Synopsis (Goodreads):
Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls.

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.

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 to 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.

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?
Thoughts on The Cad and the Co-ed: Oh, man. I thought Sean would be the tough guy to follow, all things considered. He had quite a few road blocks to get past before he could find his HEA, after all. Somehow--SOMEHOW--Bryan managed to have even MORE. Or maybe it's less. You know, considering he had no memory of the very memorable night he and Eilish shared several years ago.

Convincing a woman she's worth it when a guy's forgotten the experience is ROUGH. And with Eilish's heart as guarded as it is after everything, Bryan has his work cut out for him.

I will say, however, that once this former playboy sets his mind to something, he goes all in. Does he make mistakes? OF COURSE. He makes a few big ones. But his heart is in the right place in the end and that's what really matters.

As for Eilish, given her fears and the way Bryan unwittingly crushed her before, it takes her time to warm up to the idea that they could have something. She had her reasons for keeping her secret, but she owned up to what she needed to do once she saw how Bryan had changed.

I always like revisiting characters we've met before and Bryan's teammates were just fun. I wouldn't mind seeing the steadfast William, who is NOT a saint, find someone for himself. Just sayin'. In the meantime, I'm just going to enjoy these men finding woman who put up with their quirks and sweatiness and wonderfully toned bodies. Because WHY NOT?!?!
