"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

It all begins at Jamie and Wes’ wedding. Jamie’s sister, Jess Canning, has planned the perfect wedding for her brother. The stress of planning the wedding and making sure everything goes as planned has opened her eyes and made her realize she may have chosen the wrong career path. She doesn’t enjoy being an event planner. This wedding is her last gig and she feels like she is letting her family down. To top it off the best man, Blake Riley, Wes’ NHL teammate, is doing a better job coordinating different aspects of the event than she is. This crass NHL player with no filters has charmed the guests, made miracles happen, and is offering his help to alleviate the stress. The last thing she needs is him helping her destress. That would mean she’s losing her panties and distressing in a very sexy way.
After the big event, Jess finds the courage to start pursuing the career she knows she was meant to do. It means she has to go back to college to become a nurse. Her parents have shelled out enough money for her previous education and career choices. She’s going to do this on her own. She’s landed a scholarship in Toronto. She will be close to Jamie and Wes, as well as Blake Riley, their neighbor and teammate.
Blake offers Jess the support and friendship she needs while trying to fit back into college life and meet the demands of the nursing program. He’s a fun guy to hang out with and has huge shoulders to cry on when things get rough. He also has a huge heart made of gold. There’s more to this guy than sex, fun, and hockey. He’s dedicated to his family and protective of those he cares about. He is even protective of his manipulating ex where his family is concerned. Rather than expose her lies and hurt his family, he keeps his mouth shut. In a desperate effort to deflect the attention, Blake brings Jess home to meet his family. He introduces her as his girlfriend with the hopes that his family will let his past relationship go. Mamma Riley has a big heart and knows her boy is up to something.
After meeting Blake’s family, Jess sees a very different side of Wes. She’s realizing that he is a man with honor. His morals may be spotty, his brand of craziness may be annoying, but his pure heart is completely lovable. Add his love for the furry friends to the mix and his pure dedication and you have the perfect Good Boy.
The moment I opened this book I could not put it down. Blake Riley is larger than life and had me falling hopelessly in love with him. When his family was introduced to the mix I wanted marry him. When he showed all his true colors I wanted to keep him forever. Sarina and Elle have another Stanley Cup winner on their roster. I can’t wait for the next book in the WAGS series. Matt Eriksson has sparked my imagination.
Thanks to Blake's bigger than life personality, there is more humor than in the previous two books. It was fun to have Wes and Jamie pop in and out throughout the book. I love those guys! Nicely written with a breezy pace, this one is another winner for Sarina and Elle. Looking forward to the next one.
I do have to say that my only complaint is the timing in the book. School starts in late August/September. Jess has what would seem to be finals with a week off at one point. Much has happened before and even after that and makes it seem as though much time has passed, so I'm thinking that it must be mid-December, when suddenly it is the week before Thanksgiving. Too much has happened to only have been about 10 weeks by then. Also, I think there had been a prior mention of Thanksgiving, so time is a little off. Not a big deal, just felt kind of strange.
Blake is the gorgeous NHL star that's fun, happy and loved by all. To the outside world, he's always joking and let's everything negative roll off his back. When in reality, he's masking the pain from past hurts and betrayal. He's drawn to Jess. Jess is the gorgeous friend who steers clear of Blake whenever she can. She too has her own baggage and insecurities. The authors take us through the building of the relationship to the realization of more while simultaneously addressing their personal challenges.
Good Boy started out slow for me, but in looking at the big picture, it set the stage for the full story with depth and dimension. And there's a ton of humor but it's the Dumb and Dumber or Hangover kind of humor - funny to some and not so much for others. I fall somewhere in between so it's an immature perspective to me at times. However, once the friendship turns into more and we get to see the real Blake underneath, I fell in love with him and his humor.
All in all, once I got through the beginning, it was an enjoyable and entertaining read. Eriksson is next up in the series and with the teasers already provided, appears to have a great story to tell.
