book-blurbTHE 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.


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.


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?

Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

my-review5 Stars

I loved the first two books in this series and I was dying to get my hands on another hot rugby player’s story from this rock star writing duo.  I was so freaking excited!!  It felt like I had been anticipating The Cad and the Co-Ed for forever!

And they didn’t disappoint!! I absolutely loved Bryan. Sexy, charming and engaging – Bryan was everything I want from my leading man. However, he wasn’t always the catch he currently is. He was the teams resident bad boy with a serious drinking problem. It almost destroyed his career and it definitely hampered a potential future relationship with Eilish.

Eilish is Sean’s cousin (Bryan’s team mate and the star of The Player and the Pixie – another fantastic romance just as an FYI).  Anyway, Eilish gave her virginity to Bryan. She thought it was the most magical night ever and the start of a beautiful relationship. That is until he opened his hung over mouth and hurt her.  But don’t worry – Bryan give her something to treasure always – her son, Patrick.

The book jumps forward almost five years from that point and in the present, Bryan and Eilish reconnect.  And holy hell, the attraction and lust is still simmering right below boil between Eilish and Bryan.  The tension and passion knocked my panties off!  However, it’s not all milk and cookies with these two.  They have several secrets standing in their way of a happily ever after.  It’s a bit of an up hill journey to find their way.

The end result is a fabulous second chance romance that rocked my world.  I was consumed by this couple.  I found myself up in the middle of the night devouring page after page of their emotional and engaging love story.  It’s a must read romance.

So go now.  Get a copy of this book, The Cad and the Co-Ed is truly an amazing book.
