Blurb :

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.

Review :

Why is it that we tend to NOT take a Blurb of a book serious?

Interesting question….
Because yes – I also did not take the warning seriously when I read “Cocky Bastard” by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland. But there is a reason for that in my case and that is .. I DID NOT KNOW THE WARNING.
When I say “I ended up reading that book because…” it sounds bad I guess – but the truth is – When I requested an ARC of another book by those authors I received this book also and I had no idea about the plot.
So I decided – as I liked RoomHate by Penelope Ward – to just dive in and read it without reading the Blurb before. Actually that was a great choice – but still the sentence would be “I ended up reading that book because I simply found it on my kindle”…
It did not take long and I was reminded about the fun I had reading RoomHate…. I was laughing so hard at times and I could not stop marking quotes all along the way. My all time favorite being one that the author used herself …

But I remembered something … during all the fun I had reading RoomHate, there were times that were devastating and I had this nagging feeling about what the author might intend to do to the readers.
And that thought did not even fully manifest itself in my brain when that author hit me and I went full force from laughing so hard that tears were coming to directly letting those tears stream down my face because of an ugly crying.
Yeah what should I say – I am an emotional girl.
But this plot is also pretty special and I have to advice all readers to allow themselves to feel it.
Laugh as hard as you can but also don’t be afraid to cry …
Take a chance and if that does not work out – give it a second chance as well
(me shaking my head at myself – yeah I know – couldn’t help myself… puns and stuff)
