You know what’s not fun? Going on a Fiji vacation with four other couples. Especially when recently single.
What’s even worse is when a past hook-up arrives unannounced.
Not only do we have a history, but he’s ten years younger and a famous rock star. Most importantly, he’s my friend’s little brother.
Being trapped on an island with Jet Jackson is going to be sweet ...more
Wow, wow, WOW! This story fully earned its place alongside the rest of the books in this amazing series.
And everything that happened during the group's vacation in Fiji, taking Jet and Soren from a place of awkward interactions and hurt feelings to so much more? Gah!
It gave us our defining moment. It was the first time I’d heard Jet’s song the way it was supposed to be heard, the first time I saw how much we had truly affected each other’s lives, and the whole place means so much to me a...more
After reading every single book in this series, I had a feeling that Jet and Soren's book was gonna be my favorite. I have been looking forward to Jet's story ever since he was introduced and I can gladly say that I was right... It was awesome !!!
It became clear pretty fast that Jet and Soren have been keeping some pretty naughty secrets from everyone else. Flashbacks of a sexy rendezvous show us how well Jet and Soren really know each other !!
So when these two meet up again on a Fiji getaway...more
Story - 3.5 stars
I have been waiting for Jet's story ever since he was introduced in this series. I enjoyed his story, though i wanted to love it. I am a little bummed his awesomeness was Kinda tamed down here.
This could have been filled with a lot of drama, but the author decided not to go there and i appreciated that. I got no ranting energy.
Jet and Soren fit together, they do deserve each other. The chemistry was there and i was bummed a little because Jet spent almost h ...more
I wanna say it was like at first chapter with these men but honestly, it took me a bit to connect with these characters. I was maybe a quarter or more in when I was starting to really get into their story. I liked that we were given their past because it really made you root for their now and future. I even liked the fact that Jet wasn't completely over his recent break up just because Soren was now back in the picture and single as well. They were both honest about still being in their ...more
Hat Trick is book 5 of Eden Finley's Fake Boyfriend series. This story changes the game and there is no fake boyfriend trope actually going on. Instead we have a bit of the forbidden romance happening since Jet is the younger brother of Soren's friend, Matt, whose story we got in book 2, Trick Play.
Ever since reading Matt's book I've been super excited to get Jet's story. He was such a fun and crazy character that I knew his own boo ...more
This could've been soooo drama filled. So thank you Eden Finley for not going there.
I've wanted Jet's book from the get-go. And it definitely didn't disappoint.
Sad to see this series come to an end but what a great way to go out (extended epilogue/book 6 aside).
Can't wait to see what EF does next.
there's a lot of things working against this book, not all of which are the book's fault. i started reading this book and then set it aside midway thru to read Junkie by Cambria Hebert. which was my favorite MM romance of the year and probably one of my favorite MM romances of all time. so circumstances were kind of working against Hat Trick. but... i probably wouldn't have set down Hat Trick in the first place had it been attention grabbing.
i think it's always tough to write ...more
I'm giving this 5 stars because someone gave it 2 stars even though I'm quite sure the book hasn't even been written by Eden yet, so I don't really get the rating? Why do people do this?
I'm sure once I've actually read it someday at the end of 2019 it will still be a 5 star book, so...
I really enjoyed the writing style and fell in love with all the characters in this series. It was a real pleasure to revisit all the couples. They are different but special in their own way.
I was looking forward to this one, because I was super curious about Jet and Soren. I have to admit I didn't really feel the 10 years age gap between them.
Jet is the lead singer of a band. He's always on the road, opening the concerts for a bigger ...more
Loved the 1st half!
We got the boys in Fiji
Fun on jet skis
Then it draaaaaaaaged
Towards the end it picked up
With how the ef do we make this work
And a song
I love this “gay brigade” and am sad to see them go.
Not a standalone by any means!
My rec? Not my favorite of the series, but definitely fun!
I'm kind of sad that this was the last book in the "Fake Boyfriend" series so I tried to read slowly and make it last longer. I wasn't very effective though. I basically inhaled this story!
Jet is the younger brother of Matt, one of the MCs from Trick Play, he's a singer and his band is one step away from hitting stardom.
Soren is the hockey player that came out in Deke and a close friend of Matt's.
Those two have a common social circle but they also have a secret from three years ago so ...more
What a fantastic end to an outstanding series! In Hat Trick, we finally got Soren's and Jet's story. Their story is deliciously angsty, swoony, and sexy.
What I loved:
-Soren. He's 33, nearing the end of his hockey career, and coming off a breakup from his long term boyfriend. I loved Soren, his loyalty, and his selflessness. He seriously made me swoon.
-Jet. He's a 23-year-old up and coming musician. Jet wears his heart on his sleeve.
-I loved how Eden Finley covered their entire history. We got ...more
I really enjoyed all the other books in this series, but Jet and Soren left me a bit … cold.
Jet was such a sassy and interesting character in the earlier books, but despite the snark we get from him here, I just didn’t get the same vibes as before.
Soren seems to be mainly driven by lust and the fact that he came out because one of Jet’s songs is one of his main reasons why he fancies him. Which I find a teeny odd. Is that all it takes?
A lot was ...more
Shoot me now. Ugh, ugh, ugh. I’m going to try to do this as quick and painlessly as possible.
I didn’t like this. Like my rating says, it was ok but still, for me, a huge disappointment. I know I am going to be in the minority and most of you probably feel a little like this right now towards me…
Put your pitchforks away, you can’t love them all and the end of this series was a huge letdown for me. I was looking forward to this book, a lot. When I finished Blindsided ...more
This is Jet and Soren's story.
3 years after their one night stand the two reunite unexpectedly in Fiji. Turns out there was more feelings behind that one night stand which left them avoiding each other for years. Now face to face again attraction reemerges. However, both are recently mending broken hearts
Which question is what they feel a rebound or something more?
In the end they call their love epic but I'm not sure it really was. It was cute but didn't quite hit the mar ...more
Jet and Soren were just such a compelling pair. The use of flashbacks worked brilliantly to give the reader insight into the single previous encounter they'd had before each knew who the other was and the chemistry and connection between them was palpable.
From the moment they meet again on Fiji to the absolutely brilliant Epilogue, Jet and Soren ...more
I have been waiting very eagerly to read this book for a long time now and I’ve probably spent that last week checking my kindle religiously to see if the ARC had arrived. So when I finally saw the email in my inbox, I was ecstatic and had to read it immediately. And here I am a few hours later, very happy that it was a lot of fun but also sad that this awesome series has almost come to an end.
One thing I’m always sure I’ll get in an Eden Finley book is a lot of laughs and ...more
So, JET !!! Finally, hehehe. Jet is now 23, still full of energy, has an innocent face with a big mouth. And his musical career is taking very, very well. But touring and being under the thumbs of his label is taking a huge toll. Needing a break, he flies to Fidji to spend a few days with his br ...more
I've been waiting years for Jet and Soren's book. Ok, ok, not even a full year because I read the rest of the series earlier in the year. But it felt like years because I wanted their story SO bad. And I knew it would end up being my favorite. Sorry Matt and Noah, you've been demoted to second place. Below is an actual photo of me as I read it.
I was thinking about the many reasons I loved this book so much. One of the biggest is that Jet popped into the series early in book two. ...more
Edited: September 2019.
So the blurb is up...not an MMM
Still have to read it though.
So, I know I said I wanted an MMM but after reading this I know it just wouldn’t have worked with these characters. This was a fitting end to the series but I’m happy to hear there’s one final book of epilogues coming out soon to update us on all the couples.
Soren and Jet were such a good match. The flashbacks to their first night together and subsequent encounte ...more
I really liked this. Equal parts sweet and hot. The potential for the drama llama to trample all over this book was fairly high, but I'm ever so thankful to Eden Finley for keeping that bitch locked up.
Both guys are dealing with some heartache and are at a crossroads in their careers, but they came out the other side filling that emptiness and loneliness they felt with unconditional support, lots of humor and snark, and whole hell of a lot of passion and love.
