Read Chapter One of Cocky Bastard HERE:
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.
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 bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!

Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. She grew up in Boston with five older brothers and spent most of her twenties as a television news anchor, before switching to a more family-friendly career. She is the proud mother of a beautiful 10-year-old girl with autism and a 9-year-old boy. Penelope and her family reside in Rhode Island.
I was completely enchanted by Chance and Aubrey. Cocky Bastard turned out to be so much more than I could’ve ever predicted it to be. Actually, I’m not really surprised at all because I have enjoyed everything that Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland have ever written.
I absolutely loved this book. If he were real, I would kidnap Chance and make him mine. I would even consider getting a goat if that’s what it took to make him happy. Honestly, he might be my favorite book boyfriend of the summer.
Cocky Bastard starts with unexpected encounter that turns into an incredible road trip, one which changes the two main characters forever. The moments between Chance and Aubrey are awesome. Their scenes are filled with quick wit and lots of sexual tension. I loved the feeling of excitement that built within me as they each discovered someone who brought out such passion and affection. I had a reading contact high.
And then unexpectedly, my heart was crushed. I wasn’t the only one though – I think that it was just as difficult for Chance and Aubrey as it was for me. The course that this romance is on is not easy – the trust that needs to be earned and happily ever after moment everyone desires is hard fought for. But you are rooting for this couple every single step along the way.
It was an incredibly entertaining romance – I was consumed by this book. I loved every single moment and it is a top recommendation from me and I highly suggest you start reading Cocky Bastard today.
