My Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
After my divorce, I’m ready to have fun, date around, and not get into anything serious. Then I meet Gabe Crosby, superhero firefighter and a disgrace to the Crosby name. He doesn’t even like hockey!
Yet, there’s a draw to him I can’t deny—something I haven’t felt since my teens. But that’s the problem. I have no idea what dating is like, let alone how to do it with another man. He makes me flakey and nervous, and I’ve never been that guy.
Gabe turns me inside out and upside down in the best possible ways. I only recently became single, but if I continue to chase after him, I might not stay that way for long.
When I meet Aleksander Emerson during an emergency call-out, there are three things that catch my attention: his sexy tattoos, his kind eyes, and his drunken offer to have my babies.
He’s new to Seattle and recently divorced, so I take him under my wing–and under my sheets. I’m showing him what the world of hookups is like, only those hookups turn into sleepovers and dates and public displays of jealousy.
Aleks is in his casual era, and I’m working my way toward settling down and starting a family. What the two of us have is fun, but not a good idea permanently.
Too bad Aleks has already set my life on fire.
Foolish Puckboy is the newest installment in the fun Puckboy series by Eden Finley and Saxon James. This time we follow newly-divorced Aleks and firefighter Gabe, who both have different outlooks on life, but still end up in each other’s paths again and again. Unsurprisingly, this book was a lot of fun with cringe-worthy, but hilarious moments, interspersed with sweet and heart-melting interactions.
Aleks and Gabe’s chemistry is instantaneous, and while neither can deny their attraction to the other, Aleks is more hesitant to pursue it. Since he married his high school sweetheart, he’s never had a relationship outside of his wife, and he’s a little unsure of where to start, or even if he wants something serious so soon. So Gabe, being the empathetic guy he is, promises to slow things down and take it at Aleks’s pace.
Even though Aleks wants to take things slowly, though, he can’t deny his ever growing feelings for Gabe the more they hang out with each other. I absolutely loved their relationship! Because they decide to start out slow, we get to see them build a strong base of friendship that they slowly build upon romantically. Which I am a sucker for. These two are so sweet! They genuinely care for each other and want the best for the other. They plan extravagant dates and spend time doing what the other loves because it makes them happy. The affection Aleks and Gabe show to each other had my heart melting! They are so tender and wholesome and I loved them.
Not gonna lie, it took me a moment to realize that we’ve seen Gabe before (in the Husband Hoax by Saxon James), but the moment he said he had five crazy ex-roommates it clicked for me. I was so excited to get a cameo of Gabe’s roommates since I loved their chaotic but wholesome found family dynamic in the Husband Hoax. Having them and the Queer Collective in the same book was insane but amazing. I was living for it!
Overall, I really loved this book and had so much fun with it. I devoured it in a single sitting and already can’t wait for the next installment.
