Publisher's Summary

Emma   

When my best friend Aubrey asked me to tag along to an event with her, I never could have imagined that it would be the day that my life changed forever. He's arrogant and demanding and doesn't take a hint. Landon Barker, the quarterback for the Hermosa Beach Trojans, is a player on and off of the field. He's got his sights set on me as his next play, but I see right through him. Aubrey says I'm overreacting, that I should give him a chance. What she doesn't realize is men like Landon don't fall for the girl next door. That's not reality. She got her fairytale, although it was a long road. Not all of us are that lucky.  

Landon   

She's a friend of our new kicking coach's wife. When I ask Chance for her number, he tells me I have to find a way to get it myself.   

Nothing when it comes to Emma has been easy. She's the first woman ever to turn me down, and that won't do. However, as time passes, it's about more than that. It's about her smile, her laugh, and just spending time with her. She thinks I'm a player, and she's right. What she doesn't know is that I play to win, and her heart is the ultimate trophy.

Lucky Bastard

This was another sweet romance in the Hero Club series. I’m enjoying them so much, all fun easy (low drama) reads. This is a spin-off of Cocky Bastard - Emma is Aubrey’s BFF and Landon is QB of the NFL team Chance just joined as the kicking coach. I really enjoyed it.

Fantastic story and performance!

I love a good chase! Add in a cocky hero and it's even better. Kaylee Ryan has done it again; another story that pulls you in from page 1 and keeps you reading right up to the last epilogue. The last several chapters were a surprise but I still got my HEA.

A sexy and adorable read

I enjoyed each and every sports romance in the Cocky Hero Club universe I’ve read or listened to so far, including this one. There wasn’t anything original or spectacular, but it was a nice read with compelling characters and a sweet storyline.

I loved reading about the lengths Landon is ready to go to to win Emma’s heart. The book is really about seduction. It makes it a sexy and adorable read, that will rot your teeth.

It had been some time since I last listened to Teddy Hamilton’s narration, and it was like coming home to a long time friend. He knows how to play the approachable alpha with a soft side. On the other side, Savannah Peachwood offers a gentle yet strong female character, just the right person to win the heart of the alpha male. The combination was perfect for this book.

Really enjoyed listening

As a new-to-me author but familiar with the ideology behind the Hero Club, I was going into the story only halfway blind. By the end of the first two chapters I knew I had picked a winner. The story was well written, had a good flow, and transitioned between chapters and POVs nicely. To top it off, I really enjoyed the story itself. I love getting glimpses of favorite characters in cameos of other books. Having that gave me an instant connection to Landon and Emma.
The narrators Savannah Peachwood and Teddy Hamilton are two of my favorites and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to their performance.
I'm looking forward to more stories in the Hero Club and will definitely check out more by this author.

Good Story and very engaging!

4.5 Stars for me!

I really enjoyed this story and found myself invested in the MCs and supporting characters. The twist was a bit different but I had a strong idea of what it was. It was handled well and the author did not drag out any of the conflicts which is very refreshing. There are explicit sexual scenes but they enhance the story and don't have the H breaking physiological boundaries! 😏

Definitely worth the listen!

Annoyed

Both MCs annoyed me. I just couldn't connect with either of them, so the book dragged on for me, to the point in which I was skipping whole chapters just to finish It. Not for me. Too bad, because I really like the narrators, especially Teddy Hamilton.

My favourite in the Cocky Hero World so far!

5 stars!

-audio review-

Oh my goodness I LOVED Landon & Emma. Lucky Bastard has been my favourite book in the Cocky Hero Series so far! It is a sweet, and steamy sports romance and I devoured it. I could not stop listening from start to finish. I loved getting to see Aubrey & Chance (from Cocky Bastard) again. Emma is Aubrey’s bestie and they are working together on an event for the animal shelter they work at. Emma has a heart of gold and has a bit of hesitation at first in getting involved with Landon. Landon is a professional football player and is the perfect man for Emma. He meets her and he turns on the charm immediately. He is confident and relentless in his pursuit of her. She made him work for it and of course it was so worth it! Their passion and chemistry was amazing! There is a little twist at the end I never saw coming and I loved it. Fantastic writing! Savannah Peachwood and Teddy Hamilton were the perfect choice in narrators. I love them. Their voices really bring these characters to life.

Enjoyable without too much angst

A sweet read, although predictable, I won't complain. The characters are likable and memorable. The performance was believable with a good tempo and proper emotional expression throughout. Needs more pixie though. I love that goat!

Good story

This book has a lot of inconsistencies.
Example: Emma says she owns the house and that it isn’t much but it’s hers. Then later on in the story talks about how she cannot have pets because the landlord doesn’t allow it. At the end they talk about how they listed her house. Just a lot of little inconsistencies throughout the story
