Book Review

Trick Play by Eden Finley is Releasing today! Here’s our review

Release Date: June 27, 2018

Cover Design: Kellie Dennis / Book Cover by Design






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.


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 on my private jet.






My Thoughts

Matt just wants to play football. He has spent his whole life hiding his sexuality but one drunken night blows the closet door wide open. Now his life is in a spiral and he doesn’t know how to get out. Noah is used to living in the spotlight with cameras following him, so when Matt’s agent decides he needs a ‘new boyfriend’ to help his image Noah is the perfect option.  The two of them are constantly at each other’s throats so no one is sure they’ll be able to pull off the lovey-dovey look until they realize they might actually like each other. That just opens up a new set of problems that could end with a broken heart – or two. 

I read the first book in the Fake Boyfriend series by Eden Finley so I knew I was going to enjoy the author’s writing style; I also knew Noah’s story was going to be so entertaining that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. I loved his personality in the last book when we met him and the chemistry he has with Matt makes it worth the wait to find out ‘will they or won’t they?’.  I would say you don’t have to read the books in a particular order; we meet Matt and Noah in Fake Out but that story focuses on Maddox and Damon – who both make appearances in this book.  There were so many moments while reading this that the author had my emotions going all over the place; I also don’t think I’ve ever read a book where I was laughing so much and then the next page was sad and heartbroken. There was so much good about this book that my only complaint is wanting more of Matt and Noah!

She’s also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don’t make sense to anyone else.
