COCKY BASTARD by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland – Jacque’s Review



Fan of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland and was given the ARC.



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.

After catching her boyfriend cheating, Aubrey is on her way to California to start fresh.  The last thing she expects to be doing is trekking across country with the very gorgeous yet very cocky guy, Chance,  who just happens to be an ex Australian soccer star.  Although we see Chance as definitely fitting the “Cocky Bastard” role, Aubrey comes to find there is more to him.  And Chance loves that he has finally met someone that he can be himself around and not someone looking for something from the ex soccer star.  And boy do they go on quite the adventure!!!

This one was awesome!!! I really loved these characters.  They had some great chemistry and their constant wit  had me cracking up throughout the book.  It’s a very easy read and before you know it, you’ve finished it.

I can’t say enough about the story, the characters, the humor and OMG, what about that cover??? Holy HOTNESS! And an Aussie accent to boot??? *sigh*  I’m such a sucker for an accent.  That cover definitely makes you want to open the book.  I would have read this book without ever reading the synopsis with that cover!

I can already tell you this book will be on my favorites of 2015!!!
