Review: THE CAD AND THE CO-ED by L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid!


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

My Review: This was soooooo cute! I heard so much talk about The Hooker and the Hermit a little while ago, so I bought it, read it instantly, and loved it. But I think I like The Cad and the Co-ed even more! Bryan is such a sweetie - or at least, he turns out to be. Bryan in the very beginning, well... what a jerk. I think what I liked the best about this book was how awkward Bryan and Eilish are - not just with each other, but in general. Bryan is still learning himself after becoming sober, and Eilish hasn't had much of an adult social life. I can't tell you the amount of times I chuckled out loud because of Eilish's inability to speak normally, or Bryan's old-man behavior. And the obsession with keeping plants alive! I loved it.

You know me, I love the drama - and the drama that evolved between Eilish and Bryan felt completely natural. The awkward misunderstandings gave way to massively difficult situations, and I could actually feel how upset the characters were that things had gotten so out of hand. L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid know how to write some genuine, believable, and lovable characters. Now excuse me while I go buy The Player & The Pixie because I need, need, need it!

Cover Lovin': I love the covers for this series. They work great as a whole, and are definitely eye catching on their own. 

Recommendation: You don't have to read the rest of the series before picking this one up, but you'll want to! 

Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)! I loved this so much. I stayed up way too late one night finishing it, and it was the first thing I reached for the next morning. I absolutely cannot wait for more by these authors, and I'm 100% going back to read The Player and the Pixie, which I somehow managed to miss!

Happy Reading!

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?
