***BLOG TOUR & REVIEW*** Cocky by JC Valentine


by J.C. Valentine Spartan Riders MC, #5 Publication Date: July 30, 2018 Cover Credits: Sara Eirew Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, MC Romance, Biker, Standalone



USA Today and International and bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC…

They’ve been through hell and back and have the scars to prove it.

Kade “Moose” Hunter doesn’t tolerate drama. He’s cocky, unapologetic, and all about the quiet side of life.

That’s why Mouse fits him so well.

Angel “Mouse” Grace isn’t like the other women hanging around the club. She’s sweet and gentle, and when Moose gets her engines revving, her passion burns bright. She’s the yin to his yang, and Moose is almost certain she’s the one, but life is never that easy for a Spartan.

The catch? Their town is falling apart.

A cesspool of crime and addiction, the Spartans face yet another challenge: confront crime lord Manuel Contreras and risk war, or worse, death. When Angel’s kid sister rolls into town and takes a shine to the Spartan’s mortal enemy, Moose is torn between doing what’s best for his family…and what’s best for his love life.

Will he be able to strike a balance, or lose everyone he cares about in the process?

*NOTE* COCKY can be read as a STANDALONE! Although a part of the Spartan Riders series, COCKY features a brand new couple, therefore, can be read as a standalone!



“What are you doing over there anyway?” Country asked Moose. “You’ve been all contemplative looking since that little girl walked out of here earlier. You got the feels or somethin’?”

Moose curled his lip and shifted to reach his phone tucked in his butt pocket. “Ain’t no feels involved, unless you’re talkin’ about the physical kind.” He waggled his eyebrows. “Then I got a whole lotta ‘em, if you know what I mean.” 

Country glanced around at the rest of the brothers, including them in the conversation. “Moose has been sporting some serious wood lately. I can’t even walk into a room without feeling violated.” 

“Gotta be the girl, then,” Taco said, then tipped his head back to drink his beer, his playful gaze still set on Moose. 

Moose raised his hand and slowly lifted his middle finger. “Ya’ll just mind your business. What I do or don’t do with my dick is private.” 

“Not when it’s waving hello to everyone,” Quick chimed in, then plucked a ball into one of the plastic cups. 

“No fuckin’ way!” Country shouted. “I swear, you’re cheating! No one drinks as much as you have tonight and keeps winning.” 

Quick shrugged. “Don’t hate the player. Hate the game. Now shut your yap and drink up, brother.” 

Grumbling, Country got down to it. 

Moose checked the time on his phone. It was well after midnight, and he was remembering how he’d told Mouse he’d be by later. It was probably well past “later” in her book, but he was just getting the night started. 

He considered shooting off a quick text, maybe calling her to tell her to get ready for him, but then he figured why bother? If she wanted him like he thought she did, then she should be ready for him any hour of the day or night. 

“Any of you bastards feel like driving me somewhere?”

“Business or pleasure?” Taco asked. 

“Definitely pleasure.” 

Taco vacated his fold-out chair as Moose lumbered to his feet. Slinging on his leather jacket, Taco jerked his head to the side. “I gotta head home anyway. I’ll give ya a lift.” 

“Aw, you guys are seriously ditching us? The night is still young!” Country shouted.

Moose ignored the uttered complaints and fell into step behind Taco as they headed for the side door. “You assholes can crash inside if you need to. But ya’ll better make sure to clean this shit up before you leave.” 

“Yes, Mommy,” he heard as he stepped out into the night. He didn’t need to look back to know what jerk-off had said it. The southern accent tipped him off just fine.


Well... i'm extremely sad. End of the series! *sob* i wanted a book for every character in here! 

I can say with a heavy heart that although it's the end this has been an incredible series.

This book concentrates mostly on Moose and Mouse aka Kade and Angel.

Kade loves the feelings Angel gives him but he's reluctant to settle down. He's not sure he wants anything permanent but he knows for now Angel is what he wants. Things are still up in the air with the club. After the demise of Cruize someone else popped up in her place. Manuel Contreras. He's unknown to the Spartans but they know he's bad news. The Spartans are wondering if they'll ever have peace again.

Angel is happy with her arrangement with Kade. She knows it's casual and she's quite content to leave it like that. After the way her parents were she never wants to get controlled by a man. She had to bring her sister up and grew up pretty quick. But the more time she spends with Kade the more he crumbles her walls. 

Can they overcome their commitment issues? And can the Spartans survive a brother sleeping with enemy and a baby sister thrown in the mix? 

I loved Kade and Angel. They were so perfect for each other even though they were opposites. I loved how Kade knew when to back off even though his feelings were hurt sometimes in doing so. And Angel had absolutely no chance of saying no to him. She tried but her heart belonged to him.

I loved how this series was written. You get everyone's point of view even the bad guys!! I love that because i'm really nosy and i like to know what everyone is thinking and you get that with this series. 

The storyline and plot throughout kept you on the edge of your seat. The happily ever afters left me smiling big and happy.

All the characters i fell in love with and this book wraps up all their stories perfectly. It brought a tear to my eye seeing them all happy. 

Highly recommend this series. It's original and sexy and biker loving heaven!!! I'm seriously hoping for a Spartans Kids series. Please JC we NEED their stories!!! 

5 Amazing series stars!!
