"A fantastically fun, HOT love story." - Kendall Ryan, New York Times bestselling author


Parental Guidance
Author: Avery Flynn
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Sports Romance
Series: Ice Knights


All I want is to play hockey on the Ice Knights, instead, I’m in a viral video for all the wrong reasons and my mom—yes, my mom—has taken over my dating apps. Then, when I think it can’t get any worse, the fates deliver Zara Ambrose, a five-feet-nothing redhead with more freckles than inches and who’d rather be anywhere other than on a date with me.
Now a bet with her friends and my PR nightmare have us both stuck in this go-on-five-dates-with-the-same-person hell situation. But if we band together, we can get the whole thing over with and go on with our lives. It’s perfect! No feelings. No future. No fuc— *ahem* fun. No naked fun.
What could go wrong? Nothing—as long as I remember the rules. Don’t notice the way she looks in a dress. Don’t react when she does that little shivery sigh thing whenever we touch. Don’t think about the fact that she’s never had a toe-curling orgasm that wasn’t self-delivered and just how badly I want to change that.
Five dates—that’s it—and then we go our separate ways. At least, that was the plan.

When I saw the synopsis of this book, it sounded a bit quirky and funny so I figured why not give it a chance?  I am glad that I did because this sports romantic comedy had me laughing and some places and happy sighing in others.  The concept behind the dating app, Bramble, is quite comical albeit unrealistic because it involves 5 dates and the parents are involved in picking out who they date followed up by TV interviews.  Both Caleb and Zara really don’t want to participate, but they each have their reasons for doing so. 

I really liked Caleb, a defenseman for the Iced Knights.  He lands himself in hot water and I admire that he would do what it takes to protect his team.  He has some personal struggles and the author does a beautiful job of showing how it has affected his approach to life.  Zara is a likable character as well.  She a miniatures artisan who craves stability and order given how she grew up.  She is full of sass and I love her sarcastic nature. Zara and Caleb make an unlikely pair, but the two of them together just work.   Each date is unique and fun to read and there are a few steamy scenes. The question is, will they admit their growing feelings towards each other and what will happen after those 5 dates?

The secondary characters are a hoot.  Zara’s dad is absolutely hilarious when they all have to do the reality TV portion.  Caleb’s mom is a ballbuster and I found the banter between the two parents to be quite entertaining.  Caleb’s teammates and Zara’s best friend are also great additions to the book.

If you are looking for a light-hearted romantic comedy with likable characters, then you will enjoy this book. I received Parental Guidance for free and I am looking forward to read more books from her Ice Knights series.

About Avery

  USA Today bestselling romance author 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’ staff 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.
