 My musings…

4 Second Chance CROWNS

I love collaborations between Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway! The writing is smart, witty, and unique, and The Cad and the Co-Ed is another great addition to this series of standalones.

Readers will adore Bryan, well the reformed Bryan.  The old one is everything the synopsis says he is.  The new Bryan though is more controlled, more aware of his weaknesses, and he actively steers clear of these traps that would hurt him.  What he isn’t prepared for is his biggest weakness, Eilish and her son Patrick, but they become a different weakness for him.  They become something to motivate him and to keep him on the straight and narrow.  Bryan really earns reader allegiance when her secret is revealed, and readers get to see how accepting he is and how much loves, resulting in readers wanting him to get that HEA with the two of them.

Eilish will earn readers’ undying respect.  What she has dealt with in regards to her family and her age when getting pregnant makes her an amazing woman, even at such a young age.  She is strong, sometimes stubborn, and her capacity to love and even forgive is wonderful.

The story chronicles their journey back together and forming a new family. I love the pacing and progression of their relationship.  What I truly love about the book is that Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway present an accurate and reasonable reaction to the Eilish’s secret being revealed.  The care they take with integrating Bryan, the connection between Patrick and Bryan, and Eilish and Bryan’s progression as a couple is all very real. The insecurities felt by the couple are believable, leading to a conflict that is also true to the development of the story.  Finally, the resolution of the story, particularly that epilogue will just warm readers’ hearts.

Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway have, yet again, delivered another excellent romance, that will make readers laugh and swoon as they see another rugby player fall in love.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.



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?
