Release Blitz - Face Offs & Cheap Shots

RELEASE BLITZ

FACE OFFS & CHEAP SHOTS by Eden Finley & Saxon James


Release Date: October 5, 2020

Cover Design: Story Styling Cover Designs

Genre: M/M College Sports Romance

 


SYNOPSIS

JACOBS
 
For the last three years, I’ve lived and breathed hockey with one goal: team captain.
There’s only one thing standing in my way. TJ Beckett.
Beck is irresponsible and immature, and I’ve hated him since the moment we met freshman year.
Yet, the coaches see something in him I obviously can’t, and they refuse to choose between us. The captain spot is going to a team vote, and the team thinks that what we need are a bunch of challenges to prove our worth. Challenges that have nothing to do with hockey. Challenges that are throwing me and Beck together.
And he’s still as infuriating as ever.


BECK
 
I have no idea why Christopher Jacobs hates me, and I can’t say I care. I like pushing his buttons, but the guy needs to loosen up. I’m going to win these stupid challenges easily and spend my senior year as hockey king on this campus. Tormenting Jacobs at the same time will just be a bonus.
Even if I’m getting confusing feelings toward him, I won’t let it hold me back.
When it comes to competing, I’m all in, and nothing will get between me and the W.

Face Offs & Cheap Shots (CU Hockey #2)Face Offs & Cheap Shots by Eden Finley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2 in the CU Hockey Series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this in order intended.

Jacobs & Beckett are both up for the position of Team Captain. The leaders believe in competitive motivation, apparently. Now the two men must spend more time together than they ever had in the past.

Is it inevitable that they would learn to appreciate one another in more than just the standard ways? Beckett normally just annoys Jacobs to the point of insanity. Now the attraction is making it hard to keep their secret, or their hands to themselves.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series. These characters are fun, serious, incredible, deep, and more. I found this story to be fascinating and honestly cannot wait for the next book in the series.

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 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.

Unlocked
Locked Heart - Eden Finley

Cash has finally achieved a lifelong dream.  One thing he notices now, is that the one person he wanted to be with him there when he experiences it, is not a part of his life anymore.  Should he reach out?

 

Sherlock AKA "Locke" is not sure if he should open a door that has been closed for a decade.  Will he survive if he spends time with Cash again?  He took a lot to get where he is in his life.  If only he could stop himself from feeling attracted........

 

This book has a strong character base.  I found myself wanting to know more about all of them.  Such a solid story and the pace was pleasantly fast but not too much.  I really liked it and could not put it down and then I was done. Would love to see these characters again.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Cover & Excerpt Reveal - Locked Heart

COVER & EXCERPT REVEAL
LOCKED HEART by Eden Finley


Release Date: September 14, 2020


Cover Design: Angsty G.
 

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance


SYNOPSIS

CASH

Ten years ago, I left my heart with a boy when I moved to LA to become a rock star.

Eight years ago, his online presence disappeared completely.

We made a pact. If I ever performed at Death Valley Music Festival, he’d come see me play.

Now, after a decade of paying my dues, I’ve been booked as a headliner.

Only question is, will he show up or do I need to face the possibility of letting him go forever?


**Locked Heart is a 27,000-word MM novella that is loosely connected to the Famous series but is a complete standalone.

EXCERPT


I couldn’t not come to his show. I had to at least see Cashton perform. 

I’ve seen countless songs and concert clips on YouTube, but nothing—nothing—beats the real thing.

The plan was to watch him, maybe catch his eye and see if there’s any spark of recognition, but I couldn’t get remotely close to the stage. 

I hadn’t decided if I was going to try to talk to him afterward or not. Or if I’d even be allowed.

I was fully waiting for security to tell me I’m shit out of luck, but apparently, they’d been told of my possible arrival by Cashton’s manager.

I huff.

Manager.

Cashton has come so far, and until the moment I saw him, until we came face-to-face, I didn’t know how I’d respond to being in his presence again.

Apparently my first response was to wrap myself around him.

“I’ve missed you,” I rumble in his ear.

He smells different. He feels different. More man and less … boy. 

Even though he was eighteen the last time I saw him and not much different to now.

He’s just … different. But I love it instead of despising it like I was worried I would.

He’s lived a long ten years, and I want to know every story, every adventure, but he’s frozen against me, and now it’s becoming abundantly clear that this is probably crossing a whole heap of lines.

I pull back but can’t help keeping my arms around him. “Cashton?”

His brown eyes blink up at me. His hair has gotten even longer than the last time I saw him, bringing back the eighties rock band look, and his tempting mouth I’ve missed so much is only inches away. Nope, closer than that.

Closer.

His tongue darts out, wetting his lip.

“Cashton …” I say again.

“Fuck it, we can catch up later.” He closes the small gap between us, pressing his mouth to mine.

Pressing, attaching, attacking … Same thing, right?

Damn, I remember everything about the way this man kisses. I remember his demanding tongue that liked to dominate my mouth, right up until I fought back and took control of it. Of everything.

Of his tongue, his mouth, his body …

The moan he lets out is deep and guttural, and worry about crossing lines is no longer at the forefront of my mind.

I’m still taller than him, but he used to be more muscular than me. Neither of us look like muscly gym rats, but I’ve at least filled out enough to match him in that area now. It makes me feel bigger than him, probably bigger than I actually am, but fitting myself against him, I surround him and hold him to me as if he was always mine to possess.

Cashton trembles in my arms the way he used to. The way he would when he wanted something but was too shy to ask for it.

“I want you to fuck me,” he demands.

Guess that shy thing is something he got over, then.

As much as I should pull away and slow this down, there’s no way that’s possible.

“Turn around.” My throat is scratchy and dry, putting an extra growl in my voice.

Like any time I’d told Cashton to do something in bed, he complies immediately.

Nostalgia settles over me.

I plaster my front to his back and push him toward the side of the tour bus.

His narrow hips feel amazing in my hands, and that round butt of his looks amazing framed in those tight pants. 

“I’ve fucking missed this ass.” I press forward, rubbing against him with my already hard and aching cock.

Cashton moans. “I’ve missed your dick.”

I find that hard to believe when I’m sure he’s had a buffet of cocks since the one and only time I fucked him, but now’s not the time to get into that.

I’m going to take his words at face value—that he’s missed my cock now it’s pressed against him.

I run my hand down the middle of his back, and he shudders under my touch. “You gonna take me like you did ten years ago? Want me to fuck you until you can’t shake your ass onstage like I saw today? You think this ass belongs to your fans?”

“Well, it hasn’t belonged to you in ten years.”

I try not to wince. Instead, I take on that commanding, dominant role I know he loved even back then. I want to show him that even though so long has passed, I’m not all that different. I still want him crumbling for me and coming apart from my touch, my mouth, my body. 

My fist tangles in his long hair, and he yelps in pain, but I don’t let up. “I have news for you. It has always belonged to me.”

Waiting
Power Plays & Straight A's - Eden Finley,Saxon James

Foster goes off to the new year of college with a focus in mind - Hockey.  Then his brother adds a twist.  He asks him to keep an eye on his best friend who will be attending the same institution of learning.  The same best friend who is close to his brother, whom he has avoided since he felt the pull of attraction.

 

Zach is not a people person.  He is however, a Foster person.  He has always wanted Foster. He gets single minded in his studies and can be a bit different.  Foster never makes him feel that way. 

 

This couple had me rooting for them from the very first chapter.  I enjoyed this read.  I found the characters very real and fascinating.  There was humor and heat, and a real connection.  I could not put this book down.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
