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 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?

Eilish Cassidy has always been a sensible girl. She isn’t the sort to have her head turned by boys or celebrity, after all, her cousin is ruby star Sean Cassidy.
It’s on the evening of her cousin’s wedding that she meets a player she has secretly admired from afar, Bryan Leech. He’s more than she could ever have expected and Eilish can’t help but think she’s found her Prince Charming.
When the sun rises, in place of our prince is an intoxicated frog. It’s horrifying for Eilish to discover he was drunk the whole time. She’s hurt and embarrassed, but the consequences of that night mean it will be one she will never forget.
Five years later, she’s making a way for herself and her son, Patrick. Coming face to face with Bryan is a hazard of her role of the ruby teams physiotherapist. With the shame of not even being remembered by him is the guilt and fear of the secret she is keeping mum about.
Bryan was a villain for all of five minutes. It’s clear his vast transformation is genuine and I became his cheerleader almost straight away. Although he does not remember Eilish then, he’s certainly enamoured with her now.
“I want you, Eilish. I want you with every breath I take.”
Cosway and Reid go together like all the great the combinations you can think of. It’s always a quirky, refreshing experience reading their perfectly imperfect, lovable characters.
About Penny Reid:
SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).
By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
