Book Review: Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland #Giveaway

Aubrey is on a cross country trip to California to restart her life. When she gets a flat tire at a rest stop in Nebraska, her only choice is to make a deal with the cocky Aussie Chance. Little did she know how a road trip with a sexy stranger would change her life. Despite the nickname she's given him, she finds him to be charming and sweet and maybe she could see herself falling for him. But he has secrets he's not willing to share that just might make that impossible.

This book was refreshing and not at all what I expected. From the title I figured we would be getting a hero that was an alpha male with some tendencies to be a jerk and I could not have been more wrong. Oh Chance is plenty cocky, but in a cute and irresistible way. His accent and his dimples? GAH! I had several laugh my ass off moments between all of his subtle yet not so subtle innuendos and the goat. Dear God, the goat. Priceless.

Aubrey was a likable heroine though I admit to wanting to smack her a bit in the second half of the book. The first half of the book was told from her point of view and the second half from Chance's and I am not gonna lie, I absolutely LOVED getting inside his head. No surprise there really as I usually prefer the male's view.

Book Review: Forsaken (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #3) by Lisa Renee Jones #Giveaway

Before you dive into this book, I highly recommend reading the previous two in the series first. Technically they might not be required, but I think you will have a better understanding of things if you do. As it was, it had been so long since I myself had read them that it took me a chapter or two for my brain to kick in and remember where we left off. Quickly I was reminded of how perfectly Lisa combines edge of you seat suspense with panty melting sexiness and I was sucked right back into the story.

Chad doesn't trust anyone, and given his past, you really can't blame him. Now he is in a race to get to his sister before the evil he is responsible for gets to her first. Enter Gia. She helps him escape but why? What are her true motives? Chad doesn't want to trust her; he can't afford to. But he is given little choice if he wants to save his sister and get the revenge his soul craves.

I have to say that Ms. Jones did a fabulous job of keeping me guessing at who was on Chad's side and who could be betraying him. Had he been trusting the wrong people all these years or was the newcomer to blame? I had my suspicions but they kind of wavered back and forth for most of the book. It was clear Gia wasn't telling him the whole truth and I was dying to find out what all of her story was.

Book Review: Fourth Debt (Indebted #5) by Pepper Winters

This series. Dear God this series. I've been hooked since the first book and each one after has been more twisted and more captivating than the previous. How much pain does one couple have to go through to get their happily ever after?

We pick up where last book left off, and I am going to be purposefully vague here in case anyone who has never read any of these yet is reading this review. Third Debt ended with the biggest cliff hanger yet and we are left wondering did that craziness really happen? Yes. Yes it did. What happens now? Nila has lost her only two allies in the hell that is her life, is there anyone left that she can trust? Pepper did a fantastic job of keeping us on our toes with this installment, wondering who, if anyone, was on Nila's side. Nila is physcially and mentally tortured at the hands of the three sickos left in charge and you can truly feel her starting to deteriorate and give up. Just when you think there is a sliver of hope that Nila might get out, the end comes with yet another twist and hope is once again snuffed out.
