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.
Trent is through with women. Or so he thinks. Beautiful, self-assured Emily shatters his self-imposed barriers. Will he let her in or will his uptight manner chase her away forever?
A marriage of convenience has left Trent Darcy drained and wary of women. Next time he’ll marry a woman who is as much a cold fish as he is. But when he meets a coffee shop assistant at Heathrow Airport, he wants to get to know a woman better for the first time in years.
Emily Sandhurst thinks Trent is an entitled jerk. But after a misunderstanding, his eloquent apology improves her opinion of the haughty pilot. Having been left to raise her son alone after her partner died in Afghanistan, she’s working a dead-end job to show her son that privilege is earned. Should she tell Trent that she’s not all she seems?
Just when Trent thinks he could trust Emily, he learns of a family feud that could rip them apart. When tragedy strikes and Trent cuts contact, will Emily accept her fate or fight for the man she loves?
Uptight Flyboy is a single parent/forbidden/billionaire romance inspired by Playboy Pilot.

Fun and Feel-Good Read! – 5 stars
The latest contemporary romance from Em Taylor is a super fun read, featuring Trent, an uptight aristocratic pilot and Emily, a plain-speaking and sassy single mother. The book is part of the Cocky Hero Club series, but can be read as a standalone and I’ll definitely be checking out the other titles.
I loved how we get straight into their story from the off – sparks fly as soon as the couple meet. Indeed, Trent just does not know how to take Emily as she is so unlike the women he is used to, yet something about her gets under his skin and they have plenty of chemistry together… As for Emily she is not impressed by Trent and his stuck-up attitude, despite how damn attractive she finds him on a physical level…
To reveal more would spil the plot, suffice to say that their romance is not plain sailing. Both have secrets and emotional baggage and this makes for a story with plenty of emotional highs and lows amidst the fun and smexy scenes. The supporting cast of characters were a great foil for their adventures.
Recommended for romance fans who are after a sexy feel-good read which contains humour, emotional angst and engaging characters.

Please note, a copy of this book was given to me by the author and I am leaving a fair and honest review.
Em Taylor is a self-professed dreamer. As a child she dreamed of having her own island, just like George in the Famous Five. She now dreams of a world where there is peace, love and vampires are good kind people who will help her live forever once she finds a handsome hunky one to be her soul mate.
Hailing from the Central belt of Scotland, Em has tried her hand at many jobs. She now works as an activity co-ordinator in a care home. Also known as a professional dominoes player.
She writes Contemporary, Regency, and Science Fiction romance in her spare time, when she can drag herself away from Once Upon a Time, The West Wing, and Grace and Frankie on the TV.
