Good Boy
Good Boy | Elle Kennedy, Sarina Bowen
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? Warning: Do not read while sipping hot liquids. Or cold ones. Or while sitting anywhere laughter would be inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppies and a snarky pair of underwear.

Cheezus, I can't get enough of these books! Blake's personality is so infectious, so it's no surprise that I love him too. Apparently I'm a hockey fan, ya'll. Who knew? 🤷🏽‍♀️😆❤️🏒 #romantsy

But also - can we talk about this cover for a sec? Hubba hubba 😂😍

BethM That sounds fun! 1y

After reading Him & Us, I had to revisit the Wesmie wedding & Blake & Jessica‘s story. I really liked it the first time & having read the Wesmie books only made it even better. Rolling on to book 4. #romantsy @

I‘m jumping on the #RomBkLove bandwagon. I won‘t be posting daily but I‘m going to be posting the heck out of my favorite themes. Yesterday was #betas and I haven‘t read many but I surprised myself by how much I loved Blake. I never thought I would say that about a hero I called a “loveable oaf.”

This was such a fun read. Told from both parties perspectives and I love it for that. The hero is a what you see is what you get kinda guy. He totally gets under the skin of our heroin. She is a nursing student who is just trying to skate by. They keep getting thrown together by circumstance and it eventually leads to more. Such a fun, light read if you are ever looking for one. #romantsy

MarriedtoMrT I really enjoyed this one! 2y

I read this one #becauseoflitsy & @EloisaJames - I have a soft spot for good ole boys & Blake seemed more like guys I actually know compared to most romance heroes. I might know Mama Riley's doppelgänger too. ????? #romantsy

EloisaJames I agree about Blake! He's a dude as my teen would say. 3y

I finished the blue alien romance just in time to receive a paper ARC of the next Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy book. I won it in a contest. They signed it. I squeed. #currentlyreading #romantsy

Couldn't find it in the database, so tagged the previous book.

SUPER-LOVED! This was so much fun to read + listen to. With all that is going on in the news, it felt incredible to lose myself in a story that made me laugh out loud. Also I enjoy "sports romance" stories. So this is really a win all around.

Blake's POV is my favorite. He is so funny. He's also a little bit crass, but I found him endearing. Secondary cast is fantastic. I'm so ready for book #2! #romantsy

Audio by Tanya Eby & Teddy Hamilton ?✔️

Chachic Blake is hilarious! Really enjoyed reading this one. 3y
intothehallofbooks @Chachic He's so great! I want to go back and read Him & Us-I haven't read those yet. I didn't realize Wes and Jamie would feature so heavily in this book. 3y
Chachic He's only in Us, he wasn't there in Him. But I still enjoyed both of those books! I loved Sarina Bowen's M/M romance too: 3y

I'm back! I was locked out of Litsy since last night, and I couldn't reset my password and kept getting an error. Anyway, glad it finally worked! So my post for #TitleWithGood is a bit late. I really enjoyed this romance collab by @Sarinabowen and Elle Kennedy. Blake, the hero, is hilarious.

Took me some time to get into this one because Blake is like a man-child--no depth, no intellect. But that's why I ultimately liked it. Bowen and Kennedy make us buy into his brand of love--all heart, all good deeds. A fun read.

This style of writing is not for me. Neither of the characters were doing anything for me, I really struggled with the hero as he felt quite immature. I could see where the story was going and I didn't care to take the journey with them.

I laughed out loud so hard at this line. Loved Blake! Took me a while but Bowen/Kennedy made him so much more complex than I ever expected. A fantastic read. #romantsy #romance #hockey

Josephines_Library Yeah, that line alone makes me want to pick it up and devour it. 3y

Started reading this before going to bed last night, BIG MISTAKE!! I was up until 3am reading because I couldn't put it down. Blake is adorable, his lines made me laugh so much. Jess a.k.a. J-babe is perfect for him. And I loved the cameos from Wesmie. Can't wait to read more from S-babe @Sarinabowen and E-babe! I'm a zombie at work today, will try to write a more coherent review when I've had more decent sleep. #romantsy

julesG One of those nights, huh? Have a good day! 3y
Chachic @julesG I managed to survive the work day! Hope I can go to bed early tonight. 😴😴 3y

I'm supposed to be reading teen books for my work challenge but instead I stayed up WAY too late last night reading this. I worked 8 hours yesterday and still managed to finish the whole book! Who can blame me, though? I challenge you to resist Blake, a love-able oaf with a heart of gold, as he wears down the defenses of his J-Babe and learns to tear down his own walls as well. Just the right amounts of adorable, funny, and hot. #romantsy

Chachic Great minds! I stayed way too late (already early morning). Blake is too adorable, so much fun to read about him. I loved his nicknames for everyone: J-bomb, J-babe, Wesmie.😂😂 3y
MarriedtoMrT @Chachic I don't know how anyone could put the book down for sleep! 😉 Blake and J-Babe were great. I can't wait for Elle and Sarina's next collab. 3y
Chachic Me too, can't wait to see what S-babe and E-babe write next! Must be one of the other players in the Toronto team. 3y
MarriedtoMrT @Chachic Ericksson but I don't think it comes out until this summer. I know I just read it but I can't remember, was he the one getting the divorce? 3y

If you read HIM and US (amazing must reads), you'll be happy to learn that Jamie and Wesley are in this book. They aren't the leads, but it's a treat to see more of them.
Jess and Blake are so easy to love. They're decent people with big hearts and relatable actions. Both are great friend material, and they definitely fit as a couple. #GoodBoy #SarinaBowen #ElleKennedy

As I see it, this title is a pun because the hero is a 'good old boy' -- unrepentantly cheerful, hockey-playing, slang-talking, somewhat obtuse, GUY. Likes beer, TV, and kindness. Silly, sometimes. As a romance writer, I can tell you unequivocally that the authors set themselves a huge challenge: turn him into a hero without a change of personality. I think they did it! It's a really original romance, one that I will read again. #romantsy

Chachic Sounds like a good one! I liked the glimpses of Blake in Him, so I look forward to seeing him as a hero. 3y
EloisaJames @Chachic He doesn't change from the cheerful bumbling upstairs neighbor (tho wow is he hot in bed) 3y

Tanner This sounds like it could be a lot of fun - I'm going to add it to the never-ending TBR! 3y
Jas16 I completely agree with you. The first few chapters I wasn't sure I would be able to buy him as a romantic lead but that quickly changed. 3y

This book was a reward after a trying week. Hockey players, a likable heroine, some fun dialogue and I am a happy, less stressed out girl. I feel no guilt for ignoring my library books.
