Blindsided by Eden Finley is Finally Here! Click here to read our review

Release Date: March 20, 2019

Cover Design: Kellie Dennis / Book Cover by Design





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.

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.



Our Review

Marcus Talon and Shane Miller have always had a close friendship – but when one of them secretly yearns for more than friendship, well that certainly takes a toll on things. At least while they were on different teams it was easier to ignore, but once they’re back on the same team – and they try a wild night like what they’re used to – then it becomes obvious a friendship just won’t be enough for Miller. But Talon is not going to lose him – at least not that easily. Maybe he wants more, and who better to help him understand his sexuality than the guy who’s always been by his best friend?

I have not ever really been a big fan of sports romances – maybe because I’ve never been a big fan of athletes – but Eden Finley’s Fake boyfriend series is a big exception. The Heroes in this book are both very masculine with alpha male tendencies so picturing them together caught my eye from the beginning; I had to know how the author was going to bring the two men together. This book is listed at 290 pages so it isn’t too long of a read – but the author manages to pack a lot into those pages; there is enough chemistry, tension, drama, and even sports related nonsense to make you feel immersed in the world of Miller and Talon. You’ll not want to put the book down once you start it! This is the fourth book in the series – and while we catch up with several people from the previous books, they can all be read standalone. Overall it was a great read and I can’t wait to see what comes next from the author.

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 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.
