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?

OMG!!! This is my FIRST READ in this series and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more! THE CAD AND THE CO-ED was so SWOON-WORTHY and it deserves more stars than I could ever dish out! I’m a goner for these characters, for this writing duo, and for this series! EVERYTHING about this book, from the book cover to the blurb, from the beginning to the end, from the characters to the witty, hilarious, and flirtatious banter they produced…EVERYTHING about this book made me INCREDIBLY HAPPY! I laughed. I cried. I SWOONED so freaking hard! Bryan and Eilish took my heart and just RAN WITH IT!

I was SO caught up in this story that for once, I didn’t highlight all the quotes I wanted to share with you! Guys! That like NEVER happens! I usually highlight the crap out of these books, but I just couldn’t even spare the second it takes to mark the damn thing! That just shows you how captivated I was with these characters and their emotional storyline. 

The MAJOR take-away from this beloved romance is that it was extremely smart and oh so sexy! It has hilarity, romance, and smokin’ hot sex scenes! It had an emotional impact on me that I didn’t see coming at all. These characters drove me mad, and yet I LOVED the hell outta them. THE CAD AND THE CO-ED was a wonderfully done romance about second chances. It incorporated TONS of laughs, an insane amount of lovin’, and so much heart that it will leave you grinning from ear to ear. I couldn’t look away once I started and I just know that every romance reader will be able to take away something special from Bryan and Eilish’s story.

Needless to say, L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid has gained yet another HUGE FAN with the release of this book! I can’t wait to see what these two come up with next!
