Cocky Cowboy
(Cocker Brothers of Atlanta #3)
By Faleena Hopkins

Jaxson & Rachel haven’t seen one another for twenty years. , they were close childhood friends but they were separated when they were around nine or ten- now after all those years both seem to still have a connection to each other
Jaxson is the Cowboy, who lives the quiet life in the country with his farm animals- he’s not fan of the big city life
Jaxson is usually the quiet one, so when the Cocker clan got call to come bail Jaxson
Camille Adams
This whole series is light popcorn filler, but this installment is particularly superficial and flimsy. A lot of repetition, telling not showing, unfunny jokes, paper-thin characterisations, pathetic sex scenes, and cotton candy family relations.

The most ridiculous part though: (view spoiler)

Very poorly written. I recommend not reading. Plus I’ve read this character name in too many other books. Definitely not original. I would skip this author altogether.
Just.. no. I'm taking a break from this series.

This is the third book in the series and I did not like it! The book is the story of Jackson & Rachel, It is a romance between childhood fried to lover. My first pet peeve is the fact that they first got together when Rachel was still with her BF. Now I'm not a prude, but there are thing that I don't like, not in my fantasy, or real life. If it was the guy in the relationship who did it we would be calling him all sort of name, so cheering for the girl feel hypocritical to me. Beside she was ...more

Not ok with the dad getting off so easily especially with his hypocrisy towards Jett & how the whole family allows Jett to be an outcast because of the father being self righteous liar.

From the blurb of this book I thought I was going to love it, but was so deeply disappointed by it. The flashbacks didn't work for me. I didn't care about all the cheating, the drama and the plot twists.

I haven't read this book and I never intend to. The author has burned all the bridges with her trademark on the word "cocky" and is a disgrace to romance writers and fans alike.
This is Book 3 in the Cocker Brothers series and is based around Jaxon. While I loved this series, there were some things in it that didn’t endear me to Jaxon and Rachel’s story unlike Jake and Jett’s. One of them was the constant “Off my, off his, off her” that frequently started off sentences. I don’t know if it’s just because I don’t know anyone who starts off with that phrase, it just felt off-putting or awkward to me. It also felt as if it didn’t make sense because of the phrasing although ...more

I don't usually leave one star reviews. But since you complain about people leaving one star reviews, while attacking other authors with your own, I don't feel bad Ms. Hopkins. You bullshit about spreading light and what not, but YOU are the real bully (and people see through you). You messed with the wrong community. And all of the authors you sent threatening letters and messages to? The ones you called "hacks" and attacked as people because you decided to own the word "cocky"? I intend to fin ...more blog~

Jaxson and Rachel.......

This was my first book by this author and I loved it! The Cocker Brothers of Atlanta Series is currently 12 books including a novella. I believe there is at least one more book to come. While I started this series with book three, a completely random decision, I had no trouble following along. The entire series is interconnected, however each can be read as a standalone.

Rachel and Jaxson knew each other as children, until Rachel and her family moved away. Jaxson was always able to talk with Rachel unlike anyone else. Rachel lives with Ryan, a stuck up and self centered lawyer. When Jaxson sees Rachel again, the sparks fly. Jaxson is determined to not let her get away again. I enjoyed this second chance romance, with many twists and turns. I did not like Rachel's devotion to Ryan when the story opened with her realizing what a jerk he is and how poorly he treats ...more

After reading Cocky Roomie, I went into this story thinking it would be just as amusing with some angst. I never expected it to be quite so intense and passionate, with an emotional punch.

“I’ve never needed anyone, but I need you.”

Rachel and Jaxson were close childhood friends but they were separated when they were ten and haven’t seen one another for twenty years. An expected meeting results in Jaxson punching Rachel’s boyfriend, a break up with said boyfriend, and Rachel and Jaxson giving into
This is a really good book but, the twist is really odd and I did not like that part. It was ridiculous and unnecessary. Other than that, this was another solid book in the series.

This is a stand-alone, exciting series, and can easily be enjoyed out of order.


Can you really find your soulmate when you're only eight years old...only to lose her two years later and never know what happened ?

No way. It can't be...Yes, it's her...

When Jaxson and Rachel meet again after years new feelings blossom into wild passion, but their future holds obstacles that threaten to tear them apart. Emotions run high in this titillating second chance romance that is sure to keep you hooked until the heart-melting conclusion.

Jaxson has his own ranch, doesn’t talk much, can have any woman he wants and as far as relationships go he can live without them. When Rachel his childhood best friend

Out of the Cocker clan, Jaxson is usually the quiet one. He maintains a pretty low profile, compared to his more boisterous brothers, and stays out on his beautiful ranch with his cows, horses and chickens. While he had his basic needs met by some of the many women around who would love to snag a sexy Cocker brother, not one has even tempted him to even introduce them to his family, let alone consider exclusivity. That all changes in a flash when by pure chance, he catches sight of his best chil ...more

With such uninspired and overused titles I’m not surprised she needs to cheat in order to keep them original. Instead of threatening people she should use the time to come up with something new.

Sometimes romance books (or any book in a series) can become very formulaic and tedious. I am happy to report that this book had me guessing from chapter to chapter. I like that Jaxson doesn't do and say everything the way a classic romance character is expected. I adore that Rachel also doesn't behave as your typical female character in a book is "supposed" to behave. They both have a developed personality and neither compromise too much for the other while still complimenting each other. I kno ...more

An absolutely fabulous read! Not to give too much away but the main characters meet up again at age 32 when they haven't seen each other since they were 10. They were best friends and sparks fly instantly. There are complications, some predictable, some surprising but it is all revealed in a believable, funny, heartbreaking and triumphant way. I just couldn't put it down. Well, I fell asleep 30 pages in (I was tired, a very long day) but I finished it the next night and now I want to read it aga ...more

Oh how I love the Cocker brothers! Jaxson is such a gentle soul, but when he sees Rachel, the woman whom he loved as a little girl, with her hot shot lawyer that calls Jaxson a loser. So, Jaxson punched him, twice. This leads Rachel and Jaxson down an unexpected path that is full of surprises, heartbreak and family secrets. I could not put this book down once I started!! I love how when a Cocker brother sets his sights, he fights for his woman. However, could things be insurmountable? Loved Jaxs ...more

This is an excellent contemporary romance. Jaxson is a quiet man and has a lovely ranch. He and Rachel were best friends from the first grade until at age 10-11. Rachel and her parents moved away which affected both of them. Twenty years later they run into one another and sparks fly. There are nunumerous reasons for them to stay away from one another but... Trials and tribulations and destructive secrets could destroy them. I received a free copy of this book solely in exchange for an honest op ...more

First off this book will be hard for some readers, I know it was for ripped my heart out with the characters and boy did I need tissues.
BUT I also loved every interaction with them, the typical Cocker attitude, with glimpses of Jaxson's peace, the shattering of beliefs and the rocking passion and what can happen when secrets are kept.
Passion abounds and fists fly (boy did that make me laugh) tears poured and then laughter soared. Frustration and feeling the emotions of these characters

I'm really enjoying Ms. Hopkins books. She is a new author for me and I'm loving this "Cocker Brothers " series. All three of her books, so far, have been packed with humor, love, hot sex, and drama. I was really looking forward to Jaxson's story and she didn't disappoint. He is the oldest one and known as the quieter brother and more of a loner. He runs into his childhood best friend , Rachel, who had to move away when she was ten, and bam, all the feelings come rushing forward and the

I had a feeling I would love this book, and I was right! Although, I have to admit Jaxson's character wasn't quite what I expected. And the twists that I never saw coming - WOW. You think you know how everything is going to play out, but you really don't. You'll be outraged, heartbroken, happy, and definitely turned on. :) True to Falena's previous Cocky brothers books, this one is super hot, but also very sweet and definitely tugged at my heartstrings. Loved every word and can't wait for the ne ...more

This is my favorite Cocker brother so far. Childhood friends that get separated only to find each other again. Love how the whole soulmate thing works out. Now I can't wait for the next Cocker brother story cause they just keep getting better. If you want to read some great books read these or any of Faleenas other books she has written. She is a great writer and the books are great reads. I can never put them down.

I received this book as an ARC.
It was a funny, sweet story that began in childhood.....a ten yr old that quotes Shakespeare? Awesome.
The story moved along quite well, even the parts that were sad. I love the interaction of the brothers and can't wait for the rest of the stories. Very well written. I am a fan for life.

I just finished reading the new book after receiving as an ARC... I loved it. Jaxson and Rachel story is an amazing heartfelt story, with love and sorrow and wonder. Childhood friends who knew when they were younger they were meant to be and grow up to find that love again. I wanted to cry and laugh right along with them. As always, an amazing story Faleena.

I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review. I loved this book. The Cocker brothers are the ultimate bad boys with a loving heart. With Jaxson and Rachel's story I laughed and cried. I can't wait for more. The talented Ms. Hopkins has hit it out of the ballpark once more. I highly recommend this book.
