Cocky Bastard

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From New York Times Bestsellers, Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

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 him, 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.

Customer Reviews


I loved it, i cried and laughed,ahhhg so awesome read!!!

Sweet, sexy, and laugh-out-loud funny!

With a name like Cocky Bastard, it has to be good, right? Turns out, it’s even better than good–it’s fabulous!

Honestly, I wasn’t sure of what to expect when I first started reading. I knew from the blurb that it was going to be a funny story about a road trip, but it ended up being so much more than that. It’s a roller coaster of emotions, and it was a fantastic ride that I didn’t want to be over. The story definitely turned me into a warm, gooey mess by the end, that’s for sure.

This book has it all: dialogue, storyline, characters, sweetness, sexiness, regret, second chances, and best of all, humor. I was laughing so hard at one point I had to stop reading–it’s kind of hard to read with tears rolling down your cheeks. (BTW, who knew that goats could be so funny?!?)

Speaking of the dialogue, it is witty, laugh-out-loud-funny, and dripping with double entedres. Chance is definitely my new favorite smart-assed dirty-talker (sorry, Drew!). While Aubrey may be restrained and regimented, she is no shrinking violet and she’s a good counter-balance to Chance’s bold cockiness. She definitely holds her own, and together, they are pretty amazing. Their road trip and relationship is anything but ordinary, and I loved every minute of it!

Having previously read books by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, I knew they were good writers, but this book was an unexpected surprise. (In fact, Stepbrother Dearest was one of my favorite reads last year.) I certainly hope this isn’t the last time they collaborate with each other. I’m willing to bet you will be saying the same thing after reading this. Penelope and Vi are brilliant together!

Wonderfully "Cocky Bastard"!!!

WOW!! "Cocky Bastard" is Unbelievably Fantastic!!! What a wonderful story thru ups and downs & laughing and crying. WOW!! LOVE IT!!!
