TITLE: Cocky Professor
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2020

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.


I was supposed to be starting a new life.

But, fate had something else in mind. 

I was in my senior year of college and had just started a new job at Morgan Financial Holdings and I was bound and determined to get my foot in the door of the business world. I refused to ask my Uncle Hollis for more help. He had given up his life to take care of me, no way was I going to ask him for anything else. 

However, my new professor, Declan Berkshire, just happened to be a huge cocky jerk. As the heir to a real estate franchise, he was both rich and a celebrity-- and truth be told, the hottest guy I had ever met. 

He also happened to be a client at Morgan Financial Holdings. Just my luck, right?

While I tried to keep a safe distance from Declan, he was finding every way possible to get my attention. 

We both knew it was wrong to fall into a relationship. He is my professor and I had way too much to lose if anyone were to find out, but we just couldn’t help ourselves. 

Then, we became front-page news.

Fearing I may have to drop my last class before earning my degree, I tried to end my relationship with Declan. Refusing to give me up, Declan fought for us when I didn’t think it was possible. 

With so much on the line, Declan made one of the most difficult decisions and one that led us to our own magical romance. But, it hasn’t been easy and someone is out to stop us from getting our happily ever after.

Cocky Professor with a side of Huh?

In Cocky Professor, M.A. Lee introduces her readers to Declan Berkshire and his student Hailey, who he instantly rubs the wrong way-no not like that. Declan is a rich, arrogant man and for some reason Hailey thinks she needs to be the woman that knocks him down a few pegs.

While I am a fan of this genre, the book was clunky and hard to stick with. I didn't feel there was much chemistry between our leads as the story line wandered all over the place. That coupled with the writing style made it difficult for me to really get in to this book. I'm not a fan of "no contraction" writing, it comes off as stiff and unrealistic. Also, the chapters in the beginning were all labeled as Hailey, so for a few sentences, you didn't know what was going on. Same with text threads, Declan was texting his buddy, but the thread was labeled Declan and me?? While this is an ARC edition, it was hard to appreciate the book with this many errors and inconsistencies through out.


M.A. LEE is the persona of a wife, mother, and coffee addict. Her love for writing began as a child and has flourished into a career as she fell in love with classic romance stories, but wanted to put her own twist on the ‘book boyfriend’ idea. You can find M.A. Lee enjoying time with her husband, kids, and dogs at her country home in Kentucky or at her many book signing events.
