    In looking at all the 5-star reviews, I?ll admit I hesitated whether to give 5 stars as well (partially because I don?t give 5-stars often), because it just doesn?t seem possible and could be viewed as skewed reviewing, I realize. And if I?m being completely forthcoming, Ollie ...

    ***4 Stars*** This was such a fun read! The banter! The slow burn! The sexy times once the burn explodes! Did I mention the banter?! The fake boyfriend aspect of the story was weak and very short lived, but I really don't care because it wasn't an integral part of the stor...

    Best one yet imho. Eden takes things to another level with the third entry in the Fake Boyfriend series and gives us a wonderfully snarky relationship between a sports journalist and a closeted ice hockey player. I loved pretty much everything about this narrative, from the smart an...

    I don?t think I?m one for sports books or books about athletes. This whole closet thing always bugs me. Why did I read this then? Because I liked the first book (or I was in a good mood when I read it), and I read all the raving reviews for this one, so I?d thought I?d go for i...

    ?Sweet Neil Patrick Harris in a harness?! From the fun start to treehouse sex to huge heart and sweetness, this book kept me laughing and loving all the way through! Meet Ollie Stromberg, a closeted hockey player just out of a long term relationship. He?s all tats and mu...

    She shoots, she scores! I really don?t read sport related theme books, but Eden Finley certainly deked me (see what I did there?) with this Series, I?m really enjoying it. The way Ollie guided his puck into Lennon?s goal to win against all odds to get their happy ending was a...

    5 Stars! My 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. ...

    Squee! I really love this series that revolves around the fake boyfriend theme and the author manage to make each one feels refreshing to read. Lennon is a sport journalist that we met previously and Ollie is a famous hockey player, who is not quite in the closet. Ollie is out to his f...

    4.5 Stars! Bumped my rating of book 1 up to 5 stars (rounded down to 4.5). Deke came in a close second to book 1 and was much improved from book 2. I really liked Ollie and Lennon. I love that there's no real big drama/break-up. Each book has a moment where one of the charac...

    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 steam. So, this tim...

    Wow, this feels like some big ole' Eden Finley book 1 dj vu, because once again... I 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...

    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. Huh. Ollie's family dynamics were memorable and well written, but the fake-boyfriend set up was kind of an awkward fit here. I didn't qui...

    I enjoyed the humor. There were times I laughed out loud. The romance itself however, was just ok for me. The sports angle was flash and go. There wasn't any "on the ice" action I could sink my teeth into. I'm digging for things to say but I'm drawing a blank. Maybe it's only that I...

    I love this series!!! That said, I cannot wait until this one comes out in audiobook!! So, fake boyfriend....one of my favorite tropes! Eden Finley rocked it again in this third book of the series. While this could be read as a standalone, couples from the first two books make so...

    3 stars I enjoyed the first half of the book. But then the second half bored me. Except whenever Jet was around. So I?m looking forward to that. I just... I don?t know... this one didn?t wow me. ...

    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 favorite...so far !! I had so much fun reading it ;) And most of it is because of Clark ... Ol...

    *4.5 stars* Sports romance and a fake relationship seem like two tropes that don't go together in m/m books, right? Well, in this book they did go together and they were perfect for each other! Ollie is a hockey player, he's out and pretty open about his sexuality with his huge f...

    3.75 stars I enjoyed this one, but book 2 is still my favorite. -It was sweet and fluffy - Funny -Hot -Ollie and Lennon are so adorable. Ollie's family is goals. Can't wait to read Talon and Miller, Jet and Soren books. ...

    El tercero de la serie y me ha gustado tanto, o incluso ms, que los anteriores. No es alta literatura, pero son libros muy entretenidos. Los protagonistas son monos, deportistas, sexys, buenas personas, inseguros, con defectos... y viven una historia de amor absolutamente adorable. E...

    4.5 stars rounded down! Gotta say, it had been so long since the last book that I forgot who Lennon was - but I remembered quickly. If anyone else forgets, he was the sports reporter who hit on Noah to try to get some dirt on Matt, and ended up making Noah mad, but he didn't say any...

    Absolutely loved Ollie and Lennon's story. Eden Finley portrayed this "coming out" storyline with compassion and understanding. Careers could have ended and livelihoods could have changed when Ollie's secret was known, but he took the high road and not only helped a friend in need but ...

    I always love when an author can take an old trope and create something new with it. Eden Finley is doing exactly that here. The scenario of an athlete falling for a sports reporter was refreshing and very intriguing. But it does not go down the avenue you might think. See, Ollie d...

    4 stars!! L?VED it!! ?. Ollie and Lennon are just MFEO!! ??? Ms Finley is fast becoming my go to author for escapist, funny and steamy reads. This book was no exception and despite my zero knowledge of NHL or hockey, Ollie just sucked me into his world.. his game, his la...
