We all have secrets.

Like the fact that I portray myself as a simple florist, living a mundane life.
Which is a far stretch from reality.

My family is rock god royalty. My father, an 80’s icon, and my siblings all celebrities in their own right. Then there’s me, Lyric Griffin, hiding in plain sight, trying to be everything I’m not.

Along comes Eddie, someone I find myself comp

Hotshot Deceiver was a story that hooked me from the very first page. I quickly fell for the characters and loved their story, happily devouring it in a single sitting.

The characters were great together, there was plenty of humour to enjoy, and I loved watching the way things developed. There was more to it than appears at first, ensuring the details keep you coming back for more. Each thing hooked me deeper, and I could not put it down.

Without a doubt, this is a great addition to the Cocky Hero

Honestly I was kind of bored with this book and I didn’t really connect with the characters. Lyric was kind of a brat and had these mood swings when Eric didn’t do exactly what she wanted. Then you have Eric who just didn’t make any sort of impression on me as a reader. He was fine but I’m pretty sure I’ll forget everything about this book by the morning. Oh and both these characters had major daddy issues. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just me but I felt that the pacing was kind of weird

Hotshot Deceiver is is part of the Cocky Hero Club which is inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward's Cocky Bastard series. This one is inspired by Cocky Bastard. You don't have to have the Cocky Bastard to enjoy this one. Lyric is a fun down to earth girl. She runs a florist store. Her Dad is a famous a musician and her mom is his manager so growing up she isn't feel that they were around enough. She has a great voice but wants nothing to do with being a famous musician. She meets Eddie, who s ...more

Lyric Griffin is such a cutie I totally loved her. She just wanted a normal life away from her famous family. She loves flowers and opened her shop to continue her dream. When Lyric and Eddie meet the sparks fly and it's so cute. These two have passion and I could easily feel them fall in love. However things change when Eddie betrays Lyric or so she thinks. When Lyric's family get's involved it tells a whole other story. I loved reading on the back story of Lyric and her family it make more sen ...more

This was my favorite this go round in the releases! KE Osborn gave Lyric and Eddie's story just the right combination of sexy, swoony and angsty. Let me just say that Eddie does an excellent grovel!

You know what I liked best about this story? The realism. Everyone has secrets. Everyone has things they don’t openly share and/or talk about. That’s just part of life. The key is to know when keeping those secrets could destroy something better than keeping those secrets would give you. Well, that was wordy! LOL Bottom line, in life, deciding who you share things with is always a gamble and always comes with consequences. Not sharing does the same. Two sides of the same coin. Our hero has a big ...more

Out of all the Cocky Hero Club books I've read so far, this is one of my favorites. Lyric really wants nothing to do with her family's "rockstar" lifestyle. Being the daughter of a rock and roll God just isn't for her. She's been hurt in the past and just wants to keep to herself away from the spotlight. Eddie comes along and bam.............she falls for him. Only he's not who he says he is and when she finds out, you know it's gonna hit the fan. I loved the way Eddie knows he messed this up an ...more

A Goat, a Parrot, a Puppy and a Sexy lier .. If that doesn’t make you smile then neither will this review. Seriously Eddie and Lyric are a perfect match with his straight lace way about him and her funny quirkier way about her BUT you can sense they are both hiding something and boy what a deceiver it is for both of them. BUT both there reasons is FAMILY which means everything to both of them.

It was love a first site and tingle at first touch for both Eddie and Lyri with a little goat names Pixy

Lyric was raised in a family of musicians and the one thing that it taught her is that she doesn’t want that lifestyle. She is content managing her flower shop and knowing that the people she surrounds herself with want her for who she is and not what she can do for them.

From the moment that Eddie enters her flower shop they are drawn to each other in spite of themselves. As the chemistry between them ignites so do the feelings between them but when Eddie’s secrets are revealed will they be dest

I am a HUGE fan of both KE Osborn and the Cocky Hero Club stories, this is a bit different than the majority of books that I have read by the author, but I REALLY enjoyed it. It had a bit of a slow start and as a reader you can tell and almost cringe knowing that there is a secret and it is going to be a doozy for both Lyric and Eddie. All in all, Hotshot Deceiver is about deceit and what lengths you will go to make up for it, I dug it and give it 4.5 outta 5 stars!

PS: Thank you to KE Osborn, Co

This was a pretty good book. While I didn’t really feel the connection between Lyric and Eddie in the first part of the book, that changed a bit in the second part. It really picked up and I enjoyed the second half much more.

I wasn’t really expecting the situation in which Eddie was being deceitful. I enjoyed the things Eddie was doing to try and win Lyric back. He was being really sweet and very determined.

Enjoyed seeing them find their happily ever after.

This was a lovely read that I pretty much inhaled in one sitting.

Lyric is a fabulous character. She wants to stay away from the lifestyle her family leads. Instead she owns a flower shop which she loves. Eric comes into her shop to buy some flowers... it’s about to change everything.

This is a heartfelt story with plenty of feels. Really liked it.

This is the 2nd book I’ve read in the Cocky Hero Club book world. It was as amazing as the other one. One of the things I like is I don’t feel like I’m missing something from the other previous characters.

Lyric grew up with her parents being in one of the most famous rock band. Lyric was home pretty much taking care of his siblings and the household. Now her siblings are following in her parents footsteps. Lyric has a beautiful voice but has no desire

Hotshot deceiver was another standalone romance in the Cocky Hero club romance world. It was a contemporary, second-chance based novel by K.E. Osborn.

I am absolutely loving these Cocky hero club novels. They all are plain and unique in their own way. In this story we meet Lyric and Eddie.

Lyric is a down-to-earth earth ,who manages her own flower shop. Her parents are sort of absentee in her life so she is used to managing stuff by her own. O

Phew! Fanning myself here because Eddie is one very ‘hot as all get out’ guy. Yep, he’s mine, just sayin’. 😆

The two lead characters are both fabulous and extremely likeable even though, yes, Eddie of course stuffs up. I have to say that Lyric’s inner strength, her determination and drive are admirable and her great sense of humour as well as her self-honesty all create such a well rounded character-what’s not to like?

Hot, sexy and very deceiving

KE Osborn has brought her brilliance to the Cocky Hero World, and it's not one to be missed. Be prepared for lots of laughs, a few tears and plenty of frustration. Lyric and Eddie's story would have to be one of the best in the Cocky Hero Club.

Lyric is such a quirky, whimsical woman, a bohemian at heart ... I loved her. The daughter of a rock god, she has made the decision that a life in her family's spotlight is not for her. Instead, she's happy running her florist s

I have loved diving into the Cocky Hero world with glimpses of old character favorites as secondary characters in all-new stories. It feels like my favorite characters are never going away and at the same time, I get to find new characters to love. However, this story? Yeah, this story is so much more than I expected. It had me from the very beginning. Considering that the story started with Valentine's Day at a floral shop, and considering I am a floral designer and know VERY well how insane th ...more

I loved how this story was written. The first half is in Lyric’s point-of-view. Lyric has a passion for flowers and owns a successful flower shop. The rest of her family is in the music industry. Growing up with parents that were always touring and never home had a huge impact on Lyric. She always craved normalcy in her life. But on this Valentine’s day, she is feeling lonely. In a mad rush to get flowers for the shop, she picks up a crazy stow-away but what is even more unusual is the sexy man ...more

This is one intriguing read from beginning to end. Lyric is a woman who grew up in a house of music royalty. As her parents were absent and constantly on tour with their band, she was responsible for raising her two siblings. This led her to want nothing to do with her family’s lifestyle. Adding insult to injury, she fell for the lead singer of a rock band and it did not go well which only increased her desire to stay out of the limelight.

Lyric Griffin's family are all in the music business with her father an 80s icon and her siblings all in their own successful music careers - all except her who is hiding in plain sight as a talented florist.
Then along comes Eddie to buy flowers - he's gorgeous if a little cocky and she is completely attracted to him as is he to her. But when a secret of his raises it's ugly head she feels betrayed and stupid. - maybe she fell for a hotshot deceiver? Because as we all know, whilst we might alway

"You, me, and a fainting goat? What could possibly go wrong?"

If you like romance with just the right amount of comedy then you will love Hotshot Deceiver. Cause I sure did. Let me introduce you to Lyric slightly eccentric boho themed beauty; her father is a rock god and her brother and sister have followed in their fathers footsteps. But Lyric never wanted that life instead she is happy owning her flower shop and keeping out of the limelight.

I love visiting this world, I love the cameo appearances of previous characters I have fallen in love with but more importantly I’m loving these new characters we are meeting as we delve further into the world of the Cocky Hero’s and their new romances.

Ok First off Pixy and Polly Parton steal the show!!! I have never read a book where I loved the interaction with animals as much as the main characters.

Ok so back to this story!! Loved it! Lyric and Eddie both held secrets and as most people know, that can ruin a relationship. These 2 came together because of flowers and a goat and taking the chance on each other was a leap of faith they both needed. These 2 had their own story and wanted to show everyone that they are not their families and wha

I want to start out by saying, you can't go wrong with KE Osborn, as all of her stories have every kind of feel to each one of them, but they're just awesome. Next up, is the fact that my favorite goat, Pixy, is involved once again trying to steal the show. Lyric is a simple woman who doesn't want anything to do with the fame and/or notoriety which comes with being the daughter of a rock god along with her famous siblings, so she spends her days as a florist when she meets Eddie.

This was my first read by KE Osborn it did not disappoint! I got my Chance, Aubrey, and Pixy fix while learning about Eddie and Lyric. Lyric just wanted a normal life unlike the one she had growing up. Growing up in the world of 80s rock, she just wants to live life in obscurity. Is that too much to ask. Enter Eddie. There is instant chemistry, but both of these characters had secrets they kept close to their hearts. Will their secrets pull them together or push them apart? I'll leave that for y ...more

The truth is... that the truth always comes out. GAH! Eddie & Lyric's story will have you all up in your feels 💙 From beginning to end I was completely invested in these two and their story.. Lyric likes her life, away from the spotlight that is her rock star family & is simply happy doing what she loves to do. Meeting Eddie was a chance meeting... but their connection is unavoidable. But when Eddie's secrets come out... Can she forgive him?
