Publisher's Summary

Ollie:

Word of advice: Don't come out to random guys in public restrooms. Even if they're charming and adorably nerdy and offer to help.

My family believes I can't be happy if I'm not out to the world. I have a bitter ex-boyfriend and an unstable NHL career to show for it. A fake boyfriend seems like an easy and quick solution to get my family off my back, and this guy is volunteering. I take him up on it without asking his name.

I really should've asked for his name.

Lennon:

Word of advice: Learn how to introduce yourself properly. In my defense, I don't recognize Ollie Strömberg right away. I cover football, not hockey. I'm not supposed to see him again, and he's never supposed to find out I'm a reporter. That all changes when my editor reassigns me.

It's a lesson I should've learned by now. Nothing's changed since high school. Jocks still hate nerds. But even worse, athletes hate journalists. Especially ones who know their secret.

Contains mature themes.

All the Sexy Hockey Goodness!

I LOVED this book, so when the audio came up for pre-order, I was all over it! This narration duo has done an amazing job with this series to date, so I knew it was going to be good! First, this story has so many of my favorite tropes: Fake boyfriend, athlete (hello hockey god), the nerdy guy and a coming out story. I really loved this book and and the audio really brought Ollie and Lennon to life for me. It’s funny, I legit snorted in parts, and it’s sexy and SO hot. It’s one of those stories you want to hurry up and finish so you can see how it ends, but you want to savor it too because it’s amazing and you don’t want it to end! I loved the subtle tie-ins from other stories as well! This author always leaves me wanting for more of her writing and I cannot wait for Talon and Miller’s story. Thankfully we didn't have to wait long for the next audio with their story, Blindsided! I’m so glad we don’t have to leave these wonderful characters behind yet!

Cute and funny

This was a cute fake boyfriend, and an interesting take on a family being to supportive. I liked the couple together, and Lennon and his desire for his articles to be published.

Once again, I always enjoy how the author does not make the characters sickingly sweet and mushy. She thoughtfully shows their love and story in a realistic way.

There was a lot of humor here and I found myself laughing out loud at the jokes, especially the ones in Ollie's family.

The narrators do an excellent job, as usual. The Boston accent was spot on (I know someone from Boston and it sounds just like him), and both characters has unique voices. What I enjoy about these narrators, is each books voices are different. It isn't the exact same accent and voice for every book, many narrators do that. So each book sounds the same.

This entire series, and the spin offs are fun to read, hit you in the feels, and the friendships and bonds she creates in her characters are heartwarming. Everyone needs a tribe, and I love how this tribe grows with every book.

Deke, Fake Boyfriend 3

This book was AHHHMAZING

So Good. And Freaking Funny.

Literally the first Chapter I was spitting my coffee out laughing, I was not expecting this book to be so funny.

Lennon and Ollie are such a good match. I think the way they met and some of the stuff that happens after they re-meet are just so much fun to read/hear it was definitely entertaining and my Favorite of the series so far. Even though I really did love the first two books as well. omg and Ollie's family is seriously funny too... One word.... "Clark" lol... I enjoyed the story line for this "Fake Boyfriend" book. It was different than some of the other books I've read with the same "trope" which keeps you interested and invested in the story and how it progresses. I was glad these guys got their HEA without too much drama and little angst, it was just all fun.

Audio - Once again the dynamic between the two voices Iggy Toma & Alexander Cendese and the character personalities/traits they had to narrate in this book were pretty perfect. I loved both their voices for these guys and will be listening to this one again in the near future.

Fun & funny

Hit my funny bone dead on. I laughed a lot.
Narrators are still excellent. A little surprised no mention was made that hockey players tend to have very well developed backsides but I only mention that because I had to add words.

Wonderfully brought to life

Deke is my favorite so far in this series!! Ollie and Lennon are adorable together and Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma do a great job once again bringing Eden Finley’s book to life. Makes me so excited to hear the next book in the series and can not wait for Soren’s full story!!! Ahh!
