Publisher's Summary

Miller:

When Talon left to play pro ball six years ago, the hole in my chest confused me. I focused my heartache into making my own NFL dreams come true, and by the time I was drafted, the longing I had for my best friend was buried deep. Now, he wants everything to be like it was in college, but we can't have threesomes and be reckless like we once were. The media storm would be enough to break both our careers. That's not my biggest concern, though. The torch I had for him burns brighter after so long apart, and there's nothing I can do about it. Marcus Talon is straight. I need to stay away from him.

Talon:

Years ago, Miller and I made a pact that we'd win a Super Bowl together. When I'm offered a position on his team in Chicago, I don't hesitate. I move across the country to chase a dream that's a decade old. Only, now that I'm here, he's avoiding me every chance he gets. If he was anyone else, I'd cut my losses. But this is Shane Miller - the guy who makes everything better just by existing in my universe. The guy I'd do anything for. The guy who's more to me than a brother, a friend, or even a teammate. I'm not going to let him get away.

Contains mature themes.

Very sexy without being over dirty, grimy or classless.

First of all I can’t believe that this author is a woman. How does she know so much about gay men love, sex and relationship issues. I think this is one of the most sexy and accurate portrayal’s of a gay athletes coming out story without the whole Super Bowl / Super Star Athlete’s part. I’m a gay athlete who fell in love with a childhood friend who was also my teammate. It really does hit home and we felt a lot of the same feelings and went through some of the same issues that were brought up in this book. If I’m being honest I would have been the Miller character in our relationship. I highly recommend this book just on its sexy ness and accurate portrayal of men in sports these days. Also the love and sex scenes are EXTREMELY HOT HOT HOT!!!!! Without being stereotypical or pornographic.

A great couple complete with football

This is by far my favorite Eden Finley book. both Shane and Marcus are just to hot and yummy for words. their story is so good that it would make even the most critical person to stop and reconsider their 1st choice of verbal judgement. I highly recommend that you buy this book and enjoy.

Love this book

This book was just as good on audio as it was in print. Miller and Talon go from friends to lovers in this fun story.

Good Book!!!

Honestly, not my favorite in the series but as always it was a good listen. Can't believe i found myself identifying with a 6ft 5in football player (being a short plus size woman) but i did.

Excellent, must read.

This was such a sweet friend's to lovers book. It's my favorite of the series. The characters are very relatable, and the plot is awesome. I really liked that it was realistic as far as everyone's reactions to the couple. It wasn't ootsie tootsie woowoo, it was realistic. There are parts that made me tear up, because their love was so powerful.


The narrators were awesome. I love the fact that each book has different voices. Many narrators use the same voices for each of their books, so when you listen to a lot by them, every book sounds the same. But not these two, each book is different, and they do a great job of imitating the others voice for the character, when it's their chapter.

This entire series is wonderful, realistic, up front about how hard it is to be LGBTQIA in sports. They don't just play it off as no big deal, like everyone is accepting. The author has done an excellent job of not being sickingly sweet, but definitely shows the love. It's not that men can't be sweet and romantic, but some authors take it to far, and they sound more like a gender switch instead of men, and I hate that. This author never does that, but weaves the love and romance into the story beautifully.

Another excellent book in the series. The narration is superb as always. I really loved Talon and the way he embraced everything and stood by his man.

Not quite what I expected

it was more, I was intrigued by these two from the moment we met them and I have to say Finley took their story in a way I didn't really expect and was pleasantly surprised. This was a great addition to the series and a really great listen the narrators do an excellent job telling this story.

Not much here

3.5 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames

Narrators Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma gave an upbeat performance of this best friends to lovers gay romance. It missed the mark for some reason. It's probably because it's the 4th book and the same recipe over and over again. I did find the moods between the two narrators polar opposite. Alexander was funny and sounded like he was having a blast, while Iggy sounded like a robot.

I did have some giggles here and there, but this audiobook does not fall under one of my favorites.

I will recommend this audiobook, for the purpose of finishing the series, but there is not much to take home and appreciate.

Happy Listening
