Like most guys I have a type— she wasn’t mine.

Not at all.

The angelic beauty on the dance floor has innocence written all over her. But I can’t stay away. And when she runs from me, leaving me wanting more, I can’t get her out of my head.

Turns out finding her won’t be too hard. My mystery virgin is the new marketing assistant for the Rough Riders Football team. And the own

What happens when you have lead such a sheltered life that you are now in your early twenties and still a virgin about to embark into the real world of working and making a living? Well, you'd want to rid yourself of that pesky "V" card, right?!?! Well, that's what Brenna would like to do anyway so she sets out to do just that but then she meets Connor and OH BOY, do things get interesting from there!

Wowzer, this was one steamy story but at the same time it had depth. This is the fourth book in the Rough Riders series but it is a standalone and it works perfectly that way. 

I really liked Brenna and while I was not particularly fond of Connor initially, he quickly grew on me. Their first encounter didn't go as planned but that is not it for these two. I do not want to give any spoilers so all I will say is that things develop between these two despite their obstacles.

Cocky Player is book 4 in the Rough Riders series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

The story introduces you to Brenna and Conner. Completely opposite in personalities, these two really know how to burn up the pages with their undeniable, red-hot chemistry and fiery passion. Although their initial attraction brings them together, without either of them knowing who the other is, it’s the sweet, emotional, and compassionate connection they share throughout the story that truly encompass

Title: Cocky Player (Rough Riders #4)
Author: Stacey Lynn

I forgot ok! I forgot how good Stacey Lynn's books are.
I couldn't put this book down.
I feel like writing this entire review in CAPS but I'm going to restrain myself from doing that but I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs because I devoured this book!

You know my love for sports romance and male protagonists that epitomise the true meaning of 'alpha male'..Cocky Player delivered that to the point!
This book was SOOO HOTTTTT!

I didn't like this one as much as book 2

I was really caught up in Cocky Player and it didn't take me long to know that I wasn't putting this book down until I got to the end. I was interested in the characters, invested in the story and
loved the way everything came together. And, believe me, there is so much more to this story than what the blurb gives you.

Connor may have come off as the Cocky Player in the beginning but, as the story progresses, you see who he truly is. You will love him as you learn his story, see his transformatio

The first book by the author, and it won't be last. I wasn't sure what to expect going into this, I have learned to always go into a new authors books open-minded and I did with this. I mean the title gives it away a little but still, I was taken by surprise.

Although, this is in a series it can be read as a total standalone...

Where to begin? Well firstly, make sure you have a bucket of ice close by so you cool yourself off. Because holy shit this was pretty damn hot!!

This is the first Stacey Lynn book I've read and I can't begin to express how much I loved this book. I was blown away by the storyline, the naughty bits, and how well crafted it was. 

Connor was the right amount of cocky, detached jock that grew at the right emotional speed and displayed the perfect vulnerability that made him ultra irresistible.

Brenna and Connor were a lot of fun.

And, wow, did you feel their connection. It was tangible and the idea that she wanted him to be her first, it made sense as that's not chemistry you want to deny.

I loved the way the author built the chemistry until there was a connection between them that was more than just physical.

For a romance with one of the characters not having any sexual experience to work, you have to believe it's about more than a check-mark on a to do list and this one delivers.

It’s time to get up close and personal with The Rough Riders very own Connor, he’s one cocky, sexy, hot jock who finds himself taking the owner of the teams daughter for a walk on the wild side, with both of them losing something in the process her, her virginity, him, his heart.

The pairs relationship was entertaining to watch unfold as they both come out of their shells and love blossoms for them.

Cocky Player’s a five star must read it can be read as standalone but I guarantee if you haven’t re

This book landed in my lap accidentally and boy am I glad it did. Conor is THE about funny, kind, swoon worthy and sexy all wrapped in one big package. I absolutely loved him.
I really liked Brenna. Despite being inexperienced their chemistry is off the charts. These two made me laugh, cry and swoon so hard it is ridiculus.

Seriously if you're looking for a swoon worthy hero with a inocent but knows what she wants heroine this book is just for you.

I highly recommend this book!!!

Cocky Player is PURE sports romance → GOLD.

Stacey Lynn has crafted an intense and sizzling off-limits romance between a red-hot, cocky football player and a not-so-typical virgin.

Cocky Player has the right amount of angst, swoon and laugh out loud moments. It's emotionally charged with genuine and well-rounded characters. I loved being back with the Rough Riders crew.

This is your next must read, sports romance!

"This girl already had me thinking of tomorrow. Which meant she wasn’t only beautiful, but dangerous."

He is betting all his chips on a dangerous and alluring game. And that can cost his heart.

Connor Quinten is focused on renewing his contract with the Rough Riders and helping his team reach the Super Bowl. There is no room for romance in his life. But all his resolutions go into space as he sees that angel dressed in white on the dance floor.

COCKY PLAYER by Stacey Lynn is book 4 in the Rough Riders series. This is Brenna and Connor's story.
This is a unique romance for the heroine- Brenna has some issues that we get clued into early. She doesn't want to be treated differently and wants to be normal. Brenna is the football team's owner and she joins the company in marketing, but before she begins she suddenly decides to lose her virginity. Connor sees Brenna at a bar and he doesn't have any clue who she is but he is immediately captiv

Oh my!
Brenna and Connor are great characters! I love them both so much!

So this story starts off with Brenna wanting to lose her virginity. She feels sparks when she sees Connor across the way. He does as well. Things get all hot and heavy until Connor realizes she’s a virgin.
They see each other again very soon - her dad is his boss! Yikes!
And so their story really begins. Or maybe it really begins when he sees her again. I don’t know!
Such a great story!!!

Connor is a bad boy player on and off the field. He meets Brenna and she's not his type as she's too innocent. Brenna happens to be the owner of the team's daughter and marketing specialist. She wants to lose her virginity and Connor is more than willing to help her. A night turns into all kinds of unexpected chaos for them. A sexy, dirty talking male and a read with plenty of steam. ...more

My first book from Stacey Lynn and I absolutely loved it! As cocky and arrogant as Connor is, I liked how he has opened up and fighting for Brenna. Brenna is a girl who has a traumatic past which left her to not open up to people so easily aside from her family and her BFF Gina. I simply adore Gina. This girl is a BFF every girl wish for. She stand by Brenna and is as protective as her family are. I’m glad that Brenna is willing to take the chance to fight her fear with Connor.

Okay. Confession. This is only the second book I’ve read of Stacey Lynn’s with the first book being the 3rd book of her Rough Riders series of standalones, Wicked Player. I know with that book I appreciated the storyline of the stoic Gage and his need to release pain along with Elizabeth’s need to use pain to move her out of her head. On some level, I connected with them. I know that I downloaded the first two books in this series, but I haven’t had an opportunity to re

So I actually went and re-reading book 1 immediately after finishing this book.
So obviously I liked it - I think it's my second favorite.

(I REALLY liked book 1.)

I think my issue was the beginning? One of the biggest - there was a good bit of eye rolling and had I not enjoyed the books in the series/this author already I might've DNF'd it.
