Goodreads says it's my second read, but I actually don't remember reading this book. So, it was like a first read. After reading Stuck-Up Suit and the final mention of an Aussie guy giving advice while waling a goat, I imagined that had to come from somewhere, it was extremely random. Hahaha So, after searching, I saw that it was this book and I got right to it and I loved it. It was funny but also meaningful. I loved the chemistry and the spark they had and how much effort Chance put in trying to win her back. Great book!!
Favorite quotes: "'You're not suggesting...' 'Yes. Yes, I am. If I change your tire, you let me ride with you.' 'Ride with me?' 'Ride me, yes.' 'What did you just say?' 'You're hearing things.'"
"'We need to eat.' 'So, we'll get breakfast out?' I stupidly asked. 'Yes, breakfast. What else would I be eating out?' Uh."
"'What do you say we go find a hotel near here, have a nice dinner, hot showers and call it a night. I'd like to sleep in your bed, too.' 'What did you say?' 'I said I'd like to sleep in a bed, too.' 'Oh.'"
"Chance glanced over at me, a solemn look on his face at first, then a slow grin spread wide. 'You want to sin with me, Princess?' Did I ever."
"Sometimes, those who put up the biggest shields are those who are protecting the biggest hearts."
"(...) and it was time I took control of the situation. I am a woman, damn it. Hear me roar."
"I cranked up the music, put two Coronas in the freezer to chill, and might have danced with a goat."
This is my first book by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland (together and apart). I know, I'm a lot behind, but I'm fixing this now!
It was interesting, because, as I said, I haven't read any other books by them, but I've been stalking them for a while, and reading their posts, reading what people say about their books, reading the blurbs, I was already a fan!! I loved reading anything and everything about them even before reading their books!
So when I started reading Cocky Bastard I was both excited and afraid. I was excited because I was finally getting a chance to read them and I couldn't wait for it, but I was afraid that my expectations were too high and at the end of the book I might be "eh...ok". But when I started reading...OHHH!! At the first few pages I was already smiling and laughing and "Ohhing" and "Ahhing" and I didnt want to do anything else but read!
Chance and Aubrey were so damn sweet!! Like amazingly sweet, and not just "oh, ok, that is sweet, regular, ordinary". Nooo it was melting-my-heart sweet! It was why-did-it-take-me-so-long-to-start-it sweet! It didn't follow all the cliches and stereotypes we are used to. It wasnt exclusively Bad Guy Vs. Good Guy! It was normal and real people, people we know, with bad and good actions!
I loved the couple, oh and that Goat was adorable!! I'm chattering now, I know, but I'm just ecstatic and overjoyed! It was so worthy to take this Chance!!
This was a super fun read. I rarely read 'funny' books as a few have disappointed me in the past. This book found my sense of humour and had me cracking up laughing.
I thought when I started this book that it was gonna be a hot sexy book. However I was wrong.. It was so much more than that. This book had a combination of sexy, romantic and downright laugh out loud moments. Yes I may have snorted a few times.
Aubrey is on a road trip. Fate steps in and drops the luscious sexy Chance into her lap (or should I say her car lol). What starts as giving him a lift turns into so much more.
Really brilliant storyline. If I could give more than five stars I would.
Have I mentioned the great names in this book... Esmerelda Snowflake. Let's not forget Philomena. Yes of course I'm gonna mention her lol
