Fake Out by Eden Finley

Release Date: March 19. 2018
Cover Design: Kellie Dennis / Book Cover by Design


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. Damon 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?




Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Maddox has gotten himself into a bit of a mess after pretending to be gay to break up with his ex.  She has now invited him and his boyfriend to her wedding...except he's not gay and there is no boyfriend.  Damon, who is his best friend's brother, steps up to help him fake it.

Except faking it turns into something more and something real as is usual in these cases.  Maddox struggles to understand his attraction and reaction to Damon, whilst Damon refuses to be used as an experiment again.

Whilst Maddox's struggles with his sexuality was set against a back drop of other events, it was dealt with really well with hints of humour running throughout.  I liked this book and its characters.  I felt engaged with their story throughout.

About the Author

Eden Finley is a steamy romance author by day, but Batman at night...
Okay, I’m not Batman, but I feel like I am. I have a cool secret name and everything. I have several Young Adult works published under my real name. For this reason, I chose a pen name to write for this genre. Well that, and I don’t want my mother to read these books. Seriously, how freaking awkward would that be?
