Eilish has been a fan of Bryan since girlhood, and even though her cousin Sean has warned her to stay away from Bryan, she can’t resist him. But it doesn’t end happily, and it leads to those words which I’m not really a fan of, “five years later.”
Fortunately, I didn’t have to wait literally five years for the story to continue, but I felt all the pain of the characters who did. Bryan is a recovering alcoholic, and he’s doing pretty well at it. Eilish is back in Ireland after completing her degree in the States. She’s grown up and wiser now, but after all this time, Bryan is still firmly embedded in her heart. The humorous writing that Penny Reid brings in makes this story fun to read, even with the somewhat somber story content. Another great book for Reid/Cosway fans.
I really want to know how to pronounce Eilish correctly with an Irish accent. In my head, all I can come up with is a cross between delish and eyelash.
My biggest pet peeves about books like this is sometimes authors forget to put interaction with the kids in them. This book had very little interaction between either parent and their child. I also felt like a lot was left us resolved with certain characters.
So I'm rating this one a 3 because it wasn't bad but it wasnt great either, just somewhere inbetween.
Cad? What Cad? I forgot all about the Cad around the second or third chapter. Having loved the first two books in the Rugby series, I was keen to read Eilish Cassidy's story and found a page turner that had me smiling more than I can recall while reading a book in a long time. I can't recommend this series highly enough. It is fresh, well-paced and downright entertaining.
I was a little apprehensive reading about Bryan aka the Cad after what we learned about him earlier in the series, and I didn't like the idea of him being the one for Eilish. My fears were soon averted as Bryan turned out to be an utterly charming guy, not to mention thoughtful and forgiving! It was easy to see how a young impressionable girl became so swept up in the moment and how quickly she came crashing down from her dream night.
Eilish is a single mother, a proud and independent young lady who for the last four years had educated herself while raising her beautiful son, Patrick. A change in circumstances forced her to return to Ireland and accept the help of her cousin to get back on her feet again. Since the arrival of her son, she has relished in devoting her time to him, being the mother to him she never had.
Her stoic silence about sharing the news of Patrick's existence to Bryan was put to the test when Eilish takes a position as a physiotherapist with the rugby team. Being so close to Bryan was overwhelming. Despite being ridden with guilt, she held her secret tight, not wanting to lose her precious son. Their chemistry was undeniable, but she wrote it off as lust and Bryan was not ready for a relationship, especially with his team mate's cousin. His years of drinking had impacted on his memory, and that included ever having met Eilish and fathering their child.
There was lots of beautiful moments and the banter between the teammates, and when they got together, it was awesome. The Twitter posts shared at the beginning of each chapter illustrated their comradery as well as the scenes where they featured. Witty and entertaining, they added another dimension to the characters while not impacting on the flow of the story.
The Cad and the Co-Ed is a story of broken trust and how not all breaks can be mended. Each book in the Rugby series carries the same upbeat tone as they cover difficult issues with sensitive and heartfelt storytelling. Be ready for a few twists. There's no smooth sailing for a girl who has no time to waste on anything other than the gift of her son. There is so much I loved about this story, as was evident from my highlighting and notes on situations that continued right through to the end of the kickass epilogue.
People's feelings got hurt but not intentionally or maliciously. There was a small bit of angst and drama with a misunderstanding or two but they were swiftly resolved. Well-written and well-paced, this was a gem and I want MORE! Penny is a must reid (see what i did there) author for me and by extension and because of this series, so is L.H. Cosway. I loved this book so hard. Enjoy!
