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.

## What the heck is up with Blake's speech pattern? Why does he talk like a pubescent junior high girl? Maybe it's supposed to be cute, but it's annoying the crap out of me. Calling Grandma Canning "Grancam", or instead of "same" he says "samesies", "we boned down", "cheezus", "J-bomb" and J-babe". Also, he grabs the heroine's butt walking down the aisle, and he sneaks in her in bed uninvited while she's sleeping holding her breast? That's so far from cute. I don't want to give up on this story, but that's it for tonight. I will pick it back up tomorrow once I'm less annoyed. I will revise my review if it gets better. Up to page 105 so far.

As much as I loved Him/Us, I'm sad to say this one didn't live up to that standard. While I still enjoyed the story I did have to struggle my way through parts. I really wish the "not like other girls" line didn't make its way into this and the whole "she's mine and just needs to accept it" trope wasn't the way the relationship originated. I hope the next WAGS book is just as good as Him/Us was and doesn't slip into unhealthy tropes like this book did at times.

4.5 Stars I have a new word in my vocabulary it's "CHEEZUS" and I bet any of you who read this book will be loving this word. If you have read Him or Us you would have already met Wes and Jamie and this story is about Jamie's sister Jess and Wes's teammate Blake, it's also the first book in a new series WAGs. This book had me laughing out loud and smiling like a Cheshire Cat, the banter and chemistry between Jess and Blake is off the chart and I loved catching up with Wes, Jamie and the rest of the hockey team. If you are looking for a fun read and sports romance is your thing this is a must read. Fantastic start to a new series.

So much fun watching two characters take their own sweet time figuring it all out... and some puppies!

This story was cute and actually told a story. It has lies, sex, sadness, romance and love all entwined. Yes, some of the other reviews are to the point, but give me a break, it is suppose to be funny and he's suppose to be juvenile. So it works in a relationship type of way. One is more serious and the other has a different way of always seeing the good in things. So I'm just going to say read and enjoy. It is a good read.

Blake and Jessaica are both great characters on their own. Even better together.

Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy are such a good writing duo! Good Boy has all the necessities that make a great read. The chemistry between Jess and Blake is hot, hot, hot and I was so happy when Jess stopped fighting the attraction. I enjoy a sexy read as much as the next person but it's also nice to have more dimensions to the story and Blake definitely adds comedy as well as his own vocabulary. I loved the book and I highly recommend it.

I was unable to put this book down! I started reading at about 10pm and was up until 2am unable to stop and go to sleep, believe me I tried a couple of times but I just couldn't do it. Blake totally won my heart from the very beginning, I mean he's kind of over the top and obnoxious but that just adds to his charm, I kept laughing at the things he said and how he talked, he is a genuinely good guy and he even made me tear up a couple of times. I identify with Jess so much because I've felt like her a few times in my life and it was so great to see her grow as a person and gain confidence in herself. These two together were electric, I loved the hate you/love you vibe that they had from the beginning and that is mainly because of Blake, believe me this guy will make you grin like crazy in this book. This writing duo can do no wrong, they keep delivering heartfelt stories with incredible characters. I can't wait to explore this new world.

Blake is that nutty, endearing character introduced earlier but now fleshed out. Blake's hilarious conversation had me laughing out loud in public while reading this book. It was a fun read and I look forward to more in the series.

I love a good book that makes you laugh and draws you in so much that you can't put it down. This book was definitely that kind.

If 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.

This 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.

Cheezus! This book was amazing! Him and Us are hands down two of my top reads. Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy know how to bring humor, romance and heat to their stories. When I read Us and got a glimpse of Blake and Jessie together, I needed more. Good Boy can be read as a standalone, but I definitely recommend starting with Him/Us - why would you want to miss out on Jaime and Wes's story???? What I love about this book: ~ The writing. Whether their writing individually or together, Sarina and Elle write a story that is easy to read, pulls at my heart and makes me laugh and fall in love. They know the key ingredients to make a good book and this one had everything I look for in a great read. ~ Blake. CHEEZUS. I love this character. He comes across as a total goofball - and he is - he's loud, funny and a total hornball. But he's also loyal and loving and romantic. I love his family - Mama Riley especially. ~ Jess. What a great heroine. She's going back to school for yet another career change and doesn't want to disappoint her family. I was rooting for her from the start. She tries to resist Blake's charms...but you know how that goes. ~ Friends turned lovers. These two both have committment/relationship issues. Blake was burned in the past and Jess is in school - no time for a new relationship. But they are drawn together and I LOVE how much chemistry they have. ~ Jaime and Wes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God I love these two guys. I love that they were a part of this book and I got to see them married and happy. Did I mention you should start with Him and Us?? Please, even if you don't like m/m books, give it a try. ~ The feels. I laughed, I lusted, I got a bit misty eyed and I swooned. I was rooting for these two to end up together. Reading this book put a goofy smile on my face almost the entire time. Bottom line: READ THIS BOOK!!!!! Highly recommend!

Blake Riley is a literary unicorn. If you’re looking for a hot & steamy romance that will make you laugh til’ you cry, look no further my friend. Good Boy has you covered! I’m pretty sure Blake Riley and his “Blakeisms” will stay with me for a long time and I’ll find myself incorporating his silly sayings into my day to day conversations. I give Good Boy 5 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars! Insert a good dog/hockey pun here because I wracked my brain trying to think of one and couldn’t come up with anything either witty or cleaver. LoL #Cheezus Xo-K *I was generously given an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
