Ollie and Lennon are officially my favorites so far, sorry Damon and Maddox. I love a good fakeboyfriend trope, and this was lovely and with love angst to go with it. I loved how supportive Ollie's family were, even if they didn't truly understand his issue till Lennon stood up to them and pointed it out. Lennon and Jet's friendship was adorable and I'm so freaking excited about his book, he was like an excited little puppy and the "negotiating" between the two was very amusing. The story was cute, funny and of course sexy, the low angst was great, there was an ex (Ash) who I didn't particularly like but he didn't actually cause the issues which was a nice change. The little cameos of Matt and Noah along with Damon and Maddox was cool and love how we still get the little i sights into how they are all going. Even though this is a standalone, I would highly recommended reading both Fake Out and Trick Play as they are all interconnected with the couple's appearing and other side characters popping in (Talon and Miller 😉). I can't wait for the next two books especially Jet and his guy who we meet in Deke. Thank you Eden for giving us this lovely story of Ollie and Lennon .
I loved the first 2 books in this series and this one just made me fall in love with series even more. Lennon and his “Neil Patrick Harris one liners” and Ollie and his crazy family not to mention all the my favourite characters from the previous 2 books with a special mention for Jet whose scene with Ollie in the DJ Box cracked me up for some reason - his “no filter” way of approaching life had me cackling on many occasions (cheeky rockstar that he is) - it just all comes together in a warm hearted, extremely funny but loveable story. Eden has done a seriously great job with this one. Can’t wait for Talon’s story :-) #lovedit
Sweet Neil Patrick Harris in a harness this author rocks!!!!! (And when you read this book you will get my drift) ❤️❤️ I know everyone is super keen for Talon and Jet, but you will not be disappointed with Ollie and Lennon!! 🧡🧡 Can a hockey player and a journalist who meet in a public bathroom get a HEA? 💛💛 When Lennon stumbles into the restroom, he doesn’t know that the proposition of being someone’s fakeboyfriend will lead to the craziness that unfolds in the future... 💚💚 Ollie isn’t out, but his family knows and accepts him. And when the nerdy Lennon comes along can he really fake his way and stay hidden from the media?? 💙💙 It’s a story of coming out to the world and the struggles that follow, it’s about trust and standing up for people you love! 💜💜 Deke will have you giggling like you’ve just had a smoke, there will be a few awww’s thrown in and boy these guys can get hot too 🔥🔥
Eden Finley and her fakeboyfriend series does not disappoint!!!!!! If you haven’t started the series make sure you one click now!!!!!! These books are nothing but perfection in words!!!!!
Eden does it again in this awesome fakeboyfriend pairing!!
I found this book full of humour, sass, and love! Following on in the world Eden has created, this book explores the relationship between closeted Hockey star, Ollie and sports journalist, Lennon. The dynamics between these two is awesome! From tension filled heat to snark, sass, and sarcasm, to humour and heartbreak, Eden delivers it all!! I’d say this is the funniest installment yet and the range of emotions translated in Eden’s writing will give you all the feels!! I have to say the families, and side characters (Jet I’m looking at you) add to this story and complement the characters so well! I love the bromance between Lennon and Jet and I really look forward to more of Jet, as he grows and finds his own love story (cue Soren)
I’m so glad Eden has decided to write Talon and Miller’s and Jet’s story! I love these awesome characters and can't wait for the story!
It took me awhile to get into this book - Ollie is bitter and whiny right from the beginning, while Lennon, for a guy who makes his living out of words, is seriously dense as to the impact they can have, and how they could be interpreted. However, I persevered and it was well worth the effort. These men seriously spark together. They are both complex and damaged, but they can’t resist the pull of the other. This was a one sitting read for me, I started in the morning and did not stop. Ollie’s overly enthusiastic family are a wonderful backdrop to the story, and give depth to his attitude. While Lennon is staunchly loyal almost in spite of himself. The story delivers fakeboyfriend and a variation on enemies to lovers, and keeps the tension ratcheting, and the engagement high. There is snark, drama, and feelings galore. Very well done, this author just keeps hittin her stride.
Now I have thoroughly enjoyed the fakeboyfriend stories so far and love how they all intermingle with each other, as I love catching up on previous characters. I must admit that Ollie and Lennon just became my favourites. I seriously loved how Ollie actually believes himself that he is NOT in a Fake relationship. I loved the super hot insta chemistry between these two and the fact that despite the issues they face between themselves they manage to be grown ups and work past it. Adorable story with two hot guys and some super hot MM lovin. What more do you need. I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review
I loved this, I think Ollie and Lennon have become my new favourites in this series. Being closeted had already cost Ollie one relationship. What began as a fakeboyfriend scene to get his family off his back, turned into a love / hate , back and forth relationship between Ollie and Lennon. Wonder fully written, with drama and angst of coming out. Looking forward to next book.
Loved Ollie and Lennon. This is a fantastic addition to the FakeBoyfriend series. Slow(er) burn, but amazing chemistry between the two MC’s. A coming out story that is so well written. Ollie and Lennon have their banter down pat from the start then throw in Noah and Matt as well as Ollie’s intrusive but hilarious family and of course Jet, Eden Finley has given this book everything and you won’t be sorry you picked it up.
Deke has a few of my favourite troupes. * fakeboyfriends * closeted sport star Eden Finley has cornered the market on FakeBoyfriends. Deke is very well written and very entertaining and another great addition to the series. It's sexy and full of humour!!! Although it's the 3rd book in the series, it can definitely be read as a standalone.
This is the third book in the fakeboyfriend series and my favourite of all. Hello hockey players! Meeting in a bathroom and an accidental come on, leads us down Ollie and Lennons path from a chance meeting, which leads to Lennon *cough* Clark offering to be Ollie's fakeboyfriend to get his family off his back. Fate has other ideas, Ollie and Lennon will have you feeling all their emotions right along with them. From their attraction, anger and doubts right through to their love and enjoying all the hilarious moments (treehouse) and banter in between. Well done on another fabulously written book Eden.
