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.



My life isn’t perfect, but it’s mine. Writing for an upscale magazine in New York City is a dream come true. Everything is perfect, until it isn’t.
Now, I’m unemployed, single, pushing forty, and living back at home with my parents. Mid-life crisis anyone?
Then he walks through my parents’ front door and it all fades away. Sebastian “Bash” Jagger is grown up and all man. This new version in front of me is as cocksure as they come. Some would even call him a Rock God. And he’s about to turn my world upside down with an offer I can’t refuse.
There’s just one problem. He’s my younger brother’s best friend. My much younger brother.


Fame and fortune; I’ve got it in spades. From the millions of fans screaming my name every night to the awards that line the walls of my mansion, I have it all. It’s a far cry from the dirty orphan who used to sleep on the floor of his best friend’s room.
Still, having everything isn’t enough. Something is still missing.
The second I walk through her parents’ front door and my eyes land on her, I know exactly what that is or rather who that is.
London Ramone has been the star of every wet dream I’ve ever had. The forbidden fruit I couldn’t touch, but was dying to taste. She was beautiful then, but she’s stunning now.
Opportunity is knocking—she needs a job and I have an offer she can’t refuse. If we both end up tangled in my sheets along the way that’s a bonus I can live with because I always get what I want and that won’t stop now.
She thinks I’m too young for her, but I’m going to enjoy proving to her how wrong she is. After all, age is just a number and I have hers.

Rockstar Rebel is a friends to lovers/rock star romance inspired by Park Avenue Player.

My Thoughts:

London is having to start over.  Sebastian has received some really good news.  Our author does a good job showing that some age-gaps don’t have an affect on a relationship.  In this case, since they already have a history nothing comes across as shiver worthy.  You could see their connection right from the start. 


It was great to see how we get to go on tour with the group that Sebastian belongs to.  When I go to read this again, I think I’ll have my earbuds in as I listen to some music.  You can see how this story fits into the Cocky Hero Club.  Now, if the author had left it with just the band and our main characters I would have been happy with that but she took it one step further. 


She also gives us some mystery and suspense.  None of that felt out of place or as if she felt like she had to add it.  It all fit perfectly into the storyline.  Then she creates some heat that if I had a paperback it would probably self-combust. But the ending was frustrating.  It left me hanging and I’m hoping that means there’s another book in store for this rock group – fingers crossed.  I went the the author’s GoodReads page but didn’t have any luck with that investigation.  Maybe it will be another book in the Cocky Heroes World – one can always hope.  But I look forward to finding out. 



Christine Besze is a writer, reader, mother, wife, and lover of all things wine. She lives in her own world of crazy most days, because the voices inside her head hold some great conversation. When she does have to come back to reality and act like an actual grown-up, she spends her time with her handsome hubby Z, their two gorgeous gingers and their mini-herd of German Shepherds. Born in sunny Southern California, she recently made the big leap with her family to the East Coast and couldn’t be happier. You'll still find her in flip-flops—with a full glass of wine—all year round.
