Series: Rugby #3
Genres: adult, contemporary, Romance, Sports Romance

Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls.

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: This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.
Also in this series: The Hooker and the Hermit, The Player and the Pixie, The Cad and the Co-Ed, The Varlet and the Voyeur

1. Describe the Cad & the Co-Ed in a tweet (140 characters or less.)

Sports romance featuring a drunken night of passion leading to secret baby debacle, everyone behaves like reasonable adults, hilarity ensues

2. You have written so many books with so many different characters, so lets play pick the character.

 Which of your characters:

a) was the most fun to write?

Both Greg and Fiona Archer from ‘Happily Ever Ninja’ and ‘Ninja at First Sight.’ Greg because I never know what’s going to come out of his mouth, and Fiona because she’s representative of every mother I know, a complete badass ninja.

b) is the most romantic guy?

Either Nico from ‘Friends Without Benefits,’ he is the quintessential romantic, wears his hear on his sleeve for his woman, and has all the good moves.
Or Drew from ‘Beauty and the Mustache.’ One word: Poetry. BookBriefs : 😀

c) was the biggest pain in your butt?

Cletus Winston was the biggest pain in my butt. While I was writing his book, he always has an opinion about EVERYTHING. He was the loudest of my characters (in my head) and felt real to me in a way very few have. Book Briefs: I LOVE Cletus!

3. What is the hardest part about co-authoring a book? The best part?

The hardest part is waiting to find out what’s happens next! And the best part is receiving the new chapters back from L.H. Cosway so I can devour her words.

4. Can you tell us about any upcoming projects?

Right now I’m writing ‘Dating-ish,’ which is the 6th (and second to last) book in the Knitting in the City series, which will release in May 2017. It’s probably my strangest book (concept-wise) that I’ve written to date. Not to give too much away, but the story focuses on Marie, who is a journalist, and her question: “Is it possible to replace human (romantic) relationships– and achieve comparable levels of happiness and satisfaction– with either paid services or robots?”

5. If we had an author talent show, what would your talent be?

Knitting! Or playing the piano. Or making things awkward.

Thanks for having me!! <3

About Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

I did on the form above for all the fb entries visit their page. Hope this helps, I’d hate to see them terminate your account or something stupid like that. Congrats on your anniversary for blogging!
