Good Boy (WAGs #1) by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy [REVIEW]

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?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear

4 Dog Loving Stars

WAG = Wives And Girlfriends … I didn’t know that, but now I do.

Good Boy is a standalone and is a spinoff from the Him series. Good Boy is a M/F read, the Him series is a M/M read. I haven’t read the Him series, but after finishing Good Boy, I REALLY need to because it seems like a very cute series. 

Elle and Sarina are one of my two top favorite authors and so I am delighted they wrote a book together. I was really excited for this book. 

Jess is a wedding planner turn nurse in school. She’s kind of finding herself in the book and I love her struggles. She doesn’t have time to get hung up in man-child Blake.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Blake. I liked his personality. I found him really lovable, adorable and funny handsome. He’s a hockey player and he has a thing for Jess. I’m all about the Hero chasing after the Heroine, so this made my day. 

I really liked the banter between Jess and Blake. It’s just the right amount of tension to get you going. As you read more of the book, I got more into it and my smile got wider.

Overall, Good Boy is a funny and sweet read written by two awesome authors. A win in my opinion.
