He wasn’t meant to be on my radar, he was definitely the off-limits guy.
My brother’s best friend, my friend’s ex, but most of all he was my boss.
Hawk Carnage resembled one thing, and one thing only. Sex.
He used it, he knew it, he lived it. Hawk owned the largest lingerie company in the world, and I was his leading lady.
In business.
But now business and friendship were

One clicked out of solidarity.

This is not my go to genre these days, but once I saw that these women had to change the title of their book (it's now called "Arrogant Fiance on Amazon), I went out and bought it to show my support. Not of Faleena's ridiculous claims of trademark, but as a show of support for authors who were bullied into changing their own brand over a temper tantrum thrown by a supposed "Adult" author.

Not sure when I'll get around to reading this, but I still wanted to show that

Shelves: dnf, shallow
After I understood how shallow the book is, I just skimmed and scanned it to make sure it was definitely unworthy of my time - it sadly was and I dropped it.

This book feels as if it is written knowing the smut sells; however, it is not that good, either, nope, it is shallow, too - no chemistry, no steam, no feelings, just the action!

Oh, and there is no talk of safe sex, no talk of protection, no use of condoms. Where on earth do these people live, I wonder? In the smut-fiction-land, only?

A hot and sexy forbidden romance that you will read in one sitting! Cocky Fiancé by TL Smith and Melissa Jane was perfect in every way.

“He was completely off limits…”

Hawk Carnage is definitely off limits for Britta and she knows it. They’ve known each other for quite some time. Friend to her protective brothers and she’s his model for his successful lingerie company. However, when she is confronted by her ex-boyfriend Roman, then i

Hello Hawk Carnage... #HubbaHubba

This is my first time reading either of these authors, (though each have titles on my TBR), so I’m unfamiliar with their individual styles. What I do know having finished Cocky Fiancé however, is that together their writing is fluid and seamless.

Draw in quickly by the likeable characters & their sassy, snarky banter, I rarely put the book down. It’s funny, smart, steamy, & layered with a little twisty angst, all making it an enjoyable & engaging read.
No rating

This book had so much potential but for me was a complete bust! Between the characters, the storyline....everything, ughhhhh, just a no go for me! I tried to push through but had to give up halfway thru...had to speed read and finally skipped to end! Just not for me:(

Cocky Fiance was an incredibly fast, entertaining, dramatic and steamy read. Hawk Carnage (what a name) is the boss of Britta and he’s the owner of the largest lingerie business. After a run in with her ex, she found herself in a fake engagement with her boss.

I was enjoying myself so much that I read the book in one sitting. Britta and Hawk balances each other out. I loved their banter which are adorable, witty and definitely dirty. Britta’s family is so supportive of her career yet they don’t

I wanted to like this one more, but just as I was enjoying their little secret romance there was a jump the shark moment in the storyline. The mystery of the redhead and the ensuing drama wasn't really needed and added a moment of angst that really did nothing for the story (other than irritate me)l

Super hot, super sexy read!

This book consumed me for the few hours it took to read it. For a writing duo to write so seamlessly is freaking RARE!!

Cocky Fiancé is witty, super hot and utterly,utterly addictive.

I hope we get many more books from these two authors together.

So this is my first T.L. Smith book and I have heard great things about her and her books and I am so happy to have read this book. This is a cute story about Hawk and Britta who have been friends since childhood. And although Britta has always seen Hawk as something more she has never acted on it or really shown anything more than friendship towards him. So when Britta needs a fake fiance for her ex-boyfriend's wedding and Hawk just happens to offer his services things start getting cute and fu ...more

Such a good book!! I read it in one sitting and enjoyed every minute of it. This story doesn't lag at any point, the characters are so well thought out, I loved all the brothers, I wish they would get their own books but I don't know if that's in the cards or not. Melissa Jane and TL Smith should write together more often. This story is told in dual pov.

Mmmm.... Let’s Talk Hawk!

I just love a writing duo that can come together and give you a story that consumes you from beginning to end. I want to do cartwheels because I simply loved this book so much.

What can I say about Hawk Carnage? The man is that “Book Boyfriend” you yearn to read about. He’s intense, broody, passionate and sexy as all get out. He starts out as sort of an enigma and you’re trying to figure out what in the world he’s up too, then the story REALLY kicks in and we have actual

Arrogant Fiancé is a very sexy collaboration by T.L Smith and Melissa Jane. I am very familiar with both authors, having read Ms. Smith’s ‘Dark Intentions’ series, and Ms. Jane’s ‘Monsters’ and the ‘Bittersweet’ series. I have loved their individual worked, so I was excited by what their writing partnership would produce. To say they got their recipe right is an understatement. What they have delivered is a wonderful, seamless, cohesive and polished piece of work- a real credit to them bo

An enjoyable read!

Ok so I freely admit that the initial reason I bought this book was to help support these authors during the #cockygate incident. They are both new to me authors, and generally I don't buy books from new authors that cost more than $.99 just because I've been burned in the past. However, with all the drama going on I wanted to show my support for all these authors (and I did so by purchasing several books) but I digress...

I'm soooo glad that Arrogant Fiance was one of the book

Cocky Fiance was my first book by new to me authors T.L Smith and Melissa Jane.

I really enjoyed it!

Hawk was HOT and Britta hilariously adorkable with just the right amount of sass.

This book was sweet, sexy, and funny.

Some parts were a bit infuriating, and I thought Britta to be a bit too forgiving when it came to a certain friend of hers.

However, the cast of side characters were entertaining and the family dynamic amusing and heartwarming.

This is a great collaboration between these two authors. It did take me a little time but not that long to start falling for Hawk. I always enjoy that office romance/ brothers friends type tropes. The storyline held my interest throughout and we were even given a few twists and turns. As we move further into the story I was more and more intrigued with where things were heading and couldn’t find out the events fast enough. Wonderful story and I will definitely be looking into more of these two a ...more

I don't know we're to begin, but let's start at the beginning I guess. I felt like the plot was all over the place, many things didn't make sense and in my opinion i didn't feel the attraction between the characters. The book mentions many things, but by the end of the book everything hangs loose and we don't have an answer for everything. Now I can understand that this is probably supposed to be a quick read and therefore the pace has to pick up, but when everything feels rushed it's not good. ...more

"If she fucked like she kissed, we would never leave the apartment."

I'm a little lost for words here. Seriously! I never imagined when I started this book, I'd be finished just a few hours later. I had such a great time reading it, that time just flew by. My travel home from my sisters place never felt shorter.

Cocky Fiancé is a quick paced, witty, hot as hell and entertaining story. So basically it has all the necessary ingredients to become a great book. It's far from the dark books I'm used to

I really did have the greatest time reading Cocky Fiancé. It’s that kind of a book you won’t be able to put down, not only because it’s rocking your booty but it also has a heart and will keep you on your toes.

So this was a new author pairing and it worked, as I read a collaboration I always try to work out who wrote which part but I have no idea which makes me happy.

I loved the relationship between Hawk and Britta it’s fun and flirty the banter had me smiling and laughing continually. The chemistry is off the charts, you can feel the sparks flying the writing makes you feel like you are there every step of the way.

From the first page I was invested in the story and the characters. Hawk is sex on leg
Wow! This was great fun. Two great authors a great collaboration.
Britta works for Hawk Carnage, the owner of a successful lingerie company. She's his assistant and his right hand man. Britta has just had a bad relationship breakup and is attempting to move on, which includes continuing mooning over her sexy boss, when said dumb a** ex boyfriend calls to inquire if she's received her invite to his wedding. Caught on the hop, she replies she has and is bringing her own fiancé. Oops!! Gotta find a
Cocky Fiancé is a fun and very entertaining read with just the right amount of intrigue and twists you won’t see coming. It’s like a buffet of forbidden romance and unexpected conflicts. It’s somehow your typical fake fiancé tale where the couple ends up developing feelings for each other and falling in love, but not quite completely. Hawk and Britta’s story tended to be more intense and a whirlwind that can end up blowing you away if you don’t buckle up and hold on.

Hawk Carnage....Very self assured, all things drool worthy, powerful in business and a womanizer like you wouldn't believe. Yeah he's got the lot and Britta wants a piece of the action.

Hawk and Britta are entertaining! I'm a sucker for an office romance, but we get sooooo much more, as Hawk is Britta's brothers best friend, and frat brother. Which should make their chemistry and attraction a no go. And as much as they try and deny it, they are sooooo into

Cocky Fiance is witty and sexy. I knew after reading the first few pages, this was going to be an addictive read, AND it was!

Hawk's this hot business owner, with a no FG attitude, that I loved. But I think it was Britta that I wanna be like when I grow up. Her characters definitely GOALS. Beautiful, smart and funny as heck. And her hot brothers! Hello, adopt me! Fingers crossed the Valentino brothers get their own books.

I look forward to reading more by this fantastic duo.
