Blog Tour Review: The Cad and the Co-Ed by Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway


The Cad and The Co-Ed, a quirky and sexy romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is available now!!



Bryan Leech is a cad.

Or, he *was* a cad.

No one is quite certain.

Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.

The only problem is, no one believes him.


Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed to put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.

The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.


Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.

Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.

But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?

Note: I received an ARC from the authors and Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an unbiased review.

I’ve been waiting for The Cad and the Co-Ed to be released ever since I finished The Player and the Pixie. I adored Eilish and her relationship with her cousin, Sean, in it. I was excited she was getting her own book because she was so much fun. She had definitely changed a bit, but I loved the little moments when her personality popped out with Sean or Bryan.

One of my favorite things about this series is the men in them. They always start out as jerks, but by the end they’ve proved what amazing men they really are. Bryan did exactly that. He was definitely a cad at the beginning. I didn’t blame Eilish for any of her decisions. I would have run for my life, too. Who Bryan became by the time Eilish had to face him again was pretty awesome. He still had that bad boy vibe, but he was almost nerdy! It was adorable.

Bryan and Eilish’s relationship developed perfectly. I loved that it wasn’t an instant relationship, but that Bryan really had to prove himself to her. I do have to admit that I’m surprised that Bryan wasn’t hesitant to believe Eilish’s secret, but it did fit with his newfound lifestyle and attitude. I also loved the chemistry they had. The sex in this book was hot!!!

The Cad and the Co-Ed was a delightful read. It was everything I’ve come to expect from Cosway and Reid. Fans of the Rugby series will love it!
