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?

The Cad And The Co-Ed was so much fun to read. I even live tweeted while reading, so if you want to see my first reactions #CadAndCoEdLive Which includes beauties like this:

I definitely enjoy my unexpected pregnancy stories, it’s a plot that has been done many times before, so it’s not easy to keep it original. Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway made a serious effort. I loved seeing the change in Bryan from party animal to Friday nights with tea and a book.
I’m not a fan where women keep the daddy’s out of the loop. While in a way I could understand Eilish for the most part. The Bryan she had a one night stand with, was not father material, and her feelings were extremely hurt. At that point in his life he was not going to be the man she needed for their kid.
Though now luckily when Eilish is back in town, she gets to meet the new Bryan. Sober, almost killjoy Bryan is someone she can rely on, and be the father her kid needs, and wants. As for things between them, that’s where Bryan shows he’s not completely turned into an eighty year old man yet. His charm was smoother while being a drunk, but what he lacks in suave he makes up with honesty.
The Cad And The Co-Ed is a great addition to the Rugby series. You’ve got to love a man in tight rugby shorts, who appreciates a quiet night in with tea and a good book. From magical body parts to sweet, deep connections Eilish and Bryan will have you giggle and swoon.
