Good Boy by Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen Book Summary

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?

Warning: Do not read while sipping hot liquids. Or cold ones. Or while sitting anywhere laughter would be inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppies and a snarky pair of underwear.

Good Boy (Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen) Book Reviews

Good BoyLove this book. Blake is a lovable character with a big heart and great attitude. Fun book to read..Score: 5/5

Fun and happyI loved that book because it’s an easy read with very little drama and lots out happy times. But as a Canadian I can tell you that there is no such thing as Toronto red as part of the colors of the Toronto maple leafs hockey team colors. It is just blue and white..Score: 5/5

CleverSo many clever phrases and metaphors. Memorable writing. Can’t wait to see the movie. Uncensored, of course..Score: 5/5

Love this writing duoIf you read HIM and US (amazing must reads), you'll be happy to learn that Jamie and Wesley are in this book. They aren't the leads, but it's a treat to see more of them. Jess is Jamie's sister. Blake is Wesley's teammate, and he lives in the same building as Jamie and Wesley. Jess and Blake had a hookup in US, but they weren't actually together. Jess feels like she isn't as put together as the rest of the Canning clan. She's trying to figure out her life. Blake is adorable. At first glance, he seems shallow and only surface deep, but that's because he likes to keep things lite. He prefers to make people happy. He's kind and funny, beautiful inside and out. Jess and Blake are so easy to love. They're decent people with big hearts and relatable actions. Both are great friend material, and they definitely fit as a couple. I really enjoyed this story. It left me with a good feeling. It's a mix of RomCom, sweet, sexy and sporty. It's worth checking out for sure..Score: 4/5

Cheezus I loved this book!Cheezus I loved this book! The hilarious and witty banter, the playful innuendo and flirting, and of course the smoking sexy times made for the perfect book! Good Boy is the first book in the new WAGs series. It features characters from other books by the writing duo of Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, but can be read as a standalone. Blake is a character that you will find immensely amusing and loveable, or extremely annoying and immature. I clearly found him adorable. He comes across as a cocky and wisecracking jock, but underneath, he's a loyal, protective, and huggable teddy bear. His inner monologue was some of the funniest I have ever read and I had a perpetual grin on my face reading this book. Jess is also an amazing heroine who really grows through the course of the book. Her struggle with her confidence and her drive to go after her dreams was realistic and heartfelt. Haven't we all felt a little lost and less than at one point or another? The chemistry between Blake and Jess was amazing and I loved how they each kept each other in check and could be both playful and serious with each other. They may not have started their relationship in the most conventional way, but I loved how it all unfolded. Another thing that made this book really enjoyable were the awesome secondary characters (Wesmie!) and that there wasn't any unnecessary additional drama. Truly a fantastic read, and I can't wait for the next book, Stay!.Score: 5/5

Misleading title/cover“Good Boy” is barely dog adjacent. It’s just a ploy to get you to read a book where the romantic lead is a loud, crude, and rude guy. Author does bring out his better side but he’s still an ignorant buffoon..Score: 3/5

Cheesuz!​ **4.5 stars** Oh man, when I found out Blake was going to get his own story, I could not wait to get my hands on it. Blake was one of my favorite secondary characters that is introduction during Him and Us. I'm fairly sure he just got more comical as we learned more about him. But this story? It makes you realize just how amazing and funny he really is. Elle and Sarina, once again, did an amazing job with the characters. Blake and Jess's story is so unbelievably sweet. I didn't want it to end. You end up loving them both and learning how much they both have overcome in their lives. Blake has you laughing out loud and his "Blakeisms" and you just can't help but loving him. Watching Jess fight her attraction to Blake has to be one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. The harder she tries to resist him the more serious he gets with his game. Blake is seriously a charmer and oh did he ever charm Jess. You snippets of Wesmie and the rest of the team, but the story mostly focuses on Blake and Jess. You won't regret reading this amazing story. I can't wait for book 2 in this new spin-off series..Score: 5/5

Good BoyWes and Jamie final married. Loved how the wedding fell into place nothing too flashy. I fell in love with Riley and Jess. They had me loving them as couple from the beginning. Riley is the strength and positive energy Jess needed in her life. I really want more on where their relationship goes..Score: 5/5

It was alright..Overall the book with okay and the only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because of how much the main male character irked me. I love just about all of Elle’s Briar books, but this Blake guy annoyed me how he talked! He seemed overly pushy and really immature with his vocabulary which in my opinion made him unattractive. I loved the story line and had this character been written much different I would’ve given a better review. I think I’ll just stick to the Off Campus and Briar U series....Score: 3/5

It’s not what you thinkI thought this book was going to be about a dominant female and male, but maybe the male submits to her in the bedroom. Nothing overtly domme/sub or BDSM, but maybe some elements. Something! This book has none of that. The title refers to the dog on the cover, not really the relationship between the two main characters. However, the book is still very cute and lovely. Your average romance novel, but still funny and worth reading. I usually hate split POV romances with a passion (it feels like lazy writing to me, to just switch POVs and tell me exactly what the other character is thinking instead of making me figuring it out through their dialogue/actions), but this is one of the few books where the split POV works because the characters think so differently. The guy has a unique way of thinking/talking that amused and stuck with me for days after I finished reading. It actually feels like two different people, instead of my worst fear, with which is different POVs obviously written by the same person because the narration is too similar, ugh..Score: 5/5

Great story continuation!I absolutely loves Him , and Us. I did not think it could get better, but I was wrong. You can't write the next one fast enough. I laughed out loud so hard I woke the cat. Keep them coming"😺😺😺.Score: 5/5

Funny ManThis book can be read as a standalone novel. For those who have not read the HIM series, WARNING: spoilers ahead! This is the beginning of a new series featuring the characters from a previous one. Blake & Jess have a complicated history. When they see one another again, Blake wants more than just a brush off. Jess wants to walk away from the past. Jess knows her family thinks less of her already. The last thing she needs is to give them a reason to doubt her again. The wedding must be perfect. She must forget about Blake. This is a seriously fun read! Featuring characters I dearly love, and more about hockey too. I cannot wait to see what comes next in the WAGs series!! ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review only..Score: 4/5

Blake & JessLoved their story and the chemistry between them. Blake comes off as a bit of an idiot in the beginning but he’s really such a good guy who always looks out for everyone else. The only downside - I really would have loved an epilogue so that I could have gotten a glimpse into their future, since it seemed so promising, both as a couple and for Jess and reaching her goals of becoming a nurse..Score: 5/5

Very Enjoyable ReadRecently came across Sarina Bowen’s work after an author I enjoy recommended her and have read a few books so far. This one had me laughing out loud and is a definite favorite, so the author duo definitely works well! Initially I thought Blake’s character would be a dumb jock, or dud, but he definitely grows on you and in the end is adobable and amazing. Jess is down to earth and loyal, making them great together. All in all, a light-hearted, fun-loving read to help with the quarantine blues :).Score: 5/5

Good Boy!Good Boy by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy Wow this book wasn't quite what I expected and I mean that in the best way possible. I thought it would be something more serious in nature but this was pure sports romance slash RomCom perfection! If you've read Him and Us by this dynamic duo, you'll have met some of these characters already but if you haven't, fret not! I've only read Him and I didn't feel lost at any time, nor did I feel that there were past references that went over my head. I laughed so freaking much while reading this book. Some of the things that came out of Blake's mouth had me in fits and the title of this book is a perfect fit because Blake is like a rambunctious puppy that you try and calm down by telling him he's a 'good boy'. His inner monologue was a pleasure to read. I just adored him. And him? He adored Jess! Jess is the perfect contrast to Blake's playful nature. She's ashamed of constantly disappointing her family with her constant career changes and is serious about obtaining her nursing degree and making her family finally proud. She moves to the same city as Blake, and as much as he tries to tear down her walls, she maintains that she doesn't want anything serious with him, or with anyone else. I know this was an absolutely fabulous light and fluffy RomCom but it had a good dose of substance too. There are some deep layers to both these characters and it was a pure pleasure discovering them all. I adored everything about the book and these characters and I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the WAGs series. I don't hesitate to recommend this to everyone! *arc received in exchange for honest review. **Reviewed by Melinda for Joandisalovebooks Blog..Score: 5/5

Not for meElle & Sarina are fantastic authors and I will read them again. However, the Blake character? It’s a no. I found him pushy to the point of gross insensitivity and not respecting of the word ‘no‘. Not attractive qualities, imo. So much so, I couldn’t finish the book. 0 stars for Blake but 3 stars for the still quality word smithing..Score: 2/5
