Decker Collins knows how to do one thing—win.
When his billion-dollar law practice moves to merge with a firm out of Dallas, she shows up to oversee the transition.
Tate Reynolds—the vixen in Versace.
She’s whip-smart, sassy, and gorgeous. Oh, and she doesn’t take any of Decker’s sh*t.
Okay, here’s the thing, I reeeeeally liked this book. And for me, that was a big high. Why? Because one of the authors I had yet to read so yay, new author for me and the other had been a huge miss for me in the past so yay, a hit for an author that’s been a miss before!!! See, big high! :) But I have one issue I’m gonna tell you about (but I’ll hide it as a spoiler) before I tell you why it was so great ..
(view spoiler)[Jesus Christ on a cracker Weston was an ASSHOLE (and not the good kind). So much so that it will be a cold day in hell before I download his book and read it. It’s bad ya’ll and mainly because he could have been the harsh boss he needed to be without being an absolute ASSHOLE. So, the authors made choices and … yikes!! (hide spoiler)] And now you know why the book was close to 5 stars but not quite #sorrynotreally
Okay, so the good stuff: I enjoyed reading the build-up of the story. The build-up of the why of things. As a reader, having that anticipation of what the heck is the missing piece of information, can be just a big a high as the anticipation of what will happen next between two people’s romance journey. You get both with this book. I can’t say another thing about that because it’s a spoiler, but I wanted you guys to know it was really well done.
Decker and Tate were both a force to be reckoned with individually and as a couple. It’s glorious to read two strong alpha characters in a story. Each gave as good as they got when it came to each other and that ending was swooooooooooon . The book made me happy you guys. Read it, maybe it will make you happy also :) ...more
An "enemies-to-lovers-forbidden-office-romance" filled with steamy, sexy encounters with just a slight addition of mild angst, it's a light entertainment concluded with warm cup of sweet HEA.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book by Sloane Howell and this one just reminds me how much I love his books. I’ve never read an Alex Wolf book before (although I’m gonna look into that now) so having these two combined and writing together is brilliant, it works! It’s hot, sexy and so much fun.
Decker and Tate’s meeting was a fun one.
He’s arrogant, cocky and knows he can get whatever and whoever he wants but undern ...more
- Cocky alpha male hero
- Bold/smart heroine
- Inter-office romance
- Sexual tension out the wazoo
Look no further.
From the moment Tate Reynolds meets Decker Collins, she hate him and his brash/selfish attitude. She also wants to jump his bones. And the feeling is mutual. While they both brush off the initial run-in, they quickly learn that won't be as easy as they expected, when they discover they are working on a critical merger together.
Despite their attraction to one another, which we discover from their dual POVs, they hav ...more
Ahhhh, who doesn't love a cocky a-hole (well, in their books, I am sure they would be quite unbearable IRL!!)
This dastardly due of Wolf and Sloane have given us one heck of a sexy office romance. I mean, they say fighting is foreplay - and our lovelies Decker and Tate do love to foreplay!
Now, Decker is one of "those" guys, that you can't help but hate (I may have been calling him "Dicker" in my head), however by the end of it, you just can't help but fall for him.
This collaboration i ...more

Cocky Playboy is the story of Decker and Tate. Two high powered attorneys forced to work the big deal together.
I have to give props to these two gentlemen. First off, the alternate POV's were phenomenal! I don't know who wrote which character but the flow of the story is seamless!
Second, the chemistry of this story is off the charts hot and boy the dirty talk was on point!
Next, let's talk about Tate, ...more

This is the first book that I have read by Sloane Howell and Alex Wolf and if this book is an example of how well these two authors collaborate, then we are in for a treat.
Decker Collins is not your average playboy. He is cocky and extremely arrogant and I had a hard time liking him at first, but thankfully he grew on me.
Tate Reynolds is just the woman to stand up to him and I loved how strong and feisty she was; she ...more

5 Perfect Rom-Com Stars!!
Cocky Playboy was an amazing read. I was a little worried going into this book thinking that was going to be an alpha who falls for this meek heroine who's a pushover. So yes I was pleasantly surprise when I was proven wrong.
Tate Reynolds is a kick ass lawyer who is in Chicago to help with the merger of the law firm she works for in Dallas and the law firm in Chicago. Decker Collins is the head of the law firm in Chicago who needs this merger to go through so that he can finally have somewrong.TateStars!!Cocky ...more

Meet Decker the oldest Collins brother of a large Chicago law firm and Tate Reynolds. She is in Chicago to help ease the transition during a planned merger with The Hunter Group which will hopefully help her in her bid for partner.
Things don't exactly go to plan and both Tate and Decker find themselves in a rather awkward professional position.
He enjoys writing steamy romance but more importantly he enjoys the “research” required to produce the steamy scenes. If you like filthy-mouthed, possessive alpha heroes and steamy romance, you’ve come to the right place!
