Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls.
Bryan Leech is a cad.
Or, he *was* a cad.
No one is quite certain.
Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.
The only problem is, no one believes him.
Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.
The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.
Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.
Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.
But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?
I swear. The Rugby series by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid just keeps getting better and more enjoyable. My heart is doing a little happy dance after reading The Cad and the Co-Ed.
I think I found a new book boyfriend in Bryan Leech. Yes, he starts off as a total dickhead—or a cad as the title indicates—but the rugby bad boy more than redeems himself. His lifestyle makes complete 180º turn, and the differences that entails are funny and sweet. I’m all for a bit of delayed gratification, but I love that the reader doesn’t have to wait until the middle of the book to see his transformation begin.
Eilish Cassidy is a very young but devoted single mom with a forgiving spirit, spine of steel, and determination in spades. Her appeal is impossible to deny. Eilish’s vulnerability, her self-sacrificing love for her child, and even her stubbornness resonated with me. Bryan’s patience and understanding are remarkable, and to say I liked his chemistry with Eilish would be an understatement. It’s their little boy, Patrick, though that completely melted my heart.
Eilish’s cousin, Sean, is every bit as delightful in this book as I remember from his story in The Player and the Pixie. There are many moments when Sean is a real scene stealer, and I loved it.
Depending on my mood, I can either be a cynical reader or a sappy romantic reader. Perhaps I was the latter, but the combination of a regretful good man, a resilient mom, and a precious four-year old left me floating on a cloud of cotton candy, with kittens, and rainbows, and chocolate, and red wine, and everything other thing I love but can’t think of right now surrounding me. That sounds stupid now that I’ve written it down, but you get the picture. I enjoyed the heck out of The Cad and the Co-Ed. I’m hoping Will’s story is next. #prettyplease
