I love this series! The characters are amazing, and each book is unique with both storyline and MCs.
This book focuses on Ollie and Lennon who we have met briefly in the previous books. The chemistry between them is off the charts hot, but the reality of who the other is causes a few issues for them.
I loved the focus on Ollie's family - how they were so incredibly supportive and accepting of him being gay, but also tried too hard to push him into outing himself when he was in an industry that hadn't shown itself to be accepting. In an effort to avoid limiting his career, he had chosen to remain closeted, something his family didn't understand and mistook for him being ashamed. It wasn't until he met Lennox that he finally found someone that truly understood.
Their story was fun, heartfelt and enjoyable to read. I loved that the characters from the previous books all still play a part, some of them more predominant than others (like Damon who is Ollie's agent).
This is a book, and a series, that I would recommend, and I can't wait to read the next books.
I am soooo in LOVE with this series! I am hooked and loving it all.
I absolutely loved reading Lennon and Ollie’s story, they are soo good together. I loved the instant connection they seemed to have but it wasn’t insta love, I thought it was well written how they fell in love.
Lennon had me snickering and laughing out loud so much with his witty/sarcastic nerdy remarks. Ollie, OMG Ollie his is just perfect and his crazy family were hilarious.
I loved every moment of this story and wish it didn’t have to end, I want more Lennon and Ollie.
Ollie and Lennon are officially my favorites so far, sorry Damon and Maddox. I love a good fake boyfriend 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
I love love LOVED this book! This book is quite different to the other books in the series and was a slower burn romance, and I thought it was perfect in every way! I really can not fault this book at all. There is an instant connection with the characters as they try to navigate how they feel for each other. This book is just amazing, and that cover!!! My favourite of the series so far for sure!
Lennon is a sports journalist. This makes him #1 enemy to jocks everywhere. We met Lennon in book 2 with Noah and Matt. Lennon speaks his mind, and he sticks up for things he believes in. He is a nerdy type of guy but that just adds to his appeal.
Ollie is a hockey star. He is just the sweetest guy, but he also has a broody side that comes out every now and then. His life is hockey but he is also harbouring a secret that he is too afraid to let out! And the piercings and tattoos are just.......HOT!
I love these two characters together, and this book just makes me giddy! It’s sweet, it is inspirational to those in the same situations. I just loved every second of reading this book. I love how the author makes every character feel so real to me. They all have their individual personalities which I just love. I also can not wait until the next couple of books come out because I just know they are going to be amazing!! If you love MM romances, I recommend giving this book and book series a go!
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 fake boyfriend 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 fake boyfriend 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 fake boyfriend 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 fake boyfriend 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 fake boyfriend 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
