun Stromberg clan and a collection of good friends I didn't even notice the book coming to an endThere are a lot of funny moments that made me laugh out loud thankfully when no one else was around The banter between Ollie and Lennon was great and when drunk Lennon couldn't think anything without also saying it out loud made for some hilarious momentsThe meeting with Ollie's ex was very interesting to see They had a lot of history together and it showed immediately but I liked how they behaved to each other It's difficult to move on after so many years together and I liked that there was no evil ex just someone that Ollie wasn't meant to be with but still cared about I liked how civil they both were even if a little sad that they were no longer togetherThis book deserves a big bright star for there not being a last minute break up make up scramble to create drama There was no need for that because the plot was enough by itself to keep the reader's attentionThere was a press conference somewhere near the end and now you're all thinking a press conference at an mm sports romance book? what else is new but you'll never guess how that wentThe fourth book of the series is going to be about Talon and Miller there won't be a fake boyfriend trope and I can't wait to get my hands on that one An ARC of this book was kindly provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you
