Word of advice: don't come out to random guys in public restrooms. Even if they're charming and adorably nerdy and offer to help.

My family believe I can't be happy if I'm not out to the world. I have a bitter ex-boyfriend and an unstable NHL career to show for it. A fake boyfriend seems like an easy and quick solution to get my family off my back, and this guy is volunteering. I take him up on it without asking his name.

I really should've asked for his name.

Word of advice: learn how to introduce yourself properly.

In my defense, I don't recognize Ollie Strömberg right away. I cover football, not hockey.

I'm not supposed to see him again, and he's never supposed to find out I'm a reporter.

That all changes when my editor reassigns me.

It's a lesson I should've learned by now. Nothing's changed since high school. Jocks still hate nerds. But even worse, athletes hate journalists. Especially ones who know their secret.

    I liked Deke by new-to-me author, Eden Finley, but the longer I sat on my review, the fewer positive things I could come up with about the story. Huh.Ollie's family dynamics were memorable and well wr...

    Another win for me from Eden Finley. Third in her series “Fake Boyfriend”, it can be read as a standalone, but I would suggest to read the whole series if you enjoy romances set up in the sport wo...
