The Boyfriend Comeback by Lauren Blakely


Release Date: September 13th

Add to Goodreads:



A standalone, rivals-to-lovers, second chance MM sports romance full of secrets, first times and forbidden love…

Some men are just off-limits. Like, say, all the other football players in the league….

I have to stop replaying the one night I spent with my rival. Trouble is, that white-hot encounter with the other quarterback answered a lot of questions I’ve had about myself, but it also led me into this mess where he hates me.

I never showed up for our second date. Since, well, life happened, and the worst part is he’ll never know how much that night meant to me.

But when I’m traded to his cross-town rivals, that’s not the time to serve up my secrets to him either. My team’s PR department wants to double down on our rivalry. I need to focus on football, not on my interest in men. Except, the more time I spend doing media appearances and charity events with the sexy, generous, popular guy, the hungrier I am to finish what we started.

It’s a bad idea to knock on his door late one night. I could lose everything. He’s probably not even home.

But when the door swings open and I’m face to face with the man I want desperately, I have a choice to make.




Narrated by Teddy Hamilton & J.F. Harding


The Boyfriend Comeback by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LISTEN! The story in these pages is one huge #swoonfest with just enough angst to make it interesting. Lauren’s stories have always been a hit-or-miss with me but no matter what, she’s always a #oneclick for me because her stories are happy. Even when the story should, probably, call for deep angst, she doesn’t do that. The worlds that she creates focus mostly on the positive spin of life and tend to leave the dark and shadowed corners far far away. I like that a lot, and it’s something I am guaranteed in whatever story she pens, so she’s a #oneclick author for me because of it.

This story, and many others by her, could have easily gone off the rails #reallife, but she made a choice not to do that and still wrote a very realistic and relatable romance journey between two men in the spotlight of professional sports. Jason and beck’s story made me happy. Don’t get me wrong, there were moments of deep emotion in the story but the overall sense of the story was hope and happiness and I felt it. This was a hit story for me and I can’t wait to read more in this series!
