The Cad and the Co-Ed (Rugby #3) by L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid


Third book in the USA Today Bestselling Romantic Comedy Series

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 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?

5 out of 5 stars

Can be read as a standalone

This is a must read!!!!! I laughed. I cried. I freaking ran into walls because I couldn't put this down!

Eilish Cassidy has a secret. She has a 4-year-old son, and the father is Bryan Leech. The only other person that knows the identity of the boy's father is Eilish's cousin, Sean.

She refuses to tell Bryan because of his history. A reckless playboy with an issue with alcohol. He doesn't even remember having sex with Eilish because he was so wasted that night.

When Sean helps her get an internship as a physiotherapist for the rugby team, she is forced to see Bryan almost everyday. And the guilt for keeping her son away from his biological father weighs her down.

As a recovering alcoholic, Bryan has been clean for almost 2 years. His crazy life turned into a boring one. So when news about his son come to light, his life has a new purpose.

Bryan and Eilish can't ignore the attraction, but the two have some serious issues. Eilish is scared about a custody battle if things get ugly. And Bryan is scared of women that take advantage of him.

I wish this could be a movie. I loved all the hilarious moments and cute romantic scenes. And this story also had the perfect amount of steaminess.
