Trick Play (Fake Boyfriend, #2) by Eden Finley 4 Star Review!
Trick Play - Eden Finley

Matt:

Want to know the fastest way to get screwed out of a football career? Get photographed in a compromising position in a gay bar. Yep, welcome to my life. 

My agent says he can fix my image. He wants me to become the poster boy for gay football players. Me? I just want back on the field. I’ll do anything to play for the NFL again, even pretend to have a steady boyfriend. If only my fake boyfriend wasn’t Noah Huntington III—the most arrogant, entitled rich guy in the world.

Noah:

Pretend to be Matt Jackson’s boyfriend, my best friend said. It’ll be fun, he said. What Damon neglected to mention is Matt is surly and bitter. Being his boyfriend is a job in itself. From his paranoia over being constantly photographed to his aversion to PDA, being with Matt isn’t the care-free fake relationship I expected when I signed on to do this. 

It’s supposed to be a win-win. I get to stick it to my politician dad who thinks no one is good enough for the Huntington name, and Matt’s reputation of being the bad boy of football dies.

What I don’t expect is to start caring for the guy. That’s not part of the plan. Then again, neither is fooling around with him. 

Oops.

 

Review

 

My love of the fake relationship theme is large and Eden Finley does it so so well.

This book is a delight with this theme between very opposites Noah and Matt. They lust and combust and then really get to know the more complicated people they are.

We get great secondary characters and good sports romance. 

There are all kinds of little twists that make this a solid and re readable romance that is sure to delight. 

Can't wait for the next one!

Trick Play (Fake Boyfriend, #2)Trick Play by Eden Finley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Fake Boyfriend series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Matt has had some changes recently. He was outed against his will, possibly lost his job, and met someone that he could really care about. Little did he know how much in common he would have with Noah.

Noah is doing Matt a favor. Pretending to be in a relationship with him to further his career. Since it helps with his own agenda, it works out. Now if they can both shake off the pain of the past, this could really be a beginning of a whole new future.

This series is so amazing! I loved this book, and found the characters very easy to relate to. There was heat, humor, sarcasm, and was such a joy to read. I cannot wait for the next book in this great series.

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.

Trick Play (Alison Hendricks)
Trick Play (Eastshore Tigers #3) - Alison Hendricks
3.75 stars rounded up

Sometimes a book fits what I want to read / present mood. To be perfectly honest, in any other day, this might fall in my 3.5* rating category. But I read this one after not being too satisfied with my last book. So by comparison, this wins my heart because I enjoyed it a whole lot.

At first I was a bit ambivalent with the idea of fake-relationship for the sake of giving the team the Rainbow identity. I LOVE friends-to-lovers trope but I tend to strongly dislike fake-relationship for marketing/promo purpose. So I wasn't sure whether I was going to completely like this book.

Well ... I ended up loving Luke and Brandon so much. This is one of the examples where the friends-to-lovers theme was executed pretty well. Sure, there was angst (since Brandon has been pretty much in love with Luke for years) but it was the right amount. I even enjoyed their first sexy time and devoured the scene without skimming!!

My biggest problem was probably Luke's father. I mean I was happy that he didn't end up kicking out his son when Luke admit that he was bisexual and involved with Brandon. But his change of heart didn't ring true based on his attitude prior to the heart-to-heart talk. I wasn't completely convinced with that scene to be honest.

But the epilogue was sweet and brought a HUGE smile to my face. Yep, this one was a winner.
