Unfortunately, this story did not work for me overall. There are a lot of plot points happening in this story that overwhelmed me as a reader. Not that they did not make sense per say but they just made the story overwhelming, with too much conflict and angst. UGH I just had to erase three sentences of explaining this because they give away the story! I don’t want to do that because this could very well be a me thing. Hence why I am middle of the road with my rating. There’s a sentimentality tha ...more

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I didn't really know what to expect. This book is part if the cocky hero series and I really enjoyed reading it. This has sweet romance, suspense, twists, love, laughs and hope and its a fabulous read that I defiantly recommend reading.

Autumn has had enough of things and wanted a change in her life and this is where she has a great idea. Autumn goes to spend time away in Australia and this is where she first sets her eyes on Brett but sh

Maybe ghosting this series for a while helped me realize that not every book is a gem? Or maybe it's because I had a crap ton of meetings today.. and I was just in a mood.

Cocky Carpenter was an okay read. In it, you will meet Autumn and Brett. In the beginning, I felt bad for Autumn. Why? Well, she left her home and went to Australia for a year. A rash and sudden decision.. but not the reason as to why I felt sad. Nope, her ex-husband and a stalker did.

That being said, when she ended up meeting

4 Star Review Cocky Carpenter by Maggie Mundy
What I love about these collections is that a variety authors are involved. Australian author Maggie Mundy is new to me and I have no idea why that is. This is Autumn and Brett’s story set in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia. I think being an Australian and very familiar with the setting added an extra layer of enjoyment t the story.
Both Autumn and Brett have baggage from their pasts and although they have dealt with it, they do not trust

Brett meets Dr Autumn Blake after she moves to Australia from England. Both find it easy to get to know each other; their rapport is automatic and their physical attraction is supercharged. Both have baggage but have moved on with their lives and although their pasts do cause problems they forge a really fabulous relationship.

I liked both of the lead characters-a lot, they are very different yet have similarities too. Autumn has trouble believing in love, which is understandable, and has suffere

“Cocky Carpenter” takes place in the Blue Mountains, a region west of Sydney, Australia. Known for its dramatic scenery, waterfalls and eucalyptus forests, it was the perfect place for Autumn to escape her past and start over. I loved experiencing Australia through her eyes, and everywhere she visited seemed magical and I felt as if I was there with her.

Autumn never expected to meet someone as special as Brett. She liked his honesty, his personality and of course, his dog Bluey. Brett was funny

Doctor Autumn Blake has an ex-husband and a stalker to escape, so a year working in Australia sounds like a great idea considering the cold English climate. It will be great to have a year to get her head together and so no romantic entanglements seem to be the best policy too. Next door neighbour Trend has lived a love then an leave them mentality for years until he sets eyes on Autumn Blake next door. She might just be the one to break through the tough layer he surrounds himself with. Is the ...more

Dr. Autumn Blake is in town for 6 months to heal those that need it and to have a break of sort. What she doesn't expect is the neighbor and her landlord. Brett is cocky and tough but loves with his whole heart. He try's to do the right thing all the time and of course has family drama like no other. When these two meet you can tell something special is going to happen between them. What I love is Brett likes Autumn no matter what he doesn't treat her like she has a disability no he treats her l ...more

I really enjoyed Cocky Carpenter, and loved Autumn and Brett. There was some instant chemistry and attraction between them and that's something neither of them were looking for. Autumn is in Australia to work and to leave her problems in the UK behind, Brett has his own issues and they end up actually helping each other as they spend more time together. They help each other with their trust issues, and Brett helps Autumn with her confidence. They are having a great time with each other and then ...more

This author is new to me and was a pleasant surprise. This was a good addition to the Cocky Hero World. There were a few times that I wished for more fluidity in the story but for the most part, this was a very solid story. There were a couple of parts that had me scratching my head as to why they were part of the story, and that mainly being Jonathan. I appreciate that the author brought a disability into the story for the heroine, Autumn. I liked even more than Brett made sure that Autumn wasn ...more

Enjoyable and fun
This is the first book I've read by this author. I really enjoyed the story of Brett and Autumn. I laughed often throughout this book. They were both dealing with painful pasts and together they helped each other move forward. The journey they took together to get to that point was filled with fun adventures they took. A must read.
Aug 01, 2020 rated it it was amazing
Brett and Autumn are kindred spirits. They've both been hurt in the past and are leery to get too close. Her being a doctor and him being a carpenter seems to also be a divide. However, they can't help but fall in love with one another and their chemistry together is off the charts hot! What happens when their pasts come into their present? Can they stay strong together or will they be pushed apart? This is another greatly penned book within the Cocky Hero Club world and I highly recommend readi ...more

Very good. Loved the strong characters. I loved how they were both strong without being overwhelming. Such a good book.

Brett's first meeting with Autumn had him showing her his junk. No not like that...she was the doctor standing in for his usual doctor. He never got the beautiful Brit out of his mind then next thing you know, he's rescuing his new tenant from a fall in the tub, and guess who it is...yep, his beautiful Brit. But things won't be all lighthearted as their first two encounters, because both of them have some demons. She's got a past and so does he. Let's just hope he can

The author has written a note to her readers about this book that you will need to pay attention to.

Autumn may have physical challenges but that doesn’t stop her from what she loves. She’s come to realize that she needs to spread her wings. Brett may be cocky but at least he cares about his health. And he’s proud about the work he does. He’s also opened his heart to possibilities.

This is a book where you will laugh with the characters as well as at them. They also both seem to like the outdoor

Cocky Carpenter will capture your heart! It was sweet and uplifting and just leaves you with a happy feeling after reading it! I am not a huge fan of 3rd person and was a little bummed to see that in the beginning, but the author had a way of writing that did not make me feel as if I was missing out on anything!

This is a relatively quick read but will have you adoring the characters and the story was just hands down so full of heart and humor. I totally recommend checking this book out if you en

Autumn is a doctor who has recently relocated to Australia for a one year contract to put some distance between her and a few situations that were going on in her life. Her first meeting with Brett was humorous when he was her patient but when she finds out he is her landlord it is only a matter of time before their relationship becomes personal.

Brett has a past of his own that he is dealing with. He is the perfect mix of sweet and sexy and appreciates Autumn just the way she is. What starts out

Autumn packs up her life and moves from the UK to Australia for a year. She needs time to regroup and get her life back on track. A year as a small town doctor sounds just like what she needs. Brett meets his new tenant under not so normal circumstances. Can a year of friends with benefits satisfy them or will it leave them wanting more?

The Cocky Hero Club has brought me to yet another new author and I'm excited to check out more of her work. Maggie Mundy has created two characters that have had

Autumn and Brett connect when she moves to Australia for a year to work as a doctor there.

There's suspense, romance, and two people who find each other when they aren't expecting it. I really liked that the book was set in Australia. It is someplace I have never been, but would love to visit and I haven't read many books set there.

Overall a nice first read for me from this author!

Thank you to the author for providing an ARC for an honest review.

This is a new author to me and I absolutely love her writing!! There is a perfect amount of banter, drama, suspense and chemistry in the story. After Autumn moves to Australia her encounters with Brett are absolutely hilarious!! I had tears in my eyes from the witty banter. As a reader I have never been to Australia but the imagery the author uses I felt like I was actually at the places in the story. Great addition to the Cocky Hero series!!

Almost 3 stars

Why? First thing first, a lot of 3rd person narration. In my opinion that choice always end by affecting the credibility of the story.
But the plot still good. Slow burn and witty, sometime funny too, if you see how they met.
And met shortly after that encounter again.
Sometimes the connection between Autumn and Brett is oscillating from "static" moments to steamy ones, that's why I had some difficulty to instantly connect with them as a couple.
Beside the love story there's the backg

I’m giving this book 3.5 stars. Rounding up to 4 stars since the book got a lot better by the end.

I honestly didn’t really feel a connection between Brett and Autumn. I think this book could have hooked me sooner if the drama and issues with Autumn’s stalker and the girl from Brett’s past had shown up sooner in the book. That is when I really got invested in the story.

I wish the relationship between Brett and Autumn had evolved a little more before they added the “benefits” portion to their fr

This is another hit from the Cocky Hero series of books.
Autumn Blake ,a doctor who is running from her stalker ex-husband “ runs” to Australia for six months to hide from him.
Brett who ends up being her neighbor and landlord ...
This is a huge suspense filled story.
I really enjoyed the instant, burning chemistry between Brett and Autumn.

I enjoyed reading this book book by Maggie Mundy who was a new author to me. This sweet love story of two people who have had difficulties in life come together in a wonderful part of Australia. It has some twists and turns that keep you hooked. 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.
Louise - romance.movies.and.books
What an amazing book. I believe that this is the first time reading a book by this author.

As an Aussie I enjoyed reading about places in this book that I have visited as it bought back some wonderful family memories.

This book has the perfect amount of banter, friendship, chemistry, drama (stalking / kidnapping) and love.

The author takes you on a wonderful journey to find true happiness for Brett and Dr Autumn Blake.

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book for an honest review.
