Wow! This story has great chemistry in Cole and Casper and the story of how they meet just sucked me in. It's not an easy road, especially because there is a twist that I didn't see coming and had my head reeling. I enjoyed this so much. ...more

HOLY BANANAS! I’ve been outwitted! Shenanigans!

You guys, this story was all kinds of good! These two had spark, they bantered well together, the story flowed well and it read realistically and very relatable. None of it was even remotely out of the realm of possibility. This is what I liked best! But listen, (lol) this plot point comes at us and BAM .. I mean, WELL PLAYED April Canavan! This is how you make me happy! You write a story that keeps me invested and rolling thru it not necessarily kn

5 Star Review Cocky Corporal (Cocky Hero Club) by April Canavan
Cocky Corporal is part of The Cocky Hero Club inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. Having loved that book, I was intrigued by the blurb and could not wait to read and review, particularly since April Canavan is a a relatively new author to me.

I was hooked on the story that Ms. Canavan wove from the first to the last chapter. I really loved the main characters of Cole Morgan and Casper Townsend. My heart just about broke for Casp

I really enjoyed this book so much. Casper and Cole wonderfully completed each other. Even though they were only going to be in the same area for a short time, they formed a connection that wouldn’t let go.

Their buildup was not rushed and I liked that. Cole was there to help Casper through the aftermath of losing her sister and having to pack up her house. He was dealing with his own stressors but didn’t want to tell anyone.

There was a little bit of a twist that I didn’t see coming right away

This was a new to me author and one I'll definitely be reading more from.
Wow what a book.
With lovable characters and plot, you won't be able to put it down once you start.
I was quite proud of myself, thinking I had things figured out quite early on. Boy was I wrong!! Did not see that twist coming. Hope we get a follow up, as would love to know the reasons why, talk about madness.
Definitely a great addition to the Cocky World and throughly reccomend.

Casper and Cole's story was magnificent! I felt so many emotions throughout the book. Grief, anger, hope, happiness, despair and shock at some surprising twists. This was another well written book in the Cocky Hero Club world. ...more

I gotta say, 5 stars just doesn't do this book deserves so many more, and April is an EVIL GENIUS!!!! What she did with this story was magical, and she makes you feel all the feelings!! Casper goes to New York to settle things for her sister who she lost in a tragic accident, what makes it even worse, it's like she's lost a part of herself because Cassie was her twin. She's rushing to get to her when she gets to the hospital and doesn't realize she's parked in the wrong place. Next ...more

This story will have you all in your feelings. It has passion, lust, drama, and heartache. It also have survival and strength of the strongest people. Casper never thought she would be standing in her sisters apartment without her. Her heartache is like no other being a twin and losing that one person you have been connected to since being conceived. But here she is trying to pack up her sisters life and move on as best as she can. When she comes face-to-face with a handsome man that makes her f ...more

This year, I've read numerous Cocky Hero Club books. And Cocky Corporal certainly takes a top place. It is probably the one book where Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward's characters have a recurring role throughout the book. Graham and Soraya feel exactly like the characters written in Stuck-Up Suit, and yet Cocky Corporal has the April Canavan stamp. It's the best of both worlds.

The story just pulls you in with its magnetic main characters-Cole Morgan and Casper Townsend-and the mindblowing plot twi

Cocky Corporal my first book from April Canavan, not sure why, because I devoured it. Family was the name of the game in this book and those connections made everything that much more relatable. Plus getting a heaping dose of Soraya and Graham was a real delight.

I was rooting for Casper from the first page. I liked her kindness and compassion. Her tender heart that was broken but wouldn't be defeated. And how she couldn't get the handsome Cole out of her mind. And Cole was in the same boat. Too

She never imagined that life could get better after the devastating loss of her twin sister but here she was in court pleading to a judge to forgive her for parking illegally in ambulance parking the night it happened. Everything was falling apart. Just when she thought I can't take anymore, he showed up with his piercing green eyes, godlike physique and a cocky attitude that both annoyed her beyond measure while simultaneously igniting a fire of yearning in every bit of her core.

I have read quite a few of the books in this series and this one is another enjoyable addition with the added benefit of containing Graham and Soraya who readers met in Stuck-Up Suit. Cole is back in town because of an accident he suffered which leaves him with amnesia and unfit for duty. Casper is in town to deal with her sister’s belongings after her untimely death. As Cole and Casper do not meet under ideal circumstances, each one is a support for the other as he helps her deal with

Sexy, fun, and emotional.
I like these characters Cole and his brothers have a great relationship. I love their Grandmother. She tells each of her Grand kids they are her favorite. She is a hoot!
I like Graham and Soraya. They like to tease each other. You can tell their love is strong.
It is emotional to see Casper deal with the loss of her twin sister. She has the support of her family and Cole.
I like the scenes in the war zone. It is amazing that the characters come together.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, steam, secrets, pain, and heartbreak.

This is Casper and Cole's story. These two have a ton of chemistry and blend well together. But they only have 30 days together. She needs to get back home, and he needs to get back to work but a head injury is preventing that. He has turned into a peeping tom for his neighbor that is hot and very accident prone. But these two are keeping secrets and when they come out what is going to happen to

Casper & Cole were a couple I enjoyed reading about. I loved the way that April Canavan wrote this story. Every single time I thought I knew how everything was going - and was going to turn out - she flipped all my notions on their heads and out the window. She has a new fan!

With awesome secondary characters, great banter and heartfelt moments, this book is one that I wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend. I also look forward to the stories of all the singles introduced in this book *wink*

Roller coaster feelings. Through out the book I climbed one emotion and slid down the next. Happy and sad. Love and anger. Grieving and rejoicing. Casper goes to pack up her deceased twin's home and the sense of loss comes straight out of the book. From there it is chance meetings, unexpected friendships, and maybe a betrayal by the hero of the story? Enter the sister's boyfriend. Plot twist, ingenious character reveals and happily ever after brought the book to a close after a couple chapters o ...more

Brilliant Just Brilliant this is a must read for 2021! 'Cocky Corporal' has one of the best story lines I have read in ages. Page after page I just fell more in love with this book. Cole and Caspers story is an emotional one and on more than one occasion I was forced to reach for the tissues as this story of love, tragedy, lies and betrayal unfolded. Bravo April Canavan Bravo!

Cole sure is cocky but adorable as well ! Love how you read about soraya and graham as well. This was a bit of a heartbreaking story, but also full of hope. At the end I was getting all misty eyed : you will know when you read it. There was a couple of twists in the book I did see one of them coming, I put two and two together but the other one.... no way wasn’t expecting that !
Great book I would have loved though a bit more of an epilogue... more into the future.

A wonderful emotionally beautiful story by April who was a new author to me. Casper and Cole meet during a time when they are both going through loss and trauma and with a instant connection they take us through an emotional journey. I was hooked from the start and I couldn’t put it down. This book is part of The Cocky Hero Club but can be read as a standalone. I received this book as an arc for my honest opinion.

Wow!!! I think I'm going to have to go back and read this one again. The story pulled me in right away and didn't let go. Usually new authors take awhile for me to warm up too, but Ms. Canavan is a gifted author who's books I will be looking up. Cole and Casper go through a journey to get their HEA and I never saw that twist coming. For me, that's the sign of an author who knows what she/he is doing. For sure this is going in my re-read pile!!! ...more

I love April Canavan’s stories! And this one is so good! She definitely knows how to suck you into a story and keep you there!

This is Casper and Cole’s story, with a lot of Graham and Soraya to make you smile. This is an emotional roller coaster and I’m here for it. It will make you feel at the feelings.

There is a bit of everything in this story, some drama, some suspense and just the right amount of steam, plus the opportunity for more stories from other characters in the book. Do not miss out

Excellent book!

Cole and Casper. He knew she was special when he first saw her in traffic court. He was there because his cousin wanted the goods on his wife, suspecting she’d gotten another ticket. Said wife claimed she was there to lend moral support to her friend. Said friend looked at her like “what the hell, I don’t know you”. Then friend is called before the judge and starts explaining why she was parked in the emergency vehicle spot at the ER. She was trying to reach her sister in time, bu

Casper & Cole....
I loved their story. From the start Cole was immediately drawn to Casper. I thought that their story was interesting and fun. From how they meet to how well the connect. This was an amazing story and I can't wait to read more from the author.
