From New York Times best sellers 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 the cocky bastard, 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.
Author's note: Cocky Bastard is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this audiobook is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Since I listened to this in audiobook format my review is based on that, I loved the story and the characters, but I wasn’t a fan of Aaron Abano narration. He just kind of threw everything at me. I pictured a sexy voice like Chris Hemsworth, and that’s not what we got. I can work around it when a female is narrating the character, but when a man does it, and I don’t like his voice, it just doesn’t work for me. There wasn’t anything wrong with Abano’s narration other than I just didn’t care for his voice. I know I am weird, but I like what I like.
The story was excellent, with terrific characters and a twist that I didn’t see coming from a mile away. And oh man does this book depict the song “When a Man Loves a Woman.” It was swoon-worthy. The story brought tears to my eyes a few times, and I fell madly in love with both characters.
If I read it would get a higher rating but the audiobook receives a 4.5 Boundless Stars.
