Product Description


Witty & HIGHLY addictive standalone with a surprising plot twist we didn't see coming! Confidently one of our top reads this year!! The Rock Stars of Romance
This will be, without question, one of my favorite reads for 2015! 5 stars from Lisa, Three Chicks and Their Books
To say that I loved this book would be an understatement. I binge read this unputdownable standalone. If there was a formula for a perfect book...this would be it. This second chance romance is absolute Kindle Crack. Cocky Bastard has the ideal mix of "the feels," romance, angst, drama and likable characters. This funny, sexy and sweet romance captivated me from the first page to the last. Be prepared to pull an all-nighter. Cheri, Kindle Crack
I absolutely am in love with this book! I could not put it down, simply because this book has everything in it, happiness, sadness, hope, dejectedness, humour, bloody fantastic characters and a brilliant storyline. Michelle, The Romance Vault
This book made me feel so many emotions but the first one was to laugh through the beginning! This Cocky Bastard is now one of my favorite books ever! Maria, Book Boyfriend Hangover"

Loved, loved, loved this book! I was really looking forward to reading this, and although it had mixed reviews I’m glad they didn’t put me off as it definitely deserves 5 big fat juicy stars plus another 5 for the goat…yes I said goat, I think Esmeralda Snowflake aka Pix may have stolen my heart.

I loved the dynamics of Chance and Aubrey’s story, it was engaging, laugh at loud funny, seductive, hot and left me wanting more! The banter and obvious sexual chemistry between the two characters was just the right mix that I love in a good book. A particular scene at the Grand Canyon left me almost peeing my pants with laughter. Chance cocky yes a bastard definitely not he was gorgeous, funny and sweet.

Devoured this book in one sitting and would highly recommend it…im hoping that although this book is a standalone there may be more to come from Chance, Aubrey and their adopted goat…

OK, I admit I may have had preconceived notions about the story, you know the title makes you think the main character is going to be a first class douche to begin with, then by some miracle redeems himself as the story progresses. I am more than happy to admit I was totally wrong. Cocky B is so much more, full of sass and sarcasm with endearing characters you can't help but root for from the beginning.

A chance encounter (pun intended) leads to life changing events between Chance and Aubrey. Aubrey is crossing the country, uprooting her entire life due to a cheating ex, a fresh start calls to her even if she still pursues a career she doesn't find especially fulfilling. She has always done what others have expected of her, never putting herself first. She is far braver than she gives herself credit for.

The chemistry between Aubrey and Chance is off the scale from initial eye contact, with the hint of something deeper from the beginning, the soul-mate principle in full effect. However, Chance slams barrier after barrier in their path making Aubrey lose more self-confidence. Although I would never have guessed the reasons behind Chance's barriers, they made perfect sense and added to the emotion of the narrative and my love of Chance.

Their road trip across the country is fraught with tension of the passionate variety, as well as tender, touching and humourous moments. I laughed so much at the visual of a fainting goat.

The story is told in to halves, the first half is in Aubrey point of view and covers the meeting and subsequent road trip with Chance. the second half is told from Chance's point of view and covers the events following the reason for the barriers (evasive I know but I don't want to spoil the plot for you).

Instantly fell in love with both Chance and Aubrey. Loved their chemistry during the road trip. Was devastated when they both went their separate ways. Fast forward two years and I found myself falling more in love with Chance and really rooting for him and Aubrey. Ooh, let's not forget their pet goat, Pixy, so funny. The story is dual POV, first half of the book Aubrey, second half Chance. It works well. Fab story with lots of love, sexual tension and humour.

This is my review for Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland on behalf of A Book Lovers Emporium.
5 stars
I really loved this book.
This is the story of Aubrey and Chance who meet at a service station and strike up a relationship of sorts. His Harley has broken down and he persuades Aubrey to let him be her passenger on the road trip to California.
Now this is America and this road trip is going to take 8/10 days .With good reason she is very apprehensive, she doesn't know him at all but he is as she calls him a "Cocky Bastard" which are his initials on his bike that stand for Chance Bateman. BUT he is full of charm and sex appeal, good looking and has a body to die for. Aubrey agree's and off they go picking up a goat along the way, which Aubrey names Esmeralda Snowflake !!!
I only got to chapter 2 in this book and I instantly knew I was going to love it. It was like a breathe of fresh air. Laughs a minute between these two, and Chance is so funny, quick witted and really charming in his own way with an Aussie accent that had Aubrey's toe's curling !! I honestly was laughing out loud at some of his banter, he is a sweetheart !!
She is leaving a broken relationship behind her and moving to a totally different state and he has lots of secrets of his own.
Will they, won't they ? Will they keep in contact when they get to California ? What are his secrets and will they destroy any chance of any happiness or to form a relationship.? You will have to read this book to find out !!
I read it in one sitting as I couldn't put it down !!
Very well written, and it keeps you engrossed all the way!! A superb book leaving you wanting more at the end.

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland make the perfect writing partnership, this book is a funny, sexy and a romantic love story. its a standalone with no cliff hanger.
Just by chance or fate, Aubrey meets up with Chance (yes that's his name) while she was making a rest stop and his Harley had broken down, as they were going in the same direction they decide to ride together.
Along the way there is some funny banter between the pair, and also some funny happening, but nothing as funny as finding a goat at the side of the road that had fainted, they decide to take the goat along with them for the ride on their road trip.
They have a sexual night together but in the morning Chance has left Aubrey in the hotel room, alone.
She waits around for a time hoping that he will come back, but he doeasn't.
Two years later Chance just has to go and find her, and win back her trust, she takes some talking around as she is has just started dating again, just when she thinks she has got Chance out of her system he turns up.
I enjoyed this story and hope to read more from Penelope and Vi in the future.
