The Faker by Gina Azzi

 

Title: The Faker
Series: Boston Hawks Hockey #3
Author: Gina Azzi
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: April 21, 2021

 

NHL hotshot Torsten Hansen is a lot of things. My husband shouldn’t be one of them. 

One emotional night slinging tequila shots and singing karaoke with the Hawks defenseman turns into more than I bargained for. A wicked hangover, an eviction notice, and a marriage proposal.

If Torsten and I wed, he can fulfill a promise to his grandmother and the debt I’m drowning in will be paid by his trust fund. It’s a win-win, an easy and straightforward arrangement between friends.

So what if my friend has piercing blue eyes, a sensual smirk, and a body that occupies my dreams? It shouldn’t matter that Torsten understands my past and makes me feel safe.

Except it does. Because if I give my heart to my husband, how will I survive our eventual divorce?

EXCERPT

I walk beside her, wondering if I’ve lost my damn mind.

What the hell was I thinking? Did I seriously just propose marriage to a woman I’ve spent a total of fifteen hours with, in group settings, over blueberry pancakes?

Yes, yes I did.

We’re quiet as we walk, both of us lost in our thoughts. Except mine swing from angry to needy to frustrated. I hate that Rielle questioned our friendship, as if I don’t give a shit about her. I know we aren’t close and don’t really know each other but does she seriously think I treat her the same way I treat puck bunnies? Her accusation stung and it shouldn’t have because it’s the perception I’ve spent years cultivating.

I just don’t like that it worked on her.

Then, there’s the fact that she’s obviously in some kind of trouble. Four hundred and seventy thousand dollars? Really? That’s not normal credit card or student loan debt. That’s serious, life-altering, damaging debt. Is someone trying to shake her down? Is that why she has bruises on her arm?

Jesus. I scrape a hand over my face, glancing at Rielle from the corner of my eye. She keeps her head straight ahead, her footsteps even, her shoulders pulled back. I couldn’t get a read on her if I was a fucking mind reader.

But marriage? No, I didn’t propose marriage. I proposed something different. A transaction. And she knows it.

 


The Faker by Gina Azzi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was super excited to start this book. I loved Torsten since book 1 and I wanted him to find someone to share his burden with. His and Rielle’s relationship was not standard but they clicked and were made for each other. They both have a lot of baggage and are refusing to accept help which at end almost breaks their bond.

Luckily they figure out in time that together they are stronger and better and cannot live without each other and I was left with the biggest smile on my face when I saw ‘big daddy’ getting his HEA.
