The Cover: I love the colors and the model for Cocky Player, I just we could see more of the model’s face?
Basics: Cocky Player was released on September 24th 2019, book #4 in the Rough Riders series and is 282 pages long. Genre wise Cocky Player belongs to contemporary romance and sports romance.
Description: Like most guys I have a type— she wasn’t mine. Not at all.
The angelic beauty on the dance floor has innocence written all over her. But I can’t
stay away. And when she runs from me, leaving me wanting more, I can’t get her out of my head.
Turns out finding her won’t be too hard. My mystery virgin is the new marketing
assistant for the Rough Riders Football team. And the owner’s daughter.
She wants to lose her virginity and she’s come to me for one thing, and one thing
only. I’ll gladly help her out, but we have to be careful no one discovers us.
The last thing I need is for my boss to find out I’ve been teaching his baby girl all my dirtiest plays.
Overall thoughts: I was so EXCITED when Stacey Lynn announced she was writing another book for the Rough Rider series, yay! In real life I do not like football that much and I don’t enjoy it, however I am in love with sports romance books and the Rough Riders series by Stacey Lynn is one of my favorites!
Cocky Player focuses on Brenna and Connor: the daughter of the owner of the Rough Rider with a troubled past and Connor the running back for the Rough Riders. After finishing up college and coming back home, Brenna has decided to take matters into her own hands to lose her virginity and on her own terms. She didn’t think the man she would pick would be a star football player or her father’s employee.
Although resistant at first, Connor can’t stand away from Brenna and she can’t stay from him. Connor agrees to help her and both of them agree to just stay like this, nothing more. A strictly physical relationship, Connor teaching Brenna the ropes. As they spend more and more time together, the Raleigh Rough Riders finds himself growing more and more attracted to Brenna. She feels the same, but her past and his popularity threaten to tear them apart really before they could even begin.
I loved Cocky Player! It was a wonderful sports romance read and I love how heartfelt Brenna and Connor’s love story was! My only complaint was that I wish there was more written of their relationship as it got more and more established but other than another favorite book to add to my shelf!
My Rating: 5/5 Shells
