The reason I rarely go home is three simple words: I’m a liar.
When the pressure to marry my childhood sweetheart became too much, I told her I was gay and then fled to New York like my ass was on fire.
Now, five years later and after a drunken encounter, I find myself invited to her wedding. And I have to bring my boyfriend—the boyfriend who doesn’t exist because I’m straight.
At least, I think I am. Meeting the guy I’m bribing to be my boyfriend for the weekend makes me question everything about myself.
When my sister asks me to pretend to be some straight guy’s boyfriend, my automatic response is to say no. It’s because of guys like him people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m gay.
But Maddox has something I need.
After an injury that cost me my baseball career, I’m trying to leave my playing days behind and focus on being the best sports agent I can be. Forty-eight hours with my sister’s best friend in exchange for a meeting with a possible client. I can do this.
I just wish he wasn’t so hot. Or that he didn’t kiss like he means it.
Wait … why is the straight guy kissing me?
*Fake Out is a full-length MM novel with no cliffhanger.*
My Rating - 5 Stars!
Fake Out is the 1st book in Eden Finley's Fake Boyfriend Series. It is an absolute page turner.
Maddox is stuck in a bind when he's invited to his ex's wedding. As he's told to bring his boyfriend, Maddox has to figure out what to do since he doesn't actually have a boyfriend because he's straight. If only he hadn't told her he was gay and fled town when he decided to dump her.
Damon is set up to be Maddox's fake boyfriend for the wedding. He agrees to do so in exchange for a business connection. Too bad he's so damn attracted to Maddox.
Things start to get complicated when straight Maddox ends up kissing Damon. It ends up that Maddox isn't as straight as he thought. So, now what? Do labels matter?
This story is filled with warm characters, wonderful humor, and some fantastic secondary characters. Damon's sister is one of my favorites as she adds so damn much to this story. It is truly refreshing when the side characters end up being so entertaining.
I highly recommend Fake Out, as it is romantic, steamy, fake boyfriend romance.
