Good Boy

Wags Series – Book 1

By Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

Release Date: January 31,2017

Buy: Amazon 



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?

Warning: Do not read while sipping hot liquids. Or cold ones. Or while sitting anywhere laughter would be inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppies and a snarky pair of underwear.



Michel’s Review

Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy is a must read if you have read Him and Us.  If you haven’t read these books it’s okay because Good Boy can be read as a stand alone novel and is the beginning of the new Wags series. If you are a sports romance fan or a fan of books that include our furry little friends, Good Boy is the perfect book.

It all begins at Jamie and Wes’ wedding.  Jamie’s sister, Jess Canning, has planned the perfect wedding for her brother.  The stress of planning the wedding and making sure everything goes as planned has opened her eyes and made her realize she may have chosen the wrong career path.  She doesn’t enjoy being an event planner.  This wedding is her last gig and she feels like she is letting her family down.  To top it off the best man, Blake Riley, Wes’ NHL teammate, is doing a better job coordinating different aspects of the event than she is.  This crass NHL player with no filters has charmed the guests, made miracles happen, and is offering his help to alleviate the stress.  The last thing she needs is him helping her destress.  That would mean she’s losing her panties and distressing in a very sexy way.

After the big event, Jess finds the courage to start pursuing the career she knows she was meant to do.  It means she has to go back to college to become a nurse.  Her parents have shelled out enough money for her previous education and career choices.  She’s going to do this on her own.  She’s landed a scholarship in Toronto.  She will be close to Jamie and Wes, as well as Blake Riley, their neighbor and teammate.

Blake offers Jess the support and friendship she needs while trying to fit back into college life and meet the demands of the nursing program.  He’s a fun guy to hang out with and has huge shoulders to cry on when things get rough.  He also has a huge heart made of gold. There’s more to this guy than sex, fun, and hockey.  He’s dedicated to his family and protective of those he cares about.  He is even protective of his manipulating ex where his family is concerned.  Rather than expose her lies and hurt his family, he keeps his mouth shut.  In a desperate effort to deflect the attention, Blake brings Jess home to meet his family.  He introduces her as his girlfriend with the hopes that his family will let his past relationship go.  Mamma Riley has a big heart and knows her boy is up to something.

After meeting Blake’s family, Jess sees a very different side of Wes.  She’s realizing that he is a man with honor.  His morals may be spotty, his brand of craziness may be annoying, but his pure heart is completely lovable.  Add his love for the furry friends to the mix and his pure dedication and you have the perfect Good Boy.

The moment I opened this book I could not put it down.  Blake Riley is larger than life and had me falling hopelessly in love with him.  When his family was introduced to the mix I wanted marry him.  When he showed all his true colors I wanted to keep him forever.  Sarina and Elle have another Stanley Cup winner on their roster.  I can’t wait for the next book in the WAGS series.  Matt Eriksson has sparked my imagination.
