Publisher's Summary

Ezra

Partying, dudes, and hockey. What more could a gay NHL player want?

If it weren't for Anton Hayes, my life would be perfect.

Not that he affects my life in any way. At all. That would imply I care what the winger from Philly thinks of me.

Which I don't.

Not even a one-night stand with him can thaw his misplaced animosity toward me.

He says I'm the one with the ego, but he can talk. He rivals me for most egotistical puck boy in the league.

I hate him as much as he hates me. Even if I crave a repeat.

Anton

When it comes to hockey, I'm all about the game.

I've worked for years to be one of the best in the league, and l've done it without splashing my orientation all over the tabloids.

My hockey image is one I've carefully cultivated, and after one night with Ezra Palaszczuk, I risk it all.

He's cocky, obnoxious, and has an ego bigger than Massachusetts. And okay, maybe he's the sexiest man I've ever known.

We'll never get along. Not when we sleep together. Not even when my possessive streak awakens.

That doesn't stop us from falling into bed together over and over again.

As a queer reader

It's heteronormative, but light fun.

As someone who is queer I couldn't help feeling low-key annoyed throughout the whole story about how often monogamy is emphasised as the only legitimate loving and committed shape a relationship can take. Especially with a character like Ezra, who reads as almost aromantic, or at least non-monogamous himself. I know I've had this problem with these writers before, but at least monogamy made sense with the other characters. With Ezra it made it obvious how heteronormative the writing was, you know? He can just like sex with multiple people, he doesn't need to be damaged and then healed by steady monogamy. The conversation he has with his ex and bff about how they should've known it wasn't serious because he didn't feel jealous and possessive tipped my annoyance into real anger.

There is nothing wrong with monogamy, but the way possessiveness is valorized is often a Romance red flag for me and why I prefer queer romance generally, so I felt the need to write this in case it's anyone else's tipping point.

love it

I seem to have fallen into a hole I don't want to get out of. I started listening to this series with book two first because it was on my tik tok fyp and I have ended up absolutely obsessed. puckboys, fake boyfriends, pop stars and mike bravo. all worth well and truly more then it cost to buy them. can't even remember how many times I've listened to it.

When your rival becomes your teammate!

Egotistical Puckboy is book 1 in the Puckboys series and is linked to Eden and Saxon’s previous series Fake Boyfriend & CU Hockey. While each couple has their own story, characters do appear and are mentioned from previous books.

Ezra is the typical arrogant, obnoxious an ego driven athlete. Anton is the confident rule follower. They’re rivals, until they’re forced to play on the same team. Ezra and Anton have that hate filled rival chemistry. Juvenile pranks are hilarious. Tit for tat is very frat house, but I loved it. Throw in the hate filled sex and it really was an enjoyable read.

I never used to read a lot sports romance until I stumbled onto Fake Boyfriends and now it’s one of my favourite genres within MM romance. If you haven’t started your journey into Eden and Saxon’s books now is the time!!
