He was someone who belonged on the cover of Sports Illustrated instead of in my small beach town.

A sexy, cocky Australian soccer star named Finn was the last person I expected to be living with for two weeks.

He showed up at my brother’s house on his wedding night, hot, drunk, and very much not married. Next thing I knew, we were roommates, spending nights watching TV and

I'm a huge fan of Rebecca Jenshak's sports romance books so no one is more bummed than me that I didn't love this one. I enjoyed the first half to give it at least a 3, but the drama towards the end really brought down the enjoyment for me. On to the next...

Is thos suppose to have a cocky hero? Well I can not find that Finn is a cocky hero. Instead he is sweet, soft, teddy bear.

I do like Miss Jenshak writting style in this story. She is a talented NA romance writer. Especially with sport romance. Jilted Jock is OK read for me. I want to see more angst/ drama with the story.

Overall this is OK read for me.

Read over my past reviews and you will see that I’m a huge fan of Rebecca Jenshak; in fact, I would go so far as to say she is one of my absolute favourite authors. She writes sports romance so brilliantly, so I was super excited to find out she would be writing this story for the CHC world.
From page one, I was hooked. JILTED JOCK is different to anything Rebecca has written before in the sense it’s slightly more “adult” and is hot AF!!! Everything about it was absolute perfection and i became

I signed up to review this before the blurb was release just because I have a massive fan girl crush on Rebecca Jenshak’s writing. And I was super excited to get my hands on any of her words that I could. But I have to be honest and say that when I read the blurb I was reluctant. And if I had read the blurb first I probably wouldn’t have jumped on this quite as quickly. I would have one clicked it, but I would have been selective when I was brave enough to jump in.

All that said, the things I wa
He kissed me so tenderly and softly, but it felt like the force of a thousand tons slammed into me. I forgot to breathe or think or be. I was soul and lips alone and they’d both been claimed by Finn.

I can always count on Rebecca Jenshak to deliver a sweet romance with broken but fierce characters. Finn is probably one of the sweetest heroes I've read about in a long time, and I loved how he was willing to go all out to prove his love to Adele. Adele has been through some shit--a victim of ra

Rebecca Jenshak has become one of my go to writers for light, fun, and steamy. I genuinely enjoy her writing. She writes fun and interesting characters, and I love her plot lines.

The audiobook was a great listen. I enjoyed both narrators voice and pacing, and they complimented each other well.

Definitely worth a listen and read when it comes out in other forms.

Admittedly Cocky Bastard is one of the few Vi Keeland/Penelope Ward books that I haven't read. Still, I picked this book up because I have become a big Rebecca Jenshak fan, it was another sports romance (my ultimate Kindle crack), and I've been so curious about these Cocky Hero books - it seemed like the perfect opportunity to check one out.

I was so impressed. I swear if I didn't know I was reading a Rebecca Jenshak book, I'd have sworn this was written by Vi/Penelope themselves! Even not having
Jilted Jock was pretty easy to fly through. In it, you will meet Finn and Adele. They were definitely all kinds of cute and a kitten most definitely brought them together. It kind of sounds like a hallmark or lifetime movie, right?

Well, Adele is dating someone when she meets Finn. They know each other because of her brother Chance. It didn't take long for Mr. Wrong to walk out of Adele's life. I was all kinds of happy because it was Finn's turn to step in. They had so much chemistry and again,

After so many instalove stories, it was quite refreshing to read about a slow burn. Well, not too slow, but at least it took time for the characters to consume their relationship. I really enjoyed how it builds and develops. There’s a lot of intimacy, and almost no lust; it’s cute and heartwarming. But when it’s hot, it’s scorching.

Addiction viewed through the ex-addict’s feelings and thoughts, and through the people who have to navigate around it, was an interesting perspective, and unusual. It

I just LOVED Adele and Finn! This was a delicious, sexy slow burn romance between Adele (sister of Chance, from Cocky Bastard) and Australian Soccer Star, Finn. Finn had my heart right from the beginning. The book begins with him being left at the altar on his wedding day and my heart broke for him immediately. Adele is in a relationship with another man so when Adele and Finn meet their connection was one of friendship at first and I just loved the conversation and banter be

Rebecca Jenshak has done it again. She’s written another romance where you can’t help but fall deeper into the story. Even more, as I have done with her other books, I picked up Jilted Jock and could not put it down. The struggles of her hero and heroine, Finn and Adele, feel real, as one tries to find a new normal after being spurned and the other tries to maintain her normal when she feels compelled to shake up her life. Now, if you haven’t read Vi Keeland and Pen

What a good addition to the Cocky Hero World. From the moment the story started, Finn had me hooked. Jilted at the altar on his wedding day, Finn is in a daze, he is dealing as best as he can with the help of his friend, Chance(from the original Cocky Bastard). This is where Adele, Chance's sister and she offers him a place to crash for few weeks. Adele lives her life in a certain bubble. She has a past and she has overcome alot, so being in a safe, mundane, trusting relationship is what she nee ...more

Jilted Jock was a very entertaining sports romance. It’s engaging storyline had the right amount of drama to keep me engaged. I can always count on Rebecca Jenshak to deliver a sweet romance with imperfectly flawed characters.

Adele and Finn are both strong characters individually, but perfect when they were put together. They complemented each other so perfectly. I truly enjoyed reading the connection that Adele and Finn had.

Jilted Jock was an intense slow burn, sexual tension fueled, emotional

This is another great addition to the Cocky Hero Club series. I am a sucker for a sports romance and I loved this one. Finn and Adele were so good together. Great chemistry between them. Their story pulled me in from page one and didn’t let go until I was finished. Highly recommend.

I read an early review copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

i really enjoyed the first half but the drama in the seond half didn't make any sense, no real explaination either and that was really disappointing

God! Loved this story so much!

"Right now it felt like he saw me in a way I hadn't been seen in years."

Adele Bateman meets Finn McCash on the day when he is jilted at the altar. Unwilling to go home, when he and his cat can't find a hotel to stay at, Adele impulsively offers him the spare bedroom in her apartment for two weeks. He is everything that she has avoided for years, playing it safe with her straitlaced, by-the-book, long-distance boyfriend. After a rocky few days, they start getting int

Finn and Adele shouldn’t have met. Finn was supposed to be on his honeymoon instead of stumbling into Aubrey and Chance’s house drunk on the night of wedding. But Adele was babysitting CJ when Aubrey brought him stumbling into the house. But things don’t always go as planned and one thing led to another and Finn ends up staying with Adele. It started with a truce of sorts, then a friendship began and the chemistry was there whether it was accepted or not. But Adele has a past that keeps her shyi ...more

I think this is more of "It's me, not the book" but I just didn't like it as much as I wanted to.

The beginning was really good: our male lead Finn is on his wedding day ready to marry the girl of his dreams, only to be left at the alter. Our heroine, Adele (Chance's sister!) Is a recovering addict with a truly heartbreaking past who is in a boring yet stable relationship, offers to let Finn stay with her until he can find a new place since his ex-fiance and his ex-best friend will now be living

After drowning his pain in alcohol, he winds up at his friend’s Chase’s home only Chase isn’t there, but his sister Adele is.

Jilted Jock was another great addition to the Cocky Hero Club. Although I enjoyed it, it’s one of those books where my feelings were mixed. There were points when I thought I would be giving a four-star rating, but, in the end, I couldn’t quite bring myself to round it up. In the end, this one is a rounded down three-point-five-star read.

Although I really enjoyed this one, I never really felt the emotional connection between the characters. The reason for this is simple, and it’s one of my peeve

Chance and Aubrey from cocky bastard are one of my favorite couples so to see a (another) story for Chance‘s sister Adele is very much appreciated.

This story features a very hot, young, aussie soccer player (Finn) who get‘s left by the alter by his fiancé. Adele and a very drunk Finn meet eachother for the first time ar Chance‘s place hours after the almost wedding. Since Finn was living with his ex he needed a place to stay and Adele invited him to stay with her. And that‘s the beginning of the

Jenshak steps out her comfort zone in hopes run off with your heart. Jilted Jock is everything that I have come to expect from a Rebecca Jenshak novel. Sexy, sassy, sweet and heartaching collide to become an irresistible romance.

Finn can be a patient man, “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed I’m going to miss an opportunity to have *** in the changing room of various Los Angeles stores, but I’ll be alright. Tonight, though, you’re mine.” I liked this book, I loved Finn

Everyone needs a Finn - loved him! This was a bit different as it wasn't the woman getting stood up but the man - but she did him a favour! He was alpha and was a great guy. Adele was with someone so wrong for her, everyone could see it but her. She had been through a lot a felt she needed 'safe' but what she needed was Finn. He did make a mistake and he did beat himself up over it but Adele took the time to find herself and we were given a great HEA and

I love Rebecca Jenshaks books and there hasnt been one yet that I havent devoured. And Jilted Jock was the exact same!

Finn was a brilliant leading man, he knew what he wanted and wasnt afraid to go after it. Adele was rightly cautious but there was no doubt about her love for Finn.

Rebecca is a fantastic writer of sports romance and this slow burn is amazing giving you a great insight into everyone especially if you are new to the cocky hero world. This is my first jump into this world and it definitely makes you want more action.

Finn and Adele were the unexpected duo. The two people in the wildest of circumstances who shouldnt have met but when a series of events all line up and fate comes hand in hand - the least expected of all things can happen.
