Trope: Friends to lovers, secret relationship



The fall from NHL superstar to domestic disaster was swift and painful. When I became the legal guardian of my five younger siblings, I had no idea what I was doing.

One year later, I’m still lost.

Coaching CU’s hockey team might be the only thing I’m excelling at. But when our star forward is failing math, I have to do what it takes to keep him on the team. Even if it’s going head-to-head with Jasper Eckstein.

One minute I’m confronting the notorious hockey-hating professor, and the next I’m agreeing to be his date to his twenty-year high school reunion.

I don’t know how that happened.


My rules are simple. I don’t give extra credit. Ever. No matter how entitled jocks think they are, I refuse to give them special treatment.

It’s not because I hate them. It’s not because a hockey player broke my nose in high school.

It’s fair.

But when Westly Dalton bursts into my office like a hurricane, all my principles fly out the window.

Suddenly I’m giving extra credit.

And I have a date to my reunion.

After one explosive night together, I want more, but his home life is a mess, and I don’t want to get in the way. If all we can have is quick thrills, I’m okay with that.

It’s not like I could ever fall for a jock.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fantastic finale to the series! The tension between Jas and West at the beginning was delicious, there was so much heat coming through all that initial snark, and from then on, they were just ON FIRE! We find out there’s a lot hiding under Jasper’s professional exterior, the same with West, having to fill the role of parent to five kids after all the freedom and hedonism of his NHL lifestyle, this is one guy who needs to cut loose now and again. The Dalton siblings take a prominent role and they’re as rambunctious as ever and I adore each and every one of them. West and Asher definitely have their hands full there. A big shout out to Dave and Greg too, they are hilarious and just the balance Jasper needs if he’s going to loosen that tie and shuck off the tweed and enjoy some Westly time. Their romantic journey was perfection, we got it all; sorta enemies to lovers, fake boyfriend, jock/nerd, age gap, and so much heat! If you’ve enjoyed this series so far, you’re going to love the sexy professor and the hot coach. I’m sad to see this series end but it’s certainly going out with a bang! Also, don’t miss the bonus scene link you can grab at the end.

Meet The Authors

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 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.
