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!


Cocky is the fifth and final book in the Spartan Riders MC Series, although it can be read as a standalone I would suggest at least reading a couple of the books in the series first. I feel this way for a few reasons the main one being there is an underlying thread that is present through each of the books and is wrapped up with this one and believe me to get the full impact of the ending you will want to have prior knowledge of Manuel Contreras and what he is fully capable of doing.

This was a really good ending to the series, things are tied up nicely and everyone gets their HEA we even a couple of surprise HFN/HEAs in this book! I have to admit one of them I was COMPLETELY SURPRISED about!!! But the main focus of this story is Moose and Mouse getting their HEA. I have to say after what Moose has recently been through with his nephew I am thrilled that he finally gets a little HAPPY in his life.

Kade "Moose" Hunter and Angel "Mouse" Grace have amazing chemistry together and its not surprise that they are knocking boots every chance they get. I love the independent side of Mouse, she may be shy and quite but she definitely isn't helpless! Moose is one of the Spartan brothers that I was most curious about especially after getting to know a little more about him in Brash I will admit my heart broke for him in that book. I was thrilled when I saw that this was his book, for me he needed to get his own HEA with a good woman and may be even start a family of his own like his brothers.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys biker books/ MC Romances but as I suggested earlier in my review read a few books in the series if not all of them don't start with this one because it is the last in the series and then you will know how everything plays out.  Happy Reading!!!


A wave of icy cold water connected dead center with his right eye, and Moose squeezed his eyes shut while scrubbing the butt of his palm over it to get rid of the uncomfortable, shrinking, burning sensation.
“Damnit, woman,” he growled, “you’re gonna pay for that.”
“Ooooo I’m so scared,” Angel taunted, throwing another load of water at him.
When he’d woken up this morning with a woody the size of Nebraska, he’d had nothing more on his mind than getting over to her place and getting inside her, but the ride over had been so nice, he couldn’t stand the idea of being cooped up indoors another minute. So when he’d arrived on her doorstep early and unexpected, finding Mouse still in her Hello Kitty pjs and her hair a mess, he’d told her to get her bikini and a towel and meet him outside.
She hadn’t been too happy being woken up nor him throwing his weight around, but she was getting used to it. Shooting him the stink-eye, she’d left the door hanging open as she turned and disappeared back into the apartment.
Ten minutes later, she was on the back of his bike in a pair of tiny jean shorts and a white tank top with the fluorescent pink and yellow bikini top strings peeking out the top with her sexy legs on the outside of his where he could reach down and touch them anytime he wanted and her hot body fit snug up against his back. Every bump on the long stretch of highway bounced his favorite parts of hers, increasing his need for her more and more by the mile.
But as much as he wanted her, Moose wanted to test the theory that they might have more between them than just sex.
As much as he enjoyed it and wanted it every second of the day, the idea of giving her his patch was a serious one, and he needed to make sure that there was some substance to their relationship before he made such a huge commitment.
If he did. He was bouncing back and forth with that decision more than a kid on a pogo stick.
The problem was, even if Moose hadn’t been entertaining the idea of making thing between them more permanent, Angel was pretty fucking awesome. He couldn’t be around her without smiling, and they were always laughing about something. And when they weren’t laughing, they were having amazing, world shaking sex. Plus, she was hot as hell and just as smart.
What wasn’t there to like?
Clearing his eyes, Moose dug his toes into the mud and trudged through the water, his intense focus right on her. Angel wasn’t getting away, and he knew just how he was going to make her pay.
“Whoa now, big man,” she said, palms held out in front of her as she tried to bounce backward away from him, each bob revealing her water-slicked breasts and pointed nipples that made his dick harder than the wall of rock that hid them from prying eyes in three directions.
“You play with fire, Mouse, and now you’re about to get burned.” When she was within arm’s reach, he lunged, and she screamed. Falling back into the water in her haste to get away from him, she went under before reappearing a second later, her feet slipping out from under her and giving him a leg up.
Moose was on her fine ass before she could get any traction. Banding an arm around her narrow waist, he fisted her wet hair and held her head tight, immobile. Those wild, green eyes stared up at him, daring him to keep going.
