The Cad and the Co-Ed by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid


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 5 Star Review

From the freaking moment I read the excerpt of this book, I was all about reading it. First, it’s an unplanned pregnancy book and I am all about it these books! Second, the heroine hooks up with her cousin, who is like a brother to her, teammate. So I was ecstatic and super pumped to read it. I remember messaging my bestie telling her this book would be EPIC!

Well, months later I finally got to read it and guess what…it was EPIC! I loved it and felt it was PERFECT!

So our Cad is Bryan and when I read that excerpt a few months ago he had the Cad part down perfectly. He was a legit tool and it was easy to hate him. However, the more you read you see another side to him. In the present Bryan is a new man. He is no longer drinking, he is respectable and determined to be a good man. His life has control and he has matured so much.

Our Co-Ed is Eilish Cassidy, she is Sean’s cousin and they are super close, he actually turns out to be one of the few people she can rely on. Eilish is a fantastic heroine and I instantly fell in love with her. Yes, she makes some mistakes, but she has the best of intentions and I could understand her reasoning. I loved how relatable her character was and how you wanted to be her friend. 

Neither Eilish or Bryan are perfect, but together they are fantastic. Their connection had a slow build to it that kept you completely engaged and anxious to see what would happen next. Bryan is instantly attracted to Eilish, but she wants nothing to do with him. However, she is forced into his life when she begins working with the rugby team. It’s a lot harder to avoid Bryan when she realizes he has changed and learns about the kind of man he is now. Once she gives into her feelings I was hooked and just wanted to live in their world indefinitely. 

This story moves so quickly and kept me engaged from the very beginning. Every time I had to stop reading for real life I was thinking about this story and was so excited to jump back in. I feel like it’s so rare that a book makes me think about it constantly and this book did just that. I love this story, it’s my favorite in the series and definitely one of my favorites this year. Absolutely fantastic and you should definitely read it!
