Title: Good Boy
Series: WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends)#1
Author: Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy
Release date: January 31, 2017
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 first thought that comes to mind about this story is that you need to be prepared to laugh. Blake is an in-your-face horndog. He's completely crazy, and stubborn as hell too. You will be hard pressed to get this man to take much in life seriously. Most of the time when he opens his mouth, out comes some insanely ridiculous statement...yet you find yourself unwillingly laughing. He has this charm about him that doesn't let you look away. I'm not going to lie, I rolled my eyes a few times because he is so...so....BLAKE. But there is no other guy like him, of that I can guarantee. And he's kind of like a big teddy bear who's protective of everyone around him. It's pretty hard to dislike him.
He laughs the way he lives his life— loud and fierce and without inhibition. He fucks that way, too.
Jess had a one-night stand with Blake that no one knows about. He's her
Blake is determined for some more lighthearted fun with his friend's sexy sister. Nothing serious, because he's been burned and wounded by his ex and he's all about casual now. What would a romp or two (or three) hurt? Her attempts to shoot him down only fan the flames of his attraction.
“I said go away,” she growls. I hide a smile. Now this is what gets me going— a woman who doesn’t give a shit that I’m Blake Riley the hockey player. A woman who’d rather shoo me away than impress me. It’s… refreshing.
This book was very low on the angst and high on the fun. There wasn't a whole lot of drama between them and I have to say I really enjoyed the lightness of this one. Jess struggled with getting involved with Blake while she was trying to prove herself to her family. And Blake had to work through the betrayal from his ex and learn to trust someone else again with his heart. But once he realized that his feelings ran deeper than some very satisfying sexy times, he wasn't going anywhere. He was in it for the long haul.
“I’m what?” I ask thickly. She squeezes my hand. “You’re the best.” Her praise makes my heart soar. Damn it. I’ve got it bad. I’m so fucking fucked.
This was an easy, fast paced read with plenty of laughs. I highly enjoyed meeting this group of characters and will be continuing the series without a doubt. Book two in the WAGs series, Stay is Eriksson's book and is scheduled for release in June.
