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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shane Miller and Marcus Talon were best friends. Football was their passion. Winning the Super Bowl together was their dream. Time and distance had separated them, but when they wind up on the same NFL team they realize the crazy things they did in college just wouldn’t work in their high profile lives. Miller is pretty sure he’s in love with Talon and Talon is pretty sure he shouldn’t be having “those” kind of feelings for another man.

Miller and Talon, back together again. This time without another body (or two) between them. They will just have to discover how to make football and loving another man work together.

This was a very feel good story for me. The men just fit together so well. When one would freak out the other did the calming and vice versa. I liked watching them discover their joy with each other. I’ve always enjoyed this authors stories and this one was sweet. I do like sports romances and big, cuddly, marshmallow filled jocks discovering that there just might be more to life than tossing a ball around (no pun intended). There are some mfm scenes but nothing really graphic.

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 apologizes for her Australianisms that sometimes don’t make sense to anyone else.
