Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
BXTCHES Gotta Warn: If you have yet to be dazzled by what happens cover to cover when Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland combine their artistry, then you are certainly not living. Cocky Bastard was released in August 2015 and I downloaded a sample with the full intent of doing the good ole’ one-click, then I’m not sure what happened, but I just never got around to it, crazy right? I did eventually do the one-click, but I was already in the process of reading several books and just kept putting Cocky off, until I didn’t. . .and boy oh boy, I could kick myself for waiting so long to fall in love with the Bastard. Now, Penelope and Vi, that’s right, first name BXTCHES, just joking, I don’t know them at all, came together for Stuck-Up Suit as well. Suit was released after Bastard, but I happened to read Suit first. And truthfully, it’s okay if you do or have gone down that road. Bastard does make a cameo in Suit, but no worries, you will be fine if you fall for Suit before Bastard. Got it? Good. Let’s move on.
*On a side note. . .look at that fucking cover ⇑ this BXTCH must’ve been comatose to not dive right in to this book after seeing that cover, right?
Cocky Bastard will be told in two parts. . .part one will be through the POV of Aubrey (AH-BREE). . .part two will be through the POV of the Cocky Bastard himself, Chance.
After being cheated on by her dickwad boyfriend, Aubrey has decided to take back her life and get on with it. She is moving from Chicago to California and after stoping in Nebraska and having a bit of a run in with Barack Obama (the bobblehead, not the actual prez), she encounters C.B., which for all intents and purposes is the Cocky Bastard, but the name his parents gave him? Chance Bateman. Chance was born in America, but raised in Australia, so you know what that means. . .oh yeah, that fine fucker has an accent (go ahead and lick your lips, it’s totally acceptable in this situation). His aspiration was to become a soccer player and he almost achieved that goal until he messed up his knee. Fortunately for him, his ass is golden, no literally, his ass is a moneymaker. . .because his image sells like hotcakes which equals a pretty good income for the Bastard.
Having a motorcycle that won’t start poses a problem for someone trying to get from Nebraska to California, but once he sees the uptight girl with the stick up her ass AKA Aubrey, his luck may just change. Her flat tire equals his good luck, a tire change for a road trip. And that is how AH-BREE and the Bastard embark on a road trip that will undoubtedly change both of their lives. . .but will it be for the good?
There will be Michael Bolton, pixie sticks, Cock Sauce, Vegas, a fake wedding, a silicone cock, a blind who faints at the first sign of terror and lots of unanswered questions. . .and that’s just part one.
Cocky Bastard is the type of book that one cannot say too much about, because then one would give too much away. And I just will not do that to you BXTCHES. First, I would hate to ruin the chance for you to get to know the Bastard firsthand and that would be a shame. Second, this is one hell of a journey that will truly captivate you from start to finish. But,what I can tell you is that part two begins two years after part one ends. And during that two years that was no happily ever after for Aubrey and Chance, in fact, there was no Aubrey and Chance at all during that time period. But that is all this BXTCH will reveal to you.
As far as a supporting cast, there isn’t really much of one. Chance does have a sister who plays a pretty important part in the story, she just doesn’t make a huge appearance in the story (if that makes sense). Really the story revolves around Aubrey and Chance with some drop in characters around pivotal points in the book that really add more depth to an already very well told story.
There’s actually not a ton of actual fucking in Cocky, sexual tension. . .for sure and boy is it thick. Look at the cover above, surely you can take that piece of man candy and imagine the inspiration I’m sure he brought out of one’s imagination. So, yeah, the little bit of the actual meeting of the genitals, is out of this world and makes a BXTCH wanna bag an Aussie, for real.
I loved this book. I may not have put it in the right words, but oh goodness me, I would not be mad at all if Penelope and Vi decided to give
me us some more from AH-BREE and Bastard. In case you didn’t get it, that was a BXTCH dropping a hint.
