    4 StarsI’m currently kicking my own a for not reading this one sooner Why did I waited so long to read it? I honestly don’t know UghIt goes without saying you must read this one ASAP of course if you have it in your list if not add it immediately because I guarantee you won’t be disappointed If you are looking for a great mix of steam romance and humor look no further because 'Cocky Bastard' was exactly thatand “You’re not suggesting” “Yes Yes I am If I change your tire you let me ride with you” “Ride with me?” “Ride me yes” “What did you just say?” “You’re hearing things” Aubrey is on a road trip to California She needs a fresh new start after her douchebag now ex boyfriend cheated on her She left everything behind and took the first position she got as a lawyer at a small startup firm in Temecula CA Her road trip definitely changes for the better I would say when on the road she meets Chance a sexy arrogant man who gets on her nerves yet makes her hornier than she’d ever been “What’s CB stand for anyway?” “Those are my initials” “Let me guessCocky Bastard?” Chance is a sexy Aussie who used to be a professional soccer player He’s on his way home to California when his motorcycle dies on him Aubrey and Chance agree to travel together in Aubrey’s car after Chance fixes it for her AS time passes and they get to know each other Aubrey and Chance can’t deny the strong chemistry between them but they can’t forget they are headed in two different directions Something happens between these two and they are separated by some nasty circumstances “Chance was the only thing that felt right about my life right now—the only thing that felt like home for as long as I could remember” I really really enjoyed this one Like I mentioned above it has a little bit of everything which I truly enjoyed To be honest it was much better than I expected The story was simply fun and entertaining from start to finish It was refreshing it was hilarious and it was also sexy as hell The story is divided in two parts The firs one is from Aubrey’s POV and the second in Chance’s POV While the first is fun the second is ‘serious’ Personally I enjoyed the first part so I wouldn’t have minded the entire story to be that way – simple and fun That being said I think overall the storyline was delightful and the way the story was told was fantastic It kept me glued to the pages until the end “I had no idea where it came from; the confession just blurted itself from my lips “I pleasure myself Okay? Does that make you happy to hear?” Chance grinned “As a matter of fact it does” He shrugged “I pleasure myself too Aubrey In fact the next time I rub one out I’m going to picture you” Both Aubrey and Chance were endearing well developed characters I liked Aubrey and overall I enjoyed her personality She was fun sweet and even relatable But what made this book a great experience for me was Chance It seems I love a cocky bastard than I had imagined The man was sex on a stick gorgeous charming and delish from head to toe I really have to say loooved his cockiness the way he was with Aubrey and also his dirty smart mouth “Holy mother of all cocky bastards He was hung The thing was dangling than halfway to his knees I took a sharp breath in realized it was audible and uickly slapped my hand over my mouth I kept it there until he was completely dressed afraid a moan might slip out” As the story progresses we get to see his sweet and ‘ serious’ side And I liked this side of him as well The man for sure knew what he wanted which I liked Aubrey and Chance’s chemistry was really well done and the sexual innuendos and also their sexy times were fantastically done The dialogue between them in the first part were entertaining and I simply loved their witty banter The back and forth between them was really hilarious at times Now I have to mention a certain secondary character that almost stole the show for mealmost the baby goat who was so fcking cute and funny Love it All in all 'Cocky Bastard' was a very enjoyable read that will capture your attention from the beginning with many sweet and funny moments two endearing characters that will keep you on your toes for one reason or another and a lovely romance that will capture your heart “Sometimes it takes losing everything to make you realize what you really need”

    Picking Up A Hitchhiker Never Looked So GoodThis book was a little slow going for me at first but once it got going I couldn't put it down 'Cocky Bastard' was funny and entertaining I mean where else am I going to find a book about a road trip with a blind fainting goat? It was those uirky little things that made this book for meIn a nutshell Aubrey picks up a hot Aussie Chance when she is driving cross country to California after ditching her cheating ex Chance fixes her car in exchange for a ride She begrudgingly agrees There is an instant physical attraction and soon the two are falling in loveBy the time they make it to the final stretch of their road trip they're both head over heels and neither wants to face the inevitable end of their time together They make the most of their last day together having a pretend wedding followed by a very hot pretend honeymoon nightAfter their steamy night together Aubrey is certain that she is completely in love with Chance She's also certain that he left her without even saying goodbye when she wakes up the next morning She is devastatedTwo years later after Aubrey's finally got her life back on track Chance makes a reappearance in her life To say she's angry and distrustful is putting it mildly She still loves him but she's not ready to admit that to herself and certainly not to himAfter a lot of wooing groveling and romantic gestures things finally work out the way I wanted There is nothing worse than a heroine that lacks a spine and simply rolls over when the Hero screws up badly and just says he's sorry So while I did think that the punishment phase dragged on a bit I appreciated that she didn't just let him off the hook easy after all that heartacheI really enjoyed this story and the characters Honestly though Esmerelda Snowflake aka Pixy was my favorite I loved that damn goat I'm curious about the house training details but I guess it could happen Overall a great love story with bits of humor throughout The ending is predictable but that didn't make it any less enjoyable for me The details were original and very entertaining Picking up a hitchhiker never looked so good

    Type StandalonePOV First Person DualRating Aubrey Bloom uprooted her life and moved cross country for a fresh start In the middle of the long road trip to California she took a break at a rest stop only to continue the journey with one extra passengerChance Bateman a cocky Aussie guy was also heading to the same destination when his bike broke down He made a deal with Aubrey so he could hitch a ride What started as a simple ride uickly turned into something else as they took detours in the trip and in life I saw this book a lot on my GR feed when it first came out and it got me intrigued I’ve read a book by Penelope Ward but not Vi Keeland so I thought this might be a good way to break into a new to me author I’m glad I ended up enjoying this one I stocked up on typical stalker snacks Fun dip Sour Patch Kids popcorn and of course Pixy Stix The cashier looked at me like I might be luring kids into the back of my van at the corner of the local elementary school Chance was an easy to love character Besides being physically hot with a juicy biteable ass he also spoke with Australian accent And yes I did read all his dialogue in my head with an Aussie accent haha He’s also very funny with his sexual innuendos Aubrey was the uptight one but she could keep up with him She had a certain level of vulnerability that I like “When I say scared the shit out of himI now mean literally Bugger took a dump all over your backseat” One of my favorite characters in this book is definitely the goat Yes one of the reasons I chose to read this book is because of the damn goat hahaThe story was divided into two parts The first part was light and hilarious so I didn’t expect the second part to have a different tone The book has a split personality because the second parts was serious and even a little angsty with bits of comedy sprinkled in between But I don’t have problem with that and I actually like it that way because you get to see a different side of the characters Cocky Bastard is an entertaining and amusing story about taking chances and fighting for what you want It’s a good choice if you’re looking for something light but also fulfilling Note I need to try some cock sauce hahaFor reviewsrevealsgiveaways visit

    I expected a lot from this book considering its high rating but sadly it didn’t uite live up to the hype Spoiler alertI excitedly went into this book and it had me hooked from the first page Although Chance isn’t my type of hero He was such a tease I’m not a fan of playful pushy and cocky guys I really did enjoy the first half But alas the second half was a catastrophe for me and I didn’t enjoy it at all Honestly I couldn’t stand Aubrey She was selfish and wishy washy She didn’t want to break up with her boyfriend Richard but at the same time didn’t want to let Chance go either It seemed like she kept giving him hope that she would let him back into her life again It was freaking unfair to both guys This was so damn frustrating Aubrey listen to me It’s impossible to eat your cake and have it too womanShe said she didn’t want to cheat on her boyfriend but as far as I can see she’d already done that not physically but emotionally In my opinion emotional infidelity is far worse than physical affair I hated that she wasn’t honest with Richard and kept him in the dark about Chance It doesn’t matter whether there was sex involved or not I still call it cheatingThere was one scene in this book that almost made my head explode When Richard knocked on her door unexpectedly she chased Chance away told him to slip out the backdoor Hell I saw red I hated how she treated him So damn unacceptable It got me pissed off to the whole new level At that moment I didn't even want to continue reading it anyWell after calming myself down I picked it up again and kept reading And see what I found near the end of the story When Aubrey eventually made up her mind that she wanted to be with Chance she had a nerve asking him if he was seeing someone Ha I have no words Shakes head in disbeliefHowever I really loved Pixy the blind baby goat Actually I like the name ‘Esmerelda Snowflake’ better than ‘Pixy’ He apparently was the best thing that ever happened in this book Such a cute little thingSo to sum up my whole rant—the first half got 5 stars from me without a doubt but for the second half 1 star was than it deserved Due to my generosity I ended up giving this one 3 starsSorry for my long rant

    This duo is killing me And this book is helping them I know I'll repeat myself but i can't help it Penelope in every combination is amazing solo or with Vi I love her and her books will always the first in my TBR listCocky bastard was brilliant and the funniest in the series from my point of view The plot is insanely simple but Penelope and Vi made it sexy and charming for us readers Aubrey picks up an Aussie Chance when she is driving across the country to California after splitting up with the boyfriend who cheated on her Her car breaks down and Chance helps her fix it in exchange for a ride They click almost immediately and soon fall in love Aubrey is extremely independent but a little unsure of herself After the cheating aspect she is reluctant to start a new relationship but with Chance she considers giving it a shot Chance is funny as hell smart and good looking a former athlete who now poses for calendars for a living Their trip to California transforms into a live changing experience and after that they will never be the same again Chance shows Aubrey how to live and feel again giving yourself up to temptation and not regretting it for a second Their relationship was based on instant chemistry and there also was a slow burn because visibly something was keeping Chance guarded in showing his attraction to Aubrey The book is divided into the 2 parts I'm so afraid of in Penelope's books After the first part where they fall in love we have the second part that scares me to death The aftermathBut this one please discover on your own I loved the chemistry between the characters OMG it was insane and I wanted to literally go in the book and hook them up already They were so good for each other and took them so long to realize it After discovering what kept Chance in giving Aubrey his heart I was devastated but hoped that their destiny will change and have the happy ending they deserve In the second part we get to see another Chance strong and determined to get his love back You will swoon on his attempts and love him even The originality of the story was a bonus for me but mostly the intensity of it and the humorous passages made the delight of this book A wonderful story of second chances and instant chemistry 4 goats to go with it
