“A fantastically fun, HOT love story.” – Kendall Ryan, New York Times bestselling author
Parental Guidance, an all-new, sexy and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Avery Flynn, is available now!
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.

I tell you Avery Flynn has done it again. Another outstanding rom-com that will knock your socks off. This is the first book of the Ice Knights series, a spin off from The Hartigans series and I got to say that it is off to a brilliant start. Who doesn’t love a hot hockey player right?!?
Caleb is a good hockey player and person, but when he lets the newbies talk trash about women and it gets caught on film, he is the one to blame. In order to get his image and the image of the team back to greatness, Caleb must follow the plan laid out by the PR group. He has to let his mother set him up on a dating app and date who she picks. Since when did he want his mother picking out his dates. Ugh!! But his career as well as another’s is on the line.
Zara is a miniatures artisan. She wants to get her work noticed and to do that she must be her best friends plus one to a special auction. But her friend says she works to much and should get out more. So she blackmails Zara into a dating app and letting Zara’s father pick her date. Ugh! Why do they have to conspire against her.
Upon meeting Caleb, Zara is not sure she this will work. He is not only handsome, but he is famous. But these two come to an agreement to make it work. The only problem is…..how do they not fall in love?
This book was such a fun treat. It is full of snarky humor and good nature fun. The characters are not only fun but entertaining. Caleb is a great guy, whom people don’t give the benefit of doubt. He is really not what others make him out to be. He is kind, sweet and definitely not a man whore. Zara is sweet, blunt and very talented. The two fit perfect together and the chemistry is off the charts.
Overall the book is the perfect rom-com that I really enjoyed reading. After reading about the Ice Knights in the last Hartigan series, I was intrigued and hoping that Ms Flynn would continue their story. How exciting it is that she did that. This book flows nicely and is full of humor that will have you laughing out loud. The romance is perfect to give you that butterflies in your tummy feeling. This book can be read as a standalone, but if you want to get to know some of the other characters better then I would start with Butterface. You are sure to enjoy this sweet romance. So pick it up today.
“So why are you on Bramble?”She took another small bite from her roll before answering. “My best friend is blackmailing me, and my dad wants a SAG card.”That was definitely not the answer he’d been expecting. “And I thought my reasoning was twisted.”“I’m sure it all makes sense in Gemma’s head,” Zara said. “She thinks I work too much and need to loosen up. She’ll let me be her plus-one to go meet a collector if I do the Bramble five dates thing. And my dad? Well, let’s just say he’s never met an unlikely plan he didn’t think he could pull off.”All the possibilities this created sped around inside his head until one broke free like a perfect fast break late in the third period when the game was on the line. All he had to do was put the biscuit in the net.“So neither of us really wants to be here,” he said. “We’re each other’s solution to getting back to our regular lives as soon as possible.”It was fucking perfect. Petrov’s job with the team would be safe for another season—well, as safe as he could be, considering he didn’t have a no-trade deal in his contract.Zara, though, didn’t seem to be seeing the genius of it, going by the suspicious look she gave him as she took another bite of her roll. Instead of giving him a straight-up no, though, she started eating. The words—okay, begging pleas—were bubbling up inside him but for once, he kept it in lockdown. He wasn’t about to rush this play, no matter how it had every nerve in his body jinglejangling.Finally, she used her napkin to wipe the corners of her mouth, straightened her spine, and looked him dead in the eye. “We’d have to have ground rules.”“Sure. Whatever you want.” Ice Knights season tickets? He’d make that happen. A photo op with her dad’s favorite player? Done. Whatever it took, he’d do it.“This isn’t a real or fake relationship, it’s a temporary alliance,” she said without an ounce of humor in her tone. “I’m not pretending to be your girlfriend or the random chick you’re banging this week.”“Agreed.” All of that sounded like it would cause more problems than it would solve anyway. “I’ve got a condition. Dressing up is not required. I’m not putting on a suit.”The best thing about the off-season was not having to strangle himself with a tie multiple times a week just for a bus ride to the rink or a plane trip to another city. Coach Peppers was old-fashioned about doing things the original way.“Fine.” Zara held up three fingers. “The third stipulation is that I’m not putting on a good attitude. If it’s been a crappy day, I don’t have to pretend to be a manic pixie dream girl.” He snorted. “No one who’s met you would believe that. You’re a little salty.” That was putting it mildly based on her attitude when she showed up for their date.“I have my reasons.” She added another finger, so she was holding up four. “Oh, and no making love. Sex?” She paused and looked him over quickly. “Maybe. Emotional, heartfelt, staring-each-other-in-the-eyes making love? Not gonna happen. No offense, but you’re not my type.”What the hell? Not her type? He was a professional athlete making millions. He’d been led to believe he was everyone’s type.“Not a problem, since I don’t think we could see eye to eye while having sex unless you magically grew a foot,” he said.“You’re not into being creative?” Zara rolled her eyes. “I guess that’s expected for someone who has probably had women throwing themselves at him for years. You haven’t ever had to work for it.”Caleb had no idea what to say to that. He’d been punched square in the face by the most feared goons in hockey and it hadn’t knocked him as senseless as this little five-foot-nothing of a snarky woman had done with a few choice words. “I have one more rule,” she said, reaching for another roll. “Five dates and we’re done. Period. Do we have a deal?”
