Book Review, Giveaway: The Cad and the Co-Ed by Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway 1


The Cad and The Co-Ed, a quirky and sexy romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is available now!!



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?


My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:


It had been wonderful. Maybe Bryan had a magic penis. And how lucky was I? Finding a bloke with an enchanted penis for my first time. Maybe he had a purse around here someplace with endless money, or a goose that shit golden eggs. I wouldn’t be surprised if he did.


Eilish, you are not your mother. For one thing, you’re a lot hotter… she is unkind, controlling, and frosty as that snowman, except she’s got the corn-cob pipe stuffed up her arse.


Well, there it was, my worst fears confirmed. Eilish was a million times too good for this loser.   I mean, how did he even manage to score her? The bloke looked like he could fall into a barrel of tit and come out sucking his thumb.


That, my friend, is not just a man. That is an orgasm guarantee. Every. Single.   Time… I’ve never met anyone like that, let alone been with someone like that. You know how horny I am. I’ve always been this way. It’s why I stopped waxing…


I have to leave… I can’t handle that level of perfection… You’re so beautiful and tall and graceful. And smart. But you don’t know what it’s like for us mortals… Next time warn me okay? So I can take a Xanax?


‘I’m not adorable. I’m brooding and sexy and masculine,’ I said, effecting a manly expression. It was all in the brow.



My Review:


The Cad and The Co-Ed is another witty, crisp, and highly amusing read by the illustrious word-moguling duo of Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway. I don’t know how they work their collaboration out, but the result is a seamless package of pure delight. I adore this series, despite knowing absolutely nothing about rugby and very little about Ireland.   My ignorance of such things was of no consequence, but my intense pleasure and thrill in reading their clever combinations of words were paramount.   Written from a dual POV, the storyline was witty, engaging, and inordinately entertaining. I am hopelessly addicted, thoroughly enchanted, and jonesing for more.

    I have not read anything like it, I’m not much of this genre, but maybe someday I’ll venture with some of it XD
