He’s the cockiest bastard I’ve ever met and I mean that with all the affection and adoration in the world. I’ve been in love with him for years, and not just because of those intense blue eyes or that slow smug smile that promises to make all your dreams come true. I’ve seen what lies under that smile and his cocksure attitude. It’s enough to make me melt.
Not that I’d ever let him know. Not only is Luke Cochran one of Hollywood’s up-and-coming movie stars…he’s also my boss. I’m his personal assistant and have seen all the women who come and go in his life.
I don’t even hold a candle. But a girl can dream…right?
Sabrina is one of the sharpest, funniest, kindest people I’ve ever met. Sometimes, I think I’m taking advantage of her, but I seriously cannot cope with my hectic lifestyle without her to keep me on track.
Of course, my life just got totally knocked off track. One of my sisters called. They need me back home. My mother is sick and the last thing I can think about is the promotional tour I’ve got coming up.
Sabrina’s coming with me. She’s the only person who can keep me focused and centered in a time like this. Besides, my family adores her. And it’s just a quick visit. My mother is tough. She’ll be alright.
But then something happens that knocks me for a loop and when my mother tells me that all she really wants in life is to see her kids happy and settled down, I do the stupidest damn thing ever and announce that Sabrina and I are in love. Now I’ve just got to convince my best friend to play along with me and act like she’s my fiancée and we’re stupid in love.
No big deal…right?

REVIEW: I read Cocksure while on vacation, it was the perfect vacation read. Let’s begin by saying Cocksure is exactly the kind of romance we all need to read. Luke Cochran is popular with women, he is one of the hottest Hollywood actors and he is also cockiest man alive. His cockiness takes a hit when he is found with his pants around his ankles. Amid the backlash, his manager & assistant take it upon themselves to try to restore his image.
Luke’s career is at all-time high, his reputation as a good actor is only shadowed by his reputation as a playboy, no woman can scape his charm and good looks, including his assistant Sabrina. Sabrina has been in-love with Luke since the moment she met him, but over the years she has put her job first and had soon understood that her crush and attraction for Luke is something she will never be able to indulge on.
The story develops quickly, Sabrina & Luke became friends when she started working for him as his assistant. She has made his life a lot more organized and Luke doesn’t know what he would do without her. Over the years, Sabrina has come to be Luke’s first hand, not just keeping him organized but also grounded. When family tragedy pushes Luke to the brink of a nervous breakdown, Sabrina is there to help her boss not realizing that she will soon experience heartbreak.
I really liked how the author created a fun dynamic between these characters. Their interaction flows easily. As these two characters experience life-changing situations, they are pushed closer and closer together, and it isn’t long until things start to unravel and a little white lie prove to be more difficult to handle than they anticipated. For Luke, getting close to Sabrina brings feelings he didn’t know existed, but for Sabrina getting so close and personal with Luke will only bring heart break, but she doesn’t shy away from the experience. He is exactly what she thought he would be, amazing.
Cocksure is a fun read. Luke is charming, he is smart, he is fun and he has a pull that can be dangerous. Sabrina is smart, beautiful and loyal to a fault. Cocksure reiterates the reality that lying can have dire consequences and our best bet is to always be honest. The author did a fantastic job with this story, the interaction & banter between Sabrina & Luke is sweet, sexy & very enjoyable. A fantastic read that can be enjoyed at any time and anywhere, Luke is wonderful and Sabrina is fantastic. Do yourself a favor and read this story, you will love it too.
