Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls.
THE CAD 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.
THE CO-ED 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 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.
THE PLAN 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?


Wow! I’m impressed! This book is my favorite contemporary romance novel I’ve read so far this year. The writing, the humor, and the tension between the main characters was the perfect recipe for success.

When Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway come together they produce a love child book that speaks to me. They pack fun and emotion into their writing that’s irresistible. You never know where the story is going to take you, but you know it’s going to be a good place.

The first half of The Cad and the Co-ed is definitely my favorite part. There’s nothing better than some great chemistry and electric chemistry between two characters. The feelings between Eilish and Bryan made me feel all ooey and gooey inside. The second half of the book was still really good, but once the couple finally gets together some of that electricity loses some of its power when they have to face other issues in their relationship.

TCATC was a fun take on the secret baby trope. The stand-alone had me laughing and swooning from beginning to end. Definitely a quick read I recommend to romance readers.
