Cocky Bastard

A Series of Standalone Novels

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books 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.

New. Favorite. Book. !!!

New. Favorite. Book. !!!

This is an EXCELLENT excellent HOT and excellent contemporary romance. I loved absolutely everything about it from the characters to the interesting pet to the conflict and especially the ending.

I was pulled in from the first page and could not tear myself away until I found out what ultimately happened to Aubrey and Chance.

Aubrey was fantastic to read because she was real. She was quirky and funny and stuck to what she believed in.

Chance was HOT. Period. His exchanges with Aubrey are so funny, but the latter half of the book…WOW. I’m almost embarrassed to have loved a fictional character THAT much!

I was so close to tears at several parts of this story. The emotions were conveyed so well and I FELT so much of what Aubrey and Chance were.

This is one of those books I will read more than once. I will read absolutely anything Vi and Penelope write in collaboration. ANYTHING. Well done, ladies!!!

One of my favorite books of 2015

It all started with a bobble-head...

As an avid reader and blogger, I get to read some pretty awesome books. And there are my go-to authors, people that I'll move right up to the top of my TBR every time. Imagine the universe aligning just right, so that two favorites write a book together. Perfection, all around. And, what a book it is.

COCKY BASTARD is the love-child of authors Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, and it is now one of my absolute favorite books of this year. I started reading and did not put it down. Chapter One had me laughing out loud, and I didn't stop until I was done with the epilogue. This is a total feel-good book, and Chance Bateman is the stuff that book boyfriends are made of. Cocky, as the title suggests, but with a heart of gold, he has Aubrey's number from the minute they cross paths at a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. To say that I love him would be an understatement.

This book is absolutely wonderful. Seeing the relationship between Aubrey and Chance unfold is by turns hysterical, tearful, and heartwarming. Their chemistry is full-blast, and I was pulling for a HEA from their first meeting. Throw in a goat named Pixy (although getting to that name is funny in itself), a super-helpful bartender, and Starbucks baristas that we all wish we had, and this read couldn't get any better. If I could give COCKY BASTARD any more stars, I would, but 6-stars and a place on my 'favorites' shelf it is, along with the decree that you move every other book down on your TBR and grab this one now. You will thank me later, I guarantee!


I highly anticipated this release and was not disappointed. Loved, loved, loved this story! Chance is amazing. Hot, funny and an accent! What more could a girl want?!
