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..

First I would like to thank Entangled Publishing for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was definitely an interesting book and I really wished that I loved it more because the idea was really great!

These two characters you could totally feel the push and pull factor between them, it was undeniable. As much as they hated the fact that everything they did became this public spectacle, you can feel how much they really do like one another... even if they didn't want to admit it.
Personally I felt like it was missing something to really up the dramatics. I felt like the pivotal moment wasn't "OMG" enough for me to really be so involved in their story, and it seemed like everything just resolved within like a chapter, and I just couldn't connect there.

Can we just take a second to talk about Anchovie, because he became the star! Let me tell you, any book that involves kids or animals is like an immediate hook to me! I LOVED the interaction between the two of them with Anchovie, he was just hilariously cute!

This was a good rom-com with a few bits of steaminess, and it had the potential in my opinion to be even better had the climax been more dramatic for my tastes, but this was a very quick-paced and fast read! I did find myself laughing a lot which was great with the interaction with friends and family... I mean his mom sets him up on dates, it can't get any more humiliating than that!

That's all for my review of Parental Guidance, I hope you liked it, and honestly I can't wait to pick up book two, because the dynamic between the characters was refreshing!

Until the next time, Keep Reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm!! :)
