British accents should come with a warning label. When they’re attached to deep, baritone voices that belong to sexy, cocky men, you should have to sign a waiver.
Most people wouldn’t touch short-term rental properties, but since my business partner took off with my client list, I need every deal I can get. Enter, one insanely sexy and completely exasperating Camden Reid.
The smug executive found fault with every property I showed him. Too cramped. Too feminine. Too far from a decent pub.
His demands were ridiculous, and I couldn’t wait to be rid of him and his British bangers.
Somewhere between the first property and the zillionth, though, my attraction to Camden grew impossible to ignore.
His insane demands finally met, the arrogant Adonis proposed we christen his new temporary home.
Little did I know how addicted I’d become, or just how unforgettable my time with Camden would be.
After all, I knew we had an expiration date.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

This book is part of the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
He’s the kind of man who blows into your life like a sex hurricane, then heads down the coast to the next stop.
As a follower of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward’s work, I’ve truly enjoyed the idea of this collection.
This book didn’t disappoint. For others like me, that have been following this partnership for a while, this has characters from British Bedmate (Dear Bridget), and it is always nice to see glimpses of these great characters.
This was a fun, sexy story with quite an expected twist.
I also have to say, that I have took out 1 star because some actions from the female character were very not ok, and I think the story didn’t really showed that it was wrong.
Fun, sexy romance!!!

Character: hero 5/5, heroine 4/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 Multifaceted characters with lots of layers to them and descriptive background.
Quinn was a good heroine. I really liked Quinn, until she got me mad. 🙂 I’m did’t think that I was usually so judgmental, but in my opinion, some of her choices were poor ones, and I just wanted to feel how serious her mistake was, and that she really understood that. I didn’t mind the mistake, but I wanted to see her evolving from it. Yes, I liked her after that to-stupid-to-live moment, but I felt the need to point it out here.
Camden was hot and wonderful! Really, he was unexpected. I thought he was going to be one of those anti-hero/hero, that I would be on the fence with and he became book boyfriend material. Yes, he had his TSTL moments also, but he was a guy, I always expect those from them. 🙂 He was cocky, hot, sexy.. he was also a great brother and a good boyfriend.
Secondary characters I love the family and friends. They are all amazing characters and it was fun seeing some from the past.
Villain/antagonists … there were no villains and antagonists here, the couple didn’t need them, they self-sabotaged their relationship themselves.
All characters were easy to love, connect and understand even with a couple of to-stupid-to-live moments.
Freshness: 4/5 That was nothing out of the world original here, but there was a very unexpected twist that made the story fresh and unique. As fresh as mint mentos!!!
Plot: believable 5/5, conflict 3.5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 5/5, twists 5/5 Great opening and exciting ending. Believable plot, with fun dialogues and great pace. Good setting, interesting subplots with unexpected twist. Good level of enjoyment!
To write from someone else’s world build must be challenging and Ms. Woodhull did it really well. She not only brought back some favorite characters, but she also meshed them together with the new ones she created. It all felt cohesive and believable. Loved it!
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 3.5/5, steam 4/5 Fun, sexy times! Their chemistry was undeniable and their banter was fun. The descriptions were also great. Good smut! Hot romance!!!
Writing Style: 4.5/5 Great characters with amazing pace, really good plot and sexy romance. All this part of a cohesive story with no loopholes. Great writing!!!
Cover: art 3.5/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 4/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. This one was ok. Too generic for me. What really attracted me was the title. I love a British accent and hero and was hooked from the beginning. I would probably buy this book by its cover, but I had to read the blurb.
I already talked too much how I wished that the female characters actions had a bigger reaction to it.
