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.

Why did I add Good Boy to my bookshelf?

Um, can someone explain to me why I haven’t read this book yet? Because I have absolutely no idea. This book is a spin-off of the Him series, which I love. That means that not only will I get a romance from one of my favorite writing pairs but I will get to see more Wes and Jamie!! To make things even better – Teddy Hamilton and Tanya Eby narrate this story so I know that the narration will be top-notch. I have convinced myself – this is going to be my next read.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. I agree… why haven’t you read this yet?? lol I adored this one. Blake Riley is the best and getting more Wesmie was the icing on top. I’m so sad Bowen doesn’t plan on continuing the WAGs series!

  2. There are so many books I’m mad at myself for not reading! I haven’t heard of this author(s) but this sounds likea good read.
