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.*

4.5 Stars!

I'm so happy that I finally looked past my "meh" feelings of the first book in this series. Book 2 was fabulous and book 3 is continuing the trend. With Brian often inebriated during his cameos in book 2, he didn't seem like book hero material. Yet, this author duo turned that idea on it's head and created the perfect platform for redemption. Although this book is labeled a rom-com, I couldn't help but feel emotional towards Brian and his sobriety. The issue of addiction was handled well and not overwrought. The wittiness in The Cad and the Co-Ed was the perfect counterbalance to the emotional tug of the story line. With the second book in the Rugby Series being a favorite, it was a delicious bonus having Eilish's cousin Sean Cassidy play a significant role in this book, as well. His scenes were some of my favorite.

The Narrators from the previous book return in this one and are again fabulous. I love the Irish accents. I could listen to them all day.

Story: Good Romantic Fun-Narration: Not Fun At All

Loved the story. Characters follow the usual meet, fast love, unforseen problem, secret baby (in this case), 2nd chance meeting, mixed-messages, problem, problem resolved, reunion, and HEA. I don't feel I'm giving away anything, those of us who read romances know the drill. It is the character development, genre of story, style of sex and love, and actions moving towards resolution to HEA that each author creates that brings us back. This author has a way with words that provide interesting back stories written with witty and amusing dialogue.

My problem was with both narrators - neither had consistant or realistic Irish accents; Male sounded older than 30 years old, which gave a bit of a creep factor, and he did not pull off any of the others characters with, exception of older bitchy mother, any distinction. His girl sounded like all the other guys; Female sounded like older woman rather than girl to young woman being portrayed, and her male voices were ok, but not terribly believable. So this made the listen tolerable but not as enjoyable as previous books in the series.

The one odd thing I found annoying IMO was the heroine having an internal "Dah, dah, dah, don" bad horror movie musical expression that came off as forced humor and interrupting scene instead of enhancing.

Part of Romance Package so worked for me, I would been on the line of whether it was a worth the credit. But I do not have time to read so glad to listen and keep up with series.

So I'm Into Rugby Now

Who knew Rugby players were so awesome. This story was the best in the series but also the most frustrating. Two stubborn people for main characters. The story is very well written and well narrated. Just a warning though. Very explicit and steamy sex scenes!

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.
