Release Day Review: Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

 Good Boy (WAGS #1)
by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

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.

My review: 5 stars!
Only a few chapters in I knew Good Boy would land on my Best of 2017 list. I have also gotten a big stingy with my 5 star ratings- for me to assign a 5, the book has to be undeniably perfect. And Good Boy has it all- humor, chemistry (so hot), excellent dialog, great character development, fabulous writing... I could go on and on! 

After meeting Blake in Us, the follow-up to Him, I immediately liked him, but was slightly annoyed by him and his interrupting ways and his penchant for nicknames. I wondered, could he be an H I would enjoy reading a whole book about? Oh yes he was! I adored his dedication to Jess..... I loved that he was patient with her and stood back and let her figure things out, all while being caring and supportive and just all-around PERFECT. What a great guy he turned out to be! He's risen to he top of my list of book boyfriends!

If you haven't read Him and Us, Good Boy can definitely standalone, but I think you'll want to go back and read about Wesmie after meeting them. If you have, you'll be pleased to see many familiar faces and I think you'll agree that this is a great start to Bowen and Kennedy's new WAGS (Wives and Girlfriends) series. Love love love!
