The Cad and The Co-Ed, a quirky and sexy romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is available now!!
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 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.
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?

This book surprised the hell out of me, and I mean that in the best way possible. I really was not expecting these authors to deliver a Hero like Bryan, but they did and I loved it. He wasn't your badboy Hero that partied and slept around until he met the heroine. He was a changed man who was trying to heal from his past demons and actually led a pretty boring life. I found him charming in a weird way and it was adorable how he was fumbling and a little awkward with Eilish.
After the first chapter, which is Eilish and Bryan's one night together, this story is told fully in the present time. I was very happy there weren't any time jumps in this book because they would not have flowed with the story at all. So I loved that L.H and Penny kept this story one of moving forward from your past, instead of going back to it. Getting to see Bryan and Eilish grown up and a lot more mature than that first chapter really spoke to how much they had both changed, and they become great characters. Both were very well developed and we got to see them putting their fears behind them which was great.
I honestly don't want to say too much about this story, not because there were any big shockers, but just because I think the emotions that you will feel while reading this story are ones that you should experience with no prior knowledge of them. You may think this is just a simple contemporary but it is far from that and I think most people will share the connection with these characters that I did.
I will say though, don't let the pregnancy thing scare you. I'm not a fan of hidden babies but these authors handled that situations so well I was more than okay with it. I've actually never read a book with that plot where I didn't have issues with that before, so these authors did what I thought was the impossible. Bottom line, please read this book! It can be read as a standalone if you haven't tried this series before, though I highly recommend the other books too.
Again these authors have done and amazing job. This book was just brilliant. After the lil teaser that was in the last book. I needed to know how things went for Eilish and Bryan after the way it was left. I wasn't disappointed. I found that Bryan's character was just totally different than I though he would be which was good. Eilish is stronger than I thought she would be. She kept her cool even being so close to Byran who is so sexy. He has big muscles tattoos and is a sports man I could of asked for more he is just sexy and funny as well. I really enjoyed this book. I hope we get more from these big rugby guys I d luv more of William. There is something about him I just want more of him. I luvd getting more of Sean with him being Eilish cousin. I enjoyed this story but I did find that it dragged a lil in the middle but overall it was great and I would recommend this book and the rest of the series.
