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.

Cocksure is the first in Shiloh Walker's new series, Cochrans of Cocker County, and introduces us to Luke Cochran, cocky playboy both on and off the big screen. His story is a diverse mix of tropes with friends-to-lovers, employer-employee, and fake-relationship all thrown into one book. And then there was an added surprise of some emotional storylines being brought in. All together in made for one very intriguing story.

The first half of this book really followed the typical formulas of this type of romance. I was starting to worry a bit that there wouldn’t be enough originality to keep me on the hook. I was glad I waited to see where it went because the second half started to give me what I sought. Luke became more dynamic as the story unfolded: his past lending itself to emphasize a vulnerability that created growth and depth for him. Sabrina had a chance to take risk and move beyond her comfort zone. Togethe ...more

This was so much better than I expected it to be. I knew from the title and the recent trademark situation what this author was doing, but I really wasn’t sure what the story was going to be like. I couldn’t have been more thrilled at just how GOOD it was!

An incident in Luke’s life when he was young has haunted him throughout the years but with the help of his assistant, Sabrina, he has managed it to some small degree. When he is called home due to a family emergency he finds himself making an o

A book inspired by a recent headline kerfuffle of some goofy author trying to trademark a word. So the result is the first book in an amusing, hot, first book in family series. Looks like it might be looking at some serious issues in a rather well well done way.

I kind of hate Luke here b/c it's not just that he's arrogant (or cocky) he's also a user and takes advantage of everyone around him, while still thinking he's a "good guy." I mean, he recognizes he's an asshole but he still thinks he's a nice asshole if that makes sense.

And Sabrina just.. goes along with it (the scheme) b/c she lurves him so much and ugh. I definitely had the feels in the end though when it all explodes (of course) and I'm glad Sabrina was done with Luke's brand

Starting off a sweet and sexy new series, Ms. Walker pulls her fans back into her world of loveable characters. There are two things I can always rely on when reading a Ms. Walker contemporary romance : angst and loveable characters. For those new to Ms. Walker, this is a great book to start reading.

Sabrina is the quintessential personal assistant extraordinaire. Where do I find one of her? I need one. Sabrina's been taking care of Luke's logistics both personal and professional for the past few

I truly give this story a 5 out of 5. It was a light read towards the beginning with hints of more serious issues and I liked how it organically developed.

Sabrina is strong as hell! She is snarky, loving, and genuinely a warm but protective person. She sees beyond Luke's persona and is probably the only person that knows him, even though she works for him as his assistant. She has been in love with him for ever, but hides it just well enough that he has no clue.

Luke is a super successful actor
Three and a half stars.

Who doesn't love a fake relationship with your boss romance? Sabrina has been Luke Cochran's assistant for four years and probably in love with him for all that time. Luke on the other hand, gorgeous millionaire actor that he is, doesn't have a clue. However, when his mother suffers a heart attack and tells him how much she worries about him he panics and tells her that he and Sabrina are secretly engaged.

But Luke is hiding a secret from the world, something that made him

Definite cute read that I enjoyed. Luke and Sabrina have a proper nice relationship both in the workplace and out of it. Even though it’s cliche, the whole ‘fake dating/engagement’ trope never fails to amuse me, so personally I had a great time with this book LOL

One thing however bugged me: so apparently they’ve been working togeter for 5 whole years... and only just now they kiss for the first time? I think the time of how long they l’ve known each other should be shortened to a maximum of 1 ye

Barely a three star. It had some promise but the behavior of the main character, Luke was appalling and Sabrina has doormat written on her as Luke treats her as a friend when she's so sweet in him. He's anything but interested in her. Ok, we find out he's got a big secret that may account for reckless behavior but he's still not going to be book boyfriend material. I got no warm connection to this character. The book then turns into (no offense) Hallmark movie for last 25%. Oh, I so wanted this ...more

Cocksure is a great start to the Cochrans of Cocker series by Shiloh Walker. A well written, easy to read story with engaging characters and dynamic interaction and this is just book 1. If this is any indication of the rest of the series, I will definitely be first in line for the other books. Do yourself a favour and grab this for your collection.

For all the crap that went down with #cockygate earlier this year (and it was pure crap and totally awful), this book is a bright spot to come out of it (I'm not touching the actual scandal here, I won't get into it...I'm just sayin). I never thought I'd be happy for that woman's actions (not that I am, because it royally ticked me off), but it brought me this book so...I'm glad things worked out in the end.

So, with that said, I loved this book. I loved Sabrina and Luke. I loved their friendshi

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 11/19/18.

To be honest, I saw the author and title of this one--paired with the series name--and read just the beginning of the blurb, and said, "Eh, sure, I'll read it..." just because I figured anything inspired by the recent court case would at the very least be entertaining.

I really wasn't expecting the places that this one took us to, though. It ended up having so much more to it than just a reaction to all of that ridiculousness, and a impressive numb

The Cochrans of Cocker County #1, It feels so nice to get a Shiloh Walker book in my hands again. Shiloh has created a fantastic family series this along with being a wonderful romance it was a great introduction to the family, I can't wait for the other books. The emotions in this book run deep, I was in tears at a couple of parts. Luke and Sabrina are hot together. It's a friends to lovers romance with an alternating first person POV. The characters have great depth and you really e

Sabrina Maxwell has gone through something a child should never have to go through. Luke Cochran seems to be really full of himself – God’s gift and all. This author takes on the task of creating a character with two real conditions. My love for this book started with her inspiration for this story – bravo!

Sabrina seems to be a self-assured woman until she’s around her boss. Luke is a man that I’m not sure about in the beginning. He’s an actor that has an outside persona that he lets the world s

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 act

My love for Shiloh Walker’s words has never been a secret. If there’s a book out there with her name on it, I own/read it already. Some of them more than once :)

I love everything behind the *birth* of this series. The issue behind trademarking commonly used words and authors behaving very very badly. For that alone, this book should be purchased by everyone! If you’re unsure of what I’m referring to, just Google *cockygate* and you can get all caught up.

Cocksure was an incredibly enjoyable story that I found to be intriguing form the first moment I started to read the story. The characters I loved to read about and the instant connection between the two main characters. I enjoyed the banter within the story and the love that was evident throughout the story between the main characters and the Luke family.

Sabrina, I enjoyed reading about because it was apparent how much she cared for Luke and his family. I love the way she was willing to do any

You can’t judge a book by its title can you? I seriously wasn’t even aware that it was an ACTUAL WORD!! And I call myself a writer 🙈
But seriously, this story caught me by surprise! I was approved by Net galley for this one and I was pretty sure I was in for something sexy. I wasn’t wrong! This book chalk full of steamy goodness!🔥🔥But I was pleasantly surprised to find how invested I got with the story.

Well, what a great story! It had a bit of everything, cockiness, shyness,laughter, reflection, insecurity, strength, sexiness and grit. Sabrina is the perfect admin to a larger than life movie star, Luke. Luke has a few insecurities and so does Sabrina. There's lots going on in Luke's life and as usual Sabrina takes care of it without Luke noticing it or her. It's a lovely journey filled with thoughtful and stirring moments, and funny ones too.

Man this author is amazing. I haven't read alot of books by this author but when I saw the blurb for Cocksure I knew I had to read it. Sabrina and Luke were perfect for eachother and amazing to read about. Luke is a star and Sabrina is his assistant /bestie/ and his everything girl he seriously couldn't function without her even though he feels bad using her so much but he needs her. When he gets a call about his mom health he rushes home. But he is surprised when she tells him she wants

IF this is the first in the series THIS IS GOING TO BE A GREAT SERIES!!!!!!

Love the way Shiloh Walker writes - it's always easy to read and so descriptive I'm living the book as I go.

Ina is in love but afraid to admit it, afraid to be hurt and afraid to NOT act on what she feels.

Luke is your typical celebrity who's screwing his way through the world rather than risk feeling something for someone.

Shiloh Walker is a new author for me. And let me tell you, this won’t be my last!!!

Cocksure is an absolutely beautiful story! So much love, hurt, but also fun and banter in it. It’s fantastic!

Sabrina is the PA of Luke, Hollywood Star par excellence. She’s secretly in love with him for years!
Luke’s best friend is Sabrina, Ina as he affectionately calls her, is oblivious to all that of course.

This story has another like ‘side-story’ going on, which makes it even more interesting! You have to know

I really wasn't sure what to think of this book when I first started it. I half expected it to be more of rom-com, with heavy stress on the comedy.


It was far from that. Yes there were parts that I laughed, but it was so much more than that. I loved the angst in it, especially near the end. I'm glad the author didn't just have Sabrina back down and take him back too quickly. I loved that she stuck up for herself and believed in herself despite the fact that she had been in love with him for y

Cocksure is a fun mixed bag of tricks. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen next the author up and surprises you with a twist. This is a delightful romp with a serious subplot and a truly wonderful read.

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Cute story. A little cliched, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Sabrina has been in love with her boss, move star Luke, for years. Of course, he never notices. But when his mom is seriously ill, he pretends they are engaged to soothe his mom.

Not a whole lot of surprises, but good story.
2.5 stars
This book had a lot going on. A fake relationship. A girl in love with her boss. A man with dark secrets. Whew. It just seemed like a lot of plot lines for one story.
Kim Vanravenswaay
I am so very glad that Luke is not as cocky as the book description made him out to be. Sabrina can be a push over at times, but she sure is great at her job. I will be suggesting Cocksure, to all of my friends.
