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.

Cocky Bastard is about one sexy Aussie named Chance and a lawyer named Aubrey.   Aubrey’s car filled to the brim with her life, Chance on his Motorcycle.  A random meeting at a rest stop in the middle of nowhere Nebraska led to one wild bobble head ride that I was happy to be a passenger on!!

This book was a wild, delicious, funny and extremely sexy ride.  You will laugh, you’ll probably cry and you will certainly fall in love with this “Cocky Bastard”.   After the meeting at the rest stop, Chance and Aubrey find themselves on what I call an amazing trip out to CA.  Aubrey was just in a relationship where she had been hurt and was very closed off but Chance saw through that hard shell exterior and slowly broke down her walls.  Only problem was, by doing so Aubrey was starting to fall but Chance seemed to be trying to hold back.

What happens when feelings turn into hot lusting desire?  A connection that seemed unlikely at first meeting but has evolved into something undeniable.  Someone is bound to get tied up in all this and hurt.  One thing is for certain, it’s not an easy road that will be traveled by either of these two lovable characters.

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland hit a home-run with Cocky Bastard.  This book has it all.  Laughs, love, tears, hot steamy scenes and even an unlikely guest that is sure to capture your heart.   *Baaaaaaa* I give this book 5 sexy Pixy Stix Stars!!  I Would take a road trip with Chance any day of the week!
