Blindsided by Eden Finley
When Talon left to play pro ball six years ago, the hole in my chest confused me. I focused my heartache into making my own NFL dreams come true, and by the time I was drafted, the longing I had for my best friend was buried deep.
Now he wants everything to be like it was in college, but we can’t have threesomes and be reckless like we once were. The media storm would be enough to break both our careers.
That’s not my biggest concern though. The torch I had for him burns brighter after so long apart, and there’s nothing I can do about it. Marcus Talon is straight.
I need to stay away from him.
Years ago, Miller and I made a pact that we’d win a Super Bowl together. When I’m offered a position on his team in Chicago, I don’t hesitate. I move across the country to chase a dream that’s a decade old.
Only, now that I’m here, he’s avoiding me every chance he gets. If he was anyone else, I’d cut my losses.
But this is Shane Miller—the guy who makes everything better just by existing in my universe. The guy I’d do anything for. The guy who’s more to me than a brother, a friend, or even a teammate.
I’m not going to let him get away.
This is my favourite Eden Finley book. It’s everything I ever wanted and more. #teamSharcus all the way!
Talon and Miller are explosive together. Like when they are together they create fireworks. I’m so glad she wrote this book as they were only meant to be supporting characters in Trick Play.Like how Talon says, they belong together.
Talon is amazing and so very oblivious. He’s an all or nothing kinda guy. Jumps in with both feet first. While Miller is a little more level headed(very little).They are opposites that balance each other.
This book also deals with being LGBT+ in the sports. The pressure is huge. We get to meet characters from the previous books too. I will always want more of Damon and Maddox and Matt and Noah. And Lennon ofcourse. I loved every single word of this book. Couldn’t put it down and can you imagine how hard it is to read in class and keep a straight face?(no pun intended)
That epilogue was swoon worthy. It’s sooo Talon. Well he is Talon-ted!
