Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward – Cocky Bastard Series

in Reading Order Guide:

Tee hee! I don’t even know if that’s what the “series” is called, considering each book is a standalone, but since that’s the name of book #1 and each book-hero sounds like a cocky bastard and that seems to be the theme of the series, so I’m going with it. ;) For now. LOL!! Plus there’s even a book #3 on the way. YAY US!!

Oh!! I just received confirmation from Penelope Ward. She says:

“Yes! So, this is the Cocky Bastard series. It’s a series of standalones by Vi Keeland and myself all about different couples who meet during chance encounters. *There may or may not be more books in the series after that. But three for sure now!”

And guess what?!! Book #2 (Stuck-Up Suit) JUST WENT LIVE early (and the premise has me wanting to one-click badly!!). He’s gorgeous and she sees him on a subway, and he’s yelling at someone on his phone, and then he storms off but drops his phone… and she picks it up. Tee hee!!!

Fabi: To appease your curiosity, and because you already know I’m a blabbermouth and can’t resist commenting on everything, here’s what I thought of Cocky Bastard: I am so impressed with both the female and male POVs in this book. I could swear Aubry and Chase are real people. 5 big, beautiful, love story stars for this one A big thank you to both authors for making me feel all girly, and mushy, and starry eyed. Books like these are the chocolate truffles for my soul.

Linda: Fabi I totally agree with you!!! Cocky Bastard is hands down a 5* read for me for 2015. Absolutely swooned over Chase and loved Aubrey too.

Grey: Cocky Bastard, omg… Making me laugh so hard I cry!

Anne: I loved Cocky Bastard too! Chase was so perfect! *sigh*

marina: I loved Cocky Bastard too.

Jean: Just finished Cocky Bastard and I loved, loved, loved it! …if you love Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, and you haven’t done so yet, you must read Cocky Bastard!

Chris: Oh Maryse, you have to read Cocky Bastard! It was one of my favorite reads of 2015. Laugh out loud funny but still angsty, with a swoony H with an Austrailian accent and hands down the best animal mascot I’ve ever read in a book. Loved it and I’m so excited to read their latest!!

About book #1:

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.

I’m halfway through Stuck Up Suit and I can’t put it down! I actually have to go to work tonight and I’m trying to think of ways I can sneak a chapter or two because it’s that good!!

I didn’t know she was making this a series! *Immediately one click* I loved Cocky Bastard, the perfect combination of comedy and angst. Not to mention the cover and “The Butt” teehee

Perfect. Just what Im in the mood for. Loved Cocky Bastard (it featured in my top 2015 books), so this one is a no brainer. Click!!
