Publisher's Summary

He's such a bad idea. This roommate thing is not going to work.

Kendra is a messy-haired, pajama-pants-wearing little ball of sass. The first thing she does is try to make friends with my random from the night before - giving her all sorts of bad ideas.

I don’t date. I don’t use words like girlfriend, or I’ll text you later. F--k that. Relationships aren’t for me. I’ll give a woman a night she won’t forget, but once it’s over, I’m out. 

I keep people at a distance, and I have my reasons. But Kendra starts getting under my skin. And when my life crashes and burns - literally - Kendra is the only person on whom I can count.  

I’m not built for relationships, and Kendra is not a one-night stand. But living with this girl sleeping one room away might just be the thing that kills me.

Cocky Roommate is a stand-alone hate-to-lovers roommate romance with a definite HEA. It contains mature language and content and is intended for a mature audience. Fair warning, Weston is a straight up asshole. Or is he?

Not Afraid to Fall in Love

I was so excited to start Kendra's story after meeting her in Book Boyfriend! Initially, I was a little turned off by the hero, Weston, because when we first meet him, he is a grade A, world class a-hole! He says some incredibly rude and offensive things to Kendra and it was hard not to feel the hurt and anger right along with her at his callous remarks. I love a good anti-hero though, and Claire Kingsley did a fantastic job of showing that there was much more to Weston than what we are led to believe. Don't get me wrong, he really is a jerk at times, but I liked that he didn't come to some miraculous epiphany and completely change. He's learning and changing, but there are going to be growing pains and missteps. Ultimately, I loved that Kendra could see through the masks and with a little forced confinement (hello, roommate!), Weston saw her too. The ending and epilogue was wonderful and though things moved quickly, it worked well given Weston and Kendra's personalities.

Teddy Hamilton was perfect as always and I loved his narration as Weston! He is always the right amount of sexy and sweet, without being over the top. Lucy Rivers is a new to me narrator and she was a little more serious sounding than I imagined bubbly Kendra to be, but I still really enjoyed her performance. Some of the chapters were more emotional and I thought she really shined during those moments. I do wish that Claire Kingsley's afterword in the ebook would have been included with the audio. It explains a lot of the author's thought process behind Weston's character and gives a lot of insight into his actions and motivations. I definitely recommend checking it out after finishing the audio if you get a chance.

Catching up with Mia, Alex, and Caleb was great and I found Mia's analysis about the 3 types of a-holes not only accurate but also very entertaining! ;) I'm really looking forward to Caleb's book next! As much as I enjoy an anti-hero, nothing beats an all around good guy with a heart of gold!

Great story. Audiobook chapter issue.

I enjoyed this story a lot. Great second book to the series. I love how there is more nods to romance readers. I look forward to book 3. I was expecting more drama than there was, but am glad there was less. I am not a big fan of much drama anymore. This story flowed very well.

The narrators did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life! Will gladly listen to them separately and together.

The audiobook is missing chapter 21 and chapter 23 is repeated. chapter 21 gives you more insight into Ian and Weston's partnership as well as Ian's character.
Still happy this story has an audiobook, though. I laughed in so many places.

Female narrator

The female narrator should slow down her speech a bit. It's like she was rushing through the words.

Female Narrator Makes this a Difficult Listen

I enjoyed getting to continue following the characters in this series, and Claire Kingsley is a great storyteller. However, the female narrator sounds almost exactly like the voice on the Alexa device so when she reads for Kendra and Weston, they come across in a lackluster, robotic way. It made it difficult to feel the attraction between the pair.

3.5 stars!

I really liked this one. It wasn't as funny as Book Boyfriend, more of a serious story, but still good. It was nice to see the rest of the family that we met in the previous book, and I love that it's set in the Pacific Northwest where I live.

Loved it! 5 BRIGHT STARS!

This is the first time that by the end of the story I am rooting for the redemption of a$$hole male lead.

This story was very enjoyable. Loved the heroine, and how her selfless and sunny disposition ends up captivating the beast that was the hero.

I liked very much that the heroine was able to give so much of herself without being a doormat, while the hero sulked, brooded, and barked.

The narration was enjoyable.

Credit worthy story.

Good book

Kendra is Alex sister from "Book Boyfriend". Weston oh Weston is like a cute puppy with a armadillo shell. The way they fell for each other was great with Kendra cracking that shell or getting underneath to the loving puppy. HEA made me cry a little.

Can't rate narrators individually

I gave the performance 2 stars because Lucy Rivers did a TERRIBLE job. She pretty much read it in a monotone voice and her male impersonations are even worse. Teddy Hamilton breathed life into this book but I dreaded every time it wasn't his chapter.

Great enemies to lovers

Perfect grumpy hero and sunshine heroine story. Weston starts off as a complete jerk but as the story goes on he completely redeems himself. I love Kendra and you can’t help but fall in love with her. Lucy Rivers and Teddy Hamilton were a great pair to bring Weston and Kendra’s story to life and the narration by them was amazing. This was a fun story and would definitely recommend.

Kendra and Weston

Surgeon/player Weston meets his match with freelancer roommate Kendra. Narration and story were very well done. Weston proved to be a typical swoony asshole alpha that gets knocked down a peg by an accident, and a strong woman who wouldn't leave him alone.
