Publisher's Summary

Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls.

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 19 or still in college at 24. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she's finally managed 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?

4 The Cad and the Co-Ed Stars

Ok so I really wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. I knew the players but I wasn’t really invested until about chapter 5ish. Bryan is a player on the team that Sean and Ronan play on and he is the “Cad” a player a womanizer. Who finds time self-drunk a lot and well he doesn’t remember most of that time in his life. He is now reformed and in AA.

Eilish is Sean’s cousin we meet her in book 2 a little bit, and she and Bryan hit it off only he doesn’t remember.

And well things happen and a few years later now that Bryan is sober, she has somethings she needs to tell him.

It really is a great story of strength and overcoming for both of them.
I do think my favorite part was getting to see Sean take on the brother roll for Eilish. I really liked Sean’s book and it felt natural that he was in this one the way that he was.

Great narration I am a huge fan of the accents swoon worthy right there!

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

A different kind of second chance

The Cad and The Co-Ed is the third book of the Rugby Series, it features the story of Bryan Leech and Eilish Cassidy. Five years ago they met at a wedding—at Annie and Ronan’s wedding to be exact—and a night that was perfect for Eilish, full of flirtation, dancing, kissing and making love, it was “another one night stand” for Bryan, and sadly Eilish had her reality check the morning after with a hangovered Bryan, more like a grumpy bastard Bryan, who didn’t even remember her name. But to be honest, this wasn’t the peak of what comes for Eilish, because a few months later she found out that she’s pregnant, from that ONE time she had sex with Bryan and that’s when her life literally went to hell. Kind of. But she put her big girl panties on, kept the baby and went on with her new adult life away from her toxic family, all by herself in the United States.

Five years later, she’s back in Ireland thanks to the help of her dear cousin Sean Cassidy #GuardianAngelFTW and started a new job as physio of the rugby team, where THE Bryan Leech worked at, and… this is how this story starts.

There are so many things I loved about this book. The beautiful descriptive writing, the little angst within this romantic comedy story, the loyalty and friendship among all the characters. Literally everything. But what really got me was the complexity of the characters, the good ones were awesome and perfect and beautiful, and the bad ones are despicable, and I loved to hate them so much. I felt so related to Eilish and Bryan at the same time. They went through a lot before their paths finally collided and all that made them grow and see life differently and be ready to be in a healthy, beautiful and steady relationship, that was exactly what Patrick needed.

Patrick, oh little funny and sweet Patrick. You stole my heart with your Pokemon chasing, your playing ball, your excitement over Bryan and in the end *teary eyes* I loved how you took everything in the end. I think you need your own book when you are a teenager, maybe early twenties because I need you in my book boyfriend collection. #BestFictionalChild ever!!

And the narration was flawless. George Allan and KC Sheridan's accents and inflections made me love this audio so much!!

I could go on about how much I loved this book, but I won’t. Because, seriously, my words won’t do any justice to this amazing book. I’m glad I finally read these two amazing authors, and I will for sure be reading them for a long long time.

Can't stop listening

I believe that this is my favorite in the series, the story was so good and the narrators were awesome.

Got me laughing like a loon while I'm walking in the street. Felt like crying too when the situation calls for it.

Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway are brilliant in their own respective way of writing, and they're story together was just perfect.

The narrators had a very engaging voices (not the gritty, scratchy like that made me want to stop listening and distracts me from liking the story itself) and have a complete understanding and delivery of the H/h's feelings. Be it, excitement, anger, frustration, and let's not forget about the tension...

Highly recommended to everyone.
😊

Favourite of the series

The Cad and the Co-ed by LH Cosway & Penny Reid (Audio Edition)
Narrated by George Allan, KC Sheridan
Series: Rugby Book 3

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This may be my favourite of the series.. though I think that was in large part to the fantastic job the narrators did. Even though George Allen narrated the other books, he really pulled out all the stops on this one. I felt all the feels, desperation, longing, heartache, love. What a great end to the trilogy!

A lovely addition to the series

I've had mixed feelings about the previous books in this series, and to be honest I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. Bryan Leech was not a particularly nice person in book 2 and I was not expecting him to redeem himself in book 3. I am however glad to report, he did, he became so likeable that I began to question if he was the same drunk obnoxious user from previous books. Eilish Cassidy (cousin to Sean) was a lovestruck teenager who lost her virginity to her idol, Bryan Cassidy, unbeknownst to her, he was extremely drunk and remembered absolutely nothing of the night. The next morning he practically threw her out of the room. An extremely hurt and naive Eilish left without a backward glance. Unfortunately for both of them nature took its course and the story takes off when Eilish lands a physio job on the rugby team in Ireland after spending the first four years of her son’s life in America supported by her cousin. Well written with some quite emotional scenes we follow Eilish and Bryan as they come to terms with dating, love, and an adorable red haired, green eyed boy, who for me stole the show. I loved the characters, even though at times I thought Eilish was a little harsh, and extremely stubborn. Lovely writing, lovely story. Even though I disliked the narrator's in the previous book, I loved the same narrators in this story and I have no idea why, maybe they just fit the characters better.

Just ok

KC Sheridan does a great job with all voices. George Allen is good for the male parts, but doesn't do a female voice well at all.

The story was just ok. But I supposed I could have figured that out by reading the synopsis.
