Audiobook Review: Good Boy (WAGs, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good Boy by Sarina Bowen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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

The heroine: Jess Canning – she is maid of honor (a.k.a. best woman) in her brother’s wedding, and she was instrumental in planning the event as well as the grooms dinner. She considers it the greatest wedding ever thrown. Her brother plays hockey and his fiancée is super successful in the NHL and so there are a bunch of famous guests. She is about to announce to her family that she is changing careers and is lamenting the fact that her family seems to see her as a screw up.

The Hero: Blake Riley – He is best man in the wedding and a star hockey player in the NHL. He is also gorgeous, loud, outrageous and arrogant. He was betrayed by a woman in his past and has no plans on ever falling in love again. Though he doesn’t mind hooking up with Jess whenever he possibly can.

The Story: Jess is a wreck after planning the wedding, it isn’t helped by the fact that Blake is invited to the wedding. He was one of Jess’s mistakes, she feels she never should have hooked up with him no matter how big a certain part of his anatomy is. The wedding has to go off without a hitch and it doesn’t help that Blake has been texting her all month and not all of the texts had to do with the wedding, one even had a picture of that certain part of his anatomy just to shake her up.

I’m not sure if I liked Blake at the beginning of this book. He was a bit too brash and obnoxious and acted a lot more like a frat brother than a professional hockey player. I can see how Jess could be attracted to him if he was so hot, but even hot guys get exponentially less hot when they have personality issues. I mean he actually called her J-Babe. Though he did grow on me and I ended up liking his quirks and attitude. I also thought the jokes and one-liners were pretty funny.

“She didn’t text back, not even when I sent her the best dick pic ever taken. I experimented with lighting in order to emphasize both length and girth, and she couldn’t be bothered to comment on how great Snake Riley looked?”

This is told in multiple points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Tanya Eby. Teddy Hamilton is one of my favorite male narrators and I love basically anything he narrates. He has a deep sexy voice which hits me in all my good spots. Tanya Eby is not one of my favorite narrators but she does a great job in this as well and her voice is not annoying like some narrators, just not in my top ten favorite female narrators.
