I’ve always known Wyatt was hot, but scotch and half a bottle of tequila makes him so Goddamn beautiful.
After my last disastrous relationship with a close friend, you'd think I'd learn my lesson and choose someone else for a rebound. Someone I don't have a solid friendship with.
I should definitely stay away from Wyatt. But when have I ever listened to logic?

Awww, that was just too freaking cute for words.

This short story had plenty of attraction, longing, fear, and feels, while keeping the angst to a minimum.

I loved how Aron got all possessive and growly with Wyatt's ex. And that Aron and Noah finally cleared the musty, stale air between them.

Plus, the one steamy scene was smoking hot to boot. And kudos for a bit of flip-floppy versatility. ;- )

Aron and Wyatt were adorable together, so I'd recommend this 4.25 star novella for any fans of the series

I was curious about Aron and Wyatt after reading Trick Play and this cute, little, saucy nugget gave me everything I wanted about how they got together. I especially loved their honesty.

I am bummed though that the ending is super rushed. I would have liked to have seen Wyatt and Aron together for a minute after they decided to officially give their relationship a try. Just a few paragraphs or so before the two month time jump.

Short, snappy, witty, sexy, loved this little side snippet from the Fake Boyfriends series in which Aron and Wyatt realise what makes their friendship so special is each other.

I wasn't sure how I would like getting Aron's story after seeing him pine over Noah but I actually really enjoyed it. The whole Noah thing wasn't an issue and the main focus was on him and Wyatt, who I loved! The sexual chemistry between them was amazing and made this short story a very heated one. Definitely a novella I recommend reading!

Omg I loved this! This author has been on my feed forever but I have never read anything by her. This was the perfect motive.
That was cute and sweet.
This was a little extra bit detailing the how and why for some of the background coupling up in the main friend group. It was okay but in hindsight I didn't really need this.

Enjoyable read about two friends finding their forever in each other.

It's a short story so there wasn't a lot of time for the story to develop in a more acceptable pace, but there was a very nice epilogue that made everything so much better. I believe that it can be read as a standalone but you'll have a lot more fun if you start at the beginning of the series.

A short and nice friends to lovers novella.
It gives Aron's story a closure 😊

Totally completely LOVED this book. From the connection to the sexual chemistry. It was sweet, sexy but full of true feelings that you could see in a real life relationship.

Short story about Aron and Wyatt and how they understand that the perfect person, their soul mate, was right near them all the time. The other men and women they dated(yes they are bi), were only someone they needed before they finally were ready to really look around and understand their true feelings.
They probably were always in love with each other but too scared of ruining their friendship, and kept hiding behind the "bro(s) code".

Ps= There was more jealousy in these 57 pages than in

Short and sweet. If you read book 2 you know Wyatt and Aron became a thing. This book gives us the background on how their relationship went from friends to more.

Loved this addition to the series.
I am glad that Aron who got jilted by Noah in the first book, found his own man.
I also enjoyed how all the three parts of the series gel together nicely.
Great fun with cute banter!
This was a great short story to compliment this series. It isn't the fake relationship trope, but it fit in this series and was a quick story full of hotness and cuteness.

Aron is the guy that was sleeping with Noah prior to the events of book #2 in this series, and who had feelings for Noah while for Noah it was still casual.

While Noah is off fake-boyfriend-ing with Matt, and subsequently falling in love with him, Aron is rebounding with one of his best friend's, Wyatt, who is also trying to ge

The effort trying to be funny, sweet, and romantic was palpable in this story. It didn’t flow; it felt extremely forced for me. If this is what the other books in the series are like, I think I’m gonna be staying away from it
Sweet addition,
I'm so happy for Aron. :)

I needed to see what all the fuss was about, and dayyyum this story is awesome.
I haven't read anything by Eden Finley, but now that I got a taste I'm gonna have to correct that very soon. It isn't necessary to read the Fake Boyfriend books in order to enjoy this one, but the characters from those books, make an appearance, so if you want to know the connections between them, I suggest you start with those.
I really liked the humorous writing here, the characters are funny and sweet, but not in a

Aron is a hot mess.
I thought so before in Noah’s story, and this story cements it.

Unnecessary rant... (view spoiler)

Heartbreaks and rebounds. Can be the start of something bad, if you aren't careful. And when Aron has been through a couple of the group of friends already, getting involved with another could be even worse. But Wyatt has had a crush on Aron for years and even though he's not a one-night stand kind of guy, he does for Aron. But one night turns into two and three nights and ends up turning into more. Both are nervous about it, but they've both realized, they're it for each other. But can they tru ...more

Aww, all the feels – that was just wonderful!!

I love Aron and Wyatt! They made great secondary characters and I’m so glad Eden decided on sharing their love story for this Novella. I enjoyed the little taste of their journey and felt Eden did a great job in setting the scene, the character dynamics and the condensed storyline with so few words. I felt all the emotions with Aron and Wyatt and enjoyed ‘watching’ then grow and find love with each other. I look forward

This was a cute and perfect little short story. I enjoyed it very much. The author's style of writing is really well and I was worried b/c the series I have only listened to so reading a book/novella was gonna be different but I could totally hear the "tone" and enjoyed it a lot.
