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.

Both Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen are easily two of my favorite authors ever, so I was ecstatic when I saw they were writing books together. This is the first one I picked up by the both of them and, seeing as it has hockey players and dogs, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. 

Blake Riley enjoyed his one night with Jess Canning and fate has now brought them together as best man and maid of honor at her brother's wedding. Jess is already stressed enough planning her brother's wedding and deciding how to tell her family she wants to change her career yet again, so she doesn't need Blake tempting her for a repeat, no matter how yummy he looks. But Jess finds herself moving close to her brother, meaning she's close to Blake and his cocky attitude and reminders of their time together. The more maddening Jess finds Blake, though, the harder she finds him to resist…

I've got to say, I wasn't that big of a fan of Blake at the beginning of this book. He was so forward with Jess and I didn't like someone that aggressive, though he was more of a goofy aggressive. As the book went on, I actually found myself growing fond of Blake and what a good guy he really was. I guess I fell for him just like Jess did as she realized how kind he was and how much he cared for others and put them before himself. 

I really loved Jess's character and how relatable her character was. My sister is a nurse, so I loved how Jess was going through nursing school and was seriously doubting herself at everything she did. I know I've experienced my fair share of doubt in my life, so it was refreshing seeing someone so realistic and unsure of their future or what they want to do with their life. It was fun seeing her realize how much she was starting to like Blake, despite the fact that she was super stressed with school, and I think their relationship progressed very realistically. 

While I didn't read Him or Us, I loved seeing Jess's brother's marriage to Wes and how happy they were together. All of the side characters were so lovable and I am already dying for more books in this series. If you love hockey romance, you're definitely going to want to pick this one up. With hot hockey players who have the sweetest hearts, you're going to love Good Boy!
