it was amazing



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.

*Deke is a full-length MM novel with a HFN/HEA and no cliffhanger*


It was amazing!! 

Each book in this series is better than the previous one! Ollie is an NHL hockey player who is proud but out only to his family. His family is absolutely supportive of him and maybe a bit too supportive. They want him to come out to the whole world but he isn’t ready for that yet. It doesn’t help that they think he’s ashamed of being gay when in reality he just doesn’t want to be the only gay player in NHL.              Lennon is a sports reporter and when a stranger in a bathroom comes out to him and tells him about his family he helps him out by pretending to be his boyfriend.
Lennon is an amazing character, funny and witty, one of my absolute favourites! Oh, and dare I say, they are fucking hot together!! The scenes with Ollie’s family where they think he’s Clark cause he looks like Clark Kent (Superman) were just gold!
We also have appearances from previous books- Matt and Noah & Damon and Maddox. And Jet! Gimme more of him!!! I can’t wait for Talon and Miller!!!!!(exclamations are directly proportional to excitement)
I obviously LOVED this book and you will too!
