Publisher's Summary

Matt: Want to know the fastest way to get screwed out of a football career? Get photographed in a compromising position in a gay bar. Yep, welcome to my life.   

My agent says he can fix my image. He wants me to become the poster boy for gay football players. Me? I just want back on the field. I'll do anything to play for the NFL again, even pretend to have a steady boyfriend. If only my fake boyfriend wasn't Noah Huntington III - the most arrogant, entitled rich guy in the world.  

Noah: Pretend to be Matt Jackson's boyfriend, my best friend said. It'll be fun, he said. What Damon neglected to mention is Matt is surly and bitter. Being his boyfriend is a job in itself. From his paranoia over being constantly photographed to his aversion to PDA, being with Matt isn't the care-free fake relationship I expected when I signed on to do this.   

It's supposed to be a win-win. I get to stick it to my politician dad who thinks no one is good enough for the Huntington name, and Matt's reputation of being the bad boy of football dies.  

What I don't expect is to start caring for the guy. That's not part of the plan. Then again, neither is fooling around with him.   

Oops.  

Contains mature themes.

Matt & Noah

This is the second book of the series, and I originally read the books first and then grabbed the Audibles once they came available. I truly loved these stories even more after listening to them. They are witty, funny, sexy and fun. In this book, Matt is a newly outed football player in need of a Fake Boyfriend to help clean up his image after a scandalous coming out. Noah volunteers for the role to fulfill his own attention seeking needs. What results is not a lot of faking, and a lot of feelings being had. I’m a big fan of sports romances and when you throw in the “fake” trope it’s a read (or listen) I can’t pass up. Matt and Noah are characters you immediately love and begin rooting for. It was funny, sexy, hot and I didn’t want it to end. So much so I can’t wait for the next part to the series...whichever character that may be.

good story, decent narration

I read the first book and remember these characters, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that they got their own stand-alone book. the fact that I read the first book and then to audible I wasn't prepared for the Dual naratiors. when Matt was narrating I was totally fine with it but with Noah is my narating I felt like he was rushed, and I didn't necessarily care for it.
The story itself was pretty good, I could get into both characters mindset and feel their struggles.
The sex was pretty good.
I would recommend all the books in the series and I'll definitely listen to the next one.

Great series

Great new series for me, I picked up this one right after finishing book 1. Again I went back and forth between audio & kindle, I loved Alexander Cendese for Noah, but Iggy as Matt just ....meh. This one was just like book 1, an OTT meeting transforming into a very real story. These boys had fire chemistry and each one had a story. Both of the M/C’s had issues to deal with and IMO the pacing and writing was great. Looking forward to the next one.

A really good story, can't wait for the next one

In this book both Matt and Noah will steal your hearts. both of these men are struggling with their own crap and find that all they really need is each other. oh and the dad in is book will make you so mad!
so take a chance and fall for Matt and Noah just like I did.

I love this story so much!!! Great Narration!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars
🔥🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 4
🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 4.5

I love this story so much!!! Amazing writing, fantastic characters and a wonderful journey to a HEA!!

This is my second time reading Trick Play and first time listening to the narration. I love Noah and Matt and found their story wonderfully endearing and real.

I really enjoyed Matt and Noah story and found each character endearing in their own way. I love Noah’s cocky confidence and spoilt, sarcastic self, which he hides behind to avoid getting hurt again, when really he is so loving, caring, generous and has a big heart capable of love. I love his passion for his new project; Rainbow Beds (which I wish was real, well done Eden) and is open heart to letting Jett (Matt’s Brother) into his heart as well.

I feel for Matt as this is a horrid why to ‘come out’. I feel Eden has a great talent for getting across complex emotions and creating the rollercoaster Matt has to go through in this book. Matt is trying to figure out which way is up and has to fight tooth and nail to ‘save’ his football career. I loved the journey Matt goes on to find his way back to football, finding his new self and a new love along the way.

I love Noah and Matt and think they have a great dynamic.
It’s a wonderful story with twists and turns and the perfect HEA.
Sometimes I wish the characters would just say what they feel and stop pussyfooting around but it all works out in the end.
I love seeing characters from book one and loved the new characters introduced throughout this world. I look forward to many more Fake Boyfriend books. Great work Eden! Can’t wait to see what Eden can come up with next.

🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 4.5 headphones; Review:
I found the Narration by Alexander Cendese (Noah) and Iggy Toma (Matt) for Trick Play really good. In my mind these voices where near perfect for the characters and Alexander’s voice for Jett is awesome and I love Alex’s attempt at an Australian accent!!! Both voice artists are great and while I’ve listened to them both during Fake Out (Fake Boyfriends, Book 1), I felt they were able to create different dialects in Trick Play that I was able to differentiate all the characters. I’ve listened to Iggy before and loved his work and found his rendition of Matt really good and loved his accent when Matt went all southern, swoon 😍!
All in all, great narration for an awesome story!!!

Thanks for reading!
