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...

Laugh out loud lines
I eat genre books for lunch. I was partly through this romance when it struck me; this author was really, really good. Not only because the plot was clever and the characters believable, and the dialogue snappy, but because Avery Flynn could really, really write. I don’t often find that in a genre book, and honestly, I’m not looking for it, I’m just looking to be entertained. It’s comfort food for my mind. This book was that, but also deliciously crafted. Reading Parental Guidance was like setting out to get relaxed and slightly tipsy and discovering it was an expensive, fine wine I was sipping. You should try it; you’ll like it.
This is a cute, fun RomCom from Avery Flynn. Caleb Stuckey is in trouble with his Hockey team the Ice Knights over a viral video. His publicist, coach and mother decide that he needs to improve his image. They are going to have him team up with a new dating app, Bramble , and go on five dates with a woman his mother chooses. Zara Ambrose is a miniaturist artist, whose bff insists that she sign up with Bramble to improve her nonexistent love life. Caleb and Zara agree to go out on the five dates, laying down some strict rules (like not a relationship). Of course, they slowly break their rules and grow closer with each date. Both Caleb and Zara were likable, and the relationship was sweet. This book is a nice setup for future books featuring other players from the Ice Knights. I cannot wait for the next book!
