A hot hockey player, a quirky woman and a mischievous dog make for a fun, interesting, sexy story. ~ Kitty – Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews


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.


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. Thankfully, the Ice Knights have the wonderful Lucy to help fix their messes. What he didn’t count on was his mother Britany, the bad-ass of hockey, to be called in to help. There was no way he was going to allow her to take over his dating life until he heard the ultimatum. Then, he knew he had no choice but to go along with this scheme.

Zara just wanted to live her life making her miniatures. After watching what her father went through after mom, after all his schemes to make money, she doesn’t need a man. She just needs herself, her miniatures and her best friend Gemma. Steady, stable and predictable is how she lives her life and has no idea how she got herself roped into this Bramble thing. 5 dates … get it over with … make everyone happy … then she could go on with her life. Never, in her wildest dreams, would she have pictured herself dating Caleb. Nope, not her type, not going to happen after the 5 dates. Then something happened. They found out that they really liked each other and were actually having fun. So, as you know, it would not be an Avery Flynn Romantic Comedy without a beloved dog. And, yes, Anchovy stole the show. Then there was Jasper. What a card he was. Like I said, Avery Flynn’s imagination with both the mother and the father was unbelievable.

I also loved the banter between Caleb and his teammates. The ribbing he took about his mother, the secret he was keeping from them and the camaraderie on and off the ice was wonderful.

But, this is Avery Flynn. The writer of hot men, mischievous dogs, and strong, quirky women. I wouldn’t expect anything other than a fun, interesting, sexy story.
