sbpr-cad-coed-bt

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

thecadandco-edcover

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 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.

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.

What’s worse than losing everything? Try driving a phallic-shaped RV across the country with your vile womanizing coworker.

Copywriter Callie Murphy has a bad attitude, a vicious tongue, and a serious aversion to Shimura Advertising’s resident manwhore, Walker Rhodes. Know where he can stick his good looks and Southern charm? She can think of a few creative places. Avoiding him wouldn’t be a problem, except her boss threatens to fire her if she doesn’t go along with him on their RV client’s cross-country tour.

Walker is sick of his job, tired of women, and in a big old creative rut. The upcoming client road trip is just what he needs to shake things up and rediscover his lost passion. But his plans go south when his partner drops out at the last minute, and Callie, the foul-mouthed tiny terror, takes her place. Unless he can find a way to thaw his icy coworker, he’s looking at two month’s of pure hell.

On the road, they experience one hilarious misadventure after another and soon find themselves on a life-changing journey. But when their paths veer off in different directions, will they hit a dead end?

Road-Tripped is a stand-alone novel and the first book in the Ad Agency Series.

Review

My rating: 3 stars

Road-Tripped follows Callie Murphy and Walker Rhodes as they embark a journey to rediscover an upcoming client’s lost passion. Two unlikely people come together to help their respective friends and do their jobs

I loved Callie, we were introduced to her as she was plotting to rig  a bomb at her workplace – she didn’t really do it, she just added it to her ‘list’. Unfortunately for Callie she is stuck with a job where her boss (and friend), Skip, believes in partying more than working. She seems to have an extra dislike to her co-worker, Walker, and has declared him as a manwhore. What she doesn’t know is Walker isn’t all he shows to be – he hates his job and the fawning he receieves. He is close to quitting, however, he recieves an offer to go on a paid road-trip – being the perfect opportunity he takes up the offer.

Callie doesn’t seem to have much luck on her side, with the previous writer sick due to her pregnancy, Callie is forced to take her place. Walker and Callie don’t exactly start off on the right foot, however, as their journey develops so does their relationship.

Callie is a hilarious herione and Walker is a charming hero. I quite enjoyed their interactions, however, sometimes I found them a tad too immature and wished they had just cleared up their misunderstandings. I also was not too fond of how Callie seemed to hold on to her perceived notion about Walker being a manwhore for so long. Other than that, I found it to be really realisitic and relatable – I felt like I was on the road trip with them. I also loved that Nicole put a playlist with each chapter, it really brought the mood.
