3.5 Star · Contemporary

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

Beware of Spoilers!

Star Ratings:

Heroine (Bryan): 24yrs old

Hero (Eilish): 30yrs old

Plot: 3/5

Grovel: none

Cheating: none

HEA: yes but a ‘several weeks later’ epilogue is not good enough

Triggers: none

Average score: 3.5/5

Best Line: “I got a new plant, and it’s been alive for a month.”

Worst Line: I may have made some poor choices in my time, but at least I could say I was never stupid enough to get anyone pregnant.


Personal Review:

A good second chance romance between a single mother and a recovering alcoholic.

Random Ramblings

  • Not the best of first impressions but I’ve read worse
  • In this case, I was ok with her not telling him she was pregnant – serves him right to sleeping with people and then not remembering them – who knows how many illegitimate kids he’s got running around!
  • Josey was expecting too much from her
  • Loved her protectiveness over her son
  • The one thing that annoys me in ‘secret baby romances’ is when the h tells herself she needs to tell the H about his child but then things get in the way JUST when she is about to tell him!! Luckily that didn’t happen in this story (much)
  • I lost all respect for the h when she said she was dating Will
  • Things went downhill surprisingly fast
  • What happened to the plant? There was no mention of it at the end!
