Can one perfect night lead to more?
Jordan Green is too busy for a relationship. With the World Cup looming, his focus is on making the England team, not finding someone to spend his life with. His friends may be settling down, but Jordan’s had enough of planning weddings. All he wants is some fun, and Félix is the perfect person for that… even if he is his boss’s brother.
Félix Trossero is not looking for love. Or a relationship. Or anything beyond tomorrow morning. He’s rich, he’s handsome and he’s incredibly happy with his playboy lifestyle. He doesn’t want anything else. That is, until he runs into one of his former flings at his brother’s football club.
Neither of them want commitment, but neither of them can resist their connection. While Félix is forced to deal with his past, Jordan must face his worst fears. Will they put their hearts on the line for one final score?
Final Score is a 77,000-word contemporary gay romance featuring an age gap relationship, hidden restaurants, unicorn slime and a public declaration of love. It is book three in the Off the Pitch series and should be read as part of the series.
My Rating - 5 Stars!
Final Score, the third book in Charlie Novak's Off the Pitch series, is an awesome out for you romance.
If you appreciate books that start with a hook-up, you'll enjoy this hot one. Jordan's a closeted bisexual football/soccer player. After hooking up with the wealthy Felix in a hotel bar, suddenly everything changes. As they end up seeing one another again, things get more personal. And I genuinely love it all.
Jordan and Felix make a cute couple with an alluring fifteen year age gap. Their relationship is intriguing as they go from hooking up to falling in love, despite neither wanting a relationship at the start.
Distance makes for a entertaining factor in this story, as one is from London, the other from Australia.
I love the writing, which is no surprise, as this whole series is splendid. Both men are well explored, both as individuals and as a couple. The character development is supreme, the pace is pleasant, and the steam is dazzling. The banter is amusing, especially Felix's antics with his nieces.
Final Score is a great romance by Charlie Novak. This is a perfect book when you're in the mood for a feel good read. Despite dealing with some tough issues, the overall feel is light. In fact, the whole series is well worth a read, so be sure to check it out.
