Good Boy by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy….Review


Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.

Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.

But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear


My Review:

Good Boy is the newest work from the writing team of Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen.   I knew from the cover and synopsis alone I was going to love this book and, oh boy, I was not disappointed!

From the very beginning, Blake stole my heart.  His fun witted, sexy banter with Jess was off the charts fun and I loved him.  He’s like a big kid in a way an it was beyond endearing to me.  He’s quirky and loyal and kind and sexy and I couldn’t get enough.  Jess was also a really lovable character with a great head on her shoulders and, even though it takes her some time to find her path in life, is one determined cookie.

Together the fun banter and sexual tension was off the charts hot and I ate it up with a spoon!  I knew Jess would be worn down by Blake’s signature brand of flirting (I mean I don’t think anyone could hold out on him!) and when she was, man it was smoking hot.

If you’re looking for a fun, sexy read, this is definitely a must read for you! Thank you Ms. Kennedy and Ms. Bowen for a fab read!
