Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland


Blurb

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.

Excerpt 

A knock at the door made me jump.

With a huff, I got out of bed and stood on my tiptoes to look out the peephole.  Why were those things always so high on the door anyway?  I was surprised to find no one standing on the other side.  Maybe I’d imagined it.

Another knock. 

I flicked on the lights. The sound wasn’t coming from the entrance door.  It was coming from an interior door I hadn’t even noticed before.

Chance’s door.

I unfastened the top lock and cracked it open just enough so I could see what he wanted.  And there he stood.

Shirtless.

Wearing only dark gray boxer briefs that hugged him like a second skin.

It took a minute to understand what he was doing there, even though he was holding up a toothbrush in question.

“I thought we had established I wasn’t a serial killer already.”

I opened the door wider. 

He smiled. 

Oh lord.  Stop that.  Right now.

“I must have left my toothpaste in my saddlebag in the car.”

I swallowed hard.  “Uh huh.”

He cocked his head to the side, and his brows dipped in.  “Can I borrow yours?”

“Oh.  Yeah, sure.” 

He walked past me and let himself into my bathroom.  I waited at the door. 

“You got an awful lot of girly crap in here for one night,” he said with a jumbled mouth full of toothpaste from the bathroom.  “Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia.” 

He was reading my Estee Lauder perfume bottle. 

I heard him rinse and spit.  Then there was a gargling sound.  He used my mouthwash, too.  Sure, help yourself. 

He walked out and flicked off the bathroom light.  “Is tuberose a rose?”

I shook my head, still confused by the whole situation going on.

“That’s why,” he murmured.

“Why what?”

“I couldn’t figure out what you smelled like all day.  Not sure I ever smelled a Tuberose before.”  He shrugged and walked back into his room but not before turning back.  “Even those little black lacy underwear smell like tuberose.”

My eyes bulged.  I’d taken off my bra and panties and left them on the bathroom counter.

“You…you—”

“Relax.  I’m teasing.  Do I look like an underwear sniffer to you?”

Yes. 

No. 

Maybe?

“Night, Aubrey.” He graced me with a dimple and disappeared.

AH-BREE.  Damn him.

I locked the door and checked it twice, unclear if it was for my safety or his.  His voice saying my name was on audio replay inside my head, getting softer and softer like a soothing lullaby with each breath as I drifted off to dreamland.

Until the knock came again.



Let's talk about this cover for a minute. holy crap the model Nick Ayler is scrumptious and deliciously sexy.
So here is what I thought:  This is a Spectacular read. There was an instant connection not only between Aubrey and Chance but with me as well. I felt invested from their very first encounter and it only got better from there. 
Aubrey and Chance met at a rest stop. Both moving toward a life changing step in their lives. 
Chance was super sweet and let's not forget yummy. Aubrey was super sweet I liked her immediately. 
They meshed well even when they were fighting. To be honest I was a bit worried there for a bit. But Chance did amazing although a tad stalkerish. Ok so I have to mention the goat, yes you read it correctly, Esmeralda, Mutton or Pixy you will love this. Totally out of left field, but it somehow added a fun weird element to this romantic read. 
This is a standalone and is co written seamlessly by two amazing authors.
So, go run and grab this so you can meet Cocky and Princess.
Happy Reading!
