You know what’s not fun? Going on a Fiji vacation with four other couples. Especially when recently single.
What’s even worse is when a past hook-up arrives unannounced.
Not only do we have a history, but he’s ten years younger and a famous rock star. Most importantly, he’s my friend’s little brother.
Being trapped on an island with Jet Jackson is going to be sweet torture because all I want is another chance.
I just don’t think he’s going to give it to me.

You know what’s not fun? Escaping one guy who broke my heart only to run into another.
Being on the road for three years has left me exhausted. The last thing I want is for Caleb ‘Soren’ Sorensen to try for round two.
I can’t fight my draw to him. I’ve never been able to.
I’m suddenly back to being the naïve kid who stupidly lusted after a hockey player.
All I can think is if I let Soren get close, I’ll walk away from this vacation with a double broken heart.

Hat Trick is a full-length M/M romance with a guaranteed HEA. This is the final book in the Fake Boyfriend series and as such is not recommended to be read as a standalone. All main characters of the series feature heavily.

What a fantastic end to an outstanding series! In Hat Trick, we finally got Soren’s and Jet’s story. Their story is deliciously angsty, swoony, and sexy.


-Soren. He’s 33, nearing the end of his hockey career, and coming off a breakup from his long term boyfriend. I loved Soren, his loyalty, and his selflessness. He seriously made me swoon.

-Jet. He’s a 23-year-old up and coming musician. Jet wears his heart on his sleeve.

-I loved how Eden Finley covered their entire history. We got it all, and I must add that she handled the flashbacks expertly. They were a pivotal part of their story, and they were integrated perfectly.

-Second chance. For Soren, Jet was the one that got away, and for Jet, there was always “what ifs.”

-Age gap. There’s a 10-year difference, and I’m happy to report their age difference isn’t something that gets dragged out like some books.

-CHEMISTRY. It’s hot, at one point, even dirty. 😉

-Despite this installment being pretty angsty, it never felt overwhelming.

-And the end was perfect.

The Fake Boyfriend Series by Eden Finley just continued to get better and better with each book. Not only are they fun, sweet, and passionate, but they’re also about family, friendships, courage, and love.

5 Stars! Highly recommend it!
