From New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, comes a sexy new standalone novel.
He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska.
A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive.
When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours.
My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.
I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for the cocky bastard, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Melanie’s 4-Star Review:
Cocky Bastard a book written by two awfully talented authors; Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward and with these two? There was no question about it. This book had to be a must read.
I liked this book very much. They delivered a hero who definitely suited the book title. Chance came off every bit the cocky bastard that we were promised and though during the good first half, I didn’t quite understand the lure behind his brashness and didn’t really find the way in which he constantly teased Aubrey very funny. I thought that their initial interactions were going a thousand miles a minute. I mean, you’ve only met one another hours ago… How could you possibly trust each other enough to have done the sort of “adventures” that were written about? I’m not sure why this bothered me so much when obviously this is a work of fiction. It could be because I just felt so disconnected with the characters—the lack of finesse from Chance and how easily agreeable Aubrey was to all of his challenges… I don’t know.
But low and behold… The second half of this book is what I thought made the whole story. I loved the reason behind Chance’s decision, I did not at all see that coming and it has been a dang long time since a book has blindsided me. It was an awesome feeling. The best part about the second half for me? A second chance with Chance!!! Holy book boyfriends!!! THE Chance at this point in their story is the kinda guy that every girl dreams about wooing them. The extend in which I felt he grew and when that realization hits him? Oh Jesus, that boy just crawled his way right into my literary heart. I should also mention how much I ended up sympathizing with Aubrey and thought that her character definitely put her big girl panties and I appreciated seeing her character develop as well.
So while there were some rough parts for me in the beginning of Cocky Bastard, I honestly ended up enjoying the heck out of Chance and Aubrey’s story. It had a great progression, one heck of a plot twist, a whole lot of sexual tension, and a lovely brewing romance. A great end of the summer read with a hot Australian stallion who redeemed himself quite nicely in my book.
About the Authors:
Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn’t change for the world.

She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
