My musings…

Cocksure drew me in with the title and the synopsis, and while, overall, it is a good read, it lacks that something that made me want to pick it up and ignore the world.

The characters are okay. Nicko is the typical playboy who is never going to settle down until he meets the one. He is persistent in his pursuit, and, surprisingly is the one that wants more. He has many great qualities but his character felt very two dimensional. Everly seems very immature. She runs from her feelings and has trust issues, and her inability to commit is frustrating. I often found myself irritated by her comments and actions. Now, the authors attempt to give a reason for her behavior, but other than the trust issues, there is really no reason for it. Overall, the banter is good and the bedroom scenes are fine, but this couple just lacked that spark for me.

The pacing of this book is slow. It took forever for these two to even be physically in the same room together, and since the emotional chemistry is missing, the plot dragged. I needed them to be together more, to see them grow together more, and to see them fall in love. It was all just too slow. What is fast in the story is the inevitable conflict for this type of story, as well as the issue with another character that is introduced early. This is the best part of the book, and it was over in a few chapters.

Cocksure has real potential. The writing is good, and the makings of an amazing story are there. I just wish there would have been more couple time, more suspenseful moments…just more.



My life is great. I love my job, have awesome friends, and a great family.
Women love me, even if they know it’s just for a night.
I always thought love at first sight was bullshit. Then she came storming into my life.
She tore through my every rule, rocked my world, and knocked me on my ass.
There’s only one problem…she lied.
Turns out my best friends little sister isn’t so little anymore.


I stole a night with my fantasy. Lied to him.
After ten years of not seeing each other, Niko doesn’t even recognize me.
So I take what I want from him, what I need from him. Without worry. Without consequence.
What I didn’t count on was the lingering need for him.
What I chose to forget is that he is my brother’s best friend.
Once the truth is out, the game changes. There are consequences.
I should have known nothing in my life is ever simple.

It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.

Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.
