THE CAD

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.

THE CO-ED

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 to 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.

THE PLAN

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?

MY REVIEW

 

Holding the reign as a bad boy can be a ‘hard’ reputation to uphold. Just ask Bryan Leech. As the resident playboy on his rugby team, Bryan certainly doesn’t have the mindset for being serious about anything except the game. During a wedding for a fellow teammate, Bryan hooks up with Eilish. The smitten beauty was head over hills over the notorious playboy. Little did she know that the light of day would bring out the Bryan who couldn’t remember what he did before consuming so much alcohol. A devastating blow for anyone that thought time with Bryan was ‘special’.

Five years pass and Eilish still thinks of that night with Bryan. Eilish’s constant reminder looks her back in the face each time she spends time with her son. That one night spent with Bryan left Eilish becoming a mother at a very early age, but Patrick is the light in her life. Eilish has spent the last five years getting much needed support from her cousin Sean Cassidy. Even though Sean was Bryan’s teammate, he never revealed the secret that Eilish kept from Bryan.

Now Bryan has straightened up his act. No more drinking and spending his nights with ‘nameless’ women. Eilish finds herself hired on by the same team that Bryan and Sean play Rugby for. As the two are thrown together once again. Bryan still has no recollection of the night he spent with Eilish, but definitely feels some type of connection to her. As they tiptoe around one another, their attraction becomes harder and harder to fight. Now the secret that Eilish has been keeping for years slowly starts to unravel. The only question is what will happen with Bryan when he discovers he has a son that he has never known?

Oh boy….I couldn’t wait to read the Cad and The Co-Ed!! Readers are faced with quite the story plot in the third book of the series. A love affair that produces a child, and the father is kept in the dark for FIVE years!! You heard correctly…..this story goes for the gusto!!

The characters have so much laid at their feet. Eilish has her first sexual experience turn into a lifetime of responsibility. Even at a young age, Eilish always made remarkable decisions for her son in spite of her family’s disapproval. Then watching Bryan go from playboy to the neighbor that couldn’t stand loud music after 10 pm was a treat. You couldn’t help but feel for Bryan deep in your heart. The anticipation over how Bryan would react to Patrick kept me glued to my reader!! The chemistry between Eilish and Bryan was spot on!!

There are also cameos from your favorite players from the team. I look forward to finding out more about each of these intriguing characters. I have loved every single book in the series!! Grab a copy today and discover why this author duo dazzles so many with their wit, story plots, and amazing characters!
