MY RATING: 5 STARS
Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.
Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.
But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?
Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear
Let’s start saying that my reading time is at night, in bed. And this time my husband didn’t like me to read. Every page I read there were loud laughing and giggling.
Blake and Jess, the two main characters, are funny and super sweet and sexy!
If you have read HIM and US, you have already met Blake and Jess. Blake is Wes’ teammate and Jess is Jamie’s sister. In these books it’s clear that something is going on between the two.
And in Good Boy we have their story.
Blake is always the funny boy, he lives his life at full speed, and he seems to have no seriousness … except when it comes to Jess. I loved his positive approach to life and love and his determination to reach his goals.
“…because Blake doesn’t do anything half-assed. He laughs the way he lives his life – loud and fierce and without inhibition. He fucks that way, too.”
Now is it clear who Blake is?
Jessica, on the other hand, is in a phase of her life where she feels and sees herself as a failure. No jobs seem to be the right ones, no choices seem to be right, and having fun and a relationship with Blake is not what she’s looking for at the moment. But when she thinks to have finally found her way, nothing and no one is stopping her. She’s stubborn and determined to reach her goal.
But who can resist to a guy like Blake? Impossible!
“A date with me is like a trip to Disneyland. You’d fucking love it. Because everyone loves Disneyland.”
CHEEZUS! You MUST read this funny, sweet and sexy (very sexy!) romance. And, useless to say, Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy have created a new super series!
“Wow. You aim high, huh?” (- Jess)“For the stars, babe. Always aim for the stars.” (- Blake)
