“Although it didn’t hit the spot for me if you like sexy hockey players, feisty red heads and adorable Great Danes then you need to give it a try.”
~ Under the Covers

Caleb wants people to know him because of his on ice hockey skills playing for the Ice Knights. Not for a viral video which makes him look like an asshole. He needs his image fixed. So what could be more wholesome than being the face of a new dating app where your parents pick your date? Zara doesn’t know why she signed up for the new dating app where your parents pick your date. Oh wait, yes she does…tequila and a devious best friend. When Zara and Caleb meet, they come up with a deal, 5 dates with no feelings or body parts involved. And definitely no falling in love.

The fake relationship trope isn’t one I deliberately seek out and it’s not because I dislike them. It’s just that I find the predictability a little boring. Although, of course most romance books have a certain predictability factor. However, there’s just something particularly formulaic about a fake relationship, or atleast the ones I have read. Parental Guidance fell into this trap, so although I did enjoy this book, there were points I found myself drifting off and losing interest.

However, this book was fun. I enjoyed the banter between the hero and the heroine and I particularly enjoyed the parts told from the heroine’s POV. Zara was smart with a little snark and I loved her sense of humour. The chemistry between Zara and Caleb was great, even if I didn’t quite buy the i-love-yous at the end they definitely had the beginning of something special.

If you want an upbeat romantic comedy this summer Parental Guidance is a great place to start. Although it didn’t hit the spot for me if you like sexy hockey players, feisty red heads and adorable Great Danes then you need to give it a try.

About Avery Flynn

Smartass. Chocaholic. Writer of romance with smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents.
Biography
Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Find out more about Avery on her website, follow her on Twitter and Pinterest, like her on her Facebook page or friend her on her Facebook profile. She’s also on Goodreads and BookLikes.

Join her street team, The Flynnbots, and receive special sneak peeks, prizes and early access to her latest releases!

Also, if you figure out how to send Oreos through the Internet, she’ll be your best friend for life.
