The Cad and the Co-Ed (Rugby #3)
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 remembe ...more

Once again, Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway co-wrote a book that simply warmed my heart. If you’re a fan of these two authors and if you enjoyed the two previous installments in the series as much as I did, then you don’t want to miss this one. Trust me! This book is wonderful! This third installment is everything. A fantastic mix of humor, romance, but also heat, 'The Cad and the Co-ed', made me smile and grin the entire time. These two authors did a brilliant job with every single aspec...more
Penny Reid and LH Cosway have this special talent when it comes to co-writing. Their words flow so fantastically and their stories are always unique and wonderful. The Cad and the Co-Ed is the third book in this series and has a troupe that is one of my least favorite things to read about it. Usually, this type of book bothers me so much I spend my whole review ranting about something or another, but somehow, these authors made both the characters lovable and the story worked. It didn ...more
Just for a moment. I breathed him in and he smelled…fantastic. Familiar. He smelled like my dreams. And he felt too good to be true.
THE CAD AND THE CO-ED is the third standalone installment of the Rugby series and it was just as amazing as the first two books! The writing collaboration between Cosway & Reid is beyond stellar!! I just can’t get enough of this wonderful series and incredible characters!!

Ok, when I read the blurb for this book, I had to take a moment and try to figure out how Cosway and Reid where going to make all of this work. I mean, come on...
You had Bryan Leech...we already knew him as a playboy, wild man and thoughtless jerk.
Then you had Eilish Cassidy, who had a tryst with Bryan, and then never told him he had a son...
How could they make these two wrongs....a right...
Well, I can testify, somehow Cosway and Reid made these ...more

Bryan Leech and Eilish Cassidy had one night full of passion. She woke up with stars in her eyes with youth's silly, naive hope for happily ever after. As a teen, she'd developed a crush, placed his posters in her bedroom, and foolishly believed that he now felt their connection. Well...he didn't. He was just a cad. A sexy, charming ( ...more

From the moment you open this book you are hit in the heart with an explosion of awesomeness. This novel solidifies the top spot this series holds, on my favorite books shelf . The Cad And The Coed will succeed in providing the reader with a heavy dose of beautiful romance, endless fun, and a truly inspiring plot.
Bryan Leech and Eilish Cassidy get tangle up in a beautiful, and hot one night stand. When the morning comes, Eilish is certain in her heart that she has found t ...more
This book surprised the hell out of me, and I mean that in the best way possible. I really was not expecting these authors to deliver a Hero like Bryan, but they did and I loved it. He wasn't your badboy Hero that partied and slept around until he met the heroine. He was a changed man who was trying to heal from his past demons and actually led a pretty boring life. I found him charming in a weird way and it was adorable how he was fumbling and a little awkward with Eilish. ...more
Showing bravery and strength when your world falls apart.
I’ll be honest, when I first became a parent I LOST THE PLOT!! Not a little but a whole lotta. There was one thing that got me through…my hubby. I cannot imagine doing it alone and yet I know that there are a lot of women and men who face parenting alone. By choice, or by being forced into the situation you can either step up and attempt to get through or you don’t. In The Cad and the Co-Ed we meet a brave and strong woman who not only att ...more
Yup. It hit me. Right. In. The. Feels. More than I was expecting.
Honestly I was nervous. I hadn't even read the synopsis before starting this, so when I discovered it was a second chance romance (something I'm a picky bitch about), I was a little worried. And while there were a few things I didn't love, overall I really enjoyed this one!

It’s no secret that I am a HUGE Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway fan. Seriously, these two have teamed up to write one of the best romantic sports series that I am totally smittened and obsessed with. And in their newest installment to the Rugby Series, Reid and Cosway has readers like myself swooning for Bryan Leech as he tries to win the heart and trust of the mother of his son, Eilish Cassidy in The Cad and the Co-Ed.

Eilish Cassidy spent one wonderful, beautiful, night with the man of her dreams, fullback for the Irish National Rugby team, Bryan Leech. She was 19, & it was the most meaningful experience of her life. She'd been infatuated with him for years & he was her fantasy come true. Only problem was the next morning he didn't remember a thing.
To make her situation even worse Eilish finds out she's pregnant & is then cut off from her family. The only person she has is her cousin Se ...more
In my heart of hearts, I’d hoped that I’d made some impression.
Crazy and stupid and selfish, right?
He hadn’t. He hadn’t remembered me at all. I was . . . completely and utterly forgettable.
Damn if Eilish didn't break my heart just a little with her sad memories of her first encounter with Bryan, drunk rugby player and manwhore extraordinaire.
In general, I loved the feels and emotions this book brought on. Eilish's predicament had me tearing u ...more
OMG – the blurb hooked me instantly. I love reformed bad boys. Even more if they struggled and overcame an obstacle of immense proportions. And Bryan had done that – and so much more.
I just LOVD Bryan.
After a drunken night, totally wasted Bryan couldn’t remember a thing, especially not the starry-eyed girl who he spent a passionate night with.
Eilish, pretty quickly realized what happened and couldn’t escape fast enough, just to find out that her night with THE Bryan Leec ...more
About the plot: It was a one night at Ronan and Annie (first part) wedding. Bryan seduced her and broke her heart, not even remembering her name the other day. That night Eilish not only lost her innocence but got pregnant. Terrified she decided to flee the country, but after 5 years difficulties forced her to accept her cousin, Sean (second part) help and r ...more
I'm actually not a fan of the Surprise! You're a dad! trope, but I am a huge fan of rugby players, Irish fellas, strong heroines and more recently Penny Reid's writing so couldn't wait to dive in and see what lay in store. And I have to say Penny's collaboration with L.H Cosway worked hugely for me: as far as I'm concerned, th ...more

Again these authors have done and amazing job. This book was just brilliant. After the lil teaser that was in the last book. I needed to know how things went for Eilish and Bryan after the way it was left. I wasn't disappointed. I found that Bryan's character was just totally different than I though he would be which was good. Eilish is stronger than I thought she would be. She kept her cool even being so close to Byran who is so sexy. He has big muscles ta ...more
Did I think this would work? Hell no.
Did I read it anyway? Hell yes.
Was it worth the read? Abso-fu$king-lutely. Although not was all rainbows and unicorns here. Well for me anyway. Different strokes in all that jazz.
5 Karma is a Wanker Stars.
Our Hero/heroine had one passionate night at Ronan and Annie’s wedding. One problem? Ah Bryan is a bit fuzzy on the details. Okay fuzzy is an understatement but just go with it.

Rugby star and reformed bad boy Bryan Leech has a problem. After two years of sobriety and lack of interest in the opposite sex he’s inexplicably taken with his team’s new physical therapist who seems to be avoiding him as though he were still a wild partying womanizer who lost huge chunks of memories due to alcohol excess when in reality his craziest nights now consist of ...more

This series is one of my favorites and Ms. Reid and Ms. Cosway are two of my favorite authors. The Cad and the Co-ed was a funny second chance romance with a twist. The twist being that Bryan, the Cad, doesn't exactly remember the first time. Years later The Cad and The Co-Ed, Eilish, reconnect and while something about Eilish seems familiar, Bryan brushes it off until reality smacks him in the face. See he's been trying to turn over a new leaf. The problem is no one is sure i ...more
I think I found a new book boyfriend in Bryan Leech. Yes, he starts off as a total dickhead—or a cad as the title indicates—but the rugby bad boy more than redeems himself. His lifestyle makes complete 180º turn, and the differences that entails are funny and sweet. I’m all for a bit of delayed gratification, but I love t ...more

I coughed, choking on nothing, and sputtered, “What? What did you say?”
“I said seduce her. And do it now. She has more unresolved feelings for you than Jennifer has for Brad.” He paused, then added, “And do a good job. Do a great job.”
I stared at him for several seconds, dumbfounded. “Of course I’ll do a great job.”
Sean pointed at me accusingly. “I’m serious. Look up some moves or watch some videos, do whatever it takes to make sure she enjoys herself.”
Now I was offended. “Fuck you, Sean. Of course she’ll enjoy herself. She’ll like it so much she’ll beg for-”
“Hey.” My teammate narrowed his eyes, slicing his hand through the air. “I don’t need or want to know the specifics. I’m just saying, take good care of her. Take excellent care of her. Give her everything she needs. And don’t be selfish.”
“I won’t be.” I shook my head with the denial, staring at Sean.
Staring at him because . . .
Did he just tell me to seduce his cousin?”
