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.... ...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 me... ...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 ful... ...more

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 de... ...more

Caleb is a hot shot hockey player that gains some bad PR when his teammates have a video go viral while talking about the women they have slept with. As a PR improvement campaign Caleb allows his mother to choose his date through a dating app and have his reactions filme... ...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 memorabl... ...more

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

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 c... ...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.

Caleb Stuckey plays for the Ice Knights, it’s all he wants to do. H... ...more

When Caleb finds himself on the receiving end of his mother and team's anger, it lands him in a tough position - he has to go on dates picked by his mother, that will be shown on social media. Zara is the lucky girl who gets to "date" Caleb.

I thought Parental Guidance was adorable! Caleb and... ...more

Neither are happy to be doing this but after they meet Zara and Cable agree to continue the required five dates to get it over with. Of co... ...more

Zara tends to just spit things out, “no,” she said, fanning her face with her hands, but the movement didn’t do anything to lessen the redness of her cheeks. “I’m not a virgin, and no, there is nothing wrong with being a virgin. I just don’t happen to be one.” Caleb tends to always tease about th... ...more

I am extremely lucky to have read Parental Guidance early and let me say this, YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE! Parental Guidance is Avery Flynn at her best.

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 pretty... ...more

BEFORE READING: Okay can we talk about how all these new romance covers are BEAUTIFUL? I'm loving them.

Caleb Stuckey is a defenseman for the Harbor City Ice Knights professional hockey team.

“He hadn’t realized it until this moment, but he’d been waiting for Zara Ambrose. No-relationship rule or not, he couldn’t lose her now.”

After being introduced to members of the Ice Knights hockey team in Tomboy, I was ecstatic to learn that Avery Flynn would be writing a spin-off series following different members of the team.

Mmmmm I love a good sports romance and ice hockey is my latest favourite. This one was cute, sweet, hot and definitely fun.

Another Avery Flynn, and it's another great one. I love her style, the way she writes her characters. Caleb and Zara are no exceptions.

Lost my heart to Anchovy, Zara's Great Dane. The dog is cute as a button and reminds me so much of my own dog (not a Great Dane, btw.).

Wonderful start to the Ic... ...more
