Release Blitz: Cocky Heroes


Release Date: June 28, 2020
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.
Sexy. Demanding. Cocky. 
All words I would use to describe Kingston Avery. 
The owner of Avery Capital Holdings— and my new boss. 
It was tempting enough working together everyday, but ignoring his wicked
promises under his roof was impossible. 
But the company had a zero fraternization policy, and things were already
complicated enough. 
I needed to focus on doing my job. 
And avoid doing my boss. 
Kingston wasn’t just another suit… 
He was a cocky suit. 
And when the suit came off, 
He was a man who could steal my heart. 
Gorgeous. Attentive. Compassionate.
I just hope it didn’t cost me my career.

Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

You say office romance trope and I say I’m there! Harlow Layne delivers a super fun and steamy, office romance with very cocky hero (hey, it’s required lol) and plenty of fun in COCKY SUIT. This couple oozes chemistry and the storyline is just fun and easy to read. A great addition to the cocky world.

On paper I
have it all. Wealth, security, and a collection of vehicles that spark envy,
even amongst LA’s rich and famous. Money is all I ever wanted, but now that I
have it in spades, I’m restless.
For the
first time in my life, I want things cash can’t procure. I want a real
relationship. Beauty and brains. A salacious little minx who isn’t afraid to
call me out. My equal, in and out of the bedroom.
The problem
is I have no clue where to find a woman like that.
Imagine my
luck when I come upon a curvy, gorgeous maiden in distress, stranded on the
side of I-10 like a mirage fashioned from my deepest desires. It’s fate.
Only she
isn’t impressed. Not by my money, my power, or my ability to make all her
dreams come true. 
Hell, she won’t even accept my ride without an
argument. But I’m not giving up. She doesn’t know who she’s dealing with, and
I’m not afraid to play dirty.

Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Yasssss girl! Kacey Shea once again brings it with her contribution to the Cocky Hero Club!

I love love love fun and flirty banter and DIRTY DEALER’s Jude and Rachel had it in spades! It just makes everything so much more fun and I was so proud of my gurl Rachel being able to give it as good as she got!

If all that doesn’t sell you then let me just tell you there’s also a super cute chihuahua and goat. Yup! Why? Pick this baby up and find out. You won’t be disappointed!

Levi McCoy
took me under his wing when we were kids. He was my protector. My best friend.
My everything.
And I was
his sidekick.
When he
landed an internship at Montague Enterprises, I was thrilled. Hundreds of
people had applied, and Levi and his roommate had made the cut. There was just
one problem. Only one of them would be offered the permanent position.
That’s when
things got messy. 
The two
bargained for the final job offer, using me as their pawn.
And I fell
for it. The scheming. The stolen kisses. The late night texts. My heart was
being torn in two, and neither one of them cared. I was nothing but a pretty
face to one of them, and an easy target for the other.
All good
things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn’t see
coming. Hell, it should’ve never started in the first place.

Who thought

One trip
down the stairs, caused by a lone Lego, while wrapped in a towel, spewing a
plethora of profanities, and my cell phone went flying.
I landed on
my ass, and then the ER.
those two occurrences was a FaceTime call, placed by a bouncing phone, to the
number of a man I didn’t even truly look at, who had now seen more of my body
than anyone had since my Tinder days, over a year ago.
declined calls later, I limped out the door to get myself to the ER before
starting my hectic day.
The ER was
packed, but when I saw Nurse Bridget, one of my students’ mothers, I pleaded my
case, and she hurried me into an examination room.
An hour later,
I left on crutches with a bruised ass, a fractured ankle, and an appointment to
see an orthopedic surgeon at four p.m.
fifteen minutes late for that appointment, I heard the sexy yet very brash
accent of a man who clearly had an obsession with punctuality and had,
apparently, no bedside manner.
Dr. Ethan
Stewart, tall, copper-haired, sinfully sexy … was a total ass.
After a
tongue-lashing about how irresponsible I was to, first, leave the ER with such
an injury, and second, be late, I put him in his place … or so I thought.
Turned off
by his arrogant attitude, turned on by the roguish glint in his green eyes and
the way he spoke, I left his office a hot … and wet mess.
exiting, my phone rang again. It was the same number from before, and I couldn’t
help answering to give the caller a piece of my mind.
Once in my
car, I hung up, tossed my phone on the passenger seat, and then looked out the
window to see
him with his phone to his ear and a grin spread across his
far too handsome face.
It couldn’t
be …
Could it?

Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 review:

Ok so…… Scandalous Scotsman is an in your face light read. Lizzie is a young sassy woman who finds herself in a predicament that introduces her to our rough around the edges doctor. The two of them are tenacious and watching them fight the pull and attraction they have is very entertaining. I loved the inner musings that Lizzie would have, and Ethan’s in your face adult humor had me giggling from time to time. Kai was a true joy and watching her blossom and come out of her shell was amazing.
The writing flowed well and the secondary characters helped the story along. If you are looking for a curl up on your couch, or relaxing day by the pool read then by all means please grab yourself a copy of this book and enjoy.

Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Nicole Dykes brings her A-game to her contribution to the Cocky Hero Club series with VENGEFUL BASTARD! Sean and Melody’s story grabs you from the very start and doesn’t let go!

I loooooved Sean and Melody so freaking much. Melody is so much stronger than she appears. I love a heroine who knows who she is and what she wants and that’s Melody even if she appears softer and wide-eyed to the world. Sean. I love Sean as much as I wanted to throttle him sometimes. Infuriatingly stubborn, but also completely guarded and vulnerable, he was a hero I couldn’t resist.

A road trip, a couple with buckets and buckets of chemistry, lovable supporting characters, feels upon feels, and an old friend from the cocky world made Vengeful Bastard an unputdownable must-read!

He was
someone who belonged on the cover of Sports Illustrated instead of in my small
beach town.
A sexy,
cocky Australian soccer star named Finn was the last person I expected to be
living with for two weeks.
He showed
up at my brother’s house on his wedding night, hot, drunk, and very much 
not married.
Next thing I knew, we were roommates, spending nights watching TV and getting
to know one another.
Those two
weeks turned into more than either of us bargained for.
He was
fresh off a broken heart and I had a boyfriend.
I wasn’t
supposed to fall for the jilted jock, especially when I knew we’d be going our
separate ways.
All good
things must come to an end, right?
Except he’s
not letting me go without a fight.

Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

I love Rebecca Jenshak’s previous books and I was so freaking excited to see her contribution to the Cocky Hero World. I was not disappointed in the slightest! JILTED JOCK was fun, sexy, and filled with characters I loved!

What happens when one moment changes everything? Finn is a jilted groom. Adele is in a weird long distanced relationship. But when these two have a chance meeting sparks fly!

Gah! I loved these two so much. Rebecca Jenshak doesn’t know how to write a bad hero and Finn was just yummy! Add to that an amazing Adele, and great storyline and you have yourself a winner and must read romance.

It was my time, a cross country drive heading home for my brother’s
wedding to figure out my life after college. Me, my dog named Goat, and the
open road. That’s all I wanted.
He wasn’t supposed to be part of it. My older brother’s high school
friend and my sister’s ex. The cocky boy my eleven-year-old-self hated.
The infamous Smith Blackburn.
AKA Smug Bastard.
The guy every girl wanted to be with and every guy wanted to be.
The day after graduation, he left town and disappeared, losing contact
with my family. But nine years later, he resurfaces and becomes a thorn in my
side once again.
After his motorcycle breaks down, my older siblings convince me to let
him ride home with me. Kyle wants his old buddy at his wedding, and Kasey,
still carrying a torch for him, wants nothing more than to see him again,
convinced they are meant to be. It’s the last thing in the world I want, but I
learned long ago going up against the powerhouse twins is futile.
After nine years, we’ve both grown up, but our mutual dislike lingers.
Though I can’t deny he is the sexiest man I have ever seen in my life. His
piercing blue eyes, gorgeous rugged face, and muscular, tall figure belong on
magazine covers. But he’s still a smug bastard, and I’m still the annoying
little “Baby K.”
Spending every minute together in a tiny camper van starts to twist the
lines of hate, igniting feelings and passions I’ve never felt before, shoving
me out of my safety bubble. Tension grows, and nights are filled with strain
and forbidden desire.
But I can feel him holding back. Cagey and cryptic, Smith’s dark past
hints at the surface.
When it finds us, nothing could have prepared me for the truth—the
secrets that flip everything upside down.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.
He was never meant to be mine.

All I
wanted was to escape the scandal.
The job
offer in California was the perfect opportunity to pack up and head West.
A dark,
sexy, and mysterious new boss wasn’t in the plan.
And his
secrets run deeper than just his business dealings.
When Ethan
reveals who and what he truly is, it throws everything I ever thought I knew
about the world out the window.
The word
alone brings up visions of blood-sucking monsters.
Yet, Ethan
is anything but.
Falling for
him, with his dashing good looks and honed charm, was almost inevitable.
But we’re
from two very different worlds, and the danger in his might just bring an end
neither of us saw coming.
