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...

After being introduced to the Ice Knights in Tomboy I was hoping with all hope that we would get to see these guys again. So I pretty much squealed and then jumped on the chance to read this book as soon as I learned there was going to be a series for these players. And ...more

What an adorable story. Sometimes when life is a little on the crazy and emotional side, I love to just dig into something fun and light. This totally fit that bill. It was cute, funny and just a little bit zany. The characters are easy to like with both good and bad qualities to them that made them ...more

This was a cute read,light hearted and fun read!I really enjoyed it I just felt it was too short in my opinion.I wish we had more.The concept behind the dating app was fun,refreshing and interesting.

I really liked Caleb and Zara they were a great match!She was sassy and he was sexy and ...more

Avery Flynn has one hell of a wild imagination and it truly came across in Parental Guidance. This was a frantic ride up walls, down zip lines and across slippery ice but it was a ride that I wouldn’t have missed for anything.

Caleb knew he messed up and had no idea how he was going to fix his mess. ...more

When I started reading this book I had a hard time. So I put It to the side and came back later. Well I loved it. I was glad I had returned to it. I guess I was in a book that lol.. I loved the aspect of this book. The way they meet thru there parents and their first date is a riot. I can't wait to ...more

Cute! I enjoyed this quite a lot and I absolutely loved Anchovy!! Caleb and Zara both struggle with being "forced" to date. Neither want a relationship and come up with some rules to avoid it. The rules don't work. This was a good solid read and just missed a 5 for me because I just could not fully ...more

This was such a heart-warming and sweet experience of a read! Easy to follow and quick to read - a perfect combination for the self-isolation book list.

Parental Guidance is the first book in Avery Flynn’s Ice Knights series, a spin-off from her Hartigans series. Although it is not necessary to read the Hartigans books first, I do recommend reading them for a lot of fun. When you reach the end of Tomboy, the third book in the series, you’ll be despe ...more

Here are some of my thoughts:
• I liked Caleb. He was so kind and sweet to Zara. I loved all the bits of character building with his mom being a coach and a hard-ass and his dyslexia and trauma from that one teacher. I felt like his character was built considerably well because those bits showed why ...more

By Lindsay June 26, 2019

While this is a new series, it's set in the same town as most of the other Avery Flynn books and functions pretty well as a sequel to Tomboy. But if you're new to this writer, this is a good place to start, as these are mostly standalone.

In this we have Caleb Stuckey, a hockey player and memorable c ...more

I've given this a B for narration and a B- for content at Audiogals; so that's 3.5 stars rounded up.

This was a fun, easy read! I loved Zara and Caleb. I didn't quite get why he was the one who got in all the trouble for the video since he never opened his mouth, but I loved the result of his punishment :) ...more

A really enjoyable read. I'm not a fan of sports romance and I wanted to change that so I picked up this book with a low expectations and that is probably why I had a really good time while reading . ...more

It's late so I need to get to bed, but this was sweet, steamy, and super consumable. I read it in two sittings over the course of a day and I'm so glad it was recommended to me. If you're a
"fake dating" fan who also loves some hockey, this is the contemporary for you.

This book had such a perfectly hilarious and adorable meet-cute. The banter, the situations, all of it were so much fun! I couldn't help but really fall in love with both main characters as well as the side characters that helped to make everything happen. Like I loved Zara's dad and his little comm ...more

5 Star Review Parental Guidance (Ice Knights #1) by Avery Flynn

Avery Flynn is a new author to me and I have no idea why that is. So when the opportunity to read and review book one in a new series came up, I jumped at the chance.

Parental Guidance was basically Kim catnip. Fake dating, meddlesome parents, sassy heroine and sexy hockey player? Hello, right up my alley. This is 100% a literally-laugh-out-loud-with-a-cheesy-grin-on-your-face book. The sexy times were prett ...more
