OllieWord of advice: don’t come out to random guys in public restrooms. Even if they’re charming and adorably nerdy and offer to help. My family believe I can’t be happy if I’m not out to the world. I have a bitter ex-boyfriend and an unstable NHL career to show for it. A fake boyfriend seems like an easy and quick solution to get my family off my back, and this guy is volunteering. I take him up on it without asking his name. I really should’ve asked for his name.
Word of advice: learn how to introduce yourself properly. In my defense, I don’t recognize Ollie Strömberg right away. I cover football, not hockey. I’m not supposed to see him again, and he’s never supposed to find out I’m a reporter. That all changes when my editor reassigns me. It’s a lesson I should’ve learned by now. Nothing’s changed since high school. Jocks still hate nerds. But even worse, athletes hate journalists. Especially ones who know their secret.
Ok, if you’re like me and a fan of the series, you’ll be delighted with this one. The first one will always be a top fave (my GR review here). The second one was good, but I thought not as good as the first one (my GR review here), and this one, although it won’t top the first, is better than the 2nd. Having said all that, if you haven’t read the first 2, it’s ok, this is a standalone.
They had an interesting start, on top of practically sitting on opposite side of fence, the athlete and the sports journalist. Ollie and his family are sweet people. I get his reticence about coming out publicly. I get why Lennon just wanted what’s best for him. Lennon, at first, may not have enough to stand out outside of his name, but I’ve grown to really like him. I love his humor. I get why Ollie was willing to do things for him.
One thing that I think that Eden does well are the way her characters interact with each other and those around them. I thoroughly enjoy the naturalness and the humor she injects into it. So, while the storylines are not unique, she makes the characters’ personalities shine.
It’s now established in my head that I’m definitely a fan. Which is why I’m glad the series is continuing even though they won’t be about fake relationships anymore. Hello, how can I not be excited. First, Talon! Then, Jet, yessss!!!

About the Author
Eden Finley is an Amazon bestselling author who writes steamy contemporary romances that are full of snark and light-hearted fluff.She doesn’t take anything too seriously and lives to create an escape from real life for her readers. The ideas always begin with a wackadoodle premise, and she does her best to turn them into romances with heart. With a short attention span that rivals her five-year-old son's, she writes multiple different pairings: MM, MMF, and MF. She's also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don't make sense to anyone else.
