Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best sellers Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland comes a sexy new standalone novel.
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 audiobook is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Male narrator killed the book for me

This story was so sweet and had twists that I didn't expect. However the male narrator was horrible for this character. His acting was extremely over the top. I don't think his narration style is good for romance. The female narrator was fine.

Simply stated, save your money.

I decided to listen to this audio while I was driving home from visiting my daughter. It was a 3.5-hour drive, so I was looking forward to listening to an audiobook. Simply stated, save your money. There were so many issues with the audio, I cannot list them all here. But I will give a few.

1.) The narrators had a difficult time with the dialogue. I think this might be a case of when an audio is not a good option for a book. Too much dialogue forced these narrators to have too many voice and inflection changes that it became seriously annoying!

⦁The female narrator had a lilt at the end of her sentences which made her sound like she was whining. Throw in other character voices and an Australian accent, and I wanted to throw my iPhone out the window.
⦁The male narrator had a naturally deep voice, so when he raised his voice and slowed down his tempo to "sound like a woman" he sounded more like a preteen boy, or demented man, I haven't yet decided which.

2.) When I got home, I was exhausted and thought I would read the book along with the audio --- so basically I just followed along. This was a BIG mistake. What I found were numerous inconsistencies from the audio to the book.

⦁Audio says Chance's sister is 22 years old. The book reads she's 28.
⦁Audio says his sister "looked like a woman now". The book reads "she looked like a mum."

I wish I could say this was all there was, but that's not the case. Eventually, I turned off the audio and just read the book. I found I enjoyed it much more that way.

A really enjoyable story

(Spoiler alert) Firstly I must say I loved this audio book the story and idea was great !! However performances make or break a audiobook that was definitely true in this case. I loved Michelle Ferguson's voice and performance she matched my idea of Aubry perfectly and her change if voice for Chance was perfect too., I liked Aaron Abano's performance but his voice didn't match my idea of Chance at all which made listening to the 2nd half of the book really difficult. I soldiered on because I loved the story and wanted to know what happened the HEA was worth the wait😀💞

Raunchy to com

Enjoyed listening to female narrator but male was a let down and his attempt to do a female voice sounded just wrong. Good giggle though.

That awful accent

That accent was awful! Chance sounded like a 50 year old man from London.
Spoiler alert - that was not an Aussie accent.
The story was ok, but the reading made me cringe, and I just couldn’t get into it. I should have just read the ebook.

Like the story but the narration was really BAD

Story was good but the Narration WAS BLOODY BAD, the Australian accent was so bad it annoyed me, and I found it so hard to listen to the whole book because of it, I finished the book but would never listen again because of the Narration even thou it was a good story
