eARC received in exchange of honest review Synopsis:
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.
The WAGs Series if off to a great start! I read Sarina Bowen's and Elle Kennedy's books, but it was my first time reading a book by the Bowen/Kennedy duo. This series is a spin-off from their Him Series, which follows Jamie and Wes. I did not get a chance to read that series yet, but after meeting these two fantastic characters I will absolutely remedy to that as soon as possible. My book sisters told me that Jess Canning and Blake Riley were introduced in the Him Series. Even if I did not read that series, I had no problem finding my connection with these characters. It was a fun and charming reading escape that left me with a huge smile on my face. Jess Canning is stressed. She’s planning her brother’s wedding and absolutely everything must go as planned. There is only one problem ... Blake Riley. He’s the best man and he’s all kinds of delicious trouble. Jess knows she should stay away from him, but when her next career choice brings her to Toronto she knows he will be closer than ever. Blake Riley is enjoying every single moment of the verbal foreplay and intense chemistry that he shares with Jess. She's stubborn, fierce and he's absolutely crazy about her. Will Blake be the next hockey player to fall hard and fast? Jess and Blake were a fun, sexy and interesting couple to follow. Their banter was crazy hilarious and their intense chemistry was explosive! Blake made me laugh on many occasions and I loved the way he fell hard for Jess. He was burned in the past and it took him time to accept what he was feeling for Jess. I also loved how he was always there for her through her difficult times. Jess changed career paths many times and she’s stressed about what her family will think of her next career choice. Blake gave her the support she needed when she started nursing school and that brought them closer together. He was there for her and that meant the world to her. I loved the supporting cast of characters that the authors created for this series. Connecting with the other characters in the story is always important to me. I loved each scene that featured Jamie, Wes, Jess and Blake. OMG!! These four characters are simply irresistible! These are the kind of characters I loved to cheer for. They make my bookworm heart burst with love and joy. I really had an awesome reading escape and I’m very excited for the next installment that will be released later this year. If you have never read anything by these authors, I highly recommend this new series.
I give, Good Boy, by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, 4 sexy, fun, swoony, delightful stars!
