⭐️⭐️ Not for me

I won’t sugarcoat it; this isn’t up to the standards that I expect from Jenshak’s work. The quality of the writing is still there, but the storyline is kind of all over the place. I can’t say that I ever really felt the chemistry, and some of the bumps on this road to happily ever after were not to my taste. That being said, I did enjoy seeing Adele well and happy, and our hero is the kind of guy that you’ll swoon over.

The story follows Finn, a pro soccer player set to marry his longtime girlfriend. He thinks life is great until he’s left at the altar. Drunk and heartbroken, Finn finds himself staying at the home of the sister of one of his friends. Finn’s the type of guy Adele would’ve gone for in a heartbeat – before she recovered from addiction (definitely some triggers in this one). He’s got trouble written all over him and that’s not what she needs in her life. Thankfully, she’s got a stable boyfriend who keeps her relatively happy. But spending two weeks with Finn in her home makes Adele realize all that she’s been missing in her life.

I really wanted to rate this higher because I’ve enjoyed Jenshak’s work in the past. But I just didn’t like it. Instead of spending two chemistry-filled weeks together fighting the attraction, Finn spends his nights drunk and possibly looking for hookups, while Adele is intimate with her boyfriend and set in her belief that she’s happy. Add in Finn’s pursuit of Adele while she’s still in a relationship – despite just having been cheated on – and the whole thing didn’t scream “romance” to me. I hate to be so negative about an author whose work I’ve seriously enjoyed in the past, but I can’t say that this one was a winner for me on any level. Those looking for a satisfying HEA for Chance’s sister will probably enjoy some elements of this, but I can’t give it a whole-hearted recommendation. I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review.


Blurb:

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.

Ten new Cocky Hero Club books are out now!

Cocky Suit by Harlow Layne
 
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.

Dirty Dealer by Kacey Shea
 
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. Kismet.
 
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.

Cocky Protector by Kat Mizera
 
Life as a CIA operative might be exciting, but living under the radar gets lonely.
Meeting someone, much less having a relationship, is the most impossible mission of all.

There was someone… once. But she was looking for a white picket fence and I was headed for war.
Now, my years of service to my country are catching up with me and I’m ready for a change.
I just never expected that change to be Shannon, or that she would be in trouble.
The man in me can’t forget that damn kiss. The Marine in me is ready to protect her at all costs.
She might not want my help, but I’m not walking away this time.
Even if it won’t have the ending either of us were looking for…

Hired Hottie by Kelsie Rae
 
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.

Cocky Notes by Leesa Bow
 
Who thought writing ‘LOSERS’ on a menu could lead to an affair of love notes?
 
It didn’t start out as love. How could it when I vowed never to fall in love…
 
Reef Burton, the sexy blue-eyed football player, and his mates are definitely not ‘Losers’ yet writing it on a menu gave me reason to smile. Only it didn’t make it to the trash.
 
He returns to the restaurant where I work wearing his killer smile. I wasn’t to know those squiggly lines and arrows meant something. An offensive play his football team learned at an earlier training session. Coming here discussing the team plays over coffee helps… so he says.
He’ll see what I wrote. Apart from it being awkward the next time I serve him he could also report me to my boss.
 
I can’t lose my job when in hindsight I need two to pay all the bills rolling in, and to care for my invalid father.
 
I’m thankful he kept it as our secret.
 
Until he left me a note.
 
Responding will only lead to more trouble.
 
So when Mr Blue Eyes-Blond Surfy-Hair gives me one of his spine tingling looks, how can I resist?

Scandalous Scotsman by MJ Fields
 
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.
Between 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.
Three 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.
Arriving 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.
Upon 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?

Smug Bastard by Stacey Marie Brown
 
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.

Bloodthirsty Bastard by T.L. Christianson


 All I wanted was to escape the scandal.

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.
 
Vampire.
 
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.
