Synopsis

 

Honor. 

Courage.

Commitment.

Three things Jesse Carter has lost. A former Marine, Jesse used to stand proud of his achievements and live by the code. But when circumstance made him question everything he believed in, those most basic values didn’t feel so important after all.

Sex. 

Lies. 

Knights Rebels.

Three things Jesse Carter has found. Reborn into a brotherhood not so different from the one he left behind, Jesse finds it all too easy to block out his past and claim the role as the Rebels’ fun loving player.

Until he meets Bell.

Shy, awkward, and with troubles of her own, Bell Johnson’s no stranger to hiding her pain. When Jesse forces himself into her life, she’s at risk of her defences crumbling.

Does Bell have the strength to survive Jesse and his demons or is she fated to become another casualty in the self-destruction of Jesse Carter?

 

 

KFF’s five star review by Claire Rose 

All I can say is O.M.G! Wow…what an emotionally intense read. For most of us, we can relate to someone who is suffering with the events that happens in this beautifully written story. I would advise that to get an understanding of Jesse, read the other books in the series first.

River has done it again! While we all love this series and have been waiting patiently for the fun loving Jesse and Belle’s story, I know you won’t be disappointed because I certainly wasn’t. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to read and review this story.

Belle is a twenty-three old nurse who still lives at home with her parents, and who are keeping her on a tight lead following the disappearance of her younger sister, Paige. After five years of no news, there is no closure for Belle and her family. She’s on a night out celebrating her birthday, and her friends try to convince her it’s time to move forward and live life. But she doesn’t quite see it that way. Her night isn’t going as planned, but her friends come up with an idea that swirls a little hope inside of her.

Jesse. Fun-loving, always there to help others, uses women for one night and also living a life where he can’t move on. He has a past that no-one wants to go through. His family life wasn’t all roses with an over controlling and abusive father. He joined the military and fought for his country until one attack on his unit leaves him with guilt and nightmares. Put these two together and what do we have? BOOM! After meeting nurse Belle, he knows she is more than a one night stand, but decides he is not the man for her. However, after Belle turns up at the club asking for help to try and find her sister; he agrees on one condition—he wants her to go out on a date with him. And so a friendship is formed and Jesse’s head gets even more messed up. He wants Belle and he knows she wants him, but news of his father dying is pushing all Jesse’s limits.

Things have heated up and the pair of them are explosive together. Jesse’s still pushing his past away and Belle’s lying to her parents. When things start to spiral out of control for him, he loses the best thing that’s happened to him but he doesn’t realise it.

Quote ~ Jesse: “I thought I told you to go home. No one likes a fucking hang on. I fucked you, okay. I don’t need some second-rate bitch trying to get back in. I’m done. Done.”

At this point in the novel my heart goes out to Belle who is trying to love Jesse, find her sister and still living by her parents rules. Even the club doesn’t know what to do with him as he loses himself in booze and the big hole he has created.

Can they both overcome their pasts; can they both move forward, and do they both get what they deserve? Will their love be enough to overcome everything? Read it and find out. This story was perfection for me… River’s best yet. Telling how someone with P.T.S.D and someone who is dealing with a missing relative struggle with life just enthralled me. So for this reason I award this book five amazing stars. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait for Beau’s story.

 

Excerpt 

I wake up to the heat of someone’s palm against my shoulder. Twisting around, my hand moves faster than my brain, and I snatch it off me.

“Jesse, it’s me, Bell,” she rushes out before I can take it any further.

“Fuck.” I release my grip on her arm and sit up, forcing myself back to the here and now.

“Did I hurt you?” I reach for her searching for any sign of a mark left by me.

“It’s fine. You barely touched me.” She holds her arm out letting me inspect it. I check it over one more time before releasing her and relaxing.

“You wanna talk about it?” I study her face, eyes calm, soft mouth. She’s not freaking out.

“Just some shit that visits my dreams sometimes, nothing that needs to touch you,” I reply, shocked I’m not retreating.

“I don’t mind, Jesse,” she pushes, and I almost cave. Almost.

“The last thing I want to do is talk about this shit, Bell.” She doesn’t argue or press, and I’m grateful for it. I don’t think I’d be able to keep my cool if she did.

“Come back to sleep.” She lies back down and I follow her. She doesn’t ask me any more questions, or make me feel like I need to tell her everything.

“That ever happens again, don’t wake me,” I warn. A menacing thought strikes through me picturing what could have happened if I didn’t wake in time. She’s lucky I didn’t hurt her, like the last time a woman touched me while I had a nightmare.

“You don’t always have to be so brave, Jesse.” Her hand moves to my dog tags. I don’t stop her. I’m starting to like the feeling of her hands touching them.

“Never tried to be, Bell. But talking doesn’t help me. Never has.” I think back to the time when I did try and it forced me out of control. Talking about those triggers only amplified my insecurities. When death sits afar, mocking you in the dangerous confines of your surroundings, it fucks with your head; nothing was going to change it.

Besides, my issues weren’t what I had done. They were what I had survived. My conscience wasn’t clear and my honor wasn’t clean.

“Promise me you won’t touch me.” I keep my tone even, controlled.

“I promise.” I take her hand in mine and bring it to my lips. Maybe one day I will let someone in. Let her in.

Today isn’t that day.

But today, I didn’t push her away.

That has to count for something.

REVIEW ~ COCKY BASTARD by PENELOPE WARD & VI KEELAND

COCKY BASTARD, a delightful swoon-worthy romance that’ll make you laugh till you cry
by New York Times bestselling authors
Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


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 book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Reviewed by Rachel & Sharon Thérèse at KFF

Pick it up, turn the first page and wham bam, thank you ma’am! Authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have written a book which came alive in our hands. This brilliantly construed, humorous, but heart-rending story had us spellbound with every word, every sentence, every page, every chapter and every thought the two protagonists had. To say we were hooked lock stock and barrel, would be putting it mildly. This is the first time these two authors have got together and wow, what a twosome they make! Reading this full-length novel in a day was no skin off our noses; so beware boyfriends and spouses! It is highly likely that you’ll be ignored at some time, have to put up with a fits of crying or even worse, listen to a running commentary while your better half is cracking up over one of the most original characters, storyline and one-liners one could ever wish for in this love story with a difference.

Aubrey ~ ‘’I’m not watching a movie with you in your underwear.’’
Chance ~ ‘’ What ? It’s not like I have an erection.’’

We couldn’t not like Aubrey. She’s not a lawyer by choice; however, this sassy animal-lover has had enough. Working in a law firm where she’d had a relationship with one of the partners, backfired. She decides to move on, loads up her BMW to the hilt with her belongings and starts off on a long journey. Stopping off on route for her destination, she crosses with whom she thinks is the most obnoxious, heart-throb, squeeze-your-thighs-together guy. It just happens that Chance Bateman is in a spot. His Harley has broken down and as they’re going in the same direction, they come to an agreement of sorts; Aubrey, of course, setting down the rules. In the interim period of quick, quirky off the mark banter which flows between them like the waters through the Straits of Gibraltar, we meet Esmerelda Snowflake. Get ready for the ‘kid’ that might just steal the show!

Chance ~ “You know if you set up rules, I won’t be able to help myself. I’ll need to break them.”

Now on route, she’s getting used to his cocky innuendos but is a little confused as to why he doesn’t make a move on her. All said and done, the sexual chemistry they have is nothing less than scorching hot. So why doesn’t he make a play for her? Not telling, but what we will say is that nearly halfway into the book, all is revealed and literally knocked us sideways.

Aubrey ~ “You know what, get over yourself. Someone finally called you on the little game you play. Being rejected sucks,” I scoffed. “Although I’m sure you don’t know the feeling at all.”

After a crazy whirlwind detour to Sin City, we have Aubrey’s point of view when something she never expected happens. The probability of giving your Kindle a good bashing or shouting out a few choice words while reading how she feels about the way she’s been treated is high. Okay, he’s not just drop-dead gorgeous, but this Aussie ex-football player whose luck ran out is also going to have to pull out the big guns if wants to get back into Aubrey’s good books. And regardless of his cocky charm and his strong feelings for this woman, things are much more complicated than we could ever have had imagined… Rewind two years and we were in for a shock. Now everything makes sense but against his better judgement, he’d kept it all locked up in their whirlwind romance.

Chance ~ “My dreams don’t have rainbows and doves. They have me pulling your hair as I fuck you on that desk. You want to be my real live dream Princess?”

Fast-forward two years and as hard as Chance tries, he still can’t get this outstandingly beautiful, sexy but unpretentious woman out of his head. With a bit of encouragement from a mate he had made in a place one would never picture him in, he conjures up a plan of attack. Reading his point of view was heartbreaking, enchanting and even though it takes up a good half of the book, we never wanted it to end. The escapades he gets up to weren’t exactly ethical but we were playing on his team all the way. Aubrey, in complete ignorance of what had happened to him over the past two years, has made a new life. Time’s running out for Chance so get ready for his inventively skilful ways and means of catching her attention. Landscaping gardens will take on a new dimension and he can come and do our gardens whenever he pleases!

Aubrey ~ ‘’I need time to process. I’ve spent the last two years hating you.’’
Chance ~ ‘’ I understand.’’

There’s a very good chance (pun intended) you’ll be bowled over by this perfect summer read and fall head over heels for these two adorable lovers and their mascot. Everything about this book we loved. Like demons possessed by the authors’ handy work, we highlighted, took down notes and underlined quotes which never spoilt or hindered this read for us. The descriptive writing is sublime, the protagonists and secondary characters, well-developed and Chance’s Aussie drawl is beyond perfect. Well, AH-BREE thought so. What we look for in a good read is uniqueness and there is no doubt whatsoever that Cocky Bastard offers this. The authors cannily integrated the steamy scenes in such a way that we applaud them. Not overdone; just right, just put your air-con on though! One word to sum up has to be BRAVO!
