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?

Review

My rating: 5 stars

The Cad and the Co-ed follows Eilish Cassidy and Brian Leech. Eilish and Brian met at a wedding and spent a romantic night together, but Brain didn’t remember her or their night the next morning. Eilish soon finds herself pregnant and runs cutting everyone off (except Sean, her favourite cousin). Fast-forward a few years, Eilish has graduated in physiotherapy and lands a job in Sean’s team. Guess who she has to work closely with? Brain Leech, the father of her son and the man who broke her heart. Brian has turned his life around, no more drinking and waking up without any memories.

While this trope is not a favourite of mine, I enjoyed this book a lot. A LOT. When Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway come together unicorn’s poop cupcakes. This is definitely a cupcake. I don’t know what magical writing bond these two have, but I never want to see it end. They need to forever write collaborations together.

I absolutely loved Eilish. She worked hard to provide for herself and her son, and she knew when she was in over her head she could always count on Sean (ahhh Sean). She didn’t take any bullshit from her mother or that so called friend of hers (who I could not stand). And, while she was afraid of telling Brian the truth, she did when she saw he had grown responsible and mature.

Brian, oh Brian. What can I say about you? I fell in love with you from the start. Brian hit rock bottom and instead of staying there he decided he didn’t want to and changed his life. He worked through his alcoholism and straighten his life around. And he was always there for his mother, despite her alcoholism (that could have affected him).

Brian was intrigued by Eilish the moment he met her all those years later. While Eilish tried to stay away she couldn’t. I found their story realistic and beautiful. Reid and Cosway penned down their journey beautifully. If you love a smart, funny, emotional romance this is the book to go for.

Release Blast + Review | Love Story by Lauren Layne

Over the course of one wild road trip, 
feuding childhood sweethearts get a second chance at love.
LOVE STORY
a Love Unexpectedly novel
Lauren Layne
Releasing February 14th, 2017
Loveswept

Over the course of one wild road trip, feuding childhood sweethearts get a second chance at love in this charming rom-com—a standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Good Girl.

When Lucy Hawkins receives a job offer in San Francisco, she can’t wait to spread her wings and leave her small Virginia hometown behind. Her close-knit family supports her as best they can, by handing over the keys to a station wagon that’s seen better days. The catch? The cross-country trip comes with a traveling companion: her older brother’s best friend, aka the guy who took Lucy’s virginity hours before breaking her heart.

After spending the past four years and every last dime caring for his sick father, Reece Sullivan will do just about anything to break free of the painful memories—even if it means a two-week road trip with the one girl who’s ever made it past his carefully guarded exterior. But after long days of bickering in the car turn into steamy nights in secluded motel rooms, Reece learns that, when it comes to Lucy, their story is far from over. And this time, they just might have a shot at a happy ending.

Although listed as a title in the Love Unexpectedly Series, all books in the series stand alone.

3 stars
Love Story follow Lucy and Reece – childhood sweethearts who parted ways only to be stuck on a roadtrip together. While this isn’t my favourite LL book I did enjoy it. It included one of my favourite tropes – best friends to lovers. I thoroughly enjoyed the flashbacks; it was beautiful watching them fall in love (and try to deny being in love). The roadtrip was so much fun; they had really great banter. There was a lot of angst and I am a sucker for angst – Lauren did a great job with that.
What didn’t work for me was how quickly the book ended – I needed more. I felt like I only started reading it and it ended – that may be a sign to…I don’t know maybe writing longer books. 😛 On a serious note, I did feel the end was a bit rushed and would have liked to see more angst and development. Despite this not being a favourite, LL is still one of my favourites and I will always read anything she releases.

I know. I know. I’m terrible, but I’m here now. And hopefully will do a better job at being regular. Now without further ado let’s get started on the list of books I regret not reading in 2016.

24574656

1. Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas
I have wanted to read this for the longest time and I do not have an excuse to why I have not. I think maybe it’s because I do not want to say goodbye to the characters.

2. The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Seth is my cuddle bunny, I love him to pieces. I just really wish I wasn’t lazy and read the book when it came out.

3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
I was going to read this, I really was. I was on the waiting list for it, but my local library never sent me an email or text saying it was there for me to pick up. So I not only lost my hold, I also21396155 had to pay a fine.

4. The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
I have been going crazy wanting to read this and why I have no read this is beyond me.

5. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge
I love retellings and this was one of my must read ones, but I ended up not reading it. I plan to change that this year…hopefully.

6. The Diabolic by S.J. Kinaid
In my defense I actually did start reading this, but I just never got a chance to finish it.

7. And I Darken by Kiersten White
I have been meaning to read some historical romances and I really wanted to start with this, but I never found an opportunity to.
32828290

8. The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson
I do not want to say goodbye to Lia and Rafe.

9. Up the Seine Without a Paddle by Eliza Watson.
I actually did start reading this, I believe it was sometime near or after reading week, but then I got caught up with assignments, tests, projects, and etc. I didn’t get to go back to it. I hope to change that real soon. *fingers-crossed*

10. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Ever since I read Six of Crows last spring I was craving for Crooked Kingdom, but it was released during school and I wanted to give this all my attention and binge read. Now, that doesn’t excuse the winter break and I really do not have a legitimate excuse for that, other than I was not/am not ready to say goodbye to the characters.
