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.

Good Boy possesses just the right concoction of wit, drama and romance to provide a light-hearted and entertaining story.
I love the men Bowen and Kennedy create together. Blake had his own special blend of charm that made him completely irresistible. He was like a bull in a china closet at times with his take charge attitude and determination. But beneath that tough exterior was a swoon-worthy, gentle spirit with a heart of gold. I admired Blake for his tenacity and the patience he demonstrated time and again.
Jess was a frustrating character. Her insecurities and reserved nature made her difficult to connect with at times. She definitely tested Blake’s patience (and mine) which provided for some rather entertaining moments. In the end, I was pleased with her character development.
Overall, this was a cute story and I adored getting to catch up with Wes and Jamie. There were a few eye-rolls over excessive talk about size but I thoroughly enjoyed the chase. I am looking forward to the next installment in the WAGs series, Stay, which is slated to release in June.
Overall Rating: 4 Stars
