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.
Sexy, steamy and fun!
This is a provocative tale between the cocky, green-eyed, well-hung Blake who is looking for a good time, not a long time, after being burned in the past, and the loyal, modest, wedding planner turned nursing student Jess who is desperately trying to start again and find herself.
The writing is well done. The supporting characters include the lovable and charming Jamie and Wes from the “Him” series. And the plot is a sultry mix of familial dynamics, blistering chemistry, suggestive dirty talk, blossoming romance, as well as a little sneak peek into what it’s like to be the wife/girlfriend of a professional athlete.
What more can I say. When two of the most popular, successful authors of a genre collaborate you get a highly entertaining, lighthearted, scrumptious read that you’ll devour.
Good Boy is the first book in the “WAGS” series and the second book in the series, STAY, is due out in mid June.
Good Boy is due to be published on January 31, 2017.
