This will be, without question, one of my favorite reads for 2015! -5 stars from Lisa, Three Chicks and Their Books
To say that I loved this book would be an understatement. I binge read this unputdownable standalone. If there was a formula for a perfect book...this would be it. This second chance romance is absolute Kindle Crack. Cocky Bastard has the ideal mix of "the feels", romance, angst, drama and likable characters. This funny, sexy and sweet romance captivated me from the first page to the last. Be prepared to pull an all-nighter. -Cheri, Kindle Crack
BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT!
