New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland



It started out like any normal day.


Then the fender bender happened.


The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.

Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.


Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.




Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.


The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.


So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.


To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.


At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.


But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)


We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.


This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?


Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.


Ours was one I didn’t see coming.

Amber’s Review:

Once again, this duo has provided their readers with one fabulous book.  Initially Hollis is an arrogant jerk… the best kind; the kind we all love to hate.

But as we get to know more about Hollis and his history, you quickly change your tune and begin to fall in love with him; just as Elodie does I. This latest installment of the Cocky Bastard series.

Park Avenue Player is the love story feature Hollis and Elodie. She’s the nanny hired to look after Hollis’ pre-teen niece that he is tasked with raising.  Both Hollis and Elodie are strong minded, stubborn and fiercely independent, this they initially clash. But as they get to know each other, their relationship morphs into more…with a nice and unknown twist.

Not to give anything away, but I was able to kind of guess what the twist turns out to be. And I wasn’t the least bit disappointed with the outcome.

Well written, fast read with engaging characters. Pick up Park Avenue Player and you won’t be disappointed.
