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

THE CAD 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.

THE CO-ED 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 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.

THE PLAN 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?

Only Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway could entice me to read a romance using the secret baby trope. These two authors are amazing together and write rugby like no one else; therefore, I took a chance on them.
Guess what? They delivered an emotional, rock solid romance that will make any non-lovers of secret baby stories rethink their stance. I loved The Cad and the Co-Ed – the third addition to their Rugby series – and hope they plan on continuing their collaboration. (They’re stand-alones so don’t about series order.)
The secret son, Patrick, is an endearing little boy and brilliant addition who adds more heart to this already heartfelt story. Bryan is sweet, funny and realistic as he adjusts from partying playboy to newly sober non-partier; his alcoholism is very handled well. Eilish is a great mother and deals with the ramifications of keeping Patrick a secret with tact, maturity and love. Their path to become a family is touching and made me shed a few tears. Add to all of this goodness, The Cad and the Co-Ed is sexy and has everything you look for in a contemporary sports romance. You can’t really get any better, and I can’t recommend it enough.
