Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero
Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New
York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
Mrs. Ambrosia Bloomington, now a widow, is ready to start a new life
amongst Mayfair elites without the overarching reach of her late husband, Mr.
Harrison Bloomington.  With her trunks
loaded safely onto her own private carriage, she’s ready to face the world as
an independent woman in Regency London.
She does not, however, bargain for cocksure Frenchman, Mr. Charles
Cochran Bateman coming along and turning her very ordinary journey into the
adventure of a lifetime.
She does not bargain for his laughter, his enthusiasm, nor his Joie de
And blast and fiddlesticks, she certainly is not expecting to experience
the sparks that charge the air between them.
And, it seems, apparently, neither is he…

They say opposites attract, but in this case, they might
just combust . . .
Hermosa Beach seems to be the place for throwing together unlikely
My rooster Rowdy and his new crush, Pixy the goat.
Me and the obnoxiously cocky cowboy from Texas . . .
But unlike Rowdy and Pixy, there’s no way I’m going to fall
for David Strickland.
Nope. Not gonna happen. I could never be with a man so
completely opposed to everything I believe . . . no matter how hot he is.
There couldn’t be two people more different than the
beautiful little tree hugger and rooster rescuer Heather and me.
We can’t agree on anything, except that we disagree on
everything—some times more heatedly than other times. And believe me, things
are starting to heat up between us, in more ways than one.
She’s the last thing I expected to find at an animal shelter
in California. But now I found her, I have no intention of letting her go.
I just have to get her on board with that plan.

She was the fruit of a forbidden tree, but nothing in this
world was going to stop me from tasting her.
My name is Dylan Murphy, and I work for the rich and
powerful of an exclusive Manhattan building. Graham Morgan was my first boss,
but soon after I was working with some of the most famous entrepreneurs,
business moguls, and movie stars in the city. They trusted me because I always
followed the cardinal rules:
Never betray secrets. And never, under any circumstance, get
personally involved.
I’d never dreamed of violating my professional mantra.
Not until she walked past me.
The look we exchanged that night set my body on fire, and I
knew right then and there that no matter the consequences, she was going to be
mine. But she was one of them—off limits and out of my league, but she was the
kind of woman who I was willing to risk everything for.
I keep other people’s secrets for a living, but the biggest
secret of all might be my own.

Ex-fighter pilot, Logan Reid, is exactly the kind of man I
despise. He’s a cocky jet jock, a former Navy Blue Angel, and full of all the
arrogance that comes with being the best of the best.
I’m an ex-Zoomie, an Air Force tanker pilot. The rivalry
between our sister services is nothing compared to that between fighter jocks
and tanker pilots. We’re bitter rivals and I’m low-man (woman) on the totem
The last thing I need is to spend six hours at thirty-five
thousand feet locked in a cockpit with the cocky captain. But I have no choice.
I’m his co-pilot, and we’re taking the CEO of Montague Enterprises, and his
family, on a mini-vacation to the Grand Caymans.
We have three days on the ground before we fly back.
Three long days in paradise and he wants to spend them all
with me.
I have a thing for fighter pilots.
It isn’t animosity, exactly, but rather a deep-seated
dislike. They get all the glory while the rest of us sit at the butt end of
their jokes and wither beneath their ridicule.
I hate fighter pilots. There, I said it. I hate the arrogant
pricks with a passion.
But after one look into those magnetic eyes, and the
devastating wink which follows, I’m thinking of throwing caution to the wind.
What harm can come from some innocent flirting? Besides, it’s not as if my job
is at risk.
I’m not prepared for the air to sizzle when he’s close.
I’m not ready for our explosive chemistry when he touches my
I’m not equipped for the fallout when our three days come to
an end.
And I never expected to fall in love.
But all good things come to an end.
I wasn’t prepared when I walked away.
And I wasn’t ready for what came next.
He’s arrogant.
He’s cocky.
He’s determined to get what he wants.
And he’s refuses  to
let this end.
He’s fighting for a forever…with me.
But, I’m not ready for our beginning.
He’s arrogant enough to prove me wrong.

When I met Ryan, I might’ve been trying to break into his
It was for a good cause. I swear. Also, my dog broke in
Ryan Blake is jaw-dropping handsome, wealthy & cocky.
Not quite my type. By some miracle, he doesn’t call the police on me when he
catches me trying to rescue my dog. He even fetches a doctor for me. Don’t ask
I don’t figure I’ll see him again. Then, I do. Then, he
kisses me. Once. Twice. Is three times the charm? To be honest, I swooned at
the first kiss.
All swooning aside, we are seriously opposites. I wear
cowboy boots and skirts. He wears suits and ties. He’s all New York City. I’m a
Southern girl looking for a new start. We even talk at different speeds.
The list of things I don’t expect from Ryan is long. I don’t
expect him to think twice about me. I don’t expect him to nearly bring me to my
knees with a look. I don’t expect him to be so much more than I ever imagined.
I absolutely don’t expect to fall for him. So hard I’m
skidding sideways just to catch my balance.

Getting fired and humiliated in front of everyone at my
newly acquired secretarial job at Morgan Financial Holdings wasn’t how I’d seen
my day going.
And then chaos—or maybe luck—ensured.
I was set up on a blind date, shocked that my former boss
was giving me a month’s severance, and had the perfect interview lined up.
Maybe things were looking up for me after all.
And although finding a man should have been on the bottom of
my to-to list, I couldn’t get Jason—the uber sexy blind date—out of my head.
Sexy and confident—or maybe arrogant—he had me yearning for more with just a
smoldering look and a smirk of his lips.
But when a night of drinking leads to getting in bed with
him and having the wildest, most intense night of my life, I didn’t know if I
should ask to see him again, or do the good old walk of shame.
And it’s when I walk into my interview the next day and come
face-to-face with my prospective employer that the reality of my situation
sinks in.
Because there, sitting across from me with that devilish
smile on his face, that knowing expression of what we’d done the night before,
is the one and only Jason, my supposedly one-night stand.
Looked like my humiliation wasn’t over just yet.

When my best friend Aubrey asked me to tag along to an event
with her, I never could have imagined that it would be the day that my life
changed forever.
He’s arrogant and demanding and doesn’t take a hint. Landon
Barker, the quarterback for the Hermosa Beach Trojans, is a player on and off
of the field. He’s got his sights set on me as his next play, but I see right
through him. Aubrey says I’m overreacting, that I should give him a chance.
What she doesn’t realize is men like Landon don’t fall for the girl next door.
That’s not reality. She got her fairytale, although it was a long road. Not all
of us are that lucky.
She’s a friend of our new kicking coach’s wife. When I ask
Chance for her number, he tells me I have to find a way to get it myself.
Nothing when it comes to Emma has been easy. She’s the first
woman ever to turn me down, and that won’t do. However, as time passes, it’s
about more than that. It’s about her smile, her laugh, and just spending time
with her. She thinks I’m a player, and she’s right. What she doesn’t know is
that I play to win, and her heart is the ultimate trophy.

This book is sweet factor 5000. Do you love a hero who is utterly devoted to his woman from the second they meet? Do you love a man who goes out of his way daily to show his woman just how special she is? Do you love a man who is the king of all things woo? Because if you do this book is for you.
Landon really is the star of the show here. I haven’t read a man this romantic in quite some time. His sweet pursuit of Emma will have your heart melting the entire time you’re reading their story. Kaylee Ryan took romance to the next level here!


FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Ari!

Kaylee Ryan has written such a fantastic romance with Lucky Bastard. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and sexy and just enough humor to make it fun read i couldn’t put down. Swoony football players are my fictional kryptonite and Landon fit that bill! The man is all kinds of yummy and loved that he goes after what he wants, namely Emma, with all he’s got. I swooned so hard for him and the way their romance develops and grows. I swear Kaylee Ryan had me all up in my feels with this story and I ate it all up! This was such a great romance that grew from dislike to friendship to more and I loved every moment of it. 5 stars.

FOUR 🎩🎩🎩🎩 Hats from Heather

This book was not what I expected it to be. It was a light fluffy read that has a cast of characters that have you flipping the through the pages. We get a wide range of personalities that somehow mesh so well together. I am not gonna lie it took me a little bit to warm up to Sheridan. Once you start reading you will see just what I am talking about. She just reminded me of a whiny little brat that threw a fit every time she didn’t get her way. I will say she really is a sweet soul that just needed the right people in her life. Now Camilo he is all man all the time. He makes it his mission to show Sheridan just what she is missing. I enjoyed following their story.

Okay, K Webster, I see you. Damn, girl! Cocksure Ace was the perfect read for me right now. Fun, flirty, wholly entertaining, and packing some great feels. I must say that while the MCs, Sheridan and Camilo were amazing (more on my love for Camilo later), this book’s supporting characters were just perfection! I absolutely loved everyone and that’s pretty dang amazing. Okay, let’s talk about Camilo. The man had me at hello! I loved his character so much despite the chip he had on his shoulder, but honestly that made his character even better so why am I even gonna pretend I didn’t love it? I’m a sucker for a moody hero, but aside from that he was also all kinds of perfection especially for Sheridan. He balanced her out and I swooned my butt off for him. 4 stars.

I fell in love when I was sixteen. Landon was my entire
world and I thought he would be my forever. But I was young and dumb, and with
one error in judgement, I destroyed any chance of a future we could’ve had
together, along with our hearts.
Twelve years later and I’m going through the motions of
life, but not actually living. Which is why I let my friends, Bridget and
Simon, set me up on a blind date. Turns out, it’s not so blind after all.
Because the man sitting in front of me is the same man who’s held onto my heart
all these years.
They call me a Clutch Player because I’m good under pressure
and quick on my feet. I was also quick to fall in love. The first time it was
with baseball, the second was with Harper. And for a short time I had them
Until I lost Harper and all I had left was baseball.
For years, I focused on my career. I had accepted that
baseball was my one true love.
Until I saw her again. I never imagined we’d ever get a
second chance, but now that she’s sitting right across from me, I know there’s
no way in hell I’m going to let her go again.

Only Nikki Ash can make me sob, swoon and scream at my kindle repeatedly. I swear I get so freaking attached to every character she writes. And I don’t mean attached in like an “awwwww, I love them!” way, I mean attached in a I’m totally obsessed and will cut a b!#ch if they try to so much as breathe on me when I’m reading one of her books kind of way. (I’m a totally, mostly sane person…really)
Annnnnnyhoo, less rambling about my obsessive love and more rambling about why Clutch Player is faneffingtastic. Immediately you’re pulled in to Landon and Harper’s world. I was instantly loving Harper the second I started reading. Even young Harper was someone I would have been friends with back before I was an old biddy cackling over book boyfriends in my leggings and hoodies. She was sweet, she was smart and she was just all around adorable. Young Landon however I would have had to throw my love for Harper out the window for. No young man should be the swoony. It’s just not fair to my old heart.
If that’s not enough reason to get you grabbing this book right now, let me tell you, these two grow up and add a HUGE, GIGANTIC mountain of heat onto all that sweet. Their story hits you repeatedly with emotional punches then soothes your soul with beautiful romance in a way that will blow your mind.


FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 Hats from Ari!

Holy shizzle, Nikki Ash! Pretty sure you’re a romance murder because you’ve killed me with this amazing romance and I’m not about to be the only one! I’m so beyond in love with this story, these characters, the writing, and perfect amounts of feels. Clutch Player is truly Nikki Ash at her best. Landon and Harper are amazing. Ahhh-mayyy-zing. Yes, said exactly like that. That’s how amazing they are. I swear to Jesus, Nikki Ash has a gift for writing heroines that are relatable, likable, and easy to root for. Harper felt like one of my girls. And if I loved Harper, I plain ol’ was eating out of Landon’s fiction hand! The man was swoon-central! I absolutely loved the delicious baseball player through and through. As if that wasn’t enough the chemistry, connection, and HEAT between Harper and Landon is stellar. STELLAR. Gah, I could go on and on, but seriously just get this book now! Don’t TBR it, just GET IT! Five stars, must read, top 10 of 2020. It’s like that!
