"Huh. He’d rather deal with the media than kiss me. Someone get me a crash cart because my ego just flatlined."
- Trick Play by Eden Finley
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.

Perin's thoughts on - Trick Play
I could not stop. I refused to stop. I know I had important stuff to do but eh, I gotta get my daily share of Matt & Noah! Welcome to my life. Well, uh, that said. Now that I am done, I really don't want to bore you with my opinion. Too many have already told you what this book is about. I reckon you read the blurb. You better read that blurb. I dare you. So, let me show you Eden's Finley's amazing-ness instead:
Matt throws his head back and looks at the roof. “I swear if you don’t drop this, the next headline will read Matt Jackson Murders Boyfriend.” “Catchy. But someone as hot—and as old—as you shouldn’t be a virgin. We need to rectify that immediately.”
I block out Noah’s mumbled words of tight and hot and amazing, and every other term of need and affection because I know I won’t hear the one thing I want. I want words of forever and stay and a need that doesn’t include anything primal.
Below all his bullshit, Noah really is a sweetheart. A lost soul. And, well, Matt is one of those rare men that seemed to have gone out of style. A kind-hearted gentleman. I loved this pair. I laughed, my chest tightened and I went "Awww nooo" a lot of times. A perfect just-lemme-read-one-more-chapter-before-bed-whoops-now-it-is-2AM-page-turner.
Alright, we done here? Head over to Amazon and grab that juicy copy filled with angst, misunderstandings, LUST, and love.
