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.


Traveling to the island of Roatan, Honduras, for her college best friend’s wedding, it never crossed Sophia’s mind that her college boyfriend, Trevor, could be in attendance. She hadn’t heard anything from or about him since graduation when he left to bounce around to different locations and pursue his immature dreams. She assumed no one else had either. Wrong. He has quite a reputation in West End, Roatan.

Trevor was told of and agreed to the unlikelihood of Sophia traveling to the simple island destination. He didn’t give it a second thought. Until he saw her sitting on a barstool at the tiki bar. Now he can’t stop thinking about her. Fantasizing about her. She still has flowing, auburn hair and a fiery attitude to match.

Both recognize the fire still burning between them. But neither is inclined to relight the match.

They wanted different things. They took separate paths and found success. Did either find the happiness they had together? Will either act on the passion between them? If they do, it will force them into the exact dilemma they suffered a decade ago.

Can and will Trevor let her return to the lucrative lifestyle she always wanted and obtained? A decade without her couldn't silence his doubts about losing her the first time.

Will Sophia leave her ‘West End Wonder’ living the satisfying life he chose for himself? She’s dated the high-powered business moguls she dreamed of. But she’s never appreciated and enjoyed them as much as she does Trevor and experiencing his laid-back island lifestyle.

*West End Wonder is a contemporary second chance romance inspired by Park Avenue Player.

My Thoughts:

Sophia is frustrated but the scenery made things seem a little better.  Trevor shows the reader right from the start how he fits into this series.  These two make me a little melancholy because taking a vacation is a thing of the past for a little while.  On the plus side, this author lets me travel along with her characters.   


This author had my mind going in so many directions.  There were times that I felt sorry for Sophia.  Then there were times where I felt sorry for Trevor.  And then there were times that I thought that Trevor was too good for Sophia.  That was the most surprising especially because of my thoughts when I first met him.  As we get to know Sophia, she gave me vibes of a snob with issues. 


Our author surprised me.  I was more interested in getting to know the male character and felt that the female character was dragging her story down.  When I first started the book, I thought the opposite was going to be true.  There were times when I felt that she was self-absorbed and always found a way to feel sorry for herself.  It was hard to find any redeeming qualities that would have me wanting to be her friend.  She also made me glad that this was a short read because I’d had enough of her company.  Even when I finished the story, I thought Trevor could do better. My other surprise was that it was Trevor that kept me interested in the book and why I gave it the star rating I did. 



Sheri Lynn also writes as Sheridan Knight. She writes romance across several genres-contemporary, vampire, futuristic/post-apocalyptic, historical adventure and a few novellas included in anthologies she categorizes as historical suspense. She’s a hopeless romantic and can find a happily ever after in most situations and settings. First published in 2015, she has followed with twenty-two additional single or anthology titles with many more coming. 

Sheri believes in writing romance ‘real.’ From the initial boundless promise of a new relationship, to the doubts and uncertain realities, and onto achieving the sought after happy-endings, including all the struggles in between, that’s ‘real’ romance to her.
